There were a bunch of studies going back to the early 2000s that ostensibly established sexual dimorphism in transsexual brains, albeit with uselessly low sample size. Recently, a bunch of transphobes have taken these exact same studies and run them through some semantic horseshit to argue that rather than proving sexual dimorphism they actually prove erotic target location error or whatever other fashionable nonsense. No new research is added, so it's still N=20 horseshit, just with an extra layer of horseshit on top of it. But people swallow it because trannies are the last acceptable niggers.

If the brain runs on electrical signals and most of our energy consumption goes to the brain -- wouldn't it make sense to conduct an alternating current into our head. This does two things:
1. Increases processing speed
2. Requires less kcals per day. Perhaps at most a basic metabolic rate of 1200.
>>
DC is better for that. AC is only for long distance.
>>
>>11307536
DC would be for evoking thoughts by shocking certain neurons. An alternating current would allow neurons to more readily pull energy from the environment without resorting to glucose chemical reactions.

Regrowing actual neurons, dendritic connections, or even just receptor sites isn't really possible at this time.
I also believe that you would be depersonalized if you were to get a new set of the above so it's a complex issue. And I mean, oxidative stress in the brain is such a stupidly complicated issue I doubt we are going to have a silver bullet solution. The best bet might be targeted antioxidants which cross the BB barrier and reduce damage or stemcell/neuroplasticity drug therapy.

I am training myself to become ambidextrous. Right now I am using my computer mouse on my left hand (it is a symmetric mouse so you can hold it with your left hand), and it is driving me nuts but I am keeping at it. I am playing thought intensive games on my computer (chess, minesweeper) with my left hand.
I also spin my pen every now and then to train those weak pathetic muscles.
I eventually want to write and draw with my left hand almost as good as my right hand.
Can this somehow improve my cognitive abilities, or do the opposite?
>>
>>11307339
hahaha. i had this same fascination back in 9th grade and now I write with both hands. I use my left hand on the left side of my notebook and right hand on the right side. I personally have found that it made me a little less intelligent, but that could have been due to the ocassional joint I smoked when I was younger. There have been studies showing that naturally born ambidextrous people had lower iq's than their one handed counterparts.
>>
>>11307369
but I wonder if they get a complementary EQ boost, like right handedness is tied to left brain, ,which is logical, IQ heavy. I know you said 'one handed' but I wonder how many lefties they actually got

>consistent histories actually makes sense, as opposed to MW

Yeah reality is just a bunch of statements which are consistent with each other according to the rules of classical logic. Wait who chooses the set of statements again? How is this different from copenhagen? (protip: it isn't, and even its proponents admit this)

CH bridges copenhagen and MW in a way that makes sense, but it actually has rules unlike the other two.

>CH bridges copenhagen and MW in a way that makes sense, but it actually has rules unlike the other two.
I agree with this. It is still not a very satisfying interpretation because it is still very epistemological. If someone does not like Copenhagen because it elevates the idea of measurement to a fundamental part of the interpretation, then they will not like consistent histories either
>>
>>11307405
okay, but i don’t care if it makes people’s fee-fees better. CH is the best way to understand physics, especially since we are trying to understand the early universe before “observers” existed. if philosophers dislike that then they can fuck off while cosmologists do real work

And it's clear that you didn't even bother to look into some of the points in that image. The very first one, the South celestial pole, is only physically possible if the Earth's surface is curved. There can't be a flat surface (where the observers stay on one side of said surface) and two points in the night sky where the stars appear to revolve around.
>>
>>11306884
Holy shit, you're so behind on your flat earth theory. You're repeating the most common arguments against flat earth, which have, unsurprisingly, been addressed. All arguments against flat earth and for round earth fail.

So how does the south celestial pole work on a flat earth? You travel south far enough and you stop being able to see certain stars, and start seeing others, that also appear to rotate around a central point. This is easy to explain with a spherical Earth; how would you explain it if the earth is flat.

Then there is the ISS, which even with an amateur telescope you can clearly tell is an artificial object, moving quickly across the sky. I have seen it personally. My father, who got me into stargazing, remembers it not being there, and beong excited to see it go up. How do you explain that?
>>
>>11306866
You mean it doesn't work with the globe model of the moon. Why would it?
>>
>>11307093
Explain exactly what the moon is in the flat model, how it functions, and how you can use your model to predict its exact position in the sky and phase for any given location at any given time or date for the next century. Only then would it rival the globe model in usefulness and accuracy to real world observations (in this specific circumstance)

that alone is heaven, but it also has crazy industrial application, we can manufacture anything at the molecular level with this, and remember thes emachines self replicate.

Is any sequence of continous functions that is pointly covergent to some continous function on closed compartment and it isn't uniformly convergent?//I hope i didn't make much language mistakes.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>11306566
So if f is point wise convergent, then for every epsilon we get N(x) s.t. at x, that f(x)-f_{N(x)}(x) < epsilon where epsilon is given. Choose the largest such N(x) and let that be N, and since g(x) = f(x)-f_{N}(x) is continuous, we have that there is delta s.t. for d(x,y)<delta that g(x)-g(y) < 2epsilon. Since this holds for all x, and such a construction can be made for all epsilon, it holds that f_{n}(x) is uniformly convergent.
>>
>>11307207
That being said the final continuity argument only holds because of the closed set its defined on, and we can choose a smaller delta to replace epsilon/2 with epsilon, but any mathematician would be able to make the connection
>>
>>11307207
The last part about g(x ) and its continuity is crucial because it tells us that for M > N that g(x) will be less than epsilon for all x
>>
>>11306566
Yes.
Let [0,2] be your closed interval.
Let f_n(x) = nx for x in [0,1/n]
2-nx for x in [1/n,2/n]
0 for x in [2/n,2].

The sequence converges pointwise to the constant 0 but it is not uniformly convergent to 0 because for each n there exists an x such that f_n(x)=1.

This >>11307334 is an example.
This >>11307207 is embarrassing.

are we living in a false vacuum? will it decay? will a "bubble" that expands radially at light speed destroy earth sooner or later?

my opinion is yes. if the cosmological constant is positive, it implies a lower energy vacuum state exists, and gravitational tunneling nucleation of true vacuum must occur based on Coleman-De Luccia. so we are doomed bros.
