Discussions about Metaphysics, Quantum Physics, the Holographic Universe and the Nature of Reality.

One reason I prefer the evolutionary universe is, it is evolving, rather than decaying. According to it, the LHC is not reproducing primal conditions, but producing conditions that have never existed before, and whose nature would be inherently less predictable, although they didn't ask for his prediction.

Well, if the universe is decaying, it's doing a pretty poor job of it as its expansion is accelerating. Personally, I think that the big bang theory needs to just go away. Too many problems with it.

Any good model of physics is going to have to start taking consciousness into account. I don't think any model has been developed that really speaks to how it interacts with present physics, but clearly it does and it matters a lot. The gravitational field has been shown to be affected by large disturbances in human emotion, indicating that we have a relationship to the natural world that we don't understand that is produced by consciousness.
Apparently, there is a magnetic frequency range that humans respond to, much like sound. Only we respond in an entangled way, meaning that distance, signal strength and intervening objects are irrelevant. There is some interesting research in this area. As usual, I have a blog post on this:https://weilerpsiblog.wordpress.com/201 ... ic-fields/
When physicists talk about the need to include consciousness in physics, you know something is up. These are extremely conservative people for the most part and not given to wild flights of fancy. It is not just the observer effect and entanglement here, it is also the functioning of ordinary quantum experiments. Occasionally one researcher will get one set of results and another researcher will get a different set although they are doing the same experiment. They are able to repeat their own results even though they are different.

That's interesting. In large part because psi seems to be related to magnetic fields.

Will they ever find the God Particle? Who knows?

I didn't mean to imply that it was accepted. I just didn't think that it was dead. Some pretty smart guys are still pursuing it. I posted some links where some scientists have come up with some tests that could potentially confirm it. if there are tests for it it will no longer be pseudoscience.
It may not be correct. My only point is that it doesn't seem to be dead, which is what Craig suggested.

Dead is a subjective term in this case. It's meant to imply that it has no life to it. I agree that people are still working on, but it's a dead end. Perhaps if they learn something from the work that was done on it they can apply it to something else.

I'm not qualified to say whether it is a dead end or not. People seem to be still taking it quite seriously and testing it. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

I highly recommend the book "The Trouble with Physics" by Lee Smolin.
He used to work on String Theory and is very familiar with it. If you know the underlying problems of this theory, which are not hard to understand, you won't have to wait and see.

Honestly, I don't have a horse in that race. When a big discovery happens that confirms string theory or M theory or whatever comes next, I'll listen with interest. But I'm happy to let the physicists duke it out.
