Yet is that the most rational, reasonable, and effective way of doing things?
in this movie, a scientist gets ahold of a virus and travels around the world spreading it, around 5 billion people end up dying, the humans that survived were forced to go underground
do you think something like this is possible in real life? any thoughts or information are welcome

A disease from ye ancient times that came and went multiple times and never took more than a fraction of the population with it. It fucking sucked I'm sure, but it wasn't doomsday.
Not possible, unless they stop being based on DNA.
Dare to dream!
Guess what, viruses that kill evolve to become less virulent nearly everytime
It's a shitty shitty evolutionary strategy and is nearly always due to a virus crossing a species border and sorts itself out later
Okay so this is bugging me
1 ÷ 3 = .333- (one third)
.333- × 3 = .999
3/3rds is less than one according to our math?
A simple explanation is that infinity does not exist so you'll never have an actual circle.
Perfect troll explanation.
Thanks for quoting everyone in the thread. That was very helpful and not annoying at all.
i hope there was a point to this post
Why is dividing by a fraction the same as multiplying by the reciprocal of that fraction?
Because a fraction is just a division problem.
because that is literally the definition of division.
Try reading A Course in Pure Mathematics by G. H. Hardy.
we don't really know. it just so happens that every time we try, those two results agree, so attempts at its falsification have so far failed 100%.

