Possible Implications of the Quantum Theory of Gravity: An Introduction to the Meduso-Anthropic Principle
- 96 Downloads
If we assume that the constants of nature fluctuate near the singularity when a black hole forms (assuming, also, that physical black holes really do form singularities) then a process of evolution of universes becomes possible. We explore the implications of such a process for the origin of life, interstellar travel, and the human future.
