The Opening VCR of Diamond Edge got my attention and today’s one of those days when my imagination has the sky as its limit. Here’s my thoughts.
like really, i just loved how this VCR made me use my imagination and suddenly a series of imageries just appeared in my mind. this is really long I’m sorry orz
Happy 800 days with Seventeen! ♡
First off with Vernon who was working with a wood, giving it the shape of a diamond, like how a lyricist that he is gives a song’s melody a shape.
Dokyeom is sewing a diamond through the cloth, like they’re really trying to visualize a perfect diamond the team is trying to produce.
Now, now, I love this. Jun and The8. Diamond dust is used as a coating to protect materials from abrasion, and also as a polish to add shine. Our very own China line got a hefty amount of diamond powder to protect the actual diamond. They’re gonna make it shine. (make it shine)
Jeonghan was among ropes and curtains, and I see it as somehow like a location that is like a backstory of some main thing? Like a hidden place where he’ll be on a lookout for everyone and be his actual observant self who sees everything. he’s so beautiful i cried a lil while making the gif
now my ass is on fire this is my fucking TitanicHoshi and Woozi. The Power Couple. The men behind everything. The duo who’s got those
l i t,
b l a z i n g,
b u r n i n g
ideas for everything. sorry I’m hyped this is the 2/3 of my heart I’m talking about
Look who’s next. General leader S.Coups sprayed paint on the diamond. We sometimes coat things with paint to protect it. yes, Coating a diamond will cover its luster and gleam but a true diamond will always be a diamond no matter what.gdhbjdbcdbjhsj 3/3 now done wait I’ll just catch my breath
5 Reasons We May Live in a Multiverse by Clara Moskowitz, Space.com
1. Infinite Universes
Scientists can’t be sure what the shape of space-time is, but most likely, it’s flat (as opposed to spherical or even donut-shape) and stretches out infinitely. But if space-time goes on forever, then it must start repeating at some point, because there are a finite number of ways particles can be arranged in space and time.
So if you look far enough, you would encounter another version of you — in fact, infinite versions of you. Some of these twins will be doing exactly what you’re doing right now, while others will have worn a different sweater this morning, and still others will have made vastly different career and life choices.
Because the observable universe extends only as far as light has had a chance to get in the 13.7 billion years since the Big Bang (that would be 13.7 billion light-years), the space-time beyond that distance can be considered to be its own separate universe. In this way, a multitude of universes exists next to each other in a giant patchwork quilt of universes.
2. Bubble Universes
In addition to the multiple universes created by infinitely extending space-time, other universes could arise from a theory called “eternal inflation.” Inflation is the notion that the universe expanded rapidly after the Big Bang, in effect inflating like a balloon. Eternal inflation, first proposed by Tufts University cosmologist Alexander Vilenkin, suggests that some pockets of space stop inflating, while other regions continue to inflate, thus giving rise to many isolated “bubble universes.”
Thus, our own universe, where inflation has ended, allowing stars and galaxies to form, is but a small bubble in a vast sea of space, some of which is still inflating, that contains many other bubbles like ours. And in some of these bubble universes, the laws of physics and fundamental constants might be different than in ours, making some universes strange places indeed.
Columbia University physicist Brian Greene describes the idea as the notion that “our universe is one of potentially numerous ‘slabs’ floating in a higher-dimensional space, much like a slice of bread within a grander cosmic loaf,” in his book “The Hidden Reality”.
A further wrinkle on this theory suggests these brane universes aren’t always parallel and out of reach. Sometimes, they might slam into each other, causing repeated Big Bangs that reset the universes over and over again.
3. Parallel Universes
Another idea that arises from string theory is the notion of “braneworlds” — parallel universes that hover just out of reach of our own, proposed by Princeton University’s Paul Steinhardt and Neil Turok of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario, Canada. The idea comes from the possibility of many more dimensions to our world than the three of space and one of time that we know. In addition to our own three-dimensional “brane” of space, other three-dimensional branes may float in a higher-dimensional space.
4. Daughter Universes
The theory of quantum mechanics, which reigns over the tiny world of subatomic particles, suggests another way multiple universes might arise. Quantum mechanics describes the world in terms of probabilities, rather than definite outcomes. And the mathematics of this theory might suggest that all possible outcomes of a situation do occur — in their own separate universes. For example, if you reach a crossroads where you can go right or left, the present universe gives rise to two daughter universes: one in which you go right, and one in which you go left.
“And in each universe, there’s a copy of you witnessing one or the other outcome, thinking — incorrectly — that your reality is the only reality,” Greene wrote in “The Hidden Reality.”
5. Mathematical Universes
Scientists have debated whether mathematics is simply a useful tool for describing the universe, or whether math itself is the fundamental reality, and our observations of the universe are just imperfect perceptions of its true mathematical nature. If the latter is the case, then perhaps the particular mathematical structure that makes up our universe isn’t the only option, and in fact all possible mathematical structures exist as their own separate universes.
“A mathematical structure is something that you can describe in a way that’s completely independent of human baggage,” said Max Tegmark of MIT, who proposed this brain-twistin gidea. “I really believe that there is this universe out there that can exist independently of me that would continue to exist even if there were no humans.”
