The Origins of Space Time

I guess theoretical physics is supposed to extrapolate and make these types of conjectures. Still, it would be nice if there are already experimental indications that they are on the right path, rather than just continue on blindly.

This is a rather interesting article from Nature on some very fundamental issues in physics, and the theories (yes, there are many of them, which is common when there are no experimental evidence to weed them out) that claim to describe them. Not sure how long the article is available for free online, so read it while you can.

Thanks for pointing it out Zapper. I'm surprised Nature ran that. It's more like the kind of thing you'd expect to see in New Scientist. Extremely speculative hypothetical woo.
