The Arrow of Time


As of now, humans have detected only a small percentage of the matter in the universe, and we hypothesize that there is no ending point to the ‘arrow of time’. Considering these two widely accepted truths, I believe that all things truly are possible.

If time is endless- as it appears to be, every imaginable scenario will eventually happen.

“In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.” 
― Douglas Adams

  1. That is one scenario in the very interesting book by Brian Greene, “The Hidden Reality.” Here’s a good bit about that book: http://www.npr.org/2011/01/24/132932268/a-physicist-explains-why-parallel-universes-may-exist

  2. According to Albert Einstein’s theory, time and space are interconnected as one thing. Space changes with time and time changes with space, and the relationship is defined by the limited speed of light as a constant. So, we had the big bang and all matter is flying apart at an accelerating speed. Because of this we can predict the approximate finite time that the universe will achieve heat death, at which point it seems to me that time, whatever it is, would have no meaning and space would have no variance. Because that time is finite, there will not be enough time for all possible things to happen. So, I guess we will just have to keep on working to make the best of it.

    I have always liked Dali’s weird stuff. :smile:

  3. Awesome video and thoughts to ponder … but don’t forget that time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.

  4. To add my not that well informed 2 cents, I think time is also different because we have no sense of an ability to choose where are in that dimension. It’s more like it washes over us. I’ve not read Greene’s books but I hope to.
