That's very interesting! The PLoS article is very extensive and pretty much over my head...Huh but I get the gist of it, I think Rolleyes

It also makes me wonder about some stuff I read about called "iCHELLs". Life-like cells that are made of metal. It seems only possible by being man made but I wonder if that will also end up in the debate at some point.

Read about it here: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn20...metal.html

RE: The elegant nature of science
This seems appropriate for this thread.

RE: The elegant nature of science
Anyone been talking, anywhere, about the Italian group that thought nutrinos went faster than the speed of light ?
Seems they may have been incorrect. Suprised I don't see it anywhere. Alright you brainiacs. Get busy.

Also, maybe Kurzweil was right. AI seems to be going great guns.

Yeah, I saw Michio Kaku shoot that down pretty quick after it came out. Observed super novas from space have long proved this to not be the case by measuring light from the explosion along with the neutrinos that were where they were supposed to be.

RE: The elegant nature of science
Almost certainly, this is redundant. I'm too lazy to read all the back pages.
There was a great PBS series last Fall, by Brian Greene, (Physicist at Columbia), with the same name as his book :
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/physics/ele...stein.html
It has 3 parts. "The Elegant Universe".

RE: The elegant nature of science
I very dislike the idea of parallel universes. I think understand the rational of it but, it just doesn't sit well with me. There's got to be something else to it. It's got to be something like what Berkeley Prof. Richard Muller explains about the electron in his 'Physics for future presidents' lectures. He says something to the effect that an electron can be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. As strange as that is- I think I've managed to wrap my head around it. But parallel worlds where I co-exist in an infinite number of possibilities is just *too* strange for me to handle.

That said, I used to think that quantum entanglement was too strange to believe as well. It seems lately that new ground is being made where quantum entanglement can actually be seen with the naked eye and while at room temperature. http://www.scientificamerican.com/articl...tanglement

I guess this should go here. Smile One of the most inspiring videos on the Internetz, for me at least. I mean, everything by Mr. Feynman is great, amirite? Big Grin
