Don't you think they prolly assign you sooner or later individual shots?

In the beginning it was random but they want "individualized" vaccines.

Um, occult science is a thing.

Mad science?

“Sweet, man-made horrors beyond my comprehension”
Because it's not science. Even if you made a demon appear in front of everyone, it wouldn't be reproducible so you will be forgotten
That’s not the occult. Occult just means hidden. Esoteric. Arcane. Eldritch. Alien. They all have relatively the same root meaning.
that's not science either

Some are discovered, some are invented.

What if we stop using numbers to count?
"A number is a mathematical object used to count, measure, and label." - Wikipedia on 'Numbers'.
I was thinking, computers got powerful, we have switched from fingers to abacus to calculators to computers... (At least, according to history taught in schools). Would counting be even more advanced in the future? (Yes? No? I don't know!)
Any object you can count with has bijection with natural numbers.

The psychotechnology numeracy is getting embedded into the human thinking grammar even before speaking consciously clear sentences. It's so deep, you can't just undo that.

And for a good reason. Numeracy and literacy were the 2 most powerful upgrades we had in our human history, right after speech. It changes your thinking fundamentally. Abstraction, metaphors, deliberate high order planned thinking etc.

Just imagine what you would be if you would be actually not able to think mathematically/abstractly or in written words.

You can always create more and different routines/patterns, surely even to a point, where they are superior in some specific environment, but undo the basic without damaging the brain is impossible.
It will always just a different operative mode, but switching back is happening immediately, if you don't focus on pushing it away.

But that's actually what's all about anyway? More tools and such.
Understandable. Thank you for the reply. That is one very concise explanation of how human decided to count and read. Awesome!
Yes, you can count without numbers. There is a popular book about this here
This is the related section on Wikipedia that discusses how Newtons laws were reformulated without the use of any numbers
That's interesting!
Thank you so much bro or sis, this gave me new book to find and read and gave me a new lead on what knowledge to discover next.
Thank you again!

Black Holes invert space and time below the event horizon.

Timelike separation becomes spacelike.
Spacelike separation becomes timelike.

The theory suggest that this is not just an inversion of terms but a geometric inversion in the truest sense.

The theory proposes that the Schwarzschild is the exact solution and mathematical alterations to 'fix' the interior are wrong.

The theory proposes that these are elementary conclusions given that one follows every concept of the Schwarzchild to their logical ends.

I walk around every day thinking 'this is probably how 'dark matter' works. This is how the Big bang happened. This is why galaxies stick together in clusters.'
hi bot
Maybe? Probably going to be a million years before we can test any of these theories anyway at this rate

If the theory is correct then you can map 'Dark Matter' by the size of galactic black holes and how they are interacting with the other galactic black holes in clusters.

The theory also provides an explanation for black hole spin alignment. Of course the spins align. They're connected by Einstein-Rosen bridges.

Pragmatically it is more advantageous to entertain the existence of immaterial soul.
Think about it, if people entertain this idea then shit ton of red tapes can be dropped overnight.
Experimentation on clones? They are soul-less puppets.
Experimentation on AIs? They are soul-less machines.
The insistence that humans are nothing more than deterministic biological complex is ironically what brings about endless "ethics" that hamper progress because people now deem it necessary to delegate rights to other fellow complex "bots".

Let's say you pick the domain with the least number of species. Then the Kingdom with the least number of species, then the same with Phylum, Class, Order, etc, etc.

you should care, because it might be the case that the animal I would say is actually a particularly distant member of a fuck-huge family and has just been misclassified this entire time
The life drop is made up of the three domains; archea, bacteria, eukarya

I have to get good grades for another 15 months so I can have the requirements to enter engineering school. I will have to go through a written exam and an interview to assess my level of motivation. I will try to quit smoking and I will try and find a hobby. If I am succesfulI, I will have 3 years in engineering school until I graduate. After that I will get a job If I haven't done it already through a co-op program (underpaid). I will work 35h a week without overtime (it will be over 40 hours and I will have to be available on weekends). I will be 25 or 26. I studied too much technical bullshit, and will lack in basic life skills. I still haven't accomplished anything meaningful. I have a flabby body and an average haircut, my overall presence will inspire pity. I chose a major that was put in place by the national education committee in association with the major companies and associations of the industry in order to meet the quotas. I will be approaching my 30s. I am just like everyone else. The few friends I know will start to get married and have kids. No more nights out having "fun" (fun = trying to feel like you're still 16). On the rare occasion we meet, our neutral discussions will be about bills and jobs and what other people do. It's been so long, you can't talk to the people you use to know the same way but it is what it is.
elementary and high school is daycare where you get to learn a few tidbits and factoids that you might be able to use in small discussion. University isn't much better, but it is better, but not by much. All types of school are shit and I think anyone with slightly below or above intelligence can teach themselves in less time for less money
Don't you worry man. Adolescence will pass. It's by design. Just don't listen to much to your 'heart' and go on about most stuff in a rational manner. Start lifting weights, start meditate daily and keep going. You got this.
You chose this path
School should be run like a prison. It should be a screening process. Any child that harms animals or repeatedly harms others should be executed.

