Maybe not?

It depends, do you understand that you live, and that then you die?
Does your kids matter for it?

Seems I'm out of tune, I see things you don't, and I can't stop it.

If it comes to you and your kids, versus someone else grabbing the food you actually need to survive. Would it matter what nationality they had?

I don't think so, do you?

Forget the ass***es 'deciding'. look at what you need to survive.

Let them sweep themselves in a flag, and good riddance to them.

We still have Internet.

When that is lost, you're lost too.
Communication.

You don't need to be a muscle builder for this.
You just need to be sane.

And believe that you matter.

Ah well. You consider it, for me it's simple. As I'm not entirely inside your crowd I handle it on my own. I define my limits, and my shortcomings.  But I won't kiss ass.

I really like this one, and if you think of it as 'everything' being 'superpositions' before a measurement it becomes a 'network' of relations, that fall out into a observer dependent reality of measurements. And as long as you find a way to define two objects colliding as being a measurement too you cover most I can think of for the moment. That means that we will be noticed as we disappear, by the 'universe', there will be changes in the relations of entanglements, as I don't see where, or how, you can limit them either. And it's a beautiful explanation for 'inertia' existing even when no 'gravitational potential' is measurable, acting on you, except that course change.
=

Actually, it also lights up the idea of 'Machs universe', although, before the measurement is 'done'.
And what defines that measurement then?

Time, isn't it?
==


That is, if you don't belong to the crowd thinking that consciousness is all?
Then that is 'time' too, I guess? :)

And a Big Bang can't have been there, no 'consciousness' you see.
Actually your parents didn't 'exist' before you did either. Unless you now define 'consciousness' as existing without you, and the moon too then?

Simple :)
Nooooo
=== =

Actually it is simple. Consciousness is what we use to experience the world, but you don't need that to 'collapse a wave function'. You just need time, and 'measurements'. The 'measurements' are 'change', which I translate into time.

It fits my questions about a vacuum too.

I'm not partial to the idea of me being the world. It's not simple. but change the definition of what a measurement should be seen as and I will be much happier.

And yes, it's a tentative first definition of what 'quantum gravity' could be.

Also I better point out that it question what a 'dimension' is. Which I'm stuck on too.

I  really like it as a 'network' of 'relations', unmeasured. No 'dimensions' at all, they are our inventions. Or 'SpaceTimes' if you like? and 'scales'.

That we find it so easy to explain in terms of 'geometries' is to me a result of a logic, it's not the sole truth of it, although it definitely fits 'SpaceTime'. It's a question of scales. And if I remember right Einstein himself wasn't too happy using geometry, he used algebra.

Apropos global warming. This one is very well written. After you read it you might see why I worry. Didn't think I would live to see it happening, but if this is correct we might be at a turning point. It all belongs to chaos mathematics and non linear systems 'wobbling'. Climate tipping point could be here 

I hope it's wrong.

I've been thinking of using that 'world mean temperature' and define it to the 'Baltic sea' solely. I guess it would boil :) Takes a lot of 'energy' to raise the temperature 1.5 C (approximately) over a whole Earth.

Ok then, not boil :)

Then again, The Baltic is a shallow sea, only some hundred meters deep. And the heat we're talking about is not solely stored in a atmosphere. a lot of has already been 'hidden' into oceans, and land. You have to count on that too.

"Each of the first six months of 2016 set a record as the warmest respective month globally in the modern temperature record, which dates to 1880, according to scientists at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

The six-month period from January to June was also the planet's warmest half-year on record, with an average temperature 1.3 degrees Celsius (2.4 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than the late nineteenth century."

And please stop arguing that this is a good thing. It won't make the planet 'greener', at some concentration, and even though you might, at some few places,see a green growth, there exist several studies proving the effect to be at a 'best case' temporary, disappearing as the CO2 concentration grows.
