  1. You've missed the point I think. I'd like to hear from some others first.

    did you see greg's link ?

    " See Pendulum Clock on Wikipedia for more information. ",

    Pendulum clocks must be stationary to operate; any motion or accelerations will affect the motion of the pendulum, causing inaccuracies, so other mechanisms must be used in portable timepieces. They are now kept mostly for their decorative and antique value.


    Local gravity

    Since the pendulum rate will increase with an increase in gravity, and local gravity varies with latitude and elevation on Earth,

    The pendulum swings with a period that varies with the square root of its effective length

  2. One observation I've unofficially made over the years here is that science is really difficult. It has so many overlapping layers of prerequisite knowledge! It's hard to get past a certain level of physics without a great deal of math, and chemistry becomes more necessary the further you study biology.


    (everything is relative)


    there's even experts that fall victim to this.


    you need some sort of understanding of a quark, to have some sort of understanding of a quasar.

    (and everything in between)

    " are genes information ",





    " What's a Gene?

    In 1909, Danish botanist Wilhelm Johannsen coined the word "gene" to describe Mendelian units of heredity. As researchers learned more, they began to define genes as a segment of a DNA molecule that contains information for making a protein or, sometimes, an RNA molecule. The term continues to evolve as scientists learn about the complexities of molecular interactions. Listen to some well-known scientists respond to the question, "What's a gene?" ",


    plus videos from actual reputable scientists respond to the question








    Information, in its most restricted technical sense, is a sequence of symbols that can be interpreted as a message. Information can be recorded as signs, or transmitted as signals. Information is any kind of event that affects the state of a dynamic system that can interpret the information.


    As sensory input



    Often information can be viewed as a type of input to an organism or system. Inputs are of two kinds; some inputs are important to the function of the organism (for example, food) or system (energy) by themselves


    As an influence which leads to a transformation



    Information is any type of pattern that influences the formation or transformation of other patterns.[6][7]

    for example, DNA. The sequence of nucleotides is a pattern that influences the formation and development of an organism without any need for a conscious mind.

    Systems theory at times seems to refer to information in this sense, assuming information does not necessarily involve any conscious mind, and patterns circulating (due to feedback) in the system can be called information. In other words, it can be said that information in this sense is something potentially perceived as representation, though not created or presented for that purpose. For example, Gregory Bateson defines "information" as a "difference that makes a difference".[8]

    If, however, the premise of "influence" implies that information has been perceived by a conscious mind and also interpreted by it, the specific context associated with this interpretation may cause the transformation of the information into knowledge. Complex definitions of both "information" and "knowledge" make such semantic and logical analysis difficult, but the condition of "transformation" is an important point in the study of information as it relates to knowledge, especially in the business discipline of knowledge management. In this practice, tools and processes are used to assist a knowledge worker in performing research and making decisions, including steps such as:

    -reviewing information in order to effectively derive value and meaning

    -referencing metadata if any is available

    -establishing a relevant context, often selecting from many possible contexts

    -deriving new knowledge from the information

    -making decisions or recommendations from the resulting knowledge.


    Stewart (2001) argues that the transformation of information into knowledge is a critical one, lying at the core of value creation and competitive advantage for the modern enterprise.

    The Danish Dictionary of Information Terms[9] argues that information only provides an answer to a posed question. Whether the answer provides knowledge depends on the informed person. So a generalized definition of the concept should be: "Information" = An answer to a specific question".

    When Marshall McLuhan speaks of media and their effects on human cultures, he refers to the structure of artifacts that in turn shape our behaviors and mindsets. Also, pheromones are often said to be "information" in this sense.

  4. Genetic code



    The genetic code is the set of rules by which information encoded within genetic material (DNA or mRNA sequences) is translated into proteins by living cells.

    this last link is probably the best source at this point in time,


    The Human Genome Project (HGP)





    there's also these sites also,


  5. then you are mistaken since genes are chemicals not information...

    according to wikki,




    Genes hold the information to build and maintain an organism's cells and pass genetic traits to offspring.

    according to news-medical.net



    Genes are the working subunits of DNA. Each gene contains a particular set of instructions, usually coding for a particular protein or for a particular function.

  6. your own lack of even a basic understanding of evolutionary theory.



    There are comments which are clearly directed at another member in person (claiming lack of understanding or ability to understand) rather than at any argument - they are not acceptable.

    If you have been misunderstood - then provide explanation rather than assert another member's lack of ability to comprehend.



    A report was made asking how telling someone that they lack comprehension is offensive and to provide a source.




    Speak to or treat with disrespect or scornful abuse.



    A disrespectful or scornfully abusive remark or action.


