Hey there,

I have always been convinced that professional people visit these forums usually for a laugh even though I believe that most of the time they don't really have the time.

I just have one question, how will particle colliders and string theory improve my life? Seeing as billions are getting spent on experiments.

Maxwell's Demon is a flawed argument.
As soon as the demon is introduced to the chamber, it is no longer an isolated system, as the demon is adding energy to it. Entropy is only an issue in a closed system, as I understand it.

Or, I'm just talking out my butt...

No outside energy is introduced in Maxwell's experiment, only a door on a hinge that allows hot particles and cold particles to be separated into two homeostatic environments that should be one homeostatic environment, based on the 2nd law of thermodynamics. The reason why someone other than Maxwell called it a demon is because there seems to be some other force at work that causes the hot particles to move through the door and the cold particles to stay stationary.

if the higgs boson is found, we can make things mass-less, and you can have a hover-bike.

the applications are practically endless. no more weight restrictions.

Hi, welcome to ATS, an inspirational site to say the least. Our members tend to think outside the box which is a prime ingredient for innovations and breakthroughs. If everyone conformed to the same way of looking at things our world would turn static and your academic research would come to a halt. Methinks you and your colleagues may laugh and joke, but somewhere in the back of your minds you are skimming for new views to aid you and inspire you.

My father was a nuclear physicist and chemist, his name is on a plaque at the Curie Institute in Paris. I remember him complaining about how academic methods slowed down his ideas, one slow step at a time and repeat over and over. So, he built a lab at home, we had the best time saying "what if" as we tried this or that, blew up a few things, discovered a few things (he was also inventor of the year one time) until we came up with several viable products that has served our family well over the decades. He was creative to the extreme which evidently academia is now trying to eradicate with set rules of thought. I truly hope you allow yourself the freedom to imagine, to create, to dream and to go with it from time to time.

This site is fantastic for opening the mind to possibilities once you learn to navigate to the better threads and realize that many of the possibilities described in the posts use layman's terminology which you should be educated enough to interpret to the proper terms in your mind as you read them. Have fun here, let your ideas fly a little 'kay?

Here's a link you might enjoy to help make my point on the value of this site:

Best regards,

And you cannot even write basic English. LOL.

Although I've seen some questionable answers, I'm not going to argue one way or the other on whether the OP is truly who he/she says.

But in my experience, I will say that a vast majority of our finest scientific minds cannot write basic English to save their lives. That's why they usually employ people like me. They come up with the complicated theories and it's people like me who make sure that it's written up in a way that makes sense and can be understood by others.

So, I don't think that we should hold the lack of English skills against anyone. All that proves is that they lack English skills. It could be that they are not a native speaker or it could be that they were just too interested in their own field of expertise to be bothered by conquering perfect English grammar rules.

'I'm a scientist'
'String Theory is definitely correct.'

Scientists don't think like that. You may have a piece of paper that says you are a scientist but you certainly don't think like one.

Do you believe the size of the universe in infinite, or do you think it's a dodecahedron?

Is it true that in the "Double Slit" Experiment that the reason why, when being observed by recording equipment, the "beam of light" passing-through 2 slits becomes only 1 beam of light instead of 2, as when not being recorded?

Could the reason why be due to the photons hitting the recording equipment are quantum-entangled with the photons hitting the slits, and what going-in must equal-out to what passes through on the other side of the slits, and what's being recorded resulting in only one beam of light?

But when you take-away the recording equipment, you see with your eyes, two beams of light passing through?

Perhaps this is a feature of analog, which cannot be measured digitally. Has anyone tried an actual film camera? What happens when you record in-analog?

So, in-addition to analog circular-loops, you'd have digital-square or 45 degree angles, where the "difference between analog and digital being a scales-of-frequency resonated in Planck-Time. One domain can't be another domain, at the same-time, but is seen as "the same" when viewed in-analog, through the persistence-of-vision, through "Space-Time." It's an inversely-connected closed-system? Space (infinite) - Time (Finite) -or- Time (infinite) + Space (finite.) It might even make one think the universe was an infinite singularity, when you scale-it.

Go light-speed and time becomes infinite and space becomes a finite point, graduated-down or inverse-by-increments? That sounds toroidal, to me. You?

Seems connected, micro and macro, but how can a photon travel as a 45 degree angle through time, as well as a spiral in space? I suppose it would depend on how you look-at-it? I suppose, the closest distance between two-points in each "frame-of-time" would be a straight-line, which is efficient, can appear as an analog spiral, when each frame is viewed in-succession as a series or "path?"

Interesting, indeed.

One does not know everything... but that's why this board exists - to learn from one another. And if you are a scientist then maybe you can teach us all something by contributing to this "community". But the "scientific truth" on many subjects - especially string theory, quantum physics... and many new subjects is not that stable. What is true now might become false tomorrow.

What do you think of Dr. Ruggero Maria Santilli's Isodual Mathematics
and his treatment of anti-matter?

Have you ever looked into Hadronic Machanics?

