Sean has sold me. I'm going to buy his book. I read years ago about Quantum Mechanics, and was intrigued, but didn't think I could understand it without learning high end Mathematics. That would help, but I'm lazy, and Mathematics always frustrated my brain into literally sweating, and feeling sick to my stomach. So I won't go there.

When the Big Bang occurred, the beginnings of the Universe which was composed of Hydrogen---I remember reading that it did not expand in a perfectly circular three dimensional manner in all directions. That it was an uneven expansion. So an observation, or measurement is not needed for the laws of Physics to occur, only if an observer is attempting to predict an event in Physics----am I correct? The old philosophy question, does a branch that falls from a tree make a sound when it hits the ground if no one is there to observe it?

Would there be an alternate universe where we all aligned to focus on science more in the last 500 years and advanced so much that they could reach out or traverse across the multiverse to speak to us?

I'm from Romania and I learned English at a very early age, pre-kindergarden. But I've been watching Joe's podcast for about a decade now and can confidently say that if anyone were to ever need a reason to learn English, this very podcast would be IT.
It's so very worth it.
Thank you, Joe!

Scientists are their own worst enemy, they are generally terrible at explaining things and it's no wonder that people and the media tend to misunderstand what's happening.
Here Carrol is talking like there actually are many worlds which is bullshit, it's not even a theory, it's philosophic musings at best.and I it's not science.

There is a very reasonable explanation to the Fermi paradox. The reason why we haven't heard from aliens is because we don't live on an actual planet called Earth. It only APPEARS as though we do.
We live inside a giant, hyper-realistic holodeck.. and this is IRREFUTABLE because of Fine Tuning.
Because of Fine Tuning it is statistically billions of times more likely that our universe is NOT the first one to produce super intelligent life but it has already happened and that intelligent life has created a holodeck, inputted the constants for our universe and created our environment inside the holodeck, so realistic that it fools evolution and we arrive some 3 billion years later.
That is why everything outside of our conscious perception is a wave and not a particle as revealed by the double slit experiment. As Einstein alluded to, it does actually only exist when we behold it.
Therfore aliens don't exist.. or they might exist but on another level of this holodeck structure and they evolved the same way we did.
This universe is still real but it is not the main reality. It is a sub-reality of the main reality.
Sean and the entire scientific community would have to agree with this theory otherwise they should be considered fools 😲😲😲

How complete an understanding we can have of things might be relative to our ability to increase the aptitude of our objective view. Sure someone conceived the smart phone, engineers schematicised it and tech workers built them but it took centuries for certain individuals to develop the necessary knowledge and means to realize it. Yet still to actually gain an understanding of how nature operates, we just accept that it is and it may never be in the cards for us to know. If a seed is planted in soil and a flower grows we just accept that this is the reasonable outcome and never question its existence as a result. The parameters of our limits may be deterred by our species based isolation. What I'm trying to say is the relative lens we see the world through as Carroll explains when he describes the 'Epistemic Approach' to quantum mechanics may seem like a cop out but it is like making a truce with the universe and accepting these limitations as the best understanding we can come to.

I disagree, quantum mechanics is visible on a large scale. Look at the North Korean football team. They played games during the World Cup which we think they lost, but in North Korea they said they won.... so clearly science is wrong as the big yelling lady on the state news looks very trustworthy.

At 25:00 Where Joe refuses to listen because the bowl he smoked right before airtime demands he go down the rabbit hole Carroll warns him not to.
Carroll - "You should not behave any differently in this world because of the notion that there are many worlds being constantly created."
Joe "Yeah, but do you think of each choice you make possibly changing everything about the world you exist in?"
I knew from this moment that Joe may have skimmed Sean's book, but did not read it all OR that he read may have read it all, but was either too stoned or is not intelligent enough to understand it. To his credit he says, "That's where my brain broke." But I think it's more a case that the temptation to contemplate the idea that every decision we make splits out spacetimelines just too attractively trippy for an old stoner to resist.

