Michiu Kaku on Multi-verses - July 28th 2016, 05:47 AM

Just a heads up, this video was incorrectly named, "Michiu Kaku on Seven Heavens in Quran". Islam wasn't even mentioned once in the video. Buddhism and Christianity are though.
This video is basically about a fascinating theory that could either reshape the scientific theories about the origin of the universe or falter, depending on the findings of a space... device called LISA (station, telescope, ) that is coming in about 6 years. This new idea is that instead of one ever-expanding universe, universes spawn new universes, as I understood it, through black holes. The black hole appears to be not just a gravitational pull that sucks everything in and... crushes it? Disappears? I'm not quite sure, but you'd ask the question, where does that stuff go? But the idea is, the black hole leads into a white hole, shooting everything from one universe out of the other end of the black hole to create a new universe. This portal appears to be a so-called "umbilical cord" to the womb of another universe.
I'd highly recommend watching this, it's incredibly interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bh3-I3mfYc
I'm feeling somewhat smug right now because he mentioned string theory and I've brought up string theory (not necessarily by name, I usually refer to it as "dimensional physics") in the past, and to hear a brilliant mind like Kaku talk about it and explain why it makes sense makes me feel pretty good.

Awesome, I haven't got a chance to watch it yet, but I'm excited to later today (in classes right now -- yay classes on a Friday in summer). String theory has been replaced? For lack of a better word, by m-theory (which unifies string theory). It's our best current guess. Anyways, thanks for posting this I'm excited. I'll edit my post later after watching.

[edit]

So, I've seen this before. It's incredible how simplistic Kaku can make complex physical phenomenas seem. String theory, namely M-Theory, seem very likely to be true. Of course, things could change in the future as our knowledge of blackholes expand. Something I've always wondered is if blackholes store the energy as potential energy, and perhaps release it on an Ma/Ga frequency. There's also the recent witnessing of the corona from NASA which releases X-rays from the blackhole (which is really freaking strange).

The one thing that bothers me is how reporters, people, and scientist talk about how this warps our understanding of philosophy and theology. Science has always done this. Capernicus, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, etc. It's nothing new. I think the reality is that the religious will just say, "well who created the other Universes?" Which I think is the problem. Since religion has been around for thousands of years, we've been taught to ask "WHO created," rather than "WHAT created." Rather than letting the WHAT possibly be a WHO, but WHAT is a more appropriate question. i.e. what birthed a cat? not who birthed a cat, etc. (I say this because my cat is being super annoying right now).

Well, thanks for the video.
