Time dilation Time dilation explains why two working clocks will report different times after different accelerations. For example, at the ISS time goes slower, lagging 0.007 seconds behind for every six months. For GPS satellites to work, they must adjust for similar bending of spacetime to coordinate with systems on Earth.[1] History[edit] Time dilation by the Lorentz factor was predicted by several authors at the turn of the 20th century.[5][6] Joseph Larmor (1897), at least for electrons orbiting a nucleus, wrote "... individual electrons describe corresponding parts of their orbits in times shorter for the [rest] system in the ratio : Velocity time dilation[edit] From the local frame of reference of the blue clock, the red clock, being in motion, is perceived as ticking slower[11] (Exaggerated) Simple inference of velocity time dilation[edit] This constancy of the speed of light means that, counter to intuition, speeds of material objects and light are not additive. is longer than the period and , thus

Universe = Hologram? The Universe as a Hologram by Michael Talbot Does Objective Reality Exist, or is the Universe a Phantasm? In 1982 a remarkable event took place. Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram. To understand why Bohm makes this startling assertion, one must first understand a little about holograms. The three-dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characteristic of holograms. The "whole in every part" nature of a hologram provides us with an entirely new way of understanding organization and order. This insight suggested to Bohm another way of understanding Aspect's discovery.

Using Regular Playing Cards Sarena's Tarot Many professional cartomancers use a regular deck of playing cards for divination. Regular decks have been used for this purpose since their original adaptation from the tarot type decks of before. Usually there are more cards used per spread than regular tarot cards. What follows is a (very) general guide to interpreting regular playing cards. Ace: Has to do with one's home or environment. King: Represents an influencial man, someone who has the power or ability to do something good for the querent. Queen: A trusted woman. Jack:A good friend to the querent, someone close, a cousin or confidant, someone they have known since childhood or for a long time. 10:A good card: means good luck, can counteract bad cards around it. 9:Harmony. 8:An event, a celebration, a party/bash..etc. 7:A card of disappointent. 6:Warning card. 5:Indecisiveness: The querent's inability to make up his/her mind on a subject. 4:The bachelor or old maid card.

10 Futuristic Materials Lifeboat Foundation Safeguarding Humanity Skip to content Switch to White Special Report 10 Futuristic Materials by Lifeboat Foundation Scientific Advisory Board member Michael Anissimov. 1. Aerogel protecting crayons from a blowtorch. This tiny block of transparent aerogel is supporting a brick weighing 2.5 kg. Aerogel holds 15 entries in the Guinness Book of Records, more than any other material. Carbon nanotubes are long chains of carbon held together by the strongest bond in all chemistry, the sacred sp2 bond, even stronger than the sp3 bonds that hold together diamond. “Metamaterial” refers to any material that gains its properties from structure rather than composition. We’re starting to lay down thick layers of diamond in CVD machines, hinting towards a future of bulk diamond machinery. Diamonds may be strong, but aggregated diamond nanorods (what I call amorphous fullerene) are stronger. Transparent alumina is three times stronger than steel and transparent. inShare28 Materials

The Fermi Paradox PDF: We made a fancy PDF of this post for printing and offline viewing. Buy it here. (Or see a preview.) Everyone feels something when they’re in a really good starry place on a really good starry night and they look up and see this: Some people stick with the traditional, feeling struck by the epic beauty or blown away by the insane scale of the universe. Personally, I go for the old “existential meltdown followed by acting weird for the next half hour.” Physicist Enrico Fermi felt something too—”Where is everybody?” A really starry sky seems vast—but all we’re looking at is our very local neighborhood. Galaxy image: Nick Risinger When confronted with the topic of stars and galaxies, a question that tantalizes most humans is, “Is there other intelligent life out there?” As many stars as there are in our galaxy (100 – 400 billion), there are roughly an equal number of galaxies in the observable universe—so for every star in the colossal Milky Way, there’s a whole galaxy out there. 1. 2.

Our Strange Universe Space The universe can be a very strange place. While groundbreaking ideas such as quantum theory, relativity and even the Earth going around the Sun might be commonly accepted now, science still continues to show that the universe contains things you might find it difficult to believe, and even more difficult to get your head around. Theoretically, the lowest temperature that can be achieved is absolute zero, exactly ? One of the properties of a negative-energy vacuum is that light actually travels faster in it than it does in a normal vacuum, something that may one day allow people to travel faster than the speed of light in a kind of negative-energy vacuum bubble. One prediction of Einstein’s theory of general relativity is that when a large object moves, it drags the space-time around it, causing nearby objects to be pulled along as well. Relativity of Simultaneity Since this extra dimension is so small, only tiny objects, such as particles, can move along it. Antimatter Retrocausality

How to Read Tarot Cards How to Read Tarot Cards New Blog: (first posted 12/8/09) Nefer Khepri I. No one is really sure just how ancient the Tarot is or where it really comes from. Many people have speculated about the origins of the tarot. In my opinion, the origin of the tarot is not an issue. II. The typical tarot deck consists of a total of 78 cards. III. Tarot cards contain symbols on them that represent archetypes. IV. Most people who come to me for a reading are interested in discovering what the future holds for them. In this way, we know for a fact that the future is not engraved in stone. When used with this in mind, the Tarot can then map out strategies for you to use in order to achieve your highest goals. V. I work with a number of spirit guides who assist me in my readings, magical, artistic, & healing work. With the help of my guides and the symbols on the tarot cards, I can answer any type of question you wish. Second, clear your mind.

HP printer Display Hack Article at HellBound Hackers Ok, this is my first article/tutorial, so don\'t expect it to be super great. I was just googling random stuff the other day and i found a very interesting hack that is GREAT for a little Urban Defacement in your school\'s computer lab. OBJECTIVE... Change the display of the network printer in the computer lab. How It is Done. Step One.... Go to START.CONTROL PANEL.PRINTERS AND FAXES. right click the printer you want to hack, and select properties. Step Two... Run cmd and type \"Telnet [printer ip address] 9100\" you should then get a telnet prompt. type in @PJL RDYMSG DISPLAY=\"some text here\" press enter then ^] (the escape character) Do not worry if you cant see anything when you type in the @PJL... part: Remember that you are using telnet. I did this little trick at my school and made the printer say \"REMOTE ERROR: SYSTEM HACKED\" and when the teacher saw it, she really freaked out. This will not change the actual performance of the printer, it will only change the display message.
