Untitled[edit]

Leonard Susskind has written a book. The Cosmic Landscape : String Theory and the Illusion of Intelligent Design [Spamazon link removed]

The h-index is bunk. Citations are often mundane. Know it!

Heh. Spoken like someone who hasn't been cited much.

Questionable Source[edit]

Hi, I don't know the appropriate syntax for noting this directly on the page, but the URL used citation #24 is not very reputable: http://www.rinf.com/news/dec05/string.html There also does not seem to be another source given in the page that can confirm the Murray Gell-Mann elevator episode.

Name[edit]

I just watched a 2013 Santa Fe Institute talk Dr Susskind gave on Time and his colleague and friend for 40 years noted that he was named after Leonardo Da Vinci and that his first name is Leonardo, not Leonard. In that introduction, it was claimed that one of his popular books won him a prize, fwiw.71.29.171.136 (talk) 09:51, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Bullshitonium della crappetto![edit]

Bullshitonium della crappetto! At 6:00 you show us a half black hole which doesn't exist in nature. The actual black hole is a self-homologous double Kerr ring, an Einstein Rosen bridge which isn't a long wormhole but compressed as a disk with two tori having almost all the systemic data. Long wormholes DON'T exist, instead only double disks with entangled polar geysers. Your bullshitonium della crappetto isn't able to generate the PERFECT (if not disturbed) mirror geysers we observe in nature. There is only one form of black hole, the self-homologous double Kerr ring which is a standard Einstein Rosen bridge simply locked and compressed as a disc. The Einstein Rosen bridge wants to elongate the distance (which is relatively small) between the two mirror discs but it cunt.... sorry .... it can't, and that energy is wasted on the overall disc and the geysers. I don't simply know it, I FUCKING know it... and fucking is hard when you mess with black holes, so trust me because I know better, and I've learnt it the bad way (via thought). The double Kerr tori is a mirror turbulence in space - the entangled tori create friction among themselves because they rotate in opposite directions. The inside part of the tori also loops with the external so we don't have only opposite rotations in relation to the center of the ring.

a simple model doesn't require opposite rotations, other models are periodic... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:587:4110:2700:910E:88B:F6ED:9358 (talk) 15:56, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
