    If I froze time, light speed is defined at the speed light goes in a vacuum, is it not? So if I froze time the speed of light would be zero, if I walked forward I would go faster than the speed of light and go back in time right? Or... what would happen? Or would nothing happen.... as it is...

    "In the new study, researchers bring together one of physics' most venerable set of equations – those of James Clerk’s Maxwell’s famous theory of light – with one of the hot topics in modern solid-state physics: the quantum spin Hall effect and topological insulators." Full Article Here

    I was reading up on the stern gerlach experiment again, and I don't understand why this couldn't have just been understood as a classical nonholonomic situation. I know this is a specialized seemingly unknown description to most people, but I'm not really asking for the "right" answer here, so...
  5. Science and Technology
    I'm quite passionate about science, (more specifically about biology mwaha). And I was wondering of there were some other people over here who have a passion for a specific part of science (or for science as a whole), and would like to make it known and explain a bit about it :) I'm talking...
  6. Science and Technology
    This could just as well fit in the philosophy and critical thinking category, but, do you think about how odd this cosmos, it's existence, and therefore our existence as parts of the cosmos, really is in reality? Think about it for a moment. There was either always something with no beginning or...
  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I was just wondering, how do you INFJ's approach school and learning in general? What are your best subjects, and how do you learn them? Just tell me what you think of the subject, how well you do, how you learn, etc. If you can't think of anything, refer to the questions below each subject to...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I was just wondering, how do you INFP's approach school and learning in general? What are your best subjects, and how do you learn them? Just tell me what you think of the subject, how well you do, how you learn, etc. If you can't think of anything, refer to the questions below each subject to...
  9. Cognitive Functions
    I was wondering if certain cognitive functions are associated with being good/bad at different school subjects, since the functions are associated with different skills in general (Se is usually good at sports, Te is argumentative, etc.) I, for one, am a boss at chemistry, but I SUCK at...
  10. Education & Career Talk
    I apologize if my thoughts are scattered, its difficult for me to write down my thoughts/feelings in a coherent manner. My interest in engineering/theoretical physics has prompted me to study engineering when i go to university (engineering physics to be specific). And being an INFP i was...

    DUD-DUD-DURUD-DURAAAH! Go search "Doc Schuster" on Youtube. OH. MY. GOD. It's like listening to your physics-mastermind-half! :laughing:
  12. Intro
    Hello! I'm in the 11th grade and about 5 months ago I was introduced to MBTI, which is sometimes fun because I can connect to people who share similar thought processes and problems to the ones I have. My main interests are Physics, Mathematics, Psychology, and Technology (Not just computers...
  13. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So, last night I was watching this thing on NASA and their Office of Planetary Protection. I found it comforting, intriguing and amusing. Such off the wall ideas existing such a well funded, socially acceptable form? It got me thinking. There are appear to be a growing number of INTPs who study...
  14. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So I wrote as I thought, I sourced nothing, so forgive me if my facts are a little wrong. The main focus here is the philosophy of 'my verse' not the factual evidence and whatnot. I just want to put my thoughts out there and perhaps debate with some other free thinkers. :) Troll free.... adult...
  15. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Hello My fellow Personality Cafe members. I'm new here, and this is my first post. This is my story. All I'm trying to accomplish is to succeed in my life. [Before we begin let me say that I took the MBTI test first time around 3 years ago with the aid of a professional career consultant at my...

    I guess a little background might be the best thing to start with: I'm 17 and doing my A levels at home (English literature, History, Religious studies and Law) due to an ongoing illness. I took these four A levels as I wanted something reasonably easy, but something to keep me working due...
  17. Science and Technology
    Pre-note: I realize now the title of this thread is not quite what I wanted it to be but I can't edit it so whatever lol. It was created when I was originally going to create this thread to see only if hydrogen should be a halogen or alkali metal only until I later on discovered the argument for...

    The discussion of what is a "hard science" and what is a "soft science" has existed for probably as long as science itself has existed. As a psychology B.A. who had many close, physics major friends in college, I have participated in this discussion more times than I could count. There is...
  19. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'm a junior in high school and I'm fairly certain that I'm going to major in a science. I love physics, but I can't decide on theoretical or experimental. Which do you think would be a better fit for an INTP? It kind of sucks that math is my weakest subject when I'm obsessed with science...

    This seems like the appropriate place to put this. BBC News - Speed-of-light experiments give baffling result at Cern It seems that and experiment using neutrinos at CERN has produced the baffling result of making them go beyond the speed of light. "In the course of doing the experiments, the...
