    People in general are very confused as to most subjects. I remember being a kid at least breathing, eating and procreation were subjects free of confusion but that too is no longer the case.

    I think we need be clear about looks than DNA test.

    That if billion people where in a room from different countries and you had no idea from what country they came from and you cannot run DNA test that could you group the people base on looks. And how many groups.

    Now culture is other thing and culture changes over time.

    There is a lot of variety in Siberia and China. So I don't think you can really say there is a single "look". People also got to the Americas from other places at different times, so the native population would have had a bit of a mixed background.

    One common trait that is common in Asia is the epicanthic fold (which gives eyes their distinctive appearance) this is also common among native Americans. 

    Really, "it doesn't look like it to me" is about the lowest possible standard to judge something. Using objective evidence is better.

    Yea I think that is what he was saying here that some may come from Philippines and from Mongolia.

    It makes sense lot of Mongolia people look similar to the natives.

    But I'm not sure if 90% main stream media and schools support that theory?


  3. I saw this documentary on native Indians in America’s and it goes on to say they came about 10,000 to 14,000 years ago and most them are Siberian and Chinese .

    I find this a bit questionable that they think they came from Russia and China and are people from there.  People from China or Siberian do not look like natives. So why does the documentary say that?

     


  4. Why do people confuse Race vs. Ethnicity when they talk or post on the internet?

    Where the dictionary is really clear that ethnicity is shared cultural characteristics, like language, religion, fashion, way you dress, music, custom, food so on.

    Where race referring to physical characteristics on what the person looks like .

    where base on this article there is 30 human races in the world.

    https://blog.world-mysteries.com/science/how-many-major-races-are-there-in-the-world/
     

    But way more ethnicity in the world.

     


  5. What does it mean when it is saying representing the actual state of the particle by adding up a bunch of functions? This is in reference to eigenstates.

    That particle has allowed states called eigenstates. Well it is not that particle is in any one of those states, but you can represent its actual state by combining all of them together. That the part of eigenstates I do not understand.

    Where a general state of a particle is a mixture of these eigenstates. This is the part I do not understand.

     


  6.  Are there going to be better equipment where we can know these things like string theory , extra dimensions and uncertainty principle you never know the particle the speed and position at the same time. You can know the speed but not the position or you know the position but not the speed.  

    If we know a particle's speed EXACTLY, then we can't know exactly where it is.  Likewise, if we know exactly where it is, we can't know it's speed.

     Are there going to be better equipment for this?

    I have studied string and M theory and I do not recall any DE or DM explanation specific to the two theories. Though I would not doubt one can find papers that attempt to do so in those theories. 

     As above a dimension is an independent mathematical object such as a variable/group/tensor etc. DM and DE do not require extra dimensions to model them.


    Some people make reference to things being in other dimension that humans cannot see and there may or may not be tools to see the dimension. And think much of the dark energy or dark matter may be in there.

    The reasons are of a mathematical nature. When you formulate the theory, there are two basic requirements that need to be fulfilled - it needs to be internally consistent, and it needs to describe the correct particles (with correct properties etc) which we empirically find the in the real world. It turns out that these requirements are fulfilled only if there are more than 4 spacetime dimensions, otherwise the model doesn’t work.

     

    Why does string theory / M theory require dark matter and dark energy?

    I thought this other gravity they cannot see or detect like dark matter and dark energy where in other dimension or dimensions?

    So why does it require dark matter and dark energy?  If it is in other dimension or dimensions and that is why they cannot see or detect it than there is no such thing as dark matter and dark energy? If that is the case than why does it require dark matter and dark energy?

     


  8. Really shocking base on this video I found. There could be more dimensions of space.  Could this explain the problems they are having with gravity today? And also the Schrödinger's cat, uncertainty principle and double slit experiment?

    The short video below.

    Why does string theory require extra dimensions of space?

    That not really the big problem because if you look at this that is lot of money

    How much money is spent on cancer research per year?

    https://www.quora.com/How-much-money-is-spent-on-cancer-research-per-year?share=1

    That is 2012 stats that still lot of money.

    Yet people are still dying today so how much progress really have been made in the past 5 to 10 years.

    Looking at 2010 to 2020 really how much progress really been made.

    The first step to understand is that in physics models including string theory is that a dimension is any independent variable or quantity/function that can change in value without changing any other. ( This includes string theory) the extra dimensions correspond to particle degrees of freedom that correspond to their interactions.

     It does not refer to dimension as per another universe etc.

     String theory applies waveform descriptives to the properties we describe as a particle. In this sense it isn't different from QFT. A string is a waveform descriptive.

    It follows GR but more so in the SR regime as gravity is so weakly in the quantum regime.

    I don't like the idea of the parallel universe to explain the Schrödinger's cat, uncertainty principle and double slit experiment.

    So if string theory / M theory or extra dimension or many dimensions hold up better we do not need parallel universe  to explain Schrödinger's cat, uncertainty principle and double slit experiment.


  11. Quote

    Research suggests a belief in oneness has broad implications for psychological functioning and compassion for those outside of our immediate circle.

    https://getpocket.com/explore/item/what-would-happen-if-everyone-truly-believed-everything-is-one?utm_source=pocket-newtab

    So in reality there is no such thing as people? Yes everyone is all one person base on what those researchers are saying? So everyone on earth and the way people behave are just the thought of the maker?

    And what the researcher are saying we are all one. And we are nothing more but parts of the maker?

    So far to date, string theory etc. has no experimental basis.  The basic problem is reconciling quantum theory and general relativity when both are needed (black holes).

    From what I understand string theory / M theory does not replace general relativity. It still needs dark matter and dark energy.

    Unless you think gravity is seeking in from other universe counting for the mass.

    The string theory / M theory never gone that far to claim gravity is seeking in from other universe counting for the mass.

