I think you were asking about: decoherence/quantum entanglement of gravitons?

In another sense, objects which are strong radiators of gravitons, such as closely orbiting neutron stars or black holes will emit a coherent beam of gravitons, which radiate outwards at the speed of light. The field generated by this source is sometimes represented as a spiral centered on the source. (The field structure gets a lot more complex during the final collision!)

I would imagine that the coherence is due to the density and the effect this has on the structure of the mass. At the moment I am interested in much less intense sources of gravitation. I haven't even thought about the effects of density on the gravitational field. I do wonder about the intense magnetic fields around dense objects. Would this be due to the velocity of the force carriers for magnetism? If at a lower velocity than c they may have more freedom of movement. I know that sounds unlikely within the current theories but I doubt the accretion disk is the source of the whole field.

Here are a few quotes from Albert Einstein that reflect his admiration for the simplest method for explaining things:

"Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler."

"It should be possible to explain the laws of physics to a barmaid."

"Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone."

"God always takes the simplest way."

IMHO, our friend Albert might be remembered as a philosopher if he hadn't become known for his scientific genius.

Might be true for cats but most animals cant reach their mouth to their anus. Ex. My dog, a hippo, elephant, bears, goats,  well jsut about everyone outside felines.

Technology / Re: Can layered conical graphene structures block bullets?

I heard that the military would be interested in graphene if someone could economically produce a vest with 1 million layers of graphene.
In the meantime they will stay with their current materials.

I'm definitely not doing and undoing anything
Algorithms for integrating and differentiation will look very different from each other, but that doesn't stop them being inverses of each other.

Just like the methods we are taught for doing multiplication and division "by hand" look very different from each other, but they are still inverse functions.

at the highest frequencies, and that's where noise is being generated that is hiding any real signal

Looking for changes in signal direction (differentiation) emphasises high frequencies, and emphasises noise.

You could try filtering the input signal to keep it within the human speech band - there is little useful information above 7kHz.

Can layers of conical graphene structures redirect bullet velocities from perpendicular velocities to lateral velocities?  If coupled with shear stress fluids would the bullet force be redirected into lateral modes and slowed within the shear stress fluid?  If the graphene cones were not sturdy enough to withstand the energy of the bullet could the graphene cones be positively charged and the outer layer of the vest also be positively charged so when the bullet forces press the positively charged outer layer towards the positively charged cones, the layers would repel each other and redirect the bullet laterally into sacs of shear stress fluid?

Although I cannot think of any way of determining this superposition should be a property of the gravitational field.

New Theories / Re: thrust does not work in space

If you will allow me I believe I have the perfect explanation for that, I think any layman should grasp.

Because a one can argue with the cubes and string example saying that the surrounding atmosphere has to be considered as one of the cubes, and the string being the force of the expanding gas.

Thrust in space actually depends on the fact that there is nothing to push against in space. How?
Well it's very simple, imagine a box in space with 5 sides, one at the top and 4 on the sides and the bottom is open, if we triggered fuel reaction inside at the center of the box the (360 degrees) pushing force of the expanding gas will push against the 4 sides equally so the box will not move sideways, and will push against the up side and move it upward, but there is almost zero push in the bottom because there is nothing to push against.

We have to bear in mind that the rocket in space will have zero gravitational mass meaning much less force can make a big effect, so if you have something to push against, there will be gravitational mass which will lead to consume a lot more fuel.

I can safely say you can use your deodorant to spin in space, because the gas release will make it push against your arm that is limiting it is expanding speed, it is the gas trying to spread equally in all directions.

Out of this, I believe space is definitely not empty, actually it is absolutely full, there is no single Planck scale space that is empty in the whole universe, it's not only me, but more than 50 research groups of physicists around the globe and more are working on the Loop quantum gravity (LQG), where the theory predicts that not just matter, but also space itself has an atomic structure.

New Theories / Re: Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome (POIS)

Final Panic,

I read your post some month ago and I was inspired by it ;  It was for me one of  many evidence that helps me consider the things under an other angle. Great that something in your life helped you with your POIS ; Happiness is a great remedy against anxiety. With a bit of training it's possible to turn our imagination into positive thinking instead of worrying ; Neuroplasicity is an amazing thing.
