Seriously, what the fuck is the Aether?

No.14427464 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I understand that there are a multitude of layers of understanding needed to comprehend metaphysics and the EWS, but what exactly does that mean? By that, I am referring to the existence of aforementioned Aether. Can everything really just be broken down to waves and particles? Can we control that? I am not asking what is right, I want to know what isn't wrong.

Thinking about making an app that lets you tickle the dragons tail. I am going to do some research about it but as a starter thought I might ask some smart guys. What were the exact objectives of the experiments with the demon core? Like what measurements were gathered by getting the darn thing into such a dangerous state.

Anyone got a quick useful source on understanding Antenna gain? Specifically Antenna gain pattern
I need to model Antenna gain for an assigment and I've never took a course about Antennas before.
They gave us chapter 6 of constantine but it was overwhelming and I don't think I understand it.

Quantum computing and Scott Locklin

No.14425600 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I can't figure out if quantum computing is a complete scam or if it's a good but slow moving field. Based on the huge progress in the last 4 years, things seem to be picking up on the experimental and engineering side, but it's hard to shake the skepticism off. Is quantum just nanotech 2.0?

Similarly, I can't figure out Scott Locklin actually brings up good points, or he's a bitter experimentalist-turned-financebro who's operating on really rusty fundamentals. Dude seems to have a chip on his shoulder for literally anything that isn't space age or on the shoulders of WWII. Everything of his that I read seems to subscribe to a macho man "my raised eyebrow is better than your hopes or hardwork" attitude.

The science is changing again, brace for impact

Massive paradigm shift is coming to the sciences as a result of Elon Musk's hostile takeover of Twitter. Nothing that SpaceX has done or will do will ever come close to what Musk is trying to pull off with Twitter.

Is climate change as bad as they say? I see retards saying that things will get catastrophic by 2050, on the other hand, retards saying that climate change will barely affect us. What are your thoughts, /sci?
