Just WTF is this fuck? How can we came to this absurdic conclusion?
IMO this dramatic moment in science is when common sense and understanding were expelled from physics. After that point break, physicists feel free to create any metaphysic and idealistic concept as long as it explain the experiment.
Indeed, the limits of our brain to comprehend the quantum realm are well known. You have to let go of classical physics as you perceive them, because shit simply doesn't work that way in the quantum realm. If it explains the experiment, is well tested, and can be replicated, we can prove these unintuitive phenomena to be reality.
>>8158175 >>8158178 If it turns out 50/50 with a small lead for remain, would that be unlikely enough to be considered suspicious? I mean it considering how close the election in Austria was it seems somewhat sketchy to me.
Hi IQ guy here (top 1% of respondents in 3 occupational tests) with brain damage (to cerebellum following two separate strokes induced by a vertebral arterial dissection)
Cognitive functions for the most part unaffected - abstract reasoning still very good and verball (written) expression remains strong. memory (short and long term) patchy to say the best though. I occasionally lose my train of thought when talking. have difficulties managing multiple thought stream simulataneously (particularly in high pressure situations). If tired feel vague and wooly headed.

Great! Thanks so far! I get the counter example and the generalizaton of the counter example. Still, is there another "general" proof that would kind of rewrite equation (1) and show that if (2) was correct too, a weird contradiction would result?
I have a college entry exam tomorrow. I need some good high school level resources on: Limits (indeterminations, continuity) ,derivatives, complex numbers (plotting, conditions), basic geometry (3d, 2d), combinatronics permutations and probabilities, gauss' curve, trigonometry, exponential and logarithmic functions.
Please /sci/ help me i promise ill give back to the scientific community
What makes a person themselves? Is this consciousness separate from all personality and behavioral traits? I.e. if a person's "consciousness" could be moved from one carrier to another, would any traits survive the transfer, or would they essentially be a new person? And finally, is there any possibility of such a transfer ever happening?
>please no spiritual shit, looking for ideas with at least a little bit of plausible basis. Thank you for answers.
The integrated information theory is pretty much the best explanation we have right now for consciousness.
As I understand it, if a physical system of inputs and outputs is sufficiently complex and integrated, a consciousness naturally arises. However, the system must be very causally connected, meaning my consciousness is distinct from your consciousness and just because two people think very alike it doesn't create a consciousness between them or merge their consciousnesses.
Also, you can't not be conscious. There's no such thing as inexperience,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8157248 >What makes a person themselves? their unique biology, history and location. >would any traits survive the transfer, or would they essentially be a new person? well if you change the biology but preserve their history and location, then only the biology would change, no?
what do you mean by "new person?" you aren't the same person that started this silly thread, your history and biology have changed since then....
This question is probably a bit amateur for this community, but for some reason I'm having a hard time finding the surface area for this shape. I'm digging out a garden plot and my sister gave me somewhat odd measurements to go off of. I've drawn them out.
I keep getting different answers depending on the technique I used. I think it's 948 square feet but I also got 870 square feet.
OK I'll bite. Draw a line from the bottom left corner to top right. This divides it into two triangles. One triangle is a right triangle so the base and height are easy to determine. The hypotenuse, which is the third side of the other triangle, can be found by pythagorean theorem. Thus you know the lengths of all three sides of the other triangle, and can find its area using, e.g.,Heron's formula.
>>8157049 Ok i'll start. Using overly complicated rube goldberg machines to sustain our civilization instead of oil and fossil fuels. It may take up a lot of space, but with the technology and capabilities we have now, I think it could be done.
>>8157060 This is actually really genius. If we have enough laborers constantly building the future path of the apparatus faster than it completes its motion (not hard if it's sufficiently slow), we will have literally unlimited kinetic energy.
We could make a giant circular tunnel like the LHC, and have a few hundred or a thousand people constantly resetting large domino-esque blocks.
I've been reading up on vitamin D the past couple of days since someone said being deficient, which I am, might be a bigger problem than I thought. But there are lots of places with crazy different standards for the amount you should take. I've seen one place say 600 IU daily and another say 6000 IU daily. So how much do I take?
Basically you can take as much as you want, it's one of the few vitamins that doesn't really have a hard limit, just take like 1000 and see how that works, I know people who take obscene amounts of it but I dunno if that's ever a safe idea even though apparently you can
This probably belongs on another board, but an anon a while back gave me a link to a wonderful place where I could read textbooks and whatnot for free. I'm trying to read up on tensors and whatnot (inb4 brainlet, I know) and pic related or something similar seems like a good place to start.
As a poorfag, I'd appreciate a link to the land of piracy I can't dig up on Google for some reason.
>>8156330 The atomic sctructure of the glass does not absorb electrons so the photon particles go right through it without losing energy, but its also reflective to a degree, also there are lots of other shit in the glass. So I'd say its between 1% to 4% sunlight energy loss overall.
I appreciate the /thread OP. I'm a pretty memecore transhumanist so I've hopped on the cyborg bandwagon Never heard about animal hybrid shit, but whatever keeps our consciousness going legitimately fucking do it.

Anyone else getting really pissed when they see something like this? Does ANYONE think about how life for this kid will be like when he grows up? It neither will be normal or good and I'm really tired of society pretending there is nothing worse than death, when it is obvious that euthanizing cases like this would be merciful and generous. Just when will we overcome this shallow standard of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8156135 Either way we simply need experiments like this. And down's syndrome people? Maybe they'll be useful for fucking asteroid mining because of X. You seem to not know that mutation is fucking indispensable part of evolution. GFTO of my /sci/.
>>8155890 Cows have 60 chromosomes, which is 4 short of a horse, so this mix will never be viable.
You would have better luck trying to cross a horse with a skunk, or a cow with a goat. The former is unlikely due to the genetic distance between the species, you might get lucky with certain cow/goat hybrids, but they are almost certain to be sterile if they do survive.
Where's the nuclear industry going? Is studying nuclear engineering viable today? How does it compare with other types of engineering, such as electrical and mechanical, in terms of job prospects and reputation?
TLDR: retard needs help reading mathematically rigorous literature.
I'm a math major and as awkward as it's going to sound I have difficulty understanding Mathematically rigorous texts/literature. This problem usually arises when reading older texts, as most new texts are a bit watered down and don't propose as many theorems or proofs as older texts do. Or if they do they're written in a clearer manner.
