  4. Entropy and the arrow of time - the most misunderstood aspect of statistical physics and the bain of all property landlords. Maybe I should organise some lectures on statistical phsyics, entropy and the unavoidable fact that things age aimed at landlords?

  5. I think this forum is softer in its tongue or better than other ones which I have visited up to now, I detected some forums are quite irrespective that almost everyone uses insultive or bad expressions , so I will check this forum's rules in order not to take any reminding from editors.and I apologise if I did do sth. wrong..

      I'll have to think about how to communicate these ideas - maybe with more simple examples. Amazingly the 7 dimensional cross product is an algebraic example of a pre-Courant algebroid

  13. I'm no professor in ethics, but I certainly think that when you tell a student of yours that "ah well, I know you, so don't you worry", concerning selection for teaching assistance, whereafter you let your assistent know the student he hasn't been selected, you've made a huge ethical mess.

  21. For any psychologists, psychiatrists or anyone with interests in psychology, what about this statement? "Anyone who is convinced that he/she has a depression, does have a depression."

      Does the medical profession see the differnece between being sad because your life actually does suck, and the state of a chemical inbalance in your brain that means that you feel sad even when your life is actually good? You see this is what I am unsure of.
