currently reading this, does anyone know if there's any literature or classified research that studies the real time neurochemical effects of torture/extreme trauma? it's interesting to read about the post effects but I'd love to read about that happens in your mind chemically RIGHT when something awful is happening. I know this kind of research is ethically questionable and in general challenging to accomplish but I have to imagine someone, somewhere has hooked a person up to an MRI machine and made them extremely uncomfortable.
>>7656474 it's conceptually fascinating. I'd also love to see an MRI reading of like an extremely high LSD trip. I think that's ethically sound under volunteer assumption and it would produce very similar reactions (being trapped in a machine on a lot of psychedelics would make you freak the FUCK out)
This is the book we use for my Linear Algebra 2 course, and I think it is a terrible terrible book. Most of the Theorems or proofs are given in one or two lines, and many of them are missing proofs (to be done as an exercise). Believe it or not, it is a meme book with the "its trivial" and "the rest is left to the reader as an exercise". fuck no, a book should tell me all the information, then give me chances to apply my learning, not a "fill in the blanks". Also there are no answers for proofs whatsoever, and limited answers on the numerical computation. /rant
haha i also hate this book, i'm glad i downloaded and didn't have to pay the ~$200 CAD at the book store. I imagine it's mostly designed for teachers to base their lectures off of. But yeah, this is one of the worst text books I've encountered
I've learned computations and understand proofs through math.stackexchange for the most part
>>7656027 Eh, its complicated, neurobiology is definitely the wrong word as plants lack anything resembling nerves or brain matter, but its definitely interesting in its own way, its all hormones and chemical messengers and symbiosis with other organisms to a complexity level that is truely impressive. I know of a study that actually took a bacteria discovered in Alaska, which produced anti-biotics and herbicides, exposed it to plant extract, and observed that it ceased to produce herbicide.
In other words, some bacteria... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Egg whites contain antibacterial lysozymes. I've designed an experiment where I'm going to put paper discs soaked in egg white solution into bacterial agar jelly dishes to see how potent the antibacterial effect is...
... but I didn't consider the fact that egg whites themselves are comprised of proteins and other nutrients which are food for bacteria.
>>7655860 the fact that the eggs are full of nutritious/delicious proteins is exactly why the antibacterials are there in the first place - to fend off hungry parasprites. this experiment can show the effectiveness of these lysozymes in their egg drop soup served on paper plates, but if you want to find their effectiveness in other environments... well, you know.
Is the Boltzmann Brain theory babby first discover or is it the end game? The idea that we exist because of a stochastic fluctuation in a higher-entropy universe sounds very appealing to my brain. Am I being deceived by my desire for answers or did Boltzmann discover The Answer for us?
>>7655674 The same reason we don't do human drug testing until after testing on animals. Imagine if the procedure isn't 100%, or something wrong is copied. You've just turned a viable human into a retard.
>>7655674 If we gene edit we will eventually erase the identity of our species and replace ourselves with superior organisms.
Is that really what we want? I would say yes because fuck being biologically mortal. Some ethicsfags will inevitably write misconstrued thesis' on it because they couldn't find a better topic for their shitty philosophy degree though.
