    Many Worlds + Anthropic Principle

    This might be interpreted by some to border on the fringes on pseudo-science, but I feel logic dictates that conclusion must be one of many possibilities according to the theories. Has anyone ever considered that the many worlds interpretation combined with the anthropic principle has some...

    Observational data and wavefunction collapse

    Okay, let me begin by saying that I do NOT have a good foundation in quantum mechanics, but I have been completely captivated by the wavefunction collapse. I have looked over many explanations of the double-slit experiment over the course of a few months, and I cannot find that one single...

    Photon-observer meaningless?

    I am confused as to why a photon's view is such a meaningless concept when we can obviously measure the speed of the photon from our own reference frame. We see the photon moving through spacetime, so why can't we theorize on how the photon sees us? Is there is flaw in relativity? It seems...

    C according to what reference frame?

    This question may be nonsensical, but I have to ask. I'm a noob to relativity so please bear with me. All observers measure the same speed of light, correct? We also know that there is no favored frame of reference. So... what is to stop an object from accelerating to 0.95c, taking a...

    Close to C orbit around Earth and how time would be affected

    There is a nuance of special relativity that I cannot seem to grasp. This may be very similar to the twin paradox, so I am trying to find out what the critical points are. If I hop into my spaceship and orbit Earth at 0.995C for, say, 100 years, I will see Earth's clock progress at an...

    Magnetic Fields

    I've been digging around on the internet for information about magnets. I've found some interesting thing like the inverse square law of intensity, but I've noticed the Lorentz equations tend to deal mostly with charged particles. I'm really looking for information about the net field's...

    Inverse square law and magnetic fields

    Ok this may be a silly question, but I have trouble grasping the function of the inverse square law and how it relates to the intensity of a magnetic field. It seems to me that if we take the same calculations of I2 = (I1 * D1^2) / D2^2 we come up with different real world answers based on...
