    So you decided stalking @Gąska was the solution?

    @timebandit I just read this morning about one thing that can't be explained by science: how does the universe exist at all?

    According to all the experimental data we have, matter and antimatter particles are completely identical in every way, except for the specific ways in which they're opposite. Therefore, they theoretically should have been produced in equal quantities by the Big Bang. But that's not what happened; we ended up with significantly more matter than antimatter, which doesn't make any sense at all by our current understanding of physics.

    The universe must be female 😜



  • @masonwheeler I watched a video that someone ( @lucas1?) had posted somewhere here about that. Basically, the presenter said that there is a whole bunch of flux of some type of quantum energy (gravitational? electro-magneto-gravitic?) in the vacuum of space that occasionally "pops" a bit of matter and anti-matter into existence, which then annihilate each other back out of existence; but that sometimes, rarely, more "positive" matter is created than anti-matter, so a little matter is left over, which can eventually combine with others to for subatomic particles. The presenter even had a bunch of math that he said shows that this hypothesis is theoretically plausible.

    I don't know whether the math checks out, but I doubt its accuracy beyond a hypothetical.

    This is an active research area, with significant known unknowns. Since the universe is definitely not symmetric in time, there must be something fairly significant going on. Nobody's really sure what it is. At least some theories I've heard of claim that the missing ingredient relates to (Einsteinian) gravitation, but that's really all up for grabs at this point.

    This stuff is deeply unintuitive and brain-bending. That's high-energy subatomic physics for you…

    That was not at all what I expected the title of 'CP violation' to describe.

    Oh, it's quite simple! You see, almost all the antimatter is travelling the opposite direction in time, and to do that it had to be created on the other end of the timeline. Of course, since we're travelling forward in time we see it all as matter.

    Which implies time is finite and has an end, right?

    Maybe. New time could be appear past the current ends, after all. Kind of like copyright, there's always a defined "end", but it always gets expanded before that end can threaten Mickey Mouse's proprietarinessThe universe's existence.

    OTOH, if this universe is going to end in a great inverse big bang, then it does provide a certain symmetry to the whole thing, does it not?



  • @masonwheeler said in That's one creepy notification:

    As we don't know the amount of matter/antimatter initially created we can't actually say that it was a significant amount more matter than antimatter. So we very well could be part of a near infinitesimally small % of matter that was not annihilated by antimatter.


  • Impossible Mission - B

    @dragoon I don't believe that's correct. It's been several years since I read this, so I might be wrong, but I think the imbalance ratio has been inferred because of... *waves hands* ...something-or-other to do with measuring the cosmic background radiation. The details escape me unfortunately. 😞


  • kills Dumbledore

    @masonwheeler All matter and anti matter that met and annihilated would have been converted to energy. I imagine the CMB is a good basis for calculating the total amount of energy in the Universe, so that can be compared to the total amount of mass to get some sort of ratio.

    My favourite potential explanation for the imbalance is an infinitely large, infinitely long lived steady state Universe, which is in balance overall, with smaller "pocket" universes appearing and disappearing all the time. On that scale, the old "everything that can happen will happen" aspect comes in to play and the existence of a universe that has enough extra matter over anti matter to last a few billion years is just a statistical blip among billions more that last a fraction of a second.

    Of course, that's basically metaphysics and/or pseudo science as the existence of anything outside the observable universe is unprovable by definition, but it's a fun thought experiment

    That's another cosmology deep ponderable.
