To penetrate the secrets of the universe, the human brain is not enough — to such conclusion, Lord Rees, the leader of the British scientists
In the UK, the Royal Society — is, in fact, the National Academy of Sciences. So its president astrophysicist Martin Rees (Martin John Rees), he also, in combination, the Astronomer Royal, in an interview with Daily Mail questioned the intellectual abilities of human civilization.
Like, we do not understand the laws of the universe. And do not ever find out, how did the universe and what to expect. A hypothesis, for example, the Big Bang, allegedly gave birth the world around us, and that along with our universe may be many others, and remain unproven assumptions.
— Sure, there is the whole explanation, — says Lord Rees, — but no such geniuses who could understand them. The human mind is limited. And it has reached its limit.
Indeed, physicists and cosmologists trying to understand and explain the structure of the universe, in vain for decades to develop a theory of everything. Or so-called unified theory. On that one Albert Einstein. But did not complete. Punished finish later generations. But they are baffled.
An established the so-called standard model of the universe implies that there exist four fundamental forces: electromagnetic, strong force, which is available in the atomic nucleus, the weak, which controls radioactive decay, and gravity. Today's scientists were able to link the first three forces. A fourth — gravity — to attach to the theory does not work. As well as to understand its nature.
— We are as far from understanding the microstructure of the vacuum, and how the fish in the aquarium, which is not aware how to construct an environment in which they live — literally brings the bitter truth of the Astronomer Royal.
— I, for example, there is reason to suspect that space — cell structure — continues Lord Fig. — And for each cell — in the trillions of trillions of times smaller than the atom. But to prove or disprove it or to understand how this construction works, we can not. The problem — too complicated, prohibitive — for the human mind. As the theory of relativity to monkeys.
As a result, the Lord concludes, saying, I believe that unified theory exists in principle. But to create it, no human mind is not enough. In addition, all applicants for such authorship certainly mistaken.
As for the Lord of the universe is difficult to object. How it all began — a mystery beyond human comprehension. In the stories of scientists about the Big Bang, some gryanuvshy of tiny particles that can not believe. Still, as in divine intervention. Strangely, even, that the proponents of these ideas argue over whose is better. Both unprovable. Good reasons not. Perhaps because of the limitations of the mind — whether those who are trying to prove whether those who heed.
But after more modest goals are solved. And the lack of brains. For example, in such as Grigory Perelman. In fact proved the Poincaré conjecture, which is 100 years, no one resisted. Suddenly, like this — "grain by grain" and to Theory of Everything can be reached? Or will we wait for someone who is several orders of magnitude more intelligent than us?
