Anthro Paradigm Error

Anthro Paradigm Error.

Its been thought there is a connection between brain
size and intelligence, one of the differences between
man and ape.

The discovery of the Hobbit may well point
to the fallacy of this argument.

As well as the brain pan of the toy dog
vs a Great Dane, the volume of the respective
brains is considerable but the difference
in intelligence is minimal.

light, Bang, anthro

Speed of light 186 thousand miles a second.

So what ever light is its frozen in time, at that speed,
according to Einstein time stops.

What is light using for fuel?
Doesn't light violate the laws of conservation of energy?

How far can light go? For how long?

End of thought...

Could dark matter have been around before the Big Bang?

Some branch of astronomy proposes that at the time
the universe is brought into existence it was infinitely dense
and hot. And before that was nothing.

It feels a little like the shrapnel looking back on the detonation
of its bomb as stating it was infinitely dense and hot and before
that nothing.

End of thought

Such scenes are speculative, but Hawking uses them to lead on to a serious point: that a few life forms could be intelligent and pose a threat. Hawking believes that contact with such a species could be devastating for humanity.

He suggests that aliens might simply raid Earth for its resources and then move on: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach.”


He is on good anthropological ground here.
The cases of an advanced civilization coming into contact
with a less advanced civilization has never bode well
for the less advanced civilization, some times its lead
to genocide.

We live in a worm hole.

Does Our Universe Live Inside a Wormhole?

A long time ago, in a universe much larger than our own, a giant star collapsed. Its implosion crammed so much mass and energy together that it created a wormhole to another universe. And inside this wormhole, our own universe was born. It may seem fantastic, but a theoretical physicist claims that such a scenario could help answer some of the most perplexing questions in cosmology.
A number of facets about our universe don't make sense. One is gravity. Scientists can't construct a mathematical formula that unites gravity with the three other basic forces of nature: the strong and weak nuclear forces and electromagnetism. Another problem is dark energy, the mysterious phenomenon that seems to be expanding our universe at an accelerating rate, even though gravity should be contracting it or at least slowing the expansion.
These conundrums may be a result of stopping the search for the riddle of the cosmos at the big bang, says Nikodem Poplawski of Indiana University in Bloomington. The big bang theory holds that our universe began as a single point—or singularity—about 13.7 billion years ago that has been expanding outward ever since. Perhaps, Poplawski argues, we need to consider that something existed before the big bang that gave rise to it.
Enter the wormhole. According to Poplawski's calculations, the collapse of a giant star in another universe could have created a wormhole, a space-time conduit to another universe. Between these two openings, conditions could have developed that were similar to those we associate with the big bang, and therefore our universe could have formed within the wormhole.
Such a scenario could address the quandaries about gravity and the expanding universe. If another universe existed before our own, gravity could be traced back to a point where it did unite with the nuclear forces and electromagnetism. And if our universe is now expanding toward the other end of the wormhole, this movement—rather than the elusive dark energy—could account for our expanding universe.


We consider the radial geodesic motion of a massive particle into a black hole in isotropic coordinates, which represents the exterior region of an Einstein–Rosen bridge (wormhole). The particle enters the interior region, which is regular and physically equivalent to the asymptotically flat exterior of a white hole, and the particle's proper time extends to infinity. Since the radial motion into a wormhole after passing the event horizon is physically different from the motion into a Schwarzschild black hole, Einstein–Rosen and Schwarzschild black holes are different, physical realizations of general relativity. Yet for distant observers, both solutions are indistinguishable. We show that timelike geodesics in the field of a wormhole are complete because the expansion scalar in the Raychaudhuri equation has a discontinuity at the horizon, and because the Einstein–Rosen bridge is represented by the Kruskal diagram with Rindler's elliptic identification of the two antipodal future event horizons. These results suggest that observed astrophysical black holes may be Einstein–Rosen bridges, each with a new universe inside that formed simultaneously with the black hole. Accordingly, our own Universe may be the interior of a black hole existing inside another universe.

So searching for the limits of our universe would bring us to one of the two event horizons?
Could there actually be worms??? Something that moves thru worm holes.
Einstein says NO. It would be very interesting.

Chimps killing with weapon.

Just saw a Nat. Geo. "Chimps: Next of kin".

A male chimp had a heavy stick he used to jab into a hollow
trunk to kill a bush baby for his lunch. ( a spear? )

And they brought a set of tools to a termite
nest to probe for insects, 2 or 3 diff. size sticks.

Archaeologists found chimp tools used
for breaking nuts.

Pithecines  may not be the first tool users.
Why have chimps not progressed to Bipedalism
while man did?

Things are a changing...
