That Word Doesn't Mean What You Think It Means

Geeks can certainly say dumb things sometimes.
Scientists question fundamental laws - Space News - "'There is absolutely no reason these constants should be constant,' says astronomer Michael Murphy of the University of Cambridge. 'These are famous numbers in physics, but we have no real reason for why they are what they are.'

The observed differences are small — roughly a few parts in a million — but the implications are huge: The laws of physics would have to be rewritten, not to mention we might need to make room for six more spatial dimensions than the three that we are used to."
Plus, dude has no imagination. Obviously didn't read A Wrinkle In Time, otherwise he would be looking for a tesseract instead of cluelessly scratching his pocket protector.
