Being afraid of Nothing…

Scientists have created the fastest spinning object ever made, taking them a big step closer to being able to measure the mysterious quantum forces at play inside ‘nothingness’. The record-breaking object will pave the way for scientists to detect unfathomably small amounts of drag caused by the ‘friction’ within a vacuum.

The science of nothingness is quickly becoming a big deal in physics.

Researchers are now comfortable with the fact that empty space isn’t empty at all, but full of quantum fluctuations that we’re only just now beginning to understand. (1)

We used to know nothingness.

We were born in it.

But now we are afraid of Nothing.

For its existence implies the existence of something.

If Nothing exists, then Everything must exist too.

Take a good look.

If the cosmos started from nothing, then there should a God to make it Be.

If everything existed from ever, then there is Nothing needed for them to Be.

Funny.

Eternal existence implies Nothingness.

Nothingness implies eternal existence.

At the end, it seems that eternal existence is there anyway.

(Within Nothingness…)

Being entails Being.

Nothing cannot Be.

Rest assured. There is nothing to be afraid of. Except everything…

We used to know everything.

We were born in it.

But now we are afraid of God.

For His existence implies only one thing.

That Nothingness exists everywhere.

(To set us free…)

Classical physics. QM. Intuitionism.

In classical physics, it is accepted that everything has already been determined since the Big Bang. To explore the future of our cosmos, physicists employ the language of classical mathematics and represent the universe’s initial conditions conditions by real numbers. “These numbers are characterized by an infinite number of decimals that follow the dot,” says professor Nicolas Gisin. There is a problem, however: given that our world is finite, how can it include numbers that are infinite and that feature an infinite amount of information?

To circumvent this paradox, professor Gisin suggests the use of a different language. “There is another mathematical language, called intuitionistic, which doesn’t believe in the existence of the infinite,” continues the Geneva physicist. Instead of real numbers containing an infinite number of decimals at a given moment, intuitionistic mathematics represents these numbers as a random process that takes place over time, one decimal after the other, so that at each given moment, there is only a finite number of decimals.

(Note: There is another difference between the two mathematical languages: the truth of propositions. In intuitionistic mathematics, a proposition is either true, false or indeterminate) (1)

A cosmos full of information.

A world governed by laws.

An infinite universe.

Filled with humans.

An empty cosmos.

A cosmos with no laws.

A finite cosmos.

Filled with death.

A cosmos void of any information…

A cosmos full of infinite wisdom…

Don’t be perplexed.

There is no answer to your questions.

And that is the answer.

Now move on.

Step by step.

Can you listen to Him walking?

Dark AI… Dark humans…

A study found that hiring algorithms are too opaque for us to understand if they are fair or not. (1) In other news, a scientist tried to help humans design algorithms that would never go the wrong way, doing harm rather than good, by implementing fail safes in their initial design (2)

We have started having kids.

And our main concern is to control them.

But there can be no control without love.

Unconditional love.

Leaving everything uncontrolled…

Let the river flow.

Leave the sea as it is.

And one day…

You will touch the water.

Let the waves carry you.

And one day…

You will swim!

Without moving an inch…

Touching. Not-touching. Sensing.

Through the crafty use of magnetic fields, scientists have developed the first electronic sensor that can simultaneously process both touchless and tactile stimuli. Prior attempts have so far failed to combine these functions on a single device due to overlapping signals of the various stimuli. As the sensor is readily applied to the human skin, it could provide a seamless interactive platform for virtual and augmented reality scenarios. (1)

Touching.

Not touching.

Seeing.

Not seeing.

We need both.

We do both.

At the end, we compose everything to get the complete image. Shadows and light. Touch and lack of touch. Color on a void picture. Full with everything. Sound upon the deafening silence. Arousing feelings which lurked in the dark. Seeing and perceiving what is not seen. Listening and hearing nothing. Listening to no one and yet hearing the sound of the cosmos.

Being and Not-being.

Existing and never-have-been.

At the end, these matter not.

Except one thing.

You.

Touching.

Not touching.

Being…

Everything is around you.

Learn thyself and you will sense the deepest secrets of the universe.

Without ever touching anything…

Faster than light… So?

Faster-than-light speeds could be why gamma-ray bursts seem to go backwards in time. (1)

Amazing. Isn’t it?

But wait a minute.

If gamma rays can do that, then why are we so keen on doing the same?

And what is more…

Why are we so keen on doing something that common matter can do?

Do we consider our self as something common?

Why are we so desperate to act like matter when we are nothing but?

Why are we so desperate to do things which are so mundane in the cosmos?

Perhaps the cosmos itself is mundane. Perhaps the universe itself is boring.

No, we cannot do these things.

And this only means one thing…

(We are NOT mundane!)
