1. ## A lingual theory of everything

Sam...although much of what you have posted I agree with...there is a few things I do not. Let's look at QCD Quantum Chromodynamics. In QCD...such Hadrons as Protons and Neutrons which have such Quanta as Quarks and Gluons...we know that the bond between two Quark/Gluon to another Quark/Gluon is at a state where the amount of force that exists within such a bond...will increase exactly to the amount of energy used to separate the Quarks. Because of this even if an INFINITE AMOUNT OF ENERGY were applied to separate two Quarks...the bond between the quarks would increase to an Infinite amount of Force keeping them together. Now given this aspect of QCD...if we look at the behavior of Quarks existing within Protons and Neutrons...such Quarks regardless of QCD must exist between a numerical minimum and maximum but at or between these numbers...QUARKS CAN EXIST NUMERICALLY AT WILL....as well such quarks are BLINKING IN AND OUT OF OUR UNIVERSAL REALITY. Here is where the Cold Hard Math Brakes Down...and other area it also brakes down is in Black Holes. Black Hole created Singularities have been studied and calculated and postulated till the cows have come home and even Steve H. has flip flopped upon the math on this more times than a pancake on a hot griddle.

2. ## A lingual theory of everything

You know...by kind of bringing up Pi....it allows me another example of the existence of Infinity. The calculation of Pi...and it is 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286....etc....to the infinite. To get the Circumference of any circle you take the Diameter...the distance between any one point upon a circle to another point directly across from it upon that circle...and to know it is directly across the line between the two pints must cross the direct center point of the circle as well as their distance around the circle in either direction will be the same. Anyways...you take the Diameter of a circle and multiple that length or assigned value to Pi...or 3.1415926...etc. This sum will equal the circumference. To find the Area of a circle you multiple Pi times the Radius Squared. The radius being 1/2 the Diameter. To find the Volume of a circular ball...4/3 X Pi X Radius cubed. To find the surface area of a sphere...4 X Pi X Radius squared. Now all these formulas were created by using a specific ratios of aspects of a circle or sphere and by assigning values known or represented...we get our answers. Now this is Cold Hard Math and is undeniable. It is specific and unchanging. This Cold Hard Math brakes down when we go into the realm of QUANTUM MECHANICS. We are used to having a thing having one specific Function and Value. We are not used to a Thing...existing as Two Things...or existing as not a thing at all. Most have a hard time even dealing with the concepts in Quantum Mechanics but just like the Cold Hard Math...they exist within our Universal Reality. The question is...does Quantum Mechanics just exist in our Universal Reality...or is it by it's very nature existing within Multiple Universal Realities? Split Infinity
3. ## Taking choice away

