  1. And the admins wonder why this site is dead, while Quora & Researchgate are exploding in growth. Maybe they'll figure it out one day. SMH

      Well I checkup on you a few times a year hoping to see change

  2. I'm glad more academics are thinking of Simulation hypothesis in terms of a virtual reality or even video game rather than the ridiculous idea that the simulation must simulate every freaking particle/wave in the entire Universe.

      IOW, it only simulates what it needs to simulate, what is being observed. When you look at a wall in a video game the computer doesn't need simulate atoms in the wall.

  3. I can hardly wait till EHT releases the black hole photo this Wednesday.

      You can get a general ballpark figure since there's a wide range of estimates for mass of Universe but using the relativistic escape velocity equation v = sqrt(2*G*M/r - (G*M/(r*c))^2), mass of 6e+53 kg, radius of 4.4e+26 meters you get an escape velocity of c, the speed of light.

      You should open a thread about this but generally speaking, it makes no sense to talk about escape velocity of the universe. Your calculation aside, you cannot escape to a point outside of the universe, that point would just become the Universe, also how did you get c as a velocity? Please explain. 

      The Universe is finite or infinite. We don't know which one for sure but logically you would need speed in much excess of c to "escape" the Universe either way. For one, the universe is expanding at an increased rate at a "speed" higher than c. Check special relativity. 

      Anyway please provide any published paper you might have that compares the universe with a black hole.

      Given present figures the Universe escape velocity is equal to or near c given the known equation. Mainstream is starting to accept the idea of a multiverse consisting of many Universes, which would mean our Universe is not everything. Mainstream does not understand the mechanics that causes c to be it's present value of 299792458 m/s. For all they know it could be changing as the Universe expands.

  4. Mathematica & maple seem good at simplifying & solving long equations. Leaning towards mathematica. Any thoughts?

  5. Is everyone here afraid of the Rice Experiment? Real scientists are truth seekers.

      So you just like criticizing from the bleachers? Why are you here if not for science discussion?

      It sounds like you've encountered minor peer review before and had some ideas heavily criticized. I hope you realize the distinction between attacking ideas and attacking people. 

      So if I start a discussion for you, what is it exactly you'd like to talk about regarding "the Rice Experiment"? What does it claim to show? What is the big deal about this experiment, and why do you think people are afraid of it? If you don't couch the whole thing in terms of conspiracy, you'll remove a great deal of initial criticism.

      I'd like to see academics researching the rice experiment and similar experiments in-depth. I believe that's what my status post was pointing out.

  8. What I see. Within 15 years you will not recognize this world! Two major splits. Religious & spiritual groups forming around the world drifting toward primitive tribal lifestyles in the wilderness. Techies & scientifically minded begin migrating off planet as commercial space tourism & space stations reach full swing.

      Other news that indicates a major shift on Earth is autonomous vehicles. Car industry says within 3 years all major car manufacturers will offer at least 1 autonomous vehicle. The past week there was a big announcement on a quantum CPU. Look at the fight for dominance in AI between Google, Microsoft, Apple & hundreds of other major companies.

      The day us humans fear, which we really shouldn't, called SINGULARITY, is almost here!! I'd highly highly recommend people get a good news app such as Flipboard & subscribe to the tech, science, future science, AI news boards. The amount of recent news is insane. In 15 years you'll see cars driving & flying themselves, AI Synths in homes comparable to the tv series Humans, people living in earth's orbit ...

  12. When mainstream understands the photon, they will better understand time. When they understand gravity, they will better understand space.

      Understand gravity? I asked 30 people that question a few years ago. #1 answer?

      Because of the earths spin. Ironically when I said that was incorrect someone said I would learn all about it in 12th grade. Looking forward for teacher correction time xD

      Well earth spin adds a bit. Hint: Look at elementary particle spin.

      BTW, the "situation" Einstein was referring to was regarding security.

       

      I think it's great to be a common mainstream scientist. To be an Einstein scientist, to reveal a new level of physics to a world of humans who are not ready for the technology it brings is a tragedy.

      There're researchers who'd disagree with you. Besides, I know someone who's seen the November 18 1954 Reporter magazine. :)

      That is exactly the way to do it. Find someone who has worked on something similar and ask then to endorse you. That is what I did and what all new people must do.

  20. Albert Einstein on Buddhism, which is a philosophy, not a religion. "The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism."

      btw just wanted to add that cp predicts photon momentum also produces the ultra weak 2f radiation.
