Why all the fuss over carbon-based life? Q: Can resonance be used to destroy anything? Why is it so counter intuitive? What’s so special about the center of mass? Q: Why can’t we see the lunar landers from the Apollo missions with the Hubble (or any other) telescope? Why is there one-to-one correspondence between laws of conservation and symmetries? \(a < 0\)) to a really, really large positive number and stay really, really large and positive. Q: How hard would it be to make a list of products of primes that could beat public key encryption? Where does the energy and matter for the new universes come from? Division of a number by infinity is somewhat intuitive, but there are a couple of subtleties that you need to be aware of. Q: What would you experience if you were going the speed of light? Q: How do I count the number of ways of picking/choosing/taking k items from a list/group/set of n items when order does/doesn’t matter? If time were to speed up, slow down, or stop, what would you experience? Q: Since the real-world does all kinds of crazy calculations in no time, can we use physics to calculate stuff? Are atoms, people, stars, and everything else getting bigger too? Doesn’t one have to be faster? Q: In the NEC “faster than light” experiment, did they really make something go faster than light? What’s the deal with Benford’s Law? Q: Are some number patterns more or less likely? Q: Why does lightning flash, but thunder rolls? We have already determined that infinity divided by two results in a modulo of zero. Q: If you could see through the Earth, how big would Australia look from the other side? And who decided what you can and cannot do ? Q: Why does oxygen necessarily indicate the presence of life? All real numbers are hyperreal numbers, and all hyperreal numbers are surreal numbers. Likewise, you can add a negative number (i.e. Q: Do virtual particles violate the laws that energy can be created or destroyed? Well, there are large X values that make “sqrt(2) * X” rational, but there are also large X values that make it irrational. What is the explanation for this? Video: What your Spiritual Guru Never Told you about Quantum Mechanics. Q: If accelerating charges radiate, and everything is full of charges, then why don’t I radiate every time I move? Q: If light is a wave, then what’s doing the waving? Is astrology reasonable or plausable? Q: Do the past and future exist? Q: Why are the days still longer than nights, until a few days after the fall equinox? Q: What is the Planck length? Q: The information contained in a big system isn’t the same as the amount of information in its parts. Although infinity is larger than any number in existence, it is not a real number. Q: What does it mean for light to be stopped or stored? Don’t living things reverse entropy? About infinity-infinity my personal opinion is that it is undefined if we have to sets. 1/2 of infinity is still infinity, so infinity divided by infinity plus one should equal one if infinity were too be odd. A line, however, will extend infinitely in either direction. Q: What is “spin” in particle physics?

is defined as the “value” such that given any number, x, we always have x < . Infinity is a hyperreal and surreal number, but not a real number. Does it take energy to move an electric field? Q: What is going on in a nuclear reactor, and what happens during a meltdown? Q: Aren’t physicists just doing experiments to confirm their theories? Q: Is it possible to beat the laws of physics?

How do you calculate the size of a rainbow? Here is one way to think of this idea that some infinities are larger than others. INFINITY is not a real finite number either, so the concept of evenness or oddness regarding infinity is not logical in arithmetic. Video Examples: Adding Past Infinity Infinity/2=infinity, and with this there is a modulo of zero. So, a number that isn’t too large divided an increasingly large number is an increasingly small number. Q: Are shadows 2-dimensional? Q: What would the universe be like with additional temporal dimensions? Q: How good is the Enigma code system compared to today’s publicly available cryptography systems? Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Wouldn’t God’s observation of the location of the photon collapse its probability wave function? What’s the point? Q: How can photons have energy and momentum, but no mass? Now, to your specific questions. What is the process of developing a picture of a higher dimensional object? In geometry, a line segment has two distinct endpoints – points A and B. Q: Why haven’t we discovered Earth-like planets yet? Q: Could God have existed forever? If we have a set including all of the even numbers it is simply impossible to add another even number. Q: Given two points on the globe, how do you figure out the direction and distance to each other? Q: Why isn’t the shortest day of the year also the day with the earliest sunset? Q: Why is hitting water from a great height like hitting concrete? But this contradicts the initial assumption that we could list out all the numbers in the interval \( \left(0,1\right) \). Q: How plausible is it that the laws of physics may actually function differently in other parts of the universe? You also ask what is “sqrt(-1) + infinity”.

Q: Why is it that photographs of wire mesh things, like window screens and grates, have waves in them? The “not-a-number-ness” of infinity means that subtracting it from itself doesn’t make sense, or at the very least, doesn’t have a definitive result. Q: Why is the area of a circle equal to πR. Q: If Earth was flat, would there be a horizon? It is just the same thing we subtract from itself. Is the Sun being at the “center” (i.e. What about in base 1? Q: Is there a formula to find the Nth term in the Fibonacci sequence? A journey into the foundations of math. For example, a calculator will show that 2/3 equals 0.6666, but the row of sixes in the number 0.6666 doesn’t end after four digits. Why use approximations when the exact answer is known? Post was not sent - check your email addresses! Limits and calculus are awesome, and were it not for Aristotelian view on infinity, zero, vacuum, Europe would have embraced the figure “0” and would have started working with “infinities” long before it actually did.

Q: According to the Many Worlds Interpretation, every event creates new universes. What is the difference between batteries with the same voltage, but different shapes or sizes?

Do primes follow a pattern?

Was hoping to find this answer: Are there roughly twice as many integers as there are even integers? Q: What is energy?

And how did they measure it? Q: If hot air rises, why is it generally colder at higher elevations? Q: If you could drill a tunnel through the whole planet and then jumped down this tunnel, how would you fall?

Q: How do we know that atomic clocks are accurate? A really, really large number divided by a number that isn’t too large is still a really, really large number.

Q: Will there always be things that will not or cannot be known? Q: Does opening a refrigerator cool down the room? This is a fairly dry and technical way to think of this and your calculus problems will probably never use this stuff, but it is a nice way of looking at this. Q: What is the “False Vacuum” and are we living in it? Q: Before you open the box, isn’t Schrödinger’s cat alive or dead, not alive and dead? Q: Is quantum randomness ever large enough to be noticed? Q: If the world were to stop spinning, would the people and everything on it be considered ‘lighter’ or ‘heavier’? You should buy it. Q: Why is the integral/antiderivative the area under a function?

Q: What is the probability that two randomly chosen people will have been born on the same day? If we can’t get exact solutions, then how do we know when our approximate solutions are any good? Is there a limit to how much information can be compressed? Are some betting schemes better than others? For example, the sequence of numbers -- 1, 2, 3 and so on -- extends infinitely. Q: Why does energy have to be positive (and real)? Based in western New York, Amy Harris began writing for Demand Media and Great Lakes Brewing News in 2010. Q: If God were all-seeing and all-knowing, the double-slit experiment wouldn’t work, would it?
