Is time running out for the universe
We all watch Doctor Who and understand from his perspective that the universe is made up of “Timey Whimey Stuff”. Well according to Professors José Senovilla, Marc Mars and Raül Vera of the University of the Basque Country and University of Salamanca, Doctor Who’s assessment may actually be correct. They suggest that there is no such thing as Dark Energy and that the Universe is not accelerating but rather time itself is slowing down.
Time slowing down sound alot like something you would discover on a Doctor Who episode. I am sure we will soon find out it is all an alien conspiracy to destroy the Earth or conquor the universe. More importantly, Doctor Who will save the day and we will forget it even happened. Maybe we already forgot. What was I talking about?
Yes it is a fluid thing, this time stuff. If time is slowing down does this mean that the universe will come to a screeching halt at some point in the future? I find the prospect scary. I suppose you should hop over to the Physical Review D, and read for yourself what Senovilla has to say. I’m going to have a drink and see if I can perceive this cosmic shift with altered perceptions. As it is my head hurts trying to wrap my mind around this mind altering theory.
