The Nature of Existence

Hey guys! I haven't posted for a long time since I'm kinda busy with other stuff. Anyway, as I was searching for something to watch today, I came across this documentary called "The Nature of Existence". I thought that this was kinda interesting so I'm sharing it here. Haven't seen it myself so I'll be watching this after I make this post. I hope you enjoy this.

Is the Universe Infinite?

Explore the biggest question of all.. Since ancient times, we've looked into the night skies and wondered: How far do the stars stretch out into space? And what's beyond them?

In modern times, we built giant telescopes that have allowed us to cast our gaze deep into the universe. Astronomers have been able to look back to near the time of its birth. They've reconstructed the course of cosmic history in astonishing detail.

From intensive computer modeling, and myriad close observations, they've uncovered important clues to its ongoing evolution. Many now conclude that what we can see, the stars and galaxies that stretch out to the limits of our vision, represent only a small fraction of all there is.

Does the universe go on forever? Where do we fit within it? And how would the great thinkers have wrapped their brains around the far-out ideas on today's cutting edge?

For those who find infinity hard to grasp, even troubling, you're not alone. It's a concept that has long tormented even the best minds.

Over two thousand years ago, the Greek mathematician Pythagoras and his followers saw numerical relationships as the key to understanding the world around them.

But in their investigation of geometric shapes, they discovered that some important ratios could not be expressed in simple numbers.

Take the circumference of a circle to its diameter, called Pi.

Computer scientists recently calculated Pi to 5 trillion digits, confirming what the Greeks learned: there are no repeating patterns and no ending in sight.

The discovery of the so-called irrational numbers like Pi was so disturbing, legend has it, that one member of the Pythagorian cult, Hippassus, was drowned at sea for divulging their existence.

A century later, the philosopher Zeno brought infinity into the open with a series of paradoxes: situations that are true, but strongly counter-intuitive.

In this modern update of one of Zeno's paradoxes, say you have arrived at an intersection. But you are only allowed to cross the street in increments of half the distance to the other side. So to cross this finite distance, you must take an infinite number of steps.

In math today, it's a given that you can subdivide any length an infinite number of times, or find an infinity of points along a line.

What made the idea of infinity so troubling to the Greeks is that it clashed with their goal of using numbers to explain the workings of the real world.

To the philosopher Aristotle, a century after Zeno, infinity evoked the formless chaos from which the world was thought to have emerged: a primordial state with no natural laws or limits, devoid of all form and content.

But if the universe is finite, what would happen if a warrior traveled to the edge and tossed a spear? Where would it go?

It would not fly off on an infinite journey, Aristotle said. Rather, it would join the motion of the stars in a crystalline sphere that encircled the Earth. To preserve the idea of a limited universe, Aristotle would craft an historic distinction.

On the one hand, Aristotle pointed to the irrational numbers such as Pi. Each new calculation results in an additional digit, but the final, final number in the string can never be specified. So Aristotle called it "potentially" infinite.

Then there's the "actually infinite," like the total number of points or subdivisions along a line. It's literally uncountable. Aristotle reserved the status of "actually infinite" for the so-called "prime mover" that created the world and is beyond our capacity to understand. This became the basis for what's called the Cosmological, or First Cause, argument for the existence of God.

Quantum Suicide and Immortality, Schrödinger's Cat and the Weird World of Quantum Mechanics

This is a very long article but I promise that it's worth the read if you find Physics fascinating.

How Quantum Suicide Works
by Josh Clark

Introduction to How Quantum Suicide Works
A man sits down before a gun, which is pointed at his head. This is no ordinary gun; i­t's rigged to a machine that measures the spin of a quantum particle. Each time the trigger is pulled, the spin of the quantum particle -- or quark -- is measured. Depending on the measurement, the gun will either fire, or it won't. If the quantum particle is measured as spinning in a clockwise motion, the gun will fire. If the quark is spinning counterclockwise, the gun won't go off. There'll only be a click.

Nervously, the man takes a breath and pulls the trigger. The gun clicks. He pulls the trigger again. Click. And again: click. The man will continue to pull the trigger again and again with the same result: The gun won't fire. Although it's functioning properly and loaded with bullets, no matter how many times he pulls the trigger, the gun will never fire. He'll continue this process for eternity, becoming immortal.

