1. ## Prime Problem

I am not too good with prime number theorems, so I have no idea how to find a proof for this equation. Can you point me to a ceratin direction or give me a web site on the topic please?
2. ## Prime Problem

So would that in turn indicate that all prime numbers have irrational roots? And what's the reason that equation has no solution?
3. ## Prime Problem

Is there a particular solution to this equation: N=p^2/q^2, where N is any prime number and p and q are two intergers.
4. ## hey everybody

Hihi! Good to see you here, how are you?
5. ## Evolution for space

What about an organism that can absorb materials from space and convert them into energy for biological processes? It seems that space is full of yummy inorganic materials, if an organism were able to convert these inorganic stuff into energy, I don't see why it can't live in outer space. And about the water freezing problem, these organism can, in theory, convert inorganic material to heat, which prevents it from freezing. This creature seem too unlikely to be true.....
6. ## Uncertainty at Absolute Zero

I and someone was discussing something about entropy and energy transfer, etc. stuff when we came to the conclusion that energy can't be transfered from one isolated system to another. That we know. But can the isolated system transfer energy within itself? And can it if it's in absolute zero in the first place? I know that no motion exists at 0 K, so the isolated system should not have any energy to transfer at all. But according to the Uncertainty Principle, energy particles can pop up from all of nowhere and disappear very quickly. Wouldn't that cause energy transfer to take place? My questions seem confusing, isn't it? Well, please answer as best as you can.

Do you like psychology then? If you do, why not stick to it? If you do not really like it, then why waste your attention and money on it at all?
8. ## Four (or more) Dimensional Polygons

Is there such things as 5d shapes? Well, I would prefer to know some interesting properties of a hypercube.
9. ## Concept

I do not think the exact value of pi is still unknown is because we have limited instruments. I believe there's a prove somewhere that put pi at the realm of irrationa numbers, which should mean that it will never end in digits after the decimal. We don't know the exact value of pi is because its exact value does not actually exist, and its corresponding representation should therefore be remain imaginary.
10. ## Are Cartoons Bad for Children's Health?

I suppose my question was too general in prospectives; however, I think that was my point in this poll, to be considerate to all prospectives. One must conside all sides of something in order to make a conclusion on something, that's what I believe. And about the selling of mature games to minors, I guess the government is just being considerate to children's health, that's all.
11. ## Humans Vs. The World

What about the fact that we have emotions? I believe that alone separate humans from other known animals, since unless I am wrong, emotions are not programs in other animals' brains. Why's that I do not know.
12. ## Ethnicity

That's not really that long, since I read something about the next Ice Age being a few hundred years away. And a few hundred years is nothing, consider the fact that man had walk the Earth for quite a long time.
13. ## Placebo Effect

Hmmm...... Perhaps one can maximize the effect of Placebo Effect.... Could this effect be paraphased as: One can do anything if one believes? If it can, then I should be able to finally move my feet behind my head! Just a crazy thought......
14. ## Concept

I have a friend who mention to me today that he thinks that all irrational numbers are no more than concepts, since they don't seem to have any physical representation to describe themselves. If this is true, then what place does 0 and infinity fall in? It seem 0 is got to be a number since it's not irrational, but he said that there is no representation for 0 either. What's your opinion on the subject?
15. ## Are Cartoons Bad for Children's Health?

Personally I think cartoons are great for children's health since they are somewhat educational and at the same time entertaining. But I know there are people who thinks otherwise, so give me your opinion about this matter.
16. ## Ethnicity

Wouldn't the degree of separation be reduced as the world get smaller due to communication technology advancement? I suppose it could since people can know more people as this technology become better and faster. If this is true, when do you think everybody will know everybody in the world?
17. ## Have we sent a probe to Uranus?

That was rather funny, but I am also curious to know whether any probes reach Neptune and Pluto,and perhaps the outside of the Solar System.
18. ## Placebo Effect

Like the title said, what is the Placebo Effect? Can it really physically heal a disease, or is it healing a disease by thinking positively about getting better? And did I put this thread in the right place? If not, please move it to the right place.
19. ## Ethnicity

Also, I believe that English and German are more closely related to Hispanic since they are part Spanish after all. So yes, you are a closer cousin to your female friend than your Chinese friend. And the thing about the curly hair, I think it came from the Native American, since Spanish people do not have curly hair, or do they? I haven't really seen much pure-Spanish people.....
20. ## Four (or more) Dimensional Polygons

What's a glome? Do you mean glomerate? I suppose if they are all spheres, then there is no way it can possibly have a side.
21. ## Ethnicity

I believe it is separate from the rest of the world at the beginning of advanced civilizations, but I suppose it's no more since trade with Asia begins.
22. ## bar codes

There seem to be two kinds of bar codes in America, Uniform Code Council and EAN International(do not really know what EAN stands for). I think you should go to this page to find out more: http://www.adams1.com/pub/russadam/upccode.html
23. ## Humans Vs. The World

I think what make us different from other organisms is the fact that we have the ability to create goals and tries to achieve them by using existing methods and trial and error. On the other hand, other organisms' goals are mainly to ensure their survival. To conclude, what make us human is the fact that we have IQ to do things other than to make sure we survive. Just a thought......
24. ## Ethnicity

For the part about relationship with a Chinese friend, I do not think you are very closely related with him or her because Germans, English, etc. European are separate from the rest of the world since the beginning of recorded civilization. Thus we can assume that they branched off as soon as advance civilization begins. However, I think the Cherokee is a little closer related to Asian people because most Indians came to America from Asia through the Bering Sea(I think that's what it is, do not really remember). But I have no idea if those people are Russian or Chinese, or people from other places. In conclusion, depends on how many percent of you is Cherokee, the higher the percentage, the higher the chance of being a far cousin of your Chinese friend. Hmmm..... Learning American History really helps in this matter......
25. ## Ethnicity

What are the exact questions you want answers to? It doesn't seem I could find any questions that I can give an answer to.....
