  1. :D здравствуйте! I'd have guessed that your mother language, being that, prior to a life-threatening head injury, I was multilingual. Based upon both your last post and your avatar ( I once had a cat named кошка), you seem ready to pounce upon any opportunity to time travel by dashing through that figurative door (portal). While I am more experimental/scientific about some things, circumstance has more often than not resulted in my crossing strange thresholds, e.g. the previously mentioned injury, which resulted in a near death experience (NDE), is just one such example. That and all but one of my encounters with the unknown, which had nothing to do with any time machine, have been supernatural. 0:) MGby.
  2. Hello, Seesaw. What is your native language? The reason I ask is that, while I tend to sort of understand your responses, I've the impression you use idioms that lack English definitions. Therefore, I am not sure whether you are addressing Hawking's impossible invitation and/or what I have stated only partly in jest. Please explain what you meant, and, if the latter is the case, I will clarify as well.
  3. I want to see that test done on my cookware:

  5. Six years ago, I also liked this story. Closest to my excuse is number four of the following: Five Possible Reasons Nobody Showed up for Stephen Hawking's Retroactive Time Traveler Party http://www.giantfreakinrobot.com/scifi/reasons-showed-stephen-hawkings-retroactive-time-traveler-party.html (Five Possible Reasons Nobody Showed Up For Stephen Hawking’s Retroactive Time Traveler Party | Giant Freakin Robot)
  6. Health starts in the gut. Essential there is intestinal flora, microorganisms, e.g. the good bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus, which is the active ingredient in yogurt. Therefore, if you’re not allergic to dairy products, some yogurt should sooth your stomach. My preference is Greek style yogurt, because it tends to have the fewest artificial ingredients, no :-( corn syrup and less sugar. A good, balanced diet is, of course, vital to overall wellness. Next, if you rely heavily on pain killers, which, when kept in the one’s system, can eat a hole in one’s stomach and cause him to suddenly bleed to death, I’ve discovered a natural alternative with health benefits that I would be willing to share with you. Thank you for drawing to our attention a condition that is worth preventing. May you get well. Peace be with you.

  9. Yes. Though no specific mention of speed and motion, velocity, was made in my previous reply, variables beyond those stated where implicit in both what I stated and quoted. Your conceptualization is okay. Active threads instance the variables that must be calculated into an answer to your last question, i.e. simply put, after long journeys in space, astronauts are, upon their return, maximally out-of-sinc with the rest of us by mere minutes-- a comedic short film was done about such a variance, if you'd like for me to recommend it to you later.
  10. There is no simple answer to your question in that gravity is both a force and effect. Whereas the former is a product of mass(es), its proximation to the latter is the very warping of time itself. Moreover, the answer to your question, which involves bodies with specific masses, is only quantifiable in terms of how it is measured. I’ll use a quote to example one such measurement and, then, put it in a meaningful context: “[...R]esearchers exploited wave-particle duality and superposition within an atom interferometer to prove that an effect known as gravitational redshift – the slowing down of time near a massive body – holds true to a precision of seven parts in a billion”-- http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news/2010/feb/17/gravitys-effect-on-time-confirmed Whereas “[...]seven parts in a billion” may sound insignificant to you, such measurements are crucial to such things as the accuracy of global positioning systems. My suggestion to you? You might research gravitational redshift or time dilation.
  11. Most scientists believe it impossible to time travel backward in time, while proponents of the many worlds interpretation suppose people might move back or forward in alternate timelines. Even so, I knew a woman with a photographic memory, which is rarer than people are led to believe, who believed her memories cellular, i.e. literally those of her great, great grandparents whom were expert in similar branches of science. It was her genealogist cousin who revealed her predecessors a herbalist and botanist. Thus, owing to now extinct plant species, I can but wonder at her seemingly firsthand knowledge.
  12. Welcome. I'd have greeted you last night only that, by the time I noticed this, I was too tired to wish you transcendental dreams, e.g. :ph34r: you in another life/time:

  14. I've song for you. It isn't Pink Floyd, but it's progressive music and imaginably about a time-traveling gypsy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBcs4fff8Yw
  15. Greetings, LilLdyBg. I initially came here looking for scientific explanations of supernatural experiences and, thereby, acquired a leaning toward off-the-wall discussions. The present is a gift. In God alone do I hope to be immortal. May He "deliver us from evil." 0:) MGby.
  16. Greetings, Seesaw. Familiar as is your avatar, I don't think we've previously met. Or, much as I like to stretch my imagination, you'd guess that mentally impossible in this instance-- I'm not much of a multi-tasker. Surmising you against your being Schrödinger’s cat, please don't begrudge me for his fictional representation. Peace be with you.
  17. "Why, as things get bigger, does quantum physics [seem to] turn into classical physics"? I inserted the words seem to for, "[...w]ith Schrödinger’s kittens growing up, weird isn’t what it used to be." Now, I'd say more in regard to what Hyunseok Jeong of Seoul National University in South Korea thinks, but I don't want to be a spoiler. So, please read for yourself the following: Can a Human Be in Two Places at Once? - Nautilus Oct 8, 2015 ... Most scientists agree that technical difficulties will prevent us from ever putting a basketball, or even a human, in two places at once. But an ...
  18. The first article was published two years before the Higgs boson was discovered in 2012. About as close as I can come to imagining a universe with a single dimensional beginning is by envisioning ours as a thin membrane. Thin in that context, however, is far from flat. The fact that I did imagine Poirier's "Many Interacting Worlds" theory more interesting than is it did make the second article all the more enjoyable. Thanks, UTSA210.
  19. For some reason, my earlier response was lost... Have you searched "natural remedies for acid reflux"? Helpful, also, might be the following: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- How to Heal Damage from Acid Reflux (with Pictures) www.wikihow.com/Heal-Damage-from-Acid-RefluxProxy Highlight Apr 29, 2016 ...

I pray you find relief. 0:-) MGby.
  20. Thank you, KerrTexas. Paula, it's so nice to have female company here, i.e. human versus robotic, though GLaDOS and I did have fun together. Glad to meet you, Hard-worker. Thanks, is a like the heart button? I'll change a word next. Einstein, TTI would seem strange without you. I'll have to have a look around to update myself on your latest inventions.
  21. Believing time travel possible "...outside of the restrictions of light speed[,] paradoxes" and other problems, e.g. radiation associated with wormholes, I read with interest a book excerpt first reprinted, to my knowledge, at the link provided below: Time Travel and The Multiverse – Many Worlds: Many Timelines By Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman (Time Travel and The Multiverse - Many Worlds: Many Timelines - Paranoia Magazine)