Go back in time to the beginning of the experiment. The man pulls the trigger for the very first time, and the quark is now measured as spinning clockwise. The gun fires. The man is dead.

But, wait. The man already pulled the trigger the first time -- and an infinite amount of times following that -- and we already know the gun didn't fire. How can the man be dead? The man is unaware, but he's both alive and dead. Each time he pulls the trigger, the universe is split in two. It will continue to split, again and again, each time the trigger is pulled.­

This thought experiment is called quantum suicide. It was first posed by then-Princeton University theorist Max Tegmark in 1997 (now on faculty at MIT). A thought experiment is an experiment that takes place only in the mind. The quantum level is the smallest level of matter we've detected so far in the universe. Matter at this level is infinitesimal, and it's virtually impossible for scientists to research it in a practical manner using traditional methods of scientific inquiry.­

Dark Future of the Sun

Our Sun has served Earth well for almost five billion years. It's bathed us with heat and energy. But like humans, our home star is mortal. In five billion years, it will stop nurturing its planetary offspring.

The Sun

Taken by Hinode's Solar Optical Telescope on January 12, 2007, this image of the Sun reveals the filamentary nature of the plasma connecting regions of different magnetic polarity.

The aging star will bloat out beyond the orbit of our planet incinerating all living things--including humans if we're still around.

Total Eclipse

Once they were dreaded and thought to be dragons eating the sun!

But modern science has dispelled mythology and we now look forward to total Solar Eclipses as one of the most spectacular phenomena in the heavens.

How a total solar eclipse occurs.

Explore the complex movements of Earth, Moon and Sun that produce these unusual events and hear details why we may be the only intelligent beings in the known Universe to witness eclipses like we see on Earth. Man-made eclipses also figure into the science in the form of instruments called “coronagraphs.” They blot out the sun and reveal its corona, uncovering secrets which, while enlightening, also warn of a disaster that could make our advanced technology crash and burn.

Finally, travel into deep space, where the tiny eclipses caused by planets circling distant stars is now beginning to reveal hundreds more stars where “exoplanets” exist… perhaps even those in habitable zones like the Earth.

Asteroid Attack

What are the latest discoveries in the deadly world of asteroids? Will a Japanese spacecraft become the first to bring an asteroid sample back home?

253 Mathilde, an asteroid measuring about 50 kilometres (30 mi) across. Photograph taken in 1997 by the NEAR Shoemaker probe.

What would happen to America's east coast if the impact that helped form Chesapeake Bay 35 million years ago struck today? And why did President Obama choose an asteroid as the destination for the next manned mission into space? Learning about these huge space rocks isn't just about science, it's about survival.

Secrets of the Space Probes

They've discovered water on other planets, and snatched the actual building blocks of life from a comet's tail.

Voyager 1 - the farthest human-made object from Earth at 17.242 billion km, or 10.712 billion miles and currently traveling at 17.07 km/s or 61,452 km/h (38,185 mph)

But can space probes find a new Earth and even make contact with alien life? In the 21st century, space probes are photographing, drilling and even sniffing new worlds in the quest for life and scanning thousands of distant suns trying to detect Earth-like planets. It's only a matter of time before space probes unlock the secrets to extra-terrestrial life and the universe itself.

Time Travel

One of the universe's most enduring mysteries is time travel.

Albert Eisntein

Discover why time travel into the future is unavoidable in the Einsteinian world of relativity. As for the past the laws of physics don't tell us it's impossible, but the bizarre consequences of going into the past and altering the future make for mind-bending science. Finally go for the future by traveling to the nearest star, 4.3 light years away in only 45 days.

Magnetic Storm

It bursts from the sun with the power of 10,000 nuclear weapons and when it hits our planet it could create the largest disaster in recorded history.

Coronal Mass Ejections - When these blast through the sun's outer atmosphere and plow toward Earth at speeds of thousands of miles per second, the resulting effects can be harmful to communication satellites and astronauts outside the Earth's magnetosphere. On the ground, the magnetic storm wrought by these solar particles can knock out electric power. A better understanding of this solar activity could give people on Earth more time to prepare by placing satellites in a safe configuration, planning the best time for astronaut space walks or rocket launches, and implementing contingency plans to deal with any power outages.

