  1. It's a real phenomena which is easily explained. We have an array of ways to measure sensory input, and a very intelligent brain that puts lots of data together very quickly. Claiming it's "unexplained" just makes it easier for people like Sheldrake to make claims like this.
  2. I think it's garbage. This is all explained by normal sensory behaviors. We have a really good field of vision, amplified by hearing that helps focus in the right directions. And of course we understand how it happens, it's not some mystical woo magic. Rupert Sheldrake?! Jesus, you don't need him to explain anything about science. You've heard all this before, though. You've posted this elsewhere and took it down when you got answers you didn't like. Are you arguing for this in good faith?
  3. Cheating, lying, and criminal behavior. Does that make him "successful" or does it make him dishonest? When you get people to do work for you that you never pay for, and inflate the value of your businesses to get favorable loans while deflating the value for tax purposes, your books look like those of a successful businessperson. But it's against the law. Is that being "successful"? At least until you get caught, I suppose, then you can lie about being persecuted for it. Does "successful" mean you aren't responsible for the things you say and do?
  4. Re careers

    What does a "consultant" do all day? 🙂

  5. I don't know much about incels. What I've heard leads me to think that these men are trying to fit in to a patriarchal society that often treats women toxically, but they themselves aren't typically aggressive or toxic. The aggressive assholes are able to attract many women, while the incel sits alone, believing they would treat a woman much better. I'm probably completely off-base here, but it seems like incels are too focused on the kind of women who like aggressive men (and are turned off by anything else). If they could approach the ones who are turned off by toxicity, they'd probably fare much better socially. Also focusing on whether or not you're going to have sex with someone may not be the best social strategy. And most importantly, if a woman doesn't want to have sex with you, you shouldn't need to tear her down to make yourself feel better. There is a small subset of humans who want to be around any of us, and an enormous subset that don't. Just keep swimming. Politically, I wonder if our education system can be overhauled to address many mental health issues. Something tells me that early monitoring and intervention could help with some of these problems. I was a big fan of Love & Logic courses when my daughter was younger. They emphasized that the younger the child, the more monitoring they get vs zero responsibilities. As they grow, you give them more responsibility and monitor them less. I think this kind of dedicated approach could reduce the number of children who get caught up in depression and self-esteem problems.
  6. ! Moderator Note Closing this for now, mostly because someone has reported every post with a counter stance to their own. It will take a while to sort this out, what with us being a volunteer staff and all.
  7. Isn't that the truth. It reminds me of the "skeptic" stance, "I question everything, so I'm always right". It's self-perpetuated bias.
  8. https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-mocked-rally-sharks-rant-las-vegas-boats-1910275 He wraps up the rant by saying, "We're gonna end it for boats!" ?????? It's going to be a long, hot summer of rallies, and I don't think he's going to make it without exposing his mental degradation even more.
  9. You made up the baryon sweep?! I was counting on this being real to remove the baryons my starship accumulates during warp travel. As my comedian friend Bob Meddles says, I didn't get to be a starship captain by living in a fantasy world!
  10. As long as you're not in a boat with a battery, because shark.
  11. ! Moderator Note Since you're just repeating yourself and soapboxing, and since this isn't science, I'm going to close this. Nothing about it can teach anybody anything meaningful about science. Consider another source of discussion.
  12. There's nothing persuasive about making claims you can't possibly be sure about. You simply can't know most of the things you're claiming, like the universe being eternal. As far as matter, gravity, and motion being eternal, we have evidence of a time when they didn't exist as we know them. And your Mother Nature reference is childish and lacks nuance, or any understanding of science. Why again are you looking for a science discussion if you clearly don't want to learn any science?
  13. jv1 has been suspended for a week for bringing up a topic they couldn't support before, again. You need to overcome objections when describing something that isn't mainstream.
  14. ! Moderator Note We're not doing this again. This speculation couldn't be supported before, and changing the diagrams doesn't change that fact. This is a waste of time and you've shown us this before, and your threads on it were closed, and you were asked not to do this again. Have a vacation, think about the rules you agreed to follow, and if you come back, we can discuss some science.