Well...where do I begin here? Well...I guess talking about the obvious. Human Beings are NOT designed by evolution to be strictly vegan in their nature. This is a FACT. Besides the large number of links I could provide to back this up all one has to do is look at our Canine Teeth designed for puncturing, tearing and ripping flesh as well as understand that...if a Human Being was not living in our Modern Era...where a person could buy just about...but not all...of the supplements necessary to replace the nutrients received from eating animals...that HUMAN WOULD QUICKLY DIE! Does anyone really think that a person living in say...1802...would live for any long period of time if all they ate was Plant Matter? Such a person would die in a matter of months. Humans are EVOLVED to eat both plants and animals. This cannot be argued. Now my family owns a now large company specific to the field of medicine and the most healthy diet a Human Being can eat is one where the menu consists of straight animal proteins...lean cuts...a wide variety of fruits and vegetables...whole grain breads and if one must...whole grain pasta...nuts, berries and legumes...and Olive Oil...as apposed to other oils or butters. It is also important to take a Multivitamin every day as to cover any nutrient issues arising from winter or lack of sun light as well as to be certain to have plenty of the B vitamins specific to energy utilization. Now although this next bit should be checked out with a persons doctor...having two glasses of wine or two beers or even better...two shots of low sugar alcohol such as Vodka, Whisky or Bourbon...has been shown to be good for a persons heart and circulation as it tends to remove plaque from the inside of arteries. All this will increase a persons life span but GENETICS tends to play a very large role in how long a person lives as well as how well a persons immune system works. The Immune system needs to get practice and the use of Antibiotic Soaps and Hand Lotions as well as the MASSIVELY HUGE MISTAKE that Mothers make when they take their children to the doctor every time the kid gets the tinniest sniffle...and asks the doctor for Antibiotics...which such parents almost NEVER have their kids take the entire regiment of pills over time...as soon as the kid starts to feel better the parents tend to stop giving them the antibiotics. Doing this creates SUPERBUGS. A COLD is a VIRUS and Antibiotics DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO KILL IT...but they can help with the Bacterial Infections that arise from Cold Symptoms such as a raw nose from blowing it and tissue rub will cause an opportunity for bacterial infection. Taking the antibiotics will help cure the infection but not kill the cold virus. When this happens either a kid not taking the full antibiotic regiment...as to not kill off the bacterial strain completely will allow the smallest amount of still living bacteria to evolve to being Antibiotic Resistant. As well...taking Antibiotics every time a kid has a cold...will make even the most common bacterial strains that we humans deal with daily...evolve into harmful strains. Next time you argue with a person who claims that EVOLUTION is a farce...POINT THIS OUT...as it is possible to watch Bacteria EVOLVE in just a few hours with a microscope as anything that does not kill any form of life...causes such life to evolve and become STRONGER. Now as far as how this connects to this topic...KIDS...those young humans who are rapidly growing in their very early years...NEED ANIMAL PROTEIN AND ANIMAL FATS. The children NEED this to properly develop...and without them things like a child's immune system and even their BONES...will not properly develop and under a Vegan Diet...such children will become sickly and underdeveloped. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO USE ANY NON-ANIMAL FOODS OR NUTRIENTS to prevent this. Split Infinity

6. ## Two mass hanging on a pulley

Vay...you do know that if the cords are Mass-less then there cannot be tension on the pulley...right? The whole purpose of this question is to show how there will be different tension based forces upon a pulley based upon the mass on either side of the pulley. Since Gravity is NOT A FORCE but in fact is an EFFECT regardless of what you or anyone else has been taught...we label Gravity as the Weak Force as a way to make it easy for people to understand. Force is defined as the INTERACTIONS OF QUANTUM FIELDS....This is true for Magnetism or Electromagnetism...as Quantum Particle/Wave Forms...in this case...Electron Orbital Fields....are the Quantum Field Interaction as Elements that can take on additional Electrons in their Orbital Electron Fields....will do so and in the case of EM...adding such Electrons by running an electric charge into a large metal disc on the end of a crane will allow the disc to grab on by EM to the steel roof of a car as the electrons flow into the empty orbits of the Iron based Steel and thus form an EM attraction bond. That is an Electromagnetic FORCE. If I were to hit a baseball with a bat I am forcing the bat into motion my Kinetic Energy and when the bat hits the ball and the ball shoots away...Hopefully out of the park! LOL! The Kinetic Energy Force of the Moving Bat...F=MA...contacts the Ball thus transferring that Kinetic Energy by the means of the Quantum Field Interaction as the Electron Orbital Fields surrounding the Atoms Nucleus' that make up the bat and ball repel each other as they are both negatively charged. The Bat and Ball actually NEVER TOUCH EACH OTHER AND NEVER COME IN CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER. The Electron Orbital Fields or the Quantum Fields interact with each other and repel one another causing the particles of Mass...ie...Protons and Neutrons....that give the ball and bat weight and substance....never come into contact. The funny thing though is that THE PROTONS AND NEUTRONS ARE COMPLETELY COMPRISED OF QUANTUM PARTICLE/WAVE FORMS and at their very smallest level of existence are completely made of ENERGY. So anything that is a FORCE...is specific to Quantum Field Interaction. GRAVITY is not specific to Quantum Field Interaction thus GRAVITY IS NOT A FORCE. We call it one to make it easier to understand but in reality....GRAVITY IS SPACE/TIME DIMENSIONALITY and specifically...AN EXPRESSION OF ONE DIMENSIONALITY in our Multi-Dimensional Universal Space/Time. So...this question has two objects of mass...one of greater mass than the other...and since the quantity of Mass is not given...and not to be a pain but you should have stated...Mass 1 has less mass than Mass 2. The way you said it...Mass 1 is smaller than Mass 2...means that one object is SMALLER IN SIZE...it does not tell us it is lessor in the amount of Mass. This is important when talking about a pulley as if one object is 100 cubic feet and the other is 10 cubic feet and they are hanging by a cord connected to a pulley...distribution of Mass can play havoc in a system of pulleys. Still...we have no idea of the comparative amounts of mass nor do we know the cord length nor do we know the pulleys configuration and even the weight of the cord...how the cord is attached to the objects...how in-line the hanging objects are due to distribution of mass...and in the REAL WORLD....WIND, TEMP, ATM. PRESSURE...ETC...ETC... So...there we are. Split Infinity
7. ## A lingual theory of everything

