I don't get it......Why is it that when a vulnerability is found in FOSS, you people all come out and mock it while ignoring all the incompetence of proprietary software?
I see that this is your first visit to Slashdot. Welcome!
The beginning of the universe does not need to conserve energy, but things as far as we can tell are conserved after that.
As far as I understand it, we're trying to figure out what's happening on the edge of the expanding universe, but we have no idea what is outside of our universe that it is expanding into. It could be something that doesn't follow any of our laws of physics and is inexplicable, all we know is that it not this universe. If we know our Universe started in NotThisUniverse, and you mention the beginning of the universe does not need to conserve energy, then doesn't it follow that energy came from NotThisUniverse? And possibly, once here our laws of physics allowed for the creation of a stable universe? If so, could we explain the vacuum energy as saying that the expansion of our universe into NotThisUniverse is allowing the conversion/transfer/creation of energy from NotThisUniverse "stuff" to our universe stuff?
The fallacy of the false dick-otomy strikes again
Considering how the thread started, I FTFY
