Okay so like stated im doing research to eventually write a book, i have some questions that im having a hard time finding exact answer for on google, so i figured id come here to ask. 1. Is there a set amount of energy in the universe? Meaning energy cannot be created (or destroyed)? If thats the case, how is it possible that the universe can develop and create new variations if its working on a limited resource. If energy cant be created, then there is no end or death of the universe so it will continue to grow and expand forever, but how can it do that if there is no new energy. 2. How does evolution apply to physics and space, i know evolution is without a doubt proven in biology but i want to know more about how it applies to physics. 3. How can the universe be totally random? Im not sure if everyone in physics shares this but someone told me its accepted in most of science that all reactions are random and deterministic but how can that be possible if there is any organization at all. In a mathematical sense if the odds are truly 100% random than there is just as much chance of failure as there is success but its clear that in biology natural selection contradicts that idea when a species adapts to new environments. If the mutations leading to a species change was totally random there would be no possibility of it being deterministic in any way at all, but its without a doubt evident. 4. what do physics say about consciousness and its influence on matter. 5. what is your opinion on this. (cant post a link, please look up the video "the colors of infinity") I really appreciate all responses, if i speak in a way thats grammatically incorrect i apologize im just trying to learn as much about these topics as possible.
