Physicists Find Evidence That The Universe Is A 'Giant Brain'
 

 

The idea of the universe as a 'giant brain' has been proposed by scientists - and science fiction writers - for decades.

But now physicists say there may be some evidence that it's actually true. In a sense.

According to a study published in Nature's Scientific Reports, the universe may be growing in the same way as a giant brain - with the electrical firing between brain cells 'mirrored' by the shape of expanding galaxies.

The results of a computer simulation suggest that "natural growth dynamics" - the way that systems evolve - are the same for different kinds of networks - whether its the internet, the human brain or the universe as a whole.

A co-author of the study, Dmitri Krioukov from the University of California San Diego, said that while such systems appear very different, they have evolved in very similar ways.

The result, they argue, is that the universe really does grow like a brain.

The study raises profound questions about how the universe works, Krioukov said.

"For a physicist it's an immediate signal that there is some missing understanding of how nature works," he told Space.com.

The team's simulation modelled the very early life of the universe, shortly after the big bang, by looking at how quantum units of space-time smaller than subatomic particles 'networked' with each other as the universe grew.

They found that the simulation mirrored that of other networks. Some links between similar nodes resulted in limited growth, while others acted as junctions for many different connections.

For instance, some connections are limited and similar - like a person who likes sports visiting many other sports websites - and some are major and connect to many other parts of the network, like Google and Yahoo.

No, it doesn't quite mean that the universe is 'thinking' - but as has been previously pointed out online, it might just mean there's more similarity between the very small and the very large than first appearances suggest.

its pretty obvious but at this time impossible to prove

it has basically been proven that planet earth has it's own conscience though

The global consciousness project sponsored by Princeton University and some of the largest Quantum Physics Scientists in the world


and if you consider the fact that our bodies, and brains, are made up of trillions of microorganisms, it just shifts more towards that theory.

"So instead of a nucleus, u are now a quark looking at the atoms space around u (empty except for a few other quarks).
How does it compare now?"

Its so much to add-on to this, but I'll digress. Good to see they're putting pub out about it....& I still doubt people would Wake-Up. The Mind is truly Power-Full...the Universe is the Mind...you are the Mind of the Universe.

Scientists are so behind...

The people that have known/said things like this for years are always "crazy"...

Hopefully they continue to catch up and confirm to motherfu*kers the things that some people have understood for quite some time...

i can dig the theory that since everthing in the known universe can be broken down to the same smallest units of measurement that it's conceivable that everything lives and thinks to some capacity