Sam...I am a bit confused here. I have been posting about how Non-Existence is not possible. Are you arguing with me? Split Infinity
8. ## Would it be correct to say that the presence of Probability within Quantum Mechanics and other areas of Physics, make PREDICTION impossible.

Prox...although you have posted an intelligent reply...you not getting it. The whole point of my telling this story as well as the point my Professor got across to me is that because these are statistical probabilities calculated for a specific action or event to happen that are so great in number to be on the edge of IMPOSSIBILITY....but yet because THEY DO HAPPEN....shows us that interaction, actions or non-actions with any particle or group of particles with another particle or group of particles existing in our Universal Reality....no matter how great the improbability....WILL OCCUR...as the Probability for an event to occur goes up to 100% over a long enough time period. At the same time...in the Quarter Flipping example...if I flipped a quarter...that was balanced....a Half Billion Times...the Probability for the next flip will remain at 50% for it to come up Heads for the 1 Half Billion and One time. There is a 100% Probability that a possibility exists for the quarter to be flipped 1 Billion Times and come up Heads every time...same for Tails. Thus since seemingly impossible things can and do happen all the time...there is a 100%PROBABILITY THAT A POSSIBILITY EXISTS that such things will occur. Since as I stated...if I was existing on an INFINITE LINEAR TIMELINE....I would have a 100% Probability of winning the Lottery. Since in a MULTIVERSAL SYSTEM Time is NOT LINEAR and is Non-Linear in it's Nature...there is a version of me that just won todays Lottery. Split Infinity
9. ## Can principles in the MACRO level give insights into the Quantum level (split from spin)

