I am a graduate student studying astrophysics at Princeton. I received my bachelor's in physics and mathematics from Caltech (2011).

comment Justification for new theories of Particle Physics and General Relativity
I got to page 3 of the GR paper, and at that point I lost count of the number of crackpot indicators I saw (over a dozen). "EFEs failed to explain the dark matter and dark energy" (of course they fail there - they are equations of motion, and they say nothing about what exists in the universe); no solution for CMB in spherical symmetry (so hundreds of cosmologists all missed this fact for the last century?); looking to the EFEs to explain inhomogeneity; the list goes on.

comment What is the status of Everett's Thought Equation?
I make my living doing simulations that are more massive and data-intensive than most people who work with computers can even dream of. And I can tell you we are no where near capable of simulating something like a person, their lab equipment, and their memories down to the quantum level. As in you could turn every computer on the planet toward the task and you still wouldn't be making progress.
