Recent polls indicate that 42% of Americans and an astonishing 52% of people in the United Kingdom believe in ghosts.
But could it be possible that all these people could be completely wrong? According to Professor Brian Cox, there is now irrefutable proof that ghosts simply cannot exist.
Does the Large Hadron Collider disprove the existence of ghosts?
Professor Cox recently said that there is simply no room in the Standard Model of Physics that would allow for the human spirit to continue interacting with the world post-mortem and go unnoticed by the Large Hadron Collider. While Professor Cox conceded that the Standard Model of Physics is not a perfect framework to understand energy exchange in the universe, he said that the existence of ghosts could be disproved by one of the most rigorously tested and most important laws of physics known to humanity, namely, the second law of thermodynamics.
Professor Cox explains that entropy is a term used by physicists to describe the chaos within an isolated system. The second law of thermodynamics states then when usable energy is discarded then the level of chaos increases. This means that without extra energy being exerted into the system then progression towards disorder cannot be reversed. This means that ghosts, which are presumably comprised of pure energy, would be unable to maintain their existence for any length of time particularly if they were engaged in something that required the expenditure of more energy such as movement, or making noises.
The astrophysicist DeGrasse Tyson said that while he had no reason to dispute anything that Professor Cox had said that he had ‘haunting experiences’ in the past which had led him to want to believe in ghosts. “In that moment, there’s a mystery, and it’s kinda fun, “Tyson said, “And that allows me to understand, and even embrace, the urge that people have to want there to be this deep mystery, such as ghosts of ancestors. I have a soft spot for what that psychological state is, because I’ve felt that intermittently, except I kept exploring and getting the answer.”
