  1. Thanks all I've tried out quite a few. Incase anyone is interested, i found a pretty user friendly one called Graph: http://www.padowan.dk/graph/ Cheers
  2. Hi, I've been searching google for good ath software but i cant find anything decent. What i'm after is a program that can graph equation simply with trig functions ect. Any links? Thanks
  3. Thanks guys, That was really helpful. I guess i should stop thinking about learning chemistry and just learn it Cheers
  4. Hi, I am just starting to learn chemistry and was wondering what the best way to go about it would be. Is it useful to memorize the whole periodic table with some of the key characteristics of each element? Also, i have alway wondered what chemical equations were. Would someone be able to give a brief explanation about what they are and what they are used for. Also, how do you become good at them. Another thing i've always wondered is, there seems to be millions of different compounds, is it just a matter of having good reference material or is it necessary to learn most of the most common ones. Sorry if my questions are too basic Thanks
  5. Hi Ophiolite, I had never heard of this book til you mentioned it. Just did a quick search and google and it seems like a pretty full on book I'll see if i can get a copy. Thanks
  6. Thanks guys You've always got the good links Peels Cheers
  7. Hi, I was hoping people could give me thier opinions on whether science is capable of finding out what conciousness is. I dont have a huge amount of knowledge in science but would like to study it next year at uni and was wondering if searching for conciousness through science was a dead end. Now it is just a matter of choosing which field to get into. My own ponderings have taken me from physics and various theories of quantum conciousness which seems to be way above my head, to molecular biology and the chemistry of mind altering drugs like lsd. It seems none of these fields focus heavily on conciousness. I noticed that Francis Crick moved away from molecular biology to neuro science and predicted that neuroscientists now have adequate tools to study the brain and hopefully find the mind - brain link. In your opinion, which field of science has the potential to figure out conciousness? And what are some of the fields to look into? Any opinions or thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Thanks EDIT: I posted this in the general discussion too. Hope you dont mind Just incase neuros dont go there...

  9. Thanks for the link Peels That gives me a bit more info to search with. Cheers
  10. Hi, I recently listened to a talk by a quite famous buddhist monk who was talking about how science isn't any closer to understanding what conciousness really is. This monk has a Phd in theoretical physics from Cambridge University. He used an example of what i presume was some kind of neuro scientist named John Lorber from the University of Sheffield who was doing research of people that seemed too have no, or very little brain matter. He told of a 19 yr old mathematics major who was very intelligent and yet had no brain. I figured if this was real, there would be tons of writing about it but all i can find on the web is paranormal and pseudo science sites with this research. Have any neuro scientists or anyone else for that matter here heard of this? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  11. Hi, I dont know a great deal about ge foods and wondering if it is the answer to feeding the hungry. What are your thoughts about this? Would appreciate any opinions Thanks
  12. Hi, I was just wondering if it is possible for an atom to die. eg If you had a hydrogen atom isolated somewhere on its own, say a vacuum box or something, would it stay in there with the same state forever or will it disappear? Also, with bigger attoms, will they break down to simpler atoms over time? Sorry if this is to basic but my knowledge of matter is limited Thanks
  13. First, a big thanks to everyone. This thread has really changed the way i think about the universe. There have been alot of great theories mentioned in this post. Well, off to the library to read up on cosmology Anyone know any good non math lay people books on the subject? I have my own view of where the universe is located. Now I know you are all a bunch of hardcore scientists and the mere mention of anything remotely religious makes your skin crawl but I'll throw it out there just for the hell of it. If you turn off your sense of sight where is the universe? If you then turn off your sense of hearing, taste, touch and smell what is left? Only mind. Mind without objects. Except for thought. Now turn thought off. Only pure mind is left. No universe. Nothing to measure. Way back when the universe first started to expand, before the human race and animals ,whether by an expansion of matter in an infinte vacuum or by the very expansion of space itself, what was there to witness it? If there were no obserservers, was it there? Is it not possible this very expansion happened in the mind? And that all that exists is mind made? The buddha said not to belive anything but to find out for yourself. Since I have no direct experience with it i cant believe it. just another spin on things Who knows. Thanks again
  14. I see, good advice I was just wondering whether i should take a physics unit but i think i will just study it on my own. Thanks
  15. Cool, thanks guys I'm taking linear algebra at the moment and a course on matlab. Hopefuly that should be enough to get me through next semesters chemistry course. Thanks again
