What's the next scientific paradigm?

  1. Feb 22, 2004 #1
    What do you predict will be the next overarching, revolutionary saltation (paradigm) in the philosophy or theory of science?

    booda sounds so cool when u say it in your head..
    booda!
    booda!
    booda!

    anti-matter, once it is used as an energy source i think this will cause major leaps in our capability to preform scientific experiments...

    and u know the experiments on creating matter out of energy? i think this will change alot... cause this sort of scientific discovery is godlike...

    The discovery of the ToE.

    More directly, the discovery that M-Theory is the ToE after all :wink:.

    Theory of Everything; perhaps M-Theory or quantum gravity.

    whats the M stand for? this is a theory that explains everything?

    The significance of "M" is still Moot, but some claim it is an upside-down "W" for Edward Witten, the superstring genius out of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton.

    One in which consciousness exists and science faces up to the metaphysical quicksand on which it is built.

    No. wait a minute, that's what I hope, not what I expect. What I expect is no change.

    Or both .

    Witten himself said that the word either stands for "Matrix", "Mother", or "Membrane", depending on preference, IIRC.

    The nature of "Dark Energy", and the realisation that our present ideas about a Theory of Everything must be supplemented by a Theory of Everything Else.

    I like that. 'A Theory of Everything Else'. Lol.
