I was browsing youtube this morning, searching for any uploaded lectures yesterday. I was absolutely delighted when my eyes caught this! For a while now, I’ve been thinking about Infinity, and it’s role in modern Cosmology, trying to understand how our current ignorance can all be pieced together. I wanted to hear some standard views on this. And this is exactly what I needed!    

The speakers are quite interesting too – John Barrow, George Ellis, Anthony Aguirre. I never heard the others speak. Surely, this isn’t going to be an easy viewing. I probably won’t understand most of what’s being said. At least, I might be able to familiarize myself with the terminology, the current debates and the unknowns.

Here’s the link –
