This is a subject that we've discussed repeatedly here, so I thought you might find Tegmark's narration of this video interesting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGG4HmlotJE I'm pretty sure that mathematics are not only something humans created, that they are based on relations we observe in the world, but beyond that, I remain largely agnostic on the Mathematical Universe Hypothesis … Continue reading Max Tegmark and MinutePhysics on the mathematical universe

# Tegmark’s Mathematical Universe Hypothesis

I recently read Max Tegmark’s latest book, ‘Our Mathematical Universe‘, about his views on multiverses and the ultimate nature of reality. This is the fourth and final post in a series on the concepts and views he covers in the book. The previous entries were: Tegmark’s Level I Multiverse: infinite space Tegmark’s Level II Multiverse: bubble universes … Continue reading Tegmark’s Mathematical Universe Hypothesis

# Tegmark’s Level III Multiverse: The many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics

I recently finished reading Max Tegmark’s latest book, ‘Our Mathematical Universe‘, about his views on multiverses and the ultimate nature of reality. This is the third in a series of posts on the concepts and views he covers in the book. The previous entries are: Tegmark’s Level I Multiverse: infinite space Tegmark’s Level II Multiverse: bubble universes Tegmark … Continue reading Tegmark’s Level III Multiverse: The many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics

# Tegmark’s Level II Multiverse: bubble universes

I recently finished reading Max Tegmark’s latest book, ‘Our Mathematical Universe‘, about his views on multiverses and the ultimate nature of reality. This is the second in a series of posts on the concepts and views he covers in the book. Tegmark postulates four levels of multiverse. In the first post of this series, I described Termark's Level I … Continue reading Tegmark’s Level II Multiverse: bubble universes

# Tegmark’s Level I Multiverse: infinite space

I've just finished reading Max Tegmark's latest book, 'Our Mathematical Universe', about his views on multiverses and the ultimate nature of reality. This is the first in a series of posts that I plan to do on it. Tegmark postulates four levels of multiverse. This post is about the first, and simplest version, the Level I … Continue reading Tegmark’s Level I Multiverse: infinite space

# Are Parallel Universes Unscientific Nonsense?

If you’re a multiverse skeptic, you should know that there are many potential weaknesses in the case for parallel universes, and I hope you’ll find my cataloging of these weaknesses below useful. To identify these weaknesses in the pro-multiverse arguments, we first need to review what the arguments are. via Are Parallel Universes Unscientific Nonsense? … Continue reading Are Parallel Universes Unscientific Nonsense?
