The Outer Limits
- Pp. 18-36 (19)Diego Elustondo
“The Outer Limits” seeks to determine if science alone could describe everything that is real in the universe. Most would probably agree that not everything can be explained by science. However, the question addressed here is whether science might be able to explain those things in the future. To answer this question, this chapter quickly moves through history from the discovery of electricity and magnetism to the development of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity. It concludes that the separation between objects and events only exist within well-defined theoretical limits, and beyond those limits, everything converges into invisible forms of existence. It does not matter how much technology may advance in the future, there are certain things in the universe that can only be perceived in the mind of the observer.