A magnetic storm from the sun could wipe out electrical power and nearly every piece of electronics in the Northern Hemisphere. It's a planet-wide hurricane of magnetic forces that scramble all 21st Century technology, possibly for good. What causes this magnetic superstorm? Why is magnetism so powerful and yet so poorly understood? And is there anything we can do to prevent the Magnetic Storm?

Mars: The New Evidence

In the last few years, Mars has shown many new clues that life may have once existed there and may even exist there today.

The Red Planet

There is now proof that water once flowed on the surface and that the frozen poles are mostly water, not carbon dioxide as previously thought. Mars has snow, an auror and lightning generated by dust storms. Most intriguing of all are the seasonal plumes of methane that just may point to bacteria living below the surface.

First Life with David Attenborough

After fifty years of broadcasting, Sir David Attenborough goes back to the very beginning of life to reveal an astonishing alien-looking world. If "science is poetry of reality", this mesmerizing feature is certainly a proof of it.

First Life tackles the subject of the origin of life on Earth. He investigates the evidence from the earliest fossils, which suggest that complex animals first appeared in the oceans around 500 million years ago, an event known as the Cambrian Explosion. Trace fossils of multicellular organisms from an even earlier period, the Ediacaran biota, are also examined. The naturalist travels to Canada, Morocco and Australia, using some of the latest fossil discoveries and their nearest equivalents amongst living species to reveal what life may have been like at that time. The series utilises cutting-edge visual effects to reconstruct and animate the extinct life forms.

BBC Horizon 2010: What Happened Before the Big Bang

They are the biggest questions that science can possibly ask: where did everything in our universe come from? How did it all begin? For nearly a hundred years, we thought we had the answer: a big bang some 14 billion years ago.

But now some scientists believe that was not really the beginning. Our universe may have had a life before this violent moment of creation.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

Part 6

This is a really good documentary. It tackles about different scientific theories about the beginning of the Universe. It will give you a glimpse about the chaotic world of Cosmology! lol

I'm sure this will also cause some confusion to a few people.

I'm Back!

Hey guys! Sorry for the absence. I was too lazy too update this blog! lol

Actually, the storm took down my net for almost a week after my last post.

When it returned, I was too lazy to continue posting so I took a small "vacation".

Anyway, I'll be posting again from now on.

I have a lot of awesome documentary videos to show to everyone!

No Proper Post Today / Adbrite

My internet is kinda acting up because of the typhoon and I haven't got any new videos to share with.

Anyway, since halloween is just a few days away, I thought I'd share this with everyone.

I received an email earlier today from Adbrite. They said the my blog is generating invalid clicks or impressions thereby disabling my account. Of course I emailed them back asking for more information and a possible re-review. Just now, they email me again saying that after a re-reviewed, they still concluded that my blog is really generating invalid clicks and impression and that my account will not be reinstated.

I must say, this really is a letdown. Although I wasn't expecting much from it, it still upsets me quite a bit.

Anyway, I think I have found a new interesting documentary and I'll share it with you guys later.

The Beauty of the Night Sky

No more documentary videos for now. Instead, I present to you this video about the night sky.

Btw, ESO stands for European Southern Observatory. That's the place where this video was shot.

Also, if you haven't guessed yet, VLT is for Very Large Telescope!(No SHIT, Einstein!)

So, as of this moment this is the situation here:

See that white spot? I'm under it right now! Well anyway, I hope things won't take a turn for the worst; otherwise, I won't be able to comment on your blog and update mine.

Evolve - Speed (Last Episode)

Episode 11

The ability to react and move can often mean the difference between life and death in the animal kingdom. Some animals have evolved into championship fliers, swimmers, and runners.

What are the forces that create this need for speed, and how do animal bodies adapt to go into overdrive? In this episode, find out about nature’s ultimate engine, muscle, how it evolved and how it works. Meet some of the fastest species on earth.

