The creatures of anti-time

I always enjoyed early science fiction as it included science. It does become a problem as science becomes more complex and it is difficult to incorporate some speculative aspect of science in such a way that enough people can understand the premise. It seems that what is called science fiction today is just fantasy fiction like Harry Potter or Mary Poppins. I was watching a Dr Who movie and boy has that franchise gone down hill. I started watching it long ago when they mentioned the proportionality of current voltage and resistance. The science has left that show long ago and been replaced with drippy space based drama.

I was watching the show and Dr Who jumped out of a spacecraft moving at about 600 miles an hour tangential to the Earth and landed without any tangential velocity. He also fell from the ship and crashed through a vaulted ceiling ( as the chain hangs, so is the arch built ), which would have yielded about 200 G's or so of surface compression, which is sufficient to liquefy human cells. I suppose he could be made of stronger cells, but he gets cuts on his hands and face from a struggle, so it is inconsistent. He apparently has morphed into a cross between Superman, Luke Skywalker, The Terminator, and Mary Poppins.

So here is some real science fiction. It does seem that there are real living things that could be all about us and we would have no knowledge of them nor they of us. It reminds me a bit of "Buckaroo Banzai across the 8th dimension". It is possible that those around us have not caught on to the fact that there is another world intersecting with theirs. They would see the universe as continuous, like a great ocean. It is difficult to comprehend the scale of complexity that is possible, considering that we judge the universe on the few ( 1020 ) pieces of rock and there is 1077 cubic meters of known space. The difference ( 1057 ) is a BIG number.
