something from nothing, lawrence krauss

“One of the most poetic facts I know about the universe is that essentially every atom in your body was once inside a star that exploded. © 1996-2020, Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates. The main theme of the book is how "we have discovered that all signs suggest a universe that could and plausibly did arise from a deeper nothing—involving the absence of spaceitself and—which may one day return to nothing via proc… That is, we are interested in what physical processes led to the Earth ending up in its present position. Right? The theories put forward, explained comprehensibly for a layman like me, will occupy the mind and show you new possibilities in our universe, that can be discovered in a matter of decades. And none of these poppings — if you look at them aright — amount to anything even remotely in the neighborhood of a creation from nothing." The problem for Krauss is two-fold. With science, there remains the possibility that nothing is. Let us know what’s wrong with this preview of, “The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. In fact, the entire universe sprung into existence spontaneously from nothing and continues to do so, according to Krauss. [1]Krauss would retort that his opponents continually change the definition of nothing so that the criteria for what is in fact "nothing" can never be met. Some portions of it are really complex to understand, I'm no a physicist and for me is hard to grasp some of the explanations.

with Scott Klusendorf. Relativistic-quantum-field-theoretical vacuum states — no less than giraffes or refrigerators or solar systems — are particular arrangements of elementary physical stuff. Krauss then invokes eternal inflation theory.It predicts the creation of multiple universes, each with its own random laws of physics.

In fact, as we shall see, Krauss can only reach these conclusions by radically redefining "nothing.". But I don’t really give a damn about what ‘nothing’ means to philosophers; I care about the ‘nothing’ of reality. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Imagine we are ants at the center of a football field here on Earth. Congrats to the PR team of Chutzpah, Cheek, and Insolence who scored big with the work they appear to have done for atheist Lawrence Krauss.

Far from it. We have mastered the secrets of nature and could even recreate the whole universe from a speck of dust."

Rather than the traditional understanding of "nothing" as absolute negation from which no effect can ever be caused (ex nihilo nihil fit), Krauss sees nothing as something that is dynamic and active, from which things not only can be spontaneously generated, but in fact have been and are constantly. It is well illustrated with clear diagrams. In an interview, Krauss acknowledges that no matter how one defines “nothing,” the laws of physics are not nothing (sorry to keep using the word nothing, but there’s nothing else to use!).

If there is something that exists above or beyond nature, it would not be subject to scientific scrutiny. If the big bang began with a closed universe, it would have had a very short lifetime.

A Universe from Nothing? Hold it up to a dark patch of the sky where there are no visible stars. Krauss, L. M. A Universe from Nothing, Why There is Something Rather than Nothing. Why diss philosophers who are only trying to bring the book’s assertions back to reality? [6], In the New York Times, philosopher of science and physicist David Albert said the book failed to live up to its title; he claimed Krauss dismissed concerns about what Albert calls his misuse of the term nothing, since if matter comes from relativistic quantum fields, the question becomes where did those fields come from, which Krauss does not discuss. Success! You can’t get away from philosophy. Philosophers from Plato to Augustine to Aquinas to Descartes have all understood what "nothing" means. It does not, however, rule out the existence of quantum fields. -- Sam Harris, author of The Moral Landscape This inherent instability in the quantum fields is Krauss's answer to the perennial philosophical problem of why there is something rather than nothing.The most serious critique of this theory is, of course, that Krauss is not really starting with nothing. “Nothing is unstable. The author goes out of his way to explain very complex concepts in easy to understand language. Even if we can discover that particles are produced because of this-and-that law operating in this-and-that space-time fabric or field, we are left with the question of where the principles came from and why there is a space-time fabric with quantum fields acting in it.

"However, according to Krauss, these vacuum states are inherently unstable. Design By Microhound. If "nothing" has properties, such as instability, then it is not nothing, because "nothing" in the strict sense cannot have any accidental properties that inhere in it. The Atlantic, April 2012, http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/print/2012/04/has-physics-made-philosophy-and-religion-obsolete/256203/. A quantum vacuum, on the other hand, is something—it consists of fields of fluctuating energy from which particles appear to pop in and out of existence. Does Archaeological Evidence Confirm Names, Dates, And Places In The Bible?

Since no thing isn’t anything, there are no properties to work with. Lawrence Krauss' new book "A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing." Please try again. If 'On the Origin of Species' was biology’s deadliest blow to supernaturalism, we may come to see 'A Universe from Nothing' as the equivalent from cosmology. Previous page of related Sponsored Products. Without science, everything is a miracle. Atria Books; unknown edition (January 1, 2013), Reviewed in the United States on July 3, 2016. The cosmologist has now emerged, earlier than anticipated, from under a major #MeToo cloud that resulted in his forced departure from his university and temporary disappearance from a role as a public figure. But there are also unknown unknowns. The same can't be said about the Dawkins afterword, which is both superfluous and silly.

When arranged in a certain way, the fields do not produce matter; yet, arranged another way, matter emerges from the fields. And the fact that particles can pop in and out of existence, over time, as those fields rearrange themselves, is not a whit more mysterious than the fact that fists can pop in and out of existence, over time, as my fingers rearrange themselves. Typically, the particles so produced must disappear in less than a quintillionth of a second. Lawrence Krauss, a renowned theoretical physicist, is director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University. "[10], Commenting on the philosophical debate sparked by the book, the physicist Sean M. Carroll asked, "Do advances in modern physics and cosmology help us address these underlying questions, of why there is something called the universe at all, and why there are things called 'the laws of physics,' and why those laws seem to take the form of quantum mechanics, and why some particular wave function and Hamiltonian? You're getting even better as a writer. A long-lasting flat universe — just what the CMB and other observations indicate! Yet, at the same time, if he is to preserve a scientist-materialist view of the universe without adopting the opposite canard that matter and energy are eternal, he has to account for it somehow. This book is an admirable and necessary prelude to the following book by Laurence Krauss "The Greatest Story Ever Told – So Far". (2005). Einstein had an observation about the man of science. The same inconsistencies are inherent in Dawkins' thinking. From the title alone you can tell this will conflict with what all ancient texts have to say about the origin of the universe.

In a word: no. “Now, almost one hundred years later, it is difficult to fully appreciate how much our picture of the universe has changed in the span of a single human lifetime.
