Much ado about nothing as Lawrence Krauss says here?

Or worth the debate as Drs. Guth, Dyson, and Linde seem to think?

(Programmed reality seems to say that its not an issue. Our universe will never last long enough for it to matter. Or?)

At the risk of becoming the next tortured musings about the metaphysical;

The Boltzmann Brain is about a low-entropy world where we are nothing more than random fluctuations in a higher-entropy universe. If you believe Boltzmann, then there is a greater likelihood of finding consciousness in a random inanimate object, like a rock for example, than our current level of organization, having many self-aware entities. This is the paradox of our existence.

Just check out the Horton Hears a Who movie. In that story, the people on the "who world" didn't believe they were sitting on an elephant's nose. And the jungle animals all around Horton refused to believe that people existed on the dust speck.

Another Hollywood example of this (isn't science fiction great?)is: In the movie Men in Black, throughout the movie the writers make a play on words that the "universe is on Orion's belt," which is a very cryptic statement because Orion's belt is just a small grouping of stars in Greek mythology. It wasn't until the end of the movie we find out that Orion is the name of a cat and the universe is contained in a small jewel on the cat's collar (belt). What I call the "Horton hears a Who" theory is just that the universe (our duality) can exist in any size. Any size is relative to an observer anyway.

Most of us have read your book Jim -- and programmed reality would suggest that either the program is just ours and it runs individually for us, or that the universal program of which we are all a part is some big thing, a smart program thing to be exact, rather than just a bunch of galaxies sitting in empty space.

Yet, I would suggest that the trick is to look to the universe more from within. In considering "causation" of the universe, the modern metaphysical theorists do not feel the need to look back so far in time and instead look to "causation" in every moment of time. After all, it is just as big of a miracle to have created the first moment of time as it is to have created each moment of time. Until we can understand how this moment came to be, can we then even begin to look to the first moment.

In all cosmological studies and experimentation, time can only be removed in one of two ways: 1) do not conduct the experiment (observation) at all (i.e. no duration, no time) or 2) conduct the observation forever, or substantially long enough that stability of the outcome has been reached. When we think of existence as space-time rather than just space-matter-energy, we begin to see why there must be some quantum time as well as quantum matter or energy.

You also handled this topic very well in your book with the idea of 10^-43 seconds being the smallest amount of time that has any meaning in our universe.

Then when you take into consideration JDLaw's lightspeed laws:
1. The observed speed of light in any reference frame is approximately 299,792,458 meters per second.
2. No mass, energy, or quantum particle can be observed directly by another mass energy or quantum particle that has a greater relative difference in velocity than 299,792,458 meters per second.
3. Where two masses, energies, or quantum particles are moving, spinning, or vibrating with velocities separated by greater than 299,792,458 meters per second relative to each other they must exist in a different quantum realities. However, a third mass, energy or quantum particle whose relative velocity is between the two may observe them both.
4. This duality is finite, but the number of dualities is infinite.
5. There is another reference frame in some reality that exists somewhere or sometime where this reference frame, you are in right now, is moving at the speed of light relative to that other reference frame.

You can see why spooky action at a distance (I call FTL commutatability) makes programmed reality the only plausible explanation.
