There may very well be a kind of quantum vitality wave, cannot bear in mind what it is referred to as as a result of it has been so lengthy since I examine it. Zero level collapse, perhaps? Vacuum bubble burst? However no matter it’s, it is an vitality wave that begins sooner or later, and spreads outward on the velocity of sunshine, annihilating any matter, vitality, and even spacetime in its path.

As a result of the wave travels on the velocity of sunshine, it’s invisible. We’d don’t have any method of seeing it coming, as a result of any mild emitted by it could hit us at the very same time that the wave itself hits us.

So, abruptly, the solar may simply vanish from existence. We would not discover as a result of the solar’s mild from eight minutes in the past would nonetheless be reaching us. Eight minutes later, the earth simply vanishes from existence. No warning. No hint.

I had a professor in school who taught physics and he defined why we are going to doubtless by no means come throughout aliens. The universe is about 14 billion years outdated. Over the course of that point, it’s doubtless that clever life, in addition to life on earth, has existed. Nonetheless, 14 billion years is an INSANELY very long time. Different life varieties have most likely risen and fallen hundreds of instances over. Excessive dynasties with know-how we are able to solely dream of getting have most likely existed. Life varieties may have lasted a whole lot of hundreds of years and nonetheless not even be near our timeline. The possibilities of different clever life varieties current concurrently people, within the 14 billion years the universe has hosted a risk for all times, is admittedly unlikely. Statistically, clever life to have fashioned, prospered, and even existed concurrently people is extraordinarily small merely because of the absolute drop in a bucket that we’re on phrases of time. We might very nicely be fully alone within the universe.

Jimmyg100 Report

The idea that there’s an infinite variety of parallel universes branching out at every second with all attainable outcomes for every state of affairs.

As an example that is true and also you play Russian roulette. 5 out of six of attainable “you” would reside and one would die however irrespective of what number of instances you play there would all the time be variations of you that might survive. This may give these variations of “you” the phantasm of immorality. This may imply that irrespective of the dangers you’ll take, there would all the time be some model of you that might survive.

If that is true, it could imply that you could possibly reside your life fully freed from the concern of dying and tackle any threat. However the one method to know if that is true is to show your self to excessive odds of deaths, repeatedly.

Additionally this could imply that as time handed there would all the time be a extra decrepit and invalid model of you surviving, perhaps ceaselessly…

In any case that or lizard individuals.

The darkish forest principle. This explains the Fremi paradox, why we haven’t seen every other superior life varieties regardless of the vastness of the universe. Different superior life varieties don’t ship out indicators into the remainder of the universe as a result of they’re frightened that one thing extra superior and harmful goes to search out them first. There’s one other concept that different civilizations know there’s one thing on the market however don’t ship any indicators as a result of it has no motive to not wipeout your entire planet.

There’s a science fiction guide based mostly on this and I believe this quote explains it higher than I can:

“The universe is a darkish forest. Each civilization is an armed hunter stalking via the timber like a ghost, gently pushing apart branches that block the trail and attempting to tread with out sound. Even respiration is finished with care. The hunter needs to be cautious, as a result of all over the place within the forest are stealthy hunters like him. If he finds one other life—one other hunter, angel, or a demon, a fragile toddler to tottering outdated man, a fairy or demigod—there’s just one factor he can do: open hearth and get rid of them”

It’s extra of simply questioning if something outdoors of your self is even actual. It doesn’t imply you might have the intelligence or energy to consciously make every little thing up.

EastClintwood89 Report

In case you learn into Christian Gnosticism it will get bizarre. I am solely into it as a result of I have been writing and it has been attention-grabbing to make use of it as a foundation for one of many cults.

Primarily, Gnosticism is a thought (not a faith) that includes many religions and non canonical texts to loosely map out what God is. I will inform you a few issues I do know, keep in mind I do not imagine it and this is not me preaching.

First is the thought of Aeons. You may have the Father, the God that’s every little thing after which you might have Aeons. Aeons are like Aechangels, besides they’re additionally God. They’re part of Heaven which is called Fullness. Some time in the past one of many Aeons, Sophia (Knowledge), [messed] up and had a son. This was a problem as a result of that son was born into the fabric world.

That being grew to become the Demiurge, and is what you consider as God. He determined he was alone on the planet and declared himself God. That is had been it will get creepy.

His identify is legitimately Lovecraftian: Yaldabaoth. He’s represented as a snake with thr head of a lion. He’s every little thing good and evil. That is why they suppose God is the way in which he’s: he’ll flood the world and rattling you to hell for saying the improper factor, however may even create miracles and provides individuals hope. He’s a blind fool, chaos and justice bundled collectively. That additionally makes him the satan.

Additionally they imagine that once you die you go to a decrease type of Heaven earlier than you might be processed into the Fullness. Which means the being that’s you stops current and also you develop into aside of God, everybody who you’re keen on and hate.

It is simply actually creepy to suppose the Abrahamic God is a egocentric and morally inconsistent character. And that you simply primarily nonetheless go to the Atheist “afterlife,” regardless of heaven beig actual.

Edit: aside, a component

However actually, no, the world simply reached a peak of humanity some time again and has been on the exponential downward slope ever since.


There is a principle that when you die, you simply dream ceaselessly. Sounds nice till you notice that features no matter nightmare your thoughts comes up with. One thing you could not get up from.

Even the great goals, none of it could be actual. Surreal, bizarre, caught “residing” in a “world” with no continuity, every little thing altering on a whim – and also you would not be awake sufficient to even acknowledge that.

Luiisbatman Report

Quantum immortality is horrifying as [hell].

The idea stats that you’ll by no means actually die. Any close to dying expertise you’ve got had in your life, is some extent the place you died in an alternate timeline, however your conciousness moved on to a different timeline in your physique, the place you survived, nevertheless shut it was.

If this principle is true, then meaning you’ll by no means ever die, it doesn’t matter what horrible issues occur to you or how decrepit and tortured your physique turns into, you’ll someday be nothing greater than a tortured pile of flesh and organs with no escape.

Edit: I would like so as to add that, it is a principle and clearly unproven, and there may be going to be variance within the principle as individuals discover what they suppose is feasible, possible, and in any other case.

That being mentioned, probably the most frequent reply I’ve had has been alongside the traces of “What occurs to you if one of many different “yous” died and moved into your timeline”

I see this occurance as creating a brand new timeline moderately than taking on one other; very like branches on a tree, they may develop outward in addition to upward.

They couldn’t precisely clarify to individuals, I used to be despatched from the longer term to kill this child to avoid wasting a whole lot of hundreds of thousands of lives. No-one would imagine him and would simply assume he was some nutcase, or perhaps they’re not allowed to inform anybody as per the settlement with the longer term authorities?

nalc Report

The idea that mainly asks “if there’s different clever life on the market, why have not we seen them?”

Because of this if there actually are aliens on the market and there have been for hundreds of years, why have none been conclusively noticed? In case you actually give it some thought, there needs to be tons of alien proof throughout the seen universe if they’ve gotten to the purpose of interstellar journey. However there is not, so meaning one thing is stopping any development earlier than it could get to that time.

Primarily, there’s a barrier that every one different life has not been capable of get handed, which lies someplace on the trail of evolution and development. That barrier is probably extinction.

People are getting extremely near travelling past our residence planet. With this principle in thoughts, the primary concern is whether or not people haven’t but reached that barrier or if we’re handed it. If now we have not reached it but, then we’re doomed to the identical destiny of different theoretical clever life. But when we’re handed it, we’re fortunate and could possibly journey the celebs. In actual fact, we may very nicely be the primary ones to make it.

However we simply do not know the place the barrier is.
