The ensuing discussion is very trippy too. Existence as a property. Love it.

this is a great thread, thanks for posting it!

i'm going to have to re-read it, i think, to more fully grasp the concept of things existing beyond what we know as existence. and by concept of things i don't mean, "oh, hey, other universes..." i mean things that are hidden amongst the known. which i suppose is also another universe, in a way, enmeshed with "ours."

It's fucking hard for me to understand. A lot of astrophysicists are asking the questions, and the discussion is continued by other astrophysicists. But it's kind of cool to read the discussion points anyway. It sort of underlines what you and I probably already feel like we know about the physical world. Namely, that it's not as bloody concrete as we've traditionally been led to believe...
