  1. Is this at all related to the relationship between two objects one of which goes behind the event horizon of a BH and the other that does not? (I thought I saw that scenario mentioned quite recently somewhere on the forums)
  2. How would you organize the collection of spacetime intervals intervals so as to potentially turn them back into a reality? Would you have a local origin(the start of the first interval) corresponding to the apex of a light cone?
  3. Is there a silver lining to be drawn from the current situation? Are the opponents to concerted action based on scientific understanding who have shown their hands on this occasion broadly the same group we can expect to be digging in their heels when it comes to any action at all when the time comes (of course it has come but seems to be being deliberately ignored-eg the windmills in Texas ploy) Are we getting any closer to a very widespread acceptance that we are all in this together in a very shallow pool or has the populace shown themselves to be ready for more snake
  4. Is that the same thing as differentiability?
  5. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-55760673 "Google has threatened to remove its search engine from Australia over the nation's attempt to make the tech giant share royalties with news publishers" Google appears to be flexing its muscle against Australian plans to make laws that will affect its position . Is this tenable? Google is accountable to whom? Its shareholders? Any legal requirements? More generally ,what is the responsibility of multinationals to the countries that they operate in?
  6. It has yet to be substantiated that he was "really" in J.C.MacSwell's dream. This may be premature speculation but my "Cheney" was the MigL version.

  8. Agreed but the point (not so salient perhaps) I was trying to make is that ,for him the blow is softened if he can move to another platform with less followers as his future status (as a leader of a political -to be kind- grouping) will probably still be able to thrive equally well with that reduced amount of publicity The problem with Trump is those who use him for their ends. Hopefully those who oppose him and his loose "political" grouping will be able ,if required to use his presence in a way to further their ends (eg he can be used as an example) Well .it might matter if
  9. Is this banning of Trump just a stopgap measure ?(and a response to his incitement to anti democratic insurrection,as well perhaps as a wish to disassociate themselves from further incitements) Won't he find another outlet soon enough? Since he will no longer be President he won't need the amount of followers he has now . The whole question of regulating social media is a huge question in itself. I have always thought that heavy accountable moderation should be compulsory. Other than that the only opinions I have are (obviously) that this is a
  10. Well,yes. As to whether that can be achieved I am doubtful ,but I don't claim any expertise to make that judgement. I am hearing that very few Republicans are pressuring him to resign..... And I have heard arguments that impeachment should be used to set a precedent even if chances of success may not be great.
