FOAM AND ME

What is the most important thing, reason, etc for existence? What is the least important?   … Infinites Infinites are unacceptable as physical descriptions, but our hypothetical observers back at the beginning of time are protected by the principle of cosmic censorship. What this means is that singularities exists only mathematically and not as a physical reality that we can observe or measure. Nature's solution to this problem are things like the event horizon around black holes. Barriers built by relativity to prevent observation of a singularity. http://abyss.uoregon.edu/~js/ast123/lectures/lec17.html     … Objective reality Neils Bohr, one of the founding fathers of quantum physics, said there is no such thing as objective reality.
