Why are there so many xenophiles, attracted to fantasy races like elves, etc, even though they are found only in fiction?

The universe is a literal living organism. Planets with life are like cells. The rest of the categories are metaphysically unknown to us at this stage of our evolution.

I would love to nap more, but if I nap I can't sleep properly at night. I go on two short walks a day (morning and evening) and lift weights twice a week so I don't think it's a problem with my physical activity.

how are geese so fucking efficient? they literally are fat fucks, yet they’re strong enough to fly their fat asses, with the endurance to go hundreds of miles, all while shitting all over the place and going “honk honk” fucking constantly. and they eat a diet of fucking grass!!!

how do they do it? a non-lard-laden drone only has an hour or so of battery life and doesn’t need to extract its calories from GRASS. i can’t even eat enough salad to feel full.

what is the goose’s sekret?

Cool. Show me a vid of you "surfing" up into a tree. Since, like chickens, you are flightless, right.

Is half of all verbal communication some jury-rigged self projection?
>>
Do you mean in the sense that you need to assume that the other person will react to and integrate information in the same way you would, if you were in their place? That is important for communication, to be able to guess accurately how the target will interpret the information.

However, on a more simple level you can also communicate by simply observing cause and effect; ie "if I say this sort of thing, they act that way" without actually trying to understand how or why they react that way at all. A lot of people actually communicate this way. Like, they understand that if they compliment somebody they will like them more and be nicer to them and have a better mood, but they won't even think about WHY that is the case.
>>
>>10973503
The fact that everyone interprets information differently is mind boggling. I wonder how you can transcend that or work with that to use it to your own advantage

Isn’t there fundamental and universal truth? Wouldn’t that go beyond the near infinite extent of relativity to something communicated?

How in the world do you do this? Whats the answer here?

>>10973523
you want ln(x) = - x
This equivalent to f(x) = ln(x) + x = 0.
x(n+1) = x(n) - f'(x(n))/f(x(n))

To what extent do you expectations create your reality? They effect all the choices available to you in a given moment among other things.

How do you craft 100% effective expectations? As opposed to expectations failing to create that reality.

Before you say “no, there’s more than expectations that go into play” consider that should an expectation fail, it was crafted wrong, and the simplicity of the Brain in relation to choices and that everything is ultimately a choice.

This anon is right >>10971657 except it will just be like any other state university degree; it will also be more respected if you live on the northern states near the Canadian border and not elsewhere since people would prefer wetback ESL labour with a shitty degree from Mexico that did not transfer to the U.S. at all.

phycisist being brainlets doesn't justify your brainlet answer.
The fact that you can't follow basic logic is proof that you bunch of faggots need "rules" to make basic arithmetic
>>
>>10972831
>try in Excel or Google
So you're the brainlet. Mathematical notation must be unambiguous necessarily. For that reason, the answer is without a doubt 16. If you assume to divide by the whole expression, it is not unambiguous anymore.
>>
>>10973139
I mean it's definitely ambiguous, I don't know why you'd pretend that it's not. Usually though operations with equal priority (divide, multiply) are evaluated in a left associative manner so yea 16 is the more reasonable answer. But it's not like there's any axiom that says that's how it must necessarily be interpreted.
>>
>>10973164
Division symbol takes the left number and divides by the right number. (2+2) is not part of the right number, it's a new expression. You'd have to write it like 8/(2(2+2)), as others pointed out already. It really is unambiguous.
>>
>>10971883
God I hate compsci. It's because of your shitty need to be able to write a program that this debate exists at all. This problem never arises in actual math because we don't use the stupid fucking quotient symbol, we use fractions.

Is the fad over? Now that the research has come in and it has shown that it fucks with the inmune system of your lungs how do you even sell this thing? It was supposed to be the healthy tobacco, not the pneumonia inducing white vapor of death.
