Funny Article

bonkers_thumb So as I was cruising through the world of the inter-web I stumbled upon a funny and interesting article over at physics.org entitled

Top 4 Bonkers Things about the Universe

Besides the bananas floating in space, what caught my attention was the quote at the bottom of the page

But they key thing – and this has got to do with quantum theory and I won’t go into it – the key thing is that there are only a finite number of possible histories. Now, if we have only a finite number of histories and an infinite number of places for those histories to be played out, then it follows that every possible history happens an infinite number of times.

This is an interesting interpretation of what I’ve often heard of referred to (correctly or incorrectly) as “many worlds” or “multiverse” interpretation of quantum mechanics.

Strictly speaking, as an aspiring experimental particle physicists, I leave such ideas and notions at an arms length until I hear how this would have any experimental ramification or testability. That isn’t to say I don’t let my imagination wonder to the possibilities presented here…but more so I don’t spend too much time pondering them in depth.

elvisHowever, as was pointed out in a related article, Elvis is alive and kicking…in a parallel universe this could have huge experimental ramifications! The King will Never Die! 😉
