#2

my first thought is I cant wait til your signature gets edited!<br><br>second thought is this is more appropriate in the catch all science thread we have in GD.<br><br>I think anyone with some interest in cosmology isn’t really surprised by our universe having a finite lifespan since this kind of thing is already predicated by heat death and similar theories, although the explanation is awfully strange. I want to know more about what he means by alternate universe.<br>

That guys is just wrong. Reality will never cease to exist. <br>

<br>That’s a very bold statement seeing as to how we can’t prove we exist, and even what we experience is only relative to us.  <br><br>

It’s not that one day  the universe will stop existing. It just won’t load properly anymore. Like the SRK forums.<br>

WTF!!! This isnt in my bible!

Pfft. We’ll have raised our atmospheric temperature well beyond habitable levels within an infinitesimal fraction of the time we have before our planet becomes a cinder, well before our planet becomes swallowed by the sun, and well well well well well well well well well welllllllll before this expanding alternate universe business.

Reality is just an illusion created by the mind of all sentient beings in the Universe. As long as there is someone observing/creating Reality, it will always exist. This Universal Holographic Fractal of ours have been in existence for at least 21 trillions years. <br><br></div>

The fossil fuel industry already has concrete plans to extract more than five times the amount of oil, coal, and gas necessary to cause an unstoppable decline in the habitability of this planet.

Why aren’t u guys playing MGR?

I disagree. I dont wake up to Olivia O Lovely and Flower Tucci shoving their asses in my face, and i think about that A LOT. Not to mention the other shit i think about: kittens, money, hoes, sex. yeah none of that is my reality, i think youre of it.


#16

why you guys even responding to I am Ah? he posts like a bot trying to promote vague brandless philosophy

The problem is that there is a finite amount of useful nuclear fuel. Uranium 235 makes up a very tiny fraction of uranium ore, and thorium, although theoretically better, is also finite and eventually would not be enough to fit projected demands. Heck, scientists are still lobbying to get its viability recognize.<br><br>We’re already using more oil than we’re digging up since the mid-1970s, and the gap will only grow from there.<br><br>Simply put, we’re fucked.<br><br><br>

We need to be using geothermal power anaerobic digestion to power our way to the future but nobody has the balls to stop big oil.   They just leak a few million barrels into the ocean and take a fine like a parking ticket lol.    We need Steven Seagal to save us from ourselves.<br>
