For fashion conscious readers of this blog, Gail has persuaded me to model my 'best' collar, rarely worn, but fitting for this special post, my one hundredth!
For the more serious minded (I count myself in this category), I would like to share with you my latest scientific hypothesis....
Many of you will already be familiar with the ideas of String Theory, a construct which combines quantum mechanics and general relativity into a quantum theory of gravity. One prediction of this theory is that there are a near infinite number of parallel universes, i.e. a 'multiverse', that together comprise all of reality.
For a theory to be scientific, it must be testable, and until now, a a major problem with the multiverse is that this testability criterion has not been met.
I say until now because, with the help of my blogging friends, I think I have this one cracked!
For we already have several examples of parallel universes in the dog blogosphere do we not?
Think of Petey and all his pals, simultaneously in their own homes and having the most amazing adventures in Scotland. It seems that Asta is both in New York and at the Rodeo in Montana with Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie. Martha and Bailey appparently saw me in Mugdock Woods, when I was also staying beside Loch Torridon.
I notice that the Barkalot Boys have started to ponder this problem too. Mindful (as was Charles Darwin when he heard that Alfred Russel Wallace had also hit upon the idea of natural selection) of the need to establish scientific priority, I have decided to write a paper detailing this evidence, a major advance in theoretical physics, without further ado.
Any further relevant data that my blogging pals can contribute will be gratefully received, and of course properly acknowledged in future publications.
A Nobel Prize beckons, surely?
Oh, and here's another picture of my collar.
