Oh, and in case you still think very large groups of people will never synchronize, what do you think the global housing bubble was in the first place? ;-)

And what Keynes is really all about?

Was Ronald Regan a Keynesian when he got everyone to sync? ;-)

The universe is fractal.

Next question.

WOW !!!
Question...
If we embedded Boltzmann in the hospital in Dink's last link, do you think he would get the chance to make a phone call ?
I LOVE articles like this one.
Let me see... let's get the microscope out...
Why Boltzmann BRAINS for reincarnation ? Why not... Boltzmann hearts, for example ? Or Boltzmann spinal cords ?
Love the vocabulary along the line of "hatching". "Eternal" inflation...
I think that if you spin "logic" to its "logical" logic, you will end up with... absurdity.
Next to Boltzmann brains... believing in a Jew who rose from the dead after three days looks pretty tame, you guys...
My response to the fractal question and belief is over there on SuddenDebt.

My husband remarked to me that Boltzmann brains looks suspiciously like that old immortality of the soul theory...

Dr John said...

Interesting but stuff like this always leaves me feeling we are desperate for meaning in a universe that has none but what we wish to give it many times out of desperation. I can live with that but admit it does not promote any optimism. Keep putting this stuff up Thai.

I knew Debra would stop posting for about 2 seconds. ahah ahah ha. Welcome back Debra. John

I read that twice and cannot help but laugh at the thought of a brain floating out there in space all alone. I guess it's possible the random fluctuations permitted other brains to form and keep it company. God I love scientific thought but I am starting to wonder if cosmologists are like people who do research on the correlations between Etoh and teenage sex. Too much time and too little to do. Just way, way smarter!

Dink said...

Sometimes you just nod and smile while quickly backing out of the room. @$%&#$ cosmologists!

So all this symmetry talk got to me. I'm driving this morning and it occurs to me that its asymmetric to only wear a watch on my left hand. I should wear two for balance and aesthetic. But shouldn't the right hand watch's face be a mirror image? I found some goofy watch on a lefty website, but it didn't have the corresponding normal face version...

@#$%^ rabbit holes!
