  1. Look at the crack-pottery you turned my thread into, I blame OverUnityDeviceUAP , but Kardashev6 makes a valid point which isn't crack-pottery. The simulation creation of the universe to change the universe to the point that it was, was originally put forward by TomKalbfus, Super Polymath, and several others and was highly discussed in http://www.scienceforums.com/topic/31020-is-time-travel-possible/ and http://www.scienceforums.com/topic/30513-how-to-build-a-time-machine/ along with a wormhole design to actually travel to the past, so Kardashev6 I think your on the right track. The conclusion is you must transmit your information to a previous time or change the future to the information of the past, I would prefer to transmit your information to the past but there are certain issues with getting the information to the past.

    Those are good quality reference url's, Victor. TY

  2. Ty for such a prompt response Gahd! I am fascinated by new state of the art methods. I have been reading a lot about superconductivity (also superfluidity). Room temperature solutions would be great to lower energy consumption from what I read. Resistance, as you know, in an electronic circuit can cause waste.


    TX again!

  3. I hit a paywall ($31.50). Is there any free publications available (that you know of)? Or is it hot off the press and only available to read for a fee?


    Seems very interesting either way! Especially for remote and under developed nations. Do you think this would still work in regions like Anarctica where science stations reside? Thinking of regions that have long periods of darkness sometimes. Silly me cannot remember if I have that backwards...those regions may have periods of too much daylight?

  4. Ex, that is one good article, ty! It mentions Arthur C. Clarke and Elvis (the king) so that is a bonus. I saved it for future reading again.


    I always felt sad for those lacking hearing ability. I assumed that they may feel like oddities amongst those that can hear. Then one day I thought about the cosmos. To the best of our knowledge most of the universe lacks sound...at least as we understand it. Empty space and inside stars do not appear to make sound. When I think this way, it is us (those who can hear) the real oddities. Those lacking hearing more closely resemble what is normal in The Cosmos.


    Either way, I wish all could enjoy music as it is intended! Same with all human senses...especially vision:)

  5. Exchemist,


    First I apologize to TK for inserting my question to you here, I hope it is not bad form.


    Question to the pro (you). My whole life I have heard about a styrofoam cup discarded in the environment can last 10k years (from memory). Is that true? Is it because it's white and reflects light poorly (thus not aiding in decomposition)? Could the pigment be changed darker and promote earlier decomposition? Or, is their an alternative chemical composition that would break down quicker?

    TX in advance and again, TK...I apologize.

  6. Music is a peculiar thing. Some songs pep me up...some relax me...some make me sad...some make me sick.


    In simplicity, music is just an arrangement of musical notes. However, I guess one needs go a step further. Since a 4 year old child banging hands on a piano, while someone writes it out, is an arrangement of musical notes. So, I guess it must include, pleasing to the ear(s). At least to the listener's ear(s).


    I enjoy multiple genre's...yet I really do not enjoy every song from any given band or artist. The closest I come is the Rolling Stones or Led Zepplin perhaps. I enjoy almost all offered.


    I can state with confidence...when a song changes my mood from negative, to positive...I realize just how powerful music can be to us humans. For that I am very thankful:)

  7. In the USA many cities have used incinerators for decades. I always wondered if they capture the heat energy and use it for boilers (water) and extract thermal heat out of it.


    I know you said not physical...but using a chemical reaction, as you offer as example, is physical.


    Also, a shoe example can be very useful despite you not meaning it to be a solution in your thread. I always appreciated the idea of taking old auto tires, punching out a right/left sole footprint and making a useful sandal product.


    Last, I thought landfills (unrecycled trash) were intended to go under a chemical change over time from decomposing? I know some materials may not decompose and those that do may take decades. Still, it is a process in use...at least in the USA.

  8. How about antimatter as an energy source? In principle, I conclude that clusters of antimatter may exist within. Or outside, our observable universe. Clumps, pockets, nebulas or however you state it. Undiscovered/undetected by today's technology.


    I understand there is no observation evidence...we do not observe annialations of matter-antimatter in our view of the Cosmos...not even remnants of annialations. Still, maybe an abundance of antimatter exists out there?

  9. Any ideas on how to create a time travel device?

    I embrace the notion that a higher level, way more advanced civilization, could accomplish, "Perceived Time Travel" on local scales. Like a Kardashev level 3, 4, 5+. Simply, it would resemble rewinding a VHS, or dvd, and replaying it forward. ***Warning*** I have non mainstream thoughts often, this response is one of them.


    Two things are essential to do this:


    1) The complete information of a local system. Every atom, down to the quantum level (or further), every neuron...all information as it relates to the system.


    2) The ability to arrange every atom...every neuron at will. In today's society IBM has managed to re-position individual atoms. We are far from doing all that is needed but a high level Kardashev may not be...somewhere in the universe.


    Having all the system information and ability to manipulate could allow a system to be re-arranged to an earlier time. A system could be our local solar system, our galaxy, our super cluster, etc. It would be like reversing a movie and playing it forward again...rearward time travel as perceived, locally, to those observers.


    Similar to Einstein's Equivalence Principle (gravity/ acceleration being indistinguishable from eachother), the reversed system would be indistinguishable from the system that was reversed to that point...again, at least locally to all internal observers of that system.


