Physicist: Universe May Be a “Strange Loop” of Self-Simulating Consciousness

(Jake Anderson) When it comes to cosmology, astronomy, and physics, there is no shortage of off-the-wall arguments and hypotheses. While new discoveries from the early moments of the Big Bang and quantum and particle physics continue to amaze us and fill in the gaps of our mysterious universe, there remains a stunning number of questions we still can’t answer.

New Data Says Universe Is Flat, Which Could Be Even Weirder Than It Sounds

(The Mind Unleashed) The shape of the universe is hard to get one’s head around, not only as a theoretical concept but as a mathematical one, yet it remains as one of the most important unanswered questions in physics. Determining the geometry of the universe, many scientists believe, will be fundamental to solving the mysteries of the cosmos.
