Would I be able to go into research with a bachelor's in engineering? If I changed my mind once I'm done

And if so, for which engineering degrees does this apply to?

Is engineering a good route to research? If I obtained a non engineering masters? And if so, what kind of masters complements a bachelors of engineering well?

I'm insulted, frankly.

Is coffee a method of societal control? How can it be so universally praised by the media when it affects sleep?

What is your opinion on the health effects?
>>
No, its currently a cheap and relatively healthy caffeine vehicle with lots of historical acclaim.

Hell, when Coffee and Tobacco came to Europe, Europe soon after began the enlightenment and the industrial revolution.

Coffee is great and probably caused the enlightenment. Your sleep patterns are meaningless.

Do you mean "deriving the algorithms" on the fly or implementing the algorithms on the fly? Because on is possible but not the other. One is also dependent on the other. One takes hours, perhaps hundreds of hours for a noob while the other would take minutes, perhaps even seconds but most likely minutes.

So, I just sat on my balcony for a while and watched the nightsky because it's so really clear right now.

I noticed some groups of stars shaking really fast. It didn't seem completely chaotic but I guess I can't really talk of a pattern. It seemed like some even 'rotated'.

I can't imagine the earth spinning so uneven that I notice it by looking at the sky.

What phenomenon could this be? I think it's something from the Earth because the group of stars was pretty far away, judging by their light intensity. The thing that...

>>
>>7770659
$\int\limits_\mathbb{R} {{e^{ - {x^2}}}dx}$

>>7770664
Note that this (and many other integrals) can be determined using dimensional analysis. I recommend the book "Street Fighting Mathematics" (its free google it) for that and many more useful techniques.
>>
>>7770659
$\int{ \frac {(1+x^2)dx} { (1-x^2) \sqrt {1+x^4 }}}$

Not an easy integral.

I don't fully understand imaginary time, what does he mean by this and why are there no singularities in imaginary time?

When we do a wick rotation, i.e. using an imaginary time coordinate ${t_E} = it$, the path integral we use to describe a theory will become a euclidean path integral. $\int {\mathcal{D}\varphi {e^{iS\left[ \varphi \right]}}} \to \int {\mathcal{D}\varphi } {e^{ - {S_E}\left[ \varphi \right]}}$

This allows to equate a QFT with a quantum statistical mechanics theory as the path integral takes the form of a partition function. The euclidean path integrals tend to me easier to evaluate and diverge less.

Well, consider how we view the universe.

We see a three-dimensional world with one dimension of time, seeming to move unilaterally from start to finish.

In order for Hawking to be able to imply that the universe had no beginning or end, he simply suggested that maybe TIME has an additional dimension orthogonal to the time we perceive.

If time is shaped how we think it is, then imaginary time, according to Hawking, would be spherically-shaped. This implies that the universe has neither beginning, nor end.