My algebra is rusty and I have a test on Monday. I know the material by the back of my hand but I'm worried I'll fuck up calculating something. What are some internet applications that will test the full extent of my algebraic abilities?
Cant you get old Tests from recent years from your math Department? Then do 2-3 full Tests until monday
the tests are on the material tho. I just want to get better at algebra dealing with nested fractions/radicals fractional powers and the like. Logarithms aren't going to show up.
What do you mean logarithms are going to show up
the class is on logarithmic algebra
They are a unit we're getting to later. Yeah, I fucked around too long and my math curriculum was considered out of date, so I had to go back to senior level nightschool
Why would antidepressant work amazingly for a few months and then stop and then never work again ever on repeated attempts
the brain gets tricked into releasing chemicals but you gain a tolerance and then your body goes wtf is this shit and refuses to accept it as proper stimulation to release the chemicals
i guess what im saying is anti depresants are not a long term solution. its for people who lost a family member. not people who dont like their job or spouse or want a spouse but cant get one. you will go through most of your options in pill form then be forced to accept you dont like your life. because the pills will stop working. maybe you have unrealistic expectations. if your a 2 (be honest) your not marrying a 7 and if you do its only because you have money. maybe you dont have prospects because there is a shitty labor market in your area and you dont have the ability to search for shit because you work all week. if your a woman maybe all that crap they feed you in the msms and hollywood is lies and soulmates arent real and no rich guy is ever going to settle for you because he can get a 10 that also wont love him but will give him access to her holes
Fuck man that's me 6 years after i stopped taking it. Wish i was as lucky as you everything is as colourless as it was the first day I took fluoxetine
Simple answer: the brain maintains homeostasis. It "readjusts" itself to match its previous baseline.
Basically, the brain needs to maintain certain levels of activation of neurons and can do this by increasing (upregulating) or decreasing (downregulating) the number of receptors in the synapse. The most common antidepressants, SSRIs increase the amount of serotonin in the synapse thus increasing the chance of binding to post synaptic serotonin receptors. This works great to increase activation in the short term, but the brain eventually compensates by down regulating postsynaptic receptors so that the activation is about the same as it was with normal levels of serotonin.
This is why antidepressants are a bandaid, not a solution. This is also why anyone who takes antidepressants at the recommendation of their psychiatrist becomes so dependent on them. When you get off the medication, levels of serotonin in the synapse decrease while there are fewer postsynaptic receptors from the downregulation caused by the SSRI. This means that signaling is at an all time low, and you end up more depressed than you were before you started taking SSRIs. Eventually it returns to baseline via upregulation of receptors, but in the meantime you're so depressed that you just start taking medication again, and it becomes an endless cycle.
George Bush -"Inherited" the relation to the vatican from his father -G. B. Senior would maintain a similar relation to various popes previously just like his father and a relation with one pope is one of the reasons for developing increasing nomadic traits (he had a relation to at least one pope of which one was Karol Wojtyla [JP2]) of the Bush family, one of the reasons also was 9/11 and Afghanistan, the feeling of becoming more and more endangered by the society and human beings in general has made the family more and more restless and currently the Bushs aren't able to maintain a stable household including being able to stay longer at one place for longer than a year which also includes moving fromone piece of land to another while turning the previous one to a place full of mess which wouldn't be cleaned up afterwards -expresses Marios hate towards the middle east openly and both share homosexual or at least homoerotic feelings towards men from western africa, while Mario rather would hide his hate towards middle eastern men while steadily searching for contact with these and wishing to be able to rape one, while every time feeling like being "submissive" and "used" constantly, he tries to influence the men he could meet into a homoerotic situation as return for "using and controlling him on purpose" and attempts suggesting animation of homosexual activities, he projects his fears onto other men which would have dark hair and at least remotely trained bodies, generally (George Bush believes the same but with a focus on men of african descendance) -Bush would disagree with Marios open appraisal of middle eastern men, this is connected to his "inherited" antijudaism, antisemitism and genuine xenophobia while secretely sexually admiring made up ideal model figures of these and comparing these to "nordic men" while lookingfor things the one would lack which the other one would have, he would
thing he would have found the most of peace in, next to homosexual activities and "murdering a child" and the latter would be one of the points in his life which would have enforced the developement of a distorted self-perception in Mario and Mareko gaining definition; In a situation where he would have tried to molest a boy sexually through something he would define as sole provocation and according to his opinion nothing that could be counted as factual molestation, his victim would have rejected him which triggered a further and longer lasting attempt of convincing the boy of not having wanted to commit anything homosexual, as the boy wouldn't want to listen to him and haven't given him any trait of accepting his explanations, he would have to want to kill the boy in order to prevent him telling other people what Mario would have attempted doing and exposing him as a child molester and a homosexual. He killed the boy while falling into a trance-like condition which would act as a medium for "Mareko"s "presence" later on, convincing himself of not having done anything at all and simultaneously that the boy would have provoked him through his ignorance, he would have stand under the influence of alcohol but as he would claim it to be his "medicine" and a default part of his personality whose usage would have started as a child and which he wouldn't remark as anything special or a possible reason for him having killed and molested the child, he sometimes completely denies to consume alcohol at all if its being mentioned in an even slightly negative context of any relation; Mario believes that the child would have misunderstood him and that in case it would expose him as a child molester it wouldn't be right because according to his own opinion he only tried to provoke the boy into a homosexual act and that would be something completely different, as he says. As he would fear being judged wrongly
by other people, he would make the fact of him having grown up in a nearly illiterate household and environment which he would project on the area the committed the murder in (although it only would remotely resemble this factor) being responsible for a potentially wrong judgement and he believes it to be the societys fault that he had to kill the boy in order to protect himself. Mario sees his second name "Jorge" basically as the reason for the "birth" of Mareko, he sees it as something opposing his basic character "Mario" which he would consider feminine, weak (he believes weakness to be a feminine trait which his mother would be responsible for, according to him) and submissive towards other men and Mario believes it to be something supernatural and given by destiny, as through being part of the episcopal organ in Argentina he would have been aware of strange languages like Polish, as Poland would be an important country for the Jesuits and the Vatican, he would have become aware of the polish formulation "Mario", which would be the name of "Mary", "Maria", as reffering to the mother of Jesus Christ, spoken in the second person singular, which would have be to be accentuated differently than his forename which would be spoken by accentuating the first vowel. Mario became obsessed with the phenomenon he would have made up that would consist of other people calling him by his name by accentuating the second vowel in "Mario" which would be equal to the pronounciation of the polish formulation - he never has told anybody about himself having noticed these parallels, yet he would suspect other people of being aware of his name and the polish formulation being similar and trying to insult him indirectly by spelling his name differently and calling him a "woman" - what Mario not realizes is the fact that he would have told other people about wanting to be called like that under the influence of drugs,
yet he would purposely deny it in front of himself, as basically anything he would have committed under the influence of drugs would be "undeterminable" and hidden behind a wall of privacy nobody could inspect or judge, according to his belief. As after murdering the child he would have been under strong influence of cocaine, he would have believed to feel a strong urge to almost expose himself as a child molester and a murderer in front of other people - he even has openly admitted to have killed a child recently but he wouldn't be taken seriously, this again caused Mario to think about the reason for that and that would be that the person which he would have talked to would have misunderstood his character "Jorge" which according to his opinion would have been present during the attempted provoking of a child into a homosexual activity and the cocaine intoxication accompanied by him telling other people about what he would have done, according to him people wouldn't be able to see Jorge in him on purpose because of being jealous of him for having killed the child in return of it not wanting to accept his explanations about an attempt of provocation of a homosexual act towards a child not being the same as molesting the child sexually and having being able to prevent the child from exposing him, at the same time he believes people would simply lack the ability to see "Jorge" in him and that would according to his opinion be an error of humanity and the universe in general, he believes to be a historically important supernatural factor which would require advanced abilities to be recognized as such, also his hallucinations about seeing the face of the boy he would have killed recurring everywhere, hearing the name "Mareco" casually and having the urge to "screech" the word "Mareko" more frequently - as Mario would have memorized the face of the boy permanently and would have projected it onto a
photography of himself just like the machistic and "fascist" character he would have projected onto the boy which would derive from observings of males in his envirnoment, he would let blend the traits he would find "strong" into "Jorge" (which would have been his "dominant" personality/character) and traits he would consider filthy which he would associate with the poor child, which would have contact to Mario because of receiving food from him, would be blended in in the character of "Mareko", which he would also consider parasitic - Mario believes that the boy would rejected him by a lack of thankfulness. "Jorge" is his character which he would describe himself with when feeling like being in total control of oneself and primarily others which would be mostly children or physically and mentally disabled people; he describes this character as sadistic, machistic and strict but doing his best to "guarantee absolute justice" for himself in front of people he would believe to control - in case he would believe that a woman would need to show to need his help a lot, he would attempt lynching her by telling mentally and physically disabled people lies about her, until these would harm her and he would have to intervene to save her, and as he would gain affection of this woman he would claim to be allowed to beat her in order to punish her for making the disabled people angry - as he knows that he would be judged negatively for doing the thing described above and as it's his only "proof" for "Jorge" being real he is constantly being torn apart between not being taken seriously and being harshly judged and the fear of both. Mario channels the hate towards his own mother and an according to him reverse model of the murder he would have committed into this recurring occurance he would have to need to do, as instead of a boy being killed in order to prevent an exposure of his murder to other people which
would trigger a wrong judgement of him, he would be the initiative point of people being aware of an information of the girl having done something wrong and he having to subsequently save her instead of killing the boy, it serves as a kind of reverse reenactment where Mario would play the role of the society he believes the society would have played in his murder; he is obsessed with the thought that humanity as a whole would have orchstrated and staged the situation where he wanted to molest the boy sexually, he claims that humanity would have used the boy as a kind of a bait in order to bring him in riddance of his true self which he would believe of to be how he would behave before killing the child. Marios psychological "control lever" which he would see in control of an undetermined human being which would be part of the global conspiracy against him is being confronted directly with his errors by somebody he wouldn't trust, the more he would feel that it would be close to reality, the more his behavioral traits would blend towards Marèko, directly self-harming behavior, substance abuse in order to "receive answers" (as he would believe that he would be able to "summon" his "inner beast"), decreasing verbality and the ability of forming coherent sentences and detect causalities properly which his main character of "Mário" would depend on. George Bush wouldn't accept being intellectually defeated, although he is supposed to be a politician - he actually is extremely stupid and he only would accept being physically dominated/shouted on the loudest as a reason to obey - as Mario would have the killing of a little child as the initial point of spawning of "Marèko", where Mario would believe to the ghost of the child molested and killed by him be transported onto him, George would have had multiple points in his life where he would have been brought to an "animalistic" state by his father Bush
What's the scientific consensus behind depression?
My brain hurts right now.
protips: Almost every known anti-depressant medication (pharmaceutical or herbal) also happens to be anti-inflammatory. Almost every behavior / risk factor that is positively correlated to depression is also positively correlated with inflammation. Almost every single behavior negatively correlated to depression also happens to be anti-inflammatory.

