Re: Those productive french

No one chooses to live in Switzerland unless they are emotionally dead.
That's said by someone living in England. May be your weather is tricking you.
Switzerland has much better skiing than England, including after ski (lots of emotions there)/

Re: New Clock Synchronization Gedanken Experiment

" antirelativists" few of these are  antirelativists, for example the Mansouri and Sexl transformation or the Levy transformation are still relativity theories, Sagnac can be discussed under such transformations as well, they have not abandoned the relativity principle. they are however question the...

Re: New Clock Synchronization Gedanken Experiment

"There's no disagreement on the derivation of Sagnac's result." well yes the disagreements is mostly on the interpretations, but yes also how much different researches actually have captured in their derivations and discussions on their derivations. The result from Sagnac when sent in air (close to...

" Paul Langevin and many others provided a simple derivation of „Sagnac effect”  read  critics of Langevin  interpretation by Selleri and others "As first discussed by Langevin came 7- 8 years later and was as much as formally self-assured as  substantially  weak....The impression that  Langevin,  ...

Re: New Clock Synchronization Gedanken Experiment

 physicists do not agree on if Sagnac can be explained inside SR, or if one need GR. Several claims only can be explained inside GR. But the GR camp can not agree on explanation either. As late as 2019 we can read the following in a quite well respected journal "in more than a hundred years, there a...

Re: Stupid question of the day

If you have a wife and children where do you put your hat in the car? Wherever you put it it gets trampled on or thrown around. The glove compartment is too small. There should be a hat compartment. I need to get a Rolls. To my astonishment, your problem is a thing. A quick search of “car hat rack”...

Re: Stupid question of the day

assume i need to describe something with an equations, for example the number of red apples on a tree I could have RedApples=N where N is the number of red apples. or I could have RedApples=N*M^2/M*M where M is the number of leaves on the tree and N is the number of red apples, in other words second...

and what would batman say about them?  “We see the impact of climate change on bats, and so we’re in favor of renewable energy,” Hein says. “It’s unfortunate that one of those—wind energy—has this negative impact.” Bat Killings by Wind Energy Turbines Continue Large numbers of bats are being killed...

Re: Tilting at windmills

are we really sure there is not a noise problem, I mean is it really okay with just looking at the average noise  are they looking at average noise? to build out wind mills are more complex, I would say it much depends on also where.  Many places one are placing wind farms one have to build roads in...

Blame the sea?  (the Dirac sea is a theoretical model of the vacuum as an infinite sea of particles with negative energy).  "Forced to make a recommendation about who should receive the prize first, Einstein put Schrödinger slightly ahead of Heisenberg.

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Dirac introduced negative probabilities long before Feynman A lready in 1960 Vigier and Terletski seems to be critical to the interpretation of negative probability. The cause is the  silly negative energy as they and other have pointed out "Negative 'probability'  densities appeared to be inevitabl...
