Why Time travel (at least backwards) is not possible – The Philosophy of: minutephysics and the Grandfather Paradox

Time travel’s a tough nelly. And largely because Time only goes in one direction. And maybe that’s enough to prove that traveling backwards in it is not possible. Well, this paradox from minutephysics is something that could make the whole thing at least a bitch to do, makes the whole …

The philosophy of: inertia (& the philosophy of: Paul Rulkens – If you want results you’ve never had before, you have to start doing things you’ve never done before. And why the majority is always wrong.)

Philosophy and physics are like 2 twins separated and birth and brought up in different families – at the heart of it, they’re fundamentally similar. If you understand physics, you can understand how everything in the world works and interacts with each other. And if you understand philosophy you can …

You are made of the elements that created the universe (ie. You’re an old fuck. More specifically, about 14 billion years old.) Oh, and also, your wife, partner, passionate latin lover, fuck buddy, whatever… they’re your cousin.

All energy that is used up, lost, burned up, or evaporates, gets used in some other natural processes. And so if the universe is a zero-energy universe, where no energy can be created or destroyed, and all the energy that came into it still remains in it that means we …

Everything in billions of years of evolution, and everyone and everything you care about is the size of that (sort of) dot on my hand. You’re welcome.

Step 1 – Get a pen: Step 2 – Make a dot: Step 3 – Use your eyeball sockets and specifically your eyeball balls to look at the dot: That’s the size of Earth when you look at it from 900 miles away.  Everything ever than anyone ever did, or …

The philosophy of: my microwave and oven after a blackout last night, my favourite time (who-gives-a-fuck o’clock) & another student of mine inspires me

There was a blackout where I live last night. Which was excellent for 2 reasons –one, because a blackout limits your options of what you can do (and I’m pretty sure there’s a strong correlation between having fewer options and contentment), and two, the time display on my microwave and …

Missing the point #5: Our understanding of death – what are we on about? We’ve got no idea. (+ Neil Strauss on statues and commerative days)

Humans understand a bunch of shit. We can split the atom, build the Large Hadron Collider and launch and then land a rocket back on Earth. But there’s one thing we have no clue about, one thing that’s physically impossible to experience and share knowledge about (and therefore impossible to know what the …

Everything is atoms – If you find you’re affected by someone or something, break it right down to a atomic level. Remember that thing or person is just a collection of atoms.

That’s the number of atoms on earth. All matter on the planet. And that’s all that anything you care about is. Just heaps of atoms. People are just a collection of atoms (just like any thing), words spoken are just an arrangement of symbols to make sounds, photos are just …
