Philosophy Wire: Boltzmann brains, Strings, multi-universes


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2013-05-28]: String theory may help us get rid of the annoying Boltzmann brains, i.e. brains that form spontaneously in the... nothingness of space in the Universe. [1] (yes, physics predicts this can happen!) In the beginning we think of the brain as the source of everything. And now we want to show that our brains are unique! If you think you are a selfish animal, nothing stops you from "proving" it.
