Space
    #1204304 - 01/09/03 03:03 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Is there an end to the amount of space between two touching fingers? If there is than that would have to be an edge of the universe, right? But if not space must be immeasurable, because you can't measure something that keeps going. The space just gets smaller and smaller, therefore the overall "distance" it covers must get larger and larger...because it keeps going. This also correlates to time, you can't measure it. Time lasts forever just as space so the only way we can come close to measuring it is just by watching the things around us (sun, earth). How is that any way of measuring time anyway? sure the earth seems to go around the sun on a regular schedule, but it can never be the EXACT same everytime, so that little bit of difference creates an immeasurable time distance.
I guess all we really do have is the NOW.

There's a theory about the smallest distance you can measure. It states that this distance is the Planck length. Beyond that quantum physics says that smooth spacetime breaks down into a froathing mess.

What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

What dreaming does is give us the fluidity to enter into other
worlds by destroying our sense of knowing this world.

Hence the Term
"You would need a black hole present if you were to try and measure below Plancks Length".

I learnt about quantum physics while tripping, and after tripping I discovered quantum physics. Reality is getting weird.

I was in no shower  :smirk:
The shower doesn't exist, it's wave function gave up and went away.

Space and Time are really illusions; two sides of the same thing, but illusion are real things. Space and Time can only be measured when they are relative to us. It is pointless to fathom them, because they, like an illusion, are nonexistant in any way that is not relative to the limits of our perception. Like an optical illusion, which is a distortion of the real thing. The distortion is caused by the limits of our own eye sight, and therefore is only relative to it. Relative illusions are existant to us, becuase they exist becuase of us. Matter is the same way.

Calc II... infinite series can have finite sums. Even though something can be broken down into smaller and smaller parts, the sum of those parts can be a non-infinite value. Lucky for us, otherwise we couldn't move...

Basic high school Geometry teaches the same thing, although most students fail to understand.
