### A "Theory" of the Universe

You know your theory is not that bad. After all, it is the only thing that can make something from nothing. Yet, when you have matter and antimatter equal zero when taking the sum of their masses, you should have zero again. I believe that matter and antimatter cancel out in contact. What would mean 'in contact' though, because we are talking about an area where space-time doesn't exist. In contact almost means in existance in this case. When these two things are in existance, they destroy each other, meaning that it would go back down to zero again. Therefore, perhaps antimatter and matter universes are not touching. Maybe it isn't in existance, maybe it really does mean touching each other. Yet, at the big bang, the singularity was 'touching', how does matter and antimatter spew out from the same place without destroying each other?

### How do you manually do a fractional exponent?

Thanks, that really helps. All I really needed was to know that x^1/2 is the same as [sqrt x]. But thanks for going into greater detail, now i understand it. As for the absolute value question, I was an idiot. Anyway, how exactly could you do something like this: 3^4!. I thought you just do the factorial than use that as your exponent. But then, I realized that you can't because PEMDAS says you do Exponents first, multiplication second. Would you do 3^24 or 81!? Would it even be either of these? Math gets really confusing sometimes!

### Does time go faster for an object moving faster?

I heard that einstein created a theorum about how at higher speeds, time moves at different pace. Does anybody think this is possible?

### Anti-gravity theory

Are you a scientist by any means, because i am only a 9th grader? Anyway, I wonder if you could give me a quick briefing of 'strong force', because i am working on a theory about how the universe began. It has come a long way. In the beginning, I included antimatter as a viable fact, than I disproved it somehow. I wrote a lot of notes on how it works, and who really knows if it is right, but if you could, i could describe my theory. I want to either prove or disprove it, I have done a lot of work on it and I can't seem to stop because I think it is right.

### 11 dimensions

I think that there are 11 dimensions, yet the only thing that has access to the others is gravity. Gravity is considered a weak force, but that is because it is often in the other dimensions. Gravity of a black hole, for instance, is well into the 11th dimension.

### Anti-gravity theory

Does such a thing exist? Can it? We probably can't stop it, but it seems very hard to understand. Gravity holds together the protons and neutrons of atoms nuclei, so how can antigravity work? What I have trouble with is this. Is there an antimatter? Maybe antigravity exists because that is how antimatter and matter relate. Maybe antimatter is gravitational to antimatter. Yet matter to antimatter is antigravity. In fact, is there a proven such thing as antimatter? I have heard mentions of it, but I wondered if it were proven to exist in the scientific community.

### What Do You Think, Are Photons Matter Or Energy??

my wife is studying a degree in oriental medicine and was posed the question

"what is energy?"

of course there are many philosophical answers to this but it seems that energy can't actually be defined' date=' only expressed in relation to other things (as the theory of relativity does).

so i'm wondering, if people here had to give a concise answer to that question, what would it be?[/quote']

I am a new member to this forum, and i have posted this many times on different threads, and I keep saying that I have developed a theory on the universal beginning and end. I define energy as a direct proportion with time. Matter is a direct proportion of space, seeing as how without space, matter can not exist, so without time, does that mean energy can not exist? I think without energy, it is the same as being without time. Without time, we would be frozen stiff, and the same would happen if we ran out of energy. So, to answer this, energy is a characteristic of matter to produce the space time continuum. In less scientific words, energy is a proportion of time. Not time itself, just a correlation of it. Because matter is not space itself, but a correlation of it. Hope you can use this

### Absolute High Temperature

Absolute zero has been deifined.

Is there an established "Absolute Highest Temperature" in the universe?

I imagine this was at the Big Bang' date=' but is there a constant limit to matter and energy now?

[/quote']

That makes a lot of sense, because all of the energy currently existant was packed within one atom that was even smaller than a current atom. So, I guess the absolute highest temp. would have to be the point where all of the energy in the universe is concentrated into one point. This would be the maximum existant temperature, but the question is more of "can the energy of an object be maxed out so that it can't be filled anymore?" Some type of limit, and absolute heat?

### How do you manually do a fractional exponent?

I understand exponents, I eventually figured out how you manually do negative exponents, but how do you do something like: 3^.4? How do you do something like: abs[3]^3? Can you multiply together absolute values? I am only in algebra right now, not even geometry, but nobody else even cares how they do as long as they pass, but i want to understand this stuff!

### Imaginary number intuitively?

I’m trying to get some sort of intuitive grasp if imaginary numbers..

Does anyone have any inkling whatsoever as what they might be like or any analogy that might give me some point to start from.

Or do we just send off our equations into the unknown and be happy when they return still making sense in the real world?

I ended up teaching myself about imaginary numbers. Here is a good way to do that for yourself. First take the basics: i = [sqrt -1]' date=' i^2 = -1. So, if you add a coefficient, you change it to ni, or for example: 2i. It really means 2([sqrt -1']), meaning 2 [sqrt -1] which makes the number imaginary. Here is the best way to apply it, just treat it like it is a real number, even though it isn't. 4i^2 equals -4 because you only square i, and i^2 is -1, so it is the same as saying 4 times negative 1. But if you do this: (4i)^2, you square 4 and i, which is the same as saying 4i times 4i. This makes 16i^2, which means -16. See, you can teach yourself imaginary numbers by applying what you already understand about real numbers. Try to figure out what i^3 is. Here is one even I haven't done yet, n^i. Good luck with them!

