    Albert Einstein's Riddle

    I believe you are mistaken. That was my deduction some time ago. The chart looks like this ------------|1st|-------|2nd|---------|3rd|--------|4th|---------|5th|---- Nation--| Norwegian--||Danish-||-----British---||German---||Swedish-------|| Color...

    If a tree falls in the woods

    Quantum physics suggests that when you aren't looking at an object it doesn't exist, or exists in a vague and undetermined state. When something falls (yet it doesn't exist) does the nonexistent object make a nonexistent sound? No. But if we postulate that the tree does exist, then as...

    Will humans ever really understand why the universe exists?

    Hahaha... right. You do know that if it does transform into a black hole no one is going to notice it. It will be massive...for it's size, but it wouldn't transform US into a black hole, nor would it transform anything except the mazons into a black hole. Back to the topic. Of course we...

    How to prove existence?

    you can't prove anything exists besides yourself. Search the archives, and you'll find some deep conversation on the concept of existence. That wouldn't work octelgodopod, due to he could say something along the lines "If I don't exist then I'm not asking you this question, prove to me my...

    Does random exist?

    i remember a randomness existence thread somewhere in the archives.. anyway. True randomness is in the eye of the beholder.. I personally don't believe in randomness. Chaos isn't even randomness, just disorganization.

    Have you accepted death yet?

    I'm rather young, and I haven't accepted death. Yet I don't fear death. To fear death is to limit life, and every day is a good day to die. No day is a good day to throw your life away. Granted, I've almost died 7 times...but still If i get hit with death, I want no regrets in the times...

    Hen Precedes Egg, Mother Precedes Infant

    Ahh. the egg only came before the chicken one generation(the very first time) everytime after that I'm relatively certain the chicken came first. I see the question of "Which came first the chicken or the egg?" as flawed. Mainly because the chicken came through mutation and natural selection...

    Immature= nonconformist

    In the terms of your context, then immature can mean nonconformist. But in general terms, I think you are asking, "Is the word 'immature' now slanged to describe 'noncomformity'?" I don't really think that happens around the country, probably only in your experience. In philosophy you have to...

    Albert Einstein's Riddle

    A chart seems like the most useful tool to help solve this riddle: Five columns for the five houses, and five rows for nationality, house color, type of drink, type of cigar, and finally, pets. Clue #8 states the man in the middle house drinks milk, so we can start by filling in that one of the...

    What does everything strive for? Randomness? Perfection? Conformity? Acceptance?

    Entropy...and what category does entropy fall under? Randomness? Perfection? Acceptance? Conformity?... You don't specify anything. Just a word and a link. Anyone can put a word, and make it a link." [Broken] Hmm...

    What does everything strive for? Randomness? Perfection? Conformity? Acceptance?

    In asking this question, I am assuming randomness exists, but I cannot be certain. I am also assuming that 'perfection'. I cannot be certain of that either. I have also heard that everything strives for perfection, but I also cannot be certain. From this, I have induced that some people strive...

    Proof of the Future

    A post to the original question How can there be no proof of the future, if the present itself is not presented with some sort of danger? If the present is not in peril, then surely the future will come without any reasonable doubt. I guess there is the possibility of the peril coming in...

    The Mind's Eye

    The "mind's eye" of which you speak, and a scenario never before witnessed... isn't that the same thing as seeing your thoughts, or memories even? I would imagine they are very similiar, like in a dream, your brain can understand the concept of light because they have experienced it. I would...

    Anything is possible

    You are applying your human logic (assuming you are human) to a higher entity in which case does not apply. Impossible to be impossible? As moridin would say--contradictory But I agree with you, because I think you are essentially saying that since it is impossible to be proven it is...

    How does one define existence outside the physical world?

    Hmmm.... So analyze this statement. "Nothing is for certain, even this statement" Is that above statement incorrect? If it is incorrect please point out its flaw, unless im interpretting what your saying differently than you intend for us to interpret it. The statement is self...

    Anything is possible

    I think he is saying "us" as in us as a society, and tricked "us" as in him. He's probably second guessing his existence right about now. lol

    Near Death Studies - Consciousness After Death

    By saying this you assume that the concept of a "soul" even exists. It can be argued that there are no souls in your body. I personally believe that the "soul" was derived from some religion, and gave people reasons to stay happy about the thought of death.. Of course religion can be...

    Anything is possible

    WTF (f as in frick!!) Yeah, wanna run that by an atheist? By saying "god cannot creat a stone..." you are assuming the concept of a 'god' exists. Anything is NOT possible.. If anything were possible, I'd be able to fly, run 100,000 mph, and crap out of my hands. You'd be able to do it...

    What's the point of life

    I think it is probably just human nature, and if you don't understand human nature then you probably won't understand how they can survive without someone to tell them how to think. In my opinion (regarding human nature of course) is that a lot of people in this world are generally more...

    The Question : is mathematics discovered or invented?

    This is very interesting to say that the inches were invented, because If I were to apply what you just said to math, but instead of your thumb use numbers (just lucky enough to have them) and then use equations, (which were invented according to your post;consider the equations the inches) then...

    Is anyone baffled by the thought of their own death?

    You can believe in anything really. Hell, I can believe there is a big spaghetti monster up in the sky who urinates to make it rain. Doesn't exactly make it true. Just because a lot of people think something is real, doesn't mean it is; for example thousands of people claim to have seen...

    What does the 'not equal to' sign mean?

    The "not equal sign" isn't really used in the context you are trying to use it for.. saying blue does not equal read is not same as blue equals zero red. It's actually means literally "not equal" as in two things are not equal to eachother. You are attempting to over analyze the meaning.

    Add the numbers from 1 to 100

    99+1 98+2 97+3 etc... 100+0 you take half of the number, and multiply it by 100, then add the number (5050) 1000*500+500= 500500 etc.

    Color Perception

    I think I understand what you are trying to get at... You are asking what if one child sees a different color than the other child does, (you refer to as "green") I often ponder to myself if anyone sees the same color, we My red could be your blue, (im not color blind), but it is just assumed...

    What's the point of life

    If you are attempting to suggest that life has no point, then I think you my friend, are very misguided at the moment. The point of life is to do what you got to do. If you have to be happy, then strive for happiness (isn't that what you are attempting to do anyways? By having someone prove...

    The Question : is mathematics discovered or invented?

    You can argue that it was invented by using this explanation... Replace "discovered" with "invented" and you have a comparable argument. I think that it is essentially impossible to determine how mathematics came to be, other than assuming that it was either discovered or invented. You can...
