  1. I think they suggest meditation because it provides similar mental energies to those involved in prayer but without the religious association.

     

    Mental Illness is subjective, but generally the belief is that it is better for society if everyone is as close to "normal" as possible.

  2. If you had something like a micro-black hole kept contained via charges you could "feed" it matter.

     

    You could picture it sitting behind a turbine generator, creating a perpetual vacuum.

     

    It'll give you all the energy you want until you run out of stuff to feed it.

     

     

    Same situation no matter what you decide to use.

  3. Need to consider that not everyone views the Vedas the same way.

     

    The Bible says one thing, the Qur'an another and Torah something else.

     

     

    Going back to the science, you need to show that time dilation would cause the effects stated using outside sources.

     

    Speeding up there shouldn't be any. The lifespan would be the same. Could observe more of a slower moving frame of reference. Watch the world unfold beneath you, which would be something, but it would not help your own lifespan out any.

     

    I'm not even sure what it would mean to do the opposite and try to come to a relative Stop. We would see such a vessel speeding away, while relative to a hypothetical center it maintains position.

    Cleverbot: Are you a human?

    User: You are stumped.

     

    Cleverbot: Thats very deep.

     

    User: What is very deep?

     

    Cleverbot: That you're a more advanced program than what a real person is.

     

    User: What are you?

     

    Cleverbot: Female.

     

    User: You are stumped.

     

    Cleverbot: Lets pretend. No more girly talk please.

    Cleverbot: I am very sure.

     

    User: Are you stumped?

     

    Cleverbot: I am fairly certain.

    User: Are you stumped, yes or no?

     

    Cleverbot: Yes.

     

    Victory!

  5. I think LET is dead in the water without an Aether that differs from the background.

     

    It might be there, but how and in what ways does it impact the math?

     

     

    I really don't like discussing articles of faith, anyone else have some debate points?

  6. For one thing synthetic genomics is not the same as genetic engineering.

     

    That's just a scare tactic.

     

     

    The title of the actual scientific report cited by this article's source:

     

    Deep-Sea Oil Plume Enriches Indigenous Oil-Degrading Bacteria

     

    Somehow a local beneficial bacterium has become an evil GM Bacterium...

  7. Optical Clocks and Relativity

     

     

    Observers in relative motion or at different gravitational potentials measure disparate clock rates. These predictions of relativity have previously been observed with atomic clocks at high velocities and with large changes in elevation. We observed time dilation from relative speeds of less than 10 meters per second by comparing two optical atomic clocks connected by a 75-meter length of optical fiber. We can now also detect time dilation due to a change in height near Earth’s surface of less than 1 meter. This technique may be extended to the field of geodesy, with applications in geophysics and hydrology as well as in space-based tests of fundamental physics.

  8. The speed really wouldn't enable your natural lifespan to be any longer.

     

    More to the point a journey into a black hole is an end to you, if not the matter you are composed of. It also probably doesn't leave the Universe so much as reappear at a much later point. Not sure the effective difference is meaningful but it is there.

     

     

    I almost read the Yuga cycle as a breakdown of advanced medical technology.

     

    Need an expert on the subject, but the parallel could be made. Each successive loss resulting in an ever shorter lifespan. Several of the losses resulting in "diseases" that would even make further losses look preferable(cancer and telomere repair).

     

    I really don't like mixing science and religion too much though. Almost see it as them corrupting each other in the process.

     

    You can't have scientific certainty if you are relying on faith in a proof, neither can you have faith if you have certain knowledge.

  9. Muons forming in the upper atmosphere are the best example.

     

    From our perspective they shouldn't have enough time to reach the surface before most of them decay.

     

    From their perspective they have plenty of time.

    Helps to think of time as a mountain.

     

    Two people going down it at different rates. They each see themselves as going at their "normal" rate, but they see the other person as going at a different rate.

     

    No paradox, their experience is simply relative to their own frame of reference.

  10. Devoidwind, if you honestly feel strongly about it then just buy the thing, try it out and tell us your findings.

     

    For a number of reasons it simply isn't logical. Infinite lifeforms populating the Universe, black-holes everywhere, etc.

     

    There might be a hundred snake oil salesmen but that doesn't mean they are selling something you should buy.

     

     

    More practical than a free energy device, would be to find a novel way to tap into a large existing source.

     

    Assorted planetary magnetic fields and geothermal sources would be our best bet. Plenty of more hypothetical sources out there though.

     

    Wouldn't be truly free, certainly not free of consequences, but long lasting on a human scale.

  11. There's programming, which I think most would agree, is reasonably identical to a determined drive.

     

    Where Robots lack is in their ability to try new things and learn from them.

     

    Possibly if you hooked a physical robot body up to a good AI with a simulator built in, it would be more capable.

     

    Real world processing power limitations and lack of safeguards(injury/damage) are the main issues involved.
