Let's see how clearly I can explain this. We think of empty space as, well... empty, the epitome of nothingness. But as our understanding of physics has evolved we have realized that it's not truly empty. Space is filled with fields. There is a field for every subatomic particle. One for electrons, up quarks, down quarks, neutrinos and so on. In empty space these fields are basically zero, flat, nil. But it's impossible to make them perfectly zero so there are always some quantum fluctuations in the fields, even in a perfect vacuum. These are sometimes called virtual particles but they should really just be thought of as little disturbances in the field. Vacuum fluctuation play a role mediating the interactions of subatomic particles but they don't really have an impact on the large-scale structure of the universe, EXCEPT during inflation, right after the big bang when the universe increased in size 10^26 times. Due to this rapid expansion, those tiny fluctuations were blown up to the scale of the observable universe. And we know this by looking at the cosmic microwave background radiation where we can see slightly hotter and cooler parts of the early universe that correspond to density fluctuations. And it is these density fluctuations that allowed matter to clump together into large structures like the gigantic gas clouds that would go on to contain stars and planets. In case the video isn't clear, this is what I've been trying to say.

That's why god can't exist 100% nor 0% And it can't be, that there is 100% free will nor 0% of that.. What if the uncertainty principle itself can't be 100% exactly xD well.. that's why we call them theories To assume anything to be absolute would be crazy.. well relatively crazy.. And at some point it would be better to eat than do think of stuff like that

I don't know if I am wrong, but i telate the real world with computer generated world ( virtual ) In computer everything is made up by the combinations of zreros and ones , in which zero means nothing (closed sircuit),, In real world ,everything is just ripples in a field of vaccum but with different excitement levels and orientation patterns . I always used to think about vaccum as not really empty but something undetectable by our means

Genuine question - where did the quantum vacuum come from? It requires space and energy right? Is the common view that a quantum vacuum has always existed and is necessary? I vaguely remember Sean in another video saying he thought the quantum state was contingent but on what? Surely there are theories on how it came to be?

The cosmic space (as a whole) is homogenous, isotopic, smooth (flat) 1 - The cosmic space is very cold (the temperature is about zero). Then, there is possibility to use the ''theory of ideal gas'' (has temperature T=0K) and say, ''the cosmic space is filled with Boltzmann's mass-molar particles (k)'' 2 - The cosmic space is very cold (the temperature is about zero). Then, there is possibility to use the ''theory of black body'' (has temperature T=0K) and say, '' ''the cosmic space is filled with Planck's energy particles of action (h)'' 3 - Then is possible to guess, that interaction between (k) and (h) particles can change the homogenous, isotopic, smooth (flat) structure of the cosmic (vacuum) state. ---

I think it is just a supposition that 'nothingness' or space is filled with all possible 'fields' and anywhere there is excitation in the field , energy in the field there will be the particle (2:38). Again it doe snot solve the question, where the excitation came from that stirred the space filled with the fields? I feel the explanation is as hopeless as a creator, all are just suppositions!

@Nug U ok.... so there's evidence that "strongly suggests" it's accurate. Which is why I BELIEVE it's most likely the way it happened. But, I think it would be MUCH more accurate to say "we think" or "we believe" or "we surmise", than to talk about it as though it's an absolute. Because that's really all we CAN say about it. I just really despise when scientists talk about subjects like this as though our current understanding is "absolutely correct".... when in actuality that's why many say "our current understanding". THAT, I don't have a problem with. Because you never know when someone is going to come along and make another discovery that causes us to have completely rethink everything we thought we knew about it. See what I mean?

Once again, Fourier analysis easily illustrate what is going on. When a shock wave is coming, the way to generate such wave shape is to add so many higher frequency harmonics. Suppose, for example, that after 1 micro second, the universe reached 2 light year in diameter. First, that mean the universe expanded about 1 million times the speed of light. Let's assume that from center to the circumference, we get a concentration of matter that approximate one half cycle of a sinusoidal wave. One half cycle / cycle/microsecond = 500 khz If that wave has a sharp attack instead of a half sinusoidal, then the harmonics will be 1 mhz, 2 mhz, etc Brief, an observer standing at 1 light year from the big bang will perceive gravitational waves starting at 1 mhz and extending in upper integer multiples of that fundamental. The intensity of that wave is quite high since the weight of the entire is still concentrated in that expanding sphere