    I understand the idea is almost psuedo science. It does require believing in an advanced entity or civilization who is super advanced. The OP did not have limitations set in the question (like, "How could mankind create a time travel device, etc) so I respectfully request that my answer not be, "kicked to the curb" to hastily. I am just "thinking outside the box", lol...way outside:):):)

  10. No. I will have to search for an url. There is very little info. in cyberspace if I recall. I learned about it on some pop conspiracy show years ago. They could only get to the entrance from a distance. I'm nearly certain it was Montana or Wyoming.

  11. I would like to know what is under that mountain they dug into. Evidentally, it is huge with large rooms and miles of tunnels. I think it's in Wyoming or Montana. I bet that is where the super top secret stuff is...out of reach of satellite imagery.

  12. Gotcha. That makes perfect sense. I think I am going to take your advise. Perhaps morning coffee and incremental reading. Possibly print it out and highlight key points as I read. That should help in my retention level. I have short term memory issues at this point in life. Long term is fine but short term suffers.


    Edit: meant to mention that trying to read it on my galaxy s7 phone probably does not help with eye fatigue. The computer screen and/or full page printouts should be better. Maybe even a tablet for bedtime reading.


    Ty again!

  13. Wealth distribution in today's society is an issue as you brought attention to. Utilization is the biggest problem in my opinion. Most of the world's wealth remains idle...selfishly hoarded whole seeking further roi (return on investment. Sure, part of the reason is so their family generations will benefit and be, "set for life". Still, a part also exists that us simply greed and wanting more. Enough...sadly, is never enough.


    I understand philanthropy individuals do exist. I imagine not all actually sincere though. Tax and accounting strategies are motivators often. Lol, often large donations only go to, "Self controlled trusts" or other foundations giving the illusion of the money actually leaving their hands. The news headline reads the same in either event and they sleep well at night I suppose.


    Wealth really cannot benefit needful worldly humans or animals if it is not utilized in a manner that allows it to. Sad indeed. I often hoped that Satoshi would anonymously donate his 700k bitcoins to charities that need it. 700k x $8k usd =5.6 billion usd. Of course, there is always the issue of mis-appropriation of funds. Many charities keep upwards of 90% of funds and only 10% actually makes it to needy hands:( I will not list (tarnish) any charity names here, the statistics are out there.


    I wonder how much hidden wealth is out there across the globe? Priceless artwork, precious gem and coin collections, crypto currency, gold, land (land in regions of the world unlike others, say China and PRC improper land grants to high ranking state officials).


    Boggles my mind just contemplating it!

  14. I am not. Length contraction is an effect for forms of matter in motion.

    In the graphic, only the segment d is affected by lc, not the space on either end.

    This is true for the entire diagonal length of the mirror. The mirror gets thinner!

    If the mirror was a prism, with a vertical back face, then the prism would change front to back with the greatest effect at the bottom, resulting in a change of the forward moving face.


    Your diagram makes sense. If lc occurs in either x or y, surface defection angle remains constant. In addition, if lc occurs in both x and y (equal amounts), again surface defection angle remains unchanged. Angle appears to possibly change only when x and y are altered by differing values.


    Do I have this correct?

  15. Sorry Kardashev6, I usually mention that.


    What Robert Graves did was to consolidate all the ancient writings about the different Greek myths from all available sources prior to 1900 (these are listed a, b, c, d, etc) and then goes on to describe them in the context of modern archeological knowledge (post 1850's, listed as 1, 2, 3 etc). What is missing from the pdf is the list of the sources for the first section that appeared between a, b, c and 1, 2, 3 in the Penguin Classic books..


    Troy might be a great action movie but that wasn't what it was about.




    I wish I had more endurance...getting older has me off my, "A" game. I simply cannot read and retain. Not the fault of you or the author...is my own (medicines/ usually bring the early fatigue last few years).


    Is there anyway you can summarize (more than you have)? I have tried three times but admit, I am not capable, start to finish, reading that pdf. I know my limitations. I am interested in the content though if possible reduced downward. If you already summized as you see fit, I am going to try and bite at it again over several weekends.


    Ty for posting it. It is not a, "Kick to the curb" doc by any means...there is something very intriguing right away when you start off:)

  16. In today's society, I think money establishes hierarchy. Sadly so. I imagine ancient tribes (with no, or minuscule monetary means) established hierarchy differently...perhaps, strength, hunting/gathering ability, etc.


    I judge people by their actions so wealth status means nothing to me. Unfortunately this does not influence society around me or in the world (to any significant or measurable degree:(:(:(

  17. Almost any word that begins with the letters, "PH".


    Phantom, Phoenix, Photon, Phone, Pharmacy, Philadelphia, Phase, Photo, Phalanx, Physics, Pharoh, Physician, Photosynthesis, Photocopy, Phenomenon, Photography, Physique, Phosphate.


    Awesome words!

  18. oh I know what botnet is. But that would usually have a bunch of unique IP addresses from different suborned machines. This had a few thousand connections each from two specific addresses running back to two major global data-centers, and then a couple hundred individual IP that looked to me to be actually searching though stuff. As I write this right now, Google and bing are each doing a couple hundred connections on THEIR indexing waves. It's just that time of quarter-year again when indexes get updated and people sniff around trying to buy the site.


    If there ever was a super-load from a true botnet trying to DDOS...theoretically the host has throttling and protection mechanisms.

    Impressed...sounds like you know your stuff bud. Only thing I know about, or heard about, is the ddos acronym. I remember when it starting slowing down gaming servers way back when. Not sure how they prevent it now a days. Maybe like you said, by throttling down (assuming that means choking off some data pipe).
