Carl sagan was a genius! He got me interested in science and light. Now we have prof. Brian cox. I <3 prof. Brian cox! He portrays the wonder of science, and his love of science in his speeches! I wish I could comprehend and retain the knowledge these men (along with a few others) have.
You may think I'm crazy but Bruce Lee also had an awesome perception on conciousness. "Be formless, shapeless, like water."
<3 these guys who open doors, then ignite a curiousity that keeps me questioning and searching for answers.
"Be water, my friend."

I'd prefer if you stick to discussing actual science in this forum - unless you want to discuss math or history. Sure, appreciating the great minds of the past few centuries is nice, but appreciating what they did is much better. If I go on to do something important, I'd prefer if people talk about and built upon what I did, rather than sit around talking about me.

 

So... What exactly have these people done? What have they discovered or invented? Tell me more!

Carl sagan brought astronomy to a comprehensive level for many who otherwise wouldn't understand therefore wouldn't care. Prof brian cox is making the connection between the universe and our own biological makeup. He is also pioneering quantum theory which he is helping turn from theory to fact. And finally bruce lee's physical abilities were a phenomenon. He tried to explain the best he could the mind-body connection, which i consider scientific. Plus its bruce lee! Come on!

I assumed being a science forum people would at least know who carl sagan was. My mistake

I did not say "I do not know who these people are."

I said "Let's discuss their actions instead."

 

You see, we're on a science forum. I'd prefer to discuss science over scientists.

Not a problem. How about quantum theory? It was invented back in the late 1800's by Max Planck. According to this theory, light moves in packets, or "quanta". Higher frequencies carry more energy, and are thus bigger "packets".

 

Anything to add?

You know, Schrödinger's cat was intended as a mockery of quantum theory.

i did not, but it makes one think.  satire has really changed the world, like daylights savings time was started by ben frank commenting about how early the french went to sleep.  they should change their clocks to save money on candles or something like that.

back to the cat, duplicity of two states until observed, therefore conscious defines reality, right?  so wouldn't consciousness in some form predate everything we know of, if thats the very thing that creates it?

I'm not sure. Consciousness shouldn't be necessary for reality, so I suspect "observation" means something else when pertaining to quantum theory.

4 spatial dimensions? Incomprehensible to me.

We already live in 4 dimensions. 3 spatial and 1 temporal. There is no 4th dimension, but you can live in 4 spatial and 2 temporal dimensions. Pretty sure that's possible.
