I assume by your use of capital letters in your reply that you are confident
of the meaning of the word "everything". I would suggest that the everything
you claim that we have observed in the Universe is only a small fraction of
the everything that is in the Universe. It has only been relatively recently
that astronomers have observed planets outside our small Solar System. Our laws
of physics in a more accurate sense would be reflecting the limited amount
we have observed in the Universe and in no way is the Universe bound or ultimately
described by those laws as there is much that we do not know and the behaviour
of the Universe is beyond our control. Subatomic particles alone are something
man has only begun to explore and with current technology it is not something
which readily reveals itself. If everything is based from these unimaginably small
particles, the nature of which is almost completely unknown, how can we claim
with confidence our laws of physic are perfect?
I do not argue that modern man has not observed any objects in space which
behave in the way Px is purported to behave. There are no massive planets that
have recently whipped through our solar system which would give us a basis to
understand the nature of how such an object may behave when coming on a direct
path straight towards the sun, emitting light primarily in the red spectrum and
towing many dozens of moons many of which larger than our own moon. The probes
NASA has sent out into deep space have offered mysteries in their behaviour that
remains open to speculation. Surely, we can expect the all that is of Universe
to throw us some surprises now and then...
