  1. Regarding the gelatinous sacs encasing kiwano seeds; biochemically speaking, what exactly are they made of and how are they formed?
  2. He is, indeed, the most meme-able man in U.S. history. On another note: Not sure if this should be here or in the chemistry forums, but I'll assume that it'd be more appreciated here.
  3. Here's a brief analysis of proteolytic mechanisms: http://www2.csudh.edu/nsturm/CHE450/11_Enz. Mech.-Ser Protea.htm I'm hoping differences in individual biochemistries won't contrast greatly enough to make an average ratio impractical. I would imagine it would be greatly helpful for someone unable to produce proteolytic enzymes themselves, but I can't say I've seen this happening at the time of writing.
  4. Because it helps our own proteolytic enzymes in their job. When one has a diet consisting majorly of protein, the body doesn't usually produce enough of them to process all of it, which is where bromelain can help. My question is, per 100 grams protein, how much can the body digest on its own, and how much bromelain should be taken for optimal nutrient absorption? Simply put; generally speaking, what would be the optimal ratio of bromelain to protein?
  5. I've been saying something similar: whether or not vacuum decay or anything else listed in my proposition would actually happen, depends on the nature and properties of the unforeseen influence. Have I made myself out to be one that would?
  6. What is it you propose would happen, if not vacuum decay?
  7. That, is actually brilliant. Maybe tomato-hachiya sauce with a little corn vinegar.
  8. There is a reason for it to happen in this circumstance. The Higgs field is in a false vacuum state: that is to say, it mimics the effects of being in the lowest energy state, while what it's really doing is building up potential energy. When if there were to be a sudden spike in the Higgs field's energy distribution, for example a sudden surge of mass and the energy that would need to come with it, all that potential energy would be released as kinetic energy, hurling everything that has mass into its lowest possible energy state. However, as I've said, this might not even happen depending on the properties of the unforeseen influence. "I lifted 85 kilos at the gym yesterday." "I just ran 7 kilos this morning." Both of these sentences make sense, and it wouldn't make much sense to assume the former meant anything other than kilograms, or that the latter meant anything other than kilometers. Likewise, it isn't really reasonable to have assumed I meant anything but the Planck length. Doesn't all theoretical physics begin with imagination? Granted, if nothing like this were to ever happen then it might be more aptly described as "Philosophical Physics", but the principle remains.
  9. I do, do not worry. Ahhh, I see, this makes a lot of sense. I thank you for explaining.
  10. Say you had two circles, each with a tangent shaded circle to their left. These images are identical, but if you rotate one of these figures upside down it becomes nonsuperimposable with the other, despite nothing having changed. What confuses me, is how enantiomers are any different. It seems like whether a chiral compound is D or L would simply depend on perspective; so what exactly is causing the difference on a molecular scale?
  11. I'm not sure where exactly we disagree? You're describing the same thing as me, but simultaneously telling me my description is incorrect. Even much of what we consider matter is empty space, in fact. On a cosmic scale, there is almost nothing but a bunch of quantum foaming. If there were an external influence capable of phenomenon such as this, there is no way that it could introduce such a vast quantity of mass without an uncontrollable spike in the Higgs field's energy distribution. This would throw the Higgs field out of metastability, all the potential energy therein would cascade into kinetic energy, causing every known thing to rapidly drop to the lowest possible energy state. In a situation such as this, it would be more or less unavoidable. I don't deny that a quantum physics event such as this is unlikely to actually happen, but I've already expressed the point of this topic and its introduction of unclassified influences into existing ones. I'm not sure why you're being so aggressive; it feels like you're trying to have an argument, whereas I'm simply trying to have a fascinating discussion. If we had a specimen from each of these scenarios, they would be very similar in many ways. However, the concept behind the question involves influences of a universal scale. It's less the properties of the maximally compact matter (although that is a great topic for discussion by itself), and more about how it and the influences preceding it would effect physics as we know it. I thank you for the assistance help. It makes sense that these would be the problems; I didn't talk to many people growing up, so I learned most of my language habits from the science I read, making it pretty easy (especially in a scientific setting) to speak without simplifying.
