Ask An Artsci!

Dear Annie,

Are there physical phenomena, such as wave function collapse or black holes, which irrevocably destroy information about their prior states?

Dear Smaar Taas

Well, first we must ask ourselves – are there even physical phenomena? Given that we don’t really exist, the answer is clearly no. Also, I think I saw something on the news about black holes, and waves? It gave me a headache when I tried to read it. So yeah, I think it irrevocably destroyed information that I used to have. I’d elaborate, but I don’t really remember what I lost well enough to talk about it. It’s confusing.


Hey Annie!

I got a question for you, Ms. Artsci, if you think you’re tough enough to handle it. Why is the distant universe so homogeneous when the Big Bang theory seems to predict larger measurable anisotropies of the night sky than those observed? If you’re so smart, why don’t you answer that one! Unless you’re just one of those pretend smart people that can use big words and uses Google to sound smart!

Dear Will,

I love Big Bang Theory!
