8 Theories About Reality That Make You Question Everything

Toot toot, all aboard the existential crisis train.


You know those days where you wake up and everything seems to slot into place?

Maybe you feel as though you're just beginning to get the hang of life. Perhaps your job is going well, or you've found that you can hold your own in a discussion about politics; perhaps you've just found a fiver in your pocket.

Well, how better to bring all of that crashing down around you, than with a little foray into the world of theoretical physics?

In this world, nothing is taken for granted, not even reality itself. In the realm of the theoretical physics, each time you try to investigate the universe it just gets weirder.

It's not so much that the more you try to unravel the mysteries of the universe, the more tangled they get. It's more like the more you try to unravel the mysteries of the universe, the mysteries turn into snakes and start shouting at you in German.

So, the next time you think you've got it all figured out, just remember that nothing is real, we might be living inside a black hole and that's only if we exist at all.

Ahh, I love the smell of existentialism in the morning.
