Boltzmann brain

AWESOME & FEMALE: Twenty-First Century Science Writers | Sean Carroll

Here’s the video from a talk I gave at Skepticon V last month. It’s basically a superposition of a Higgs-boson talk with the From Particles to People talk. How is such a feat even possi…

Physicists have dreamed up some bizarre ideas over the years, but a decade or so ago they outdid themselves with the concept of Boltzmann brains – fully formed, conscious entities that form spontaneously in outer space.

Hypothetical conscious entities that randomly pop into existence may undermine our view of the universe – string theory may banish these Boltzmann brains

Isolated brains could randomly fluctuate into existence: Imagine you're an isolated brain floating lonely through the vast expanse of the Universe with all your thoughts and perceptions just figments of your imagination. There'd even be a name for you: you'd be a Boltzmann brain. Boltzmann brains are of interest to physicists, in particular to cosmologists. The idea is that, according to quantum mechanics, there is energy in empty space which can fluctuate, producing particles as it does so.

These 11 powerful beliefs will help you take control of your thoughts, build a positive belief system, and free yourself from negativity. READ MORE.

It's a big multiverse out there.

"Physicist Sean Carroll has become a bit of a rock star in geek circles by attempting to answer an age-old question no scientist has been able to fully explain: What is time?" Take the time to read, its fascinating