I agree with all that and I am excited to see the progress in this field in the future, but there is no difference between so called woo woo and regular science or even religion. All of them have 'strange' assumptions from the point of regular experience. Don't call woo woo all what is not according to the mainstream science. You are in the woo woo field only if you don't question current state. Otherwise, approaches are and should be different, and they are all valid. Final conclusion will be the same on the end. Masters don't discuss fundamental truth, they agree.

I listened to every word of this podcast, and understood more than I thought I might. Now it’s over, I realise that I’m non the wiser.
Hate when Joe keeps just saying the same thing over and over. "The idea that there are an infinite number of you making these choices." Yes, you said that already. What else do you want him to say about it?

The double-slit experiment always fascinated me, the only solution is that the electron has awareness. Then I read Kabbalistic teachings that said the 'Aur' is in everything-that is a ray that gives everything energy-that connects everything, then you have the solution to the problem. The main question then is, how can we detect this dense field that shines thru everything in the universe.

I think physics is a means to understand the world around us, but spirituality is the description of what it all means. Both are true, but describe two different things. Instead of disparaging one another, the two fields should work in unison.

So my thinking is... forgetting the sun, forgetting everything other than the earth, what's the entire pattern of use moving through the universe? I try and think of it all in my head but I just can't imagine it fully, but I think it would be something like a helix, spinning in a helix spinning in another helix?

It seems like all it really says is that reality is conscious and our consciousness and reality effect one another as waves rather than simple cause and effect from and to specific points. We are waves of a sea of energy. It would be nice if we could just stop trying to destroy one another.

The world would be an entirely better place if people put the time, work and effort in and had an open mind. Period.
Doesn't just apply to understanding Quantum Mechanics.
Fabio Rock
Fabio Rock - Month ago
I found this interview to be very interesting although i disagree a lot from the way Sean approach the questions risen by Joe. if he had a more philosophical perspective he would even help himself a lot to clear his thoughts and apply this to his scientific analysis to the real world. i observe that hermetic laws has helped a lot to science find applications to quantum realm.
If everything is mental consequently any object or being capable to have consciousness (even if remotely conscious, such as a camera) can interfere as an observer and then change the possibilities in a quantum system. Even a rock is interacting to a quantum system but the limitations of its own existence will set the ways it can be affected by such laws. We as humans can change in a much more complex way the reality as an observer even though most humans are unaware of their power. in short i would really love to have these ways of hermetic approach applied to the very interesting questions made by Joe.

MRI machines work in this fashion. They surround a person in a magnetic field, causing the atoms to align in the same direction, the machine then creates a model based on what it has observed, unlike x-rays, which send radioactive isotopes through a body, burning the image into a silver nitrate slide. It's insane what we can do with quantum mechanics.

I felt that part when Joe said his brain broke. I really reflected on that whole theory. I understand why it can be possible but cant wrap my mind around the fact HOW. How can two physical universes exist without boundaries? If so whats in the "space' between them? Why CANT you communicate with another universe if it did exist? He said "copies" of a universe, but wouldn't that apply that there was at one point an original?
Partially Examined Kubrick
We don't know the point of origin because the origin of THIS universe is just a conjecture - all cosmo models are unclear how the universe began look it up
I imagine how this guy is explaining his theory like a tree, the tree will grow creating branches then the branches will grow from other branches and so on. This could be explained in the same way as we make choices in life and always changing direction to grow as a human. Maybe the way he talks about particles being unpredictable to measure is because the particle chooses to go in a direction that is more suitable/natural for itself just like how the roots and branches grow for a tree.

I really got that at the end there man, good analogy really. Although trees are good analogies for loads of things, neurons, hierarchies, life paths and choices :p offspring "didnt fall far from the tree". I think it is because life has a fractal and highly mathematical nature

What do you guys think... Will we be able to understand higher dimensions? Or, even without fully understanding them, will we be able to use at least one of them? Of course we will be forever stuck in 3d world, but using like some sort of a wormhole, and I'm not saying anything about cosmic travels and stuff, think of a simple data transfer through an other dimension. Well, not really simple, but you've got the point
