So if basic income doesn't become a thing will billions of people just starve to death because they can't afford to buy food?

Also after AI becomes a thing do we even need to have a population higher than 500 million people?

Well, alternatively, the US could also just quit subsidizing useless corn fuel and put our maize back in the food supply while clamping down on commodities speculation.

who says these kids get shoved into these majors? Many of them choose these majors because biology and English are boring af. Most of those majors spend more time solving differential equations than they do integrating. I know this question is troll but couldn't you be a bit more creative?

"Scientists investigate that which already is;

Is Planck length/time a valid solution to Zeno's paradox?
>>
>>7708213
Only if the position something can occupy in space is quantized.

If it moves to some intermediate value during one of the universe's ticks, it just gets pushed to the closest open space. This would also explain why some quantum phenomena seems to have future actions affect the outcomes of prior events. If there's some sort of buffer to sort out conflicts and interactions.

It's obviously inspired by quantization error as we observe it, and probably not the case. But it doesn't reconcile...
>>
>>7708219
does reconcile*
>>
>>7708213
Well, a discrete space and time would sort it out, but there's no reason to assume they are described by the Planck units; they're just what we get by multiplying various fundamental constants involved in general relativity with fundamental constants involved in quantum field theory to get an idea of the scale where quantum gravity effects should be large enough to be relevant.

We aren't gonna be able to write it down for you. It's a 1 with 10^30 zeros after it. That is, 1 followed by 1000000000000000000000000000000 zeros. You don't really need to think of the size of a number to work with it though.

Why does everyone have an incredibly high IQ? I'm not asking "Why is everyone incredibly smart?" but why everyone has a genius level IQ these days. Are we all just good at solving problems?
Here's a passage from a paper I was reviewing today: " I could list the great minds through the ages that had depression or anxiety and were greatly successful, but that doesn’t really make my point. The point is that someone like me, with severe depression, anxiety, and mood disorder, who also happens to (and perhaps as a result of the way my mind functions...

Hi /sci/,
I'm currently working full time and I have to study after a long day's work.
Before I started at my new job I could study from 8 to 4 while fasting. I found that fasting really increased my focus.
Now, however, I can't do this and found that fasting for prolonged periods of time makes my focus worse, so I need to find a new diet pattern, and maybe a whole new diet as I currently eat lots of sugars and that can't be good for the mind.
Any suggestions? How do I maximize my mental gains?

I've always found that I unintentionally fast when I'm focused. You just don't think about eating when you're engaged in your studies or project or whatever you're working on.

I gained weight working somewhere where I was bored most of the time. Lost weight when I was working hard with deadlines etc. I wasn't stressed, I guess I just subconsciously thought "I have better things to do than eat".

But if you're having issues concentrating, try preparing a few...
