1) Message boards : LHC@home Science : The Dimension of Feeling (Message 19123)
Posted 28 Feb 2008 by Ernesto Solis
Post:
I studied psychology and if more people would take that branch of science as a serious science we would have less of these discussions. Thanks to neuropsychology, we know that feelings are the results of biochemical reactions in the brain.


So true.

We know that the taste of food is a result of biochem in the mouth and nose, and of further biochem in the brain. We do not as a result lose interest in food.

We know that the joy of sex (as Alex comfort put it) is down to certain physio and biochem activities in the body and in the brain. We do not think that this means we lose interest in sex just because we understand it.

Ditto, ditto, ditto, any pleasurable or comforting activity may be explained in these terms, but very few are discounted simply because we understand a little about how the pleasure arises and what it is for.

Until we come to God, or gods, or religious feelings. Does not the same apply here? That understanding the mechanism behind the feeling does nothing to discount the importance, pleasure, or comfort of the feeling.

Since General Relativity & Quantum Mechanics break down in a black hole and thier is nowhere to turn. Is it possible that something in Thought(feeling), matter, & energy is an unopened door to the missing link of entering into one.

I watched this great documentary/movie on DVD a few months back called "What the Bleep, down the rabbit hole”. It was very interesting and I have so many questions for all you smart crunchers. Before I shoot away with the questions I wanted to give those who haven’t seen it a chance to look it over first. For those who have, I’d like to know what you thought about it and is their anything you could have added to the show to tie the different subject matters together.

Thanks and God Bless

I would take all the money of all the projects and have it earn interest
for 10 years. Then thier will be plenty for:

1) Safety protocals
2) A well designed space station
3) All of Burt Rutans designes when he murges with NASA
4) Moon Base Alpha
5) Mining the moon
5) Something beyond LISA
Or should we just stick to conquring the germ!!!

Frankly, after CERN discovers Sparticals and supersymmetry, were not
going to need the above.
Then again, I'm just a rookie!

What if we were travelling at 99.9% the speed of light and pushed the

This is the old one about shining a torch out of a vehicle moving at light speed isn't it?

Ernesto, I think that one gets filed along with "What happened before the start of Time?", "Is a cat a wave or a particle?" and "What would happen if the Pope wasn't a Roman Catholic?"



Any contribution from France is well appriciated.

Posted 15 Sep 2006 by Ernesto Solis
Post:
Anyway, what you want to do Ernie is not take glass to the moon, but make it there! I'm not sure what firing a few megajoules ( that you got from solar power ) through lunar dust does, but maybe it'll vitrify ( become glass-like ). :-)

Spot on! NASA's having a contest (MoonROx, the Moon Regolith Oxygen competition) to see who can build a device to extract 5 Kg of breathable oxygen from lunar simulant in only 8 hours. One technique (pyrolysis) utilizes concentrated solar energy (sunlight focused with a lens) to heat the lunar simulant, and what's leftover is '"slag", a low-oxygen, highly metallic, often glassy material', and it would make a good raw material for 'bricks, pavement, or radiation shielding'

Well, actually you would if heat dispersion though fluid convection is an issue, as it is, for example, for household windows


Good point, but I bet it's not cost effective for domestic insulation.

How many domestic windows are there on the moon?



There will be many someday!

How would Aerogel conpare to glass on the moon?

How can the two(Glass and Aerogel) strengthen a space station and where on the station can they be applied?

What in your opinions is the best material for

Only five? I saw more than that. Of course, there's no evidence that this is unedited NASA video. Even if it is, there are many explanations.

Remember: UFO = Unidentified Flying Object. Nothing says they're alien, or even extraterrestrial. They're just unidentified.



I know, its just one of those fun questions.
thanks for your reply

There is no travelling AT the speed of light.

What would be interesting would be if you were travelling at 95% the speed of light, but the optics of the magnifying glass were to slow light down to .9 the speed of light (when stationary).

The fact the magnifying glass is moving would be interesting.




Alex,
What if we were travelling at 99.9% the speed of light and pushed the
magnifying glass away from us. Could we see beyond the barrier of light speed?

