>The mutation IS the random process
No, it isn't, you drooling retard, the mutations are non-random authorly mutations, due to RNA networks, otherwise evolution wouldn't work. It is flat out impossible for something so sophisticated to form randomly. You believe a stupid unintelligent model of evolution, with no basis in evidence, and no plausibility, as a way of denying intelligence in nature. That is the type of behavior that can't be abided in science.

Wrong poster, did you mean to reply to >>12753878?
>>12757375
Multiple random-process mutations do not require the age of the universe to happen; multiple random mutations can occur within an organism's lifetime (e.g. DNA replication errors, DNA to RNA transcription errors, external radiation altering individual nucleotides).
>>12758325
>non-random authorly mutations
Do you mean "non-random authority mutations"? Regardless, I can't find anything on it. Also,
>due to RNA networks
What RNA networks do you mean? Please elaborate (and elaborate on the "authorly mutations" please, that would be much appreciated).

Guys, can you help?

I have terrible anxiety, so my psychiatrist gave me rivotril. I take 0.2 mg on the morning and 0.3 mg before going to sleep.

And now my dick is almost completely dead. I tried to masturbate after showering, and it got up, but I can't cum. I see a coffee picture on any board, and it does not get up, when before this I got diamonds just with the picture of a bikini.

It's not like I'm sexually active (I barely even masturbate) but it feels so fucking weird and disturbing. What the fuck should I do?

The constructal theory of global optimization under local constraints explains in a simple manner the shapes that arise in nature.

I will use my own words to explain my speculation.

droom = Main highway of evolution.
joon = Exit out of the main highway of evolution, for a involutionary direction.
aodeen= Droom and joons altoghether, shape and direction of life in time.
gooje = First form of life perfectly unique.
kool = Combination of goojes.
lasco = Population of same gooje.
greu = Massive gooje potential.

An Aodeen according to "constructal theory" will take a shape and form just like any other creative meaning of the nature: A lightning, a Delta's river, blood vessels, the perfect shape of an egg, the cracks of a land without water, a marathon, statistics etc.

Example: A Lightning will start from a certain point in the sky. One main ramification will follow its way further than all the other ramifications. Sometimes this ramification will strike on land.

The very same way Aodeen started from a certain point in time. Droom
followed its way up to humanity leaving behind Joons and creating new Joons.
Goojes took the direction of Droom and Joons. What we find in Droom today is at most all the Goojes when life was created . It's probable to find the same Gooje in different Joons of the past.

Is there a time to admit it's just too late? An age where no matter what kind of brave face you put on, nature says KYS? Studies say the brain declines after 25, telomeres start to degenerate, collagen calcifies, testosterone start to drop, sperm and egg count start to decline etc.

I'm 34 now and get weird looks when I'm applying for entry level jobs. Most people are at the peak of their careers, I don't even have one. Every time I consider one seriously, they always revolve back to uni and getting a degree. I'm a brainlet who dropped out over a decade. When I was 18 I though I had all the time in the world. But at my age I constantly worry about compound interests, 401k, credit score etc. So uni is a luxury I can't afford. Every night I go to bed hoping my mum doesn't die in her sleep otherwise I'll be evicted. It's all so tiresome.

In 60 years the percentage of CO[math]_2[/math] in the atmosphere has gone from 0.0310% to 0.0425%
The idea that this has no consequences is delusional, like thinking you can change the composition of a chemical reaction and the outcomes won't change.
We need to move anything of value away from sea level cities where the morons will gradually drown and put it at altitudes of at least 70 feet where it won't be destroyed by 2100.

What you're forgetting

Is

The fact

That

You live on a lava filled rock flying through space with a wobble on it, whipping around a fucking giant fire ball that spits radiation at you and also our rock gets smacked with other rocks sometimes that fuck is up

And also, volcanos flip out and try and fuck you up

And the Sahara was covered in grass only 10,000 years ago which is like 1 second ago in universe life time.

But

You're saying that I should care if we fuck the place up for a couple hundred years.

You're also telling me that it's not the 1.x billion chinese

>The idea that you know the consequences is just as delusional though
You have a simple effect, warming in response to CO2, it can be approximated as linear for small CO2 perturbations, and we know the coefficient, because we did the experiment-- 1 degree of warming per difference ( CO2 now ) - (CO2 1900). That tells you the size of the effect up to a factor of 2 or 3, and that's enough to be concerned and do something.

Just stop burning fossil fuels!! Tokamaks will never work, and the other things are just stupid. We can already do limitless fusion power via PACER, we could do it in the 1970s, the only obstacle is nuclear proliferation fears.

actually it has everything to do with the limit of a sequence

"for every ε>0 there exists N such that n>N implies |a_n - L| < ε"

is the same as

"for every set in the form (L-ε,L+ε) there exists a set in the form (N,∞) such that n ∈ (N,∞), implies a_n ∈ (L-ε,L+ε)"

which is the same as

"for every open set V containing L there exists an open set U containing ∞ such that n ∈ U, n ≠ ∞, implies a_n ∈ V"

Nothing is confusing. We knew from the get go that you have no clue about the concepts of
topology or limits, and this keep getting confirmed.

Compared to almost the last decade, you don’t see a lot of people falling in love with math, physics or engineering these days. Back then, they were only loud and proud about it because of seeing it in TV sitcoms and movies that barely scratched the surface about what those subjects were about.

I’m not sure if it’s because of the pandemic or the recent riots over the past year, but I think the “I LOVE SCIENCE” crowd that originated from the Reddit circles is going to be long gone soon. I can feel it.