### 60% of Americans believe life exists on other planets

Absolutely. I remember reading once how likely it was that there were intelligent beings all over the universe' date=' even in our own galaxy, who simply didn't (or won't) survive their discovery of the power of uranium.

Most of our weapons progress along with our social abilities to keep ourselves from being wiped out by those weapons. But uranium means a millionfold leap in our destructive power which must be matched by a similar leap in our ability to avoid war.[/quote']

I have to say that theoretically, does uranium necesarily exist on a different planet elsewhere. I don't mean it couldn't, but If life were to develop from carbon, does it need uranium? It would probably contain carbon, water, oxygen, or maybe such a civilization could evolve to breathe in nitrogen and exist from boron. Does life seed from oxygen and carbon alone? We barely scraped the possibility of such things being true. Besides all of this, maybe if life developed connected altogether, the civilization would connect as one. Maybe there is no overall government, but an order of all life elsewhere. Do we know this for sure? No, but leave your imagination open to thoughts that others might consider far fetched.

### 60% of Americans believe life exists on other planets

I really wonder if the government truly knows something about it that they are not willing to tell. Why would it even hide something of such high regard. The government is made up of people just like us, and if stripped to nothing but themselves, they are also people. Why should certain people be let in on something we don't, simply because they have a government career? The people they run include them, even George Bush won't be in government forever, yet he is let in on something. It is seriously a load of bull!

### 60% of Americans believe life exists on other planets

What I wonder is how people can almost doubt it. It is true that the probability of life developing on earth even was slim to none. However, the universe is an awfully big place. Hell, the galaxy is an awfully big place. Should we even doubt that there is life elsewhere in the universe?

### Help Me Understand The Big Bang and Universe

The beginning of the universe is very confusing. But on some science project for school, I was looking up theories and I ended up developing my own. Some ideas have been thought of before, but all of these I deducted on my own, so I did not steal these Ideas. I really came up with it myself. If any spare time, ask some questions and see what you think about it.

What it says is that our universe was created in a vortex created by a

black hole. First, I have to say something which you may or may not

believe. I believe the universe doesn't truly have any physical

beginning or an end to it, it has always existed and will always exist.

Now,

let us say that there is a universe which has a black hole. This black

hole has gravity so intense that it even pulls light in. Now let us

say this, the same happens in a parallel universe (this is a 'far out'

theory, but it makes sense in the end.) Now, there has been another

question tough to answer, "what is at the edge of our universe?" This

has

probably already been thought of at least once before, but I believe

that the edge of the universe is a big area of Absolute Zero. What I

call it is the AZZ, for Absolute Zero Zone. Anyway, the black hole has

gravity so intense, it pierces through the physical dimensions, all the

way to the AZZ. This is hard to describe and I will state this in

greater

detail later. Each black hole is now within the AZZ. The gravity of

each end of the black hole is what brings them together, similar to a

wormhole, or Einstein-Rosen bridge. Now, the black holes on each end

bring in matter from their universe. The matter of each side is linked

together in the middle, causing them to collide at the speed of light.

In the guiness book of world records, the densist matter ever created

was two gold atoms shot at each other at the speed of light, creating

for an instant a particle believed to be as dense as a primordial atom,

the atom which exploded containing our universe. Now, the matter fuses

together, each side bringing in more and more matter. As the matter

fuses, it is within the AZZ. The matter fuses into a star inside a

black

hole. The black hole fuses the matter to create a great amount of

energy. At first, the universe may seem like a star. But as time

develops

and more and more matter is sucked inside, the star is fed, continually

fusing and expanding the new universe. After many years, the star

begins to spread its energy over such a large area. This area has

gravity

that in random segments, can clump, creating galaxies, stars, just

about whatever we have developed in our own universe. Now, once the

universe can no longer expand, what happens to a supermassive star? It

develops a black hole. Now what happens next? Does the new black hole

of

such great proportion suck up everything in the universe? If so, what

happens when the black hole is the only thing left? I believe that the

universe which previously existed has been emptied into its final black

hole into another one, creating a new universe with matter added from

another universe, or perhaps from a spiral galaxy. This ends up

becoming a chain of universes linked up in a net of black hole vortexes

and

universes, all within the AZZ.

The reason I believe that the edge of the universe is because it is

theoretically nothing. I related matter and energy to time and space,

and

developed something I couldn't believe I had never thought of. They

relate. Matter is not the same, but it correlates perfectly with

space.

And what would happen if time didn't exist? We would freeze in place,

right? Wouldn't that same thing happen if energy didn't exist. The

reason that AZZ exists is because it has no time and no space, so it

has

no matter or energy. Absolute Zero can never be reached because it is

a hole in the time space continuum. Matter needs time to continue

moving on, same as energy needs matter to exist. It would be like

space

had no time, things exist yet cannot be changed. What of time without

space? It would have nothing to continue, cancelling out the other.

Absolute Zero is not just a temperature, it is a type of physics. I

learned that if matter doesn't exist, energy has nowhere to be. So if

matter

containing energy were to theoretically exist in a zone of Absolute

Zero, it would come back with the same energy it originally had. No

energy would leak out because outside of it no matter exists to leak

to.

My conclusion is that Absolute Zero does not follow the laws of

conduction or convection. Therefore, Absolute Zero is not cold, it is

Absolute

Nothingness.

### Temperature

is there an absolute high temperature?
