  1. Thanks for the replies! Work on book sidelined by home remodeling... I'll check all this out in hopefully a few days...sorry. Sensei--how do I contradict? You seem to have an amazing application...but I need something I can play with. Forget map showing Great Attractor...I forgot we can't see in that direction (unless I'm behind the times). Thanks, Rusty Oh...I meant 400 million lg.
  2. Hello, I'm a sci-fi author and need to plot a course with distances and galaxy (cluster and super cluster) stop overs between the Coma Wall, Earth and the Great Attractor. I've looked at a few online 3D universe maps and 2D maps but have not found anything ideal. Any suggestions? Thanks so much for any help you can offer!

  3. Hello, Can there be quantum fluctuations within a singularity? Thanks, Rusty
  4. Hi, Hopefully this is the right topic for this... I've studied quantum physics and cosmology as a hobby for 20 years reading books like 'A Brief History of Time', 'The God Particle', 'The Road to Reality', etc. --in other words I don't really know snot. Never the less (and of course!) an idea has come to me that solves a lot of proglems. It kind of turns things around but it seems nice, neat and logical. Its not completely original and of course it has to be completely wrong LOL, still I wanted to post it to have it formally torn down. But it's summarized in 4 pages of bull
  5. Dear insame_alien, Actually I assumed most people would have heard this. This claim stemmed from Bekenstein and Hawking's conjecture regarding the total amount of information held by a black hole was equal to the total area of the event horizon (loosely stated). It is also related to Holographic Universe ideas. The statements concerning a sphere I heard in an audio lecture and also read in a book but at present I am at a loss as to which lecture and which book. I will try to locate these or other sources. Sorry! Rusty
  6. Hello, I have heard the following from several places: The amount of information that can be stored within a sphere is equal to the amount of information that can be stored on its surface. This seems like a contradiction or, a self-defeating statement. It seems to instead say that a sphere can hold an infinite amount of information. For example: Since the amount of information you can put within the sphere is equal to the amount you can put on its surface… just put the information on its surface… then, with the interior of the sphere empty; put a slightly smaller sphere withi
  7. Hi, Even though it is called 'vacuum energy'... do we know or do we have some theory on... whether the activities of virtual particle pairs is the same whether in the relative vacuum of space or... with in ther Earth's atmosphere (where tests confirmed it) or... say inside a rock? Rusty
  8. Perhaps 'critical review' was the wrong wording... really I see no flaws, just different handling, some better than others, this one being the best imoh. And I was not cleaver enough to design that post as a 'test', just careless enough to get it all wrong. r Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedThis was one of two really embarrassing posts I made--my only excuse, lack of sleep. Apologies to anyone I offended, I can’t say what I was thinking and obviously didn’t know what I was doing. r

  10. I got this idea and asked this question (do atoms flicker in and out of existence) because of a video I saw which seemed legit and talked about string theory, branes, and m theory. It showed atoms flickering in and out of sight and said that scientists were puzzled by this and one possibility was that the atoms were flickering between 'higher dimensions' or 'other worlds'. In this video a spooky female voice talked over clips from the elegant universe and other videos and constantly came back to a question mark with a black background which represented and was called 'the singularity'. In t
  11. Hi, Several days ago I started a new thread on six different science forums (including this one) entitled: “(the furthest we can see - the smallest we can see)/2=radius of Earth!” It made a claim based on half a dozen ‘inaccurate’ values for the most part (one or two values which would have been obviously wrong happened to be correct). The responses of each forum were very interesting. The forums involved were: http://www.physicsforums.com/ http://www.thescienceforum.com/index.php http://www.scienceforums.net/forum/index.php http://www.sciforums.com/ http://www.sciencechatforu
  12. Thanks! What about my first question (see OP). Rusty
  13. Hi, I've heard that atoms 'flit' in and out -- there, then seemingly gone, then back again... and so on. Is there any truth in this and, if so, what causes this? I've also heard that electrons and quarks are 10 to the -18 meters (or 1E-18? ...I don't know how to get superscript here so I can't use the proper notation). I've also heard that electrons and quarks are one dimensional 'point particles' that have no real size. Which is it or... what is it thought to be. Thanks for any help! Rusty
  14. Hi mooeypoo, No... I'm talking about actually 'see' using current technology. http://en.dogeno.us/2009/09/first-captured-image-of-electron-clouds-inside-one-atom/ Edit: I tried plugging in the size of the nucleus, protons, quarks/electrons, planck length/strings... nothing exciting. Edit: How embarrassing!! My spread sheet has a huge error in it regarding the radius of the visible universe!
