I do listen to what Roger says. That doe...Matthew, <br />I do listen to what Roger says. That does not mean I always agree with him. <br /><br /> As to your map analogy, I never did say a map is the territory. I will say that a map that does not describe any territory is useless. Spacetime describes a block universe with only a single block in it where nothing moves or does anything. This does not in any way resemble our universe we live in, and I can prove it to be silly just because I can demonstrate that things do not happen at the same time just by typing these words to you on the screen. If you read them, you know that that sentences are sequential in nature, and if there is a sequence of any kind, you do not have a universe with spacetime. Math is also impossible in space time since there are no operations possible in timeless arenas. Math is a manipulation of quantities using operations. It requires process, there is no instant anything in reality or physics. <br /><br /> Why you invoke Zeno is beyond me. 'Smart people' didn't actually didn't move beyond him, as plenty of 'smart people' to this day foul themselves in science and mathematics journals daily quacking about paradoxes as 'design features'.<br /><br /> In fact, if a person actually was smart, they would realize Zeno was using the concept of paradox to teach a lesson: There are no paradoxes in reality, only in faulty assumptions, reasoning, logic, or math. If your initial assumptions or premises are incorrect, you get a paradox. If you notice, infinity plays a large part in all the paradoxes of Zeno (and Einstein). Think it through, the paradox is actually the infinity itself, it isn't real, it is not truly measurable though you can wrap it up in words, and is ridiculous when you try to encompass it in any kind of calculation in a set amount of time, being that doing an unending process (no matter how quickly) of any kind would take an infinite amount of time. The flaw of the assumption no one usually spots is: Zeno admits you can travel half a distance in his premise setting up his paradox. The moment you confront the fact that even moving half of a distance is possible, so movement over a distance is openly declared as possible, possible, then it follows moving the whole distance is also possible, and you have resolved the paradox: to even entertain an infinity in a finite process, you in effect contradict yourself. If the length of time is finite, so is the process. You can not intermingle the finite and the infinite logically, physically, or mathematically, as there is no ratio possible between them. Injecting an unending number of steps into any finite process effectively stops the process, and any half competent first year programming student can tell you this is a big no-no. Why mathematicians and physicists who should know better do it and think they can succeed is a lovely illustration of how stupid smart get when they confuse the memorization of countless bad ideas with understanding of which ideas are actually any good. <br /><br /> Outdated math my ass. All math is reason's bitch. Calculation is utterly useless when the question is isn't even wrong.

The map is not the territory. Zeno is what smart people moved beyond with numerical methods. The Kantian "noumenal" may never be directly described. It's just silly mathematicians that get caught in logical paradoxes because they use outdated math. <br /><br />We just tolerate the Aspies but no one thinks they are <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i81npoIweG0" rel="nofollow">actually smart</a>: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jD2PdnayiM" rel="nofollow">Numerical Methods Already Unified Physics</a>Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-68717922358526090182016-02-02T21:34:32.100-08:002016-02-02T21:34:32.100-08:00Is there any movement possible in spacetime? No. Y... Is there any movement possible in spacetime? No. You have already employed your time metric (badly) as a fourth spatial dimension (time is not space or geometry). Unless you wish to screw with meta-time, literally nothing ever can happen (much less move, orbit, collide, or affect one another) in spacetime. Movement is not an illusion, neither is time, though it does appear that people who think so were just born an instant ago.<br /><br /><br /> How is a model which can not account for movement, an impulse to motion, or have more than a single mass be so useful for determining anything but how dysfunctional physics has become? <br /><br /> The basis of all physics is actually the study of motion in time and how those motions interact with various forces and other objects. All observation of the influence of gravity has ALWAYS been through motion, no motion no interaction, no interaction no observation of the effects of gravity.<br /><br /> Spacetime is at best a purely mathematical space which can describe at most one imaginary thing that can't move or start to move or interact with anything else...which also makes it utterly useless to predict things in a universe of countless objects where everything is moving.<br /><br /><br />Call me unimpressed.<br />CFTnoreply@blogger.com
