Millions of years ago, the ancient ape who walked out of the forest, after a long and arduous evolution, finally embarked on the path of intelligent evolution. With the continuous increase of wisdom, mankind also entered the stage of primitive civilization tens of thousands of years ago. Since then, mankind has officially stepped onto the stage of history, becoming the overlord at the top of the food chain, and ushering in a glorious era of human civilization.
In the following tens of thousands of years, mankind relied on intelligent brains, rich imagination and creativity to create miracles again and again, and embarked on the path of scientific development hundreds of years ago. The emergence of science has completely changed the development of mankind. From then on, we can see everything around us and everything in the world with a scientific eye.
It can be said that in addition to some unique innate advantages that human beings can achieve today, more importantly, they cannot do without the help of science. Without science, there would be no current achievements of mankind.
The essence of science is actually very simple, that is, it is a theory used to reflect the laws of the universe. Science itself exists in the universe. They are not unique inventions and creations of human beings. Scientists are just porters, unearthing the hidden science in the universe and serving mankind.
Whether it is Newton’s law of universal gravitation or Einstein’s theory of relativity, they exist in the universe themselves, but they have been found out by the great wisdom of mankind, thus helping mankind achieve a qualitative leap.
Science is a tool for mankind to explore the unknown, and it is the powerlessness of human civilization to move forward. With the help of science, human beings can establish a connection between facts and phenomena, allowing us to recognize everything in this world with a new perspective, and to recognize the essence of everything.
Science has brought about a qualitative change in the quality of human life, and the technology brought about by science has freed us from the shackles of the earth and brought mankind from the small earth to the vast space of the universe. After walking out of the earth, we saw a cosmic space that was extremely large and exaggerated. In this cosmic space, humans believe that alien civilization exists.
If alien civilizations exist, then a question arises: in the vast universe, there may be countless intelligent civilizations, so are the development paths of different intelligent civilizations the same? Human beings are technological civilizations, so are other intelligent civilizations also technological civilizations? Or did their civilization develop another way?
I believe that many of my friends have heard of magic. We know that magic is mainly literary works created through human fantasy. In many fantasy works, there are a lot of mysterious magic, so will magic exist in the real universe? Will alien civilizations go out of the path of magical development?
In fact, to unravel this mystery, we must first understand the nature of magic? By reading many magic novels, friends can see that the basic elements of magic are the five elements, which are gold, wood, water, fire, and earth, and the five elements are the basic elements of nature, and they can all be explained by science.
Magic is some magical skills created by applying the elements of the five elements, and the elements of the five elements are elements that exist naturally and are within the scope of scientific application. Therefore, in essence, magic is also a kind of science, and it is essentially the same as science and technology, which is the front and back of science.
In fact, these are also very easy for us to understand. These modern technologies are “magic” to the ancients. Just imagine if the ancients from thousands of years ago traveled through the long river to come to the modern era, then in the eyes of the ancients, modernity would be regarded as “magic”. It is the place where the gods live, and it is regarded as heaven. The ancients couldn’t imagine and understand all these things in modern daily life. They can only be attributed to magic.
For the same reason, the technology after a thousand years is equally unimaginable and incomprehensible to us as human beings, and may also regard future technology as magic. Therefore, magic can actually be explained perfectly by science, such as the invisibility technique that everyone expects.
In the world of magic, invisibility is just an ordinary technique. In the eyes of many people, invisibility only exists in magic, which violates the laws of science. So is this really the case? Of course not. In fact, invisibility can be explained by science. It is not a particularly magical thing.
We all know that we can see the existence of objects because light enters our field of vision. When we close our eyes, we will not be able to see objects. As long as we can prevent the light around ourselves from entering the vision of others, then we can achieve invisibility, which is invisible to others through naked eyes.
So can this kind of thing be achieved? The answer is yes. Einstein’s theory of relativity pointed out that space is not flat, but is distorted. The distortion of time and space will cause the light to be distorted. Of course, the degree of light distortion under normal circumstances is very weak, and we can see the object.
If through certain technology, the space around the object is more strongly distorted to the extent that the light is distorted, then the reflected light of the object cannot enter the human field of vision, and invisibility can be achieved. Therefore, the so-called invisibility technique in magic can be realized when the technology develops to a certain level.
Through these understandings, we know that magic and technology are essentially sciences, so there are many intelligent civilizations in the vast universe. Due to their different locations and living environments, some civilizations may be different from humans. The way, the application of science through the way of magic.
Although Einstein’s theory of relativity allows us to recognize the physical laws of the earth and the universe, the laws of physics are similar, but due to the vastness of the universe, it’s not two different positions, and different laws of space physics may still be different. There is a clear difference with the earth.
It is precisely because of the existence of this difference that some alien civilizations, after continuous development, may not necessarily embark on the road of science and technology, but on the road of magic. Regardless of whether it is the path of science and technology or the path of magic, the roots of their emergence are science, which are based on the physical laws of the universe, etc., and must follow the basic scientific laws of the universe.
As for the magical road and the technological road, which one is stronger, which one is easier to reach the end of science, no one can give an answer. Perhaps only when human beings can come into contact with an alien civilization in the future, will there be hope to understand the development path of that civilization. If you are lucky enough to run into a magical civilization, you may be able to see the connection and gap between magic and technology.
