Title: Dark energy not as fine tuned as thought?
Post by: eclipse on May 18, 2018, 06:57:51 am
Hi all,
I've always wondered how the enormous 10 to the 120 power was calculated. That's like saying 10 to the million times a million times a million until you've said it 20 times! But new physics models seem to imply dark energy's impact on a given universe could be a lot less than previously thought.

But then there's this pearl of wisdom! "According to the research, if we live in a Multiverse, we’d expect to observe much more dark energy than we do – perhaps 50 times more than we see in our Universe." I'm sorry, as I have a humanities brain and never did physics, but why would any property in our universe indicate *anything* about any other possible universes, and even the possibility of their existence? This dark energy seems to be vastly more mysterious to me now than it was before this article!

I want to be part of the conversation here.

I'm wondering if dark energy could be interpreted as primary substance in Aristotelian-Thomist terms?
