Just read an article about how dinosaurs were neither warm nor cold blooded, the conclusion is “the debate continues”
oh. you mean “science”
after several studies we’ve concluded that we need more studies
we propose that we study studying so that we can better understand how studying is effected by studies
wait, but then the study would be subject to volunteer bias
we’ll have to study that
I’m just bummed cause I got super into some experiments about faster than light travel via space warp bubbles and the conclusion was: “Well, we don’t know that it won’t work. Yay?”
yeah. i feel the same about worm holes.
relativity makes me terribly uncomfortable.
why? because all the fundamental assumptions about our reality and how we perceive it get thrown out the window and it’s enough to cause vertigo?
yeah me too
There’s a link between physics and evolution
Like, we don’t perceive the world the way it actually is, we perceive it in a way that was evolutionarily beneficial
dude. I am obsessed with trying to perceive time as a spatial dimension
like a fourth spatial dimension
I just got dizzy
I kinda picture a given object stretched out over time simultaneously in every state over the course of it’s existence
You just said the thing!
That’s the leading theory of time, that it’s all laid out and exists… Simultaneously
For lack of a better word
but then you realize that there’s no real delineation between two objects except some space in between, and so if you really looked at things from outside time, you would see the whole universe as one four-dimensional whole
But then, why do we perceive a flow?
because how would it be physically possible to perceive the whole thing?
a thing cant know all of itself without being more than itself
But then why perceive part of it? Which is a terrible question, because it’s like asking why is anything anything?
Yeah, things just are.
