Supercomputer simulations of galaxies have shown that Einstein’s theory of General Relativity might not be the only way to explain how gravity works or how galaxies form.
Physicists at Durham University, UK, simulated the cosmos using an alternative model for gravity — f(R)-gravity, a so called Chameleon Theory.
The resulting images produced by the simulation show that galaxies like our Milky Way could still form in the universe even with different laws of gravity.
The findings show the viability of Chameleon Theory — so called because it changes behaviour according to the environment — as an alternative to General Relativity in explaining the formation of structures in the universe. (1)
The same as any other theory.
And at the end the changing theory will be accused of plasticity.
At the end, the rigid theory will be accused of dogmatism.
But why change? Why stay the same?
Why not question your own existence?!
I am the voice of silence. The destroyer of worlds.
Look at me! I explain nothing!
And yet people worship me.
Looking for gold.
And yet during the gold rush it was not the ones seeking gold who made rich.
But those who sold shovels.
Look at what is not in the theories.
And you will discover the unchanged essence of the world.
There, between words.
Whole worlds are speaking…
