How come the East Asian estrogen bean that we're suspiciously not allowed to mention by name sometimes wordfilters to based and sometimes to onions?
Also why is it so controversial and censored to begin with anyway? Is it because of the bean's enormous estrogen content?

>The cat is dead and alive at the same time

Literally all you have is philosophical trash there is literally no way to prove that the cat is magically dead and alive at the same time or that you simply do not know what happened.

Yes, Schrodinger came up with it specifically to illustrate what he saw as a problem with the Copenhagen interpretation. Since, while the box is closed, the aliveness of the cat is directly correlated to whether the radioactive source has decayed, and after a certain amount of time we cannot be sure whether the source has decayed, then there must be a point after which we are uncertain about the aliveness of the cat. The cat is not simultaneously both alive and dead, but the "alive" and "dead" outcomes are both possible. They exist in superposition. We cannot know if the cat is still alive until we actually open the box. When we open the box, we measure the quantum state of the system, and it collapses into one of the possible states. The cat is either alive or dead, not both.

NB: As a *thought* experiment, all components are assumed to be perfect: any radioactive decay is detected with 100% of the time, the detector never triggers if there is no decay, the walls of the box are completely opaque, rigid, and soundproof, etc.
Then how do we have modern technologies and systems?
modern physics is like reading the talmud.

Having the same people on a grant selection committee also be a reviewer for the resulting paper would be one hell of a coincidence. Sure, it's possible the paper reviewers might be affiliated in some way with the organization that funds the research, but it's unlikely they would feel a need to push the paper through to publication if it's not deserving of it. Plus the review process is supposed to be anonymous, so even if that were the case, any direct reference to the funding agency or grant number would likely be redacted from the draft sent to the reviewers. There are typically such a large number of grants given out it would be near impossible for a reviewer to recognize a proposal they approved. Again, unless we're talking about some super tiny, niche sub field of the social sciences where there are maybe six people total in the world working on it.

In that situation gravity would just be antigravity, so you just use objects to attract each other and shit.

Scientific publications are every bit as slanted and biased as conventional journalism is

>Prosocial motives underlie scientific censorship by scientists: A perspective and research agenda
>Scientific censorship is rarely studied empirically. We explore the social, psychological, and institutional causes and consequences of scientific censorship (defined as actions aimed at obstructing particular scientific ideas from reaching an audience for reasons other than low scientific quality). Popular narratives suggest that scientific censorship is driven by authoritarian officials with dark motives, such as dogmatism and intolerance. Our analysis suggests that scientific censorship is often driven by scientists, who are primarily motivated by self-protection, benevolence toward peer scholars, and prosocial concerns for the well-being of human social groups. This perspective helps explain both recent findings on scientific censorship and recent changes to scientific institutions, such as the use of harm-based criteria to evaluate research. We discuss unknowns surrounding the consequences of censorship and provide recommendations for improving transparency and accountability in scientific decision-making to enable the exploration of these unknowns. The benefits of censorship may sometimes outweigh costs. However, until costs and benefits are examined empirically, scholars on opposing sides of ongoing debates are left to quarrel based on competing values, assumptions, and intuitions.

Wow, would political activists posing as scientists for clout really just lie in order to try and selfishly shill their unwanted political agenda on everyone?
the really funny part is they go through to whole charade of getting data just in order to go to the further trouble of selectively excluding the data they don't like in order to justify getting the results that they wanted. they could have just skipped a a couple steps and gone directly to the results

I have only done the first step and I'm not sure if it is correct

Decision Variables:
x1: Amount allocated to the First Home Mortgage Loans.
x2: Amount allocated to Second Home Mortgage Loans.
x3: Amount allocated to Personal Consumer Loans.
x4: Amount allocated to Small Business Loans.

Objective Function: - Maximization of the total profit, therefore -
max(Z = 0.05x1 + 0.08x2 + 0.12x3 + 0.10x4 + 0.14x5)

Total Budget Constraint: x1 + x2 + x3 + x4 + x5 <= 1000000000
Housing Loans Constraint: x1 >= 0.45 x (x1 + x2)
Business Investment Loans Constraint: 0.10 * 1000000000 <= x5 <= 0.25 * 1000000000

People who claim to like animals more than they like humans are people who think humans are lower than animals, they are horrible misanthropes and they want you do die.
what's the point of the context thing if it's just going to be used like this?
That shouldn't be hard to test. Just cut a human into smaller pieces and see if turkeys eat them.
It's not that humans are lower than other animals. Some are great, but some are users who only seem concerned with deceiving and benefitting themselves. Dogs and cats just seem happy to be alive most of the time.
>I know what animals are thinking
pure projection
you are mentally ill if you think you can read animal's minds, their mental landscape is far too different from ours, but you just presume you can anyway because it has a face. let me guess, dolphins are always happy, right?

It just proves they don't believe anything they say.
Removing mass from high elevations and bringing that mass to low elevations also changes the Earth's rotational velocity, making days shorter
thats mostly true, but the effect changes with latitude
