I'm looking for some sort of ordering or classification of finite numbers.
Not infinite numbers, I know about ordinals but I find them kind of boring by themselves.

So any of these numbers would be strictly smaller than the first infinite ordinal.
For instance

  1. Trivial numbers like 1, 42, 4354353843745897394759347592347 that can easily notated using a number base
  2. Numbers that can be represented by scientific notation like 2^256, 10^100, etc...
  3. Using power tower (up arrow notation) like 2↑↑↑↑3, grahams number (g64)
  4. Chained arrow notation like 2 → 3 → 4 → 5 → 6
  5. Numbers that can not be notated explicitly but can be referenced by their fast growing function representation like TREE(3)

is this possible ???
6. Something that has to come after that, like numbers that are too large to be referenced by a function representation but can be deduced by other means like a process of describing a function like using self modifying code...

Will be positing about these notations and functions once I understand them well enough.

its more of a number spiral.

>-n + (n + 1) = -n + n

your problem was taking n as a constant but not assigning a value, its n0, n1, n2 per iteration.

you're trying to cancel infinity with negative infinity, which when you normally do it also gives you the result 1=0

There are some uncomputable functions, i.e. functions that grows faster than any Turing Machine can.
This means there are number of this sequence for which it is impossible to prove an upper bound, for any logical system.
If you assume that there is no super Turing machines in the physical world, then uncomputable functions are literally bigger than the largest quantity that can be constructed using physics.

The STEM meme has been floating around for so long now that the people who associate themselves with it have a track record of behavioral patterns to analyze. One common behavior of the typical STEMfag is to loudly proclaim that they're more intelligent than those people who study the humanities and the evidence they provide of this is always someone else's achievement, usually the achievement of someone like Issac Newton who was an extensive studier of non-STEM topics and was able to achieve insight by not being a closed minded know-it-all. What is it about the humanities which upsets STEMfags so much? Why are those cringing cowardly sissies so frightened by things that can't be directly quantified? It seems so lame.

>We combined enzyme discovery, enzyme engineering, and pathway and strain optimization to realize full opiate biosynthesis in yeast. The resulting opioid biosynthesis strains required expression of 21 (thebaine) and 23 (hydrocodone) enzyme activities from plants, mammals, bacteria, and yeast itself. This is a proof-of-principle, and major hurdles remain before optimization and scale up could be achieved.

The opioid crisis is about to get a lot worse and the potential here is limitless. Psilocybin, THC, cocaine, you fucking name it can all be made with this technology. Genetically modified yeast are going to be the Nagasaki and Hiroshima of the war on drugs.

If you progresivelly filter it out of water, you may end up with something, then you can find them better producing maxima... Maybe the solubility for opiate means you can mix it with filter and then have a division where solution doesnt end up back in the huge mix.

depends on where you started, if it was from the outside in I think it would be extremely painful as your nerve receptors receive signals that things are starting to go missing and want you to fix it. if it was from the inside out you would definitly be dead before it start to hurt too badly as we don't have next to any pain receptors internally

No. You would notice. We have atoms gone all the time. We're huge atom shredders. Colossal ones, honestly. lol At that level things are not really sensible. It's a delicate field and additions are just not a small thing by any means. The field of micro biology I guess this would fall into, I'm telling you you're not gonna feel a thing in this context. If you have atoms interacting, changes will certainly go on and they'll unsettle situations. If you're inserting something to remove atoms that's gonna change things. Adding and taking away atoms makes a difference. In practical terms, you won't think anything is going on. You will be the poster boy of unphasedness. lol Based.

Yup. Inside-out? Some blood vessel would burst, you'd bleed internally without pain until you lose consciousness and die. Then you'd slowly disappear, while everybody around you is wondering WTF is happening.

If it's outsiide-in? Then you'd get extremely hot as a burning sensation pours over your entire body. You'd probably also lose blood very quickly at this point, but not before excrutiating pain. Best case scenario, for some reason you don't lose blood, and you have a few seconds/minutes as a screaming skeletal muscle anatomy lesson.

>>How do you go about separating which juices are which and determining how they behave in the living brain?
It takes a really long time and a lot of work and most of the time you will be wrong or overly simplistic in your interpretation of what is going on. Serotonin for example was so named because they believed at first its primary function was modulating the consistency of blood serum.
For the specifics though, the way they tell which neurotransmitters affect what is by looking for ligand receptors at the synapse. The neurotransmitter works by being a 'key' for a specific molecular lock on the receiving cell, which initiates its action potential to propagate a shifting ion gradient through the dendrite. Then, they follow the trail of that neuron chain's axons until they get to something that's a muscle or sensory cluster (or backwards, to a specific region of the brain) and then end up saying something like 'these neurons are part of a pathway connecting this behavior/sensation to control from this brain region, modulated by this neurotransmitter.' If you noticed this is not much different than the room of blind men describing an elephant by grabbing different parts, grats, you've been paying attention.

Idea for fixing oil and water issues

Ok so we have this great technology called electrolysis. And we can use it too to purify water and create hydrogen. So I was watching a YouTube video and it said current estimates suggest turning 1% of the Sahara into a solar farm would produce enough power to power the globe. The only problem with that is they could only make power lines for neiboring countries and it would lose 10% of the power if some how we were able to get power cables all the way to Europe.

Well here's a fricken idea. Why don't we turn the Sahara into a solar farm, and use all of the energy to purify water supplies and turn it into a major exporter of hydrogen? It seems like the Sahara is an untapped resource for comparing the worlds oil crisis.. and additionally it was speculated that the energy absorbed by the solar panels would decrease the total temperature of the Sahara introducing more rain and possibly vegetation to an otherwise dry ecosystem.

Seems like an over all win win to me. What do yall think?

I have come up with a method. I just lack the technical know how.
You would need basic laser technology, but modified so that the laser gas is generated from the surrounding air with an oxygen concentrator. If you could manage to push enough energy through it, you could have a cutting laser. Now, there are ways to magnify the laser into more of a blade, but the issue is a laser just goes on and on, it doesnt stop. So you would need a way to stop it. I suggest a telescoping heat resistant pole that extends when activated, at the end of which is a circular beam trap. Instead of one laser, this design would call for a circle of beams around the inner pole which would make a wider blade. The inner pole could also likely be used to block. The lasers would only be for heat.

Cant be used for stabbing

But then, maybe it would be of help if one made the total definitive top of the layer on the outermost exposed edges to give those planes that are left exposed but flattened, would it help to make only that specific part as frictionless as possible?
Or would it be micro-optimization at that point?

Let's discuss how we could update and redesign our global infrastructure and cities, as well as building new ones, in order to better utilize the latent global energy available. Thermal/kinetic/wind/water/solar energy into electricity, and built into our infrastructure and cities. Can we utilize biotechnology? Nanotechnology?

>What would be the hardest parts of this process? It is too costly to redesign the old? Should we just build elsewhere? Maybe even in space or other worlds?

>What should these new infrastructure/city designs be like? Are there certain geometries or naturalistic patterns we can mimic to make our structures more efficient at weight bearing, flexibility, etc? Something out of Stark Trek or the Venus Project? The word "ecopotia" comes to mind here.

>Can it be done before we succumb to environmental collapse in the next 10-100 years?

So we're all familiar with the Moh's scale of mineral hardness, which is based on which minerals can scratch which. But I'm curious about the topic of mineral "toughness", which is based around how easily a given mineral will crack, chip, shatter, etc.

Apparently this is much harder to measure, however, and I can't find much info on this topic online. can anyone help me find a list of minerals / gemstones ranked by toughness, or something similar?
