it's not so much that it's difficult, it's that it's useless. what is the point of using gravity to determine precision up to the 25th decimal when the best detectors don't allow you to measure precisely beyond 5 decimals and when the order of calculations you used in qed mean that your theoretical prediction is only accurate to the 10th decimal.
it's like measuring a specific grain of sand and comparing to the size of the earth: maybe you can measure the grain with precision but that individual grain won't matter when sizing up a planet

I've been strolling around some Linkedin profiles of students who got their math or physics degree and most if not all of them are either unemployed or they're doing shit ass jobs (lab assistant at high school, the teacher helped, disabled kids assistant...), this is what you get for studying a subject without any specialization (mechanics, engineering or med).

Technically the only people who deserve anything are those who do manual labor and actually build civilization with their hands. Everyone else is just a parasite stealing from those people.

I work only with physics and math bachelor's. They're unemployed because those degree programs are not telling them the jobs they should be applying for. FYI if you have a BS in physics and math, work for the DoD as a civilian they eat you up and they'll pay for your masters/PhD. In addition look for jobs in the following focuses:

-Applied Statistics for physical things (if you're a physics student)
-Operations Research
-General Research Analyst

You have to look around a lot, because retards in HR and snobby mathematicians and physicists won't let you call yourself one without a PhD so all the BS jobs get filtered into these stupid obscurified names. Research Analyst especially is full of bullshit since it changes based on every company, some want fucking business majors for retards sake.

Anyway, look around on https://www.onetonline.org/ as well. Fucking job sites like glassdoor and indeed are shit for actually filtering by more obscure job titles. Onetonline is much better for finding job titles first (and skills needed/associated with them) and THEN job postings.

leading up to a nut your animal brain has been filling up with hormones to trigger arousal to a point of climax, dopamine is dropped and you're high off the release of stress.
it's all about the chemical triggers carried out unconsciously, like in extreme focus or fight/flight releases cortisol, you have an endorphin rush that builds up to orgasm and a refractory period (triggered by climax)
its similar to the action potential response, including the nut shiver some people get, which is multiple retriggering at that moment (and the point that pseudoscientists try to put their sex yoga in place) until the equivalent repolarization occurs. in that refractory period, if put in simple terms, your animal brain is returning to normal arousal, which when it overshoots gives a longer period where arousal is essentially shut down, even below your normal state of mind/"hornyness."
comparative animal biology goes over the importance of these sorts of hormone cascades during times of stress or arousal.

Back when I was into bullet hell shooters, I used to warm up by running the game at 2x speed for a while, and then start my actual run at the original speed. The bullets seemed slower than usual and it was almost kinda spooky how effective it was. So yeah you definitely could experience more "things per second" if your brain was faster.

This is why it’s difficult to swat a fly. They see things at a higher frame rate so experience time more slowly.

I'm pretty sure that basically is how it works. When I've used psychedelic drugs I've experienced time slow to a crawl because each passing moment comes cascading with signicantly more information than experiencing the world straight. Conversely, another phenomenon I've experienced while incredibly fatigued is that when I'm listening to music, even a song I know well, the song seems to be playing slightly faster and I suspect this is because the brain is processing far less info due to exhaustion.

I think that's what makes some professional athletes so good. Their reaction times are just a bit faster because their perception runs a bit faster, making the world around them seem slowe.r

Even if our universe worked purely by Newtonian mechanics rather than by general relativity, we would experience our surroundings in slow motion if we could run our brains faster.

People who claim to be able to visualize things- even simple and ubiquitous things- can't actually do so:
>In the 1970s, scientists showed that Americans were surprisingly bad at remembering visual details of pennies, one of the most common physical objects available for study. But a group of psychologists from the University of Los Angeles wondered if that weakness applied in today’s logo-saturated environment. So they put 85 students (only 11 percent of whom did not use Apple products regularly) in a logo-free room and asked them to draw the Apple logo and rate their confidence in the drawing on a scale of 1 to 10.

>The results were underwhelming. Only one participant of 85 drew the logo accurately, though seven other participants drew it without major errors. And when they were asked to pick the real logo out of a lineup of eight options, only 47 percent of participants passed the test. Though Apple users were slightly more confident in their ability to spot the real logo, they were no more confident than PC users when it came to actually drawing it.

>In another experiment, the team asked 26 undergrads (93 percent Apple users) to rate their confidence about how well they could recall the Apple logo before and after drawing it. Though they found no significant correlation in pre-drawing confidence and actual ability to draw the logo, the participants’ confidence in the logo they had drawn afterwards was strongly indicative of the logo’s accuracy (or lack thereof).

If people cannot even visualize the Apple logo, which is something simple and two-dimensional (so they should have no problem drawing it), how can they possibly visualize an actual apple, in three dimensions, with all its detail. Take a close look at an apple and you'll see it's incredibly complex. Computers struggle to render an apple, yet you think you can do so with your brain?

Not sure if grey is the right word. It just doesn't really *pop* with color. By default it has the same lack of color as the emptiness when you don't imagine anything.

So what are you actually doing when you're imagining? Is it open or closed? Does it appear in your visual field and overtake the black or is it on a separate "plane" in your head? I've read people give different accounts on this, I guess because it's too difficult for people to describe personal experiences in a way that's understandable. For me everything I visualize is in the back of my head. It doesn't actually show up in my visual field, so if I closed my eyes it's just black, but I still "see" it. No issues with colors or keeping it together. Hard to describe.

Your description of it being in the back of the head makes sense to me. But if I focus enough on related memories I can get it appear in my visual field too I guess?

I have read that some people can actually superimpose their imagination on an empty sheet of paper or something. One has to wonder how many people are misdiagnosed as schizo or something just because they describe a normal visualization ability that the psych doesn't know about.

My ex had synesthesia and whe could recall dates easier by memorising the combination of colours of the digits.
I dont think there is any concrete evidence of photographic memory.

So i assume the current theories on memory are correct and you recall everything from paradigms you make. If you never pay attention to a minor detail it will never register in the list of paradigms in order to recall it

Stop confusing phenotype and genotype.
For the same reasons you cannot call each of your 46 chromosomes independent life forms is the same reason why plasmids are not independent living forms, you fucking dumbass.

The same reason you cannot call a mitochondria an independent living form anymore. It is part of the structure of a cell.

here's an article with a bit more sophistication on the individuality(selfishness, living for the benefit of the cell or for self-replication) of DNA replicators and viral vehicles to explore the living-ness of viruses compared to other non-chromosomal DNA. transformation and plasmid-induced vehicles(conjugation) are inherently down to the cells consenting to pick up or send DNA so their mode of packaging is KEY to distinguishing an f plasmid from a virus in terms of movement and independence.

viruses are still not alive in a colloquial sense and fall in the quasi-living "certainly not rocks" camp.

Topologically speaking, how many holes does a man have? The mouth and nostrils seem to connect to the urethra and the anus. Ears and cornea appear independent. So three unique holes?

Not really, the anus is connected to the mouth and to the lungs.

Nostrils are connected to each other.

Eyes are tricky because if you consider the hole of the optic nerve then you'll have that the eyes are connected to the opening of the skull.

Urethra is not a hole but a cavity.
