You're confusing possible with probable.


I don't think I am. Unless you're of the opinion that this theory is actually probable (i.e. likely), my choice of the words "mathematically possible" (i.e. within the bounds of possibility, but unlikely) seems an entirely appropriate way to describe it.

My mind is so far blown that after a while it all washed over my head like Islam.

What if every electron in the universe was all the same exact particle?

I'm pretty sure the addition of the word 'all' there shows some greater understanding and command of the English language than I will ever know.

MacG you're on a roll today. A few good ones from you.

if you think about it, literally anything and everything is possible


If that were really true, we wouldn't have disproven theories, such as the Earth being flat, or the Sun orbiting around it rather than the other way round.

"Strange" and unusual can one day becone the "facts" eh?


Well, they can certainly give you inspiration at any rate, as Feynman showed. And they still haven't worked out yet why there is more matter than antimatter (the main argument against this theory); the fact is that according to presently-accepted theories there *should* be equal amounts of each. There isn't, and nobody yet knows why.

As for a single Electron being God. I'm not sure about that, but there is another theory that the Universe only exists because we're here to observe it; which would make us the dreams that stuff is made of.

YAYA! I love this theory! And dozens of others like it. "Strange" and unusual can one day becone the "facts" eh?

ps: if there were just ONE electron, it would then be God...

Whilst Wheeler and Feynman's objections may only be valid if spacetime is truly linear in the way that we perceive it to be (rather than being shaped more like a Moibus strip - like a giant game of Asteroids where you go off one side and appear at the other), which would allow for predominant movement in a single direction, it's still an interesting abstract theory nonetheless, I think. The fact that it stands up mathematically if not experimentally is particularly interesting; antimatter was first discovered by Dirac messing around with numbers, not by a scientist in a lab; it was only much later that it was experimentally confirmed as a real phenomenon. Feynman did later on take some of the mathematical insight in this theory, and apply it to the behaviour of Electrons at a quantum level in his 'Feynman diagrams'; the very work that he won a Nobel Prize for.

Tbh, the most famous person associated with the idea, Richard Feynman, didn't really believe in it either. Neither did its originator, John Wheeler. The main problem is that the theory holds that Positrons (the antimatter equivalent of Electrons: equivalent to them in all things but their sign) are just electrons going backwards in time. If that were true, both Feynman and Wheeler appreciated that there should perhaps therefore be exactly as many of each (and co-incidentally no Universe since they'd annihilate one another).

I think the plasma cosmology theory is more credible than this.

im too stuupid for this


And yet, at least according to theory, you're made from the exact same electron as Einstein.