Friday, October 15, 2010

Evolve - Shape

Episode 10

Living organisms have entered into a battle for survival for hundreds of millions of years and the pressure to survive has resulted in ever changing shapes. From the hammerhead shark to the platypus, new and sometimes extreme shapes can mean survival for certain species. But, as nature has proven, sometimes the most basic shapes on earth have the staying power of survival. This episode will explore the evolution of animal shape and how the slightest alteration of a leg or a head can mean the difference between life and extinction.

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Evolve - Venom

Episode 9

The deadliest natural weapon employed in the animal kingdom, venom has independently evolved in creatures as diverse as jellyfish, insects, snakes, and even mammals.

Scientists from around the globe show how evolution adapted venom to fit the needs of the animals who wield it. Injecting venom into samples of his blood, Australia’s Bryan Fry demonstrates how the world’s deadliest snake, the inland taipan, has converted the building blocks of its body into lethal toxins. Toto Olivera will introduce us to the cone snail, pound-for-pound the most toxic creature in the world, able to continually update its chemical cocktails with the help of the world’s fastest-evolving genes, guaranteeing the creatures stay one step ahead of their prey.

Evolve - Size

Episode 8

Life has evolved into a multitude of sizes. Over the course of three billion years, life has taken on many forms – from an .02-micrometer-long bacteria to the 110-foot-long blue whale. Scientists are learning how the struggle for survival has led some animals to become small and others to get huge.

Understanding the evolution of size tells us why giant dinosaurs went extinct while the first tiny mammals thrived; gives us answers to why mammoths evolved into pygmies when restricted to islands; and why carnivorous mammals have never grown to weigh more than a ton. Whether it’s the speed of movement or population numbers, the biological world revolves–and “evolves”–around size.

Evolve - Communications

Episode 7

How has our ability to communicate defined us as a species? Sharing information with each other has allowed humans to rise to the top of the food chain and dominate our environments. But humans aren’t the only species that can communicate.

Organisms as simple as bacteria can communicate, a strategy that lets them cooperate to take down creatures millions of times their own size. Fish use pheromones to warn each other about predators and find mates. Chemicals are also an effective means of communicating on land, and they’ve allowed insects – some of nature’s smallest and most unassuming animals – to become the most populous and prolific on earth. The ability to interact stretches back billions of years and has often been one of the primary factors in a species ability to evolve and survive.

Evolve - Flight / 300 Followers

Well, I have more than 300 minions now! lol
Thanks for the supports guys!

Episode 6

Humans have always been fascinated with the one part of the world that we could not conquer – the sky. How did the earth’s first flying creatures come to be? In this episode of Evolve we will examine the first vertebrate flyer, the pterosaur, which took to the air over 220 million years ago and eventually evolved to be the size of small airplanes.

Scientists have long pondered how they, the largest flying creatures ever, were able to achieve such an astonishing feat. Scientists examine the fossil record and living birds to try and unlock how some species evolved to have the remarkable trait of flight.

Evolve - Skin

Guys, sorry for not doing the rounds last night and earlier today. Been out since last night and I just got home. It's 10 PM here. Will be doing the rounds now.
Episode 5

It makes up 16% of your body weight, is the largest organ in the human body, allows birds to fly, mammals to nurse their young, and provides a lifelong defence against predators and parasites alike. What is it? Skin.

From the delicate membranes that encased the earliest animals to the leathery hides that protected the dinosaurs, this episode looks at how skin has changed and adapted to virtually any challenge it has faced throughout history.

Saturday, October 9, 2010

Evolve - Sex

Episode 4

In the history of life on earth, sex may be the ultimate survival skill, because the bottom line is: reproduce or die. This episode looks at sex in its many forms, from sharks – among the first vertebrates to have intercourse – to dinosaurs that had to figure out how to join their giant bodies together to mate.

From the stick insect (that mates non-stop for 10 straight weeks) to macaques monkeys (about once an hour)… and finally to humans. This driving force of life comes in many forms. How will sex evolve in the future? Are we evolving beyond sex? In fact, is a time coming when we will be able to seize control of our own evolution… not via sex at all, but through genetic engineering?

Friday, October 8, 2010

Evolve - Jaws

Episode 3

It’s one of the most important developments in the history of life. An adaptation that lets animals kill, butcher, and devour. There is perhaps no instrument more important to survival than a strong set of jaws.

