About 5 years ago I had a terrible bout of depression, my doctor put me on cipralex and I was ok after 3 months and doctor told me I could stop.
Recently in the last month or so, my depression has returned and now my doctor has put me on Wellbutrin XL 150mg. I feel like a zombie but that is ok because I have only been taking it for a week and it takes a while to work.
My question is : should I continue the Wellbutrin and hope it works, or should I go back to Cipralex because I know that did work for me....
I have a friend who is very thin, but she keeps telling me she is fat and she goes to gym every day and feels guilty when she doesnt go. She tells me she is FAT with a capital F and really she is no more than skin and bone. I dont want to tell her that she is anorexic because that might end our friendship so I need to help her in another way, please tell me what to do I am so worried about her cos she hardly eats and hardly sleeps and is always complaining that she is chubby and fat and it breaks my heart into a million pieces.
I used google mail for the first time last week, and honestly I have no idea what the hype is. It lost some of my mails after i clicked on them and is so hard to use and so confusing that I just left it and went back to hotmail.
Now I am no computer newbie, I have been programming software for 10 years, so its not a 'user' issue in my eyes.
I recently picked up singing, and since I'm a beginner all the breathing techniques make me light headed, my teacher says this is normal for beginners. How do I help myself feel better cos i feel pretty dizzy right now.
I tend to agree with Hawking, I think intelligent life out there would not be peaceful, just look at us!
He is right when he says we should just stay quite and hope nobody notices, cos if u think about it logically the more basic an organism is, then the more peaceful it is,and the more intelligent organisms get the more dangerous they become.
I hope if there is intelligent life out there, that they dont know we here.
I think the question says it all, but in other words I am asking if any forms of psychic phenomena are acknowledged by science as plausible...
I do hear the odd story of psychic'c cracking cases in police work, and I still don't know how John edwards does his thing, so personally I would not rule it out, but I would be pretty doubtful since I dont think anyone could do something really psychic like predicting lotto numbers or the world cup winner...
Supposed you have a right angled triangle with each of the smaller sides being 1 and the hypotonuse therefore being √2 (square root of 2).
the √2 is an irrational and forever repeating number, bound to go on for billions of centuries. There is not enough computers or paper on earth to actually store just this one number, yet a humble line of pythagorus is able to effortlessly depict it.
So how is it that a finite line can depict an irrational number? does that seem rational?
If history has taught me anything, it's this : Whenever human kind is faced with a barrier we eventually break through.
There are so many examples, including the sound barrier which no-one thought could be broken either.
As the kinetic energy and speed of an object increase, then so does its mass (E=mc2). This suggests that to go the speed of light would require infinite energy...
This does not make sense when you think about the fact that the universe expanded faster than the speed of light at the beginning of the big bang, so its been done before.
Also , if you could have an accelerating spaceship orbiting the solar system with frequent fuel topups, then why would it not go faster than light? and why would its thrusters stop producing enough energy to propell it a little faster each minute?
To me, personally, this just looks like another barrier that human kind is going to eventually break one day. And I don't mean bypass with wormholes, I mean we will take an object past the speed of light one day...
This is my theory of how scientists will be able to see even further into the past by using gravitational lensing in a new way.
OK, so we know that when you see a galaxy that is 2 billion LY away, you can deduce that you are seeing the galaxy as it was 2 billion years ago.
Now suppose you look the opposite way, IE 180 degrees from this galaxy and you find a massive black hole or something with ferocious gravity that is able to create a 360 degree gravitional lense.
Do you see where this is going? Now suppose that black hole is 1 billion LY away, and it is able to comfortably suck in the light rays from our observed galaxy and spit them out again straight back to us. But now these images are not how the galaxy was 2 billion years ago, these images are in fact how the galaxy was 3 billion years ago, hence we can see further into the past by using 360 degree gravitational lensing.
Here is a little bit of simple math to explain the concept....
-Light takes 2 Billion LY to reach earth from faraway galaxy -travels a further 1 billion LY to reach black hole and get bounced back -travels a further 1 billion LY to reach earth from the black hole - hence I think this makes it 3 billion LY since the last billion years of travel (towards earth) was the static picture of the galaxy 3 billion years ago...
Please correct me on the math if it is actually 4 billion, im not sure...
Now I'm not saying the way to do this is to find a galaxy and then look for a massive black hole directly opposite, in fact the best way would be a reversal of that process. Also the light would need to strike the black hole on its perimeter so that it doesnt get sucked in but rather spun around and shot out the other side, straight towards earth.
