    Is Science Becoming a Religion?

    Amen, Amen, and Amen. Amen! Again, Amen! And, once again, Amen! Yes, but by definition: the simplest must be the most complex.

    Logic, Metaphysics, and the Idea of an Expanding Universe

    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...

    Fibonacci sequence

    I disagree I disagee; as you also have the right to. I suspect we will need Korzybski (now dead) to referee.

    Fibonacci sequence

    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...

    Fibonacci sequence

    I believe I understand the confusion I believe that now I understand the confusion. No. 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 +...

    Why isn't the mathematician Henri Poincaré acknowledged as the true discoverer of SR?

    Einstein's Limitations Einstein was well aware of his math limitations; and, complained often to Planck, in letters, of his difficulties.

    Why isn't the mathematician Henri Poincaré acknowledged as the true discoverer of SR?

    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...

    Fibonacci sequence

    ??????? What part of the below answer do you not understand? "Actually, the major diameter equals 2v or p + a." It was a statement concerning the situation; not intended as flattery.

    Why isn't the mathematician Henri Poincaré acknowledged as the true discoverer of SR?

    Einstein 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.

    Why isn't the mathematician Henri Poincaré acknowledged as the true discoverer of SR?

    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...

    ???????? You're very good at cutting to the crux. Actually, the major diameter equals 2v or p + a.

    Sorry Sorry, I forgot that there were other interpretations. I was referring to the distance between the foci. Sorry, if I confused.

    Fibonacci sequence

    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...

    Fibonacci sequence

    Solution accepted 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. You...

    Fibonacci sequence

    Not quite correct No; though you've got the idea. Your answer is contrived, in mixed terms, to fit the sequence. I don't see how the major axis and the diameter can have different values? The answer is best in elliptical terms, such that each term represents a different elliptical...

    Fibonacci sequence

    1, 0, 1, 1, 2... The revised Fibonacci sequence (one or two additional terms, depending upon your definition of FS, at the beginning) is the first unending Natural integer (x equals One, "1") sequence of the unending, simple additive, sequences of the Brunardot Series, which series is...

    Does anyone know any practical uses for the number Phi?

    Phi, pi, Fibonacci sequence, and Nature Phi is exactly the perigee of an ellipse that has One, “1,” for the Natural function (often referred to as half the focal length, which length, heuristically, represents a wave; thus, the soliton equals One, “1,” which represents the smallest pulse of...

    The past IS real?

    The Present Does Not Exist. Nice quotations. :) I have no quibble with the past and the future existing as I look to the Cosmos. However, I would strongly argue that the present does not exist. It must be either past or future. The duality of Infinity is beyond Reality.

    Fibonacci sequence and circles The Fibonacci sequence is a portion of the "revised" Fibonacci sequence. Five terms of the revised Fibonacci sequence can be found within five different structural parts of a circle. What are the structural parts of said circle?

    Why are strings not invoked as a solution to QM nonlocality?

    Metaphysical Paradigms Thanks for unaccustomed compliment. The Big Bang, according to theory, was just one Bang counter to the illusion of gravity’s attraction. This single bang cannot account for observed accelerating, galactic recession; nor, can it explain how “light” (energy)...

    Is String Theory A Waste Of Time?

    The intent of intellectual discussion should be that all participants remain upright with a broadened vision. There was plenty of time before the morning of April 19, 1955 to award a Nobel for SR and GR if the original intent was not a "slap in the face" by the inside academic elite. Don't...

    Is String Theory A Waste Of Time?

    Predictions ST can predict much with slight adjustments in the theory. Like for instance: the internal geometry of the "strings." Unfortunately, its predictions cover the gamut of current enigmas, which theoretical physicists are loathe to discuss in detail. Probably, for fear their...

    Is String Theory A Waste Of Time?

    At my age, details often slightly transmute from conversations with Philip Morrison 50 years ago. IAS was incorporated May 20, 1930; but did not open its doors until 1933, at which time Albert Einstein was its first professor.

    Is String Theory A Waste Of Time?

    There is much cause for Pessimism Weinberg has been calling for the apparent need for a "new physics" since before "Dreams of a Final Theory," 1992. Einstein was never personally accepted by American academia. A special institute (IAS) had to be built just for him because, as an...

    Is String Theory A Waste Of Time?

    Bonds A bond, as originally referenced herein, must be a physical manifestation, as must all phenomena . . . unlike currently proposed “action-at-a-distance.” A bond is an attractive force that arises from the motion of energy when that energy is such that it is trying to separate that...
