because it acts at the same spot in the brain as drugs, alcohol, fetish, and this kind of stuff...if you feel a intense good feeling with it, no matter what, your mind is in risk to become addicted to it, so watch your ass

It is perfectly ethical to bring kids into the world in Europe, East Asia and the US, because those countries are reproducing at sustainable levels. I don't see why we have to suffer because of the retards in India and Africa? They are the ones that should be walled off and suffer the consequences of their stupidity, not us.

The key to understanding a communist society is that the monetary reward is not the key driving factor in one's life. It is hard to comprehend, especially for the Americans generations being taught wrong values, but there is indeed more to life than constant pursuit for profit and prosperity. One can be satisfied in life an get appreciation by creating things and contributing to the society, especially when it comes to science. It eventually does not play an essential role if, say, a janitor is paid approx. the same as a teacher. Tbh academicians, and scientists in general, were among the highest paid jobs in the USSR.
Nowadays, it's insta whores and gangsta rappers.

What happened?
human contact i guess, frustration,a lot of different emotions rushing through my brain.
I'd guess the key is being honest with yourself and learning to love yourself.
Yesterday i realized i was "suffering" from something for almost a decade i was calling bullshit on whenever i was hearing the word: anxiety. (Yes it sounds cringe). I searched a stupid video about anxiety symptoms and compared them to my usual self and my behavior.

tips:human contact(not necessary but helps sometimes), less coffee (I'd say coffee makes you very anxious if you drink a lot and don't put the coffeine to use :physical or mental.) exercises, sleep, water, etc.

Reflect upon yourself and figure what's stopping you from acting like yourself. Take these steps honestly and you'll put your mind at ease.
When you wake up pretend your life is a game and you want to grind towards your goal. Might sound cheesy but if you ever hit rock bottom it will help.
You can call psychiatry a legitimate discipline just as soon as they can conquer the very difficult task of being able to use their own clickbait article brain scan "evidence" to actually tell apart and diagnose their own artificially contrived disorders.
>inb4 brain scans would be too expensive to use for diagnosis
You can't even successfully perform the diagnosis task as a proof of concept. Seriously not asking for a lot here.

Financial interests favor expensive cutting edge projects and scientific interests favor expensive cutting edge projects.
even the onion can't compete with this
that picture's fake.
>>Why not just drop a nuclear powered actively cooled probe
NASA's running low on plutonium. You need a stirling engine to generate enough power for cooling, but NASA cancelled development of that. Because of all the moving parts you have, you generate noise which will interfere with your seismometry.
And even then you can't keep the whole probe cool, but that's fine because the only problem is electronics so only those need to be kept cool. Except now we almost have silicon carbide electronics that can withstand the temperatures. Potentially even within a year or two. Developing said electronics probably as much or less than obtaining the plutonium.

The emergence of a new behavior inside a complex structure is a quantum mechanical phenomenon.

it is the spontaneous coherent entanglement of quantum states which causes all the invidivual wave functions to collapse into a new wave which completly describes the new system and is independent of its constituent elements.

The group becomes the whole.

Where are the biochem jobs!???!

Not bioinformatics i'm struggling guys what sectors aren't saturated with a Masters Degree in general biochem?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
So, no one has managed to find a job without a PhD?
No, because by the time you have a PhD you are too expensive. 90% of the jobs in chem I see are the lowest possible level, at minimum wage.

Either you go for an AA or bachelors only or you're unemployed.
>Where are the biochem jobs!???!
Jobs are in chemical biology nowadays. Long story short, biotech shops and pharma (at least when they do their own R&D) don't like to disclose their targets, and would rather "disclose" (read: outsource to India and China) chemical synthesis. Chemical biology comes up in target validation, screening, hit validation/development, assay development, etc. List goes on. This is anecdotal, take it with a grain of salt, but every old-school synthetic medicinal chemistry I've spoken with (PhDs in organic synthesis) have said that if they were going into biotech/pharma now then they'd specialize in chemical biology.
not gonna make it sadly, desu
I don't know so many biochem people that stayed with just biochem jobs, but I met some recently that are moving to Poland. Apparently there's a gap there in some clinical studies places because not so many chemists are well educated on the bio side. I wouldn't go to Poland though, it's genuine shit there.
