Stephan Wolfram (the computational physics guy) and his team appear to have the groundwork to a fundamental theory of physics, basically based on graph operations. Special relativity and quantum mechanics can be derived from this model, mindbending stuff:

Yup. That's one simple cellular automata. It was the first, and it's what got Wolfram started on his CA research.

> this sounds similar to fractal mysticism to me,
Kinda, I haven't read OP's link yet, but Wolfram has been saying the same thing for about a decade about these systems. And while it's really fascinating how he can explain pretty much any phenomenon as automata, it's not at all surprising. Why? Because this:

>Start with a very basic seed pattern or equation or the like, apply some simple rules and (here's the kicker) iterate on that to infinity and viola! Out pops something infinitely complex and super cool looking.
Yes. You're describing how a lot of fractals are made. But it's also how many physics simulations are done. You're also kind of explaining what a 'turing machine' is.

Think of a "turing machine" as a fancy way of saying "something that can function as a computer."

Now, a "turing complete machine" is a turing machine which, if given enough memory and time, can calculate the state of any other turing machine.

Cellular Automata ARE turing complete machines. Anything that a computer can theoretically calculate, a CA can calculate.Because of this equality among turing complete machines, it's a bit weird that Wolfram places automata as the one model to rule them all.

At least that's the criticism of Wolfram that I read a long time ago. Personally, I think CA are awesome, and I'll definitely read OP's link later.

Iff Wolfram's turing machine can predict even one scientific breakthrough then it will be the most amazing thing in the world, and knowing that there are thousands of the world's top minds going after this prize, I shall sit here and wait patiently for that to happen.

I think these graphs are a model of our own way of thinking, in reverse. We started out by becoming self-aware in a chaotic environment of infinite complexity, so we invented things like philosophy and religion to try and make some sense out of it. Then we honed our understanding down to a scientific method. The way we make sense of things in general is to try and model it with abstraction. We try and break things down to their simplest form, because simple things are easier to understand. We took the top-down approach over millenia of careful observation, where these graphs and rules of Wolfram's theory are going in the other direction. Start out with something extremely simple, mix in something special (the theoretical key to the universe) and let the computers see if you were right. Sorry, I'm still trying to wrap my head around how this is going to lead to a reliable scientific breakthrough, but I'm not writing it off as impossible as of yet.

the thing with this fractal mysticism is that no scholastic authors would touch the 'schizo LSD theory' until after Nassim's paper won awards. It's the same shape that buckminster fuller discovered, and you could use almost any vector matrix to pull all this off. Some physicists are working with a shape called m0, or Mzero, which is really an infinite fractal of circles. obviously the simples solution is the best solution, but mainstream science won't touch that solution. gives them the heebie jeebies, and inside that shape as it moves we find almost all the shapes from every major religion, like jigsaw pieces.

that's too far out for them. they are desperately searching for any shape that can pull it off, but it's never going to be computationally efficient compared to the real thing, which is a platonic solid with 4 platonic vectors it can translate and recurse across. It's potential is practically limitless and will redefine math forever, but it's too religious for them.

if they fail to adopt it, then their science will fall behind compared to any faction that can put their ego aside long enough to use it. that faction will create a breakaway civilization in short order.

if i get an inflatable house tent and fill it with sea water is it gonna be insulating? could reinforce it with easy to source bamboo too. so if it insulates good its a cheap house.
does an inflatable filled with air insulate more then a nromal tent thats just fabric or some shit? i dunno.
i wanna buy a military style tent thats fabric and buy land and have a cheap de-constructable house while i build one out of wood or something is why im asking this and why i want to live in a tent. but i've camped before and inside the tent was cold as hell, with a sleeping bag. i don't camp in tents year round though so i don't know how sleeping in a tent is. i've slept in a tent at some years and it wasn't as cold as i remember but at that time of year it isn't cold at all i don't think.

I am an industrialist from the US. Our firm mainly belongs to the oil & gas industry. We are planning to start a similar firm in Toronto. Now we have an availability of forgings for our operations. We provide turnkey solutions, from forging and ring rolling to the finished machined parts. We are in a hunt for reliable dealers who have got Cutting-edge technology, Quality, and On-time delivery.

Not sure why someone would spam this here. I'm not sure what they hope to achieve by pretending to ask a bunch of stoners about machine parts.

So the link grabbers what I need but 2 problems
you have to be logged in to access the files, so jdownloader isnt grabbing what i need,
And im not sure what kind of format the stream is. My university built the media player for the lectures
they use a digital white board and stream the video from the white board on top of the lecture video; you watch both simultaneously or you can click to expand the video from either source. So im stumped on the format

With any luck you'll find a direct link to the video. It might not be your first hit and it might be hidden in such a way that it's impossible for a novice to find it this way. I've even seen a ('illegal' movie sharing) site take me to a rickroll using this method

Maybe the Addon "DownThemAll" will work better.

3 dimensions

so i know a lot of you have probably come upon this internal conflict before. Why is space in three dimensions? it might not make sense to some, " well 3s odd, shouldnt space be an even number?"

but lets think about this in more detail. the most primary counting system is Binary. You need two numbers to count and form numbers, 0 representing no value, and 1 representing a value. The counting system is formed by associating the two primary values to positions associated with the base of the counting system to a power.

so for a 2 digit counting system, 0 and 1, you form numbers based on the associated sequence 2^position, ie 2 primary units of counting, base 2.

so forming a number goes something like this 2^0 represents the first digit, ie 0 and 1 are represeted by "0" or "1", ok so what about representing 2 or 3?

well 2^1, would be your next expansion, so 2 would be 2^1(1) representing a value here, and 2^0(0) representing none; three would be 2^1(1) and 2^0(1) representing a value for both, ie 3="11" and 2="10"

ok so what does that have to do with space? well lets think about this, values are represented as 0 and 1, either having a value or none, and counting is formed with 2 ie "10" as its foundation. So what is space? well its representing a value past our notion to count and form values, ie representing a value of 1 past our notion to count Ie "11" or 3

so in reality 3 dimensional space shouldnt be associated as an odd number but having a value past our notion to count, ie existence.

So if we extend that, what is our notion of time? or how some mathematicians and physicists put it, the dimension after space? well obviously it doesnt represent a value, but follows the trend of the next heirarchy past our ability to count ie 2^2, or in binary 100, so what is time if not an extension of our notion to count but not yet maintaining a reprehensible value, ie a location in space?

thought this was interesting, please discuss
Henry Lightworth - Sun, 22 Mar 2020 22:46:54 EST dtSIBdev No.79814 Reply
better way of visualizing it
0 nothing
1 a value
10 counting
11 dimensions of space
100 time

the number 3 is actually the 4th value in a counting system, ie representing something

1 value
11 space

0 nothing
10 counting
100 time

Buy an mp5 gas mask and fitting 'expired' (but sealed) fp-5 (nato 40mm NBC filters)
if youre european itll cost you about 30€.

Have it and wear it when shit gets really bad.

I guess you could cut out the charcoal and make them useable for even more than 40hours. Way, WAY better than any disposable mask or even the superb half masks anon is suggesting.

And your only option at this point. Act quick, prices were already inflating a week ago
