Cosmological Erogenous Novelty

Reply Tue 11 Jul, 2023 05:55 pm
Someone made a comment about this a week or two ago and when I went to comment, the thread was locked. I hope I'm not misbehaving to create a thread to comment. He was talking about a physics hypothesis called CEN (Cosmological Erogenous Novelty) proposed by a doctor (MD) named Robert Lanza. A reasonable brief description is that CEN proposes that in the beginning, the universe was in a state of minimum entropy, meaning there was no disorder or randomness. This could be interpreted as "no material, no energy, no space, and no time."

The CEN theory has largely been rejected by the physics community due to its lack of empirical evidence and scientific support. Many physicists view the theory as pseudoscientific and untestable, with some categorizing it as a form of mystical belief rather than scientific conjecture. While some aspects of the theory align with certain philosophical interpretations of quantum physics, mainstream physicists remain unconvinced.

Aren't all cosmological hypotheses untestable and lacking in empirical evidence? Or are our limited observations of phenomena in space and our observations of, say, the behavior of sub-atomic particles in the Hadron collider, sufficient to base hypothetical conjectures which garner more scientific support?

Cosmological physics hypotheses are testable to some extent. This is because several predictions made by these hypotheses can be tested through observations and experiments. For example, the theory of the Big Bang predicts the existence of a cosmic microwave background radiation, which was later observed in the 1960s. This radiation provides strong evidence for the Big Bang theory.

Additionally, the theory of dark matter predicts the existence of an unseen mass that makes up a significant portion of the universe. This hypothesis has been supported by various observations, including the rotational speeds of galaxies, galaxy clusters, and gravitational lensing. However, the search for dark matter particles in experiments has not yet yielded conclusive evidence.

Similarly, the theory of cosmic inflation predicts the existence of slight variations in the cosmic microwave background radiation. These predictions have been confirmed by various observations, such as those with the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe and the Planck Space Telescope.

While some aspects of cosmological physics hypotheses are not directly testable, predictions made by these theories can be tested through observations and experiments, providing empirical evidence to support or refute them.
