Out of our time -Time, relativity and event horizons

Many people have through their physics education gotten a basic grasp of relativity. However translating this into a more general understanding of the effect of the equations is something different.

In the following I will by an example, or rather a thought-experiment try to illustrate how the inside of the event horizon of a black hole is basically not a part of our universe.

Why does Dr. Manhattan have difficulties finding humans morally valuable?

I was just skimming through the book “Watchmen and philosophy” (Mark D. White, William Irwin) where Christopher Robichaud touches in on the subject in the title of this short essay.

If you are not familiar with the character, and thus do not quite get the subject, I suggest you go read the graphic novel.

It is obvious that Dr. Manhattan has problems with his emotional attachment to humans, and there of course can be multiple reasons for this. As he is a fictional character, we must also take into account that Alan Moore - a great artist he may be - may not have foreseen absolutely all possible aspects of extrapolating the characteristics of his characters into the philosophical realm.
