  1. "We should try varying the frequency of the DC current." Right there you tell us you do not know what you are talking about! DC current does NOT have a "frequency".
  2. Since the original question was specifically about "Homo Sapiens", I don't see how that is at all relevant.
  3. You have written books on this? I hope they were better written that this! "From the looks of it, Scotland and France actually built the first actual legit structures." That's interesting. What does "from the looks of it" mean? What evidence of such structures in France and Scotland can you show? "Thus, I would postulate that people from here helped with the construction of the Pyramids at Giza. " Why? Pyramids are a very basic structure. Anybody who wanted, for whatever reason, to build a really big structure would think of that first. They are much simpler than, say, an
  4. What you seem to have discovered is that the "mean" of two numbers, or the mean of n equally spaced numbers, is equal to the "midrange"!
  5. Sorry but I have no idea what you are trying to say. You say "hypotenuse of 2^2" but I feel sure you mean the hyptenuse of a 2 by 2 right triangle" is \sqrt{2^2+ 2^2}= \sqrt{8}= 2\sqrt{2}. That makes your next comments, "Now let's do 3^2 and the resultant answer is 4.242706" and "Now let's do 4^2 and the resultant answer is 5.65694248" very difficult to understand! 3^2= 9 and 4^2= 16. You mean that the hypotenuse of a 3 by 3 right triangle is \sqrt{3^2+ 3^2}= \sqrt{18}= 4.242641, approximately, and \sqrt{4^2+ 4^2}= \sqrt{32}= 5.656854, approximately. [quote]However, let's loo
  6. First you will have to explain what YOU mean by "intuition". I consider it a collection of assumptions and preconceptions.
  7. What does it even mean to "solve" a theory?
  8. The problem is energy! In order to be useful as fuel, a chemical has to have energy contained in through the way the atoms are put together. Plastic, while made of complicated molecules, doesn't have much energy stored in it.
  9. Have you never heard of "conservation of energy"? The heat energy given off when the atoms recombine cannot be more than the energy required to separate them.
  10. Why would "full moon" and "new moon" be the two "visual states" of the moon? What happened to "waning moon" and "dark of the moon"?
  11. So you are aguing that only things for which you become famous are "meaningful"? Saving a persons life, which no one remembers a hundred years later, is not "meaningful"? What if the persons great great grand child creates a vaccine that cures a disease that was killing people around the world. IF no one remembers that 200 years later, it was not meaningful? That would seem to me to be a very limited definition of "meaningful".
