as long as einsteins right, noone will find us because theyre too slow
can someone help me, theres this thing of duality of waves and particles, right? so waves can travel at lightspeed and even 100 times faster in modern experiments. but if there is this duality that nothing really can be considered either a particle OR a wave because its both, than why particles cant travel at lightspeed?
I totally beleive that there is life beyond earth
....but to me this video looks like a video taken looking through a high powered micoscope. they could be looking at anything
so far so good, but if its possible for humans (obviously) to accelerate light (particles) so it reaches light speed than it also should theoretically be possible to accelarte a space shuttle to light speed.
what i wanna ask is, if a particle doesnt need infinite amounts of energy to reach lightspeed, why does a fat ass particle shaped like a white cone with a black nose and small white wings require INFINITE AMOUNTS OF ENERGY (something that obviously cant be provided)? i could understand that it should require more energy than the sun emits in one year but infinite?
1. i agree with you that they wont be dumb enough to let them be caught on some fucked up tape in case they dont want to
2. it could be possible, that theyre only looking at us like in a universal zoo. maybe its the newest shit on THSAHDSKJKLRJ230000, to observe other cultures on other planets
3. if a civilisation makes it to this point (always taking ours as example) to travel at lightspeed+X, they normally would have to be peacefull, because otherwise they killed themselves already and be intelligent enough to know that they cant bring us theyre technology because we would abuse it
but altogether i dont think we have ever been visited, maybe it was some kind of orbiter, satellite that was send to us, but no "people"
just to ask, hardcore christian?
there are something like 10^25 stars to be observed from the earth, each of them theoretically ofering the possibility of life just like our solar system does.
so how can someone even think that we are the only form of life in the whole universe?
well you can turn it around. a standard solar system like ours (the only one whose planets we can really observe) provides the possibility of life.
so its as probable that the next solar system has life as ours. and even if chances that a solar system could provide life are like 1:1,000,000,000,000, there would be still something like 1,000,000,000,000,000 solar systems out there with planets that could provide life. and even then, lets say, the chances are 1:1,000,000 that those solar systems actually contain life, we still could count on more than 1,000,000,000 other forms of life.
i dont say that youre an idiot for having your point, but to me its just impossible that this HUGE UNIVERSE contains nothing but us. and even if some christian comes up to me and tell me that god made the universe and only set life on earth, i would have to ask, why god was such a moron to build more than 10^25 empty solar systems around this little ass planet?
well i assumed that 1:1,000,000 is the probability of actual life if the solar system itself (and its planets) are something what we call life friendly (something i guessed 1:1,000,000,000,000). planets in size of something like the earth, good distance from the sun and so on. what is not included, is that life could emerge from various surroundings. maybe somewhere else they breathe methan and consist of something else than carbonhydrogens...
i know what you mean and i dont want you to think like i do, i know that theyre out there, but i dont "feel" them or whatever. theyre too far away to reach us and we can never reach them. these "fold the universe" things are pretty much impossible, you know you have to set mass/energy somewhere to give the universe a bump. the amount of energy to fold it that way to reach alpha centauri in one hour are unbelievable and - i fear impossible to provide.
