- A question related to protons.
Is it possible to create new protons, or is this ruled out by currently know physical laws?
Where is the evidence that protons decay?So, far in the future, some possible civilization could postpone their death from proton decay, by creating NEW protons if they had very advanced technology and a lot of energy?
I don't quite understand this. Even if we can establish that protons do decay, let's examine what we ALREADY know:Of course they'd eventually run out of energy and die anyway, but, in such a hypothetical scenario, NEW proton creation could be coupled with creating new atoms of some kind and extend their life [with A LOT of very sci-fi-ish engineering, of course].
PS I am just genuinely curious, and am not employed writing any science fiction or anything like that.
