Please tell me there's some scientific theory that says our thoughts are somehow still in motion after our brains stop functioning, almost like a dream simulator (which would explain why so many people "see heaven"). I need there to be some basis for my belief that anime women will be waiting for me on the other side.
>>8342087 Your brain releases a bunch of chemicals before you die, if I recall correctly DMT is one of those. It's like being forced on a drug trip with all kinds of trippy side effects. If your love of anime is strong enough you'll probably hallucinate about that. It's nothing you can't achieve through a properly made drug cocktail though.

There isn't. Have you ever been under anesthesia, op? Death is like that except without the part where you wake up. Which is to say death isn't like anything at all since anesthesia just seems like instant time travel between the point when you're put under the point when you're woken up.
For as long as I can remember, I've heard a rather significant buzzing or static noise around appliances and other electronic equipment in general, it's not all the time but it's often enough for it to have weirded me out for quite a while now, most of the time I barely notice it, however there's times where the noise is so loud that it downright overwhelms me, not only because of the sound itself but because I literally feel a vibration inside my head when it happens, and these only go away if I distance myself from the object originating the noise, when...

>>8341960 Somebody finally went and made a long-fabled automatic theorem prover that actually works. Now we can use supercomputers to automatically discover new mathematical concepts at a far faster rate than before. There will be all sorts of crazy new discoveries that will end up revolutionizing the applied sciences.
I apologize profusely that the following post will be /x/ as fuck but I'm not trying to prove ghosts or anything, I need advice from fellow scientists as to what to do when you don't believe in ghosts at all (obviously) yet have an experience that you just cannot explain. I'm sure someone else here must know this feel. it's very conflicting.

You got too specific too fast, if the noise woke them up likely nobody would have known what the fuck the noise was from. They especially would not be aware of which direction the door was traveling when it made the noise. You live in an apartment, there was likely someone next door or above/below you that slammed their door and you heard it. The mark in the wall is probably from someone in your apartment...

As first family to come down after the loud noise arrived they came to and were equally surprised at what they saw, and possibly heard, as the arriving family member.

assume that you are gambling/investing whatever you want to call it
everytime you do it, you have a 51% or higher chance of succeeding. does this mean you will inevitably (>99%) make a net profit over a sufficient number of times? what function do you use to figure this out?
>>8341307 The mainstream-mainstream (pop music, sports, gay shit in general) is being broken and now more people expect better conversation, which is why now people do shit like watch entry level bad TV shows like Game of Thrones and the like to make better conversations.
You are kinda socially expected to watch entry level bad TV shows like GoT now.
But you can't always carry a conversation with a TV show so what else will you talk about? That balding science guy you saw that one time talking about time and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Alice(pink) and Bob(blue) are chilling in a space station orbiting a black hole. Alice then decides she has had enough of Bob's bullshit and decides to end herself in the singularity, inside the Black Hole's event horizon(red). Bob gets pissed and after thinking for some time comes to the conclusion that Alice was a cunt so he readies the station's laser canons(green) and fires in a trajectory he knows is going to hit Alice before she is crushed by tidal forces. Bob then goes on with his life in orbit aboard the space station.
Should Bob be accused of murder... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8341058 We don't need more digits of pi than 3.14
People who obsess over that are just autists.
Prime numbers are another story though. Knowing big prime numbers is important because for security reasons, we want to construct long numbers which have reaaaally big primes as factors.
Obviously, right now we have enough prime big primes but in the future the primes that today are big will be too easy to find by big computers and the future algorithms of prime factorization, so mathematicians working... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>8340923 >Kaku has had more than 70 articles published in physics journals such as Physical Review, covering topics such as superstring theory, supergravity, supersymmetry, and hadronic physics. In 1974, Kaku and Prof. Keiji Kikkawa of Osaka University co-authored the first papers describing string theory in a field form.

>>8340883 humans evolved to feel empathy for their peers, and thus a "cruel" eugenics program would likely cause deep emotional distress with large segments of the population, who would then distress all of their friends and family. this looks like it would lower effective productivity of a nation's industry by a large margin.
also eugenics programs in animals do not produce the most "effective" organisms.
16 credit hours and working 40 hours a week. I though I could handle it I'm getting my ass handed to me. People recommend adderall, I don't want to have to rely on it and it's expensive, but i looks like I have to at this point. Anyone have experience using it to power through a large work load? Should I?
I don't have to write my senior thesis this year but given that I like algebra I've been thinking about doing my thesis on that topic.
Has anyone here ever done a senior thesis (or I guess a minor publication as a PhD or PhD student works too) in group theory? In what did you apply it? How much group theory did you know before you were able to get your results?
Math major here so I don't really need to apply it to physics or chem, can basically do it about whatever I want because all... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
List, please, good (Real) Analysis multivolume series with ~1500 pages or more. I begin: 1) Zorich's Analysis (I & II volumes) 2) Amman/Escher's Analysis (I - III volumes) 3) Knapp's Basic Real Analysis and Advanced Real Analysis. ...
Which fields of engineering are the most difficult in terms of mathematical abstraction in the undergraduate level? I already realize all of them are pretty low tier in math until you reach graduate level material.
>until you reach graduate level material. Do they ever go into abstract math? I'd think the more mathematical parts of later engineering are the numeric and algorithmic things, which is going into the opposite of abstraction (different differentiation schemes are something hands on, whereas e.g. defining paracompact topologies is an act of abstracting from some property of the reals.)
My ee professor does research into fractional order differentiation and some kind of work on infinite matrices that i dont know much about and another guy here who ran the ME department worked on new solutions to some type of inverse matricee he had to have to finish his thesis back in the 70s. That kind of stuff seems pretty in depth to me but im no mathematician.
>>8340525 Yeah, for dealing with fractional differential operators you need to set up function and functional spaces that can be equipped with good topologies (i.e. "how can I steal as many theorems from C^1 and C^2, what do I need for that in this autistic case I'm considering") and the second most likely also deals with odd norms.
