In consideration of the infinities involved there are an infinity of yous and mes This is an issue of there being a 3D physical universe that is infinite in all directions

Imagine that you are inside a block of space An instrument measures literally every single yoctometer of that space and records its values That would be
an extremely large amount of information but finite

Then realize that the universe has an infinity of those blocks with varied states And it also has an infinity of blocks that has the exact same finite state
as the one describing you at any one instant in time


Whether the Universe is infinite or not is not actually known but if not then it cannot contain an infinity of blocks no matter how small they were
That would be an incredibly large number but still a finite one. I am also very sceptical of the notion of an infinite number of mes in the universe
With no evidence for this it is more ontolological than empirical

Mistakes can be made either way. If the logic is flawless, it's conclusion will always be exactly true to reality. If the empirical evidence is not misinterpreted or presumptuous and it's inherent logic is also flawless, then it's conclusion will also be true to reality. False conclusions in the past have always been merely mistakes in the processes.

As far as I can tell, logic demands an infinite physical universe. There can be no empirical evidence concerning an infinite universe either for or against. All inferences concerning a Big Bang and expanding universe have been shown to be weak and presumptuous, most likely religiously inspired.

There's such a thing as "logical evidence". Can you be more stupid than that? A "logical evidence" that proves that "the universe" is "infinite". One meaningless word after another.
It is not important to understand your words. It's sufficient that you pretend that you understand them.

Actually, according to you, nothing is known and nothing can ever be known about the universe for the simple reason that the universe transcends the limit of our knowledge -- our personal experience.
That is if you're a scientist. If you're a philosopher, however, you somehow gain the access to the unknown.

It's too difficult to accept the simple fact that any sequence of words that has no reference to something we have previously experienced is quite simply meaningless.
There can be no reference to the unknown, to the infinite, to the universe, to the beyond . . .

If you want to say that somethiing has no end, you must already know what it means for that something to have an end.
What does it mean for the universe to have an end?
How does that manifest?

Science is not capable of answering philosophic questions like "what is reality?" or "what is nature?" or "what is physics?" and many other philosophic questions that have not to do with empirical evidence.

Arminius wrote:
That would be philosophy as determining reality is an ontological matter not a scientific one

Example: It is not possible that a physical experiment explains what physics "is". This was what Heidegger meant when he said: "Die Wissenschaft denkt nicht" ("the science does not think").

Arminius wrote:Science does not think (cp. Heidegger). Those questions must be answered or at least discussed by philosophers or theologians.
**

So philosophy (especially its ontology) has to say what physics "is" and what reality "is".

Then you will immediately get the old blame: "You are a subjectivist". Philosophers should not be either subjectivists or objectivists, but should try to overcome the subject/object problem.

Realize that computers know only logic, no empirical anything. Every time a computer is used by science, logic is being used. Every time mathematics is used, logic is used. For example:

One proposes that if random noise is added to an equal amount of random noise, the result will be merely the same degree of noise as the original. In order to test the hypothesis, a computer is used to create two arrays of random numbers. The arrays are then thoroughly examined for statistic variations and pattern. Then the arrays are added. The result is also examined. The computer repeats the process 10,000 times. If the results show that the degree of randomness did not vary between the original arrays and the resultant arrays, it can be concluded that the hypothesis was right.

That is an entirely, 100% logic process. Yet is yields evidence concerning physical reality.

Every time anyone measures anything and compares it with anything, it is only logic that reveals the "evidence". Data without logic is entirely meaningless. And at times, pure logic, with no physical demonstration, is sufficient evidence.

The truth is that without logic, there is no "evidence" of any kind at all.

Logic is merely the consistency of thought and language.

Utterly absurd, as wrong as that is.

A computer works with physical electrons. Bits hitting slots aren't any less empirical than a rock to the head.

As a computer engineer you would also be aware that bits tend to fall, as is the engineering term, from time to time. Thats how many bugs occur. All that happens inside of computers, because they are entirely physical, and engineered in empirical processes. A computer is just a stacker of empirically verified events.

Logic is the consistency in thought and language. It has nothing to do with empiricism. But empiricism, or any effort to be rational, cannot occur without such consistencies.

Consistencies in physical behaviors is what causes the universe to be what it is, causes the universe to exist. Thus it isn't wrong to claim that consistency created the physical universe. And that consistency is the "Logic of the physical", the "one underlying principle" (aka "God").

I would ask you what makes you think that "it" did, but the last time I asked that, we found that there was no actual evidence for your belief at all. You seem to believe and defend ideas without having any idea from whence the idea arose or why you were inspired to accept it, yet you emotionally defend it anyway.

I wonder what evidence you would actually consider and accept as 'actual', if you won't accept what is able to be presented. You haven't been able to disprove it and only seem to be trying along faulty methods instead of actually bringing to the table evidence to back up your anti-thesis. I still, at the least, brought forth more evidence to support than you do to prove otherwise.

So, Aliens.

Who believes in them?
Are Jews half alien? A friend of mine has expressed this belief.
He says they are remnants from a Martian culture. Completely left brained. Etc.

Im not sure if he really thinks this now, but he was playing with the idea.
We all know the disclosure project and the 4 types of aliens and their various proportions and sizes.
They could be glitches in our mind. But then, reality is a glitch in our mind, in as far as we think of it as one way or the other.

