Hector's logic is impeccable
Hector's logic is impeccable. It is at the crux of understanding Reality.
Technically, I prefer the term Reality, to Hector's use of the term "universe" (this is a semantical problem that can easily be satisfied), which is a singularity; and thus, always...
Yes. but . . .
When I first commented "No," I did not like your order of the major and minor diameters. I felt they were contrived to match the integers rather than their ascending order. (You subsequently, reversed them.)
I, also, did not like your mixing two circular terms (radius...
I believe I understand the confusion
I believe that now I understand the confusion.
I stated: "the major diameter equals 2v (2 times vector) or p + a (I usually refer to the apogee as "o" because "a" is the amplitude; thought this would confuse, so used "a"; however, with that: p +...
Einstein's concerns with relativity
As to source: private discussions concerning alternative theory with Hans Bethe and Philip Morrison while Einstein was still alive.
However, it is also well documented that Einstein spent most of his adult life trying to reconcile SR and GR, which...
Love your epsilon ellipse.
Einstein's main contribution to SR and GR is that to his death he was well aware that neither were correct.
Unfortionately this has been lost on the Pomo elitists, beginning with Oppenheimer, that now set policy.
I agree with you (and with thanks to Elliot)
I completely agree with your assessment, which you have stated well.
I was en route to meet Einstein when I heard of his death earlier that morning.
You do his memory proud.
Love your signature; but your thoughts first caught my...
Solution now rejected.
I have reposted your answer below for ease of reference.
Now that you have clarified your position, I admit to being overly generous. And, I have, thus, decided to reject your solution for the following three reasons:
1.) The radius of a circle is ambiguous...
I'll accept your solution, as my given statements are difficult to construe.
I would prefer:
1 = perigee
0 = soliton (half a wave or half the focal length)
1 = vector (line from a focus to the end of the minor diameter)
1 = apogee
2 = major diameter.
