2,790.  Mathematics seem to permeate Nature ... almost as if God is a master mathematician who has constructed the universe in mathematical forms.  (Science & Nature & Mathematics & Astronomy & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  Horizon: A Mathematical Problem, BBC 1984   

 

 

2,791.  This universe we live in: scientists have discovered some remarkably strange things about it.  So strange they are having to use the most disturbing principles to describe what’s going on.  (Universe & Astronomy & Cosmology & Laws & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  Horizon: The Anthropic Principle, BBC 1987

 

2,792.  The Anthropic Principle: The universe was anthropicentric – the hub of all creation was man.  (Universe & Life & Astronomy & Cosmology & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,793.  Galileo’s masterstroke was to discover that what goes on around us depends on mathematical laws.  (Universe & Astronomy & Mathematics & Cosmology & Laws & Anthropic Principle & Galileo & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  

 

86,176.  In the 1920s physicist Niels Bohr found that Newton’s Laws break down at the atomic level.  The replacement Quantum Theory ... showed that the electron orbiting the atomic nucleus doesn’t look like this at all.  It’s more smudged out, more like a ripple or a wave.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,177.  We have to record some kind of measurement to know where an electron is.  In fact, until we decide to find out where the electron is by doing an experiment to observe it the electron as a material entity cannot be really said to exist.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,178.  That by our acts of observation we bring things into existence, at least in the realm of the very small, is supported by scientific experiment.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,179.  If we bring the tiny world of the Quantum to existence by our observations, do we need any other mechanism to account for the whole of reality?  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,794.  So what are we?  A statistical accident.  Where are we?  Nowhere special.  Where are we going?  Into oblivion.  A meaningless hiccup in the blank procession of matter through time.  It’s a tatty destiny.  (Universe & Astronomy & Cosmology & Meaning of Life & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  

 

2,795.  The Anthropic Principle seems well named – forget other intelligences; the universe may well have given rise to man alone.  (Universe & Astronomy & Cosmology & Life & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  

 

2,796.  Weak Anthropic Principle: A universe remarkably in sympathy with our existence.  Strong Anthropic Principle: A universe that gave birth to man.  Participatory Anthropic Principle: a universe that man helps to create by his observations and understanding.  Final Anthropic Principle: A universe in while life will never die out and where knowledge will increase for ever.  (Universe & Astronomy & Cosmology & Life & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

 

7,525.  A super civilisation wouldn’t just make one perfect simulation of the past ... If the computer of the future is churning out billions of simulations, how do we know we’re living in the original real world and not one of the billions of copies?  In fact the odds against us being real are billions to one against.  (Computer & Time & Meaning of Life & Simulation Theory)  Horizon: Time Trip, BBC 2003

 

7,526.  Now we’re told we may not even be real.  Instead we may merely be part of a computer system.  Our free will, as Newton suggested, is probably an illusion.  And just to rub it in, we are being controlled by a super-intelligent superior being.  (Computer & Time & Meaning of Life & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

 

80,756.  Welcome to the weird world of quantum reality: where nothing is quite what is seems ... A remarkable experiment that puts the very existence of reality into question: known to physicists as the Double Slit experiment its remarkable because it reveals two astonishing paradoxes about the nature of reality no-one can fully explain.  (Quantum Physics & Experiment & Simulation Theory)  Horizon: What is Reality? BBC 2010

 

79,287.  Single photons ... What you get is something completely different: even though only single photons of light are being fired through the slits they don’t create two lines, they mysteriously create three.  (Light & Photon & Multiverse & Parallel Universe & Reality & Quantum Physics & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  

 

79,289.  According to this theory the photon of light faces two slits; it doesn’t split in two – it splits the world in two.  Every photon in the double slit experiment creates a new parallel world.  (Light & Photon & Multiverse & Parallel Universe & Reality & Quantum Physics & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

79,288.  If you put detectors by the slits, the mysterious behaviour stops.  The photons behave just like bullets.  Take the detectors away – the multiple stripes mysteriously re-appear.  So what is going on?  Rather astonishingly it seems we can change the way reality behaves just by looking at it.  But this means reality has a secret life of its own.  (Light & Photon & Multiverse & Parallel Universe & Reality & Quantum Physics & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,385.  So reality turns out to be stranger that we ever imagined.  Everything has the power to be in two places at once.  But we will never see it.  It is all very peculiar.  (Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

84,683.  The most important particle of all - the Higgs Boson ... The Higgs is now Fermilab’s Number One priority.  But they aren’t the only ones looking for it.  They have competition.  From the biggest particle accelerator of them all – the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.  It is more than three times as powerful.  (Particle & Quantum Physics & Particle Accelerator & Matter & Reality & Higgs Boson & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,164.  The quantumness of reality is apparently very sensitive.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

84,679.  What goes on beneath these fields in the Tevitron are some of the most violent collisions in the universe.  Deep underground in a four-mile vacuum pipe, encased by super-conducting magnets, they smash together two sub-atomic particles at close to the speed of life.  (Particle & Quantum Physics & Particle Accelerator & Matter & Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

84,680.  Working out which of these are elementary is a problem that has defined particle physics for over sixty years ... When experimenters first broke into them [atoms] they discovered ever smaller bits inside.  (Particle & Quantum Physics & Particle Accelerator & Matter & Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

84,681.  The particle zoo – a whole new level of reality had been discovered.  (Particle & Quantum Physics & Particle Accelerator & Matter & Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

    

84,682.  With the discovery of the Top Quark, physicists are close to understanding one of the greatest mysteries of reality: what it’s all made of.  (Particle & Quantum Physics & Particle Accelerator & Matter & Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,814.  The Holographic Principle: which says that all three dimensional objects can be encoded in only two dimensions.  (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory & Dimension & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,815.  But Lenny [Susskind] didn’t stop there.  He and other physicists made a truly shocking leap of the imagination: they asked what if the whole of reality is a hologram, projected from our own Event Horizon, the far edges of the universe.  (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,816.  It seems utterly bizarre that the ultimate nature of reality might be holographic.  That at the edge of our universe there might be a shimmering sheet of information that describes the entire universe within ... We are about to put this theory to the test.  (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,817.  If Max [Tegmark] is right, maths isn’t a language we’ve invented,  but a deep structure we are gradually uncovering like archaeologists.  An abstract unchanging entity that has no beginning and no end.  As we peel back the layers we are discovering the code.  Strange as it seems it’s a comforting theory because if the reality is a mathematical object, understanding it might be within our reach.  (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,818.  These two grand visions of Reality – the mathematical structure and the cosmic hologram represent theoretical thinking at its most imaginative and beautiful.  (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,165.  It may be that we are standing on the verge of a new version of Reality.  Physicists have redefined Reality by close measurement and observation of the material world.  They have drilled down to the bottom layer.  Discovered that we can change Reality just by looking at it.  And begun to sense that information encoded at the edge of our universe could be more important than matter.  But in the end Reality is best defined as an intelligent conversation with the Universe.  (Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.
