Re: Double Slit Experiment

I think 100 dots is plenty to show such a pattern. 10? Probably not. The wiki page on the double slit experiment actually has output of about 10, 100, 1000, maybe 2000 and 4000 from the looks of it. The 100 plot is not enough. 500 should do I think. You could probably do it with one lab, but change...

Re: Double Slit Experiment

Please remember though that my interpretation is a totally deterministic non QM one where the first particle will always go straight on because there is nothing to interfere with yet. Well that throws it out the window right away. If you predict the first particle always goes straight, you only nee...

Re: Double Slit Experiment

Yes, Atla in my explanation the particles do not interact with each other, at least not directly. That is correct. They only interact with (and are guided by) the waves generated by previous particles. They can only be said to interact with each other very indirectly via the waves they form. One pa...

Re: Double Slit Experiment

And you can always trust PBS Space Time, because PBS Space Time is, although slightly popular science, in the more serious business of popular science. It explains what actually happens, it is non-fiction, serious and trustworthy. If it says what you say here in this post, it is doing metaphysics, ...

Re: The Fine Structure (Sommerfeld's) Constant

Thanks, Noax, for seeing my point. We believe there would be no structure; much like there is no structure in the overwhelming majority of our universe that we know of, that results in movement forms based on the complexity of chemical structures. What? There is structure everywhere in this univers...

Re: The Fine Structure (Sommerfeld's) Constant

Second of all, even if the Sommerfeld's Constant was not played out like in our universe, the reality would still go on. We don't know how that universe would be structured. Sentient beings could evolve there too, in a form of biology of a strange, strange way to us. Maybe electromagnetism would tr...

Re: Can we live in another world?

Pressumption 1: If the mind/consciousness is a state of matter we should be able to ressurrect the dead, teleport our minds etc. - at least theoretically, simply by replicating the same set of mathematical equations that make up our minds just in different entities in different times and different ...

Re: Constructing a God Type Table

Well, I always felt bad for poor old #144,001, just missing on the cut. Harsh. I'm actually thinking of #144000, who is getting in only because I purposefully didn't make the cut. Greater love hath no man than he gives his spot in heaven for another. This is the exact same reasoning that causes a C...

Re: Failure of Relativism

Note there is no absolute meaning to any word other than reasonable consensus, e.g. it was commonly accepted 'gay = joy' in the past, but now it is 'gay = homosexual[ity].' ... You have lots of knowledge gaps re philosophical elements. They are Kant elements, not general philosophical ones, so I ne...

Re: Failure of Relativism

The cup you are holding is not a transcendental idea, thus not a transcendental illusion. I didn't think any idea was transcendental under the view. Maybe I don't know what is meant by 'transcendental idea'. Yes, it is a term used, perhaps as a distinction between a round circle and a square circle...

Re: Failure of Relativism

There are various meaning of 'idea'. In the Kantian sense, 'idea' refer to philosophical ideas [in contrast to concepts] which are very specific. The claim 'God exists as real' is a philosophical idea. In the most real sense this resulting claim is illusory, i.e. God is a transcendental idea and a ...

Re: Failure of Relativism

Remarkable. An unknown radius of orbiting distance and unknown spin rate are inferior to the present. I said different, not inferior. Our environment would be inferior to whatever evolved in that different environment. You are making an invalid inference, by saying that the UNKNOWN would have preve...

Re: Failure of Relativism

I am very familiar with Kant's overall theme and principles but there is no way I am in a tip-top state to know every detail since 4 years ago and kept up to date with refreshers on main principles. It seemed to be a very basic point, not an obscure detail. I had to look it up because I'm no expert...
