    The First Principles of Reality: An Argument for the Existence of a Simply Existent Universe

    Personally, I have nothing to invest. I am 58 years old, my health is poor, I won't live many ,more years. Why should I care? Grandchildren. I have 14 grandchildren. These children will grow into a world that gets harder and harder to live. They won't care about a simplistic Universe because...

    The First Principles of Reality: An Argument for the Existence of a Simply Existent Universe

    It seems to me you are more concerned with your peer group than the solution of the problem of your thesis? Personally, I think you need to examine your reasons for progression. If you are looking for fame or notoriety, yer barking up the wrong tree. The real thesis should drive you for...

    The First Principles of Reality: An Argument for the Existence of a Simply Existent Universe

    LOL, so yer hung up on math. so? I know lots of people hung up on math that can't deal with the reality they face everyday? Where's the quandary? Anyone that exists in this world knows there are things math can't explain. That fact is proof that math is merely an understanding of certain...

    The First Principles of Reality: An Argument for the Existence of a Simply Existent Universe

    Something else for pondering... All mass is made of energy. This is demonstrated by the atomic bomb. Consider that the simplest reality of the Universe is energy. What we recognize as mass, is actually condensed energy. Reality is made of areas of energy in different concentrations but to get...

    The First Principles of Reality: An Argument for the Existence of a Simply Existent Universe

    Why? Humans (Sentinent Sapiens) invent the 'world' in which we live. We are a social species. Social indicates a need for unity. We create the associations to stimuli and assign meaning and nomenclature so we can be united as a social creature. These associations are the foundation of our...

    The First Principles of Reality: An Argument for the Existence of a Simply Existent Universe

    First, I am not a 'scholar', just a disabled truck mechanic. My 'views' are merely observations and ideas from the 58 years of my life. While some of it is referenced from random studies and inputs I have no actual references to give that would allow you a direct research query. That being said...

    Sci-Fi Starbase Yorktown Plausibility Study (spoilers)

    Watched it again just recently - still no justification. No matter how many times I watch it - it DOESN"T make sense.

    Umm? I'm wondering? You're reservation on your ideals? Granted this was posted in Creative Writing. I'm wondering a few things? If this a basis of you own beliefs? (of which I feel you should experess and embrace fully) Or Is this the basis of a story idea you wish to tell (again, which I...

    Sci-Fi Avengers - End Game

    Granted it IS a fun movie to watch. However, if you possess even a smidgen of a rational mind, given, in a suspended belief understanding, there is a bit of rationality that screams "foul" that breaks the disbelief. I do understand the need to accept what is given. Most will just take it as it...

    Sci-Fi Avengers - End Game

    Two problems with Endgame: One they did not get the Soul Stone and two Thanos had way too much power to defeat the Avengers. But... the key fracture is the Soul Stone.

    Sci-Fi Wheres the next big sci fi movie??

    There are new ideas being done but the industry doesn't give them the money that would make them memorable. They put the funding to projects they know will make them the most money. Sequels, prequels, remakes, re-imaginings and reboots of stories that have already made them a pot of gold is...
