    Nassim Haramein has captured my attention with his controversial theories about fractals, black wholes, ancient civilizations etc. It seems that the scientific community doesn't accept harameins reasoning and so he is largely left alone to explore these theories. I have even heard it said that people follow him because he tells them what they want to hear.For those of you who haven't heard of nassim haramein. You can watch a whole seminar on you tube by searching for - nassim haramein 1 45There are 45 videos of 10 minutes each, I know it is long but it is worth listening to if you can keep an open mind and withhold your scientific arguments until he is finished. If you can't watch it all then don't refute his theories.People with knowledge of physics and perhaps other sciences probably won't agree with him because so far we have pretty much what appears to be an accurate understanding so far. Therefore rethinking our scientific methods is a waste of time when we should be pressing forward to further out understanding.I feel obliged to mention that from what I have read in the past, the architecture of modern computer processors is derived from one of two architectural designs that we could have advanced. Both of which would have perhaps brought us to current level of computing technology. Therefore it seems reasonable to say that perhaps our current direction in physics is only one way of furthering our understanding of things. I will be so bold as to say that perhaps the other architecture of computer processing would take us even further than the one we are using.

    Believe me, it is not worth listening to. Seriously. I have read his "paper" - The Schwarzschild Proton. That was not worth reading, either.

    And because his assertions are not only baseless, but have already been disproved by measurement.

    We are talking about the man who claims a comet with twice the mass of Jupiter recently passed through the Solar System, but nobody noticed because it was deflected from its doomsday path by a solar flare. Seriously. He actually claims, with a straight face, that a solar flare can change the course of something twice as massive as Jupiter! And deflect it such that we will notice NONE of the gravitational effects of that comet on any of the other bodies in the Solar System!

    I'm sorry, it is important to keep an open mind, but make sure you don't open it so much that you let your brain fall out.

    This thread belongs in Pseudoscience.

    After being fooled a few times by bullshit on youtube displayed in a clever way so as to make it convincing. I learnt that when listening to a new conspiracy theory or what have you, it is best to watch it but then before you let it sink in as truth, see what wikipedia has to say about it.