I've gotta go for a couple hours, but, when I get back, I'll post it here, in the thread. Don't worry, I won't let it go without posting the solution - and, unlike the OP, I do know the solution.

Unless of course the OP, or someone else, figures it out in the meantime.

I hope you will find Helical Partical Waves theory very interesting at

Meanwhile, please validate this info scientifically (Statically):

2012: 31 4-day Meteorite Showers

Prime numbers are used for secret writings (cryptography) and God uses them in the Quran to hide secret messages behind the main text. God even gave us a chapter called The Key that has 7 verses, 29 words, and 139 letters. All are prime numbers and even 729139 and 139297 are primes too.

The Quran contains all past, present, and future knowledge and God has showed us a link to year 2012 (1433 Islamic year) in chapter #55 that has 31 repetitions of the verse:

فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ
Then which of the bounties of your Lord do you both (Man and Jinn) still belie?

at verse numbers:

13, 16, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 69, 71, 73, 75, 77

The sum of these verse numbers is 1433 which is a prime number too but more importantly as we are now in the Islamic year 1431 (2012), God could be pointing to the Islamic year 1433 (2012)?

And YES indeed God is pointing at an Islamic year because the chapter has exactly 355 words which is the same as the number of days in an Islamic year (lunar calendar)!

Each word maps to a day in the Islamic year 1433 and because the above verse has 4 words (“Fabiayee aalaee Rabbikumaa tukathibaan?”) and is repeated 31 times, then we should watch out for 31 events each lasting 4 days in 2012.

If the events are meteorite showers then it is easy to find the locations since each shower lasts 4 days, then it will sweep the Earth along a complete latitude 4 times while the Earth spins 4 times in 4 days.

So which latitudes? God provided us with 31 numbers that sit exactly in the middle of the range 0 to 90 suggesting that these are latitude numbers. They are the same numbers as the repeated verse numbers:

13˚ 16˚ 18˚ 21˚ 23˚ 25˚ 28˚ 30˚ 32˚ 34˚ 36˚ 38˚ 40˚ 42˚ 45˚ 47˚ 49˚ 51˚ 53˚ 55˚ 57˚ 59˚ 61˚ 63˚ 65˚ 67˚ 69˚ 71˚ 73˚ 75˚ 77˚
[from 0 to 13 = from 77 to 90]

The first event of latitude 13˚ will happen on the 44th day of the Islamic year 1433 which maps to 2012-01-07 and the last event will happen on the 349th day of 1433AH which maps to 2012-Nov-07.

And God knows best and controls everything in real time.

Thanks for taking the time to post on ATS, I have only one question which
really Interests me.

When do you think the Quantum Processor will arrive?

an how do you see it changing the world?

Thank you

Hello and welcome and i also have a question for you regarding the LHC as news reporters do not seam to be giving any real information on it.
From what i could work out or piece together is that it will be firing atoms at close to the speed of light into another atom [i now its kind of layman explanation]have the atom got enough speed yet and is the main reason for this experiment to produce dark matter and is it possible [you mentioned black holes hence why i ask]that there maybe the formation of theoretical white holes?

Hands-up bit of shot from the hip. Could just be the text editor. Will not hold the grammar against people in the future. My bad.

In terms of this poster, it's one more in a recent chain of these. Attention-seeking in my view, from fake people.

Your opinion does not really count. It's thoughts that count here, everywhere perhaps.

Opinions can be based on thought, but for the opinion to count, there must be some disclosed thought behind it.

"I think this is wrong because..."
Get the idea?

The best teacher I ever had was one who said "Never ask me how do do something".
That was metal work class.

Tell him you had some thoughts about the problem, and he'd have all the time in the world to teach.

Why do I read these boards? Simply: they're hilarious. There are so many astounding misunderstandings of such basic things... I semi-regularly read several of the sub forums just to see how the newest poster has strung together some technobabbly words to make some ridiculous claim. It's fascinating.

Thank you so much (sarcasm) for totally insulting the ATS boards. As far as I am concerned, you need to learn how to (put things in another way).

ATS members sometimes bring strange things to the discussion board, but to ridicule them , is an insult to our board.

Just don't go knocking on someones door and start to criticize their front yard before you get to know the person.

As far as your views on string theory they are quite fascinating to me . What makes this universe tick? What is the basic element that effects all happenings. Your string theory , is a mind blowing concept.

I am a scientist.

What makes me call shenanigans on this is the fact that, not once have you cited a single piece of scholarly evidence to support any of your statements. I would assume that you would have pages upon pages of bookmarks for reference on your computer. In fact, the only cite you ever give is:

Even wikipedia knows it's wrong!

However, a few posts later you admit:

Ehh, wikipedia does not always have the most careful explanations of stuff like this. And all of the string theorists I know, at any rate, have long since quit trying to edit wikipedia out of annoyance at other people constantly adding crazy things to their articles .

Maybe it's just me, but have such intelligent debates and not citing a single thing, throws up a huge red flag.
