  1. Hello Biggest question would be why? Well if your a super advanced species why would you want to come here. 1) natural resources 2) make way for a hyperspace way 3) humans make great snacks if it happen could be they'd destroy mankind, could be their so advanced they couldn't comprehend our primative weapons. Hence no defence and we win 'yeah' and 4) aliens make great snacks. or as to viral plague, recall H. G. Wells war of the worlds were in the end Earth virus' destroy the Martians. If you go to another world you'd need to have immunity to it's naturally occuring bacteria. I still believe space aliens took one look at us though our TV broadcasts, and decided to stay as far the hell away from us as they could. Except for those running Earth World Safari's, 'Yes come see the primative animals in their natural surroundings'. Mr D Sorta cynical, and going down from there

    Racial differences.

    Hello Seen some investigation occuring that human genetic makeup still contains earlier forms, and not just as related to humans genes being human. Sounds a bit odd but it is where you and say an ape share a common set of genetic code to help develope an opposable thumb. Due to evolution humans and apes have added futher genetic code to develope the thumb each species has. But the original code to still exists in both species. Meaning some far distant ancestory of a number of species most likely has part of its code embedded in all those species as a building block for further evolutionary developement. Such as how human fetus' have tails and gills during very early developement; vestage dna. So you might not de-Evolve, but you might halt a code at a simpler form, or redirect from the earlier point.

    Racial differences.

    Hello Basically there is just one race, the human race, that is sub-categorized into groups based on observable physical characteristics. Futher more most of these characteristics are physical differences derieved from climatic and geographical condiction under which the people developed. Black skin is simply contains more pigment than white skin as protection from the sun. As dark people moved futher northward into colder climates with less sunlight and colder temperatures, a lessening of pigment occurs to allow some minor absorption of vitamin E and C through the skin (not totally proven). Meaning there is a physical advantange to lighter skin in colder climates. Same for hair, as the coiled form of hair found amoung Africans today provide a superior form of blockage to the sun's rays than the thinner flat lying hair of Europeans. However straight flatter lying hair allows for a greater lenght of hair meaning it can hang down and cover larger areas of skin. More advantages in colder climates. Temperture playing a role in why Europeans tend to have a greater amount of body hair compared to Africans. Africans have wider flatter noses to allow for larger nostral passages acting to help cool the hotter air they would breath in, less contact with tissue. Europeans developed a more narrow pointed nose which creates passages that while wide bring the air into much greater contact with tissue. This results in the air being warmed as to is brought into the lungs, better for colder climates. Asian while many live in colder climates are a later arrival to those places, displacing the native inhabitants that did have more caucasion features. Also interbreeding lessened the physical differences. Mr D

