Throwback Thursday: The Fundamental Constants Behind Our Universe
Ethan Siegel

One amazing property of the Universe

Emergence is a property of the Universe that permits it to evolve. Without it probably the Universe wouldn’t have even developed atomic particles, not to mention stars and everything else leading to intelligence. To me, the property of Emergence, together with energy, is what starts everything including space and time. Unfortunately I’m quite far from havig the math to at least formalize a theory, but the much ignored Emergence is the crucial factor in creating a unverse that is ineteresting. Only problem is that nobody has a theory of emergence yet and even some quite respected scientists, such as Stuart Kauffman, think it may no be possible to come up with one.
