Re: Very brief electromagnetic history. / By Israel Socratus./

P.S. Faraday discovered relationship between magnetic and electric fields: how to use magnetism to induce electricity and therefore all our so-called “electrical” tools are “magneto-electrical”, they are artificial. Another effect, natural, is “electro-magnetic”, for example: photosynthesis . . . . ...

The starting way to the final theory: TOE.

The starting way to the final theory: TOE. ==.. Most physicists agree that two branches of physics must be taken as a starting points to the final theory – the Theory of Everything. One branch is high-energy particle physics and second one is cosmology. But today these two disciplines seem unrelated...

Re: The Universe on My T- Shirt.

Hi Socratus, There are no weirdness in the quantum world. Quantum world works pretty (with a discrete precision) smoothly. Certain weirdness is only in the imagination of some physicists :) Yha . . .some physicists have another point of view . . . =============================== Book ‘Dreams of a f...

Re: The Universe on My T- Shirt.

“ Today’s physicists are still struggling to come to grips with quantum weirdness, as they debate what the theory actually means. Or, to be more precise, some physicists debate what the theory means; many of them – perhaps most – simple exploit the fact that quantum mechanics works and leave the res...

Re: Where did the 'Big Bang' occur?

Scientists say that before the “big bang” was nothing: neither space nor time. In my opinion when we say “space”, “time” we must define more precisely. We must define more precisely that we are talk about “gravity-space” and “gravity-time”. Is my opinion correct? ====… First - SRT. a) Take SRT the t...

Re: What should the standards for testing in science be?

The head-shrinking crowd have a familiar hierarchy : " Neurotics build castles in the air; psychotics move in; psychiatrists collect the rent. " Maybe physicists have a similar analogy. Whatever happens or doesn't happen in the depth of /time/space/matter/ " Physicists build philosophical castles i...

Re: What should the standards for testing in science be?

If a physicist devises models which define a universe which makes no fucking sense he can simply conclude that we live in a universe which makes no fucking sense because making sense is not the physicist's core business. His job is to make bombs for the military and IPads for the hoi polloi. String...

Re: What should the standards for testing in science be?

There is a simple standard of testing anything: Does it work? A: I made this flying gizmo. B: Let's see it fly. A: Here you go! B: That's some cool! How's it do that? Now you can investigate why it flies. A launches into long explanation of materials, aerodynamics, gravity, propulsion, velocity, et...
