Do Singularities Exist In Nature?

Posted by Peter Rudin on 13. May 2022 in News

Singularity as a term is used in many contexts, including within mathematics. The word also appears in speculation about artificial intelligence, such as to describe the day when machines will become more intelligent than humans.

The term singularity that is used in our mathematical models leads to a new understanding of physics. However, matter itself is not a solid thing. It is made of molecules, and it takes quantum physics to explain why Newton’s Law of Gravity does not apply. But somehow – and we do not know how-  nature finds a way to get around it, at least for now.

Hence, we should embrace a mindset that it is okay not to find answers to all of our questions. After all, not knowing is what propels us to keep on looking.