There was no big bang. That is a theory proven wrong. Understanding conservation of energy is partly key in understanding how wrong this guy is. Understanding how the accretion of matter works is also partly key to understanding how bodies within the universe formed. From a soup of hot, hydrogen plasma, electrically charged particles and time, we have the first stars, which were the first of those bodies. Those stars were veracious in apatite. They consumed large quantities of hydrogen until some either burst as a supernova or turned into a black hole under the intense gravity. Those first stars seeded the universe with more complex elements and pushed matter around with their explosive forces and gravity. This in turn formed the first galaxies. Time proceeded to tick away through the universe as cosmic bodies either formed or got destroyed. Then after quite a long time, humans began to observe the after effects in a mature universe and proposed how it all began. Many get this wrong, very wrong. There was and is no great creator ghost in the sky, no Heaven, no Hell, no Big Bang. Perhaps many bangs all around after things began to heat up. Just simply observe star forming regions of nebula to see stars form with planetary discs to get a glimpse. Those Nebulae are from massive stars that exploded very long ago. Check out galaxies that are over 12 billion light years away, and fully mature. Does this make sense if at that distance those galaxies should still be very young in our observations? I think not. I believe that the observation of quasars that have a redshift that supposedly makes them appear much farther away than they are is also proof that theories are wrong. The fact that Galaxies are moving in many directions, some faster than others is also proof of the never existing big bang. I am positive that there never was a big bang. Even with the most supermassive black holes, the matter can only be smashed down so far, it continues to grow slowly as it consumes matter. Black holes seem to be quite stable and never simply explode. All matter in the universe can not possibly be smashed down infinitely small, down to the size of the point of a needle. That is not only flawed thinking, but stupid.
Lana År sedan
The CMB does not prove or hold up the Big Bang Theory. There was loads of lies connected with the CMB as there is so very little difference in the field (3 degrees in fact). Background radiation is observable but proves and supports none of the theories that were discussed. It only proves that there may be radioactive matter in a fairly smooth field, perhaps a dense soup so to speak, that we can't visualize as it produces no visible light and is not illuminated enough to be observed. As far as we know, it is like a gigantic nebula surrounding the observable universe. But that is only a theory. We know little beyond the OBSERVABLE. In fact, we are still infantile in our knowledge of the universe and how things actually came to be and how things work.
Lana År sedan
Dark Energy and Dark Matter do not exist. It too is only a theory to plug holes in a flawed theory. I find it uniquely stupid that it was said in the video that everything slowed down and then sped up. Lets just say for instance I am wrong and this fictitious Dark crap actually existed, it would have existed all along throughout time. Has anyone proven without a doubt that Dark Energy and Dark Matter exists? NO. There are no samples or proof that it is a real thing. It supposedly makes up near some 90% of everything that is not normal, visible matter. Yet, it has never been actually observed, sampled, witnessed in any actual factual way. Perhaps one day, people/scientists will pull their heads out of their asses and stop treating theories as fact and as a religion that is indisputable. Theories are NOT facts.

J P 2 år sedan
Ada Cougars What do you mean by "corrupted"? What do you mean by "god"? What do you mean by "build the heavens and the earth", do you have some "proof" for that, did you see it happen? A scientific theory is not "just" an idea. Here's a quote from Wikipedia: "A scientific theory is an explanation of an aspect of the natural world that can be repeatedly tested and verified in accordance with scientific method, using accepted protocols of observation, measurement, and evaluation of results. Where possible, theories are tested under controlled conditions in an experiment. In circumstances not amenable to experimental testing, theories are evaluated through principles of abductive reasoning. Established scientific theories have withstood rigorous scrutiny and embody scientific knowledge. The meaning of the term scientific theory (often contracted to theory for brevity) as used in the disciplines of science is significantly different from the common vernacular usage of theory. In everyday speech, theory can imply an explanation that represents an unsubstantiated and speculative guess, whereas in science it describes an explanation that has been tested and widely accepted as valid. These different usages are comparable to the opposing usages of prediction in science versus common speech, where it denotes a mere hope. The strength of a scientific theory is related to the diversity of phenomena it can explain and its simplicity. As additional scientific evidence is gathered, a scientific theory may be modified and ultimately rejected if it cannot be made to fit the new findings; in such circumstances, a more accurate theory is then required. That doesn’t mean that all theories can be fundamentally changed (for example, well established foundational scientific theories such as evolution, heliocentric theory, cell theory, theory of plate tectonics etc). In certain cases, the less-accurate unmodified scientific theory can still be treated as a theory if it is useful (due to its sheer simplicity) as an approximation under specific conditions. A case in point is Newton's laws of motion, which can serve as an approximation to special relativity at velocities that are small relative to the speed of light. Scientific theories are testable and make falsifiable predictions. They describe the causes of a particular natural phenomenon and are used to explain and predict aspects of the physical universe or specific areas of inquiry (for example, electricity, chemistry, and astronomy). Scientists use theories to further scientific knowledge, as well as to facilitate advances in technology or medicine. As with other forms of scientific knowledge, scientific theories are both deductive and inductive, aiming for predictive and explanatory power. The paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould wrote that "...facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts.""
Noah Watkins

See the problem is you keep saying theory but a theory is an idea used to account for a situation. The situation is the Big Bang and it’s just an idea that someone had. You are probably one of those corrupted kids that think what other people think, even tho some people say that god build the heavens and the earth. So how are you going to tell those people that they’re wrong when they have the same proof you do.
J P 2 år sedan
Ada Cougars "Did I see it happen" What a stupid question. One person seeing something is never "proof" of anything and only in mathematics you have proofs. You have access to the internet so you have the tool to find the evidence. But basically the redshift of galaxies means they were closer together in the past and the big bang theory predicted the CMB which was discovered and the mixture of elements in the universe is predicted by the theory as well.

In order to create something you have to be outside of it. God is outside of everthing that he made. Just like many have said. What crashed into what to make the galaxies? Some may say atoms. Where did the atoms come from? and it just keeps going. Where did the things come from that created the atoms? God. If you come across a massive ball in the woods you aren't going to think of where the ball came from. You know there had to be a creator of it. How come we see the earth and how complex it is and think that there is no creator?

At least science has the backbone to say, "we don't know for sure, but this mathematically tested, visually observed, evidence based theory seems to fit." Science is completely open to being wrong and willing to change course when a better theory is brought to the forefront, when all religions do is say, "well, God works in mysterious ways," and refuse to bring forth even the smallest shred of evidence to support their beliefs and claims. Religions absolutely refuse to be wrong and change as evidence contrary to their beliefs and claims is presented, which is the crux of what is causing the sharp declines of membership all over the world. People are waking up, and it's about time.
