Dr. Bert Schellekens (a M-string Theory physicist at the university of Nijmegen) discussed the multiverse at Erik Andrulis’ blog (Anacephalaeosis)
Dr. Bert Schellekens said that “As I say in the introduction, there is also no empirical evidence of the contrary, namely that our universe, and especially its laws of physics are unique, … The main reason is that they seem to violate the general Copernican belief that human beings are not central to anything, and hence that their existence should play no role in deriving the laws of physics”
The following is my comment at that discussion (http://erikandrulis.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/my-email-interview-with-the-theoretical-physicist-dr-bert-schellekens/comment-page-1/#comment-475 ).
Peter Woit (from “not even wrong” blog) wrote, “… since the story of the last thirty years is not one of evidence for string [M-] theory unification accumulating, but the opposite: the more we learn about string [M-] theory, the less likely it seems that it can predict anything. … String [M-] theory unification is an idea now discredited in the scientific community, … I actually know many people who work on string theory who have given up on the idea of getting the Standard Model out of it. The most common attitude I hear among string theorists is that the ways people used to hope to connect it to the SM have failed.”
There is no single argument of Dr. Bert Schellekens making Woit’s statement invalid. Yet, in Dr. Philip Gibbs’ blog (ViXra log), the G-string (at http://blog.vixra.org/2013/05/16/why-i-still-like-string-theory/#comment-32532 ) showed that Woit is wrong while he is not wrong about the M-theory.
M-theory was a true theoretical attempt as a physics theory but failed dismally. Its arguments do not make sense any more. Woit despises the M-theory for the reason that it did not make any testable prediction. On the other hand, I can happily accept the concept of multiverse if it can find one-verse from its zillion-verses to make a perfect “match” with this “known” universe. By failing to do this simple request, Dr. Bert Schellekens’ saying that “As I say in the introduction, there is also no empirical evidence of the contrary, namely that our universe, and especially its laws of physics are unique” is simply nonsense.
Even if we do not know the final theory, we do know the criteria for the final theory. Again, M-theory just needs to show us one-verse from its zillion-verse to encompass the bio-lives. That is, the physics laws of this particular “one-verse” do have a “hyperlink” to bio-lives. Show us the “Link”. By failing to do this simply request, Dr. Bert Schellekens’ saying that “The main reason is that they seem to violate the general Copernican belief that human beings are not central to anything, and hence that their existence should play no role in deriving the laws of physics” is simply nonsense.
At least, in this “universe”, there is “life”. Your gyre theory is indeed the topological representation of the life-force. As far as we know, all hierarchies building are done with the self-similarity transformation. That is, the physics laws of this “universe” must have the “seed” of a gyre representation, and this is the “must” criterion for the physics laws of this “universe” while might not be true for the other zillion-verses.
By not being able to know what is going on around us but bragging about the details of Alice-wonderland, it is simply nonsense. It goes way beyond of being not the correct and final model of reality.
Erik Andrulis’ reply : “ It [multiverse] does not include you and it does not include me. As it excludes both of us, it is an incomplete theory. It is not the correct and final model of reality.”
