Re: What is gravity?

_______ (Continued from prior post) ...just as I have been suggesting regarding the nature and workings of gravity, likewise, the glass-like transparency of the so-called “ether” (which, among other things, presents itself as the empty space between the stars and planets) is just another information...

Re: What is gravity?

...I would go so far as to suggest that anything that exists on the opposite side of absolute nothingness can be considered as being “actual stuff” in some context or another (what else would it be?). Fair enough. I was simply trying to distinguish between materialism and idealism, or any idea that...

Re: What is gravity?

Gravity is a name that humans give to a particular phenomenon, to argue that the name or word is wrong is incorrect and pointless. Argue about the phenomenon of objects falling towards larger objects and why it happens. Saying there is no such thing as gravity is stupid in the extreme,... What in t...

Re: What is gravity?

To be totally honest, and to introduce another metaphor into the mix, I personally believe that the phenomenon of gravity, along with every other phenomenon encountered up at the “local” level of reality, is a “software” issue. You could be right, seeds. For me it comes down to the philosophical qu...

Re: What is gravity?

Which is heavier, a ton of lead or a ton of feathers? Doc, you have presented a non sequitur that completely ignores the premise of the theory. _______ That is not a "non-sequitur", it addresses the question of how some peoples conception of objects affects their perception of that object. Too many...

Re: What is gravity?

Dunno seeds. The defining feature of entanglement is that it's 'superlumimal' ie faster than light. By my reckoning, that would imply that gravity shouldn't disminish with distance; which it demonstrably does. That’s a good point, uwot. However, as a thought experiment... ...imagine being able to i...

Re: What is gravity?

In other words, you'll need to find some BS to explain the contradiction. Well, there's no reason to slander me. I had a theory that didn't pan out, like I thought it would. Maybe it will not pan out at all. But I'll need to brood some more, before I eventually discard it. Hi QuantumT (and welcome ...

Re: Is cloning = reincarnation?

We're at the point where a human being can be cloned. It raises issues such as a way to cheat death (if a violent criminal killed someone who can be restored to life, what should we do with the criminal?) Your thoughts please. PhilX 🇺🇸 Cloning would be nothing more than the “slightly delayed” birth...

Re: What is gravity?

What is gravity?

_______ (Warning – extreme speculation ahead. :)) When it comes to the question of what gravity is all about, is it possible that it has something to do with the superpositioning and entanglement of our quantum underpinning? For instance, a planet’s gravitational status is based upon its overall mas...

Re: Infanticide

This is our essential disagreement. You seem to assume that Man has inner unity and is a seed which will evolve in accordance with universal evolution. No, Nick, we will not evolve in accordance with universal evolution. We - as beings whom I believe have been given the gift of eternal life (which ...

Re: Infanticide

Unlike christianity which has declared that all babies are born in original sin, and that any who die prior to baptism will burn in hell for eternity. That’s an excellent point, uwot, and one that I have given a lot of thought to in the past. I've addressed that point some time ago, and suggested i...

Re: The Theory of Everything.
