His dog is probably like Brian on /The Family Guy/ - the smartest one in the whole house.

But I still don't get why Barry would post a review of a pirated copy of /Intersteller/ that he watched on a 14 inch laptop, with Dutch captions.

We saw it on the IMAX screen in 70 mm in Dolby Surround Sound and it was great.

He didn't seem to enjoy the movie very much - something probably got lost in the translation. Go figure.

that's cool, Michael. One of the informants here went in and out of dimensions while simply walking through the city in which he lives.

We were all so envious, wishing we could be special like that.

The rest of us, sigh, can only take simple, uneventful walks, sigh.

That's not true - there are any number of channels and New Age-y types who claim there are multiple dimensions all over the place.

There is no evidence for there being any multiverses - it is as much a leap of faith as believing in God. The "God option" really means you have trust in whatever is unfolding.

There might be soon. David Deutsch, who runs the quantum computing lab at Oxford, makes the case that multiverse theories are the simplest way of explaining quantum theory. Most other physicists disagree due to lack of evidence but he intends to prove it using a virtual reality program of an atom running on a quantum computer.

I don't fully get what he's going on about but apparently there is a way that quantum computers can reveal how they work while they are doing computations about themselves (!), this will tell us a lot about what sort of universe we live in. All we need is a computer we don't have yet that exploits Qbits, the ability of things in the quantum world to be in potentially two, or more, places at once. But they are on the way. I get the impression that if he pulls it off he'll be the most famous scientist since Einstein but it's a long way away. But quantum computing is the future whatever it tells us.

But as I said in another post, this in't the multiverse you are talking about but they might be provable - should they exist. Maybe cosmologists should just start again. Wouldn't be the first time...
