How do I stop being a mathlet-mid and start to approach professional math-fag level?
For example, what do I need to read or learn in order to solve almost any solvable equation put in front of me (and how can I know that it is solvable)?
Real, imaginary, algebraic, transcendental, summation, product, etc., it doesn't matter, I really just want to get past the number crunching filter.
I want to master the methods used to solve equations, calculate numbers, and perform manipulations so a book on just one specific and broad area of mathematics doesn't help (yes, obviously I should start with algebra but I want to focus specifically on solving methods.) I want to get this computational shit out of the way before I dive deep into theory (or more likely, read theory and the practical methods at the same time). I don't want to be one of those guys who can teach a class on category theory but has forgotten how to do polynomial division.

Not only will they personally never live to see any of this without life extension, but the kind of exploration and settlement of distant bodies they dream about will require greatly expanding human lifespans, due to travel length.
Yet barely any of them seem interested in life extension, and just want more money spent on space.
What is wrong with these people?

He asks Einstein:

Einstein searches the net and asks all his smart friends...
After an hour he gives Indian $500...

I read somewhere recently that stimulant medication doesn't cause euphoria in people with ADD/ADHD because it works to correct their low dopamine levels and make them feel "normal". I was prescribed Vyvanse three years ago and not once has it ever made me feel normal. It makes me feel great. It's supposed to help me focus on schoolwork, but it's only ever helped me focus on creative tasks (i.e. music production). I now depend on it for motivation but that motivation is inevitably used on music, writing, drawing, instead of school. The prospect of changing/stopping medication scares me because I don't want to lose the ability to do what I love, but this medication is doing far more harm than good for my academic career.

I’ve heard that too and I think it’s bullshit, and I think ADHD is subjectively bullshit as well
Regardless I have a script for adderall that I use to do technical grunt work that I do to feed myself. I don’t need it, but having the energy to do what I do for hours and hours without it is just painful (intolerable past a few days) so I don’t bother
Stimulants are totally euphoric. They make you more empathetic, they make sex better, they give you the willpower to do shit that otherwise is not mentally stimulating. It’s a fucking amphetamine.
>doing far more harm/dependent
You need to be an adult and manage your meds and your emotions and your life. Stimulants are addictive, some people can’t handle that
I’ve built up a tolerance many time. Take some time off.
As soon as you start needing those meds just to get up in the morning and do normal shit, that’s a big red flag. You shouldn’t need stimulants to do normal things.
I only use when I know I’ll be working for a concentrated 6 hours minimum (sometimes I work for >24 hours straight).
You need to be disciplined in not using it just because you feel like it. Maybe you’re on first date and need to be a little extra social, but that’s a slippery slope.
Use tools for a difficult objective and that alone. Once you go beyond that, you’re asking for serious trouble

>> No.12789957

And if you read anything about “microdosing” your meds to reset your tolerance, basically what I’ve read is that does work while also seriously fucking some shit up with your neurons to the point of altering connections all the way to physical control of your hands and shit (versus just cognitive or whatever, Idk what the psychology terminology is).
Basically don’t do that, might risk permanent brain damage. I’m serious

Penrose wants something that can solve the Halting problem in the brain, which is impossible in current physics, he needs new physics, and new crazy physics of an unimaginable complexity, which cannot even be simulated, which is exactly what you need to reject the computational theory of mind.

What is synesthesia from a scientific perspective?

It's something that women have more often than men do, but also as a man I have it. And a quick rundown is that I have basic fundamental associations that most people do not have.

Most of you associate republican with red and democrat with blue, or you associate red with angry or love, and blue with sad, or things like that...

Synesthesia to me is when I have more associations that are seemingly arbitrary and inherit like I've always had them. Like I see 0 as black and 1 as white and A as red, and Saturday as yellow.

It is a rather unimpactful condition that effectively changes nothing for the most part although I kind of like it because it is interesting. I just have a memory of all of these associations and I pretty much can't forget them. Like I'll always be able to answer that A is red no matter when you ask me because I just remember it by default like how you know that republican is also red.

It's like that basically.

>everyone hates the job
>a chad starts working at the job

Again there was so much more stuff that happened like me getting into car wrecks and the entire fucking store sinking for no reason. It was crazy as shit and took place 3 hours in real time.

>How the fuck do you explain dreams.
When neurons are activated in the brain it produces the illusion of the world around you. If your neurons are being directed by your open eyes then you'll see a more accurate depiction of the world in front of you. But if you are on hallucinatory drugs (chemicals that poke around in your brain) or if you are in a dream, then something other than your eye leads your vision. For example, memories could be excited, or activated, as well as other areas of the brain that create your personality or even your imagination could be activated.

Dreams are typically "less realistic" than waking life because less areas in the brain are active typically.

The vast majority of the public does not understand dreams very much at all, they do not even know you dream even if you don't remember dreaming, most people think "I didn't dream today," but they most-likely did, the memory just gets wiped unless you wake up during REM cycles.

Anyways, there are things science still doesn't fully understand about dreams. I don't think there's an explanation for where the visuals in dreams come from but that could be wrong I don't know. Apparently the visual cortex is not active I think so as far as I know most scientists still don't know where the things you see in dreams are coming from. But that could be untrue maybe they do know it.

Mind is just a product of matter. So, stop thinking about religion because it's bad stuff for ya. Moral nihilism and consumerism is good because matter has no intrinsic value and you are matter.
I love science. We are just robots, and reality is really only balls and coils. My college teacher told me so. So brutally killing animals for ScIEnCE, abortion and infanticide are good things.

He, *chuckles*.

Yeah I cheated on every single one of my exams. I developed this method where in the days prior to any exam I would repeatedly review the topics at hand and solved related problems. When the day of the exam came, I could just write the answer down on the paper purely from things I remembered.

No I don't regret because if you can pass the exam by cheating the exam itself is a sham.

The media and science.

Should people with no knowledge of science be allowed to be writing all of these articles about it? Most "science" related articles you read online are not written by scientists. The scientists will not actually write or communicate with the public very often they simply talk to each other because the public is not capable of understanding their research usually.

These articles by the mass media outlets often contain completely incorrect "science" written by college students who don't understand what they are talking about at all.

Look at the way this real article talks about the big bang theory, "an explosion," and "13.8 billion years ago," (that's off by millions of years), "that it produced conditions for certain elements to develop," what? That's so vague because the author has no idea what they are talking about. "On the verge of being dramatically overturned." No it's not at all, the big bang only gets more and more evidence that it was real each passing day. Who's idea was it to let stupid people write the media articles that cause the public to become more stupid by reading it, thus infecting more people?

>"A scientist who claims the ***event*** never happened"
>"According to a ***study***"

All of these media people act, so similar...

They all use the same bullshit wording and completely content-less articles.

Of course I do believe in the freedom of the press but that means the freedom of the press to actually be smart sometimes as well, it looks like this pseudo-science is the only science allowed in the media these days which is not freedom of the press.

Physicists solve problems faster. and are better in doing Mental calculations on spot.

Mathematicians are slower, spend more time and lines to proof things with an often unnecessary and pedantic Rigour.

Physicist answers are more concise with fewer lines.
While mathematicians are too verbose and love to waste several pages to solve a problem that just need a few lines.

Physicists don't boss anything. They're glorified dumpster divers. They trail behind mathematicians, sifting through a mathematician's poop to find pieces of corn that fit some theory.
