  1. Yeah, would basically be a race against time. Either the black hole evaporates or you run out of enough external pressure to keep going. I'll probably try and work through the math in a separate thread. Considering the energies involved more likely something for our descendents work out.
  2. Giant Glowing Beetles in the sky! It is only a matter of time that some mutant GM bacteria causes them to hybridize with the Bombardier Beetle. The attack on humanity will soon commence!
  3. That is the right attitude to take. I think it is safe to tell you now, that you were denying your emotions earlier. I do apologize for the blunt questions, I just don't know any better way to break people out of that stasis. You are going to be more emotional for awhile, you are past the main roadblock though. Congrats on selling the house, just try and connect with people wherever you end up going.
  4. If the Pastafarian religion considers bathing to be a religious experience, does that mean you are going to stop bathing? No, because it'd be silly. Bathing gives you some benefit. It doesn't matter if someone else thinks it is religious or not. Exact same scenario for meditation. http://www.uchospitals.edu/news/2007/20070903-psychiatrists.html They likely know of the significance of meditation to a number of religions(not all Eastern). That doesn't mean they personally believe in it.
  5. Good job on opening up. It is perfectly natural to feel angry and not want to talk about the situation. This says it pretty well. Besides needing to grieve the other issue is you have lost your primary social group. Your subconscious mind has been trying to tell you this. With acknowledgement, you can apply your rational mind to finding a solution. As long as your subconscious knows you are working on the problem it'll start letting you rest easier and you'll stop feeling as depressed. Work can serve temporarily. Long term you need something outside of that. Just
  6. Could that be the issue? You need to let what you are feeling show and find someone to talk with. Just to give you a sense of your writing; we have no idea if you are male, female, a divorcee or a widower. I don't like giving out personal details online either, but you can still share while maintaining relative anonymity.
  7. Kind of... Turbine in standard Earth Atmosphere. Black hole enclosed on every other side behind it. The majority of the energy generated would come from Atmospheric Pressure. I'll have to look up the numbers for Hawking radiation. Makes sense there would be a cost involved though. ...and yes, this would be crazy dangerous.
  8. It would be the Singularity itself we'd be making use of as a semi-permanent low pressure region. Transmit the effect of the singularity on the inside to the outside. Might be easier to view it as a chain being pulled. How I originally envisioned it. Would hopefully only be used as a secondary source used to improve efficiency. Would work well alongside of the more efficient Hawking radiation. Kind of makes me wonder what the real world numbers would look like.
  9. That doesn't necessarily follow. A number of religious groups practice meditation, but meditation is not limited to religious groups. Similar case with Yoga. You can view it as communion with the divine or you can view it as a healthy form of exercise. They suggest it because they think it will help. You don't have to follow the belief system to get the benefit. It is Eurocentric not to consider it a religious behavior, but that is exactly the same opinion that gets the masses to accept it when they would reject prayer or confession. General treatments are about what the
  10. Seems like Gravity is frequently misunderstood. Two masses generate some force as they come together. Once they are together you can only generate more force by separating them again. Separating them takes more energy than you initially received.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Same amount of work being accomplished, it is just being accomplished in a smaller area minus whatever losses heating the lens causes.
  14. Could you tell us more about what brought on the end of your marriage? If you reread what you wrote; you described it in less than a sentence, while describing everything else in detail. This may be of some help: 5 Stages of Loss and Grief I've always found it puts things into perspective.
  15. 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.
  16. We are a primarily diurnal species. Crepuscular or nocturnal intelligent life would likely have a different view.
  17. 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?
  18. I just chose to turn on a light, thus I refute thee.
  19. 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...
  20. Optical Clocks and Relativity
  21. 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
  22. Maybe Gravitational Waves, not sure what moving relative to them would entail and what would be transferred though. They are still theoretical and would be/are weak relative to EM waves.
  23. 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. http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/relativ/muon.html 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.
  24. 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 t
