Is there any room in theoretical science for a progenitorial higher intelligence, if this presupposition is based entirely on natural laws? If not, why not?

Math Anxiety

15 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm looking to be a career physicist(specifically quantum mechanics), which I know requires a lot of math. As a senior in high school starting college in the fall, I currently have a B+ in mathematics (past grades include A-). I think this may be due to math anxiety, which I regularly feel during tests. I don't think it's the math itself, for I can easily get As on other assignments, but I completely shut down if it's something as important as an exam. Does anyone know how to get over this?

At what age did you take Calc. 1?

I'm taking it this summer, along with Applied Calculus I, at age 21.

Hello /sci/, if I give you a shape/logo would you be able to derive its construction?I mean simple shapes and ratios. I want it to be geometrically sound and also be able to easily reproduce it.Thanks

/x/ is full of retards so I come to you /sci/, as a humble moron expecting to be completely torn apart, with a question. Say hypothetically that telekinesis were a real and observable phenomenon. I don't believe that it is, but I'm curious as to how it might be explained if it were. How could it happen that an object could be manipulated remotely? Would some kind of contra-gravity or magnetic field be required?

Theoretically, if I needed to acquire some 2-methyl-1,3,2-dioxaphospholane and dichlorofluoronitrosomethane, how would I go about that?

sup /sci/, aut/o/ here, i just thought of something and wanted your input. if i built a perfectly straight shaft 10' in diameter that whet the the earth from one point to the other and pushed someone down it would they fall until they reached the center because of gravity? like would the just float once they reach the middle because gravity is pushing them equally from both ends. p.s. just posted this in /x/ and it got deleted after 10sec so if this doesn't belong here can you atleast tell me where i should ask

What I just ate: 1350 calories total carbs: 360g, 90% RDV that includes 270g sugar vit. D: 18K-IU, 4500% RDV (lipid soluble) vit. C: 11.88g, 18900% RDV zinc (zinc gluconate): 0.27g, 1800% RDV sodium: 0.9g, 90% RDV If you're wondering, 3 bottles of 60 ea. lil' critters gummy vites for immune C support. That's 90 servings. What's the most probable outcome for me?

I have a question about PDEs. Does this same thing apply to the 2D heat equation? Later in my book it goes over how to find the steady-state solution of the 2D heat equation with inhomogeneous BCs, but it never says anything after that. It never says anything at all for inhomogeneous BCs of the 2D wave equation.

What is the appeal of studying outer space? Why is it that if you asked the average person to name the most difficult field of study they could think of, they'd probably answer with "astrophysics"? Don't get me wrong, I'm an engineering undergrad, so I don't know shit about anything (I honestly feel like I don't, but that's a post for another time.), but space just seems boring to me. I have a friend who majored in business administration and minored in astrophysics, but he only had to take two semesters of non-calc-based physics and a couple entry-level astronomy classes to fulfill the requirements for the minor. The guy's average. He's not stupid. He's not smart. He's average. He's not the kind of person you'd think would have a minor in a STEM field. I'm sure that "real" astrophysics is much more rigorous than what he had to do, but if this is what the average person associates with astrophysics, why would they think it's harder than [insert your major here]? Why when the average Joe tries to brag does he talk about space instead of something people can actually relate to? I honestly don't get the appeal of outer space and I don't get why /sci/ is constantly flooded with threads about black holes and stuff like that.

New Particle alert!!!

http://lhcb-public.web.cern.ch/lhcb-public/ >9 April 2014: Unambiguous observation of an exotic particle which cannot be classified within the traditional quark model http://www.quantumdiaries.org/2014/04/09/major-harvest-of-four-leaf-clover/ >Theorists are hard at work now trying to come up with a model to describe these new states. Is this a completely new tetraquark, a bound state of four quarks, or some strange combination of two charmed mesons (mesons containing at least one charm quark)? The question is still open. Throw out your books /sci, they are obsolete now.
