Naked Brains Floating In Space!

| 2 Comments

I’ve been meaning to post about the Boltzmann’s Brain problem for a while now, but this is as good a time as any. The basic issue is that under some cosmological models, it’s far more likely that we’re just disembodied brains floating in the vacuum of interstellar space than not.

Trippy, huh? And of course, the question is, how do we know that we’re not?

Some of those models also support:
* The Cosmic Butterfly's dreams
* The Flying Spaghetti Monster
* The indisputable fact that Dark Matter is peanut butter

About peanut butter....
To be precise, Dark Matter is actually chunky peanut butter...the observable universe is the chunks, DM is the goop that holds the chunks together.
