  1. there was a typo in my post so I'm gonna make the correction here. "alone" not "along"
  2. Ah man then you should learn LaTex. You can visualize all the math with it
  3. Unless you somehow incorporate some computer I do not see how, using my currently limited knowledge, you can detect multiple different objects using a single impedance along. And even with that you would require positional data. Of course I could be wrong. An analogy would be that you can determine 1+2+3+4 = 10, but you can not determine 10 = 1+2+3+4 if you only have 10 as the value. You can only guess at it. And because you are using only a single impedance value then it would be much more difficult to determine positional values. Now this is just a super wrong guess so do not take my word fo
  4. oh my gosh, I feel so stupid. I just got if,then statements.

    I was thinking about it and then realized that it is like a machine in which the p goes in and the q comes out and if the output is false then the entire statement is false because p and q have to both be true.

    Also the p is like the hypothesis and q is like the conclusion. if the hypothesis is true then the conclusion will always to true. That's like the base line. And then the if,then statement is like the comparison to that said baseline to determine if the overall statement is true or not.



  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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

  8. 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.
  9. @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?
  10. Maybe the universe is still very young and it takes a while for complex intelligent life to form in analogous "pockets" of it.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. ah, my mistake. Never knew about that cognitive bias.
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. The purpose of this topic is for me to try and gain a better understanding of what "rules" are in the context of understanding of what knowledge is. The question that I wish to begin this topic on is "what are rules ?" in the context of philosophy? My current understanding of them is that they are repeated actions or behaviors of some observation. Say for example seeing a car multiple times in a row. You may define a rule stating that "a car will pass by." Thank you for your responses. edit: reduced it to remove all the vagueness
  21. I have decided to go down the path of scientific computing for my CS major and I want to improve my knowledge on the subject. Does anyone know of any free resources available that I can maybe look into? Thank you for your responses.
  22. So java code gets interpreted on the java virtual machine which then get translated to the computers processing instructions through the jvm? But why does java have so much portability? Is the JVM easier to write than a c compiler for the processor? How does that work? Sorry if I am skipping around in learning about computer science. Things are just brought up that I am completely blank on.
  23. OOOOOHH, ok I think I understand now. You want to implement each object as its own separate thing which can be used and implemented in different areas with other classes/objects. All of which come together to form an overall software or program which gets executed in the main/driver class. And you want to maintain this separating principle because it allows for some kind of translatability between classes. Analogous to say not necessarily a function but a physical construction of something. Like building blocks kind of. Except they can be called and implemented differently. A guess I woul
  24. Apologies for the confusion, I meant to say "Black Box" Algorithm implying that the algorithms workings is unknown to the programmer when implementing it. Again sorry bad at English. So what do you mean by data which is dimensional, do you mean like data with more than 1 field or are you referring to vectors in cs language?
  25. I thought this place looked shinier.
