Oops! I left out the link.
Having spent several years of my working life on (landfill) sites wearing high viz clothing - I can add the following anecdotal evidence. Wasps "prefer" to bother people in orange rather than yellow high viz, whilst most other bugs and biting insects prefer yellow.
In general wasps will sting if you are competing for their food or are disturbing their nest.
There are plenty of things that predate wasps. Unlikely as it sounds, in the UK the main predator is the badger as they destroy entire nests for the comb. Weasels, stoats, blackbirds, magpies (and several other birds) are also known to nibble on the little blighters. I would expect that there are insects and spiders also partial to the odd wasp or two. I agree that none of these are noted for being orange...
Spacetime in no way explains aether. Spacetime itself, besides being a silly notion (within a stupid theory),
Bamboo in its natural state is pretty remarkable. Technically a grass, bamboo can grow to be 130 ft tall and up to a foot in diameter, and it thrives in a variety of climates. It grows easily and quickly, with some species growing as much as 1-3 feet a day. Most varieties grow about 2 inches a day, and will reach their full height within one growing season.Bamboo is a grass?
Actual Infinity is not a mathematical quantity and it also does not exist in the real world. So I think actual infinity is impossible accept as a mental concept.
I will certainly agree that Infinity is not a quantity. But I don't see that it necessarily follows then that no physical thing can be infinite (even if it is true that nothing is infinite, which I am not sure of).
You have converted the problem to a finite problem and then proceeded to work out the percentages. This is correct; the paradox disappears as soon as you switch to a finite universe. Thatís the solution.I don't think this is a reasonable proof. I object to the step going from "So all things happen an infinite number of times." to "So all things are equally likely." The set of all integers is countably infinite. The set of all multiples of 3 is countable infinite, and is the same countable infinity as the set of all multiples of 300. However, it is 100 times more likely, when selecting a number at random, that the number is a multiple of 3 as it is a multiple of 300.
No the Hillbert Hotel cannot exist in the world as I know it, but it does establish that infinity has room to expand.
imaginary numbers were conceived of far before there were uses for them in science and now they are indispensable...
Einsteinism is a science cult & has given us a worldwide science-mafia that controls mainstream funding universities magazines institutions & research -- non-conforming scientists are squeezed out, lose their jobs, lose their funding, lose access to publishing in mainstream magazines. But the Einsteinian dark age will soon end, & aether will regain its rightful place, its power & its glory, for ever & ever. Amen.
