Dudes, this shit is BLOWING MY MIND.
"There is absolutely no reason these constants should be constant," says astronomer Michael Murphy of the University of Cambridge. "These are famous numbers in physics, but we have no real reason for why they are what they are."
The observed differences are small-roughly a few parts in a million-but the implications are huge: The laws of physics would have to be rewritten, not to mention we might need to make room for six more spatial dimensions than the three that we are used to.
Oh my God. They will have to rewrite all the sci-fi movies. Dudes. This is freaking me out. NOTHING IS FOR SURE. Nothing that we hold as true is necessarily true. Up is down. Left is right. Yankees is love.
MY GOD. WHAT IF THE YANKEES END UP BEING AWESOME? WHAT IF EVERYTHING WE HOLD TRUE IS TAKEN AWAY?
This is why I work in the liberal arts. An inaptitude with numbers and a flair for the histrionic.