All living creatures occupy a primary dimension. They can manipulate but not dominate their primary dimension. They can feel but not manipulate the dimension above them. They are affected by, but cannot feel or manipulate higher dimensions above that.
Humans are 3D creatures. We dominate the 2D and 1D dimensions and have always survived as ground dwellers moving in a x-y plane. We can manipulate 3D (z axis) with lots of effort, and in fact much of humanity's progress is based on further control and manipulation of 3 dimensions (buildings, flight, etc).
We are affected by and feel, but cannot manipulate time. Time is the first order dimension above us. We know it exists and create all kinds of theoretical frameworks about it, we can even move about it to some extent by controlling our speed, but we can't explicitly control it.
This limitation will always be fundamental to us. We will never control time, it simply wasn't meant to be. We would lose meaning as a species of any action or decision can be changed.
But there are probably species above us that are primary 4D creatures. That can manipulate time. For them, life is probably more about comparing and trying to create the optimal timeline. And meanwhile, they too will feel and be dominated by higher dimensions. For them, gravity is probably the dimension that they can feel but not control.
And so on and so forth.
Extend this concept, and you'll see that there are infinite invisible dimensions that shape our destiny that we have zero control over, that we can't even measure. Just like how an ant could be squashed by us from above at any moment, but to them it will be like an object coming out of an invisible portal instantly. They could never comprehend.
Any input on my concept would be appreciated. I'm also working on a framework of how human behavior mimics the laws of physics, allowing ones understand of physics (momentum, gravity, laws of thermodynamics, etc) can predict ones behavior and inclinations.
This is just garbage and you know it.
Then how come 1 dimensional objects can manipulate and affect higher dimensional objects?
I don't think its as simple as that
>>10988613 >and you know it
Unawareness of confusion about conformance to reality is directly proportional to the number of dimensions assumed.
it's all QVE or quantum vacuum fluctuation or virtual photons pick one name. the virtual photons existed before the energy dump into space that is the universe the QVE is everywhere Tesla was right but he couldn't explain it.
Is research in machine learning legitimate?
What kind of advancements are being made?
Is this field going to fizzle out, or will it change our world?

Is reinforcement learning the next one to take the spotlight?

>Why the comparison to music?
Because I can't think of a better measurement of human creativity than jazz.
>As far..., ,...networks works?
Yes. The human brain has about synapses which are connected in an (pretty much) unknown way. The maximum amount of synapses/trainable parameters at current date is around , with an architecture which no doubt isn't the same as the human brain. So no, I don't believe there's any possibility that true human creativity/intelligence/similar can be created, it's at most mimicked.
Well, it's already been in the spotlight for several years with the Alphastar/alphadota/alphafold stuff
