Cosmic Engineering (Part 1) by BurtJordaan on October 19th, 2012, 7:26 am
I'm an engineering microbe (EM), living on a spinning ball, which is part of a bearing deep inside the cosmic machine. We call this ball Earth. To explore my machine, I would love to get off this ball in order to get a better view. I found that pretty difficult, maybe even impossible, so the only thing that seems feasible is to roam around on the surface of the ball.

Scientist microbes (SMs) tell me that I would need a pretty high speed to get off this ball, never mind getting to other parts of the ball bearing or the machine. I told them not to worry, we EMs can design rockets and if we can get it to burn for long time, we will easily reach the speed of light. Look here, I told my SM friend, back of the envelope calculations say that if I build a simple one "g" rocket engine that burns for 1 year, it will travel just faster than the speed of light.

Wait a minute, my friend said – you seem to forget Einstein’s special relativity that says things cannot reach the speed of lig...

Read this, Im looking for answers. by Melton_J_08 on December 22nd, 2010, 5:49 pm
choosing roads.... its like playing Rusain Rulet you have some chances of good and some of bad but unlike R.R. you can make A LOT of bad choices and still later find good ones. but what it comes down to is... do you have the balls to pull the triger.. if not you'll just fall down and be on the lowest road.. it may not always be the worst but it weighs on you more then the others. you just have to start walking you MUST start walking or you just always wish you could have done something. im implore you start walking. have the balls to pull the triger and hope for the best because chances are you were smart. you only loaded one bullet in the chamber. and now your chances are good no matter which road you fall, or rise to.

Quantum Gravity Part 2 by Obvious Leo on December 15th, 2012, 12:54 am
An expanding universe must expand in four dimensions, not three, because there can be no external frame of reference for time. This throws up some rather bewildering observer effects. The universe is expanding through its own temporal frame of reference. It is making its own time. This is the dimension in which entropy drives the expanding universe so we regard the universe as existing only at this temporal boundary. If we return to our balloon analogy then the skin of the balloon represents the time dimension and this is where the universe actually is. The three-dimensional space which the skin of the balloon encloses is the universe that we perceive. Therefore space is made by expanding time and has no independent existence. Although the universe is a finite entity it can have no spatial boundary, since it is everything that exists. However it must have a temporal boundary or reality could not proceed in an orderly fashion. The temporal boundary of the universe is the present quantum...

Read this, I want you to ask questions. by Melton_J_08 on December 22nd, 2010, 5:47 pm
everything is connected.. although no1 really knows this, even if they think they do. the understanding of such a complex thing is so hard that only thoses who know what is is then they will know how nothing is connected in anyother way.the bonding of such things is smaller then the things that make up atoms and yet larger then what is known as "Universe". but what know one can seem to understand is that its not with our minds that we will ever know a TRUE way to describe that feeling that is life. life.. everything has it and everything is within life. its not some being that is suprem or idealistic. its just that what it is called. Life. what no1 knows is that life cant be explained or taught to anyone else... its something for you and only you... its just what it is... life.

sometimes i wonder if everything is connected and yet still disconnected at the same time then is it possible to do what all the old ones the old stories of the past say is possible? can you really "communicate",...
