The new Cosmology.
A week ago an article appeared that is getting slowly more and more attention in the press. It’s about the Ali-Das model of the universe. Yes, it has nothing to do with ants but al with ants and us…. because it explains how the universe (and we and ants) works. We are all made from “quanta”!
One of my interests in science, besides ants, is Einstein and his theories, special and general relativity and, as one of its founders, quantum mechanics. After these theories got accepted Einstein tried to find a unifying theory for everything (or at least a lot, like a better theory for the universe than his creation!). After Einstein many tried to find a good cosmology (super-strings, 11-or more-dimension space,….) and eventually a good great unifying theory for all in physics. Now we are taking a great step forwards with this new model of the universe. And it is a theory Einstein would like: a general relativistic, quantum mechanical cosmology, simple and wiping away a lot of problems met with in the other theories. Some consequences: NO big bang, NO dark matter, NO multiple universes ,…, No expanding universe BUT a finite universe (with a cosmological constant, already known a few years to be needed in the description of our universe!) and the universe is filled with a kind of quantum-liquid that pushes every visible object away from the others!
My fixation for the next few days! Sorry ants!!!
