TOP 10 BONE CHILLING SCIENCE THEORIES

Science progresses so fast that we take a lot of things for granted. From nuclear bombs to genetic cloning, and so many things that to even just our parents and grandparents were unimaginable. We know by now that science is capable of grand things, but also of the most horrifying outcomes. Science theories make us question everything we were ever taught in school and that we take for granted. Which is what brings us to the top 10 bone chilling science theories. But before we get started, why not become an archivist today by clicking that subscribe button and notification bell so you don't miss out on any future uploads! If you end up enjoying this video, let us know by giving it a thumbs up and tell us in the comment section what theory chills you the most!



10. Omniverse Theory
The Multi-verse theory says there is an infinite number of universes that represent every possibility that could ever exist. Omni-verse theory goes a step further and says there is an infinite number of multi-verses that represent different arrangements of these universes, adding an additional layer of mind-boggling infinity. In layman's terms, this means that for every decision that you make, another universe will branch off from whatever choices you were contemplating. So, basically, any possibility to any possibility will be played out.

9. Killer Heat
Our sun's photosphere reaches temperatures of 6,000 degrees Celcius, or 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit and is responsible for the visible light we see on Earth. It’s the brightest thing in our lives, the only star we know, and it’s featured in all our kindergarten drawings. The thing with stars though, is that they have a life cycle. The older they are, the hotter and bigger they get. Our sun is a suburban dad in sun years. It wears cargo shorts and polos, it mows the lawn, but it’s only getting older so it’s bound to get hotter. In 4-5 billion years from now, the Sun will have expanded into the Earth's orbit, which will engulf the entire planet into flames. Suddenly being the third closest planet to the Sun seems quite scary… can we take another place in line?

8. Holographic Principle
What’s scarier than impending hot doom? Maybe not existing at all. The Hologram Universe theory states that perhaps we’re not real at all. It says that we might be completely holographic, the creation of an anonymous creature. According to this theory, when we look at the sky, what we really see is a wall with an image on of galaxies and stars. To quote Professor Kostas Skenderis of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton, “Imagine that everything you see, feel and hear in three dimensions (and your perception of time) in fact emanates from a flat two-dimensional field. The idea is similar to that of ordinary holograms where a three-dimensional image is encoded in a two-dimensional surface, such as in the hologram on a credit card. However, this time, the entire universe is encoded!” If someone hasn’t made a movie about this, they really should.

7. Black Hole Theory
The Black Hole Theory isn’t just “there are black holes” I mean, at this point, we’ve seen them! This theory, though, says that they might not be so far at all. In fact, we may be living in one. Dr. Nikodem Poplawski at Indiana University says that getting sucked into a Black Hole isn’t the end-all-be-all. In fact, that matter could be creating a whole new universe on the other side. His calculations say that this huge movement of matter could be a “big bang” for another universe. This is where the term “white hole” comes up. A White Hole is a time-reversed Black Hole and could mean the creation of a new universe. This means, our very own Big Bang could have been thanks to our matter movement into a Black Hole and coming out of the other side. If there are more black holes in our own universe, we could open another one inside that, and so on and so forth… is this absolutely terrifying or kind of exhausting? I don’t know yet.

6. The Fermi Paradox
Although coined a paradox, The Fermi Paradox is a pretty refutable hypothesis with the amount of data we currently have, and is one of the scariest ideas on this list. There are so many planets out there, so many galaxies and possibly so many other universes that it is simply appalling that we’ve never found signs of intelligent life outside our planet. This paradox says that either life is way harder to originate than we thought, or there has been more life, but it simply has never survived for a very long period of time. With this theory, it hardly matters which you choose, it basically says we’re all alone here and we’re not likely to be around for much longer anyway.



5. The Zoo Hypothesis
A hypothesis, rather than a theory, but very interesting nonetheless. Maybe we’re not holograms, but what if we are just living our lives under observation? It sure beats the idea of being entirely alone in a massive universe. The Zoo Theory states that aliens do exist, but don’t care to make their presence known to us as to not influence our actions. In fact, they just want to watch how we behave, like anthropology, but super meta. Perhaps when we reach a certain level of development, they’ll reach out, but for now, they’re just taking notes about how very boring and emotional we all are. Think about that next time you feel alone.

4. The Galaxy Merge
Approximately 4-8 billion years from now, our universe, the Milky Way, will merge into the Andromeda Galaxy. Right now, Andromeda is about 2.5 million light years away.. but thanks to the Hubble Telescope, in 2012, we were able to measure that the two galaxies are approaching one another at a rate of 300 kilometers or 186 miles per second. It may sound like a perfect time to get to meet our neighboring planets and such, but the devastation that could follow when that happens would be cataclysmic. It's not predicted that planets will bump into each other like giant billiard balls, but it is a possibility. It's suggested that getting sucked into gravitational pulls of other dwarf stars and burn up or have a new star to call "the sun", which is Earth's only hope to live in past 5-6 billion more years - as our current sun will start expanding in 5 billion years from now, and we'll likely be pulled into its flames within 1 billion years or so after that.

3. The Big Chill
Ever since the Big Bang, our universe has continued to expand. Astronomer, Edwin Hubble, figured this out in the 1900s by measuring changes in the sky which showed consistent and uniform growth. That last name might sound familiar because NASA’s space telescope, launched in 1990, was named after him and studies the expansion of the universe. All well and good so far, right? In this theory, observations suggest that the expansion of the universe will continue on forever. Then a popular theory is that the universe will cool as it expands, which will become too cold to sustain life.

2. Time Ends
What if nothing is accelerating?What if, somehow, we’re deeply mistaken. Some believe that the reason that interplanetary objects seem to move away is that we are not looking through space, but through time to see them. See, they could be dead by now for all we know, because their light is only reaching us years after they emitted it. So, that would tell us that they used to move quickly back when they emitted that light. This leads them to believe that time is actually slowing down. However, if this theory is right, we might be stopping at some point. And then what? Well, we don’t know.

1. The Holocene Extinction
The Holocene extinction, sometimes referred to as the Sixth extinction or Anthropocene extinction, is an event which we currently live in, and is one of the most significant extinction events in the history of the Earth. Currently estimates rate extinction rates as being between 100 to 1,000 times higher than normal, and it's widely believed that humans have played the biggest role in this extinction. Of the previous 5 mass extinctions, climate change and natural disasters were the culprit - but the sixth extinction will be the first time that an animal will be the primary reason for a mass extinction, that could possibly include themselves.