Posted 21 Jul 2006 by Ernesto Solis
Post:
Frome Ben at Einstein@home:

Actually you can say a lot about galactic structure without knowing where the dark matter is. The spiral arms in spiral galaxies are density waves propagating around the galactic disk due to its rotation. They're not all that different from hurricanes in some ways, but on a grand scale. Instead of a little air getting squeezed so that water droplets condense on a timescale of hours and produce an "arm" of clouds, you've got the interstellar gas getting squeezed so that it condenses on a timescale of millions of years and produces stars. The spiral arm propagates because the biggest stars burn fast and die in big explosions, which push out bubbles in the interstellar medium and compress the next bit of gas further around the galactic disk, which makes more stars down there, which blow ... and so on.

There is some thought that spiral galaxies are just ellipticals that got these waves triggered by close encounters or mergers with other galaxies. Our galaxy is surrounded by several little satellite galaxies (including the Magellanic Clouds which you can see in the southern sky) and a shredded streamer of stars which looks like another one in the process of being eaten. So it looks like we had a "recent" (less than a billion years) encounter with another galaxy that got ripped up and gave us our spirals.

If I recall correctly, bars are basically the same but involve the concentration of gas and dust near the center of the galaxy which generally has different dynamics from the disk out where we (and the spiral arms) live.

Hope this helps,

Ben

Post:
Are their any similarities between the way strings
in (string theory) are tied down to our universe
membrane and the white magnetic field lines (or sunspots) connected to the suns magnetic carpet?

Another question to add to the original!

While white magnetic field lines have a positive & negative polarity.
How is Electro/Magnatism (polarity) associated with strings? (grounded)

Always an honor to ask my fellow crunchers!

20) Message boards : LHC@home Science : Magnifying light speed Questions (Message 14241)
Posted 5 Jul 2006 by Ernesto Solis
Post:
This was from Debugas at Einstein@home

at the speed of light your time stops.
If you moving very close to the speed of light then things in front of you that you approach will be changing very fast (live and age in an eye blink) and the things you leave behind you will look almost freezed (passing very slowly)

mirror in front of you (that travels together with you) will give you reflection up until the very speed of light. At the speed of light the mirror will be at zero distance from you and give you immediate reflection of your current state (or you can treat it as giving no reflection) When space becomes flat there is no space to speak about moving back and forth and reflecting anything (i mean in the direction of your movement)?

The more interesting question here is this: if you put a clock in front of your mirror and try to compare the clock in your hand and the clock-reflection that comes back. will both show the same time ? What the difference will be ? will it be changing (decreasing increasing) if you move faster ?



What will you see if you have a magnifying glass in
front of you?

i don't see how it would be different in any way from what you see when you do not move. Have in mind that when you move at speed close to speed of light the things in front of you that you are approaching get magnified by themselves (well not exactly magnified but they approach you and it looks like they stretch out from the destination point of your movement) - well in normal situation when you look at road in front of you it looks narrowing the farther you look , at the speed of light however it will not look narrowing - it will look equally wide at any distance ahead. So for magnifying glass there is nothing to magnify because all distances ahead of you become zero - collapse to the plane perpendicular to the direction of your movement.

At this point i would like to mention wave-function collapse paradox.
If you look at two entangled photons moving in opposite directions and then detect one's polarization immidiately knowing that the other's one polarization must be perpendicular. This looks for you as faster than light collapse of wave function. But for those photons the space is flat and they are still at zero distance from each other. Could this provide a solution to the paradox ? Look at paradox from photons point of view ;)



Where would a video camera have to be placed to record such an event?

sorry i don't get your question. You mean how an outside observer would monitor your motion ? the observer that is standing still ahead of you will not see you until the very moment you reach him (interestingly if Jesus Christ arrives in the light-speed spaceship to earth we will have no warning before his arrival - he would indeed come as promissed in the bible - unexpectedly without prior warning ). Incoming at light speed objects cannot be seen in advance so we can get unexpected incoming at any moment (and actually some scientists were warning us about incoming very fast objects from the milky way central parts).
The observer staying behind you will see you freezed (when you move at close to speed of light the objects that you run away from they will look almost freezed and from those objects standpoint you will also seem to be changing very slowly)
