    Default Through the Wormhole with TypeC Members

    Theories? Questions? General information to share? I think it would be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to these things, especially since I am getting sick of posting scientific questions under their own threads. Of course, if needed, I can do that, but I'd like to see how something like this goes.

    Some of my biggest questions are:
    Is the universe really infinite? Is there something outside of nothing? Or is there nothing out side of nothing? But nothing is space! Nothing is something!

    Are there extra dimensions? If so, how would we prove this?

    Wormholes?

    What happens if I fill my microwave with aluminum foil?


    You guys see where I head with this thread.

    Someone said wormhole? I'm going in!

    Some of my own questions:

    What exists beyond the universe? It it just a vacuum of nothingness, or is there something beyond it? Another universe?

    How can a human being who perceives things in 3-D perceive the 4th dimension?

    If quarks make up subatomic particles, what makes up quarks?

    Do other animals other than humans find enjoyment in music? What type of neurological pathways does a musical stimulus follow in human beings? Why do some people find enjoyment in some pieces of music whereas others don't?

    How does a digital keyboard work? How does its circuitry differ from an analog synthesizer?

    What would the waveforms of different sounds look like on an oscilloscope?

    What biological mechanisms/ biochemical reactions happen when two people are in love?

    And on a not so serious note:
    When will someone invent a sonic screwdriver?

    im thinking its the outer-verse, outside the universe(guess)
    I think humans see things in 2-d but we live in 3-d (correct me if Im wrong,) and 4-d see`s in 3-d

    quarks? gonna have to look into that, I got the time.


    you got me on the other questions.

    I do believe animals enjoy music. Mine seem to enjoy tv.

    Also, on a serious note: I will so invent a sonic screwdriver. Oh, and we don't perceive things in 2d to the best of my knowledge. I heard one story about a women who was born cross or cockeyed or something, and she perceived the world in 2d until she finally trained herself to see 3d.

    And quarks are made of SUBquarks, duh!

    i wonder if we really do astral project in our sleep and visit other planes of existence....and if that's what death is like all the time

    When human beings listen to music, the auditory stimulus enters the auditory canal and follows a pathway toward the auditory nerve, sending a signal to the brain over in the regions to the side of the brain. Because of the close proximity of the auditory region of the brain to that which processes language and speech, it can be hypothesized that such auditory stimuli get interpreted by the brain much like that of speech and language. So a piece of music, the tonalities of the notes, for instance if it is a major key, will get interpreted as something that is happy, much like a human being's speech when they are happy sounds elated and elevated. But furthermore, auditory stimuli can route itself to the seat of emotional memory in the brain, the hippocampus, and this is where we end up interpreting such stimuli as being related to a previous emotional memory, or in encoding emotional memory at the instant the song is being heard. Additionally, the stimulus' signal can route itself to the pleasure centers of the brain, including ones for food, drink, and sex. This type of routing of the stimulus is likely the reason why some people experience intense emotional pleasure while listening to a piece of music, what will be known as the "shivers up the spine" effect. Sometimes a piece of music, when it hits these pleasure centers ends up making the pieces even more addictive and why some people would end up listening to the piece more often to achieve the same shivers up the spine sensation. After prolonged exposure to this stimulus, the effect wears off.

    So, it could be that human beings invented music as a method to communicate with each other.

    Is the universe really infinite? Is there something outside of nothing? Or is there nothing out side of nothing? But nothing is space! Nothing is something!

    I believe space is infinite, but there is a limit to how far matter in this space reaches. For example, I believe there is an object that is furthest away from the planet and beyond that it's just completely empty but for the infinitely reducing, but never hitting zero, magnetic forces.

    Are there extra dimensions? If so, how would we prove this?

    Funny question. There are more than one dimensions as we have assigned them to it so. Putting a name to a dimension is just giving a name to a more intricate depth of science. Dimensions are often mistaken for entirely different planes of existance. However, from a single perspective, the 3rd dimension and the notion of time (4th) is as far as we can deduce, beyond that is not something we can observe or see for ourselves, however, there may be tests divised that can explain further dimensions in better detail by showing us certain results otherwise unpredictable without the existence of more dimensions. Like a "This should be true, so there must be something else going on." kind of way.

    Wormholes?

    Make for great science fiction stories, one of my favorite tv shows, farscape, is all about them! But scientifically, I'd say the name is misrepresenting itself. If a wormhole is nothing more than a shortcut through space time, there isn't actually going to be a visible hole or whatever, but more of an intricate design to use the relativity theory to ones advantage in order to travel somewhere without losing much time yourself as compared to the rest of the universe.

    Still, great sci-fi material.

    What happens if I fill my microwave with aluminum foil?

    Nothing. *innocently whistles*

    No seriously, the tin foil can cause fire. Because the microwaves (or radiowaves) are traveling through the thin layer of the tin foil and the sheer force with how it does can be too much for the foil to handle and burst into flames.

    Mostly metal in microwaves just serve as a mirror to the waves, for example heating up something inside a tin can is impossible, but also not very dangerous because the tin can will be strong enough to withstand the microwaves, still, it's useless to use your microwave on something that isn't going to heat up. Tin foil just acts a bit differently due to it's thinness.



    And making a time machine is out of the question using a microwave.

    Would it be possible to engineer some kind of "God"? Either by accident or on purpose? Could AI technology ever get that good/naturally evolve to become that good or is that merely sci-fi speculation? Is it scientifically possible?

    Is it scientifically possible for people to evolve/mutate to have superpowers (a la X-men)?

    If two men want to have a baby together is it possible to take the genes of one and the genes of the other and create life? Could we turn the genes of one into a viable egg that could be fertilized by the other's sperm? That way they don't have to fight over who get's to be the baby's genetic/"blood" father.

    Obviously depends on your definition. If God means an allknowing being, that is always everywhere, hears everyones thoughts and prayers and apparantly must live a few dimensions up from us. Then no. If God means a computer that can process all information the universe throws at it, then yes.

    Is it scientifically possible for people to evolve/mutate to have superpowers (a la X-men)?

    Evolve? No. Unless you count underwater breathing a superpower and the global warming finally engulfs the planet in nothing but water and sees like what happened to that Kevin Costner dude in that water movie, then yes, it's not unthinkable we could adapt to slowly changing environments.

    Mutate through means of gene therapy and such? That holds more potential.

    There can be a mix of both dads into the sperm genes, but there'll always also need to be a female egg present. Unless you grow the egg in a laboratory but I think there are laws against human cloning or creating human life that way.
