Krauss is always worth a video or two:

I fixed myself a big bowl of popcorn and I'm almost through watching the first video.
He is amazing and I'm learning so much about the universe. I'll finish both of them in a couple days.
I did catch the hints of Monism so far but in a way that makes sense.... ;)

Thank you so much Rom... :thanks:

This is from Krauss's INR5 presentation last year.

An general "teaching" lecture from Krauss.

Not sure how old but was uploaded fairly recently.

None of the video links show up on my browser so I've had to scrabble around on Google.

We can all wander around in this quagmire of speculation but why don't we simply ask WHY we feel we need to have a 'theory of everything' or a complete understanding of 'the origin of the universe'?

I will touch bases with Bill regarding the links not showing up ... I suspect it has something to with Google not supporting Flash anymore and moving over to HTML5, whatever that is.

Having said that it does seem to work in my Internet Explorer (latest version). We need to update the forum platform.


Regarding Why? Do you mean what causes us to do stuff or what is the supposed purpose we confabulate?

I'm intrigued as to why we devote so much time, not only attempting to answer questions we may never solve, but why is the origin of the universe ( out of nothing or an eternal changing something?) such a pressing concern many appear to think requires urgent investigation. I can understand the notion that moving towards answering such questions might somehow along the way provide information of some practical value, a theoretical foundation for new sources of non-polluting energy for instance. What puzzles me is the almost tribal passion ensuing when differing sides supporting different imagined 'solutions' to these questions interact. Given the perilous situation our species finds itself in this to me is like dancing on the deck of the Titanic as it goes down.
