its quite simple really: if you can show everything as maths, you deal with real science

if you cant produce math but require WORDS WORDS WORDS instead, its a scam and not science

here is true vs untrue fields

real science:
-biology (biology can be explained by physics and chemistry eventhough we dont have maths for it yet)

shit scam field:
-psychology (doing statistics math doesnt make it science since you cant turn mental illness descriptions into maths the only thing you can do is create excel charts for dumb statistics)
-most of the other fields arent even worth mentioning using the word science, psychology at least tried to research one particular part of biology, that is, human mind which is a biological construct so while psychology is shit it gets honorable mention of at least researching something that exists instead of trying to research something that doesnt exist
>if you can show everything as maths, you deal with real science
You can define whatever you want, and it may work, but it isn't real.
you can talk shit however you want and it doesnt make it real (like psychology)
the only reason psychology keeps it science designation is because governments can use it
Stopped reading there.
>biology can be explained by physics and chemistry eventhough we dont have maths for it yet
why should it be different from psychology tho:
>psychology can be explained by biology eventhough we dont have maths for it yet
both doesn't have any concrete theory or mathematic formulas to express any bollocks. they're both collecting data and torture them to produce nonsenses (gender are non-binary, anyone?)
the only real sciences are physics and chemistry. math isn't a science, it's above science and is the language sciences are written in. all other fields are pseudoscientific bullshit even though they try really hard to cast themselves as one.

Got this question from a sibling, I'm a brainlet that barely passed high school like 15 years ago.
Since you have cropped out the question it's kind of hard to answer it.
That's the picture as i got it, i believe it's meant to be a percentage and i got 24.53%, no idea beyond that.
Not her, but since [math]X[/math] is discrete for any [math]x \in X[/math] there is some [math]\varepsilon_x>0[/math] such that [math]B_{\varepsilon_x}(x)\cap X=\{x\}[/math].
Take the open cover [math]\{B_{\varepsilon_x}(x):x \in X\}[/math] of [math]X[/math] and note it has a finite subcover iff [math]X[/math] is finite.
I got .893

Taking inverses is a continuous function and thus maps dense subsets of any set S into dense subsets of the image of S.

I really like puzzle games. Levels have multiple solutions and it's calming to try random things or to intuitively solve it.
I loved arithmetic and geometry, then I got to algebra and it's just memorisation and punishment if you diverge from applying the agreed upon optimal method, there is even more punishment if you brute force and exhaust a certain part by guessing. Then I got to calculus and that felt just the same but more difficult.
It wasn't until I took logic that math was fun again.
So I started wondering, is there a more free and puzzle like way to study and get good at algebra and calculus or is that just how they are? Needing to know a bunch of methods that you know where to plug in like the most boring jigsaw puzzle ever? I mean Newton didn't have that.
Thank you.

If at any point n becomes odd, or if n was initially odd, it just blows up to infinity, because 2n+1 is also odd, right? And unless the initial n is a power of 2, halving it over and over again will eventually reach an odd number that will also blow up to infinity, won't it? am i missing something here?

Thanks to the jews none of those numbers can be trusted at all. They have tainted everything with their corruption, stupidity and incompetence.
Scientists complain about people not being vaccinated all the fucking time, you fucking idiot. Get your fucking shots.

Can and should also get their fucking shots. Fuck off and die.

Another thing scientists call for is vaccine programs for other countries and for trying to change our policies so vaccines that would otherwise simply expire get shipped abroad to be used. They don't want unvaccinated migrants either.

So what was the disagreement, then?

How can we be expected to deal with men (primarily white men) who feel entitled to having sex and a female house slave despite having a small penis? I have here a peer reviewed article from an academic journal that breaks down each and every single undue entitlement these small-dicked white guys think they're supposed to have, and I never realized how bad white dudes' psychosis actually is. This was an eye-opening read for me, and made me realize that the line between a dicklette and an incel (a known terrorist sub-group of the Western world's population) is way too fine to consider separate from each other. Is there a way to put small-dicked (smaller than 18cm x 13cm) dudes into re-education (with possible chemical castration) camps so they don't commit a bombing just because they're biological failures?

They just have to start you on something else first to try a non stimulant. They usually suggest Wellbutrin or Straterra, you do that for a month (or just fake it) then say it didn’t help and you want to try something else
It's fucking awful that an adult with a problem is treated like a junky in your "land of freedom".

Street amphetamine is literally 5 times less expensive and a 35yo nerd like me could score some in 10 minutes.
Non-stimulating drugs might work, but the fact that people with ADHD are impatient and compulsive should matter.

why is math so hard?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Gauss and Cauchy ruined it by introducing the dogma of "complex numbers". If we corrected this error math would become much easier and more intuitive.
Are you filtered by complex analysis what is your problem with it?
Superficially, one might assume I got filtered. But I prefer to frame it differently. Complex analysis got filtered by me. I exposed how unintuitive and ungeometric it is.

Because Gödel proved that you can't prove something with its own system or something like that.

How do you raise a kid who will end up getting straight As and blasting through AP classes like they're nothing? I know damn well IQ plays a role, but even if you have a particularly high IQ, there is a lot more that goes into getting good grades. I figure these kids have to be getting some coaching from either their parents or professionals their parents hire.

It's easy to get your child years ahead of their peers academically, by homeschooling them. But it's more important to their success, that they have a good work ethic and they know how to make connections and socialize. You as the parent, having connections and the money to send them to university helps alot too.

You could have an 200IQ child with a B- average, because they don't put in any effort. They might not know the point of getting good grades, or have no friends that cheer them on. They could even be one grade too far ahead of their peers.
If the 160+ IQ children were to grow up together in a school system that gave them challenges, I guess they would grow up with a better life than many do now.
Yes, and what's your point? Reality is that schools dominated by Asians are the top performing schools and social cred in those schools is based on academic standing. So I ask again, what is your point?
If social cred in those schools is dominated by academic achievement then why are 90% of those kids retards anyway?
Could you elaborate upon the voucher system? I thought it was a charter school 'lottery' admission pipeline.

Let's say hypothetically that we took our stock solar system and replaced the 4 gas giants with a low end red dwarf star like Proxima Centauri, giving the two stars roughly 15 AU of separation (and leaving the inner solar system unchanged).

How different would the climate on Earth be because of this? It would still receive the overwhelming majority (i.e 99%) of stellar radiation from the main sun, with the other sun being just a bit brighter than a full moon.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Surprisingly, this wouldn't necessarily destabilize Earth's orbit.

To answer the question: Proxima Centaui luminosity = 0.0017 sols. That's basically how much less light Earth would receive if it was orbiting Proxima at 1 AU. At its closest approach to Earth at 14 AU distance (when they are on the same side of the sun), it would be 196 times weaker than that, so 0.00000867346 sols. That is an absolutely negligible contribution. If a planet was in orbit around Proxima alone at a semi-major axis of 14 AU, it would be colder than a witches teet.

I unironically would love to see a speculative alternative history of the American space program and its missions to the red dwarf.

Just for fun I'd have two planets orbiting the dwarf, including one in the habitable zone with water.
>colder than a witches teet.
Is that an actual saying? I thought the retard said it in the book because it sounds stupid.
>with the other sun being just a bit brighter than a full moon
What would the consequences be towards human belief systems and astrology? Would people categorise it as an entirely separate star, or just consider it a really big planet?
