Re: Stopping time

Here is a hilarious way to speed up, slow down or theoretically stop time evolution. So take a quantum system, for example an unstable particle, that will soon decay. Keep observing this particle as frequently as possible. (It is not possible to observe it infinitely frequently, so time evolution c...

Re: Jewish Bloodline?

The rest of the world needs to butt out. It's between the Palestinians and the Israelis. Every time another country sticks its self-righteous snout into the affairs of another it only makes a much bigger mess. You don't have to look very far to see that happening. Human societies are incredibly fra...

Re: God is testing us all

I wish you and your God well. I'm an Atheist, but only at war with Fundies (they presume t...

Re: God is testing us all

Where you got the idea of "God's moral compass" out of my argument is beyond me. Is this a strawman or a g...

Re: Music

Here's a question I haven't seen others get into. When you listen to a song, with or without singing, do you just listen to it for its sound (which I often do which I think makes me an audiophile) or do you keenly listen for the words, or it depends?

Re: What does silence mean?

silence is golden. a period for self reflection and thus wisdom. and sadly the enemy of modern culture, where empty noise rules. noise for its own sake ;-/.
