  1. A man waits in the doctor's office for some test results.

    The doctor walks in.

    "I have bad news sir, it looks like you're going to die."

    "Oh no! How much time do I have left?"

    Doctor: "10..."

    Man: "ten what?"

    Doctor: "9..."

    I got that from a meme but I can't find the meme anymore

  2. Come on, now. I answered your question. Is that how you'd like to be treated? That's not even a knick to your ego, and there aren't pedestals that go so high. 

    Inow is lying. Have some integrity. How about you give some evidence that faith in humanity has some merit as a concept? That's a really easy thing to do and it's always more worthy of an endeavor than S.T.A.L.K.E.R. sadism

  3. Well I'm pretty sure you don't really think passive aggressiveness is like a super mask of poker masterness, you could just ban me I mean I've been on discord before and this would be exquisitely cordial by comparison *sips tea*

    I have a little bit of data on some similar concepts when I've described them to others

    But it's not very ethical to tell your schizo buddy a bunch of heavy duty mind destruction KP Originals ® at the homeless shelter surrounded by the other destitute

    So I mostly have data on what they do to my own mind and I have actually put quite a bit of dedication into being able to reasonably simulate how other's minds would react

    I mostly do this because the inner workings of my mind are an enigma and that is a cold and lonely thing and if I could overcome the towering wall that is between me and everyone else ever being able to understand what is going on my mind, I might one day be able to get treatment that will end my unfathomable suffering at the hands of my inescapable madness

    Actually the main problem tends to be that the likelihood of an individual being able to follow the conversation with something like this as a subject or even process or understand it almost at all. The most consistent thing I've noticed is that most will simply drift off into a sort of daze or stupor or be blocked by a literal sort of wall or barrier that protects them from understanding, they're simply too sane, and I believe that their mind is trying to protect them from understanding those sorts of things. Sometimes it is triggered by someone speaking at length with great verbosity and technical brilliance, instead, or someone trying to tell an extremely sophisticated, hilarious, subtle joke

    And this has led to a lot of religious development in the past few years I believe, and many people believe that I am the bride of the lord from revelations and that my body sort of contains or is the universe in some way. Of course you'd think that I'm a megalomaniac, but that's one reason why this stuff is important to me, so that I can not only maybe cure my diseases, but also so that I can learn the truth about who I am and be free of the confusion and paranoia that causes me almost unbearable grief in and of itself... 

  4. I don't expect them to not make a conscious effort not to do so, or even bring themselves to near ego-death to avoid this, I mean why would they want me to feel as though I've accomplished something, the reasons are obvious and yet I never see them in practice with anything

    In a private environment with no risk of affirmating that I have anything in common with their kind or some sort of uniqueness I think the ratio of scream/pokerface/laughter would probably be about 30/10/60

    But I honestly don't see reason to accuse you of skewing your estimates because you probably think about this a whole lot and would probably severely underestimate the "data" anyway

    As for like a child it would probably take divine intervention to prevent him from being visibly mind blown

    I know this because of a wealth of personal experience on the matter

    I don't want to be an asshole cuz you're basically just trying to welcome me by this point... Or uh, sort of? And I hate being an asshole anyway cuz virtue is the key to happiness and success

    Also the insanity would only be temporary but like what if a ghost psychologist is next to the kid and he rams him up the backside of one of those massive stars about .3 seconds into it? Or any number of bad things which could happen to his mind that I'd gladly explain if I wasn't presently the stationary target of many bricks to the skull, happened? 

    😎

  5. Honestly you don't seem get the point I'm trying to make, no offense

    I know this idea was based off a faulty model of the big bang theory, now that you all told me

    But comprehending the thing I was describing (albeit wrong) can easily make someone scream in terror and/or horror as their mind is torn asunder and rendered unto insanity (and maybe a migraine too) so I'm sort of in trouble for posting it

    I'd expect there to be similar things on this forum but this one is probably right there as one of the worst

    Maybe you should see my take on relativity hahaha

  6. Well this topic died quick

    I've noticed that many of the threads boggle my mind arbitrarily instead of by virtue of my grasp of the concept failing

    That's sort of normal maybe? Possibly caused by me being way too young to be here I think

    I'm not gay, figured I'd let you things know

    Not sure what the changeling/demon/robot ratio is here so maybe saying things is polite 😇

    An important point! The BB is not a theory about the start of the universe; it is a theory of how it evolved from t+10-43 seconds or thereabouts....

