  1. Man taking this Physics class.. I'm just loving every intricacy. There is a beauty I seen in it like no other comparable , when I'm learning Kinematics for the first time and I realize how I can describe motion mathematically, or the fashion in which the concepts of physics interpret the universe for the way she is as abstract as she is in an patternistic, simple, and proportional manner. I love how we take impossibly complex problems and solve them by breaking them down into simple kinematics. I'm definitely in the right science. The discipline of physics is so magnificently beautiful.
  2. Thank you. I'm getting into those videos. I'll also definitely turn to you guys for further understanding.
  3. I have to also admit I've never taken Calculus level math. Though I'm concurrently going to take College Physics (Thank God I finally manage to take it) and Calculus 1 together. I'm a little worried, should I be? I've never taken a Calculus class and this will be my first Physics class.
  4. What are all the forms of factoring that I need to master? Where is greatest common denominator used as oppose to least common denominator? What is the difference between Greasiest common denominator as oppose to greatest common factor? I need to master this. I want to master this.
  5. Do philosophers every make any positive contributions in science? I've thought about this, and I figure that philosophers usually don't ask many worthwhile or even relevant questions that which are any use in science. What is your thought on that ajb.
  6. Yes from my limited experience, this is what I've come to realize as well.
  7. Do we know what energy is in Physics? I've thought about this for a long time, but it seems as though energy some what synonymous with motion and potential for motion. This my interpretation from my readings. Potential to do work. Though what causes an object to do work? What is it within the fabrics of that object that allows it do such a thing? Does this relate back to entropy and perhaps the big bang? It seems to me that energy comes from the instability of something to a more stable existence. Thus does this relate somehow to the big bang perhaps, how the general directionality of the universe is from unstable to more stable?
  8. Well.. next time I'll be prepared. I think we are done here. There is nothing else to be said other then, next time I wont make the same mistake of just going off the top of my head using my phone as a keyboard interface.
  9. I apologies.. Arete and CharonY as well as the moderating staff and I also like to apologies to swansont from the physics forum. I'm from a confrontational culture and it's finals week so I've been a little stressed out in general. With that said, I respect you guys' expertise, knowledge, experience, and do realize my own inexperience and ignorance. Though I feel as though I have good things to say and I get all worked up when I think that one of you guys' has misinterpreted or misunderstood my point.
  10. I've agreed with this in my earlier comments. I know notice that in these forums we also have to be "politically correct" at all times otherwise it leads to misunderstandings and bickering back and forth with what we actually meant. For example.. I meant to say "Biological Systems.. and not "Organisms" push. Unfortunately this whole discussion has been ravaged with misunderstandings.
  11. Yeah, my initial major was software engineering and than I got into Neuroscience. I'm graduating this spring with a degree of some sort, I've already applied for graduation and I'm taking Physics 1 this spring so I'm pretty excited. I just turned 21, exactly two months ago and I'm seriously considering physics major.
  12. I admit, I probably have heard some over exaggerations. I'm not in direct contact with anyone's salary information and have gotten most of my information from undergrad. biochemist majors lol. But I wills say this, I do know of one professional Biochemist working at TTU, who does make 80~90 K with a Phd doing research. The other biochemist major is the father of my friend, who makes about 100 K working in the industry. The rest of the BIochemist I know are just undergrads. I know in most other biology majors you would be lucky to see a 50 K a year.
  13. Higher gene pool = higher survivability Better suited traits = higher survivability More offspring = higher survivability More resources = higher survivability The push for greater fitness by organisms means higher survivability and so fitness in this sense can have broad definition. CharonY I never once said natural selection was the model by which humans will evolve. No I'm definitely not comfortable with that explanation. Our society doesn't run on Darwinian philosophies, natural selection for humans has little meaning in this sense. However the push for greater fitness is still a viable model for humans to continue evolving. Though we must also respect the fact that our species is in evolutionary equilibrium and that most of evolution is dictated by periods of equilibrium. The main problem I have with you Arete is that you continuously want to define fitness, so much so that I don't even know what your actual point is. Otherwise I do respect your knowledge and experience as well as yours CharonY.