Mike....as to the comparison between the Macro-Universal Scale and the Micro-Quantum Scale....the level of difference and disparity is so great it is difficult for me to even type an analogy to show it. If we look at Quantum Chromodynamics...QCD...NOT Quantum Electrodynamics...QED...which I just had an argument with someone over because he confused the two...but looking at QCD...the ATTRACTION OR BOND that exists between Quark/Gluon to another Quark/Gluon...the Quanta that make up HADRONS...ie....Protons, Neutrons, Pions....is so great that when attempting to separate two Quarks...the amount of force between two Quarks does not diminish as they are attempted to be separated as the amount of energy or force applied to separate them increases all the way and up to INFINITY as the energy applied to separate would increase if possible to INFINITY. Thus such Quanta are forever bound as Proton or Neutron. Now there is nothing in the Macro-Universal Scale that can show us this type of behavior as far as attraction and even in the case of a Black Hole that achieves a state of Singularity...such a state...Singularity or One Dimensionality makes invalid the argument as such a Black Hole would swallow into it's singularity anything be it Matter or Energy and once swallowed by Singularity it never comes back out. Thing is...since we are now talking about Singularity....we are now talking about ATTRACTION at the Macro-Level that is no longer in the same Space/Time Universal Geometric Dimensionality thus it is not comparing an attraction or Bonding within our Universal Space/Time Reality as at the point a Black Hole achieves SINGULARITY...the Black Hole is no longer apart of our Universe as it has now become a DOOR OR BIG BANG EVENT creating another Universal Reality. There are no words or states or conditions that can either be compared or stated as similar between the realities of the Macro-Universal Scale and the Micro-Quantum Universal Scale. The two states and issues are INCOMPATIBLE and if someone ever does develop and understand how to use it...the UFT or Unified Field Theory....which is the GOLDEN BULLET to answer all question...have a way to connect the Micro with the Macro....and utilize Matter to Energy or Energy to Matter conversion....all the problems that exist in the world would END OVERNIGHT! It is that BIG!...and I am sure you know this. This is why I have stated again and again...no one is going to find a connection to the Micro to the Macro using a ONE UNIVERSE BASED EQUATION OR FORMULA. The ONLY WAY that I can see this being possible to develop an equation is to use a MULTIVERSAL SYSTEM. If Photons are existing as Particle and Wave and can travel at 186,282 miles per second...have more than one FUNCTION as well as exist as a VIRTUAL PARTICLE that is not bound by linear time as well as Photons exist at INFINITE POSITIONS within their WAVELENGTH so are everywhere along that wavelength thus existing both in LINEAR TIME AS WELL AS NON-LINEAR TIME. If Quantum Particle/Wave Forms can do that...and they DO...and our Photon exists....but doesn't...but does...at INFINITE POSITIONS WITHIN THE WAVELENGTH....thus is a Virtual Particle....HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE ELECTRON BE EVERYWHERE ALONG THE WAVELENGTH AS WELL AS BE SHOWN TO HAVE TWO OR MORE FUNCTIONS!!!??? Sorry about the cap lock but this is the KEY to EVERYTHING....and I know how much you would like to properly define EVERYTHING! Well...Mike...this is it! Split Infinity
10. ## A lingual theory of everything

I believe EVERYONE has something to contribute. No matter if what they say might seem right or wrong or impossible or possible...just by participating in a debate...others can learn and get ideas from many sources of information. Many times I will be on the other side of a debate and might be attempting to prove the impossibility or possibility of a concept...or perhaps just talking about the Probability either be it likely or not. In just about all these instances of debate...someone will say or post something that I will not agree with but it brings something to light in my mind that allows me to see either that issue or others in a different or perhaps better light. Split Infinity Mikey...the fact that there is a Mold...and per your picture...there is a construct that separates the molds...there cannot exist...NOTHING. I personally think it is impossible for a state of NOTHING or NON-EXISTENCE to exist. Remember...empty space....IS NOT NOTHING....there must exist Space/Time Dimensionality for empty Space to exist. Further...SOMETHING cannot be bound or have at it's boundary...NOTHING. By definition...a BOUNDARY is something thus our Universe is FINITE as we can see to it's edge....but after that...there must exist SOMETHING. Now that SOMETHING would not be at such a Universal Edge in the conventional sense as if a Universe was represented by a Balloon and another Balloon pressing up against it would be another Universe. This is sort of like M-Theory or Brane Theory...but the Branes existing do not exist in a connective Dimensionality like we view our Universe. Split Infinity
11. ## Can principles in the MACRO level give insights into the Quantum level (split from spin)

Mike...I gotta admit...I was wondering how you were going to fit in the nuke! LOL! That pic should be handing in the LOUVRE! Split Infinity

