  1. I see it as the indeterminate denominator as what causes the problem.

     

    0 / (X != 0) = 0

     

    I still managed to develop a system of math with it(black hole equations) but there were unresolvable issues past the very basics. Something to do if you're bored if nothing else.

  2. It would need proof of existence before we can talk about gaining access to it.

     

    Just to clarify this is normally talked about as a 5th dimension. The 3 space and 1 time dimensions, being the ones we are aware of at present.

     

    I do like Asimov but his science fiction was just that. No positronic brain Roombas running around.

  3. I had a dream where Morgan Freeman was the host on a bizarre mash-up of Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.

     

    While Freeman lauding the achievements of an umbrella and referring to his days fighting the Taliban, was entertaining; I can only hope my experience of heaven is in no way similar.

  4. I really don't appreciate being attacked while asking for more information...

     

    I(and others smarter than myself) have attempted to read your papers and gotten nowhere. I am asking for further explanation.

     

    If you can not or will not provide it, then what are we here to discuss?

  5. A number of members including at least one moderator, have mentioned an inability to understand what your posts reference.

     

    I am trying to see that corrected.

     

     

    Personally I find myself unable to form an opinion as to whether your argument is of a scientific nature. I cannot evaluate your argument based on what has been presented thus far, therefor I have not offered an opinion on the matter.

     

    I am asking that you use other sources besides yourself so that your argument can be properly evaluated.

     

     

    Self-citing is often frowned upon, being considered (and sometimes is) vanity, egotism or an attempt in self-advertising.

    If I claim that quibits are green and my evidence is myself stating that quibits are green; you would have reasonable cause to question the validity of my argument without ever seeing a quibit.

  6.  

    arXiv is an openly accessible, moderated repository for scholarly papers in specific scientific disciplines.

    http://arxiv.org/help/moderation

     

    Moderated yes, peer reviewed no.

     

     

    I want to see a discussion take place here. Present the basics in one short paragraph. Then present what evidence you have in the next.

     

    This thread has been going for over 5 years, time to either end it or move it forward.

     

     

  7. ArXiv(Archive) is supposed to be for drafts of scientific papers. Papers there are looked at by editors but not peer reviewed.

     

    I become concerned when I see papers from there that have not been published elsewhere.

     

     

     

    Can you explain your hypothesis in simple terms and give evidence(not another self citation) that supports it?

     

    Otherwise this thread is just going to continue as it has for literally years now.

     

     

     

  8. It is clear to me that some of you think "I am a science denialist" that is blatant nonsense! My prime interest is science in all its forms. All I suggest in this particular topic, is that no one really "knows for sure" how lifeless matter metamorphed into living organisms , especially as early as it did, only a few hundred million years after the earths formation, and the answer is not a simple as some suppose it is/or will be when finally revealed.

     

     

    Then stop with the straw men and start acknowledging that there are explanations to many if not all of the points you've brought up.

     

    That is the behavior that defines science denial.

  9. Most of what comes to mind are the more obvious uses. Detection of nuclear radiation, smoke alarms, signal recievers, etc.

     

     

    A bit out there but maybe a jeweled personal radiation detector, if it could be made simple enough, Glow red = danger.

     

    I could see a number of locations in the world where that might appeal at present.

  10. That's not saying much though, it's just saying that we don't perceive the universe as frozen, but we would if we were looking at things from outside. It doesn't explain how relative motion can arise from "frozen strings", because it shouldn't, without some additional mechanism to explain it.

     

     

     

    Two pieces of yarn. I lay one down and I lay the other so that they both intersect at one end. >

     

    From a 4 dimensional viewpoint, neither piece of yarn is moving.

     

    From a 3 dimensional viewpoint I see two dots moving closer together.

     

     

    Motion "real" in one dimension becomes unreal when considered from a higher dimension.

  11.  

    In February, the Soviets invaded Silesia and Pomerania, while Western Allies entered Western Germany and closed to the Rhine river. By March, the Western Allies crossed the Rhine north and south of the Ruhr, encircling the German Army Group B, while the Soviets advanced to Vienna. In early April, the Western Allies finally pushed forward in Italy and swept across Western Germany, while Soviet and Polish forces stormed Berlin in late April. The American and Soviet forces linked up on Elbe river on 25 April. On 30 April 1945, the Reichstag was captured, signalling the military defeat of the Third Reich.

    It is remarkably ignorant to claim that the victory was solely dependent upon any one country.

     

     

     

    If Jefferson didn't consider non-white males "men", then Jefferson's quotes are entirely self consistent. He did end up freeing slaves and allowing some to "escape" but he also kept a number. He may or may not have had offspring by one of his slaves. He was conflicted on the issue like many others in his day were.

     

     

    The country and world have changed since then. We still have a ways to go before we all live in liberty and treat the next man as our brother, but we are making progress.

     

    edit:

     

     

    The immediate problem was a recent tax break given to a large multinational corporation.

     

    Back then, when big corporations and wealthy people got tax breaks regular people did not get, the wrongness of the situation was recgonized - the rioters in Boston did not limit themselves to dumping some tea in the harbor: they burned the houses of certain of the rich, vandalilzed corporate and financial headquarters, assaulted wealthy people caught out on the street, and so forth.

     

    I was mainly thinking the Townshend taxes and the Stamp Act.

     

     

    The reasoning behind the taxes was justified. The lack of say in how much was taken or how the taxes were utilized was the issue.

     

     

     

  12. You ask if the country is evil while enjoying the freedom to read and post on a US based and American owned forum. Must not be all bad.

     

     

    WWII was a USSR victory.

    Operation D-Day was a failure, with the annihilation of allied troops on the Normandy beaches, several days of mass allied radio blackouts, weeks - months of the absence of chain of command etc.

     

    So, you don't think it may have had some impact on the Soviet's invasion?

     

     

    Meh, if you take a look most countries have some sort of sordid history and have utilized deception and propaganda.

     

    Soviet propaganda against the US being an obvious example.

  13. You are twisting facts and creating straw men.

     

    It was the lack of representation, not the tax itself. Generally speaking taxes increased post Revolution.

     

     

    I'm fairly sure I can speak for my fellow Americans on the fact that WW2 was a joint victory as far as the fall of Germany went.

     

    Needed Britain to have a safe harbor to offload troops and supplies. Needed the resistance groups to harass German forces and pass on intelligence. Needed Russia opening up a second front. I'm sure I missed groups and sacrifices with the vastness of the conflict, but suffice to say we don't think we were solely responsible.

     

     

    If you'll notice a good chunk of our foreign debt is to countries who might otherwise wish to attack us in some fashion. We've been using federal debt as ploy since the country was founded. We've only gotten better at it over the years. When you hold government debt, what you really hold is one end of a two-way leash.

  14. I didn't say it was against the rules I said you should refrain.

     

    You are constantly citing yourself and worse not adequately explaining how what you are citing relates to the topic at hand.

     

    Stick it in your signature if you want, but stop posting it all over the place.

     

     

    Meh, I'm done with this. You'll either change or you won't.
