Larry Krauss and Sir Martin Rees both had made jokes about the dangers of astronomers causing a collapse of the cosmos by viewing it? I am hoping that your tale is allegorical, but being something of a rightist, I see the crap that goes on at "public" universities, and grind my molars. In either case my attitude to the good university president at Caltech is fuck him if he can't take a joke.

Clark Did you know that Sean Carroll is moving to John Hopkins University? Rumor has it he was booted from Caltech after an insolent episode with its President. Sean insisted that energy of each world of the MWI reduces via applying Born's rule and that planets will nontheless remain in orbit despite reductions in gravity. Sean further asserted that the phenonomen would remain undetected -- to which the President asked if the Sun would still be seen in daytime after a few iterations of this process. Sean replied; "Who the fuck asked you to look out the window?" AG On Wednesday, April 27, 2022 at 4:36:19 PM UTC-6 Alan Grayson wrote: I found some stuff about you. Not very interesting, but somewhat explanatory. I gather you're subliminally jealous of my relationship with Carl Sagan, but for me it's not a big deal. I have a major regret that he didn't go through and publish what would have been my third citation during that period. I met him (and Pollack) again during Voyager 2's Neptune encounter at JPL. That was in 1989. Little did I suspect that five short years later Pollack would pass away, and two years later Sagan.
