    All the science. No really, quantum physics, biology, astronomy, cosmology, geography, etc.... the more others teach, the more I wish to learn!

  1. This, my friend, is a rabbit hole problem. Even if you could convict and punish all of the people in place now in the sex trafficking syndicates worldwide (and you would not BELIEVE just how far the corruption goes, just ask a few infamously assasinated diplomats, heads of state and multiple dozens of investigators and journalists who tried and died), they would all be replaced within a matter of HOURS. To be honest, if people actually knew, the fabric of society would break down overnight and after the fires were put out and the casualties counted, guess who would still be in charge, no
  2. Actually very useful info..... Especially for students and young adults!
  3. Wikipedia? Seriously? I cannot believe I actually have to say this here, but ALL wikipedia is conjecture BECAUSE ANYONE can edit the articles contained therein WITHOUT ANY peer-review by research-driven, scholarly or academic people or groups. Therefore it has ZERO weight as proof. This is what is known as an unverifiable citation, which is one of the FIRST THINGS you learn in BASIC English Composition classes REQUIRED for one to even BEGIN to conduct proper research. Did you fail that class or did you simply not attend or? *Rhetorical Question, I Don't Care* If you cannot be bo
  4. Sorry about that, I was addressing the OP. ....which I shall not do again until he has proof, or needs another example of why his conclusion shopping has zero place in modern scientific speculation, discussion or application. 😄 ~Rasti
  5. Sounds to me as though one Gilbert K. Chesterton was a very wise man...... 😉
  6. Sadly, as a peon of the ruling elite, all we can do is speculate upon which superpower will kill us all, and have nothing realistic or feasible to do about it. I agree that there is little hope of humanity ever overcoming it's propensity for war and strife, but (and I cannot believe I am going to say this as a nihilist and existentialist) I still hold out hope that we MAY one day "See the Light." It is unknowable even with the doomsday clock (https://thebulletin.org/doomsday-clock/) and all the people who pour over the data which points toward a nuclear holocaust, when or if that day will come
  7. TOTALLY AGREE. As someone who has taken a few philosophy classes (and passed), and as an admittedly existentialist individual, I can confirm thru just my own viewpoint that everything is meaningless. However, that is not enough; Even those who are rich will pass into oblivion regardless of their contributions to humanity or the multiverse at large. Given a long enough timeline (in our 'verse, that would be infinity), and a large enough playing field of competing ideas and people (Again, see: Multiverse), most people and their ideas take up less than a millionth of a percent of the history (bot
  8. Write4u..... YouTube videos, without any academic citation, are just conjecture. /discussion
  9. 1. With motion of any sort, there is friction. 2. If by 'reactionless', you mean that there is no NUCLEAR reaction, then I'll give you that. But a true reactionless drive would have no 2 parts which would 'react' to each other. Thus, no moving parts, no transference of energetic particles, no magnetism, no graviton technology, and a host of other examples. 3. There is no such thing as perpetual motion. That's like saying you can see past infinity. No, you Can't. 4. MY EYES ARE BLEEDING FROM READING YOUR WALLS OF TEXT WHICH HAVE ***ZERO*** ACADEMIC CITATIONS. NO PROOF!!! JUST STO
  10. Ugh..... another video game video. 😕 Look dood, want me to discuss things with you? COOL, but I have some requirements: ☼ Any links posted must be from an academic or peer-reviewed journal. ☼ Stay on topic. Sloppy segues into unrelated or ridiculous subjects will be ignored. ☼ If you back your theories up with hard sciences, I will engage your topic FULLY. That will be all.....
  11. To time travel requires both a distortion of time, AND the transport of your matter - and all matter attached/required - to the destination. You would not want to arrive naked would you?
  12. This is an example of a spacetime rift. Humans only assume they understand the nature of spacetime. Take again the example of the event horizon; would the humans who stood on that event horizon disappear after going back to earth to find all they had loved and cherished had aged-out and become extinct? Or would they arrive there, dust off their memories and say their goodbyes, then move on? I believe it would be the latter. Unless some very important timeline event was altered, the mass, energy and matter of the objects going forward or backward in time would remain unaltered for the mos
  13. Well, I should first point out that time travel IS possible, provided certain modifiers have been met, like having access to quantum computing, very high levels of energy, and being close to a singularity helps. Take for instance the event horizon of a supermassive black hole; approach closely enough in an orbital trajectory and your time will pass slower than all the rest of the universe outside the reach of the singularity's event horizon (barring ACTUAL time travelers and the attendant folds in time which are created by their activities across the space-time continuum). Thus it follows that
  14. Don't go away for too long! Some few of us actually really enjoy your content! PS - If I have to take the sword from the stone, do you have any tips?
