>>10221374
Wrong. What we know is that the universe SEEMS TO BE non-deterministic (to a certain degree; a particle cannot move as far as it wants from a certain point; hence the stochastic, probabilistic nature of the location of matter at the sub-atomic level). From the perspective of an omnipotent creature, the momentum and speed of a particle may very well be exactly defined at all times.

quantum mechanics are deterministic and free will can’t exist, even if they weren’t it would never imply free will existed (they aren’t).

what are the long term implications of micro plastics for life on earth? will life incorporate micro plastic into its systems, or evolve better ways of getting it out of its system?

Stay off this board and git gud at chemistry. Try to add extra math subjects if you can, so as to better interface with physicist collegues. You don't need to know what they know, but speaking the language better than most chemists will help.

Even the legitimate 5 sigma brains here are twisted with venom and spite. If you let them get to you it'll just bring your own performance down.

>>10222287
Obviously but its not about them being near the road, its about how you go about convincing people.
The central premise is terrible, but if you say "just put them in a field somewhere, thats better" they'll say "but what about advantages of solar roadways - using all the land the government already owns and keeping snow off the road" or whatever BS.
This way you can point out that the idea is so dumb that even just putting the panels a few meters into the air makes the plan infinitely more feasible, way more efficient and retains all the benefits that they claim would apply to solar roads (without having to go through and debunk their relevance individually). Once they accept that, its easier to progress to the rest. And if they don't progress past that initial realization, at least a solar roof on the roads is less of a waste of money than solar roads.

God I feel old.
As for the link, if you want to delve into it, read some fourier analysis, mathematical physics, and partial differential equations.
And don't forget about the special functions (like Bessel functions for drum oscillations), those are non-trivial generalizations of the simpler one-dimensional case.
If you are into quantum mechanics, you could get by with not knowing about harmonic oscillations, although it is a standard part of the course. However, intuitive understanding of the classic HO is crucial for quantum field theory, if you plan to go there.
Fuck, I really am old now..

A letter he sent to a Jewish mathematics professor he was boycotting lol
>I am not concerned with making difficulties for you as a Jew, but only with protecting – above all – German students of the second semester from being taught differential and integral calculus by a teacher of a race quite foreign to them. I, like everyone else, do not doubt your ability to instruct suitable students of whatever origin in the purely abstract aspects of mathematics. But I know that many academic courses, especially the differential and integral calculus, have at the same time educative value, inducting the pupil not only to a conceptual world but also to a different frame of mind. But since the latter depends very substantially on the racial composition of the individual, it follows that a German student should not be allowed to be trained by a Jewish teacher.
Pretty obvious he just wanted Jews out of his country and was trying to find a reason to expel the professor from his university. Reminds me of this German /int/ poster that said he would vouch for Marxism if an actual German wrote it, not Karl Marx.
Pretty idiotic imho

1. point - unable to make predicitions
2. same point
3, cheap trick, as always they have to redefine everything, and simply using a line instead of a point isn't going to solve everything (I know the technical advantages), but they act like this is such a revelation, no fuck off
4. no, results are not the same as predictions, and ST has not had any kind of practical results (a result could be that ST helps to rule out a mode of thinking)
5. irrelevant - beauty does not = anything in hard science, and I'd argue to GR is more beautiful than anything in ST.
