Re: What is democracy?

"to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts " I commemorate those who fought on our side in WW1&2, but I have a problem with those. Freedom's just another word for nothing left to los...

No bull-...! ;-D
Just a small lodge at the entrance to the forest.

Strawberry run soon - who's first, me or the birds and other beasts?

Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

In the Old Testament, Leviathan appears in Psalms 74:14 as a multiheaded sea serpent that is killed by God and given as food to the Hebrews in the wilderness. WT*? ppauper never told us that? So, Lev was a big edible eel? Since there's been so many mentions of eels in the forum lately, I no longer ...

Re: Do you sing shanties at your work place?

Anyone? You and JohnLeM cannot, despite trying hard (outrun thought that anyone can become a professor). You are just jealous that I'm Collector's fan, not yours. I tied his shoelaces once :-P https://i.redd.it/b6gb00q04iq21.jpg To become a professor, some preconditions might be 1) you are Phd (MSc...

Re: The Origin Of Gravity From First Principles.

Einstein was offered to become the first president of Israel. If he, a pacifist, could see the future, he would have accepted. Kamala Harris doesn’t know physics? Careful there, she's Hindu after her mother. Don't you know that Schrodinger and the clique ripped off quantum mechanics from Vedic scrip...

Re: The Origin Of Gravity From First Principles.

Always wandered: you are so keen to share your scientific endeavors, but no one shows any skepticism. Looking at your papers, I see that 99% of the citations come from your other articles - not a good thing.  Same goes to Krasnoholovets, btw - just checked. Am I the first to say this? Will I now ge...

Re: negative transition probability

Pile of nonsense. They are talking about Wigner functions, not probability, obviously. In BEC, the temperatures are so low that electrons in the crystal lattice move very slowly. This increases their de Broglie wavelengths and thus the wave-like nature starts to dominate (over the particle nature). ...
