This is a thread for Mr Tea to blow our minds with the trippiest physics facts

There is matter in the universe, and some of that matter is talking about where the matter came from. That's pretty much the most mind-blowing thing I can think of.

Explain String Theory to us Tea. Do it here.

Nobody can. It's a total con. The best-kept secret in science. They tell you this in the first term's lecture courses in every phys/astro BSc course taught in every university.

More serious answer: in the room right here with me now is a self-contained organic system, made of matter not inherently different from the stuff that makes up a star or a lump of rock, that hasn't been designed by any intelligent agency but already has an information-processing capability far in advance of the most powerful computer and the ability to learn any language that's ever been spoken. And a year ago it was a clump of cells invisible to the naked eye. To go hard Sagan for a moment, that's mind-blowing to me.

Maybe that's why I have no truck with 'mysticism', per se - the real, material universe is mystical in and of itself.

It's only just occurred to me really that Luka is the intellectual Joe Rogan.

He does difficult poetry instead of dumb stand up
He is fascinated by psychedelics and conspiracy theories
He platforms extreme right wingers on his phenomenally popular podcast
