You're always  :ummm: but at one point someone mentioned legs getting scratched...which is why it was brought up.   :dustrepeat:


:yes: Something like "He knows not to climb up my legs now unless I have jeans on".

Good Morning To All. 

Coffee is on :java: ahhhhhh



Hi Ray, Agent and DrX.....One thing I've learned about space and science.  Once they say that they've got things figured out....someone will always come along to unfigure them......and the process starts anew.  But I love it, because it gives you the opportunity to see the "What If" in what we think we know. 

Mc-G...answer to Yesterday's question...Yup..that's the cable box with the time showing.....

Good Morning Aelin....yes, I'm early....I decided I'll get back to the decorations after I pick Lorna up at 2 today...

Fafnir....Lorna throws his fetch balls to him until he gets worn out and decides to nap...then she clips the nails...works well LOLOL

And "J"......    :AEN02:


Yeah, the "What if...?" part.

That wouldn't work for my cat. I can wear her out and she'll go to sleep. But as soon as I try to do anything, touch her, she's all awake and squirming to get away. It's nice you have such a good kitty TL - lol.

How's everyone doing today? Hope you're fine and it's a good day. Stay pufft and stay warm if it's cold where you are.

I'm out of here for awhile today. Will be back laters. Have fun!

LOL.....He's good to a point.  He certainly tried to help me decorate yesterday.   As Aelin said.....Saying "NO" didn't do much except encourage him to find more mischief to get into....which is NO problem for him.... :tearlaugh:

It's a cold and rainy day today, but very good to hear that than... I won't repeat today what happens :shrug:
Maybe this weekend we'll have wind too. But not temperatures for snow.

As I just pointed out, I said "What if...?" Didn't say it was empty or a Void. Just "what if". I like how everyone didn't read that as I wrote it. I guess it doesn't behoove me to choose my words to express myself. Sadly, it's a habit.


Oh calm yourself, old woman...I didn't ignore ya, I read it! DUHH! I just don't like typing a lot so I shorten my replies. Plus...it's a bit painful for me to kneel here and read all that, in case you had forgotten overnight?!
 :sure: :thissmall:

Just like a woman...geezzzzz!

What if THIS is the Zero Dimension? It's ground zero for all We on this world perceive.
Oh I read what you had in your comment. I just interpreted it differently due to not really understanding it. That is my quirk working there.


Now I like your thought on the Zero Dimension. If I understand what you are saying, it puts each of us at the center of the Universe; in this case, the position from which we observe the Universe. That center moves with each of us as we move. All other things in the Universe are moving around us; near, far, and in between.


In a very real sense, this is true. As the Universe is infinite, there can be no true center other than that perceived by the observer, and the observer is that center in and of that observer's self, but only for that one observer.


Sounds deep, I know; but it really is deep.


Is this what you meant concerning this?

Oh-oh...I get worried when the very first line I wrote is completely ignored.

Okay - this is my take on what you've said. Not an argument but just a different way of looking at it or an explanation.

And did I make a point - or not - on Light having Mass? You neglected to mention that so maybe I think I did?

No. I don't think you're talking about 'branes. I'M talking about 'branes: as edges and possibly walls and doorways. I also said we don't really know where any of these alternate realities are. Do you know where the 7th Dimension is? I don't. That doesn't mean I might not visit one day in some strange circumstance.

You stated that alternate realities could have their own properties and rules. Yet you're kind of ignoring that is a possibility when you want to develop some way to enter them. What if they're moving at a much faster speed than we are? What if they're moving much slower and are so dark we can't see them? How long would we last there? Our bodies are not made to endure those temperatures, pressures or speeds. We are quantumly entangled with our other selves in those alternate realities. We're not supposed to be there. That would cause a problem - if alternate realities are just a different form of This. I don't believe they'd let you stay. I think there's Star Trek shows on that stuff, aren't there?

RE: the Void thing. I said "What if...?" it was a Void? I didn't say it was. 
 
You are correct, membranes are a minimal part of the Universe being as they're containers - IF indeed they exist. (Please note I said that.) One container can hold 1700 jelly beans which have a Mass greater than the container.

But we were talking about edges and I was coming at it from a different pov - that it implies a LIMIT to have an edge - like the skin of the balloon. Everything in Space has an edge if you like: atmospheres, EM shields, gravity wells, solar influences, spheres/orbits of influence, and EM currents to name some. They all have a limit that is 'calculated' by their Mass and Energy and the energy the speed they are traveling produces.

What if those "built-in calculations" are what create the limit naturally, and membranes are just a convenient word to describe the limit? That they are not something physical. The Universe is a machine in the way it works. It has to be 'Self-maintaining' and it apparently is. There could be no physical edge but there could be an 'energetic edge'.

As for those other things you describe existing in the Universe as a part of it, to me they are implied in the existence of Matter and Energy moving as it does through Space-Time. They are uhhh, I don't think "attributions" is the right word here. They're more implied in how Matter and the resultant Energy entered into Existence - however they did that in some millisecond of a second - expanding outward.

Paradox...the entire Universe is a paradox, full of them. That's why we could sit here and talk all day and we could all be right or we could all be wrong. Or somewhere in between. It is said that anything you can say about it is only a part of the truth of it. Even in Genesis, the Spirit moves across the face of the 'waters' and states that It comes from the Dark, and creates Light. Opposition. It is both and it is neither. Paradox. If the basic 'force' that created all of this is a Paradox, then everything else has the potential to be paradoxical too.
   
My apologies for seeming not to have read all of what you wrote. I did read it. Thing is my thoughts get directed toward certain aspect of another's statements, leading me into explanations, whith many may not interpret the same way. I think we all are like that to some degree or another.


Like me, when you get into this type of discussion, you become long winded. Note that I am saying I do as well. It's not a bad thing to be like that. It just means we have lots to say on the subject. It is true that subjects of this nature are very complex, so when we get into it, we must cover as much as we can on our thoughts concerning it. This is good, because if adds to the information we have, as we read each other's statements. It leads us to new thoughts we may not have had otherwise. I like this a lot, because it keeps the mind sharp!


On the last paragraph of your above comment: I agree that the Universe itself is a paradox; and that we ourselves are a paradox. But isn't it wonderful? And what if we are the expression of the paradox's intelligence? Thank you for leading me to this thought.
