Before I let you spoonfeed me, please listen.
I think this website is really fishy! He sells his books on his "perfect nutrition diet" rant and his articles over articles about how milk may be linked to autism or how the atkins diet will make your weewee limp!
I am just hyper suspicious - especially if somebody wants me to buy his book!

Since invoking the name of God, which has something to do with the numbers 4 and 7, is punishable by death in most cases, you can call anything in between 7 and 8 or possibly even 9 people condemned to death but with their sentences not yet carried out

Absolutely. Geography would be just as interesting regardless of Humanity's existence.

if we could discover how to access the 4th dimension of space, wouldn't that be the ultimate place to hide things?

but what if that's the ghost dimension? We could unleash ghouls and spirits and such.

>destructive interference tearing spacetime
Just because its called “destructive” interference doesnt mean it destrys things. Read a fucking book. Destructive interference of gravity waves would be further away from tearing spacetime than gravity waves with no interference, but it doesnt matter because this entire thought is pseudoscientific jibberish.

>this would prove god
No it wouldnt. All modern descriptions of god place him squarely outside the laws of physics. No amount of universes, infinite or not, makes god any more or less real.

>Implying universes outside this one conform to traditional laws of physics. Maybe you should pick up a fucking book and knock yourself out with it.

Under every theory that is even considered, the high energy energy density created in the constructive interference (the term you are looking for) would just form a black hole.
>>
>>9250975
It doesnt matter what laws of physics they conform to. If god existed before the laws of physics then he cannot be described by any variation of those laws.

>The Pliocene coming back to greet us edition

Earth's history shows us that the last time the atmosphere had a CO2 concentration of 400ppm was more than 2.5 million years ago. Sequence stratigraphic backstripping shows that sea level was approximately 22 m above present-day levels, implying that this is the threshold for the collapse of marine-based Antarctic Ice sheets.

Lately I have tuned a little into what is available on Quantum Science out there and the hocus-pocus around it.
I was wondering:
was there something about it?
is there ESP for instance?
can you alter random numbers by will?
what are your thoughts on this?
is there some field our science can't grasp yet and we are in fact interconnected by some field already? maybe like a huge matrix?

anyone tried?

The Many Worlds Interpretation of QM is now commonly accepted among physicists. As far as I understand it, that means that every possible universe exists and their distribution is fixed.

If I decide to take in and take care of a stray cat, there will be another universe in which I don’t. If I decide not to take in the cat, there will be another universe in which I do. No matter what I do, there will always be a stray miserable cat and a happy cat with a roof over its head. What I do doesn’t change the amount of “suffering” that exists, because its distribution is fixed. The only thing that can be determined by my actions is what I perceive in this universe.

Doesn’t this destroy any sensible notion of altruism beyond selfish incentives?

It’s got nothing to do with human decisions, only with wave functiona collapsing to different eigenstates (possible outcomes). Since a lot of things are possible at a quantum level, just very unlikely, if the MWI was real all kinds of things could happen, e.g. a bowl falling through a table it stands on. Mostly it would be very small changes though
