On creating worlds or cosmologies that serve as the basis for stories. :-)
 
I just wrote this in response to a quote about the existence of God made by a Greek philosopher. I thought it might be of interest for discussion here:

Believe it or not, I taught this in a computer game design course in our segment on world building. People regularly build a metaphysical cosmology into their stories.

In Western society we often assume that if a god isn't loving, then there is no god. That if we are unable to manipulate a god's actions, then there is no god. If a god seems uninvolved in creation, then there is no god. Those are all big asumptions.

A god can be benevolent, malevolent, or uninvolved. There could be multiple gods, a single god, or no god. A god can be outside of a universe or be the universe itself. A god can be static or evolving. If a being is that large and that complex, why would it take sides (good plot point)? If a being is that large and that complex, how can we assume that we know much of anything about it?

You can rebel against what others have said about such a being and how they choose to enforce their views, but that says nothing about what a god is or can be. It's like two people arguing over what a playtpus is like without ever having seen one or been to Australia. One might have a better idea, but you have no way of knowing this until you actually see the platypus. For a long time English scientists thought the platypus was a myth, because they had never seen a live one. They thought it was a trick of taxidermy.

I'm not saying this means there is a god, just that the question is more complex than most people realise. Thinking about it makes for more interesting computer game worlds.

Absolutely fascinating and certainly the questions whose answers will lead to the long overdue next great leaps in physics.
 
The paradoxes that threaten to tear modern cosmology apart. The visible matter of the universe of which we can actually observe is only a 0.5% piece of the predicted matter content of the universe. The observed value of the cosmological constant is about 120 orders of magnitude smaller than what the theory predicts from the energy density of the physical vacuum.

There are discrepancies between observed and predicted galaxy density profiles. The number of number of observed satellite galaxies is too small compared to what theory predicts. A tight correlation between dark matter and baryons in galaxies has been observed which is not predicted by any theory.

Observations from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the Two-degree-Field Galaxy Redshift Survey do not fit the theory of large scale galaxy formation. Observations of baryon acoustic oscillations in structures in the local Universe don't agree with what theory predicts. In the very deep galaxy surveys, quasi-stellar objects structures with sizes of about 500 megaparcecs (i.e. huge) exist, but are not predicted by any theory. In the cosmic microwave background radiation, there are problems with quadrupole and octopole observations disagreeing with what is predicted by theory, but I have no idea what CMBR quadrupole and octopole observations are about, so can't say anything about that. Anyway, theory fails to match observation of the universe at the largest scales.

The linear Hubble law implies homogeneity, but modern observations show the universe is fractal at large scales and inhomogeneous.

In General Relativity there are no concepts of energy-momentum density or energy quanta of the gravitational field, though field energy exists for all other fundamental physical interactions.

The concept of space expansion requires continuous creation of vacuum, which violates the principle of conservation of energy. Physical objects like particles, atoms, stars and galaxies do not expand, so inside these objects there is no space creation, so the creation of space must be a cosmological phenomenon which has not been tested yet in any physical laboratory. The cosmological redshift in expanding space is not the Doppler effect, but it is a new physical phenomenon which has never been tested in any lab.
Revolutions in science often come from the study of seemingly unresolvable paradoxes. An intense focus on these paradoxe…