Teachers know this shit. Any kid that displays violence towards animals will go on to live a terrible life.

so if the interval I = (0, 1) exists then is 0.99999...[pi] the supremum of I?
assume P = pi*10^(-k) = 0.00...[pi] > 0, let k be large
therefore we know that this means that 0.99999...[pi] is actually within the interval
is 0.9...[pi] > 0.9...[e]?
both are, as we assume, in I
however as k->inf we see that P-E -> 0
Therefore the assumption is wrong and P+1 is the infimum and indeed P+1 = 1
this makes sense because x*0 = 0
Therefore 0.0...[x] = 0 for all x in R
I want you to see something though
Suppose there is a very large number 12345...
123...*10^(-k) := ab
if 123... has the same length as k then 123..._k*10^(-k) = 0.1234...
therefore as a approaches infinity and b approaches 0, we have inf*0 = 0.1234... = c
therefore for all c \in I we know that b*c = 0.
thus there exist some large number c such that for all i \in I that i = 0*c_i
Therefore 200... > 100... because .2 > .1
there 999... is the biggest number since it times zero is also the supremum of I
However, if for all x in R x*0 = 0
and as k decreases 0*c_i decreases. Therefore infimum of infinity is any finite number. Notice the relationship between this and x*0 = 0.

Mathematics is a religion, and God is real, therefore math is real
>are real numbers real?
Yes. They are prior to the physical though. They are metaphysical. Things like infinity and continuousness don't exist in the physical world. They can be APPLIED to the physical. They, numbers, transcend space and time though. They are universal and invariant and not in flux or change as the material world is. They are ideal and are grounded in minds and ultimately the platonic realm nested in the god mind. The physical world is VIRTUAL and not fundamental. Get rid of the idea that only that which is physical is 'real' and it all makes sense. This is backwards. So yes, they are real, but if you want to have a coherent world view, you had better become an idealist and platonist as opposed to a materialist. Idealism comfy by the way.
Nope. Multitudes composed of units do in fact exist. So do figures.
Euclidean geometry is consistent and complete.
>They can be APPLIED to the physical.
correction/clarification here
>Things like infinity and continuousness don't exist in the physical world. They can be APPLIED to the physical.
Continuous MODELS with things like continuous functions can be used to make predictions about the physical world to non-arbitrary precision and decimal places, so there is utility in them, but this is a MODEL only. It works because the delta of planck changes is so tiny that the physical words SEEMS continuous until you zoom in, then the pixels are apparent.

if we lock just air in a cube 1m3 how long it would take for the gasses particles to separate into layers according to their weight? and if it even possigble here on earth or we would have to send the cube into space?
You can do it in a cube with vacuum.
gases don't separate that way
it's like expecting soda to separate into layer of water and layer of corn syrup

doesn't matter how i flip it i keep getting to the same conclusion: free will is an illusion

If the universe can be predicted and we are a part of that universe, we also can be predicted

in fact, everything we do, everything that will ever exist and happen was already set in motion billions of years ago the moment the universe came into existing.

does anyone have an alternative theory?

all theories must accept at least one brute fact. it is impossible to formulate a theory with zero assumptions. it is necessary to postulate an uncaused thing if one wishes to avoid infinite regress. the buck must surely stop somewhere.

i don't agree with the computer analogy. modifying a computer isn't analogous to having atemporal causes, because both the computer and any person operating it are within spacetime. there aren't separate spacetimes for the computers and for us, we are sharing a single spacetime.

it isn't a priori false to postulate that each human decision is its own uncaused, brute fact. but in addition to the problem of describing something with a beginning as uncaused, this would result in a theory with countless assumptions, one for each and every human decision. i also can't see how it would entail freedom of will, since every decision "just is".
Demonstrably false, particularly if you only look at the educated
How about you get a tumor on your brain. It sure will change your consciousness. Tired of these /his/ losers coping about not having free will.
a tumor in your brain would be a reflection of your change in consciousness, not the other way around
you've got it backwards
the brain is a representation inside of the mind, depicting the cognitive process itself
You fucking idiot, that's not how it works. God damn tired of people denying the fucking obvious; Consciousness is totally reliant on physical properties because it is a result of physical properties. There's no shitty voodoo bullshit involved.

>It is my belief that in the next decade and in the next century the technical advances forged by category theorists will be of value to dialectical philosophy, lending precise form with disputable mathematical models to ancient philosophical distinctions such as general vs. particular, objective vs. subjective, being vs. becoming, space vs. quantity, equality vs. difference, quantitative vs. qualitative etc. In turn the explicit attention by mathematicians to such philosophical questions is necessary to achieve the goal of making mathematics (and hence other sciences) more widely learnable and useable. Of course this will require that philosophers learn mathematics and that mathematicians learn philosophy
