Physicists Find Evidence That The Universe Is A 'Giant Brain' (VIDEO) 3

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.

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.

Old shit. All these new age sites are simply posting the same shit over and over to support their new age theories. I’m not against the idea, jut post new shit for once.

Maybe I’ve been on the net too long but what I do, if I see repetitions, is I pass them by and ignore them. I’m posting some older posts, currently, because I’m changing featured image dimensions and correcting text formating due to a theme change. Thankfully I’m using a framework now so this will be my last go at this, but the process is very manual, page to page. I’m also compressing said images to help page speed load for visitors. If I like the look of a page, I post it while I’m on it.

This type of story travels. Traffic, mostly, but also because from the vast to the macro there’s similarities in structures. Like fractuals.

That’s the thing, I’m not subscribed to many, 3 or 4. The only reason I haven’t is for the occasional new posts. But those are rare. And I have unfollwed a few because of this. Hasn’t seemed to do much good.

If you’re connected to too many New Age sites I suggest you unsubscribe from a few. Starting with this page, if you like.

Yeah, and continually re shared by every new age site back to back.

All theories. Impossible to say it’s fact.