From the shark’s rows of razor-sharp serrated teeth, the crocodile’s overwhelmingly swift-snapping-trap, to the lion’s shredding canines–all have evolved in response to the never-ending struggle between predator and prey. But just how did these ultimate killing weapons develop in the first place?

Thursday, October 7, 2010

Evolve - Guts

Episode 2

It doesn’t just take willpower to survive. It takes guts–in the form of a digestive system that turns food into fuel. Look closely at the role guts have played in shaping some of Earth’s most successful animals: tyrannosaurs, snakes, cows, humans and others.

Take a 575-million year journey that begins with the planet’s first multi-cellular organisms and ends at our dinner tables. Watch as live-action natural history sequences, CGI, epic docudrama, and experimental science help to illustrate our and our fellow species’ eternal struggle for survival on earth.

Evolve - Eyes

Guys, this time I'm bringing you this great documentary series called "Evolve". This is an 11-part documentary series that focuses on Evolution as the results of Natural Selection.

Episode 1

Seeing is believing … not to mention evading, eating and surviving! Learn how the eyeball evolved from ancestors of jellyfish who developed light-sensitive cells to the unique adaptations that allowed primates to better exploit their new habitat, while the ability to see colors helped them find food.

Through the Wormhole - Dark Matter: Beyond the Darkness (Last Episode)

Episode 8

What is the universe made of? If you answered stars, planets, gas and dust, you’d be dead wrong. Enjoy the final episode of Through The Wormhole with Morgan Freeman.

Thirty years ago, scientists first realized that some unknown dark substance was affecting the way galaxies moved. Today, they think there must be five times as much dark matter as regular matter out there. But they have no idea what it is — only that it’s not made of atoms, or any other matter we are familiar with. And Dark Matter is not the only strange substance in the Universe — a newly discovered force, called Dark Energy, seems to be pushing the very fabric of the cosmos apart.

Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence — the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity. What are we made of? What was there before the beginning? Are we really alone? These questions have been pondered by the most brilliant minds in history.

Now, modern science may be able to provide us with answers.

Through the Wormhole - What Are We Really Made Of?

Episode 7

Our understanding of the universe and the nature of reality itself has drastically changed over the last 100 years, and it’s on the verge of another seismic shift. In a 17-mile-long tunnel buried 570 feet beneath the Franco-Swiss border, the world’s largest and most powerful atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider, is powering up.

Its goal is nothing less than recreating the first instants of creation, when the universe was unimaginably hot and long-extinct forms of matter sizzled and cooled into stars, planets, and ultimately, us. These incredibly small and exotic particles hold the keys to the greatest mysteries of the universe. What we find could validate our long-held theories about how the world works and what we are made of. Or, all of our notions about the essence of what is real will fall apart.

Through the Wormhole - Are We Alone?

Episode 6

Aliens almost certainly do exist. So why haven’t we yet met E.T.?

It turns out we’re only just developing instruments powerful enough to scan for them, and science sophisticated enough to know where to look. As a result, race is on to find the first intelligent aliens. But what would they look like, and how would they interact with us if we met? The answers may come to us sooner than we imagine, for one leading astronomer believes she may already have heard a hint of their first efforts to communicate.

Through the Wormhole - How Did We Get Here?

Episode 5

Everywhere we look, life exists in both the most hospitable of environments and in the most extreme. Yet we have only ever found life on our planet. How did the stuff of stars come together to create life as we know it? What do we really mean by ‘life’?

And will unlocking this mystery help us find life elsewhere?

Through the Wormhole - What Happened Before the Beginning?

Episode 4

Every cosmologist and astronomer agrees: our Universe is 13.7 billion years old. Using cutting-edge technology, scientists are now able to take a snapshot of the Universe a mere heartbeat after its birth.

Armed with hypersensitive satellites, astronomers look back in time to the very moment of creation, when all the matter in the Universe exploded into existence.

It is here that we uncover an unsolved mystery as old as time itself — if the Universe was born, where did it come from? Meet the leading scientists who have now discovered what they believe to be the origin of our Universe, and a window into the time before time.
