Hmmm, this thread doesn't make sense anymore...

Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?... (Really... But that's another thread of quales.)


Who needs any science fantasy telepathy when we already have developed over many thousands of years a highly evolved power of gestural and verbal communication and understanding?


The direct electrical transfer of brain impulses is rather interesting but also care is needed for what direction that research goes...


Keep searchin' and loving, :-)

Study Proves Extrasensory Mind-to-Mind Interaction at a Distance...

Yep, we've been doing that for over a century by the power of the telegraph and language. Amazing how a few dots and dashes can stir incredible thoughts in the mind of some distant recipient.

More recently, we use mobile phones.


And note also how I am stirring a response in your mind from these very hieroglyphs! :-P

... No electron is created or destroyed in the process.

Rob, thanks for clarifying that one :-)


A fascinating aspect of photons is that they appear to be timeless... We can detect photons still from those first visible from the very early years of our universe... And they uniquely propagate/travel at the speed of light...

This part where you say 'oscillating' sounds awfully like bouncing up and down though (like a sine wave).:

A light beam is made up of a vast stream of individual photons, usually all oscillating their own ways individually.

For the snake analogy, it is the snake that is the photon.

Does the snake 'bounce up and down'?

As a whole it doesn't. Over an average, the snake moves in a straight line.

Similarly so for what we call a photon.

Only if you could somehow look at a smaller scale than the photon, you might 'see' the electromagnetic oscillations 'inside' that as a group we call "a photon"...


That part about not being there if we look at it, I will Never understand.

All a part of our fundamental observation that energy can neither be created nor destroyed: You must always convert energy into another form.

Hence, when you manipulate a packet of energy such as a photon, you convert it into for example an electrical impulse on your camera photo-detector. (And so destroy the original photon. However, the energy from the photon lives on... As electrons in the detector.)

... It explains light waves by comparing it to a stone being thrown into a pond. It looks like the waves move out but that isn't the case, the water moves up and down as the energy waves passes outward. ...

So, do photons of electromagnetic radiation bounce up and down like the water used to illustrate waves?...

Simple answer, nope. It is all an illusion! ;-)


The description "photon" describes a single quanta of electromagnetic energy. You can't get 'half-photons' for example.

A photon is detected as a 'wave packet' (you can't see a photon in flight without destroying it as is done by detecting it). A crude visualization is perhaps that of a snake wriggling along in an S-shaped pattern along a sand surface. Any one part of the snake's body oscillates from side to side. The sequence of oscillating parts give the illusion of an S-shape continuously flowing backwards as the snake makes progress forwards. The trail in the sand shows the oscillation followed.


A light beam is made up of a vast stream of individual photons, usually all oscillating their own ways individually.

And then you get the very clever and highly unusual spectacle of laser light whereby a large number of photons are emitted almost simultaneously so that their oscillations are all in sync...

I'll let someone else pick up that story.


And a question for others:

Do our radio-frequency transmissions from wire aerials in effect generate a "laser-beam-like" but continuous coherent radiation?

How does that then break down into quanta as the radiation disperses?

All a crazy Feynman game of superposition of quanta?



The ripples on the surface of water are more analogous to the pressure profile for the compression waves that we hear as sound.


Hope not too confusing!

Another success example:


Ozone layer showing 'signs of recovery'

The ozone layer that shields the earth from cancer-causing ultraviolet rays is showing early signs of thickening after years of depletion...

Scientists say the recovery is entirely due to political determination to phase out the man-made CFC gases destroying ozone...




We can do things for the good of all after all when there is the appropriate 'impetus'...

It's really difficult to get unbiased information, someone is paying researchers to get 'results', researchers need to eat so have to make research somehow show what the customer wants.
As I've said before, there are lies, damned lies, and, statistics

Shame then for you that the real world physics have nothing to do with lies and statistics and overwhelmingly show that we are cooking our planet to a very rapid unnatural change.


We really have industrially pissed in our own bath for too much for too long.

How do human CO2 emissions compare to natural CO2 emissions?

... Has anybody else caught a whiff similar to the one that came from the "WMD" hype that preceded the toppling of Saddam Hussein? :( I can't seem to escape it assailing my nostrils :/

... It seems REALLY odd to me in this day and age, when even our sneezes may be being recorded by governments around the planet, that these guys (and girls) came as a big surprise to the west, and now dominate our headlines. Cynical smokescreen perhaps? On a planet where the value of score's of human lives are nothing when weighed against a few people's bigger picture?

... "I do not know who these people are and where they have come from, but I know they are not Muslims."

... :(

Putin and Saudi Arabia and Oil and 100 000 lives and more be damned?...


All for the sake of world politics.

Of course "ISIS" did not come from 'nowhere'. They have been armed and funded and trained and goaded into their fabricated 'jihad'. All by design.

MH17 is a useful news distraction and smokescreen for Putin.

And is this a potentially smart move that is being stymied by poor implementation and corrupt lobbying?...


