"New evidence supports the idea that we live in an area of the universe that is "just right" for our existence. The controversial finding comes from an observation that one of the constants of nature appears to be different in different parts of the cosmos."

I think of the universe as being like a combination of an immense planetarium within something like a holodeck that's depicted on Star Trek.

With the concept of the universe being like a holographic program, one should be able to look at key events in history & tap into extra information. Thus, coincidence & synchronicity can help to reveal more data, especially for big terms like, Titanic, Hindenburg & things connected to the #911.

If programming the Universe, I would never #define constants.
But then again I'd only use variables that were easy to work with, integers.
I suppose if I had to I might use float variables, but nothing more precise (and complicated) than that, please. d'oh!

I liked this article a lot - it certainly gives one pause to think. If indeed, parameters of the universe are not fixed, much in the same way that the duration of a day or the diameter of earth's orbit is not fixed, then there may be a number of reasons:

1. There is a much more complex set of laws that governs our universe; e.g. meta-laws, or laws that describe our laws. That should keep scientists busy for centuries.

2. Physical laws are subject to observation like everything else, and are just represented by a "wave function" of probable values. This allows the possibility of tuning our past through observation.

3. The laws are part of a program construct and are not fixed in the program because they simply don't need to be. Why they are what they are and were what they were is a mystery designed to keep us peeling back the onion.

Part of the tragedy of history is the loss of data, witnesses & memories of various accounts can be lost. Throughout earth-time, people, books & other data have been burned due to intolerance or ignorance. Even websites disappear or have some deleted & altered sections.
If more people can observe & take notes of big & small events in their life, then share & compare these accounts with others, it can help to retain more accuracy of data.
If more pertinent articles & parts of websites are stored, that also helps to preserve data. Websites crash all the time or mysteriously disappear. If there ever is another solar storm as big as the one in 1859, it could be the equivalent of one hell of an EMP shutdown for most of earths electronics & satellites. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_pulse#E3

"Scientists are beginning to understand a historic solar storm in 1859. One day, they say, it could happen again."
http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2003/23oct_superstorm/

"In 1989, an electromagnetic storm disrupted power throughout most of Quebec and caused aurorae as far south as Texas. Large and potentially damaging geomagnetic storms are predicted for the height of the next solar sunspot cycle during the 2012-2013 period." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomagnetic_storms

The amount of data-loss would be tremendous & could make the old Y2K concerns seem like a picnic.

This civilization sure doesn't need any technological setbacks, especially a new dark age, so hopefully a CME or solar storm doesn't shut almost everything down.
Whether in 2 or 3 years, or a few centuries from now.

Didn't my grade school science teacher, Mr. Planck, say something about the Laws Of Physics always changing?
Crazy stuff. Think
I'm happy you liked the article. :)

I'll bet all this information was in a book or scroll in The Library Of Alexandria.
