ELLIE'S WORLD TODAY
Time and Time Again
Let's go back to where you were one year ago today. 12/12/12 was 3 days away. 12/21/12 was just over a week away. What were you anticipating?
How did you feel when nothing happened ... or did something happen ... experienced by those who set things in motion?
Does it feel like a year has passed since the Mayan Calendar Prophecy Event fizzled? Strange ... but to me that seems like another reality that happened really long ago to which I am not connected.
How have your beliefs changed in 2013?
In a "Rainbow" Universe Time May Have No Beginning Scientific American - December 9, 2013
What if the universe had no beginning, and time stretched back infinitely without a big bang to start things off? That's one possible consequence of an idea called "rainbow gravity," so-named because it posits that gravity's effects on space-time are felt differently by different wavelengths of light, aka different colors in the rainbow. Rainbow gravity was first proposed 10 years ago as a possible step toward repairing the rifts between the theories of general relativity (covering the very big) and quantum mechanics (concerning the realm of the very small). The idea is not a complete theory for describing quantum effects on gravity, and is not widely accepted. Nevertheless, physicists have now applied the concept to the question of how the universe began, and found that if rainbow gravity is correct, space-time may have a drastically different origin story than the widely accepted picture of the big bang. According to Einstein's general relativity, massive objects warp space-time so that anything traveling through it, including light, takes a curving path.
