Hello ATS and happy New Years to all. I am MR MASK and I have returned once again to share a video I have recently made. This one is all about the value given to the energy density of the vacuum of space. And it is also one of the most mind blowing properties of our Universe as a whole.

The video is in the form of a free form talk placed over video game footage (yes, all my vids are commentary over video games). The video is about 5 mins long and details many interesting facts and theories about the cosmological constant.

For those unaware of what makes the Cosmological Constant so odd and worthy of blowing-minds, it has to do with the incredibly small value that it takes. 10^120. That is one point to the 10 to the 120, or a point followed by 120+ zeros following. Nothing observed in our reality is even close to such an impossibly precise number and some say this proves everything from a God to an endless Multiverse.

I remain on no one side of any fence. But I do present to you "The Cosmological Constant Blows my Mind".



HUGS TO ALL!

MM

Will watch when I have time. Please tell me the game audio doesn't interfere with your monologuing.

Ya, I wanted to do a vid that gave the new years a sense of possibility. I hope you have a wonderful new year bro and thanks for watching!

Yes sir, #23 is done and in the can and just in time for the New Year. I hope you have a fun time celebrating the turn of the calendar year and stay safe in the process. But not too safe! Thanks for the welcome back. Just got new technology to make the vids HD and I can now post with no problems…heck I don't even have to wait 5 mins for a page to load! HAPPY NEW ONE!!

I always make sure the game footage don't make too much noise (hardly any) and almost all my commentaries have zero to do with gaming. I am often told by people who watch these things that they don't even play vid games and still watch…so i think you are safe.

Sadly I can't promise my voice don't sound like a mutated muppet duck…that just can't be helped.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hope you dig the vid!

I've enjoyed your videos for a long time now. Interesting subject matter on top of gameplay.

Can't tell you how glad I am to see that Campkill can't be killed, after all it took to make it happen (dresses included).

I wish we could just throw out the phrase, "...the universe is expanding at an accelerated rate." Simple observation tells us that's not really what's happening.

And does the cosmological constant describe the universe, or does the universe define the cosmological constant? That is, if we lived in a different universe, say an older or a younger one, and our observations of what is going on were different, would not the cosmological constant also be different?

I for one believe that the cosmological constant and relativity theory, and our religious love and devotion to them are screwing us, blinding us, making us slaves to a world that is incorrectly described by mathematics and it's arbitrary nature.

If you like it then you better put a number on it... then you can't get rid of it.

If I remember correctly, Einstein discarded the cosmological constant (or at least disavowed it) because it was simply a number he made up to fix calculations that didn't work out. It was a fudge factor with no meaning, meant to fill a gap in understanding.

During this video, I don't think there was any mention of a meaning for this constant... just the statement that it was important for some reason. Without that reason, I don't think we can say Einstein made a mistake here. What he was saying is that there is something wrong with this -- and it can be patched with this number. This isn't the solution, but I've gotten it as close as I can.

Until it has a meaning, it's not a solution... just a number that magically makes things work. Much like Dark Energy and Dark Matter. These are things that make the numbers work, but which we haven't and cannot observe right now. We'll get back to you on that.

Most likely, Dark Matter and Dark Energy are vast groups of forces and particles and interactions we have not yet even conceived of or measured, and not any one distinct thing.

I agree that the cosmological constant is interesting, but largely because we can't tell what it means yet. Maybe it's a number meant to represent "...and all that other stuff"

"cosmological constant" seems to imply a universally universal factor. All present and unchanging. Maybe that's why he said it was a fudge factor, because we haven't identified that value yet.

Thanks so much bro! I wanted to get one more science vid up for 2013. And this was the result. I appreciate the kind words and happy New Year!

Hey Mr.Siff I caught this on your camperkillercommentary the other day and broke the like button for ya. I'd like to see you rap and kill campers to David Paliedes work on missing kids and bigfoot that would be rad he is kind of like dr. Jaques in regards to those phenomenon. And happy new years buddy, you going to wear your party dress tonight w00t w00t

Cosmological Constant refers to the expansion of space, and this expansion happens due to vacuum energy. Dark Energy is this vacuum energy. It's like anti-gravity that acts on a very large scale.

I believe in the multiverse theory and that we are anchored to this one by the union of matter and essense, and that when we dream we have escaped to roam the multiverse if be it just for a little while.

Do you got any literature on that or a link, that sounds like an interesting read.

Interesting video, but it's not that precise and your own evidence proves it. According to your own video, prior to 1998 we thought the cosmological constant was zero, and we thought we could exist just fine. So if it can be zero and it's no problem, it doesn't follow to me that some non-zero value is fine-tuned. Now we think it's slightly more than zero, and we still think the universe is just fine.

I thought you were going to talk about the vacuum catastrophe which is the discrepancy between naive theoretical approaches to calculating vacuum energy, compared to what is actually observed. That's a major unsolved problem in physics.

I ran into the same issue looking into abiogenesis and singularity theory its interesting you point that out here, his video is entertaining as hell though, and nice to see you around Arbitraguer!

Scientists only speculated that the cosmological constant was zero before they had hard proof that the universe was expanding. Before that most scientists liked to believe that the expansion was slowing down because that seemed like the most logical explanation. Once they were certain that the universe is expanding then they were forced to accept the existence of dark energy / the cosmological constant.
