the universe will end in an "Instanton"

Postby sacko » Wed Apr 04, 2018 9:11 am

We're all gonna die. The final moment for the universe will be triggered by a bizarre consequence of subatomic physics called an instanton. This instanton will create a tiny bubble that will expand at the speed of light, swallowing everything in its path. It's only a matter of time.

https://www.livescience.com/62207-higgs ... verse.html

"At some point you will create one of these bubbles," study lead author Anders Andreassen, a physicist at Harvard University, told Live Science. "It will be very unpleasant."

By "unpleasant," he means the end to all life — and, indeed, chemistry — as we know it.

Very little is known about instantons, which are the solutions to equations governing the motion of tiny subatomic particles, but Andreassen loosely compared them to the phenomenon of quantum tunneling, whereby a particle seemingly defies physics to pass through an otherwise impenetrable barrier. But instead of crossing a barrier, the instanton forms a bubble within the Higgs field, the field that gives everything mass and gives rise to the Higgs boson.

Interestingly, this universe-ending bubble would never have been possible were it not for the particular mass of the Higgs boson in relation to another heavier particle, called a top quark, which comprises many atoms. If either the quark or the Higgs particle had been a little lighter, these universe-destroying bubbles couldnꞌt form.

Alas, that is not the case and so after some amount of time, a destructive bubble will form. The team calculated the shelf life of the universe as between 10 quinquadragintillion years (one with 139 zeros after it) and a mere 10 octodecillion years (one with 58 zeros after it).

"That is a very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very long time," Andreassen said. "Our sun will burn up and many things will happen in our solar system before this is very likely to happen."

No, the aliens are coming :shock:

“20.8.5.25 1.18.5 20.1.11.9.14.7 15.22.5.18 41818”.

just the latest internet meme, Inny.

Real Aliens wouldn't pass their time with this childish behaviour

LOL, that's not a meme. Someone typed out part of the code and I did a screenshot. :P

it's probably sent by a hacker.

Why would aliens send this message? to scare us? why? it makes no sense whatsoever

another reason, they claim, is for another rapture date somewhere in april. lmao! as if Jesus would send people creepy morse / military codes.

trust me on this one Inny. ;)

and in the end, both humans and aliens will die in an "instanton", that nothing can espace from

obviously a hacker.

why would aliens want to kill us all?

earth isn't a very nice place to be. Even humans can't live on most of its regions (the poles, the deserts, etc...) and humans have had hundres of thousands of years of evolution to adapt to earth's conditions.

Aliens coming to earth, is like humans going to venus.

Gravity is also an issue. It's been calculated that in order for a civilisation to reach the advanced state that aliens are apparently in, a lot more resources are needed than those found on earth. You'd need a "super earth" tens of times bigger than earth. These super earths exist around red dwarves. They are so big, that gravity is also bigger. Aliens coming to earth are experiencing much less gravity than they feel on their home planets. They just wouldnt survive on here; their bodies arent adapted enough.

so the only reason aliens would visit us, is for raw materials. killing us all would require a lot of resources for the aliens, and it wouldnt serve a purpose.

As for Jesus and the rapture... like I said it's got nothing to do with silly coded messages.

Hackers have a lot of time on their hands...

I'm not giving you an attitude. I'm giving myself an attitude. Or, well, just saying I had a dumb idea.

Well, I'm not trying to make you look dumb, I'm trying to ease your mind. I'm not scared, and neither should you.

and there are no such things as dumb ideas. There sure are dumb people around, but you're not one of them.

I completely disagree. With that first sentence at least. I've heard a LOT of dumb ideas. I've even come up with some myself. You don't have to be a dumb person to do that. :lol:
