The biocentric universe...

Here's a good one...

This article shows how arrogant and egocentric mankind is. How little we understand our own theories, or more appropriately, how little journalists understand the scientific theories.

Things such as quantum physics, time, or the double slit experiment, and even Schrödinger's cat. These theories don't depict a universe in which we are "required" to observe it in order for it to exist. If this were the case, then we should have existed prior to it even existing. Or some other form of life of sorts would had to have existed. This is nothing more than religious garbage trying to make man center of the universe again.

How can our species be so advanced now, and yet so infinitely arrogant to think we are the very epiphany and center of all creation. It just boggles my mind that people think we are the reason that everything exists, or that some divine creator made us and only us. Or that he created others, but we are the chosen. I mean... grow the hell up people. Sheesh....

We may not understand how the universe works, yet we understand it better than the greeks did when they presumed Zeus was the controller of lightening, er don't think that way anymore do we? So why presume that we have the whole entirety of existence figured out just as our ancestors had thought? Are we really that arrogant? Can't we just grow up and accept that we're not all that is, that we are not a favorite species of some mythical being we made up in our heads? Can we not accept that we are not intelligent enough to know everything?

This is all to complex to comprehend all of, but I agree with you that we don't really know to much of anything and kind of make it up as we go.

But like with the goldielock theory, this is kind of stupid statment, because what exist in the universe , exist in the perameters it had to work with, so this is stupid statement how could something developed that could not within the design pontential.

Then again if we were a little bit smarter we could figure this all out, but this is not allowed at this time.

And yet, we assume that the entirety of the whole universe operates within the same physical parameters of our local observable universe. We assume that all that exists is all that we can see with our telescopes. We have never once assumed, that perhaps, there is more outside the range of what we can see. Maybe, perhaps.... there is more out there that doesn't operate within the same constants and variable as what we have observed. Maybe that is what is the missing mass, the so called dark energy/matter. We just assume so much and what doesn't fit, we make up to make it fit.
