    Hi i am lewis pratt and i am 14 yrs old. i am interested in a rage of topics. you can find my threads on politics and astronomy and stuff, but i am mainly discussing theories which i intend to possibly prove or disprove.
    i have been working on time and dimension theories aswell as my latesst, the cell theory.

    Hi Louis.

    I'm curious; what is your work on cell theory?

    He posted elsewhere on the site about this. It seems that he thinks all cells are made of smaller cells. From that, most everything in the universe has a certain "sameness." I could be misinterpreting his words, though.

    the cell theory basiclly is saying that, each cell is made up of another cell/s.
    this could be translated to mean people are cells, and there cells have biological cells, but i mean more that, not only biolgical cells, but also the thing/s that are inside nd make up another thing excluding particles. for instance, the earth is a cell of the solar system, which is a cell of the galaxy, which is a cell of the universe, whioch is a cell of the multiverse. this is still in development, and i would love to here anything you have to say about this. so iNow, you just about had it.

    That's basically just using another word for "the constituents of", not your theory at all. It was believed that atoms are "indivisible" thousands of years ago, we found that this wasn't true by discovering the "constituents of" atoms- protons, electrons, neutrons then quarks, leptons...

    Also, you're assuming that there is definitely a multiverse- which isn't necessarily true.

    And how are you defining 'cell'? It seems you aren't distinguishing between living and non-living, which, as a biologist, is quite distressing for me...

    I'm being dramatic, but seriously...

    Sorry Lewis, but your self-proclaimed 'cell theory' sounds, like I have said in another one of your threads, more belonging in a hippie circle than any sort of scientific community.

    I don't mean to offend.

    This is actually close to what I have been studying for some years now. Arthur Koestler posited a theory which he labeled "holons"; in which each holon is both a discrete system in and of itself, composed of semi-autonomous subsystems, and in turn it is a constituent of a larger system.

    The entire universe is made up of hierarchical, nested systems.

    there has been quite a bit of study done on this idea. I have traced it back at least to Jan Smuts in 1926, in his book "Holism and Evolution". There is a trend toward wholes, and the sub-assemblies (cells, if you will) are the means whereby the universe organized istelf to dissipate energy more efficiently.

    Thus you have organization in the face of entropy. And thus you have information (low-grade energy) which spawns science forums and CNN Headline news and dancing bees and the like, all of which allow the constituent parts to organize themselves more efficiently and thus increase thermodynamic depth (i.e. energy dissipation).

    No, he's talking about a single universe which can be subdivided. Theories regarding the multiverse are usually a bit different.

    I'm fairly sure he was talking about a multiverse:

    He uses the word in the wrong context, was my point - if I had a point, other than to be argumentative.
