I am worried about Sheldon and Leonard
I am worried about Sheldon and Leonard, the theoretical physics students in The Big Bang Theory. It is not long time ago when Sheldon lost his faith on super string theory. Lubos told now that even more worrying things have happened now. Sheldon and Leonard got an idea and went to write a paper about space-time as a surface of superfluid.
Space-time as a surface: really crazy! Even worse: sounds very much like TGD! They even have the idea that surface tension could provide the negative "pressure" needed to explain the accelerated expansion. This brings to my mind another stupid idea generated by TGD. String-like magnetic monopole flux tubes and their magnetic tension explain microscopically the negative "pressure" and primordial magnetic fields. Inflationary period is replaced with a phase transition from a gas of cosmic strings to the phase in which one can speak about macroscopic space-time. Theoretical physics would lose all these nice new Higgs like inflaton fields, the intricacies of which have kept colleagues busy for so many years.
Cannot anyone help Sheldon and Leonard? If these fellows continue in this manner, they will soon be the first advocates of TGD! Horrible fate for young students.
When I chose the wrong track, my colleagues reacted immediately to turn me back to the right rail. The solution of the problem was very innovative and final: I was kicked out from Helsinki University, and after than I have been kept outside the University most of these 37 years.
I cannot blame my benevolent colleagues for being irrresponsible: they did their best to help me to adopt the correct scientific behaviors using the well-tested methods that Pavlov applied first to his dogs. It is totally my fault that I am still doing this crackpot science TGD. Yes, I got really scared - just as Pavlov's pets when they got electric shocks - but could not avoid continuing with TGD. Something was wrong with my brain circuitry.
But what to do with Sheldon and Leonard? If they are kicked out from The Big Bang Theory we will lose The Big Bang Theory?
