    Yo BBQ,

    And how many dimensions really exist?
    If there really is 248 like some mathematicians are claiming, how the hell do I punch it into my TI-55?


    I realize I'm not BBQ, but reading up on Physics is actually a hobby of mine... I have to at least take a shot at this question...

    We live in infinity, each one of those 248 Universes have 248 of their own... add infinitum. The universe is expanding from our perspective, yes. But as the Theory of Relativity states, it's all in the perspective of the observer. Karl Pribram and David Bohm have some interesting concepts on this.

    Does your TI-55 have an infinity button?

    Thanks for input Cmac (although you might get nailed by the wrath of BBQ),


    I meant 248 dimensions, not universes.
    Some team finally solved the equations of this 248 dimension theory after multiple folks have tried for 100 some years.
    I think they call it E8 and was invented by some Norwegian in the 19th century.
    Supposedly makes the genome project child's play.

    Don't you think the infinite universe thing is kind of a cop-out, basically saying we don't really have a clue.

    For one, I don't think it's a cop-out per say, but I don't think the human mind can truly comprehend infinity and infinite universes.

    And yes, I meant Dimensions and not Universes... however, dimensions and universes go hand-in-hand. The string theory states that there are 11 other possible dimensions, which I always thought was interesting.

    I'm familiar with the E8 mathmatics... but I'll never understand it. The inventors name was Wilhelm Killing. It's some pretty remarkable stuff.

    The thing is, many modern day Physicists are saying the deeper they delve into particles and matter, the more are they are realizing things such as we don't actually exist at all... which is crazy. They say the entire universe is pretty much made of consciousness. Here is an interesting article that somewhat touches on that: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/18/magazine/18wwln-lede-t.html

    Dear BBQ,


    Some people believe that the entire universe is pretty much made of consciousness.
    If I drink to much of the Beast and loose consciousness does the universe go away?

    Dear BBQ,

    Why do ear hairs and nose hairs increase in growth as you age?
    As you grow older, you progressively start to smell worse and worse, until it reaches the point where bathing or showering cannot help (unless you take six turpentine baths per day).
    It is a little known fact* that the tip of a human ear or nose hair follicle has a more acute sense of smell than the human nose.
    (The hair follicles just selfishly choose to horde their superpowers for themselves).
    Thus, as you age, your ear and nose hairs are gradually yanked outward by the tips, which are being repelled by grody old man-stank.

    * Note to readers: whenever you see the words "it is a little known fact that..." you may safely substitute the words "I'm just making this up as I go along, but you're still probably dumb enough to believe that..."

    The universe is about 15-20 billion years old.
    This is really, really old.
    Furthermore, it can be assumed that the universe has never taken a complete and thorough shower throughout its entire existence.
    Everything stinks when it hasn't been cleaned for billions of years.
    Therefore, the universe must have SEVERE body odor.
    This body odor is called "background radiation."

    Now, the EDGES of the universe are made of quantum hair follicles, which, as mentioned earlier, have a sense of smell over 80 gajillion times more developed than that of a bloodhound.
    They are so repelled by the humongous stank emanating from the Armpit of the Universe that not even the force of gravity can "close" the universe.
    Therefore, the universe is expanding.


    Whoever came up with that total of 248 universes was WAY off.
    There are only five:

    1. Length
    2. Height
    3. Um...North
    4. Vaguely Southward
    5. Dennis

    You can still punch it into your TI-55, however.
    All you have to do is set it on a table, stand over it, clench your fist, and pound really hard screaming "THERE ARE 248 UNIVERSES! BELIEVE IT, DAMMIT!" until it shows some sign of recognizing this new information.
    Or until you've shattered it into a million pieces (at which point you can buy a new calculator that doesn't suck).
    Or until you hurt yourself.
    Whichever comes first.

    Oh, you'll pay for this, my friend!
    I'll give YOU an infinity button! (Hint: It involves your navel, a bottle opener, and an ultra-high energy particle accelerator).

    No, Marrdro - the universe does not go away.
    In fact, it rather wishes that YOU would go away, to a quiet little corner of your quiet little room, where you'll be less of a distraction.

    I'll get back to you on that first one......maybe I'll answer it sometime.
    Oooh!
    Look at that shiny thing!



    ...And, um...no.
    I don't have any older siblings whatsoever, and my younger sister is only twelve years old.

    That's not a green dot. That's a green Christmas tree ornament.