    Telling someone that they lack basic comprehension falls pretty solidly into the disrespect column. And whether or not you think it's offensive, we (staff) do and so do the people you directed the comment(s) to, so you'd do well to keep it in mind in future.


    Hmmm weird.

  7. this argument is starting to sound very familiar,

    familiar as to a known crank/ " troll " (what ever that means, funny word) on another site.


    but i do have to say,

    i read contradictions that were never realized by the individual.

    and is continuing to do so.

    for me,

    this conversation is done.

  8. I notice you didn't provide a link to that, I think you're taking a couple of liberties.


    a link to a dictionary ?

    do you not have access to one ?

    i'm sure your pc has one.



    and also,

    it's meaningless and irrelevant to anything what you think about me. smile.png

  9. Oh god he's a conspiracy theorist.

    not at all.



    Show me where it's written down officially.



    time [tīm]

    n (plural times)

    2. period with limits: a limited period during which an action, process, or condition exists or takes place

    5. time as causative force: time conceived as a force capable of acting on people and objects

    9. period needed: a period required, allocated, or taken to complete an activity

    13. interval: a limited but unspecified period

    18. somebody's lifetime: a period during which somebody is alive, especially the most active or productive period in somebody's life

    and that's just a dictionary,

    there's tons of data on this as i'm sure you know,

    again, many classifications of.

    but i will also say,

    i understand your point.

  10. /start sci-fi rant


    No it's not. Sure series like star trek have demonstrated iPad style touch screens and thin portable tablets. But at the same time we have yet to invent warp drive, shields, phasers, and transporters. This is the problem with sci-fi foke they purely focus on the few tid-bits that have appeared, and seem to forget all the stuff that hasn't. We don't have warp fields, anti-matter reactors etc. The list of technologies invented for the series is much longer than the technology that has appeared.


    Then there's sci-fi such as star wars. I mean come on, the force? Might as well give the Jedi wands and robes. Sci-fi makes stuff up as and when it needs too. Some authors do base their work in good old science, and then twist it into whatever they need to tell the story. Need I also remind you that series such as superman is science fiction? A solor powered man who can drag planets from orbit. Yeah ok, that's going to happen. Also if superman did throw a punch at full power he'd basically cause a sizable nuclear explosion.


    /end rant on science fiction

    it appears what is known is only what is allowed to be known to the public


    What you are actually describing isn't time but a biomechanical process. At best you're describing the transition of high entropy objects that break down into low entropy states.

    and this is what is classified as time in the many classifications of it.

  11. Don't confuse science fiction with proven fact guys.

    sci - fi can be real more than you think.

    Time has no governing factors, or all controlling influence over matter....

    ......and there is absolutely no evidence to the contrary.

    birth ------> death,

    beginning -----> end,


    either way, this is time.


    and we are in the flow of it

  12. God Particle



    CERN's work can bemuse neophytes, but the researchers find ways to make it simple.

    "Everybody knows what an electron is, especially if they put their finger in an electric socket," joked Pierluigi Campana, whose team has just provided the most exhaustive confirmation to date of the Standard Model, the chief theoretical framework of particle physics conceived in the 1970s.

    They achieved the most accurate measurement yet of a change in a particle called a Bs, showing that out of every billion, only a handful decay into smaller particles called muon, and do so in pairs.

    For the experts, that finding was almost as thrilling as tracking the Higgs Boson—nicknamed the God Particle.

  13. hello mod,


    Changes made thanx,


    God Particle is used by CHERN in a creation context so it is allowed to use it. It's origin of usage is unknown


    His tears condemned my colors which is allowed for clarity.


    You judged this unfairly at me and not to his intrangences.

    this needs to be read and understood, all this data,









    other than that i have to say,

    there's nothing more going on here other than just plain ole' preaching.

  14. the brain has time keeper cells near the core regions of the brain. these time keeper cells create a time cycle that the brain uses this as the standard, by which it compares internal clocks and sensory time. since this arrangement formed naturally, this suggests that space-time is actually time-space, with time having first seat.


    when humans first started to develop science, they picked distance first, instead of time, because distance was much easier to conceptualize and agree upon as a standard, compared to time. distance is passive and therefore is was easy to measure with a stick or foot using matter. but time was dynamic and more ethereal and therefore not as easy to conceptualize or agree upon as to its nature.


    even today, time is still nebulous as this topic continues to show. this is why although the brain naturally uses time-space, humans prefer space-time.

  15. Is this the first time you have noticed a government being stupid?


    Also, most of the things you have cited there are nothing to do with ESP.

    Extrasensory perception


    Extrasensory perception (ESP) involves reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed with the mind. The term was adopted by Duke University psychologist J. B. Rhine to denote psychic abilities such as telepathy,




    te·lep·a·thy [tə léppəthee]
