You really took some advice from /sci/ seriously, and followed it without.. well, don't know, maybe thinking for yourself, ask for opinions at other places? You did just what some unknown faggot on /sci/ told you? Nigga is you serious?
If you do your own thing with it for sure. Perhaps you can put all of the shit you did for years to use to do the teaching for you.
well, you always can buy land in the middle of forest and build a house without electricity or running water
You should have learned to code along the way. Sorry, bro, better luck next iteration.

Assured full tuition at T20 or write a LOI that says I'll throw it away for a T10 spot (good chance at 1/2 tuition scholarship, but not 100%).
Cost would be:
T20: 80k for COL and misc expenses over 4 years
T10 (w/o any scholarship): ~ 80k for COL + 120k for tuition over 4 years (they have a max amt you can take in loans per year)

Otherwise, cry and seethe some more.

Begging the question fallacy. Your premise that something existed "before" is assumed in the conclusion that it's possible to exist without time/space.
>Not the claim of the standard model of cosmology, pseud.
LOL. Mince words all you want. The "singularity" is the demarcation of spacetime existing/not existing. You can obfuscate about the BB or great expansion happening "after" that or whatever you want, it changes nothing.
Atheism is a belief. Go be ignorant somewhere else
>There is a difference between concluding there is a prime mover and attributing any human characteristics or motives whatsoever to that prime mover.
Are you actually making this strawman or are you just saying random things? At any rate, you are confused and have things exactly backwards. God cannot have human characteristics, humans can have "God-like" characteristics to an infinitely smaller degree I guess.
>There is absolutely no reason the initial causer would have to be a being in any sense of the word.
You must be an ESL because it verbatim matches the first definition of the word.

A good friend is a PhD and researches "multiple spin-2 fields".
Does anyone have a clue of how... difficult it is to understand what it's even about? The more he explains it, the more I realize how much I need to know to have an inkling of what it's about.

>pic related: me when hearing about spinors, degrees of freedom, multimetric theory, quantum fields, and ghosts in different formulations
That's by design. It's harder to tell if someone is making up their results if the jargon is so dense and theoretical that it's impossible for outsiders to enter the field and critique it.
Your friend is a pseud. He should know how to explain it without the jargon, but he can't. Though in my experience, explaining research without the jargon still leaves brainlets like you lost.

For the record it's not my explanations that fail either. I've had literal drunk people at bars (while I had only half a drink) start reinventing the very natural jargon of my field after explaining my research to them. Meanwhile I've had completely sober idiots like you who just internally sob
I know about degrees of freedom, we studied that in school, in chemical bonding.
It would be the same in any field. You could be talking to a farmer and he would tell you about plant anatomy and agricultural chemicals by their brand name, and you could not follow along
Its about gravitons

My brother in christ, get your PE if you want to design. IDK how much you're making right now but if you got 11 years controls experience and your LOICENSE i know at least 3-4 separate design firms that would pay you $150k+, fully remote, to do I&C design.

As another alternative, I am in Grid Operation Planning. It's essentially about running studies to determine when it's most suitable to enact different transmission projects that reconfigure the nature of the electric grid, identifying all the different system constrains and such. It's pretty interesting, although nothing I do materializes short term, it's thoughtful yet relaxed.

Well, I'm watching precalculus and I'm pretty sure about the material so far, it's mostly stuff I know but need to refresh after 2 years of neeting.
Going back to even more basic stuff would be pointless. I just think if OP has trouble with precalculus Leonard's precalculus vids should clear any of his doubts.
Right, but without a strong grounding in algebra - which most precalculus books on the preface emphasise - he's going to struggle. If he wants a quick rundown then Precalc in a nutshell by Simmons would be fine. Also, MIT has videos related to his calc book. But if he went to Khan Academy, and did the pre-calc test, he would see his weak points.
I guess I'm underestimating how much OP doesn't know then
>wtf is muh precalculus
another word for algebra + trigonometry and this and that. No other country actually uses a course for that, though, in Germany we've got the "Vorkurs" which is about refreshing mathematics taught in school starting from the basics of arithmetics up to calc 1. It lasts 6-8 weeks and is optional though. You start right off with calculus, linear algebra, numerics.. Without precalculus shit
Many people have an issue with infinitesimals. How can those be understood? Half a millennium ago, Jesuits had the notion of infinitesimals excommunicated. As they did not believe to corresponded to reality. These days, no one is sure if they correspond that way. But some suspect that they might. David Tong: “reality is non-discretizable”.

