I'm honestly not sure what to make of this information. If true, it's a REALLY big deal in the scientific community. If false, it's just simply
more fuel for the popular anti-Lazar fire.
I am not qualified to make such a judgement, even with having a general understanding of both classical and quantum physics. This information, as far
as testing, of even seeing how it looks on paper, is well out of my scope of knowledge.
Fact is though, there is a bit of plausability behind it, especially given the small percentage of everything there is to know that humans (as a
collective race) actually know (the last estimate I heard was roughly 0.1% of everything, and that may even be liberal). The more our technology
grows, the more we prove old scientific theories and well respected facts false. Any time I make this statement, I'm reminded of the speech that
Tommy Lee Jones gave to Will Smith in "MIB" just before Will Smith joined: "1000 years ago, everyone "knew" the earth was the center of the
universe. 500 years ago, everyone "knew" the Earth was flat, and just ten minutes ago, you "knew" humans were alone on this planet. Just think
of what you'll "know" tomorrow." Even though it's a quote from a work of fiction, there is a very real ring of truth to the statement. Even
with the rumored ultra-high advancements in black-ops technology, the human race still knows next to nothing about the universe as a whole.
One statement I will agree with is that science is actually standing in the way of stepping forward. This has been the case for most of human
existence. When we were living in caves, fire was brought by the gods through the lightning and could not be harnessed. It took a "revolutionary"
to say "look, I can make fire, just by rubbing these sticks together." Likely, he was persecuted for shattering the beliefs of others. Columbus
had an extremely hard time finding ships and funding for his exploration of the Atlantic, in hopes of finding a new trade route to India. This was
because he was thought to be crazy for actually thinking the world was round. He was finally able to dupe Spain into giving him the ships and
funding. Even though he never found the trade route he was looking for, he did "discover" North America for the Europeans. He thought that he had
landed in India, which is why the North American indigenous peoples are known as "Indians." Nikola Tesla had created some very revolutionary
advances in the world of electrical physics, yet died broke because people refused to believe that he had been able to break scientific laws regarding
electrical engineering. Even I myself have faced unwilling scientists and funding groups in my own electrical research. I believe that I have
actually developed a "free energy" device, though only on paper, as the needed materials to build it properly are rather expensive (at least in the
quantities needed), and I have been unable to afford to build one on my own. When approaching people for funding for further study into the device,
I've been greeted with many closed doors and much scorn, even though the device works on paper, and through computer models has been shown to be at
The world needs more radical scientists, willing to look outside the scope of known science. We, as a race, know next to nothing about the universe,
and in that limited knowledge, most scientists have neglected to realize the simple theory that in an infinite universe, there are infinite
possibilities. Just because we don't "know" it today, does not mean we won't "know" it tomorrow.
After that extended diatribe, I'll sum up. Humans know almost nothing. Anything is possible. Step outside the laws of science, and accept that
something other than what we "know" may be true. Lazar may be hokey in some (or many) regards, but at the same time, we really don't know.
The "agnostic" approach to science is the best one: There's more to know, but we don't know what.
