Congratulations all around this week to Yoichiro Nambu, Makoto Kobayashi and Toshihide Maskawa, who share in the Nobel Prize for their paradigm-shattering work into such foundational issues as QCD, strings, and the question of why anything exists.

That last one is a blunt way of describing the way theoretical physics comes at the mysterious imbalance between...

"given that baryon symmetry evidently can break, as ours did, aren’t the chances of a perfectly symmetrical outcome vanishingly small, given the design space of possible universes?" -- Well said, and I'd never thought of it this way before. I wonder if there are other elements of the anthropic "fine tuning" argument that are susceptible to the same kind of treatment?

I haven't read Dan Brown's novel, but the notion that god is the most efficient explosion possible seems rather refreshing.

What kind of idiot would think that their is more than one universe. And which idiot said there's such a thing as anti matter. I can tell you right now that there are no such things as protons and newtrons (I can prove it). Although electrons and positrons do exist. Heck I can even tell you that the modern model of the atom is false. I'll give you a few problems for his theory (on next blog).

1- in order for his theory to be true. Matter would have to have been there before the creation of the universe.2- it explains no accurate details about space phenomilies such as black holes, gravity, and such.3-almost all matter has the same properties small/big. Almost all as in, there are different types of atoms, and it really doesn't get any smaller that, unless you count the matter by itself.To ask question email at: atomiton1@yahoo.com

I thought about it, and I found out why he might think like that. When gamma rays hits an atom the atom speeds up to point where it expands. No matter would be created though.

For the most part this was a pretty standard representation of standard theory. The problem was that there was only one possible route discribed. However, at the same time, in the author's musings, aspects of the scappy modern Dominium lens were alluded to. For instance, the author mused about, "antimatter creatures living in an antimatter universe ... Cosmic rays from anti-supernovae colliding with our anti-atmosphere would spit out bits of actual matter, short-lived protons and alpha particles and whatnot."

The author's musing is very close to the Dominium's actual conclusions of antimatter galaxies, not universe, while we happen to live in a matter-based one.

The new model is compatible with all established data and/or observation. Come see the new model as it is unfolded at http://hypography.com/forums/alternative-theories/18910-the-
dominium-model-by-hasanuddin.html
