>>7644113 Answer from an actual game programmer. Look at it this way AoE2 runs at 30 frames per second. So it's actually a turn based game with a finite grid. So you could solve it for each turn/frame in the same way you would solve chess. You could give all the variables and relation between all variables a cost. Then recursively you could iterate between all possible outcomes of the turn. Then choose the best outcome. For that frame and calculate this for all upcoming frames. It would be computationally very heavy but not impossible.
Can someone explain in an intuitive way how newtons laws tell you that a particles trajectory is determined for all future time? I.e. that if you specify a position at t=0, you know where that particles going forever?
The first law is a special case where F = 0, meaning that a = 0. The third law doesn't matter if you are thinking about a single particle.
The second law says that if you know the force on a particle at all times, then you know the acceleration at all times. If you know the acceleration, then you know how much the velocity is changing. If you know the velocity, then you know how much the position is changing.
It's just a cascade of information.
That's it, really. So you need to know the original position and velocity,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
> space travel that could slash a journey to the moon down to 4 HOURS sounds too good to be true. But if it's real, I truly believe that we were born in the perfect time to witness the golden age of technological revolution of humanity.
>>7643640 Many animals have a way of identifying family members, to avoid breeding with them; and a way of identifying things which are too different and thus that they shouldn't try to breed with (like other species). Racism is just the latter such mechanism being triggered.
Are there any devices available that prevent AC from feeding back into a line after a device is turned on / off, etc?
I know very little about electricity. My mother is concerned that ripple in the otherwise (relatively) smooth 60 hz sine wave is interfering with her sleep and general health. I don't really have much of an opinion, I'd imagine it's probably emitting radio waves in a general band that's fairly small. Not certain what a given magnetic field flux and field strength would do, and my own health is so trashed to begin with, I don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I used to think that it was incredibly weak and the reason why people (unfairly) thought of social science as being soft and non-scientific. However I'm currently doing an MSc at a university where they have a strong tradition of qualitative research and they've pushed it pretty hard, and I can now see that it has some value and can answer some questions that quantitative research can't. If I do a PhD, I might look to do it using qualitative methods because it seems easier and more interesting. What do you think?
Brain uploading is the Great Filter, you cannot pass it without an uploaded civilization.
You'll die in world war 3 or watch modern society unravel under misguided policy if you stay human.
As an upload you escape the human condition, population densities can be magnitudes higher and everyone can live like a billionaire which ensures social cohesion. Biowarfare immuniy, chemical warfare immunity, food safety a nonissue, the integrity of he biosphere a nonissue. You quitely upload and secede from normal society, storing the hardware in a remote secured location,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The first generation of brain uploads would be designed by meat brains, they would try to replicate meat stuff like emotions and individuality, but the computer brains would quickly realize there's no point to these limitations and would redesign themselves to be a single hivemind processing unit. So basically humanity would be dead anyway.
>>7643609 Then we are back to the classic Theseus' paradox. What makes "you" you? The cells in your body are being constantly replaced by newer ones. Maybe the constant flow of electrical impulses and memories are your identity, but that can be carried over too.
