Well, damn

I’m so goddamn happy this show exists to teach kids important lessons about this

Winning and changing the rules for everyone else is the true long term power of “Winning”.

quotethatshow:

The sun looks like a solid object, but it’s not. It’s so hot that all its atoms are always in their gaseous state. Why is the sun so hot? Because its own stupendous gravity is squeezing its atoms together. The energy of gravity is being transformed into the energy of moving atoms. That’s what heat is.

Gain (가인)  - Truth or Dare

The only kpop star that matters to me.  Always dressed to kill, sexually edgy (for Korea), and surrounded by male dancers.

A perfect rainy Saturday

I spent the day in and out of bed with my guy, sharing music, chatting dancing around my apartment, and eating.  I introduced him to coke floats, and blew his mind.  

I also figured out that his name with one sound change means lettuce, so now I call him Salad.  I see the appeal of this whole couple thing, because he’s constantly adorable.

I’m still getting used to being called “형” (hyeong) though.

Horgan: Lawrence Krauss, in A Universe from Nothing, claims that physics has basically solved the mystery of why there is something rather than nothing. Do you agree?

Ellis: Certainly not. He is presenting untested speculative theories of how things came into existence out of a pre-existing complex of entities, including variational principles, quantum field theory, specific symmetry groups, a bubbling vacuum, all the components of the standard model of particle physics, and so on. He does not explain in what way these entities could have pre-existed the coming into being of the universe, why they should have existed at all, or why they should have had the form they did. And he gives no experimental or observational process whereby we could test these vivid speculations of the supposed universe-generation mechanism. How indeed can you test what existed before the universe existed? You can’t.

Thus what he is presenting is not tested science. It’s a philosophical speculation, which he apparently believes is so compelling he does not have to give any specification of evidence that would confirm it is true. Well, you can’t get any evidence about what existed before space and time came into being. Above all he believes that these mathematically based speculations solve thousand year old philosophical conundrums, without seriously engaging those philosophical issues. The belief that all of reality can be fully comprehended in terms of physics and the equations of physics is a fantasy. As pointed out so well by Eddington in his Gifford lectures, they are partial and incomplete representations of physical, biological, psychological, and social reality.

And above all Krauss does not address why the laws of physics exist, why they have the form they have, or in what kind of manifestation they existed before the universe existed (which he must believe if he believes they brought the universe into existence). Who or what dreamt up symmetry principles, Lagrangians, specific symmetry groups, gauge theories, and so on? He does not begin to answer these questions.

It’s very ironic when he says philosophy is bunk and then himself engages in this kind of attempt at philosophy. It seems that science education should include some basic modules on Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Hume, and the other great philosophers, as well as writings of more recent philosophers such as Tim Maudlin and David Albert.
