Everything 004 (the machine view)

the machine view

The mainstream Creation Story of the Universe is called The Big Bang and in science it’s largely about mathematics.

In this story, enormous explosions blow more or less discrete bits and pieces adrift in space at great speed and they come together with some violence to form Everything.

In philosophy, this view is said to be mechanistic and reductionist, supporting a view that the Universe is without purpose.

Philosophy is not attracted to purposelessness, but science doesn’t care.

Science is attracted to this story, perhaps because it is helpful in the search for a beautiful little equation that explains Everything, like E-mc2.

But mainstream physics is in growing schism as a completely different story emerges out of quantum mechanics, quantum weirdness, and the fabulous magic of the Zero Point Field.
