  1. 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.

    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.

     

     

     

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. ph34r.png Their's no doubt their is a way to cleanse asbestos fibers from the inner human body-it just needs to be discovered!. Many scientific discovery's had their nay sayers!.

     

     

    That really doesn't follow.

     

    The discovery has to come first. Then you can say there is a method.

     

    Nobody is saying there isn't one. They are saying there are a number issues with finding one. Because of these issues there are better routes we can explore for treatment.

     

    The asbestos is fragmenting. The cells are being damaged. The few things that can impact asbestos also kill cells. Physically dragging the asbestos out would also leave a trail of damaged cells and more asbestos fragments.

     

     

    Most probable solution would be tissue replacement. Far simpler proposition.

     

    We about have the technology already. Organ printing just needs to develop further.

  7. How you write is as important as what you write.

     

    To put it another way even if you have the answer to life itself, you still need to be able to communicate it to others.

     

     

    You keep on and eventually you'll just get banned like many others before you. You are not the first to claim some secret knowledge and you most definitely won't be the last. You want to be a statistic then do so knowing that the world at large isn't going to care.

    @Endy

    I don't think we would. We are part of and observe a dynamical system; there is no need for a temporal dimension to observe events. Events occur, some preceding others, we have memory of "past" events and can imagine "future" events, which is what gives rise to our idea of time as a dimension. Just events occuring and the power of observation is necessary to observe events.

     

     

     

    That doesn't really explain how relative motion can arise from "frozen strings".

     

    Indeed, we don't and we can't (observe objects having a temporal distance).

     

     

     

     

    It is a case of perception vs reality.

     

    If we rendered instances of a "2D" flatland next to each other you could walk along and see past, present and future for the little world. Something existing within the world would observe relative motion. You outside of it observe frozen frames.

     

    Their time is your distance.

     

     

    if the universe had no spatial dimensions, then I would say that spatial dimensions do not exist.

     

     

     

    I was mainly getting at black holes. Spacial expansion is another one.

     

    The dimensions exist on their own terms, best not get too attached.

  9. I did state the frequency range, it begins in infrared at 140thz and ends at 980thz, green is 560thz and is its median. It scales up or down maintaining a 1 to 7 proportion, simple math. Like the relationship of shell number to principle quantum number, you failed to hear me. I have a thought experiment for all you naysayers which is firmly grounded in reality which will address Swansont's question. On a rainy day the clouds part and a ray of sunlight shines through the falling water. Lo, nature has dispersed its own light. I see the rim of the light cone, an arc. Hold your ruler to the sky, do you see the 7 colors? Are they not equally spaced? They are. Look closer, I see another rainbow behind it, the sun's light is periodic. Divide a pie into equal parts, turn it on its side. Do the slices now look unequally spaced? They do. So it is with the difference in vantage points of the straight line spectrum's interference pattern and illusion of distance to the reality of distance in the interference pattern of the arc of the rainbow. When viewed from above the arc looks like a straight line, move orthogonally to either side and lo, it is an arc. A prism changes the orientation of light therefore the vantage point of the observer, as if looking from above. A rainbow is a natural spectrum observed head on. The light cone is properly perceived by the eye because the retinal cones interpret the signal like the continual stacking of ice cream cones. Knowledge begins with the simple observation of natural phenomenon, clues, to the secrets of nature.

    Absolute nonsense? Think again. Closing this thread would be as foolish as burning the witch at the stake. Everytime I give a scientific answer it is disregarded and another attack is initiated because the terminology is not understood. The idea that this topic is not even worth speculation is an insult to the scientific community. Behold the conversations that have arisen already. We mock what we do not understand.

     

     

    Stop dramatizing. You are being asked to obey forum rules not on trial.

     

     

    You seem to have latched onto the number 7 and multiplied an arbitrary frequency by it.

     

    If you have something more than that, then present it. Otherwise there is really nothing to discuss and no reason this thread needs to stay open.

  10. Without a temporal dimension you'd lack the ability to observe events.

     

     


     

    Likening the universe to a frozen tangle of threads is essentially the block universe concept, but it requires the assumptions that both past and future are real, as well as the assumption that time is real/physical and can be measured. Part of the latter assumption requires the assumption that clocks measure this property called "time", even though this cannot be demonstrated.

     

    Further, in a universe where the worldlines of objects are like frozen threads i.e. static and unmoving, there would be no relative motion, without some other mechanism to explain it, which in itself would require a further assumption.

     

    We can drop all of those assumptions, however, and investigate the concept of time and the idea that clocks measure this property called "time" and realise that nowhere in the process of a clock is something called "time" ever actually measured. In an atomic clock, for example, what is actually measured is the microwave emissions from the electrons of a caseium-133 atom, say; these emissions are measured and counted and this count is used as a standardised unit of comparison. Nowhere is a secondary, physical property, or dimension, measured.

     

     

    It would only appear frozen from a 5th dimensional view.

     

    Difficult to explain properly but you can't observe an object having a temporal distance of 5 seconds, because you yourself are using time to observe.

     

    In theory you could pull it off, but only via sacrificing one of your spacial dimensions or somehow gaining an extra dimension. In either case you still have one dimension you can't traverse freely.

  11. We only ever observe objects in the present moment (not to be confused with "the present moment in time"), in what we term as "now". The trajectory of an object represents past states, or locations, which no longer exist, as well as possibly representing future states of the object. When an observation is made, it can only made in the present moment - we can't observe "the past" we can only observe the present.

     

    That's not to say that "past" observations were never real, they were, but they have ceased to be real. So the trajectory of an object, moving with respect to the observer, represents configurations of the object which are no longer real ("past" configurations) and configurations which are not yet real ("future" configurations).

     

    The object is not extended in time, as it is extended in space, it exists only in the now, the present moment.Objects, therefore, do not have a temporal dimension, it is our memory of "past" states and imaginings of "future" states, which lead us to believe that they do. But those memories and imaginings are not physically real, they are mental constructs.

     

     

    You are assuming that we are incapable of observing the past due to its non-existance.

     

    We could just be incapable of observing the past instead.

     

     

    Universe can be likened to a frozen tangle of threads. We only see our particular slice. What we term the present is the unreal construct.

  12. Leedskalnin built Coral Castle.

     

    It is a cool site, but I think Leedskalnin was just using the quasi-mystical construction angle to promote his attraction.

     

    He had a fair number of neighbors, I find it difficult to believe nobody witnessed construction/reconstruction. Only thing really inexplicable is the perfectly balanced stone gate.