    Time Explained

    Hello Gone so missed the first part of this, but seem to remember and old idea that time is merely changes in the state of energy/matter(speed, location, orientation...). Combined with a organisms means of percieving those changes. The past is a former state, the present the current state and the furture a prediction of a state yet unrealised. As to the perception part, time exists differently dependant on the organism. How a plant or house fly interprets time might be totally different than how a human experiences time, and individual humans would show some variation in their ability to interpret time due to physical differences between individuals. Also for items or organisms that can not detect changes no time exists. Any name or numeric value assigned to represent time would be the invention of the organism or species as a means to represent their interpretation for their preceptive range of state change. It would mean that in speaking of time you have to factor into an equaltion who's/what's vantage point you are speaking from. For no time to exist would tend to mean under such an idea that 1) no change in the state of energy/matter occurs 2) all states of energy/matter exist at the same time (human reference word), but organisms only percieve range limited to their species/individual 3)organism's are falsely percieving changes or misinterpreting changes to produce their conception of time. So if a beam of light, photons, are traveling in a wave pattern, if no concept such as time exist why would a wave pattern be produced. Since the perception of peaks and valleys denotes some interval has occurred between to different states? Should light then not be but a single line. Mr D Enjoying the optical illusions included, but doesn't that have more to do with optical formations and processing limitations in the human species. Still find them fun none the less.
  5. Hello No as listed above does not quite explain it. unless I take it, please feel free to elaborate as you said you first post is hard to analyze as to meaning in spots. Time already exists at all moments as a single line, people exist on this single line of time and can not alter it as it has already occurred; and they are only aware of a referrenced point on this single line, our for lack of a better term their current timeframe. Or do you imply time while it is a single line, time is not a single cohessive quantity and that time is attached to each individual components of the Universe. Meaning if a timeloop did occur it only occurs for the energy involved in the time loop and that all other energy continues in time. Also if you could explain: I go back in time and crush a can, I go forward come back to the exact same instant and do not crash the can. Then do the it again and this time throw the can. Under your theory only one of those actions can take place. It is the one that already has to get time to the place that allowed me to go back in time. So do you propose some means that once and action occurs it can not be changed, as what would there be to prevent the other actions if they are occuring at the exact same moment. Unless you argue all three did occur, which I take it is your theory. Mr D out till next mondays at earliest so unforunately will not be able to view or reply anytime soon. But as to your Theory that's already been decided. Must admit it'd be a damn bore if it is. Enjoy your weekend - but you already have/or haven't
  6. hello well I get the simplicity of your reply, but how does your explaination take into count time loops. You travel to the past, time advances till you traveled to the past. How does your system still manage to allow time to proceed forward into a future time beyond that of when you went back? also under said system if from if you sitting at your computer went back in time 10 seconds, are there two forms of your present occupying the same space sitting at your computer? did you become the older state of your energy, meaning you are the person from 30 seconds ago? And if that's true if you went back beyond a time you were born would you disperse into whatever form your energy occupied then? As in Theory the energy used to form you already existed then in a different state, so what is your explaintion for identicle particles of energy being able to co-exist at the sametime. Or if you went instead to the future, does that mean the future already exists with you having gone there. If so would that not mean every action taken has already been predetermined, negating any concept of freewill or self determination? Mr D
  7. Hello Was trying to take the 'Energy can neither be created or destroyed, but merely change forms' sort of idea into my time displacing. Thus you still occupy your time, even though in another, so you are neither removing or adding energy/mass in either time. Also was looking at the problem of time looping, as if I were actually to join the past time line. That would loop time as I actually removed the mass/energy that was myself. Time would keep going up to when I left, go to the past, time goes up to when I left then loops back to the past. If I take my time frame with me there is no loop, just that bubble of time, as it were, went with me and continues in its timeframe just located elsewhere. Meaning I could still rejoin my timeline. Mr D
  8. Hello Got how basically you have all instances of past time travel already occuring, therefore they did not change time but created it to form the present. But trying still to figure out how matter or energy, in his case you, could exist in the same location. Example you go back 1 minute and try to occupy the same location you are in now ( we'll fore go Earth rotation, orbit, galatic spiral all that stuff where you'd actually have to travel quite a ways to be in the same spot). How is it that the same energy can compose both you and the minute ago you? How does the energy that is you now co-exist with the energy that is you then? Could you both occupy the same space? Still figure the only way to carry that out is same space and energy but in different times, or at least the energy is existing simutaniously as seperate times within the same time line. Mr D
  9. Hello again Well perhaps co-existing, but non-intermingling time, would be a better term. Both times 1907 and 2007 existing at the same point in time physically, but the matter each existing in its own time frame. Mr D
  10. Hello Having fun trying to figure out a way to handle that pesky problem of time travel where you go back and kill your father. Most ideas put into solving this the idea of multiple timelines co-existing, which seems a bit over complicated so tried to think of a way less complicated. So how about this; not Time Travel but Time Displacement. You can go back in time, but in doing so you do not become matter in that timeline, but are matter from your own time displaced into the other timeframe. You may be in the year 1907 but your matter is still existing in 2007. Hence the energy that is, or will be you can share the same space, because you are not sharing the same time. Also you can not kill your Father or really change history in any way because though you are in that time, you are not part of it. Any action you are taking is not occuring in 1907, but in your displaced time of 2007. You could not shoot your father then because the act of you shooting is occuring in your timeframe,100 years in the future. What do you think, what other ideas have you got? Mr D
  11. Hello Well though I stated boredom as the reason to pose the question, the implication that this thread is only for entertainment purposes is of your own creation. If you read the originally posted statement it was more of what has been said, and what can you invent; including a possiblity of replies used to judge inventiveness as to contest. I saw no reason to include reference to scientific use as that was as you say not the entended purpose. And my conclusion (perhaps in error) that participants at this site would not be hampered by linear reasoning that occluded a multitude of ways to interpret responces. But I do thank you for participating, and the information gleemed. Mr. D Oh...btw my choice of the beginning verbage of 'am drunk again' comes from an old case decades past. Stemmed from a carved stone found in the Northeastern United States that found two historians arguing as to origin. One held firm it was from very early Native Americans. The other that it most resembled Nordic runes. In the end an assistant had placed the stone on a table and went to retrieve something. Coming back toward the table he noticed scrawled at a odd angle on the stone 'am drunk again this day' and a date in the very late 1600's. Seems you need to look at something from every angle.
  12. Hello In younger days I tended to see the universe around me as a rather complex place. But now with age (forced upon me without conscent) I see the Universe as a very simple place, simple parts, simple componants; which when combined can form complex objects and systems. And as such that's the beauty of the Universe, as with a few basic building blocks you can create about whatever's needed. Conversely that's the danger, complex systems can be brought down by fauilure or change in a simple building block. The object or system is only as strong as its weakest componant. What we have here is one hell of a Lego set. What say you? Mr. D 'Never a leader, just the idiot in the room'
  13. Hello Hmmm... try thinking about it this way for your more scientific angle, pychological and social analysis of mental reasoning. Why does a culture, group or person find they are able to to concieve of, or believe in these conspiracy theories? How does that reflect on the mental processing behind such reasoning, and from whence did that line of reasoning develope; is it cultural, education, political, or socially derieved. Listening to the conspiracy theories, folklore, and urban legends can open many avenues for insight into the thought process of people and cultures (plus aliens - they are amoung us you know). Mr D
  14. Hello Though you may work in a scientific field that work, and your life in general, is not conducted in a vacumn. The vast majority of science is carried out not so much because it is what would be the best for science. But because it is what someone is willing to pay to be conducted. This is related to political, social, and economic influences, and for you to operate effectively in this enviorment you should learn through your education in Liberal Arts (History, Literature, Sociology...) to better understand and gauge how these forces will effect your career in science. Mr D.
  15. Hello Think about River - size and volume Cave in - deepth of cave location and surrounding makeup of earth above the cave Mr D
