  1. Today I learned where the World’s Only Grass-Eating Monkeys Thrive...in the central Ethiopian Highlands. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2017/04/gelada-monkeys-grass-eating-guassa-ethiopia-bleeding-heart/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelada
  2. So? The question was why the reason for a war could be considered to be moral.
  3. Where do those mostly live?
  4. We are limited because of the size off our skull. A brain that's 10 times larger is rather heavy and then you need an elephant-like body to support it.
  5. It can change of course but in general, more people = more fossil fuel use, more cars, more food... The global population has grown from 1 billion in 1800 to 7.616 billion in 2018.
  6. How do those photon detectors work? When you destroy a photon, doesn't conservation of energy states the energy is transformed? When you detect a photon you destroy it and conservation of energy states the kinetic/potential energy of the photon transforms. When a photon is detected then you have imo, the photoelectric effect.
  7. How does stilton tastes? To overthrow something like Nazism...
  8. A couple weeks ago I learned the giant trevally fish can eat/hunt birds.
  9. Yes but it's the observer effect like I said. Destroying a photon(also one that wasn't in superposition) implies transforming it's energy....
  10. Maybe the reason for a war can be considered to be 'moral' but in modern warfare numerous innocent people are generally killed because they happen to be in the wrong place. This is mostly because the weaponry developed/evolved. Wars used to be fought with sword/spear/bow and it was more about single combat. Weapons now kill a lot faster and can kill 'many' people at once.(Nuclear/biologic bomb….) The reason for a war can be considered moral but the war itself is not.
  11. When Europeans arrived in the Americas, they caused so much death and disease that it changed the global climate, a new study finds. European settlers killed 56 million indigenous people over about 100 years in South, Central and North America, causing large swaths of farmland to be abandoned and reforested, researchers at University College London, or UCL, estimate. The increase in trees and vegetation across an area the size of France resulted in a massive decrease in carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, according to the study. Carbon levels changed enough to cool the Earth by 1610, researchers found. Columbus arrived in 1492, "CO2 and climate had been relatively stable until this point," said UCL Geography Professor Mark Maslin, one of the study's co-authors. "So, this is the first major change we see in the Earth's greenhouse gases." Before this study, some scientists had argued the temperature change in the 1600s, called the Little Ice Age, was caused only by natural forces.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/02/01/world/european-colonization-climate-change-trnd/index.html
  12. That's correct I think. As the Azolla fern sank to the stagnant sea floor, they were incorporated into the sediment; the resulting draw-down of carbon dioxide has been speculated to have helped transform the planet from a "greenhouse Earth" state, hot enough for turtles and palm trees to prosper at the poles, to the icehouse Earth it has been since.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azolla_event
  13. Yes but in here they do use detectors and it is about collapsing superposition. When you detect a photon you transform it's energy. Observing a photon changes the photon.
  14. Those detectors which are often used in a Double Slit Experiment are measuring devices and collapse the superposition. This is the observer effect.
  15. It's about having faith. Many people do believe Jesus helps them and and wil appear in human form to beam them up to heaven. I once got a ride of 2 Christian missionaries and I got the funny advice to restore my faith or Jesus would leave me behind.
  16. CREATARDs https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Creatard
  17. When I did dogsledding, one of my dogs was called 'Baffin'. I'm very curious to how nature will react. Trees and plants can grow bigger/increase in quantity and populate new area's...but plant eating insects as well. Like the Mountain Pine Beetle in B.C. .https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/industry/forestry/managing-our-forest-resources/forest-health/forest-pests/bark-beetles/mountain-pine-beetle
  18. It's hard because only our logic/intuition tells us it's there, it's a mental construct. Gravity is also hard to quantize but that interacts with for example photons so logic dictates there is something physical about gravity.
  19. This is my oversimplified view/explanation. Spacetime is basically the medium in which quantizable observations do there thing. Spacetime implies a coordinate system to which we attach observations and try to understand/make sense of reality. I think a quantum gravity model needs to be 'proven' and find its way in the world of science/technology in order to quantize spacetime.
  20. There might be some mechanism since it can in some cases significantly increase survivability/adaptability. This is for wild animals, not for modern humans.
