Why the Universe Is Our Home: It’s Not a Coincidence

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 19, 2013

It would be reassuring to most people to discover that the universe is constructed to favor life.  If the human race isn’t a freakish outcome of highly improbable chance events, we have every right to see the universe as our home. But this psychological reassurance strikes physicists and biologists as wishful thinking; the bulwark of modern science, from the most minuscule events at the quantum scale to the Big Bang itself, is the assumption that creation is random, without guidance, plan, mind or purpose.

Only very slowly has such a blanket view been challenged, but these new challenges are among the most exciting possibilities in science. We’d like to outline the argument for a “human universe” with an eye to understanding why the human race exists. This question is too central to be left to a small cadre of professional cosmologists and evolutionary biologists; everyone has a personal stake in it.

The most accepted theory of the large-scale structure of the universe is Big Bang cosmology, which has achieved impressive results. Yet when you try to model the universe, you can’t escape the problems surrounding what seems like a simple act: observing it.  Measuring the cosmos is intricately interwoven with limits imposed by the process of observation itself. As you go back in time or ahead into the future, as you reach so far into space that light takes billions of years to reach Earth,  any possible model encounters horizons of knowledge at some ultimate, faint observational limit. Beyond such a horizon, observation is blocked, and so are physics, mathematics and the human mind.

For example, with the Big Bang theory, light cannot be used to observe further back in time or across immense distances to arrive close to the very beginning itself. The first instant of the Big Bang remains forever hidden from the present. Knowledge about the early universe has to be inferred. We can examine the parts that scattered after the Big Bang, but we cannot grasp the whole. Thus, our observational limitations prohibit verifying cosmological theories to any degree of accuracy for any observational test. So the Hubble telescope, marvelous as it is for sending back photos of distant galaxies, can’t reveal reality independent of cosmological theory.  Theory cannot be verified with complete certainty, which means that important topics like the expansion of the universe and the evolution of galaxies are our own mental constructs; they reflect who we are as observers, not independent reality.

Life After 50: What Arianna Huffington Can Teach Us About Women, Power and the Art of Being Fearless

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 19, 2011


Yes Arianna gave a lot to the material world, now it is the time to give spiritual world. And for that first she must leave this job and be in the real internal world. Not sure she is ready for that or not. Because happiness starts from there.

Life After 50: Plastic Surgery on Your Mind? Before You Do That, Do This

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 31, 2010

Huffington Post By Barbara Hannah

Note: Welcome to the ongoing discussion about life after 50. As regular readers of my posts know, I asked people on Facebook, Twitter and in person (imagine that!) to tell me their most top-of-mind questions and concerns about entering this new phase of life. These articles address those questions head on and, hopefully, will help build an even larger audience so that we can all talk together, regularly, about what matters most. Please read, comment, offer your own ideas and views, and keep coming back!

One of the concerns that pops up a lot is that of dealing with (or not dealing with) our changing bodies and faces as we age, and the feeling that we’re losing our sexuality and slowly becoming invisible to the world. It came up so much — especially among those who are trying to reinvent themselves in the work world — that it clearly had to be addressed and discussed here on The Huffington Post.

Recently, I went to a lecture about women, aging and self-esteem. It was…disconcerting. Read the rest of this entry »
