I think this is an excellent thread, I wish I saw it earlier
But I think too many are jumping the gun
The presenter in the video did a good job in explaining things but when he spoke about if you ask an astrophysicist about sunspots they will talk
about the dynamo effect, the magnetic field and other such things that you can't see, like a genie does it is laughable.
The universe is full of things we can't see, like gravity and the behaviorism of the magnetosphere and other such things.
That made me dislike a few other things in the video as well.
And the entire argument that the sun is not independant but is being powered by the universe... okay well how come I can't see that power? lol
If he argued that hey we can't see the dynamo effect or the magnetic field to justiffy sunspots then I can say the same thing about the universe
powering the sun.
Also, if the universe is powering the sun then doens't that argue against the entire topic of stellar evolution?
If the sun is dependant on the universe and not a standalone entity, then why does it go through phases of stellar evolution and why do stars blow up
eventually? Does the universe one day decide to overdose massive stars so they become red giants? Why would the universe one day want the sun to
become a white dwarf eventually? Does the universe not want lifeforms in the vicinity after a few billion years?
I agree with many things the guy was saying, many things connect, it makes alot of sense. But I think he took his theory too far.
If the universe powered the sun than it would be safe to say that it powers everything. Which would mean that everything is purposeful.
But.. what's the purpose of a blazar for example?
Why do stars go supernovae unless they are independant?
