None of those- This one is real
They've gone into plaid
Lmao.. Why didn't I expect that? I am ashamed..
Couldn't resist could be true you know... "expect the unexpected"
Sort of related.
Is space like a chessboard?
That was a good movie.
Back to the topic though- my wonder
If all of the elements in the universe were/are/will be born from the nuclear reactions within stars...
- Is there another reaction in the universe that can produce different forms of matter? Are there dark elements?
It depends on what dark matter actually is, if it even exists. It could be a heavy "sterile" neutrino for example. Or, it could just be the zero point field.
Dark matter and dark energy likely.. Both of which are extremely different. Einstein said his "cosmological constant" was his biggest blunder. But it's proving to likely be, one of the biggest discoveries ever..
I fear.. Exponential growth... eesh.. Once dark energy leaves the constrains of dark matter. there will be no opposing force, to slow it down. Therefor the universe will exponentially expand.. Exponentially speeding toward annihilation.. Oh joy..
I can't recall, but I don't think it's a proven fact that
a) the rate of expansion has been uniform over time. IOW, the universe has always been expanding. It's very fabric that is - the zero point field I would assume. But I don't think the rate of acceleration has been constant. I just can't think of anything to search on that would let me narrow it down quickly, plus I'm a little typed out.
b) the rate of expansion is uniform. It may be accelerating, but do we know for a fact that it's accelerating at the same rate everywhere in the universe. That shouldn't be too hard to test, so I assume this both a and b have already been answered. Someone else's turn to contribute.
This might help. It's old, but from a reputable source.
Dark matter is normal matter's superpartner. It's the same reaction.
An example of the "we don't know as much as we'd like to think we do"
statement I make in the title.
Watching a special right now and the scientist says "To have complex life, like we have on earth, you need oxygen".. ugh.. As if something couldn't simply learn to convert, another gas into fuel, in the same manner..
Dark elements.. Idk, I kind of think of dark matter and dark energy as dark elements. As they were theoretically created, in the very first moment, of the big bang. Where as most complex elements, were made in stars after wards.
If no one else is going to say it..
Tell me you did not just call the 'higgs boson' a 'hicks particle' lol
I'm still trying to figure out what went "bang", and where did whatever went "bang" come from?
No perceptual insight here all I have to say is that Earth is definitely flat.
Pretty sure it was a supernova don't take my word for it though, I wasn't around back then
Entire Universe is flat. If holographic principle and string theory are right.
What went supernova before the universe existed?
I'm just playing devil's advocate here. I'm all for theories, but when there is a huge hole in the theory it presents a bit of a problem.
Such as ...
Everyone knows Hicks is the awesome one.. lol.
I always call it that.. Never saw Aliens?
Hicks kicks ass! HIggs boson.. that better?
That's why I said it ...... LMAO
IKR.. It's funny because it makes no sense when you think about it.. It wasnt "BIG" It was infinitely small. And it wasn't a bang. There is no sound in space..lol..
I think God just poked the tip of his finger into a puddle and wala..
and Lol Kreij.. that picture.. Maybe a little more effort for step two.. lol... perfect..
Thinking about that statement. There are tons of possibilities within that train of thought.. I mean if we have all these visible elements.. We may very well, have just as many, invisible elements. IE "dark" elements.
Ok, lets dive into philosopy.
We are here because the very matter that the universe is made up of makes us possible. Counter that!
Even if this is us LOLz:
I'm just glad I look more like the big guy on top, than the fraggles below..lol.. Where r the doozers?
It'd suck to be that small, everything trying to eat you all the time.. Eesh..
Counter point ! : We are here because without us there is no one to look at the rest of the matter in the universe, thus making its existance of no worth. Therefore the universe exists because of us.
I love this thread. lol
Yes! If there is a supernova and no one can see it, did it make light? LOL!
If prior to the existance of the universe there was nothing but a dark void, and then "nothing" exploded, it would mean that photon were instantaneously created (even though they never existed before) in order to produce light.
So ... following that logic, the big explosion (of nothing) created all kinds of stuff so that the universe could be filled with something to look at.
I think you just made my brain hemorage.. Just a little bit...
Kinda like the "If a tree falls in the forest and no ones around to hear it, who gives a shit" statement? lol..
Separate names with a comma.