     I know many people would like support other universe theory to explain what caused the big bang.

     


  13. This kinda of explains it.

    The “repo” move, comes a day after market turmoil in which rates spiked at record levels and worries grew that the Fed was losing control of its benchmark rate. The repo markets serve as short-term plumbing that runs the financial market’s operating systems. In extreme cases, breakdowns can lead to financial crises such as the one that engulfed Wall Street in 2008 when overnight lending dried up between big Wall Street institutions.

  14. What is your view on string theory / M theory or extra dimension or many dimensions? From what I read the people that came up with this theory are trying to understand and deal with problems with gravity and quantum mechanics phenomenon. That if there was no quantum mechanics phenomenon or problem with gravity there would be no need for this theory.

    The quantum mechanics phenomenon are mostly dealing with the phenomenon of double slit experiment, the Schrödinger's cat and quantum tunneling.

    They are talking about this:

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repurchase_agreement

     

    This article talks about current events:

    https://www.bankrate.com/banking/federal-reserve/why-the-fed-pumps-billions-into-repo-market/

    Its hard to follow honestly but basically things are fine.

    You’ve probably heard some talk about an obscure, technical glitch that’s left Wall Street banks, investors and the Fed itself on edge since Sept. 16. Perhaps you’ve also seen some of the blaring headlines about the Fed intervening and injecting hundreds of billions of dollars into the financial system, a first since the financial crisis.
     

    well it does not say why they are on edge the banks, investors and financial system other than they need money from the feds.

    some one was telling me about the high corporate debt not sure if that the reason or not.

    Worse case the dollar is replaced and we declare the debt null and void.

    Little is all that worrying in the grand scheme of things.

     

    And move where? To the pound? Mexican peso? The Euro?

    You’re gonna need to share a link, or at least convey your thoughts more precisely.

    Do you mean quantitative easing from the past administration? 

    Do you mean bailouts to US farmers to cushion them from tariffs and trade war?

    Do you mean election spending?

    Which market are you referencing?

    What are you talking about?

    The feds injecting billions into the market or banks and have been doing this the the past two to three months.

    That all the news outlet was saying and also used the word repo.

    So I don’t know where the money is going and who is getting rich of this thing.

    I did not know the stock market or banks are not doing well and could crash with out this money coming from the feds.

    well I did not know the problem was that bad.


  17. What is this the news I hear they are saying repo or injecting billion dollars into the market?

    Is the stock market not doing well and the government is injecting billions into the market every day to keep the stock market up.

    Where is this money going and is profiting from it.

    Is is stock market not doing well now and could crash and that why feds are popping money into every day.


  18. New quantum study in an double-slit experiment..

    https://futurism.com/the-geometric-structure-that-is-changing-notions-of-reality

    The quantum study is saying how strange quantum world is it like.

    example you have coin in a box it can be heads or tails. The double slit experiment saying for the person out side the box it can be both heads and tails but in the box it is heads or tails not both!! The best theory with out getting into many world theory is the wave theory that by measuring it or looking at it does some to the wave .

    The wave is in all position points but by looking at it or measuring it the wave breaks down to point.

    It says that people with high EQ can recognise emotions. It says nothing about controlling them. That appears to be your invention. 

    People who are very emotional and have hard time controlling emotions, impulse and desires so on. Example some one who got fired from work and got so mad he or she  assaulted the boss. Some one who has gone shopping and have no money and cannot control the urge to steal. Some one cannot control impulse and desires and sleep with 10 people a day and increase risk of HIV and some one who cannot control emotions and yell and scream.

    Some people are better at controlling emotions, impulse and desires than other people. Why is that?

    If people who score really really low on emotional IQ and this has nothing to do with controlling emotions, impulse and desires than what is it?

    Why do some people like to link IQ  with crime and impulse and desires control problem? Unless this is some other IQ thing that has nothing to do with low emotional IQ?

    Globalization vs Protectionism?

    Germany and China in the past practice protectionism with grate wall of China and did not pan out that well for them!! They where less industrialized and more primitive.

    US of 330 million people cannot support it self with a population of 330 million people and thus need trade to support it self today.

    We trade with other countries because of a shortage of goods and people and are not self-sufficient. I know of no country on earth that is self-sufficient or come close to being self-sufficient today.

    When countries practice protectionism and anti-trade they normally have a economy of third world country and are dirt poor and massive shortage of goods and supplies. And these are countries with way more people than 500,000 people or million people you want to send to mars.

    So if you cannot do it on earth how are you going to do it on mars?

    Germany was the only country on earth that did not trade and made every thing in the country. But not sure what the population was at that time.

    No. What I am saying is that you can plan a colony on Mars without taking International Trade into consideration.

    What I'm trying to say is if we cannot make self-sufficient city or country on earth with protectionism no trade than how are we going to make a self-sufficient mars colony.

    I'm surprised NASA has not ran any numbers on how big the colony would have to be to support it self with out trade?

    We only trade between countries because we have countries. If we had one world government we would not need trade between countries. Don't confuse politics with economics.

    I cannot see how any of the above statements logically follow from the definition of Emotional Intelligence.  Maybe I have the wrong definition??

    According to Wikipedia:  Emotional intelligence (EI), emotional leadership (EL), emotional quotient (EQ) and emotional intelligence quotient (EIQ), is the capability of individuals to recognize their own emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking ...

    Emotional intelligence - Wikipedia

     

    It seems to me that a high capability to recognize ones own emotions and discern the emotions of others would be very beneficial to relationships.

    I'm not sure what you mean? Are you saying people that score low on emotional IQ have hard time controlling his or her own emotions where by people that score high on emotional IQ can control his or own emotions better?

    People are more emotional when they score low on emotional IQ and less emotional and when they score high on emotional IQ?
