Hi. I did a quick search for threads on the block universe and came across one about the implications of the block universe. That was closed though because it was too philosophical. I don't really want to know about the implications of the block universe, I'm just wondering how physicsts generally see it. On the one hand, in the mainstream it seems as though the block universe is painted as a logical necessity of relativity. The impression that is given is that the physical representation of the mathematics of Minkowski spacetime is the block universe. On the other hand though, I've heard some people dismiss it as just a philosophical concept with no testable predictions. Hopefully that is an OK question for here. Please let me know if it isn't. Thanks.