You know...our Universal Space/Time Dimensional Geometry just will not allow certain things to happen as well as not allow certain things to be observed. SR details a lot of the reasoning why behind this and it is folly to even make a chart using any concept of a craft and people within moving a any velocity faster than Light Speed or c. But just because it is impossible for any craft using a form of PROPULSION to reach or exceed 186,282 Miles per Second...as at even a quarter of such velocities Time Dilation and Relativistic Issues become apparent as well as as a Space Crafts velocity get's closer to c...the Space Crafts Mass get's closer to being INFINITE IN MASS....it does not mean that it is not possible to use a Gravitic Drive to either Fold Space/Time or travel within a Warped Field or Subspace. Let's look at Light or Photons...as a Light Wavelength travels through Space/Time...the Photons being a Quantum Particle/Wave Form have no mass and thus there is no increase in mass to the infinite....although Photons do have ANGULAR MOMENTUM. Still...Photons are existing as both Particle and Wave and as such are existing in a Non-Linear Time as a Wave Function. This alone shows us that by either being to access or be interconnective to specific Universal or Multiversal Space/Time Dimensionality...as Photons as such Quanta...do...the rule comes forth that Depending upon Condition or State...it is possible to achieve Light Speeds Velocity. Since this would mean understanding the UFT...Unified Field Theory...and thus meaning we would have to convert the Matter of a craft and the people within it...to it's very Quantum State and then transform such Quanta as Quarks, Gluons, Leptons, Mesons...etc....into Photons....then beam that to a specific point of travel...and this would still only be at a maximum velocity of c...and then at the reception point by the tenets of the UFT....convert the Photons back into the original Matter...we still have the problem of only achieving Light Speed as well as possibly killing everyone being beamed as conversion of the matter to energy and back does nothing to save the identity or soul if you will of a person. The better and quicker way which would not have Time Dilation issues as well would not be breaking the laws of Physics as the graphs that detail obtaining faster than light speeds are but fantasy...would be to Fold Space/Time or travel within a Sub-Space.

14. ## A lingual theory of everything

Pop...for Matter and Energy to even EXIST this Universal Reality we live in must have MORE than 4 Dimensional States. If we use the D-1, 2 and 3 as representing Length, Width and Height...and D-4 representing LINEAR TIME as without Linear Time there would be no movement thus there could not exist Electron Orbital Fields...but even just using 4 Universal Space/Time Dimensional States...NEVER MIND JUST TWO or 2-D...4-D would still not be enough Dimensional States for Matter and Energy to EXIST. You state you are an ENGINEER and I can understand that this does not mean being a PHYSICIST....still...there is NOTHING in our reality that is only 2-D and even 2-D Representations are incorrect. When a person uses paper and pen to draw out what they would state is a 2-D representation of something...even the REPRESENTATION that they are creating is in most likely a 10 or 11 PLUS Dimensional State....and our Universal Space/Time Geometry most likely exists as even more than 11 dimensional states. The Paper and Pen and Ink coming from it are all comprised of Atoms and the atoms are COMPLETELY COMPRISED OF QUANTUM PARTICLE/WAVE FORMS. An Atom which we know as Matter is comprised of Atomic Particles called Protons and in most Atoms...Neutrons...and the Electrons equal in number to the Protons orbiting the Atomic Nucleus in Electron Orbital Fields as both Particle and Wave. The Electrons are Quantum Particle/Wave Forms and are Energy but even though the Protons and Neutrons are Atomic Particles that have Mass...they too are comprised of Quanta such as Quarks, Gluons, Mesons, Leptons, Higgs-Bosons...etc...thus these Atomic Particles of Mass are completely made up of Energy as that is what Quantum Particle/Wave Forms are...Energy. As Energy...these Quanta exist as both Particle and Wave and for that to be so...4 Dimensional States are NOT ENOUGH DIMENSIONAL STATES for these Quanta as well as the Electrons in their Orbital Fields around the Atomic Nucleus to exist as both Particle and Wave....NEVER MIND JUST 2 Dimensional States as you refer to in the statement I have quoted above. So perhaps it might be possible for there to be another existing Universal Reality that has just 2 Dimensional States...2-D cannot and does not exist in our Universal Reality. Such a Universal State of Reality would not even be existing within our Universal Grouping of Divergent Universal States that would all be interconnective and Divergent from a single original Baseline Reality and Timeline. A 2-D Universal State would have to be a part of another separate Universal Grouping or Group and since a 2-D Universal State would not allow for the existence of either Matter or Energy nor would it allow for the existence of Linear Time...it could not even be connected or perceived from our Universal State. As far as the word and definition associated to it...that word being INFINITY...both the MATH and the LOGIC dictate that for Universal Conditions that allow for the existence of an OPEN ENDED NUMERICAL SYSTEM as well as an OPEN ENDED VALUE ASSIGNMENT which allows any numerical association to be used as a VALUE in BOTH DIRECTIONS...ie...-> -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 <+...thus INFINITY MUST EXIST. If Infinity did dot exist this would mean NON-EXISTENCE would be a reality. Since just the fact I am typing this...it proves NON-EXISTENCE cannot be a reality....INFINITY IS A REALITY. Further LOGIC upon this fact is that by your statement that INFINITY cannot exist...by logic....that would mean that there would be a LIMIT OR REALITY BOUNDARY to our UNIVERSAL REALITY. If that was true...at this supposed edge of EXISTENCE OR REALITY....there would exist...NOTHING. Now EMPTY SPACE/TIME...is not nothing as there must exist Space/Time Dimensionality for there to be empty space. If that were true then by logic and definition beyond this boundary there would be INFINITE NON-EXISTENCE. Thus since we exist and at the very least our Universal Reality exists....and since it is a fact that ENERGY CANNOT BE DESTROYED ONLY TRANSFORMED....there will ALWAYS exist the Energy and Matter that makes up this Universe in one form or another for their to be a relation or perspective upon the Non-existence that you would propose is beyond what we know to exist. By Logic...either way or any way you look at it...whether beyond our Universe is Infinite Non-Existence...or beyond our Universe there is INFINITE EXISTENCE or the Matter and Energy that exists in our Universe being transformed in INFINITE WAYS AND OVER INFINITE LINEAR TIME....BY LOGIC INFINITY EXISTS. It is undeniable...it is impossible to argue against it...it is apart of the very heart and construct of all Math, Science, Physics and Thought....INFINITY. Without it...we could not have a reference to understand at what point and value expressed have I stopped counting right now...1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6....SIX!...SIX wonderful frosty Beers! Waah! Ha! Ha! I LOVE IT! Say's the COUNT!...for those of you who ever watched Sesame Street. Split Infinity....p.s....Infinity split in half equals....INFINITY.

