The possibilities with the utilization of nanotechnology (or the ability to manipulate fundamental units of matter however we wish) are immense, and just plain awesome to think about (increased medical ability/health and life-expectancy improvements, transportation, national or international infrastructure, spacecraft materials utilization, etc., etc.). smile

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Woah Nanomechanics man. Fascinates me. When you think well about it, all this über small scale research will lead to huge stuff because one and the other are working hand in hand. The smaller you go makes you think wider as for what Atoms, Neutrons and all these millions of crazy different cells and elements are constructed upon. The smaller, the bigger. VERY interesting one bro dude Creaturesque yo.

And MAAAN BADASS SOLAR CAPTOR this is. H3LL huge, 460 feet damn. Love how they've put them all on the ground in the field. And I'm sure their position was studied by the engineers. RAD!!!

I'll go Sun Bath on this soon. Need a tan. lol

These have always made me wonder WTF they were and how/who/when they were made. Pretty impressive.

^^ Wow, very cool. I loved looking at all of the drawings featured throughout the text. Fascinating. I bookmarked it so I can watch the full video later.


Thought this was really fascinating:

Quantum researchers Close in on dream vacancy: http://phys.org/news/2014-02-quantum-vacancy.html

Delving into the atomic structures of life, and trying to form a new technological grid within it....the new frontier of the microcosm.

Another article I've read this morning, which I thought interesting:

After 400 years, mathematicians find a new class of solid shapes: http://phys.org/news/2014-02-years-math … solid.html

I remember absolutely hating geometry in middle/high school, but I'm thinking that now I could truly delve into this particular science if I put in the effort. It's a shame how the education system turns so many young minds off of very, very important subjects. The education system does not have the same negative effect on everyone, but it does, I firmly believe, on many. IMO, we need to re-design the system so that young minds are in charge of their own internal and intellectual growth, development, and expansion. Showing them the door, and letting them walk through with their own cultivated intention and fascination with their studies. As of now, too many high school graduates are very poorly educated by even very elementary standards of measurement (which is my basic contention against the system of "education" these days) and we're falling behind in the international arena. Kids need their minds in a flame in order to develop their full critical thinking abilities properly. Let them be fascinated, intrigued, and overwhelmed with the amazing, awe-inspiring world on their own will, without shoving your tests, quizzes, grades, and bias upon them. After kindergarten and up until middle-school, provide them a safe, healthy environment to grow, show them how to think (and not merely 'what'), and let them figure out the rest.

I know all of that this is a vague rant (my apologies! tongue ), but man, if I wanted to write a very precise and detailed essay on this particular topic, I could easily do so in an hour or two.

Anywho...

Read the article, yet didn't get a chance to read Einstein's actual manuscript. From a lot of the conversations I've read with Einstein, you could tell he was a very spiritual man, and held tightly on to the idea of a "creator". Whether it was the Judeo-Christian God, or the God of Spinoza. Anytime you have a serious discussion about the idea of God with a religious person and have the nerve to bring science into the mix, they always just say "Einstein believed in God" and it's just soo irritating.

Agreed. It is VERY irritating. As far as I can tell, from the essays and documented letters of his that I have read, he did not at all believe in a personal, anthropomorphic or supernatural deity. It was certainly Spinoza's god, as he states this directly in one his essays (No, I can't remember which one at the moment -- I'd have to look it up in my copy of "Ideas & Opinions"). But really, "Einstein believed in God" is such a poor argument to make in the first place.

I've never really read anything written by Einstein himself. More just interviews, and stuff mentioned in books by Hawking and Kaku. Anything worth recommending?
