I like to think of myself as scientific literate enough that most popular scientists (Bill Nye, Tyson, Brian Green) can’t teach me much. Especially since they are in the fields of science EDUCATION, and not research.
This academic lecture TAUGHT ME ALOT new not in any pop-science documentaries, but goes to confirm the quote from Richard Feynman. "Physics is the ever-expanding horizon of our own ignorance."
When humanity learned to see into deep space, they questioned why we needed God. Now we see regular matter as a mere 4% of the universe, compared to dark energy and dark matter — cosmic forces needed to make the calculations works — which begs the question: why are we even here? Either some freak accident, highly unlikely in a cold and entropic universe. Or we are the the guided result of careful planning of a very active Creator.
Matter itself is unreal. Take your Newton and your deCartes and forget you know anything about what is real. Real is not 3D, real is not gravity, and not anything you can perceive. No more than you perceive the Earth as a flat expanse because it’s curvature is too large for you to imagine.