20. ## A lingual theory of everything

Well...that is another topic all together! LOL! Anything is possible. My point to Mike was...using the concept that in nature and by the natural laws of our Universe...when things occur...they do so by taking the path of least resistance. And thus using this we can extrapolate theories and models for prediction and probability of existence. We that would be all good and fine except we would first have to understand the probability and prediction models of CONDITION first. It is like saying...after looking at a model that I created to describe the predictability and probability of a Lotto ball cage being turned and over time a Fractal Pattern has emerged that reflects the imperfections in the round balls with the numbers...the Atm. Pressure of certain days as they apply to balls being pulled with certain numbers...etc...which allows me to PREDICT with a certain probability that certain balls will be pulled. Now for any of this to even be...CONDITIONS must exist such as the Lottery System itself...the chosen method of determining Lotto Numbers...etc. Split Infinity

23. ## What will extraterrestrial intelligence look like?

Species of E.T. that are Highly Intelligent would without a doubt be capable of developing anything from Robotic Probes to Androids that are sentient and self aware/self determinate. How can I say this with certainty? Because we Humans have already done it as far as the Probes and we are also very close if not already there in the development of A.I. Now as far as the possible Biological Forms Intelligent E.T.'s would have...this could be wide ranging but if they were species of E.T. that could achieve Space Travel...they would have to have either developed a form capable of building high tech spacecraft, or be a parasite that could control a host body where the host is not of the capability for such high tech space travel but the parasite could have the mental capabilities but lack the brawn ala...Stargate. There could also be a symbiotic nature of two or more E.T.species or even a CASTE system where there are a specific species used for every aspect of an E.T. society including Space Travel. It has been said that some E.T. races employ Bio-Mechanical Suits to visit other planets...ala...Independence Day. It has also been proposed that due to the realities and dangers of Space Travel...Androids are used to collect data. Split Infinity
