    If strangelet can convert stars, we would see many stars converted as we observe through telescopes. We would also see neutron stars with unusually tiny masses. As we don't see these, we can say that hypotesis of this strange matter is highly improbable.

    So black holes save us but still are drawing us in to finish us, so we are super rare to reach this point, or the universe is so big we have yet to understand how to use and Manipulate such elements properly. Or are we just a part or a cell or atom of a way greater being.

    The idea Strangelets exist is just a theory, its purely a hypothetical particle, and the theory they would breakdown other nearby protons and neutrons and produce more strangelets is just a theory, so this whole video is a theory ontop of a theory ontop of a theory..

  38. Quine Borges

    It's very simple but not that easy. Since quarks exists and pressure inside such star is bigger than the measured nuclear strong force for that atom/quark they set a equation to work on (Probably related to energy), once this equation is solved they try to interpret what it could mean by comparing with stuff that they know. it is simple the hard part comes from solving the equation, there probably will be multiple ways to solve it (some arriving at a correct result) and once it is solved you have to read it to know what such equation is implying.

    Problem with trying to determine what strange matter is starts firstly with Trying to impose our own understandings of the laws of the universe onto it. When dealing with something is already KNOWN to piss on reality as it is. It is best to approach it by just tossing everything we assume we know out the fucking window to start with before even attempting to try to understand it. if you assume that "it" in our reality will do A-1 all the time. Assume it will do ZQ-8674 More likely every Tuesday in June then The usual A-1 on a February 16th. Humans can be so fucking arrogant in there self imposed belief that everything must match what we so far know about what is "reality'
