As I Neuroscience Major, I'm conducting research on Schizophrenia for my thesis, and I was curious to know if anybody had any knowledge on Chromosome 6, specifically the gene "C4". Any knowledge about books/journals/etc would be greatly appreciated!
>>8506425 u overestimate the human mind which can only think one thing at a time. it does poorly with complex things like equations. for instance, divide 282 by 13 and answer both quotient and remainder, a fairly easy thing to do with maths on paper. youll see my point. we re weak..thats why we use language so much because how incredibly stupid we are. infact so stupid most of us dont even realize our stupidity. thank god for computers.
Can somebody please describe, without any robotic assumptions, the object present in human perception that leads to the idea of a soul/will/being? I've tried asking this question in a dozen different forms and every time all the responses I get are like something spat out from a machine. People talk about all the ideas that come from it, but I need a perfectly naive description of the object itself without any assumptions to its nature.
>>8505709 Light sources are bright. Its much easier to see the light refracted off of things. For instance you dont actually see light at an angle, rather fine particles in the air that catch it and outline the light, showing the path it takes.
I'm attempting to read through Lang's Basic Mathematics book, but the way he words his problems is odd. I had to search up the first practice question online because I couldn't understand it, but figured out it was very easy when someone helped me understand the wording.
What is a good way to wrap my head around this book? Everyone keeps telling me that this is the goat of all mathematics books that go over basic algebra, but is it really?

There's a small colony on Mars, and many outposts on the moons of the solar system.
Telescopes are insanely good and many earth - like planets have been found, but we can travel at 0.1c top and all of them are out of reach (this could be wrong if proxima b turns out to be inhabitable).
AGI runs the world. Humans are a small minority compared to how many conscious, intelligent artificial beings inhabit the world. Most humans are also different compared to today; aging and cancer are a thing of the past, and prosthetics and neural implants are the norm.
Religions are very popular, even more than today, with new cults being developed and prospering.
The average citizen spends 90% of his waking life in FIVR.
Some communities of "old style people" are still present around the world: just like mormons today, they use very limited technologies and AI.
>>8507947 >https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenic_petroleum_origin ?The weight of evidence currently shows that petroleum is derived from ancient biomass. However, it still has to be established conclusively, which means that abiogenic alternative theories of petroleum formation cannot be dismissed.

Got my IQ tested and looking back at all my scores I scored at 125 for my verbal IQ. The psychiatrist that tested me said it was impressive, but I never hear anyone talking about verbal IQ when discussing intelligence quotients.
If you have a high verbal IQ what are you genuinely superior at than most people? What comes easier to you, things like public speaking or is it deeper than that? Should I look for a job that this will benefit me in?
>>8507188 I suppose I do notice those tendencies. I love to debate and I'm thinking about applying to law school, but I might just stick with getting into the business field. Law school is just too damn expensive but with those abilities I am considering it so I could get a job that I could be skilled at
hey /sci/, question for y'all: so we all know the debate about euclid's fifth postulate, is it right, is it wrong, is either argument even provable, etc., but non-euclidean geometry makes no sense. it's built entirely upon the plane being a disk (hyperbolic), or an infinite sphere (elliptical). a plane is defined as a flat, two-dimensional surface that extends infinitely. if a plane is 2-D and flat, how the fuck do you end up with a spherical one and convex bubble triangles? shouldn't that not be allowed to happen? doesn't that break the definition of plane?
>>8507175 Even straight lines curve in on themselves at infinity, if your measure of signed distance (displacement) is restricted to the one point compactification of the real line, instead of just the real line itself.
So think of non Euclidean geometry as what happens when your measure of displacement is based in a FINITE one point compactification of the reals. As in, one where infinity is a finite number, and any numbers beyond that are undefined because that's where it curves back around.
So yeah, a plane... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8507156 I know some other parents that do. They say it's basically just math worksheets. You can get similar stuff off the web easily. The only thing it seems Kumon adds to this is that it gives you an incentive to have your kid actually do the worksheets. If you are paying for it, you are more likely to follow through.
If you can download worksheets, make a schedule, and keep your kid up with that schedule, then you don't need Kumon.
Why do you guys mention particular classes as if they're the same at all universities when the courses are much harder and have more content in higher ranked universities? Calc 2 at Princeton is different to Calc 2 at some random state school.
Also there is the huge irony that whenever someone (usually a /g/ or CS person) boasts about how many people failed out of their courses, it only signals that they go to a low quality university and are surrounded by stupid people. It doesn't signal that the material was hard.
>>8507086 That's not true though. High ranked courses are just as dumbed down as low ranked courses. The real benefit to high ranked courses is that the level of exclusivity actually means that it's really valuable to network with the people attending there.
Woe be unto the fool who goes to a prestigious university and doesn't network.
Is "hard light" possible? The idea of condensing photons into a "solid" state. Think forerunner technology from halo, or the mass effect holo-armor and omniblade. Or the duel disks and solid holograms from the most recent yu-gi-oh. I find it extremely fascinating, as it has major implications for a civilization's advancement.
>>8506288 "Hard light" is not the omnitool in Mass Effect. For the amount of people that played the game I am amazed how much bullshit it still posted. The Omnitool Blade is nothing more than metal particles pressed together by eezo field to form a sharp thing to stab someone.
As for the interface itself we hare not too far off since it is nothing more than display technology that works by detecting your had position,you can notice that they dont write on it or some shit,just pick options that are already... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The number e is an important mathematical constant that is the base of the natural logarithm: the unique number whose natural logarithm is equal to one. It is approximately equal to 2.71828, and is the limit of (1 + 1/n)n as n approaches infinity, an expression that arises in the study of compound interest. It can also be calculated as the sum of the infinite series.
The real number e is irrational. Euler proved this by showing that its simple continued fraction expansion is infinite. (See also Fourier's proof that e is irrational.) Furthermore, by the Lindemann–Weierstrass... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8506379 please. Gauss was a mathematical craftsman, sure, but Euler was, is, and probably always will be head and shoulders above everyone else.
I have a theory that it's not because he was simply the smartest mathematician to ever live, but he was an extremely intelligent mathematical genius who was alive at the time when the Hindu numbers, logarithms, algebra, and everything necessary for serious analysis to begin was all set.

No idea. All I know is I pretty much need the stuff to function academically.

I've tried going without for months. Its hell. I feel so slow and unable to focus its rediculous. To get through working during the day I'd need at least two naps and even then fall asleep frequently while working, even after 8+ hours of sleep.
is it possible to literally not be able to understand certain topics in mathematics? i'm reading through my notes on group theory and it's just a wall of text i can hardly make sense of and i can't retain any of the definitions so i keep having to re-read everything. the same is true for most algebra, but particularly the more abstract topics
am i just not intelligent enough for this? i used to enjoy mathematics because it was easy and intuitive but now neither of those things are true and i'm not really sure what to do. obviously... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>8507364 I don't know about measuring but you can see the curve of the water at whatever distance the horizon at sea level is as that is what the horizon is. you can see objects travel over the curve when they go behind the horizon.
