Lee Smolin is an astrophysicist who studied string theory and moved on to explore other avenues, such as loop quantum gravity, of reaching a unified field theory. A unifying field theory is the holy grail of physics. It’s where the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics no longer conflicts and the mathematics perfectly intertwine. Thus … Continue reading Cosmological Natural Selection: Black Holes As A Vehicle Of Cosmic Evolution?
