my entire purpose in life is to use math and physics to understand how all evolution works. so it is no surprise to see me here now! I am currently enrolled in graduate study in Applied Math. My first hurdle will be to show how to seemingly isolated systems can evolve independent of one another according to the same rules. At least, thats what I'm going to sell my advisor. Unfortunately, the Department does not have enough folks in my field, so I may be forced to settle for less until I enter a phd program.

I have been avidly pursuing an understanding of evolution for a long time. So I would be more than happy to give advice where possible on this project.

If you are interested in my ideas in evolution, please checkout my blog. I have not updated it in awhile, but I will at some point. your best bet is to start with the first post and work your way up.

Great to have you here! However, i must warn you that we will most likely not be using completely accurate simulations for evolution because of complexity and processing issues. But naturally, you'll be a great help in simplifying our processes due to your work in mathematics.

Checking out that blog...

That's some fascinating stuff, and I mean it.
But on "The Hierarchy of Einstein and the Universe", wouldn't the probability of Einstein existing be the same as the universe existing, because the initial conditions of he universe acting upon a closed system (the universe itself) would yield only one possible outcome?

Bonjour! Welcome to the forum. And yes, I think you're right about that sciocont.

i assume the universe isn't a closed system. i'm definitely a subscriber of the multiverse theory.

Ah, okay. It's dependent upon interpretation. I like my universe unconnected to any possible others. Even a multivers system though, wouldn't you have a definite beginning and end? or is it infinite?

basically, given the the initial conditions of the universe, a conscious understanding of gravity is inevitable. regardless of the path the universe must take to get there.

entropy is a big big player in the evolution of the universe and us. so it would be no surprise to eventually see our universe sifted back down to nothingness. time as a timeline is an artificial approach to measuring change over time. with respect to entropy, some systems move slower or faster through time than others.

But will it be sifted...

or ripped?

entropy is what causes our universe to go from order to chaos.... people die and eggs break apart, it doesn't happen on reverse, from chaos to order