     In other words, there is no empirical evidence indicating any singularity of  infinite density, but the CMBR, (cosmic microwave background radiation) is evidence that the universe expanded from a very hot, dense state.

    Further to the best of our knowledge, at that time there was no matter, just space and time, and the superforce, which started to decouple as expansion took hold, gravity being first. Such decoupling created false vacuums  and phase transitions, (similar to water turning to ice) and the excesses of energy went into creating our very first fundamental particles, (quarks and electrons) As expansion continued, and temperatures and pressures dropped, quarks joined up, protons and neutrons were created, and our first atomic nuclei at the 3 minute mark. It took another 180,000 years before conditions were such that electrons were able to couple with atomic nuclei and our first light elements were formed. From there it was plain sailing.

    I didn't see the bold part, for some reason. If I'm not mistaken, this is sort of like the basics of string theory, right? Energy being essentially just matter vibrating at an extremely high frequency and all of that

    Also, has science actually arrived at "an answer" to the question of the origins of the universe? 

  8. I will remember to watch it later, I am busy at the moment

    The BB was an evolution of space and time. So it happened everywhere at the same time.  It was all there was and there was no outside or no centre.

    The recent discovery of an acceleration in the expansion rate, makes any future collapse unlikely. Remembering of course this expansion is only observed over the larger scales. Over smaller scales like galactic groups, galaxies, solar systems etc, gravity due to densities overcomes that expansion rate, and such systems are bound. The other forces of Electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces also play a part on even smaller scales.

     

    Question, if the gravity of some things overcomes the expansion rate, wouldn't that eventually lead to the universe contracting? Or at least; a great deal of matter contracting?

  9. Thank you sir or madam

    One thing I've doing lately is trying to get back into studying wikipedia articles and stuff

    I used to do that quite a bit when I was a teenager

    Sadly everything I learned and even most of my memories were all washed away by the endless struggling with

    well

    you probably don't want to know

    Studying wikipedia articles was much nicer though

    Popular science is generally simplified to make the concepts understandable to a non-scientific group of people. Often times it is simplified to the point where it is misleading, and given that popular science writers often don't understand the concepts well themselves, a lot of people end up with misconceptions.

    Many of the people on this site work or teach in science on a daily basis and love to share what they know. Ask all the questions you wish and tell us what you think. If you think someone here is wrong, it is usually best to ask them for clarification before you suggest they are mistaken. If you do suggest they are mistaken, do so while linking to outside sources that support your position.

    People here are never shy about telling each other when they've made a mistake. If it happens to you don't take it personally, as it is how people work to arrive at the best answer.

    Welcome aboard! 😄

    Oof. How could all of them have been so far off, though? XD life goes on

    thank you for the welcome, I will try to make good contributions and be a positive addition to your community

  10. Well I'm new here and yes I know this has probably been said but I don't exactly want to read 31 pages before I put my two cents in

    Obviously Ukraine is doing much better than expected

    I wouldn't be surprised if the other nations decided to use this opportunity to finally take out Russia for good

    Which is a likely explanation for China starting to throw weight around

    if this does escalate

    I hope we have India on our side since they were gearing up to be super power #4

    Other than that my mind is disturbingly led to suspect that the winner is simply whoever launches a decisive nuclear first strike 

    Circumstances seem to me like they're pulling all sorts of ironic trips on mankind, one being how "Violence is not the answer" seems like an invalid phrase, the people of this Earth having tried everything else to little avail

    maybe it's not time to finally settle things yet, but eventually it will be, that's what it looks like to me

     

