At NYC sci fest, asking 'What if we're holograms?'
By SAMANTHA GROSS, Associated Press Writer Samantha Gross, Associated Press Writer Sat May 29, 3:07 pm ET
NEW YORK Brian Greene works in a world where scientific reasoning rules all and imagination leads to the most unlikely truths.

Greene and other "string theorists" are exploring a possible scenario in which people and the world around us are actually a 3-D holographic projection of two-dimensional data that exists outside the accessible universe.

It's a concept so mindbending for those who don't understand the complex math behind it that many might decide it's best left to the academics. But Greene wants to build public excitement about science, even as the U.S. loses ground in some areas and intends to bring even the most complex ideas to the masses at this week's World Science Festival, which starts June 2.

"The idea is to ... find the compelling narrative and stories that allow these programs to really feel like an experience and not a lesson," says Greene, wearing a leather jacket that practically exudes old-school, rock-star cool. It's an appropriate look for a man who has brought the possible inner workings of the universe to scores of non-geniuses through his book "The Elegant Universe" and the PBS specials by the same name.

The physicist founded the festival in 2008 with his wife, Tracy Day. In a way, they say, it's an extension of his work translating into layman's terms the fundamentals of string theory the idea that the universe and its most fundamental forces could be best explained if everything around us were made up of minuscule, vibrating strings.

Greene is not the only scientist working to show Americans the relevance of the field, and hoping to make it cooler for U.S. youth. Despite the recent murmurings about the era of "geek chic," many teenagers still largely see science as a dorky pursuit, says Michio Kaku, a presenter at the festival and another string theorist who's built a career bringing his science to the public.

The numbers in the National Science Board's yearly examination of science and engineering indicators paint a mixed picture for American students. The number of high schoolers passing Advanced Placement exams in science quadrupled from 1990 to 2008; but between 2000 and 2006 the U.S. fell from seventh to 13th place in science literacy among 15-year-olds who took an international test.

Greene worries the U.S. is seeing a dissipation of its leadership in his field and others. When Columbia University, where Greene is a professor, received a grant earmarked for American postdoctoral fellows, Greene says his department had a hard time finding Americans to fill the spots.

At the same time, NASA has been directed to stop launching astronauts into orbit around the Earth and instead have them ride Russian rockets to and from the International Space Station. And Greene and other physicists still keenly feel the loss of a large-scale project canceled in 1993 that could have launched exciting discoveries similar to those being made now at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.

"If the superconducting super collider had been built in Waxahachie, Texas, and the world was coming here to undertake the most powerful collisions of particles that we've ever been able to achieve, recreating conditions since the Big Bang in Texas as opposed to Geneva, would that be better for America? Yeah, I think it would be," says Greene.

The Large Hadron Collider, which was partially funded by the U.S., has already made history sending proton beams crashing into each other at unheard of speeds. And research is speeding ahead elsewhere as well. China is far outpacing the U.S. in the growth of research and development spending, even though the U.S. is the clear worldwide leader responsible for one-third of the $1.1 trillion spent worldwide in 2007.

Perhaps if Americans understood why science is vital, interesting and profitable, they would have pressured the government to finance the project here, Greene says.

It is what the festival is, in part, seeking to accomplish now. The event hopes to make science as much a part of our cultural scene as dance or music. In one event, choreographer Karole Armitage has created a dance piece illustrating concepts from contemporary physics.

Topics to be addressed in panel discussions include the plausibility of the science of "Star Trek." And in an event simulcast from Norway, the $1 million Kavli prizes will be awarded in the fields of astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience.

The festival's opening night gala, which will honor British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, includes the premiere of "Icarus at the Edge of Time," an orchestral work by Philip Glass based on Greene's children's book about a journey to a black hole.

Since authoring the tale, Greene has turned his focus to a book for adults on the possible ways that multiple universes might manifest themselves.

One of the more popular science-fiction scenarios an alternate universe in which people are transformed to similar but evil or subtly different versions of themselves is but a remote possibility, he says. Instead, it's more likely that multiple universes exist alongside each other like bubbles in a bubble bath. The extremely fast expansion of the universe in our distant past, combined with elements of string theory, suggest this as a possibility, Greene said.

It is almost as difficult to wrap one's head around as the possibility that we are all holograms projected over a distance, unable to detect the illusory nature of our 3-D world another topic covered by a festival panel.

Greene's attempt to explain where our consciousness might reside, if we are indeed simply projections, is intriguing and perhaps less than comforting:

"It's there, too," he says. "Consciousness is nothing but the physical processes taking place in the brain. ... Consciousness is just another interaction of particles."

If you have been given the chance  or an almighty power to destroy the earth would you do it? Or will you ignore that power and instead heal the earth in a harder way.. If you want to destroy it then what is you're reason? as for me, I would like it to be destroyed so no one would have to reincarnate in the physical prison again and everyone will be free from the physical limitations.. just curious what most people would rather choose and why?  grin

I believe the planet will rebel against us and simply bury us. I believe  in the prophecies of the american natives.

This is what I believe too! the human species will be lost like the dinosaurs

The spiritual disciplines I took on as I moved through my life I adopted because they made sense.  There was no other reason.  There were things I did not understand about myself in relation to this world and these practices highlighted what I felt to know, keeping this always at the front of my mind and at the front of my life.  Savasana (dead man's pose) came to me first, then Trataka (conscious gazing), Pranayama (the breathing), then Brahmacarya (in the practical sense, sexual abstinence).  I was drawn toward Siva, the masculine disciplines of the jnani.  Awareness practices such as Atma Vichara, and teachers such as Sri Ramana Maharshi.  

thanx for the sincere post there omneycasey, but can you teach me how you actually do this savasana, trataka, pranayama?
210  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / so how do you actually raise your kundalini? on: May 08, 2010, 15:14:37
for those who did it either partially or the full medusa effect? I'm curios because I really wanna reach enlightenment and I don't want to return in this physical reality. I heard that in order to stop the process of reincarnation one must raise their kundalini. Pleeeaase share it here.... including the details of what to eat, kinds of meditations and counter measures to avoid the troubles of raising kundalini or how to raise kundalini safely

important to note that some earthquakes - and even volcanoes - are artificially induced. Of course I can't say how many of these incidents - if any - were induced, but it's regular practice for some organizations to massacre groups of people they don't like by setting off a natural disaster

How do they make artificial earthquakes?
216  2012 and The Transition of the Ages / Welcome to 2012 and The Transition of the Ages / Re: Earth changes and 2012 on: April 17, 2010, 17:01:32
Actually, the more likely scenario is that it's caused by all the crap we've done to the Earth.

Can you explain what we've done to the earth to cause more earthquakes and for the tectonic plates to crack? I think its all natural phenomena.. natural yet abnormal

Have you noticed that earthquakes are getting frequent nowadays with greater intensity? plus strange weather patterns are accelerating with the global economy getting worst! do you think its link with 2012? how come they're all happening together and is getting worse? Is it a coincidence..  huh

Did you have a sense of connection with this spirit at the moment you met him? like something about him connects to you? chances are, he is another aspect of your soul
224  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Ever met someone in the astral who committed suicide? on: April 13, 2010, 18:35:04
I know that projecting won't fix my problems, but it will make me happier. I would then have a place to go and relax/have fun for a change. Considering how boring and dull it is around here. It won't fix issues like finding a job, but it's beneficial. 

(Thread may go off topic from here on anyway)

I suggest joining a networking company
