  1. 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?

     


  2.  

    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.


  4. Quote

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

    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.

     


  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    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.

    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.


  10. 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.


  11. 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?

    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?

    Since we can make up advanced technology, let's say there is AI and robots to do most of those jobs.

    Problem solved.

    It depends how many people is needed to support a self system with out trade.

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

    The US doing the 50's and 60's was the only other country at that time that came close to making every thing it its own country with almost no trade. Not sure what the population was.

    Most other countries need trade to survive because of lack of people.

    Using  these population numbers to see what mars may need.

     

     


  17. Why do schools not test for high emotional IQ.

    A high emotional IQ is bad.

    A high emotional IQ can lead to crime and killing becuase the person is too emotional and fines he or she cannot control his or her emotional outpust. Say your girlfread left you or you lost your job some one may feel sad or angry where people that score high on emotional IQ have a outpust and cannot control them self thus can lead to crime, killing or assault.

    Can lead to unpretective sex thus could get HIV, sleeping around with 10 people a day, and robbery, assault and break ins so on.

     People with high emotional IQ have harder time in school and drop out of school more and get stress out easy becuase they have very hard time with their emotions.

    They get stress out easy and do not do well with lot of work. They are too emotional.

     

     


  18. That say for example we had the technology to get to mars in hour and the cost of plane ticket!!  A mars colony of 500,000 people or million people may not be enough to support it self on mars!! Why? You need.

  19. To join the military or be a doctor how high of IQ do you need?

    To go to medical school and do well in medical school how high of an IQ do you need? An IQ of at least 90? Any IQ lower than 90 and you will do really bad in school and have a really hard time in medical school at learning .

    In the military if you IQ is too low you may cause problems than be a help.

    As the case in the Low-IQ Troops in the Vietnam War.

    (International Business Times) Chocolate could reportedly vanish as early as 2050. This revelation has led scientists from the University of California at Berkeley to work with Virginia-based manufacturer Mars, Incorporated to save the cacao plant from disappearing. 

     

    Warmer temperatures and drier weather conditions are expected to be the root of the cacao plants' potential disappearance, according to Business Insider. New technology, known as CRISPR, is being used by UC Berkeley scientists to modify the DNA of the plants. The crop's tiny seedlings would be able to survive in different climates if the experiment is proven successful.

     

    Cacao plants originated millions of years ago in South America. The crop is only capable of growing in the lower story of the evergreen rainforest, where warm temperatures and rainfall are plentiful. It's also frequently victim to fungal disease and climate change. More than half of the world's chocolate now comes from two countries in West Africa, being Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana.

     

    However, these regions will soon become an unsuitable host environment for the cacao plant. 

     

    Joseph Boahen Aidoo, chief executive of Ghana's cocoa board COCOBOD, specifically addressed the Cocoa Swollen Shoot Virus (CSSVD) infesting farms throughout the country in addition to ongoing pest problems wreaking havoc on the cocoa farms. Speaking with GhanaWeb Saturday, Aidoo detailed his recent tours of the country's Western South and North cocoa growing fields. Aidoo called upon Ghana health officials and accompanying government economic directors to collect samples of the current diseased pods for study on how to rehabilitate the country's infestation issues.

    New Study: Eat Your Strawberries Before Climate Change Wipes Them Out

    (Mother Jones) With its year-round sunshine and vast tracts of fertile land, California is one of the jewels of US food production, providing a third of the nation’s vegetables and two-thirds of our fruits and nuts. As the climate warms, can we continue to take this $50.5 billion bounty for granted? 

     

    That’s the question posed by a team of University of California researchers in an eye-opening new paper published in the journal Agronomy, in which they digest recent research to “document the most current understanding on California’s climate change trends in terms of temperature, precipitation, snowpack, and extreme events such as heat waves, drought, and flooding, and their relative impacts” on the state’s agriculture.

    They address these topics one by one, and the results are hardly comforting to US eaters

     For one thing, the scientists found, a temperature change of just a few degrees is “closely related to yield reductions” in some of the most cherished California crops: almonds, wine grapes, strawberries, walnuts, freestone peaches, and cherries. Avocado production could plummet by the middle of the century. Because of fewer winter chill hours, by the end of the century, the paper suggests, only 10 percent of the Central Valley will remain viable to grow fruits like apricots, kiwis, peaches, and nectarines

    Actually we already know how how electricity work, it is simply  a flow of charge, and quantum mechanics is what explains electricity at the most fundamental level, if you want to understand it at a fundamental level. Electricity is more or less classical mechanics so we known about how it works for hundreds of years.

    This is what a hydrogen atom looks like with a quantum microscope:

    18ontxblfw77lpng.png

    And if you want start knowing more about electricity simply use wikipedia.Wikipedia - Electricity

    My understanding is a microscope uses light to see really small things and a photon is bigger than an atom so a photon would just move the atom around not allowing you to see it.



  22. What is best book or web site that may explain the best theories how electricity may work.


     
    What I got so far.


    While the exact nature of electricity is not fully known, theories have been developed that enable us to understand its characteristics and thus developed means to make it do useful work.

    studying electron theory is the major key.

    The atom is a minute particle and cannot be seen even by a powerful microscope.

    However, the presence of atoms may be detected by sensitive electrical instruments.

     

    :oSeems to be off topic talking about Matter, Molecule and Atoms.:o

    I'm looking for how electricity may work not theories or quantum mechanics talk.
