    Default Gravity Waves

    For a while gravity waves were an hypothesis, but just yesterday we discovered strong evidence of gravity waves.

    And guess where? Not in a deep mine in a pool of mercury, but at the South Pole, looking at the beginning of our universe.

    Who knew?

    Interesting to note that the XXIst century research may verify the predictions of XXth theories


    Not interesting, in fact... but truly EXCITING

    Not me, but it's very cool news. To google!
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Nara is the sister city in Japan of my city, Canberra in Australia. We have a delightful Japanese candlelit festival every year in Canberra.

    So I was wondering about the name of your avatar, Nara.

    How did you arrive at Nara and what does it mean?

    I've discovered it was a japanese city (with an interesting history) later ! How does this festival looks like ? (sorry, it's off thread)
    Nara came from hinduism, Nara is the human side of a deity pair, deeply intertwined with his divine counterpart Narayana.

    Nara is linked to Arjuna and Narayana to Krishna, the manifest on the one hand (mortal, impermanent, metamorphosis of the tangible forms) and the Unmanifest (intangible, permanent, organising forces like... the four fundamental forces of nature for instance) on the other.

    You find such equivalents in other religious symbolisms, according to traditional studies about "initiation" and the sacred science (if you're interested you should look at René Guénon's works, really thrilling )

    So does this have any implications ? No offense. Or is this strictly theoretical ? : It confirms the 20th century theories on the big bang. Rapid expansion at the start of the big bang.

    It could confirm the predictions based on the theory of general relativity developed by Einstein. Spacetime ripples propagating through space like waves on the water surface have never been detected until now...
    And if it's checked (and NOT a premature publication as was the case with the faster-than-light neutrinos ), it could open a door for the ToE (by harmonizing gravity with quantum physics)

    This to me is the most exciting prospect.

    I wonder if gravity waves can be harnessed for energy or communication?
