Re: "can you guess his name?"

I serve no master; I wear no leash; I carry no mark Henry, apart from religious nuts, nobody thinks otherwise. Believe it or not, here in London, while driving too fast and possesing good quality drugs could piss off the authorities I don't have to give a fuck. The USA has more people in prison tha...

Re: "can you guess his name?"

no one on the other side ever gets tasked, by you or any one, to provide links, so why should I comply? Are there only two sides? Fuck it, no one has to do anything. if you're interested: go to c-span's site Well yes I could, and maybe I could spend the next I don't know how long trying to find the...

Particles with purpose?

What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space. Erwin Schrödinger. However, fundamental particles are whatever make tracks in particle detectors; and they at least are pretty distinct. That understanding solves all metaphysical question...

Re: Particles.

...it is a fact that no one knows what fundamental particles or their associated field are 'made of'. There are no fundamental particles. It's layers of metaphor all the way down. Things are only as distinct as we make them. Coupla quotes for ya: We must be clear that when it comes to atoms, langua...

Re: It's about time.

I've had another brilliant idea :idea: - how's this for a bloody brilliant experiment to test the actual velocity that the Earth is actually traveling in 3D space? The problem is the rest clock - it isn't at absolute rest. What you end up with is 14 different measurements relative to your not reall...

Re: How to waste time.

...the so called, "time dilation" is NOT even correct. Uh-huh. So why did the clocks in the Hafele-Keating experiment show different times? For the EXACT SAME reasons that I explained, to you, previously. What, so called, "time" is measured against, or more correctly what 'it' actually IS, which cl...
