Can Humanity Ever Comprehend Time & The Aging Process?
Cosmology is broken or needs a new model of understanding.
With the wide ranging term "Quantum" creeping in everywhere the sciences are struggling to get a grip.
The reality seems to me to be that humanity just lacks the cognitive capability to ever understand "Time" and "Space".
It has been said recently by some that Time & Space are no longer fundamental. For some this is a bridge to far.
For the average joe its a no brainer.
As a person I can conceive of the immense complexity of the creation around us. It does not take a PHD for me to understand that the informed opinions of "Physicists " are just that informed but far from conclusive or concrete.
The other taboo subject that is gaining traction is that "Consciousness" is fundamental. For those of us without a bias from science we see a little bite farther down the road.
The Physics of Time, Entropy, and Immortality | Sabine Hossenfelder
Video from Big Think
"Why does time move forward but not backward? Physicist Sabine Hossenfelder explains.
Why does time move in only one direction? This still-unsolved question was posed in 1927 by the British astrophysicist Arthur Eddington, and the concept came to be known as the arrow of time. As theoretical physicist @SabineHossenfelder explains, there's a longstanding mystery in the foundations of physics: If we look at the laws for microscopic constituents, like elementary particles, they work the same way forward in time as they do backward in time. But the same does not hold true on macroscopic scales. In this Big Think video, Hossenfelder dives into this mystery and explores how it has captivated the minds of so many scientists and science fiction writers. 0:00 The arrow of time 1:14 Why doesn’t anyone get younger? 2:39 Can we stop human aging with entropy control? 4:01 Is ‘maximum entropy’ how the universe will end?

The Shaky Foundations of Cosmology - Bjørn Ekeberg
Video from The Institute of Art and Ideas
"An interview with Bjørn Ekeberg about the cracks in cosmology. From early scientists being labelled "natural philosophers" to Isaac Newton's interest in the occult, metaphysics of varying degrees has played a part in our sciences - especially in theoretical physics. However, as science and philosophy both became more specialised, they split apart. Does science need philosophy, and vice versa? Join us in this interview with Bjørn Ekeberg, a renowned philosopher of science and author, as he shares his journey discovering the historical union between science and the metaphysical. #cosmology#sciencevsmetaphysics#philosophyofscience00:11 What first sparked your interest in cosmology? 02:05 What’s the relationship between philosophy and science? 05:30 What is the Standard Model of Cosmology? 09:00 Are your critiques scientific or philosophical? 14:56 How can we tell if data is challenging the laws of nature? 16:40 In the future, how will we understand our place in the universe? 18:18 Would you merge your creative work with your interest in cosmology? 19:23 Does philosophical thinking inform your creative writing? Bjørn Ekeberg is a philosopher of science whose main interests lie in the limits of scientific knowledge. He is also author of Metaphysical Experiments: Physics and the Invention of the Universe." from video introduction