    Filled with doctors readin' the death roster

    Guts spillin' out like pasta, sky, misty, often tipsy
    From off the whiskey, the gypsy, told me, my chances, were risky
    Cops, pull up and frisk me but never could they get me, too shifty
    I will go, into my dungeon, and summon up the second comin'

    People started runnin', aliens with hair like Rastafarians
    Captured, placed inside of aquariums, studied by scientists
    This is it, 'The Apocalypse', I see the mother ship above the cliff
    Over Egypt, it made me sea sick, I see the eclipse
    And the abyss, the night shifts

    It's repentance day
    Repent for your sins
    When the gates of Heaven open up
    And Hell's closin' in

    It's repentance day
    Repent for your sins
    When the gates of Heaven open up
    And Hell's closin' in

    The archangel imprison my soul into a prism
    Usin' cell division and molecular collision within me
    He listen and analyze the heartbeat and rhythms
    Of children livin' brutalized

    My ears became used to the vibes of ruined lives
    Sounds in the chamber I was hidden in
    Was so spine-tinglin' I was tremblin'
    Envisionin' the fear, here within a new millennium

    Where rain became toxic, the air's stale and noxious
    Comets hit co-ops with force that made blocks split
    Flocks tried to escape a fate that made even hard rocks slide
    As nuclear dropped out of the sky, causin' burns too severe

    For hydro peroxide and sodium oxide, deep down outta basements
    Fish turned lopsided and upside down from atomic face lifts
    Through the blackness I saw John the Baptist, on the atlas
    Holdin' the masters to my Psalm under his arm

    But long before I even wrote 'em
    23 elders each wrote me a Psalm
    And placed them within my motor neurons
    It contained the approximate date of, 'The Apocalypse'

    Deposited in scripts of the 20th century prophets
    The clock ticks, tick, tick, tick upon the land borders
    I count down the manslaughter
    Military camcorders under ocean waters

    Red October causin' fish to grow arms, legs, tits
    And double heads, mutating the eggs as the radiation spreads
    Over the water beds, I watch Mother Nature as she bled
    Grym, was placed in skin casing to begin lacing hymns

    Through the basement, won't be no escapin'
    From the South to the North
    Where you run ten paces and your face is fallin' off

    It's repentance day
    It's repentance day
    Repent for your sins
    When the gates of Heaven open up
    And Hell's closin' in

    It's repentance day
    Repent for your sins
    When the gates of Heaven open up
    And Hell's closin' in

    Raised in Hell, waitin' for angels like Rafael
    Comin' from space to trace, they race
    Thrown in jail cells I had a purpose since
    The sperm cell, to bail out and get braille

    For the blinded children in Israel
    Kids kill forget the bill
    For, dollar bills and drug deals by the mayor
    Controls the people livin' legal

    Sit back and chill, until time will reveal
    Two thousand and one holy men with force fields
    Levitatin' space ships, earthquake hits, United States splits
    Projects turn to snake pits

    Secrets of the Masons came to revelations
    Babylon destroyed by the nations aggravations
    Riots in the train stations, criminals grabbin' cops
    Snakes rattlin', angels draggin'

    Seven head dragons out the Roman empire
    Surrounded with fire, liars in the Pentagon
    Drop their nuclear bombs, ran, panic
    But still, was trapped on the planet

    Died before the mother ship landed
    Only the chosen ones understand it, some can't
    'Cause of TV brain damage, no time to be romantic
    This day your independence and repentance, pentance, pentance

    "Now I see the light, my whole life is moving in one direction
    I see that now, there never has been any choice for me"

    Repentance day
    Repent for your sins
    When the gates of Heaven open up
    And Hell's closin' in

    Repentance day
    Repent for your sins
    When the gates of Heaven open up
    And Hell's closin' in

    Did you repent today?
    Repent for your sins
    When the gates of Heaven open up
    And Hell's closin' in"

In consideration of the infinities involved there are an infinity of yous and mes This is an issue of there being a 3D physical universe that is infinite in all directions

Imagine that you are inside a block of space An instrument measures literally every single yoctometer of that space and records its values That would be
an extremely large amount of information but finite

Then realize that the universe has an infinity of those blocks with varied states And it also has an infinity of blocks that has the exact same finite state
as the one describing you at any one instant in time


Whether the Universe is infinite or not is not actually known but if not then it cannot contain an infinity of blocks no matter how small they were
That would be an incredibly large number but still a finite one. I am also very sceptical of the notion of an infinite number of mes in the universe
With no evidence for this it is more ontolological than empirical

There is no saying there isn't a parallel universe created to every single "tick" of very atom.
It could all be possible and thus is possible and thus not unlikely historically relevant -
likely there is no constant proliferation of universes but likely it is contained by the same principles whereby species-diversity is contained.

Our universe is perhaps just one of attempt at a coherent one in an infinitely sided cube the corners of which are all such attempts, not knowing the the cube is the only potentially coherent thing, and trying in all its might to resist this coherence like a rubics cube with chewing gum in it.

The primordial cube of 11 dimensions.

I posit this hypothesis.

Prove me wrong.

No lol.
Proceed
