The Multiverse: Science, Religion, or Pseudoscience?…

Date: November 19, 2022

“Why do physicists think that our universe isn’t the only one? And should you believe them? In this video, I explain what the multiverse is and what the problem is with it. I have talked about this before but in hindsight I think I made it too confusing. This is my new and hopefully improved attempt to summarize the important points.

Correction: At 5 minutes 20 seconds, the text on screen says “Enternal Inflation” — that should have been “Eternal Inflation”! Sorry about that!

“Today we’ll talk about experimental evidence for quantum effects in the brain, the discovery of a potentially dangerous asteroid, a new method to track turbulence in plasma, China’s scientific Rise and the British Space Program, viruses on microplastics, how lasers can trick an autonomous vehicle into running someone over, the link between intelligence and self-control – in jay, and a 15th century house excavated in Berlin. And of course the telephone will ring.”

“One day around 15,000 years ago, a wall of ice 2,000 feet tall and 30 miles wide suddenly broke wide open, and it unleashed the largest flood that we know of in the history of Earth. Come and hit the road with me as we search for the geologic fingerprints of the Missoula Ice Age Floods, and learn the story of one of the worst natural disasters that’s ever happened!”

“If jet turbines are the evolution of a propeller, what is the evolution of ionic thrust? In my attempt to answer that – I built a next-gen ionic thruster, and only shocked myself about a dozen times in the process. Thank you to Steven Barret at MIT for providing his airplane footage, and to Keysight for supporting this video.”

“(October 27, 2009) Julie Theriot, Associate Professor of Biochemistry and of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford, discusses the different types of microorganisms present in the human body and their functions, the distinction between disease-causing and benign or helpful microorganisms, and the interactions between human cells and both harmful and helpful microorganisms.

Stanford Mini Med School is a series arranged and directed by Stanford’s School of Medicine, and presented by the Stanford Continuing Studies program.”

Over twelve years old…so, take that into account…There may have been some advances in understanding since.
