Scientists from the University of Helsinki are using the TARDIS as a model of how our universe might work — namely, that it seems to be bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. They call this theory “TARDIS spacetime,” which sounds like a pretty awesome spin-off.

So…what exactly is TARDIS spacetime attempting to explain? Why, the mysterious acceleration of the universe, of course!

Imagine due to overpopulation we are forced to build houses like the TARDIS that are bigger on the inside than the outside....

So what they are saying is, basically, that the universe could be the size of a marble, but on the inside of it it's vast, kind of like on Men In Black? That's an interesting and extremely plausible theory.

It would be very interesting!

I must ask...

What is it about this theory that makes you feel it is extremely plausible?

Sir I am just passing on some very interesting information.

I actually meant to say "possible," but plausible works also. Plausible meaning "reasonable." Sure, I see it as a reasonable theory. Our universe could easily be the size of a fingernail "outside" but massive-seeming inside. It all boils down to perspective.

Speaking of the TARDIS. Do this:

Click this Google Maps link:
Earl's Court Road

Then double click on the double arrow in front of the police call box.

I don't see a double arrow. Where is it?

It should go to Street View after a moment. Do you see the blue box?
Move your cursor around on the street a bit. The double arrow should appear.

I can't imagine why you would appreciate it.
You know you can move around inside, right?

Yes. Interesting theory , and it would also explain how the universe can fit on the back of a turtle.

The thing is, I don't really see the TARDIS that way. The inside is only perceived as bigger than the outside.


What is really going on is the interior of the TARDIS is not a separate spacetime, it is everyplacetime. You could wander around inside it on foot and arrive at anytime/when but that would take the same amount of time it would in real spacetime. So instead, the mechanism of the TARDIS (who's name is Idris, or Sexy if you are the Doctor) just moves the exterior representation of the reality around and thus creates a shortcut to your destination.

So, while the theory these guys have is cool. It really has nothing to do with the TARDIS because the TARDIS is not really bigger on the inside.

I see the double arrow now, but it doesn't work. When I double click on it, it just moves me up the street

That's very sad. You're missing something that's cool. The level of coolness would depend on how much you like Dr. Who, of course.

Can you try a different browser?

Yeah, I just tried it with a different browser and it worked this time. Absolutely cool!

Thanks for the heads up... I kinda assumed that is why people open threads. None-the-less, thanks for the confirmation...

I understand what you are saying. I just do not know what evidence you may have that points to this theory as being one that is 'extremely plausible', 'extremely possible', or 'extremely reasonable'.

The best thing the universe has in common with Doctor Who is Clara Oswald, imnho.
