Tychos model

Knowing that galaxies are actually solar systems, would it not be appropriate to study the relationship of the Milky Way, Andromeda, the satellite "galaxies" that surround the Milky Way and the satellites of Andromeda ? Because of the scalar recursion that comprises a universe of motion, the planets...

Re: A hidden gem...

I heard this gem of a conversation while switching channels on the TV, i've not even watched any of the film and probably never will, because that film is... I love that film... it's SOOOOO BAD, it actually crosses a unit boundary, inverts, and becomes GOOD! :D It's right up there with Tremors , an...

Re: Western Education

I went to a private, Catholic school (priests and nuns) and learned a great deal. But I suspect that is a generational difference... we WANTED to be successful in life and willfully took the initiative to learn what we could, to find out how we could be successful. I recently heard a interesting and...

Re: Stephen Hawking

The answer is that ((they)) have always wanted life to be more complex than it really is -- to keep those under its spell in a state of perpetual doubt, authoritarian dependence, and self loathing. A powerful combination to maintain control over others they seek to leech life from. They want to rep...

Re: Reboot of The Tomorrow People

But I would still prefer to have a book in a bookshelf which I could read whenever I felt like it than not having it at all. For example, I hated Latin in school but I am interested in the language now. Interests come and go. And these days, in the age of informational regurgitation, good unique co...

Uncommon Sense

I had a Eureka** moment in the shower the other night. I realized how a person's worldview is influenced by the source of "information input." When I was a kid, it was 95% reading and 5% B&W video (broadcast TV--3 channels), a few hours a week. Now it is 99% video. **Greek for "this bathwater is too...

Re: The Outer Limits (1995)

Have you seen the original series, from 1963-1964? The most unsettling show I've EVER seen is from that series, "Wolf 359" (series 2, episode 8; a reference they used in ST-TNG with the Borg). Just thinking about it again gives me goosebumps. It is a classic "suspense" film, which means it is NOT "a...

Re: Honour and Common Sense

That Dilbert cartoon is a riot... but I'll bet nobody "gets it," because you need common sense! One of the things people don't connect is that honesty is derived from honor . One can never expect a dishonorable person to ever deal fairly or honestly--which explains our system of commerce. However, t...

Honour and Common Sense

Having been around for 61% a century now, I have watched the "fall of mankind" as he descended downward into self-centered mercantilism. In order to do this, he sacrificed two very important concepts of old: honor and common sense . This is required for the "suspension of disbelief" that marketing r...

What kind of space weapon kills bodies but not clothes?

Re: Planetary Electric Discharge

Anyway, I seem to remember part of the thesis was that at one time Saturn was so close that electric discharges were generated between it and earth. AND, the massive Grand Canyon (USA/Arizona) is one such remnant of a discharge. Common erosion position fails in that no debris remains, and the path ...

Something that occurred to me was that there are two types of volcanic rock (southern Utah is full of volcanic rocks): stony and iron. The stony ones tend to be light with a light, small bubbled surface. The iron ones are heavy with large bubbles in them. Curiously, asteroids/meteors come in two typ...
