Rachel // Contained in a SKELETON PRISON // 23yrs old
Music / Myself / Dragon Age / Art / Edu / * * * * *
My name is Rachel, and I gallivant across the lands in search of woe-struck victims of fell, evil creatures and misdeeds against humanity and morality alike. In my spare time I conclude that I do other productive things. Such as writing stories! And making pretty espresso, equipped with a sassy (albeit polite) demeanour, to generate that cashflow that sustains modern living! I will provide updates on my creative endeavours on this page, which is my personal work of all sorts. Did I mention that I work on said things with my significant other? He's here too.

What Is the Universe? Real Physics Has Some Mind-Bending Answers
Science says the universe could be a hologram, a computer program, a black hole or a bubble—and there are ways to check.
by Victoria Jaggard

The questions are as big as the universe and (almost) as old as time: Where did I come from, and why am I here? That may sound like a query for a philosopher, but if you crave a more scientific response, try asking a cosmologist.
This branch of physics is hard at work trying to decode the nature of reality by matching mathematical theories with a bevy of evidence. Today most cosmologists think that the universe was created during the big bang about 13.8 billion years ago, and it is expanding at an ever-increasing rate. The cosmos is woven into a fabric we call space-time, which is embroidered with a cosmic web of brilliant galaxies and invisible dark matter.
It sounds a little strange, but piles of pictures, experimental data and models compiled over decades can back up this description. And as new information gets added to the picture, cosmologists are considering even wilder ways to describe the universe—including some outlandish proposals that are nevertheless rooted in solid science…
