Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never start a thread in which the title image is more interesting than the post"!

Since time is all perspective based on position and direction/speed of travel that suggests that free will is an illusion. Your future has already happened in the perspective of someone across the galaxy moving in the opposite direction.
Doesnt this also sugest that theres a mathematical equation that can predict the future as well?
>>7746269 According to the demarcation criterion of pseudoscience originally proposed by Lakatos, a theory is pseudoscientific if it fails to make any novel predictions of previously unknown phenomena, in contrast with scientific theories, which predict novel fact(s). Progressive scientific theories are those which have their novel facts confirmed and degenerate scientific theories are those whose predictions of novel facts are refuted. As he put it:
"A given fact is explained scientifically only if a new fact... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
As a metaphor it can be said that the Riemann Zeta function is that where you have a mechanical bull and it's rider; the rider plays the function of meta-physical resistance to the bulls tetrating speed, the tetration is caused by the allocation of input compared to the riders proficiency, but there's a catch, the resistance that the rider portrays is created as the input of energy is put up is increased exponentially to the point that the bull bulls energy distribution when put into further energy...

Well, almost a month ago my mom got the idea of doing an iq test, so we contacted mensa and we did one. Well, three days ago my mom and I received our letter of acceptance. Turns out my iq is barely above the minimum requirement and my mom's iq is probably higher than the test limit. I'm a physics student and my mom is a entrepreneur. She managed to get out of poverty by selling candies. I can't even get out of college. So /sci/, do I even get any chance of succeeding in life?
ps: my mom can do every assignment that I get on college. sry about any mistake... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>When they were born and evolved the first supermassive black holes in the universe?
Astronomers from Tel Aviv University (TAU) identified when there was the cosmic era of the first black holes of rapid growth in the history of the universe. In general, the galaxies in the universe, including the Milky Way, host supermassive black holes, ranging in mass from one million to 10 billion times the mass of our sun. To find them, astronomers look for huge amounts of radiation emitted for gas during the periods in which the black holes remain... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Look around you... the carpet, the walls, the desk, the computer itself... these are all constructs of the shared reality of our species. They do not exist, except in our minds. When you leave the room, they turn back into reality, resonant particles. When you return to the room, your mind recreates them as the shared constructs given to you by your ancestral lineage and the kindred consciousness that abides alongside you in this floating matrix.
tldr; ? if you were the only one of your species left alive, for you existence would cease to exist.
If we're living in a computer, then I think it would take a very powerful computer. The most powerful computer we know of is the biological brain. Wouldn't it be more appropriate to say that all we are and experience is the dream of an unfathomably intelligent living being?
Are our dreams reality for somebody? Are the people we dream about alive in some way, if only when we're asleep? Maybe the reason people aren't aware and conscious in their dream is because it's all being shared by the people you're dreaming about.
>>7745973 i like what susskind has been saying about black hole surface area and information density, so i can see how it could happen, but visualising it is hard without having everything straight morphing
>>7745970 I'd prefer it if abstract algebra was taught the same way as general topology.
General topology teaches students to reason about topologies in general instead of a narrow handful of pretty cases. For instance a student of general topology has to be capable of creating topologies to satisfy any type of criteria off the top of their head as opposed to regurgitating some named topology they memorized as an example at some point.
On the other hand, in an abstract algebra class students never try to construct... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

A very small amount of cyanide is in apple seeds, but even then the seed has to be crushed or broken open in some way to release the cyanide. Apple seeds just pass right through humans unless the shell is broken. I think the amount of cyanide is so small you'd need a ridiculous amount of seeds to get anything substantial. Pic related however is what you want if you want to get cyanide from plants.
Tihange-1 and Tihange-2 are old fission reactors build in 1975 in Hoei, Belgium (see pic). Doel 1, Doel 2, Doel 3 are old fission reactors build in 1975 in the harbor of Antwerp.
They just started Tihange 2 in September.
A short list of what went wrong:
September 2015 - Tihange-1 waterpump failure. Reactor was shut down and it took 10 days to fix. Afterwards the reactor was restarted.
18th November. A fire was blazing in the Tihange-1. The reactor was shut down. Fire was put out. Reactor is up again.
MEANWHILE IN ANTWERP
24th November. Waterleak at the Doel 3 reactor in Antwerp. It's under control
24th November. The 1975 built Doel 2 reactor is made active again.
Tomorrow, 27th November, they are going to restart the 1975 built Doel 1 nuclear reactor.
Summed up; the highly unstable government of Belgium has just restarted 5 old nuclear reactors from 1975 and multiple technical failures have already happend in the last 2 months. I have a feeling this is not going to end well. These old reactors are VERY outdated. If a major accident happens here it might mean the end of all fission.... Luckily I live in the most northern province of the Netherlands. How far would a nuclear fallout zone be ?
