    I've observed that by putting great effort into learning concepts

    Man. I smoked for 20 years, about half a pack a day. I quit smoking about a month ago, am doing just fine. Then I was randomly surfing YouTube and came across theme from Civilization II, It's a PC game that came out in 1996 that I use to play while smoking. Waaaay back in 1996. As...

    Is there a connection between spin and KE/mass-energy equivalence?

    Does the spin magnetic moment of these particles act like a toroid or a line (a +/- charged particle moving in straight line)?

    Is there a connection between spin and KE/mass-energy equivalence?

    Bosoms (energy'ish) are 1 spin integers, Fermions (mass'ish) are 1/2 spin integers. KE=1/2MV^2 E=1MV^2 I've only been trying to wrap my puny mind around spin for longer than 10 years, these spins creates magnetic poles right? In all 3 dimensions?

    What's the matter with a Particle Zoo?

    The particle zoo infers a more simplistic base ruleset, like atoms creating an almost infinite amount of chemical contraptions. Why are some particles more stable than others?

    Correlation between science and atheism/agnosticism

    I was atheist (not the militant kind, I just didn't care) before I studied math and physics in college. 1) Energy/Mass is conserved, meaning the universe had to be created. Something from nothing has never been observed. 2) The genesis story in the bible, while the timetable isn't perfect...

    Favorite Sci-Fi television or movie?

    My vote: Farscape! I haven't bought a movie in 6 years, but I just bought all 4 seasons of Farscape a couple months ago. It's the best.

    Beethoven vs. Mozart

    I'm not big on classical music, too blue blood for me, but when I ran across Bach's Brandenburg Concerto's 2,3,4 (not 1 and 5, don't like those), I liked it.

    Beethoven vs. Mozart

    Yeah that "Christian music" sucks so much: How uninspiring.

    None. Bach is the best. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ9qWpa2rIg&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EC1E4_imS0A&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDrLX7FXba4&feature=related

    Dimensional reduction

    I know it has nothing to do with entropy, but is there some sort of sub-topic word describing this behavior other then simple angular momentum?

    Dimensional reduction

    Like entropy tends towards chaos, why do star systems or galaxies tend to reduce their movement through the 3rd "Z" dimension even though all particles can freely move in all 3 dimensions? Flattening out. Is there some sort of word or phrase which describes this behavior? Is it possible...

    Divide by zero

    Lorentz transformation shows that at the speed of light you divide by zero. Photons travel at the speed of light, but it isn't matter, but should that matter, matter of fact? Does this line of thinking lead anywhere, or should I terminate this world-line?

    OK FINE, magnetism is explained away by relativity

    No comprende, but thanks for the effort.

    Plank time, Plank length

    Doesn't this digitize the Universe? Does 1 Plank Time + 1 Plank Time = 2 Plank time? Does 1 Plank length + 1 Plank length = 2 Plankies?

    OK FINE, magnetism is explained away by relativity

    http://psi.phys.wits.ac.za/teaching/Connell/phys284/2005/lecture-01/lecture_01/node13.html But what about induced current? My brain is full now, can't think. hehe: http://www.physics.uoguelph.ca/applets/Intro_physics/kisalev/java/indcur/index.html

    Is pauli exclusion principle a force

    Well I read that spin creates a magnetic momentum of an electron particle. I also read that magnetism can be explained away by special relativity although I really hate special relativity but I will concur with that conclusion. But if magnetism is explained away by special relativity then that...

    At what velocity.(sentence)

    I'm not in school. After further googling and pondering, I never realized how "relativistic" this line of thinking can be. D'oh I guess my next question then would be, "what would the world-line of one moving electron look like, in all frames of reference, at different velocities?" Would it...

    At what velocity.(sentence)

    At what velocity........(sentence) At what velocity do 2 parallel moving electrons (or protons) attractive magnetic field equal (and therefore cancel out) the electrostatic repulsion?

    Is pauli exclusion principle a force

    If it takes energy to squeeze matter, then its a force at work right? And what is spin? I can put the quantized nature of spin in the back of my mind for a moment, but what the heck does spin do?

    True to your intuitions or science?

    The math doesn't mean anything if I can't conceptualize it, which is why I dropped out at Partial Differential Quantum Buggery 300something. It was just no fun.

    Whats the holdup with Fusion Power?

    Is the released electromagnetic radiation totally random? Like white noise. Or do Hydrogen atoms only emit certain photons, or wavelengths. What happens when you combine an electromagnetic pulse of one half a wavelength of another electromagnetic pulse, would that create a photon?

    Double Slit experiment

    So the Heisenburg uncertainty principle isn't driving interference pattern? huh. Ok, the delayed choice experiment. In the REAL experiment, it looks like another entangled photon is created at the slit. If thats the case then wouldn't the deletion of the entangled photon kind of clash with...

    Whats the holdup with Fusion Power?

    You got temperature and/or pressure, and one simple atom to play with. What's the big deal?

    Double Slit experiment

    Double split creates a wave interference pattern. Closing up one slit creates a particle like pattern (all hitting one spot). Does the closing up of one slit (allowing the particle to go through in only one narrow spot) measure its position (by the powers of Heisenburg Uncertainty Principle)...

    A very simple question about general relativity

    In this experiment with 2 colony ships and a planet, I purposefully started and stopped the experiment with ShipA and ShipB in equal frames of reference so nobody could say, "Simultaneouty is why this or that happens." It doesnt matter when, how fast, or how slow Planet C receives a radio...

    A very simple question about general relativity

    "So, you see? No paradox. Ship B's captain thinks that A aged at 0.001 times his own rate as A moved towards him, while the Planet C observer thinks that B aged at 0.001 times A's rate after A decelerated, but it still makes sense for both of them to think that A will be 35.001000001 years old...