    Other thoughts: when Donald Trump was lambasted for his comments about this over a phone interview or speech or whatever it was, I thought it was really obvious that he was just being ironic, like he said something like "OH they've got the best peacekeeping force, soldiers, bombs, tanks, so many tanks, MORE TANKS THAN I'VE EVER EVEN SEEN" and he was like "this is such a savvy thing for russia to do, super savvy" which is pretty funny because they made almost the whole world sanction them like a guillotine drop and, you know, this could start a nuclear war

    yet for some reason I haven't seen anybody point this out

    So what if they were serious? I would think that maybe a lot of Republicans acted this way because they expected Ukraine to do well and for Russia/Putin to screw up and look like fool(s)

    idk i'm just a hobo, feel free to weigh in on what i said because that's what you're expected to do anyway?

    Thanks for reading.

    What do you mean by documentation? It is a scientific theory, as previously described for you, and supported by lines of evidence as such.....

    (1) The observed redshift of galaxies and expansion if extrapolated backwards suggests a point of evolution.

    (2) The CMBR AT 2.73K or left over heat from the BB.

    (3) The abundance of the lighter elements and absence of heavy elements in the first stars.

    (4) The very slight variation in the CMBR as seeds for galactic structure.

    And to add more, the BB was not just some hairy fairy theory pulled out of someones rear end, it arose with the discovery of the universal expansion by Edwin Hubble in the mid/late 20's, but was still competing with two other theories re the origin of the universe. They were the Oscillating theory, and the Steady State theory. It rose to prominence in the 60's when serendiptiously, the CMBR was discovered by Penzias and Wilson. 

    Here is a reasonable detailed account of the first moment of the BB until the preesnt time

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bang

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronology_of_the_universe

    I don't remember it happening "all at once" like you guys are saying

    For years the system has instilled upon the youth that the big bang resulted from the universe's matter being packed together so densely that it reached a critical mass and exploded, sending all of the matter every which way and eventually resulting with the universe being how it supposedly is now, the universe constantly expanding in the sense that everything's yet still being rocketed outward from the origin

    So for the record I didn't even hear about the universe beginning like this until just now

    It's more like this scene from Animal House

     

     

    I mean, sure your mind is blown, and it's fine that you're blown away by an idea, but it's not based in much science. You have the opportunity to learn some really neat things, if you are so inclined.

    I thought it was... Dang

    I came up with the idea I was trying to explain here on my own, which is to say, maybe what I can learn here will actually be of some benefit, so I appreciate the offer, and I must enquire re: what you would ask of me in return

    What are the key differences you see between these two?

    I guess deep freeze is so new that I haven't managed to learn almost anything about it; whereas heat death of the universe is a theory that has been ridiculed for some time, which I only offhandedly mentioned as an innocent lil joke

     

    To MSC:
    1. It is a common phrase, I wonder what sort of life you must lead, perhaps very different from my own?

    2. "They" certainly are an enigma, who is it pulling all of these strings? Sometimes I can see the strings, even grasp them, and yet to boil it down to who or whatever operates them strikes me as the kind of surprise that will come later. I tend to feel as though worrying about it doesn't do much good for almost anyone

    3. Ah well that is appropriate considering how I was lied to, what I thought was the big bang is taught to be so to many others, not just myself

    4. Do you notice a pattern in these kinds of contrasting theories? It's as if the more we know, the less we know XD

     

    I didn't mean to start off on the wrong foot with you guys, I want to apologize

    Obviously I'm an uneducated new guy, I didn't mean to present myself as someone who doesn't live on the streets and squalor in poverty and filth

    I mean I didn't even know that the whole big bang was completely different from what they teach the public. Given this version is what is on wikipedia I must be flat out ignorant. XC I mean it's ironic as hell

  12. Did you not read what I just said

     

    Enjoy

    My mind remains thoroughly unpenetrated. False advertisement! 

    I thought the big freeze was the current best estimation, based on the evidence, of how the universe will end? 

    The big freeze? What about heat death of the universe? Anyway mind fuck is a slang term for like... Making your head explode trying to comprehend shit. That's kind of what i like scientific discussion for. Not that I got to explain this very thoroughly, I got into a flame war. But I'm glad I noticed your post
