I really don't like how the multiverse theory has just become a meme for fedora tipping plebs
What are some good arguments that dismiss the muliverse? It's almost like becoming the next flat earth/hollow earth expansion pack for next wave of bandwagoning trolls
>"Hurr durr theres a universe in where i exist in???"
Scientists are now fedora tipping plebs. Thanks /sci/
If you believe in Schrödinger's Cat, then there's multiple universes existing simultaneously for all quantum events. You can say that when we observe anything, the other universes don't exist, or maybe they do.
Or you can say that there were other big bangs in higher dimensions. The big bang was possibly just a quantum fluctuation.
What are some good introductory and intermediate texts on non-standard analysis?
What drugs should I take if I want to be completely emotionless and apathetic?
why would you want to be apathetic? you lose motivation to do anything or to interact with anyone
your best chocie for that is anti-psychotics like seroquel. they're well known for zombifying people as a side effect
Can somebody explain the difference between the 3 Ways of measuring Temperature? Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin.
Oh, and do explain thoroughly
Celsius and Kelvin are the same scale, Celsius is just more appropriate to humans.
Fahrenheit is american and I'm not quite sure the significance, plus that picture is fucking retarded and doesn't make any sense
I'm really curious about nuclear fusion. If by tomorrow, the US decided to dump 100 billion into fusion research, could we expect significant progress within the next 10 years? Or how about 200 billion? With all these promises you read about in the media about fusion, shouldn't there be a huge global movement to make fusion a thing? I mean, shouldn't it be the #1 priority above ALL else?
>If by tomorrow, the US decided to dump 100 billion into fusion research, could we expect significant progress within the next 10 years? Or how about 200 billion?
Unlike in video games, generally you can't solve scientific problems just by throwing money at them. You have to come up with an experiment first, and then that costs whatever it costs, and it may or may or may not work. You could allot $100 billion for fusion research, but we would have nothing to spend it on because...

>Achieving any kind of progress
>When we do not even know if there are infinitely many twin primes
Yeah, good luck with that. Before we ever even dream of progress, we must fund analytical number theorists.
Any recommendation for a begginer in this markdown language? Thank you.
Today I just realised something. For a dimension to truly be a dimension it needs to be perpendicular to all other dimensions. E.g. In 2 dimensions the x coordinate system is perpendicular to the y dimension. In 3 dimensions the z axis is perpendicular to both the x and y axis. Therefore it's not possible to have a system with dimensions greater than 3 because if you add another there's no way for it to be perpendicular to all three other axises. Now where is my Nobel award?
It can be perpendicular with a dimension greater than 3 based on the scalar product you defined.
If P and Q are vectors of a n-dimensional space :
P _|_ Q \equiv <P,Q> = 0 \equiv (P,Q) = Arcos<P,Q>/(Norm(Q)*Norm(P)) = Pi/2
How long until we see these sorts of hoverboards
with 10 minute flight times? I believe that once that mark is passed they will become commercially viable (extreme sports,emergency response in areas with shit roads etc.)
>emergency response in areas with shit roads
not this bullshit again
the quickest emergency response (one that can actually carry stuff) into an area with shit roads is a paramedic helicopter
now quit talking out of your ass you goddamn quadcopter-meme faggot
fuck yea bitches, we 2nd to the ruskies.
ruskie 'neers eat boris cak.
>liberal arts journalists literally think engineering is manufacturing/construction
How do we know what's in the middle of the earth? No one's been down there, right? Realistically, it could be hollow and have a bunch of dinosaurs living down there.
>inb4 someone posts scribbly seismic lines
those prove nothing
What do you think of this /sci/? Is there a point getting a STEM degree when SJW and Feminist are essentially corrupting corporate America?
How close are we to understanding how the brain creates consciousness?
Where does used energy go? If it doesn't go anywhere, and still exists after being used, shouldn't infinite energy exist?
well you see, Billy, the there is a very important distinction between usable work and heat. The laws of thermodynamics dictate that the latter will comprise more and more of the energy in the universe until no usable energy is left, and no work can ever be done. This is called the heat death of the universe.
All the joking aside, what IS causing the rise in autism spectrum disorders? It's like 1 in 45 now.
Can anyone recommend textbooks/offer advice on higher dimensional integrals? ( d>3)
I've no luck googling/skimming through other books.
Anon I would give up your search.
Only a few of the most brilliant professionals in the world have ever been able to evaluate a triple integral.
No one has ever solved a quadruple integral. In higher dimensions we can't even begin to formulate how one might approach a beginning of a solution.
Engineer here with a question (inb4elitistmathfags), what's the difference between the triple integrals that I've evaluated (for classes like vector calculus and electromagnetic theory) and the triple integrals you're talking about?
How else do you find the volume of an irregular three-dimensional shape?
