Yikes! I think the answer is “as many as you want there to be.” In addition to the “Nancy Drew Mystery Stories,” which at least go to #170 as noted, there seems to be a “Nancy Drew, Girl Detective” series, a “Nancy Drew (All New) Girl Detective” series, and a “Nancy Drew Journal” series.

http://www.nancydrewsleuth.com/mysterystories.html “Still in print today are the classic Nancy Drew Mystery Stories (R)–volumes 1-56.” (Apparently, there have been updates to these: according to this web page, Nancy’s convertible was originally a roadster. I think the “yellow spine” books to which the website author alludes are the only ones I’ve ever read.)

This is not a complete list, but it should keep you busy for a while.

Question by Corey: Could some mystics answer this?
I know we can immerse ourself in experience, which is fine. I know we can try to understand concepts relating to the vibrational states and trying to undertsand the workings of god. I know we can appreciate beauty and take it with us. I can understand these things and their spiritual implications. But what does it mean to study the actualy physics here, the sciences here. How does that carry over..Sorry I’m new to this stuff. If I had to guess it seems, like we are understanding the creator, but now we are understanding we are a creator. Does the science stuff give us added ability to solidify the worlds we will manifest, and add the extra layers to give it more stability for others to inhabity?

Question by Angel: Why are there so many religions? Is this a possible answer?
What about ancient chinese religion way before Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism. Shinto, Taoism, and Confucianism, Egyptian religons, or any ancient pagan occult mystery religions for that matter? Before all these religions was a belief in a God of heaven, similar to that of the Hebrews. Nimrod was the one who began ancient mystery religions however.

All human religion since Nimrod is pagan and really all are one and lead to the same place with their claims of an immortal soul and among other things. HOWEVER, there are groups that will not conform to pagan religion. The irony though is that many of these groups have already adopted pagan ways an will conform eventually and all human religions will be one, with the help of the Jesuits and their secret societies. There is one group though that never will conform, here’s a hint: they don’t go to church sundays and they don’t believe in immortal souls.

No, I’m not a New Ager secretly hastening the NWO. This NWO will be the very image of Rome.. interestingly, the U.S. already has been copying ideas from Rome.. the NWO is coming… but do not fear, only choose a side.
You take God out of context when quoting about killing non-believers… when ever that happens, it’after those people were given a chance to repent.

Physics and Consciousness
by Alin S

Question by : a question that probably doesnt have an answer?
this is very interesting if you read it. but you probably wont understand it. because im not entirely sure how to ask it so you understand but here it goes.
i believe that consciousness is caused by interaction of the particles in the brain in an organized way. (every component of the brain is a part of the big system) (different systems will create different sensations) for example if you are hurt you feel a pain sensation. if something good happens to you you get a happy sensation. all these different sensations are different possible types of consciousness. we always associate things that are good for us in the real world i.e. winning money with a happy sensation and the opposite. but what if things that were good for us in the real world happened to give the conscious part of us a bad sensation. physics would force us to continue doing what we are doing but in the theoretical world of consciousness we would be in pain. turns out it didnt happen that way. the only explanation i can think of is that there is some kind of cosmic corespondent between “good” in the “real world” and good sensations that we get in the conscious world.

believe me, if you were me you would know exactly what im talking about but im hoping you can too.
and btw ive ruled out the possibility of god(s)
but what if a system that does work happens to give the observer a bad sensation anyway. you think well then the system would correct itself (like you would if you had a bad sensation so you have a good one but what if the bad sensation that the system is feeling isnt necessarily a trigger to do something about it?
thinking about it now, maybe a good sensation actually comes from the lack of need to make a change in the physical world.
like i said i dont know how to tell you what im talking about. reading your answers i know what you think im saying but you actually are understanding me wrongly. what weve got here is a failure to communicate. thats my fault
no… like i said any system that is able to make a computation is conscious… intelligence, artificial intelligence, dog’s brains, cats, flies, and anything like that. and because all of those work differently, even amongst themselves they create different types and LEVELS of consciousness. a dog sees the world very differently from us.
and it seems to me like you are saying that there can be consciousness without computation. let me ask you something have you been doing drugs lately?

Answer by Juicy
It’s simple actually. Action and re-action. We aren’t born knowing that winning money(as in your example) is a good thing. We learn the value of money, we learn reactions from the action.

Question by kmodacious: anyone who knows science (physics) please answer?
please answer these. i would very much appreciate it. oh..and the carrot (^) means power..like squared.

1. calculate the speed (in m/s) of a skateboarder who accelerates from the rest for 3 seconds down a ramp at an acceleration of 5 m/s^2.

2. Calculate the instantaneous speed of an apple that falls freely from a rest position and accelerates at 10 m/s^2 for 1.5 seconds.

3. An object is dropped from rest and falls freely. after 6 second, calculate its instantaneous speed, average speed, and distance fallen.

4. Calculate the instantaneous speed and distance fallen for an object that falls freely from rest for 8 seconds.

please and thank you!
i would really appreciate it.

Best answer:

Answer by wce626
22.5 m

After the 1.5 seconds, you mean? 15 m/s

It’s fallen 176.4m, its instantaneous speed is 58.8 and its average speed is 29.4 m/s

78.4 m/s and 313.6 m

b – the body will accelerate to the east
c – the body moves at constant velocity
d – the body remains at rest

4. A constant, resultant force acts on a body which can move freely in a straight line. Which of the following quantities remains constant?

Consider the combination series and parallel circuit shown here, where R1 = 5 Ω and R2 = 13 Ω.

here is the link to the circuit:


(a) What is the equivalent resistance of this part? In other words, what single resistance could replace this part of the circuit and not change the total current from the battery?

______ Ω
(b) What is the equivalent resistance of all the resistors? In other words, what single resistance could replace the whole circuit without changing the current from the battery?

______ Ω

Best answer:

Answer by bigbangs050695
When resistors in parallel, the sum of the resistance is given as such:

Sum=1/R(1)+1/R(2)+1/R(3) etc.

A reciprocal of this fraction is then done, and simplified if required. Here, if R1 = 5 Ω and R2 = 13 Ω, then the sum of these is:

(1/5)+(1/5) =2/5 a reciprocal of this should be taken, I.E, 5/2

This is our resistance value, I.E, 2.5 ohms.


We know the resistance of the parallel resistors is equal to 2.5 ohms. We also know (because we given it) that R2=13 ohms. Since we have effectively replaced our “R1″ resistors is parallel with a 2.5 ohm resistor, we can use the parallel rule. Where the resistance of all the resistors is equal to R(1)+R(2)+R(3)…etc.

This means that R(total)=20+2.5+30=52.5 Ohms.

Question by Miz T: Why do people who answer spirituality questions introduce their own dogma as though it were incontrovertible?
There have been a number of questions in the religion and spirituality realm from people seeking *information* on both spirituality and organized religions. Often, the answers not only don’t address the question, they attempt to proselytize for their own belief system.

Why is that?

Wouldn’t it make more sense to offer a community in which people can discuss, without fear of judgment, their personal concerns and beliefs?

Best answer:

Answer by Liberal Nemesis
Yes, I’ve seen some of that on all sides. We all need to be tolerant of others beliefs
