Loved the show I just finally got to listen to the whole thing!
When Michio Kaku was discussing how tiny universes are popping into existence all around us (at about 1:16:30 into the MP3), he didn't really discuss
the aspect of time with relation to these universes. For example, It's quite possible that these universes are popping into existence and the time
is much different than our own. So different that these tiny universes could even be created, eventually create life, and eventually collapse back
onto themselves all in a fraction of a second from our perspective. This is pretty insane for a few reasons. But to me it seems pretty wild because
of the idea of a universe being in every single atom in the universe (or multiple universes in every atom).
Perhaps our universe, itself, is simply an extremely time-dilated drop of fluid somewhere on some massive planet in some massive solar system in yet a
larger galaxy and larger universe and so on... That idea is mind boggling..
And this brings up a very interesting thought experiment with regards to multiverse theory. If there are, literally, infinite universes and every one
is slightly different (perhaps even just a subatomic particle out of place), it brings up this possibility. If there are infinite universes all the
time, then there must be some universe where we are existing inside this very same drop of fluid in an even larger-scale universe. That universe is
existing in yet a larger-scale universe, etc..etc..
And the idea of time travel and technology also comes into play with the multiverse theory Michio Kaku was discussing. If there really are infinite
universes, then in one of those universes, a technological civilization discoverd time travel, discovered how to come to our universe and eventually
to earth (in what we would come to call a UFO) and eventually make contact with people from earth. We haven't had the last part yet, but we
certainly see UFO's. So I don't really think science can completely rule out the UFO phenomenon.
The LHC in Geneva is about to be fired up for small-scale testing before it moves up to full-scale testing in order to work out all the bugs in the
system. One of the biggest scientific discoveries they COULD make is the existence of other dimensions (perhaps even scientific evidence of multiple
universes). They could even use the LHC to determine what the shape of these universes are (which is pretty mind-blowing in itself).
Thanks all for a great show! They didn't get to my question for Michio but I think it was one for the books.
