  1. No, you did not. Rediscovered just the wheel. Widely known and used even by CPU engineers to save space in the CPU registers.. Really huh, I thought I discovered something ground breaking there. It just goes to show that by going through and presenting your ideas to others it will allow for an honest critique of your work and updating my previous falsely held beliefs. I honestly thought I had something there for a second, could have saved a lot of time just posting the idea when I had it. Self Reflection: The above section is very misleading in which it state
  2. So the other day I was working on a program and figured out how I could increase the storage capacity of an integer inside of a variable. The formula is as following New_Space = Old_Space + Value_of_Integer*Base_Being_Used^Position_of_integer Example: Old_Space = 1,000,000 Value_of_Integer = 12 Base_Being_Used = 100 Position_of_integer = 1 New_Space = 1,000,000 + 12*100^1 New_Space = 1,012,000 ** The Above would have 2 integer values with max length of 99 able to be store in a single integer. Notes: - The number of positional v
  3. Reason 1) I get the feeling that one of the biggest reasons why so many people challenge the sciences in its validity is due in part to them believing that it is some giant enemy in which conflicts with there ideals and beliefs and they feel as though they are obligated to go against this "paradigm."

    Reason 2)Also another reason may be that they wish to be "on top" of the pyramid so to speak. In which they want to be the next einstein or dirac. In the same vein as a pop star.

    Reason 3) Or there is also the conventional reason in which they are just curious about the subject manner and want to dig deeper into it to gain a more of an understanding.

    Because I like labels I will define each reason for easier representation.

    Reason 1) The Belief Upenders

    Reason 2) The Stars Chasers

    Reason 3) The Curiously Minded

  4. The variation of different persons is not defined by artificial boundaries set by people. Whereas they are dependent on environmental and other factors. Lines which have been drawn in the sand does not change much except for the persons ego about the differences.
  5. @Dr.Zack Are you sharing this because you are interested in the subject of earths curvature and wanted to discuss you findings on a means of finding it or are you placing into question the fact that the earth has a curve and is overall not flat?
  6. Maybe the universe is still very young and it takes a while for complex intelligent life to form in analogous "pockets" of it.
  7. I am good, so far everything has been a good review of what I have learned when I was taking EE classes in uni. It also helps because I did poorly in those classes because of reasons and you explaining it in this step by step manner really clears things up. I was unaware that four terminal networks could be used to model a large amount of circuit elements. Also for better reference of my current EE knowledge I am good up until amplifiers and transistors. Also I have to go back over Thevinen and Norton circuits. Hopefully that helps.
  8. So far so good. If I am understanding you correctly from an engineering "lens", so to speak, I do not need to worry about the "physics" in terms how everything "works" but instead I only really need to understand how to use and apply the models.
  9. Also seeing that you are correct that this would be an engineering question rather than a physics one, would it be possible for this thread to be moved there so that no confusion comes of this in the future.
  10. I posted in the physics because I was unsure of the section and was not thinking at the time to place it in the engineering section. I want to work on the electrical engineering model.
  11. I am studying electrical engineering again and have read that the electrons travel from the negative lead to the positive one at a very slow velocity. Now the book states that in order for the mechanism for voltage to work an electron accumulation or "build up" occurs at the negative lead and when a non-zero resistance in placed between the positive and negative leads an impulse of energy is sent through the conductor which connects the positive and negative ends of the battery. My question is, as seen from the title, if that pulse happens continuously then how fast are the electrons buil
  12. I...did not Ah..I see. I was being stupid and miss interpreted what your link meant. My mistake. I will take a look around.
  13. ah, my mistake. Never knew about that cognitive bias.
  14. When I stated "My current understanding for them" I am meaning that the working comprehension I have developed is based on knowledge which may not be true. In this I believe that I have distinguished a difference in meaning between "knowledge" and "understanding." What I mean by understanding is that I am trying to apply some given piece of knowledge which leads up to the quoted section above. The piece of knowledge that may be true or false. I do not see where I may have confused the terms "understanding" and "knowledge." If I have please point it out in the my wording and I will co
  15. Thank you for your response @studiot however the link you provided does not necessarily define what rules are. Whereas it provides two sub links of "rule consequentialism" and the "rule of law." Now rule consequentialism talks about the usage of a rule in the formulation of a given ideology such as utilitarianism. It also initially talks about the use of rules in the deciding of a given morality. However its only mentions is in passing and is not defined. The "rule of law" speaks on distinguishing between "the rule of law" and "a rule of law" while also being applied to some given le
