In ‘Nature’: A nanoscale discovery with big implications | William & Mary William and Mary and the U of Michigan are usually small potatoes when it comes to fundamental physics research, but they will go down in history. You can remember these two guys names. They've discovered that the laws of physics obey Goldilocks, as well as Murphy, explaining why Relativity and thermodynamics share the same mathematics, as simply the result of 42 being as good an explanation as anyone is ever going to get. Which means the laws of nature reflect our mortal fallibility and the proximity of the observer determines the lowest possible energy state. In other words, its just as meaningful to say nothing can ever be too hot or too cold, too big or too small, etc. because a context without any significant content is an oxymoron. Heat then represents how space and time exchange identities in ways that are humanly comprehensible. We perceive the arrow of time and causal universe, because a singularity makes almost no sense to us whatsoever. To some extent, our future normalizes our past, just as our past helps to determine our future. An examination of a Mott transition from quantum mechanical to classical produced unexpected results that baffled the experimentalists. The results defied all their theories and calculations, implying that the big bang was neither too hot nor too cold, but just right. The scientists expressed their dismay and suggested it could be years before anyone could figure out how a Goldilocks universe works. Basically, they've just shown how to prove yin-yang push-pull dynamics rule the universe.
