Need to dickslap a retard /sci/. Can you give me a hand?

I want to convince someone to either admit they're being a hypocritical fuck, start using arguments so stupid no one takes them seriously, or admit Anthrogenic Global Warming (AGW) is real.

Meant to reply to >>10087716

How do I know when I can multiply variables with coefficients? Like say I have (5^2 * 5^3)^2 why is this 5^10 and not 25^10? In mother case 4^-3 * 2^-3 is 8^-3 why is it not 8^-6? There ar many cases where the rules seem to change. I thought that you just couldnt multiply the variables and the coefficient is what could be multiplied but now I don’t know when it is right to do anything. Does anyone have a link that can explain these rules or just help me get them down? I have looked it up myself but I just keep getting unhelpful definitions and what not. Im studying for my ged and this has always tripped me up.

Whats the reasonable % of light speed we could attain with current technology + easy/cheap antimatter production. From an engineering standpoint, at what speed is it practical for large* manned craft to traverse interstellar space w/o getting assfucked by radiation or some other factor?

*if its relevant you can mention what exact size you consider optimal
10-15% is generally the max, as any faster will result in you getting buttfucked by relativistic space dust
Radiation can easily be dealt with by just having thicker shielding
there's no real "optimal" size, the size will be however large the person commissioning and crewing it wants it to be

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a good weekend.

I had this thought earlier today and I wanted to know if this is a phenomenon we might observe in near-light speed space travel. Unfortunately I did not know the math that would be needed to figure it on my own, so I was hoping someone here might know better. The idea is posted in the image. I understand this probably is not especially consequential in the scheme of things but still I wanted to know if it would take place.

Please let me know if there are any mistakes. I apologize for the image being incredibly boring.

Thank you for reading.

Thanks for the insight. Can you recommend any reading on this topic? As stated in the OP I don't really know the math behind it but I would love to do some reading in the area.

If for arguments sake, things like electromagnetism, strong and weak nuclear forces, time, light, heavier elements, water, god, life, consciousness etc are all children, grandchildren and great grand children of gravity, growing upward and outward in some kind of fractal or fibonacci spiral, which is the most likely order they evolved or complexified?

In the Lorentz factor (for time in this case):
[math]{\Delta t'={\frac {\Delta t}{\sqrt {1-{\frac {v^{2}}{c^{2}}}}}}}[/math]
I see that it accounts for instantaneous relative velocity. As far as I know, time dilation is reciprocal for two non-accelerating bodies (let's ignore gravitational fields for practicality), and the "time travel" happens during acceleration.
In the typical meme twin "paradox" (not a paradox) experiment, how would you calculate the total time "travelled"?
Is the acceleration irrelevant? As in, doesn't it matter how fast that relative velocity is achieved (and reversed)?
pic unrelated
The acceleration is actually what resolves the twin paradox, so it is important.
Yeah, that is why I am asking this.
not really, see

Do you get obsessed with natural numbers?

You should be for obvious reasons.

Natural numbers are the most important concept. Discovering them, discovering operations, etc.

Without natural numbers you can't think.
you don't need numbers

numbers are some offshoot branch of lower levels of thinking and patterns/concepts

More fundamental things are needed to branch up to and reach numbers.

We have 5 senses right? We can see, hear taste smell and touch. But how would we explain raw feelings, for example, explain colors? I know that receptor cells in our eyes detect light wavelength and then creates electrical signals that travel in the back of our brain. But what after? How that signal becomes color? Think about it. Everything we know about this world comes from our feelings. But feelings are not material. They can't be. This is proof that we live in simulated reality.
>But how would we explain raw feelings, for example, explain colors?

Thats not a feeling, thats a sensation.

>How that signal becomes color? Think about it.

About what? It enters a system that is built to interpret stimuli in a useful way. The shit entering it is still just an impulse signature.

>But feelings are not material. They can't be.

Computation is magic too? Are inventors wizards, harry?
I got brain damage once or twice or a few times from chronic pain, more specifically "atypical" trigeminal neuralgia. While I've not had another MRI to verify, it's a well documented fact that gray matter volume is steadily decreased with any constant high intensity sensory stimulus, which includes noxious stimuli and pain perception. The underlying mechanics behind the processes that give rise to my subjective experience of pain apparently literally causes progressive neurodegeneration.

Look, I like solipsism and all the rest of it, but there is a good deal of evidence that your subjective experience is in fact -generated- by the brain, via its shifting through global states, rather than acting as an antenna / receiver or some sort of proxy to observe this universe.

In short, you can't just say "there's no object I know to look at and see feelings in the same way I look at a rock and can tell it's a rock." Ya ain't gettin' out of it that easy.

Was John Carlyle Raven the smartest guy who ever walked this planet ?
you get further back by having a high intelligence through the same process. too many considerations leads to a state of unsustainable flux unless mediated. that's why a mutual relationship forms when high intelligence individuals are partially indoctrinated towards their efforts.

How exactly do you "establish a relationship" with a professor so he'll write you a recommendation letter? Do you talk about sports with him? Do you give him a blowjob? What do you do?

This. Basically, help the nigga out.
do research with him. it's the only thing that counts in a rec from a prof in most cases.

No, science always recommended eugenics (based on theory of evolution).
Because your conception of "science" is mainstream and hasn't incorporated other elements, like herbalism and ethnopharmcology. In fact, use of polygonum multiflorum and washing the hair with the same, and withania somnifera, green tea, asparagus racemosus, and peppermint will halt hair loss and spur regrowth of some follicles. You've also neglected to research the causes of hair loss, like diet, toxic exposures, and lifestyle, and instead assumed you had "genetic" problems and testosterone just naturally goofed you up. But alas, it was not so. For old Chinese legends tell of men in their late 60's who begin to take on the he shou wu, they regrow their hair, their phallic magnitude and sexual vigor is increased many fold, they have many children, and give many beautiful women the D many times, dying >200 years old.