Smart meters will save only 2% on energy bills, say MPs

Installing smart meters in every house in the UK will save consumers "only 2%" on their annual bills, a committee of MPs has warned...

... MPs also warned that the technology could be out of date by the time the roll-out is complete...



The idea to allow users to directly see what they are using is a good idea. Much better than the "nasty surprise" that some people suffer when eventually billed.

However, has this all been spoilt by deliberate incompatibility and inflexibility and delay for obfuscation whereby the 'Big Companies' are trying their usual monopolistic/cartel tricks of entrapment and gouging?...

And our planet be damned...

So... The question is: How best do we kick the politics and business corruption into shape to buy us time to get our culture into shape for living in a long term SUSTAINABLE balance with our planet?

By a simple understanding that business growth is driven by population growth.

Yes, it really is that simple.

Only if you wish to stay blind and simple.

That "business growth drive" is all a part of the present self-destruction pushed by financial driven Marketing driving 'consumerism'. The forces of 'finance' there really do push for everyone to be ever more wasteful and destructive. How better to get more of your product sold than to persuade/force people to buy it multiple times over?...

So, do we need to shoot the destructive financial and Marketing practices to save out planet? Or can politics and good sense triumph to curb the destructive excesses?

The politics and good sense could also lead to a more healthy culture for all...

Ignoring all the personalized mis-quoting... To give:

... we are already over 10 times beyond it. If we weren't 10 times beyond it, we wouldn't have an issue with CO2 or global warming. ... some magic potion that will allow 20 times more to live on the planet. If there is some way to have each person cut 95% of their CO2. Cut that much and all commerce stops. ... in denial about the magnitude of the problem and the required cuts to eliminate the problem.

That gives a good summary of one view of doom and gloom.

Don't know where your x10 and x20 and 95% assumptions come from... Nor for how somehow all commerce must come to a halt...

We certainly do need to become a lot less corrupt and a lot more altruistic and cooperative to sustain our present levels of activity. We also must stop the corruption of enforced continual-growth-until-catastrophe and collapse.

And we do seem to be working towards that. Even Big Business is starting to feel the financial pressure of the disruption caused by their own pollution. Very much a case of finally noticing that they are "pissing in their own bathtub". Unfortunately, we are all in the same bathtub!


So... The question is: How best do we kick the politics and business corruption into shape to buy us time to get our culture into shape for living in a long term SUSTAINABLE balance with our planet?

For all our flagrant wasteful pollution, our present day tech is already available to buy us a lot of time... If only that is usefully done soon enough...


We are not doomed yet, but we are playing an ever more stupid and expensive game of 'chicken' with our climate and weather and planet.

Gary what the hell does that have to do with Flooding in Kashmir or Pakistan ???

I was commenting on MK's message. I know this board doesn't thread well, but there is an "in response to Message #"

Interesting thanks for the aqua-strata for that part of Texas.

So... With the unusually intense rainfall, the artesian wells are going to blow their tops and flood far away from the rainy area?... :-P



More seriously, is there where Big Industry can deny their impact on the surrounding world no longer?

Business finds new ways to save water for the future

... "I am not saying climate change is not important," he told the Financial Times in July.

"What I am saying is even without climate change we are running out of water and I think this has to become the first priority."

The statistics are certainly shocking...

... Less talked about, though, is the potential impact on business and the global economy. Water is after all an essential input just like energy...

... "So now when they go into a region like India, they invest in habitat restoration, ensuring the quality of the waterways. "You think it's not revenue-related but it is, because it also secures their factories' future in that region in the long run."




Can business really look after our environment 'for the long run'?...

... If this *IS* human caused climate change, I must say that I like it.

At the other end of the jet stream we have:


Anger grows amid flood disaster in Kashmir and Pakistan

There is mounting anger in Indian-administered Kashmir amid accusations that the government has acted too slowly in the flood crisis.

Many homes and even hospitals in the capital Srinagar are submerged...

... in Pakistan the authorities are preparing to battle rising rivers threatening Multan city.

The death toll in the two countries has passed 450 and is growing by the day...



There is a strong connection there...

What brand of paint thinner was she sniffing when she thought up that idea?

And how does one get a job as messenger? :)

I don't know, but it sure would be an interesting job :)

Also sounds like a good chance to get a good slap across the face!

Or worse depending on locality...


Good idea as an "ice-breaker" but that doesn't always work in too wide a group...

Also very good for too many pranks...


Still, very good 'fun' business with the fun at everyone else's expense!

Also, where is the thread about the fathomless on-going atrocities in Syria:


Syria crisis: Chlorine gas used in attacks...

... Over the past year, Syria's declared stockpile of banned munitions was shipped out of the country and destroyed, under the terms of an international agreement.

However, Syria was not obliged to declare any stockpiles of chlorine, regarded as a weak toxic agent.

The latest OPCW report said a toxic chemical was used "systematically and repeatedly" in the villages of Talmanes, Al Tamanah and Kafr Zeta in northern Syria...



Just that one example gives a very stark contrast to the very different nature for the recent headlines on the other side of the boarder for Gaza...