Retard, object permanence is purely within the perception. Can you prove the universe existed before yesterday?
many such posts in this thread were made in the past.
Special relativity implies eternalism.

You are going to have to define the present moment, in terms of more than just what it is not.
Past, present, and future are fractal. Therefore, all three exist for one another. More precisely, all three exist at the same time, all at once.

serious question I'm not fucking around I think I got something with fentanyl in it and took too much

my breathing is very shallow but my heart rate is high

will I die if I go to sleep? I don't feel the need to inhale at the valley of an exhale. it's this weird sense that I can choose to die at any time right now by just not drawing another breath, because yeah, the reflex is gone.

I have a little bag of crystal meth. when should I start panicking and take some to reverse the respiratory depression? or is it all in my head? no it can't be, and no I'm not going to the hospital again I just got back from the fucking hospital

I also have olanzapine which is an antispychotic and feels like a benzo but I don’t know what’s real or not

I need to talk to someone with personal experience
The "something" that's laced with fent has a lot to do with your initial reaction. Depending on the initial drug you bought, it could compound the effects of the fentanyl, etc etc. TLDR go to a pharmacy and ask for Narcan
Keep us updated.
I took some of the meth.
my plan is to wait 6 hours then take 40mg olanzapine.
if things still feel very wrong I'll go to my dad's place, not my mom's. and also not the hospital.

i feel very wrong about the idea of going outside.
anyway yeah, """research chemicals""" are a trap for socially isolated 4chan/reddit kids.

Gotta question for you guys. What, in your opinion, is the advantage of discussing math here instead of on some other website? Is it just that /sci/ is the least retarded place you know of?

Am I correct in thinking that you are asking about the following sequence:
[math]\forall \{x;y;a\} \in \mathbb{R}_{+}[/math]


[math]\forall \{x_{1}, x_{2}; y_{1}, y_{2}; a_{1}, a_{2} \} \in \mathbb{R}_{+} [/math]
[math] {\begin{bmatrix} x_{1} & x_{1} \end{bmatrix}} ^{{\begin{bmatrix} a_{1} & a_{1} \end{bmatrix}}} + {\begin{bmatrix} x_{2} & x_{2} \end{bmatrix}} ^{{\begin{bmatrix} a_{1} & a_{1} \end{bmatrix}}} = {\begin{bmatrix} y_{1} & y_{1} \end{bmatrix}} [/math]
[math] {\begin{bmatrix} x_{1} & x_{1} \end{bmatrix}} ^{{\begin{bmatrix} a_{2} & a_{2} \end{bmatrix}}} + {\begin{bmatrix} x_{2} & x_{2} \end{bmatrix}} ^{{\begin{bmatrix} a_{2} & a_{2} \end{bmatrix}}} = {\begin{bmatrix} y_{2} & y_{2} \end{bmatrix}} [/math]


[math] \forall \{x_{1}, x_{2}, x_{3}; y_{1}, y_{2}, y_{3}; a_{1}, a_{2}, a_{3} \} \in \mathbb{R}_{+} [/math]

If so there is no general solution, per Galois groups.

No solution by radicals, you mean.

Uhm, please share if you rember! n < 6 helps in my context
I tried asking on a math Discord and they said this problem is "cursed". Pic is the simple case [math]n=2[/math]. I assume solutions in higher dimensions are the surface intersection of lp hyperspheres.
>can't this fail for large exponents
This is an interesting point. It makes sense, large exponents are problematic as surfaces become cube-like when [math]a_i \to \infty[/math].
This is very interesting, thank you. I will have to learn more about Galois groups and radicals to make sense of the answers.
>but I think you can actually
Well you are wrong.
You are being misinformed by the ignorant anon, don't listen to him. You simply cannot prove that {(z,f(z)) | z in x} is a set. There are no axioms that let you prove this. You cannot apply replacement, because the axiom of replacement is stated without the symbol f. You don't have the axiom of replacement with f in it.
