Did it help you keep you away from depression? Does it keep your worries at bay? Does it keep your mind at bay? Do you find that you've become more peaceful with yourself? Do you giggle at times you've gotten it wrong? or just laughing at the fact that proof was easy/fun/splendid?

I know the basics. A bit of algebra and small bits of what calculus can be supported by that framework hacked in here and there. But as a whole, I never really learned it. Most of my thinking about "math" and "numbers" has been philosophically oriented.

A cannon fires a professional baseball player 60 degrees from the ground at 80 m/s. The cannon faces a pipe 245 meters away. The pipe is stuck into the ground pointing straight into the air and has a diameter slightly large than a baseball. Could the pitcher in midair throw a baseball so that it goes into the pipe but does not touch the sides? Explain why or why not.
I weigh 105lbs and am 6'6". I want to build a suit that will allow me to fly, preferably like a bird or bat.
How big would the wing span need to be for me to be able to glide from a running and jumping start with no wind. How much force would be need to flap said wings in a way that would cause lift if possible. What are the chances of survival from a 25ft fall if you have a load of wood, metal, pvc pipe, fabric, rubber, and duck tape strapped to your back?

>>7682132 404 error: hope not found. >>7682140 do you have a single fact to back that up? We still don't understand ageing, it will require major cellular reengineering. At best, we'd have to genetically modify human embryos to make immortal people.
Several physicists have presented calculations that show that the second law of thermodynamics will not actually be violated, if a more complete analysis is made of the whole system including the demon. The essence of the physical argument is to show, by calculation, that any demon must "generate" more entropy segregating the molecules than it could ever eliminate by the method described. That is, it would take more thermodynamic work to gauge the speed of the molecules and selectively allow them to pass through the opening between A and B than the amount of energy...

>>7681913 So is accounting, now go back to /g/ with your shitty trade. And they'll take your statement way too literally and belittle you for suggesting that there is a single, always-best data structure. Because they're Computer Scientists and thus don't have a functioning brain.
Kinetic energy So if here was a one giant mass and a bunch or little masses and the one giant masses momentum = the momentum of all the smaller masses
Kinetic energy would be greater for all the smaller masses combined than for the one one giant masses kinetic energy. Because momentum is from a direct linear relationship between mass and speed so as you add more mass the speed reduces as by the laws of physics, yet and the kinetic energy reduces since it's measurement is more dependent on speed since it is derived from work equation in which it uses acceleration...

A German physicist at the University of Edinburgh, Harald Haas, has found a way to turn LEDs into wireless hotspots which have a verified speed of 1Gbps (224 Gbps in lab settings), 100x the speed of WiFi. A HD film could be downloaded in seconds.
LiFi works by visible light communications. When you pass a current through an LED, the LED emits photons. Varying the current to the LED changes the photon intensity. LEDs are semiconductors, meaning the the photon intensity can be varied extremely quickly, and extremely delicately so that the changes in intensity are imperceptible... Comment too long.

Same way a remote control works with a television. You need a LED in the computer to send info back to the hub, and it needs a relatively unimpeded path back.
Alternatively, since most bandwidth is downloads, you could use visible light only to transmit from hub to computer, and the usual radio frequencies to go from computer to hub (or bypass the hub and go directly back to the main router).
How do you guys view the relationship between science and philosophy? I know that Nietzsche was pretty critical of the scientific method, going so far as to say physics and evolution are just interpretations of the world, (to be fair Nietzsche was critical of objective truth in general) On the other side theoretical physicist, Richard Feynman's view was that ultimately why questions aren't useful at all in explaining the world, because they imply the presence of purpose or intention, where in fact it's not a given that those things are always true or present. Which... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7681771 Nobody's got any answers. But at least mathematical reasoning defines it's terms. It's what we've got so far. "Philosophers" just have to stop claiming conclusive data and start recognizing that what they've got is a more accessible terminology of description of the history of thought. They're on the cutting edge of nothing. Same with religion. It's perfectly fesable if somebody needs characters and magic to keep their attention and can systematically sift what is allegorical...
