The Multiverse


Harper’s Magazine – The accidental universe: Science's crisis of faith  - by Alan P. Lightman

(And on a much lesser, absurdly trivial note:  can we see a show of hands – again – from all of the scientists, the economists, the politicians, the general mass of people, who persist with the belief that they’re “on the right side of history” and the cause and implications of global warming / climate change / extreme weather events are known, measurable, controllable and reversible – and it's all true because because there’s a scientific “consensus”. )
