|Boltzmann brain hypothesis discussed in a Dilbert comic strip, April 27, 2009. |
|Boltzmann's brain fluctuation diagram by American physicist Sean Carroll. |
“Boltzmann worried that if our world really emerged from a random fluctuation, then a strong prediction is made that we exist in the midst of utter chaos. The fact that instead we live in a universe billions of light-years in size which is extremely quite an un-chaotic, and that seems to have room for not just our cozy planet, but many more like it seems to be in blatant contradiction to these predictions.”
Boltzmann Brains (BB) = hypothetical brains resulting from thermal or vacuum fluctuations.
