The Story: Is the universe becoming more complex or chaotic?
In our short lifetimes, it’s difficult to see what the long-term trends of the universe are. Physicists guess that the universe is slowly dying, as energy gets used up or is transmuted into more and more stable forms. If that’s the case, where do we fit into the mix? Are our lives just a part of this move towards an equilibrium state, or is the growing complexity of the human race and its machines just a freak occurrence, an anomaly?
Kurt’s conversation with Andrew Levine (a.k.a. Andrarchy) continues as we discuss the concepts of his crowdsourced book, the general trends of the universe, artificial intelligence and whether the Big Bang theory is a reality, a fairy story cooked up by bored scientists, or just an awful TV show.
