What is important to Me?

WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU???

Sebastian's insight:

I believe that life itself is one of the most important things to me, i mean live every single moment like your last and enjoy life, with the people you care around you. My goals are to be happy and a good person, and learn more every single day of the rest of my life.

Success to me means to reach that thing that you have been looking for your all life! Money, family, happiness, etc...that thing that makes you feel like good with yourself ( and that is good, and that doens't hurts anyonen in anyway).

Is our universe merely one of billions? Evidence of the existence of 'multiverse' revealed for the first time by cosmic map

Is our universe merely one of billions? Evidence of the existence of 'multiverse' revealed for the first time by cosmic map | The universe and its immensity | Scoop.it

Scientists studying radiation data from the European Space Agency's Planck spacecraft have found unexpected anomalies that they say can only be explained by the existence of other universes and their pull.

 

The first 'hard evidence' that other universes exist has been found by scientists. Cosmologists studying a map of the universe from data gathered by the Planck spacecraft have concluded that it shows anomalies that can only have been caused by the gravitational pull of other universes. The map shows radiation from the Big Bang 13.8billion years ago that is still detectable in the universe - known as cosmic microwave radiation.

 

Scientists had predicted that it should be evenly distributed, but the map shows a stronger concentration in the south half of the sky and a 'cold spot' that cannot be explained by current understanding of physics.

Laura Mersini-Houghton, theoretical physicist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Richard Holman, professor at Carnegie Mellon University, predicted that anomalies in radiation existed and were caused by the pull from other universes in 2005.

 

Now that she has studied the Planck data, Dr. Mersini-Houghton believes her hypothesis has been proven. Her findings imply there could be an infinite number of universes outside of our own. She said: 'These anomalies were caused by other universes pulling on our universe as it formed during the Big Bang. 'They are the first hard evidence for the existence of other universes that we have seen.'

 

Although some scientists remain sceptical about the theory of other universes, these findings may be a step towards changing views on physics. The European Space Agency, which runs the £515million Planck telescope, said: 'Because precision of Planck’s map is so high, it made it possible to reveal some peculiar unexplained features that may well require new physics to be understood.'

 

Cambridge professor of theoretical physics Malcolm Perry told the Sunday Times that the findings could be real evidence of the existence of other universes. While George Efstathiou, professor of astrophysics at the university, told the newspaper: 'Such ideas may sound wacky now, just like the Big Bang theory did three generations ago. But then we got evidence and now it has changed the whole way we think about the universe.'

we don't know what is out there, we can't even see what is out there, but we don't care about that because every single night we see the sky and the starts.

Kevin Coleman's curator insight, June 4, 2013 5:47 PM

Vocabulary: passion, inspire, unique, strengths, values, success

 

From video: How to Find and Do Work You Love (TED.com)

What are your unique strengths?

What are your values?

What are your experiences?  What are you good at?  What are you terrible at? 

What makes you happy? Who/What inspires you?

 

What is the definition of success?

What does he mean, "climbing up the ladder?"  "Most of the people who haven't spent time figuring out what actually matters to them just keep reaching for something that doesn't mean anything to us but we are doing it because everyone said we are supposed to."

 

Now that you have reflected on your strengths, values, and experiences, is there a job or activity that fits well with you?
