The 5 Most Mind-Blowing Things That Science Has Discovered About Reality

The world is a beautiful place. We all have our own perception of it, but we can't deny that there are some things in the universe that will always be unknown to us. Scientists have been making breakthroughs and discovering new information about reality since the beginning of time. Here are five mind-blowing discoveries from science:

1. Quantum physics has proven time and again that almost every decision we make is entirely random;

However, there are still very few "decisive" moments in history where the world dramatically changes course due to an event having no determining path beforehand. Locally, this can be seen through the assassination of JFK, where many people believe there were forces at work that caused him to be killed.

2. Dark matter and dark energy are 95% of the universe :

The universe is made up of 27% baryonic matter, 4% neutrinos, and 68% dark matter/dark energy. The reason why scientists are so obsessed with finding "dark" things is because this means that they have managed to observe large portions of the universe that were previously unknown to them.

3. A human being can survive without a significant amount of their brain:

There have been countless stories about people who have survived a brain injury that has caused the loss of a large portion of their brain. In one case, it was reported that a man had survived with just 10% of his brain intact. Read more..

4. The universe is not infinite:

Although this recent discovery does not change our perception on what we currently know as reality, scientists now believe that there exists an asymptotic boundary to the distribution of galaxies in the universe. This means that even though infinity may be defined as unlimited or endless, there is some point at which space time curves back on itself and repeats itself infinitely.

5. Light bends matter:

This is one of the most famous and mind-blowing discoveries in the history of science. Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity proposed that gravity is not a force, but instead a curvature in the space-time continuum. This means that large masses can cause light to bend around them, which is what we see as the sun setting.

These are just five examples of the amazing things that science has discovered about reality. It's always fascinating to explore the unknown and learn new information about our universe. As scientists continue making new discoveries, we will undoubtedly gain a greater understanding of the world around us. Thank you for reading!

Science is both scary and amazing. We may discover something creepy or against humanity. Bottom line is we should be responsible in whatever we do in life.

The concept of time travel is something that has always caught my interest unfortunately science still hasn't found a way to achieve this feat. Perhaps the grandfather paradox according to Stephen Hawkins actually holds hence our inability to discover time travel except on an atomic scale.

In the end I'm beginning to suspect that the chronological protection conjecture is actually valid hence time travel will never be discovered because the laws of physics have ensured it doesn't hold.

Am not sure you should say never about time travel because most sci-fiction movie prediction had turned out to be true. I believe that there is a chance of discovering time travel in the future.

I find the concept of time travel to be very interesting and I enjoy it in most movies. Although science has not yet developed a way to time travel (yet) I'm still hoping to see the day when I could travel to any moment and still be alive.

I understand you based on the approach of sci-fi and how things katerngit invented based on them. But indications have shown from the laws of physics that time travel will never be achieved.

Faster than light travel may be achieved; travel through interdimensional vortex yes, but the possibility of time travel has already been cancelled out by the chronological protection conjecture.

After reading this article, I'm wondering what next big discovery could be coming. Thanks for this article

What we call infinite is what science is actually trying to prove to be definite. Even the most impossible theories have been proven very true and possible especially the one about gravitation not been a force but a curvature in space to time continuum. I totally agree with their theories and not everyone scientists are ready to accept those facts.

Thank you very much sir. I think that was very helpful to me and I really appreciate your time to read my article 🙂.

I love science facts like this! Been reading up on what will happen to our universe over time, super interesting

I was hoping science would discover that we were stuck in the matrix and our entire lives is nothing but a dream which we can't wait to wake up from. Maybe Quantum physicists still have a lot of truth to uncover.
