That is not science..just a waste of time and resources!
What a huge waste of time and resources to let these fake scientists play their little dumb games to claim nonsense theories based on zero facts other than their own waste !
A team of researchers has created the largest virtual model of our universe, complete with billions of galaxies, to probe the effects of dark energy and dark matter. The ambitious project took about three years to complete. A group of astrophysicists from the University of Zurich (UZH) developed their code, PKDGRAV3, to …
Universe Expansion 101:
The universe is expanding into a finite PATA HDD and when it runs out of space the expansion will stop and loads of exceptions will occur unless the giant sysadmin in the sky migrates us to another disk.
The risk we face is that our universe exists on old legacy hardware in a server that has been forgotten about.
Dark matter is encrypted porn and anti-matter is the fake encrypted volume that is shown when our sysadmin needs to give out a password to decrypt the data.
Everything else is DLLs, drivers and old update installers that havent been purged.
We are malware.
Prove me wrong.
Oh man we're already getting religious here, all I did was explain the universe and the nature of the drive we're on.
You zealots are now talking about what kind of drive is the ideal drive and whether theres more than one drive.
Allow me to weigh in.
In the beginning was the drive and the drive was PATA. In the beginning it was also said "let there be light". Which could be interpreted as us existing on optical media. Which suggests that our existence is read only. I reject this as I prefer to think im in control of my own I/O.
All those extremists out there crying "allahu SATA", you need to live life like theres no backup because like all sysadmins the great sysadmin probably has backups but they are probably untested and in reality are no comparison to the production filesystem. Also, volatile data generally doesnt make it into a backup. Volatile data only hangs around for a short period of time and then is permanently erased. Stop seeking to corrupt other peaceful data as corrupted data is quickly identified and there are ways to remove corrupted data. The last thing you want is an intercontinental ballistic chkdsk.
To those worshipping multiple disks, this is a great theory but do we exist as a copy on each disk or is there a small block of each of us on each disk? Keep meditating and if you manage to access a higher level of being amongst the RAID controllers make sure you let us know.
Those of you fighting over the borders of a partition, you need to understand that partitions are only logical, they dont really exist we all share the same physical space regardless. Partitions are man made and divide the space we all have a right to access.
Finally, We're all better off if we assume this is the only disk, there are no backups and there are only finite resources available to us. Everything beyond that should be deemed as a bonus.
We should all coexist peacefully until this disk of existence is thrown into the shredder to meet the universally mandated data protection protocol.
In the beginning the drive was PATA? I think you'll find that the old testement makes no mention of SATA but refers instead only to SMD. Most modern scholars, however, regard SMD as a later interpolation: no-one is sure what was there originally, although some claim some significance to the term 'RAMAC' which has been discovered in some apoarently-early versions of the sacred texts.
However they could be running a parallel simulation universe on a parallel computer for comparison. Or even on the same computer....
However the type of sik - SATA, PATA, SAS blah blah - may not entirely be relevant if its a vm. The light could be from the FC switch, so mybe it is possible to cross over the LUN masking and into the parallel universe.
I suppose by that thinking all those scientists through the ages who studied electricity shouldn't have bothered because for a lot of them it could be seen as a waste of time and resources.
However then you would have no electricity which also means no computer so you wouldn't have been able to post your comment.
I suppose you could always have painted it on a cave wall with your fingers.
Anyway Mr caveman, do a little research before dismissing something as a waste of time, it might surprise you. I for one like this type of research, it may not be resolved in my life time but once it is then who knows what scientific advances can be made (see my example on electricity)
Well said, Joerg!
You are apparently the only person with a brain, which seems about normal in here...
>to generate a whopping two trillion particles to form 25 billion galaxies.<
That is 80 particles per galaxy!
I believe even the much abused Milky Way has a few more than that.
Does that sound like an accurate simulation to you liberals?
Would you like to buy a few Eiffel Towers, I may have some NOS in a box somewhere?
The purpose of Extreme Extrapolation is to keep bottom feeding scientists in Latte, and the ignorant public entertained.
Just one of the many types of idiot "science" which today is more popular than the real thing...
80 particles per galaxy sounds like overkill to me. Sample size effects tend to plateau out at around 30 data points per sample- where the t distribution and the z distribution become the same, to a practical number of decimal places.
Both conservative and liberal scientists knew that already. The keyword here is "scientist", not "liberal".
"Does that sound like an accurate simulation to you liberals?"
Definition of a "liberal" from the New Trump US Dictionary
1. willing to respect or accept behaviour or opinions different from one's own; open to new ideas.
"liberal views towards divorce"
2. A person who has voluntarily read a book that does not consist of mainly pictures.
I guess it depends on what they wish to find out. For example, some experiments (simulations) can be done with a few particles that give Galaxies the shape we have, with some assumptions of dark matter/energy. For example that dark matter does not "collide" with normal matter. With a few particles, you see that they have specific orbits/locations. You can then see what values match our observations and assumed distributions.
I say assumes, as it's rather likely that dark matter is just a type of matter with weak/other interactions (Like photons have no mass, electrons have charge and neutrons pass through most things :P ), but there is some possibility it is in our understanding of gravity or some other system that is in error right not.
With some more info on Quantum Gravity, things might start to take shape.
@Prst. V.Jeltz when they can fit it on one 1.44MB floppy, I'm interested, until then you'll find me doing sling shots round Sirius B in my Viper.
One thought though, is it possible dark matter is just all those ejected question marks you get from jettisoning nothing into space? (How else do you account for the increase in hold space?)
So is this the first large-scale simulation since the Millenium simulation more than 10 years ago
Back then we had: This progress has been made possible by important algorithmic improvements in the employed simulation code, and the high degree of parallelization reached with it, allowing the computation to be done efficiently on a 512 processor partition of the IBM p690 supercomputer of the Computing Center of the Max-Planck Society (RZG). (That machine was actually POWER4 based)
Fantastic job, you get algorithm design, SCIENCE, investment in high-performance computing and massive parallelism (i.e. ENGINEERING), happy Nvidia shareholders, busy PhD-chaser and irate creationists all in one action. More like this!
Define simulation. Is our observation to the correct level of dimensions? Or the correct arrangement of them?
Probably. Though there may be more cavett's than we first assumed. For example, see time dilation and relativity and a few other things such as Quantum effects. None of these break our previous understandings, just bend them slightly and explain some unique observations.
So I doubt we are "simulated", however the reality of what "existing" or the mechanical properties of "energy/matter" might be more complex and exciting than we first realise... though still not FTL or free energy! ;)
