DailyDirt: Put Your Thinking Caps On…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Working on puzzles can be fun — but there’s also a point where the puzzles can get “too hard” (eg. Millennium Prize, Hilbert’s problems, etc). For those who are undaunted by a good challenge, here are a few links for your amusement.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

I thought the big bang theory had been dismissed years ago? Well, whatever.
Anyway, the real answer to the origin of reality is simple. Everything within linear time, including linear time itself, has a start point and an end point. Furthermore, it’s impossible for linear time to predate itself. As such, linear time cannot have originated from linear time.
Therefore, the origin of linearity must be nonlinear. Or, as the apostle Paul put it, “things which are seen were not made of things which do appear”.

Re: Re:

A curve looks linear if you look at a small enough piece. Do you think you are a significant enough piece of the universe that you can grasp the entire structure from considering your own experiences of linear time?

Time isn’t linear and the universe isn’t linear and if you think otherwise then you are just a flatlander.
