>it's almost night
How do we go about to keep the Sun permanently shining?
In a financially responsible manner of course.
I can't endure together such a miserable life and early nightfalls.
I need to look outside and feel like there's still time to fix my life.
I know that this question has only a proper approach: from neurosciences. Psychology will always have a problematic approach to this question due to his 'only empirical' nature. I don`t even consider phenomenology nor psychoanalysis if we are regarding the question scientifically.
But, I think 'abstract' thinking is not a specific mental process per se.
I explain myself: I believe this process is the sum of other two more 'mundane' processes: memory and fantasy.
I mean by fantasy the capacity to take some elements from memory...

What field of engineering has the most active research? I want to get a PhD eventually so I can be called doctor, but I want to get paid while doing it.
Any thoughts on Math Doctor Bob? I've watched many of his videos now, and I think they are outstanding.
Extensive and excellent for college-level math. I salute his effort.
Will we really ever conquer Mars? When?
Why do people say mathematics is "beautiful"?
Are they just autistic? Or are they fedora neckbeards who believe that being "fascinated" by mathematics makes them super smart? What's the deal?

Do they realize how fucking disgusting they are?
Why do people like to dress up as other people? Why has natural selection seen fit to reward us with dopamine for this?
Evolution "likes" to try every trick in the book.
Wanting to have sex with an animal, or having someone take a poo on you before sex, or wanting to be degraded before sex, etc. may not have an evolutionary advantage, but then again, who knows?
Coming down out of the trees seemed like a bad idea for a bunch of apes in a continent filled with lions, but look how far we got...
>Wanting to have sex with an animal, or having someone take a poo on you before sex, or wanting to be degraded before sex, etc. may not have an evolutionary advantage, but then again, who knows?
Natural selection works through removing traits which prevent the offspring from successively reproducing, if the trait doesn't prevent successful reproduction there will be no reason why it won't be passed onto the next generation.
Everything I see written about the subject of quarternions says that for
Q = A + Bi + Cj + Dk
has the condition that
i^2 = j^2 = k^2 = ijk = -1
How can this be true that ijk = -1?
If i = sqrt (-1) and j = sqrt (-1) and k = sqrt (-1)
Ijk = sqrt (-1)*sqrt (-1)*sqrt (-1)
That does not equal -1.
Is this 19th century trolling?
>If i = sqrt (-1) and j = sqrt (-1) and k = sqrt (-1)
Thats your problem right there. The condition i^2 = j^2 = k^2 = ijk = -1 is strong, thats how that quarternion units are defined, similar to how the i is defined with i^2 = -1, or some equivalent form, with the complex numbers.
Why do so many people just cram and then forget material in early level mathematics like algebra? These are always the ones who end up having trouble in calc courses.
I'm making software to analyze boards and threads on 4chan.
How do I measure intelligence of a board? I was thinking of something including image ratio, length of posts and sentimental objectivity.
Also, what other metrics should I consider?
The only thing considered a measure for intelligence is the intelligence quotient, there are tests for that. If you want to determine the intelligence of a poster by their posts, you need labelled data to train a regressor. You don't have that. Everything else is just guesswork.
Anyway, if you want to look at interesting quantities by themselves you may look at features such as:
>Number of different words per thread
>Length of posts

Yeah, I already got half of those you said.
A really cool one would be something along the lines of keywords, words that are not on the list of 10,000 of the most popular English ones, but the most popular on the board. I wonder what the outcome would be for different boards. I also want to include plotting graphs. And I don't want to do anything with machine learning just yet.
I don't want to die, when will we invent immortality?
Don't do it OP, this will kill or seriously injure you (this is worse because then you'll have a life of suffering from knowing that you listened to some idiot on the internet and hurt yourself because of it) and be crippled.
He wants to NOT die, not to NOT worry about dying.
And the solution to that is simple, just eat well and avoid dangers to your life and you'll live for a reasonable amount of time just like everyone else barring incredibly poor luck and/or a freak accident that kills you.

>What future tech are you most looking forward to?
The 'tech' that cures our brains of the need for stupidity like 'religion' and 'spirituality' and 'racism' and 'sexism' and all the other stupid ass-backwards shit that keeps dragging us back to acting like animals and stalling our overall evolution.
Doesn't evolution entail that life has higher forms that humans probably can't comprehend?

That's scary ... Is this true? Or is it a complete lie?
Hey /sci/. Your en/g/ineer brother here
I was snooping around /x/ and stumbled upon this.
Seems to me to be a bunch of nonsense
What's up with this though? Pretty weird
consider the following
is it possible that some tens of thousands of years ago, some of our ancestors who left africa for the middle east and later europe were on average more intelligent than those that stayed behind because realising that it was a good idea to leave africa could not be done without a certain level of intelligence? and as a result of that, is it possible that "native" africans are more likely to be be of lower intelligence?
Please don't bring ancestral dna circle jerking to this board; we had threads that got deleted and people banned left and right from /pol/ and /int/. Let's not shit this board up with these kinds of matters.
To answer your question, there's been studies from the other side that Europeans didn't come from Africa but rather everyone started in a different continent; rather than the WE WUZ AFRIKANZ meme perpetuated by the lefty scientists.
Your thesis is possible. It's also possible that certain parts of Africa evolved and everyone else just were degenerates or became degenerates due to degradation of culture and life.
It's also possible you, the OP, may be an artificial construct and that I'm just a dog slobbering all over his computer smashing his head to make this coherent and educated post. Who the fuck knows, anything is possible at this point.
I think the real question is not to ask whether Africa has idiots or not but rather how can we help terraform the continent. The biggest issue there is the lack of irrigatable crops and almost no biodiversity in the desert areas in middle of the continent
Anyone got an info graphic on classes in a physics major?
Why is math so hard?
Should a person with a two digit IQ even bother trying to learn math?
/sci/, are there any scientific methods that would help me increase my focus? I have trouble concentrating for more than 10 minutes. My mind just wonders and I do something else after working on something. Is there a way for me to improve?
Is there anything more autistic than computer science/programming job listings? Just came across one that went something like this:
>must have seen Star Wars trilogy x number of times and dislike the prequels
I've seen other ones that basically imply you must be an epic memer and meme around the office all day with your coworkers and know epic pop culture references. I get that they're trying to be funny or show a casual atmosphere, but it doesn't belong in a job listing and it completely puts me off of even applying.

>must have a good sense of humour
>tfw my humour is all black and that's basically the extent of it
Would get me fired if they even heard a whiff of it, definitely off-putting - can't tolerate normie """humour""" Although most find mild black comedy funny, but the good stuff is something not many would find amusing.
Does /sci/ prefer whiteboards or blackboards?
I haven't met anyone who prefers whiteboards over here so it's a fucking mystery why they're so popular.
Is this just my country sucking or do whiteboards also plague where you live?
>not writing on glass masterrace
writing on boards are for brainlets who couldn't evolve beyond the beauty of writing on elegant glass
I started uni this year and I love whiteboards so much after 12 years of blackboards. everything is much, much cleaner and they're almost a joy to write on. why do people prefer blackboards?
/sci/ memes, post em'.

>yfw you inherited the smart genes from your mom but your dad is a brainlet and he refuses to believe you when you tell him you only need to study for a day or two before the exam to get good grades and he insists you have to spend two hours a day every day reviewing your notes and lecture slides
why is my dad such a brainlet? they should all be gassed desu...
I never studied for an exam before college. In college I would study the day before the exam.
You're a brainlet for even considering needing two days to study and your dad is a brainlet's brainlet.
You should be able to solve this,
Do you think it is lamentable that scientific studies about racial differences are effectively banned?
