Fine-tuned universeAugust 28, 2007 at 3:53 pm | Posted in Science, Space, Strange | Leave a comment
Having a really interesting discussion with a friend of mine about sciences supposition that energy somehow produces order, based on things like fractals that reveal order within disorder.
“In fact, if the time frame is long enough, anything that is even possible becomes inevitable. ”
This lead to the idea of the “Fine-tuned universe”…
“The term fine-tuned universe refers to the idea that conditions that allow life in the universe can only occur with the tightly restricted values of the universal physical constants, and that small changes in these constants would correspond to a very different universe, not likely conducive to the establishment and development of matter, astronomical structures, or life as it is presently known.”
Unfortunately, as the article observes, the arguments are extended to suppose the universe is adapted to man rather than man to the universe and so on. 2 sides of the ego coin.
