These cosmological discoveries hardly ever excite me. They seem to go on all the time, with things that "could" mean this or that. Then another discovery is announced which conflicts with the earlier one. Dark matter, dark energy, cosmological time changes, black holes, maybe even white holes one day, and so on.I know some physicists and astronomers get excited and worked up over it, but it all seems so far off in distance and time and from our everyday concerns that... what the hell?I am still trying to understand the background microwave radiation from the big bang.By the way, was anyone (!) around to hear the 'big bang'?Sorry to be so negative.

But you see, CDA, how the cosmological topics mimic the ufological topics -- in their practical meaningless and obsession by devotees, who shirk life to pursue such incidents as that in the article above.The issues of cosmology, like ufology, impact no one really, and certainly not the vicissitudes of life.(Ask the Syrians.)RR

Whether it is the dreams of physicists or the dreams we inhabit every night, I see no discernible difference with the exception of their context. The being said, this is perhaps a cloaked blessing inasmuch as anything we plucked would be weaponized as the facts in the case demonstrate. The atomic bomb is a good example of how ( in reality)how our animal society frames these questions in terms of efficiency rather than re-framing the utilization of discovery. Soon enough these chickens will come home to roost without a grand theory of the universe being required. It's simply common sense.

If the physicists figured out the workings of the universe, they would utilize this knowledge without the valuation of the consequences from what we unusually do, shoot first and then ponder where the damage will come from. From history, the bigger the discovery, the bigger the consequences.I , for one, am thankful and not critical of the fact that they see the universe as bewildering as we do. Finding the key to the universe would be like finding a grandly awe inspiring machine with no operating instructions for responsible use. No warning label.
You and I, Bruce, are really too old to fret about such things, are we not?RR
For my kids and grandkids things are not looking promising, so I do fret. For me, I could care less.
Bruce...Ah, the kids and grandkids, may we all be so concerned for their futures, as they are concerned for ours.(See my comment to Don about a loss of UFO books in another post here.)RR
