1. ## photon frequency?

This isn't a proof but I would suggest trying the "Earth Frame" . (0,0,0) is the center of the Earth and frame and you and I are at "rest" on the surface. Are you suggesting the speed of light to be constant in this frame? Obviously most of the mass of the Universe exceeds 300,000 km/s in this frame.
2. ## Lines and The Human Thought

This could be evidence of time with a starting point also.

4. ## Lines Just a thing we created

Don't worry, soon you will be old and close minded and slow like the rest of us!

7. ## Lines and The Human Thought

If I asked you to pile an infinite amount of bricks prior to piling your favourite brick you named "now" how would you ever get to it, even given an infinite amount of time?
8. ## Lines and The Human Thought

OK, so how could we possibly get to this point in time? I'm not saying I disagree, just curious as to how you view it.
9. ## Location of Big Bang?

Can I ask you guys what you think the odds are of there having been a big bang? I'm quite interested.
10. ## Location of Big Bang?

Well that would be right where I'm sitting then. It went for a drive this morning but now it's back. It's the only preferred reference point I'm aware of.
11. ## Location of Big Bang?

Are you claiming then, that space has a center, but not necessarily (personally I would suggest necessarily not) at any point in space?
12. ## Speed of Light and Theory of Relativity ?

In your reference frame 2 photons sent in opposite directions will "distance" themselves at a rate of 2c. This does not contradict relativistic velocity addition. Nothing is exceeding c in any inertial frame.
13. ## What are Virtual Photons

In my twisted sort of way I was doing both. I was claiming it was false and providing evidence.

16. ## What are Virtual Photons

Excuse my ignorance, but what is binary logic?
17. ## Foucalt pendulum question

Wouldn't that (outside of strong local fields) resemble GR?
18. ## Foucalt pendulum question

What if you changed Mach's statement to "the distant stars in the distant past"?

20. ## The accelerating universe - Cosmic inflation

String theory is the only one that explains what happened on the grassy knoll also. One particular solution (among many others) has Fidel passing Mother Teresa a loaded gun.

22. ## What are Virtual Photons

I loaned Heisenburg \$5 years ago and he still hasn't paid me back! You're right I got it backwords. I meant you could violate conservation of energy temporarily.

Temporarily.
24. ## Foucalt pendulum question

Yes, but it is also (like everything everywhere) in a (read infinitely many)rotating reference frame/s. We usually don't pick them for obvious reasons. Edit: in your example the body (runner) is in an inertial frame and at rest in that frame. So these pseudo forces/effects vanish. If we picked rotating reference frames as may sometimes be useful in engineering we may require pseudo force/effect "adjustments" to correctly use Newton's Laws.
