Question by stonesfan_17: What could you do with a double major in computer science and physics/aerospace engineering?
Right now I’m in my second semester of my computer science degree. During these 2 semesters I’ve had to do research for my english comp class. From this research I have noticed I am greatly interested in AI programming and space type topics.

So just out of curiosity I’m trying to find out some information on how a double major in either physics or aerospace engineering would bring me closer to this field of work. Mainly the goal would be NASA, which seems obvious for this type of work.

At this time physics seems to be the most practical considering I already have to take around 15 credit hours of science classes (physics can be used for this) for my computer science degree so that would be easy to turn into a BS physics degree. On the other hand aerospace engineering seems like it would be more of an eye catcher on a resume. The only down side to this would be having to transferring schools since my current one does not offer a degree in it.

So is this career path worthwhile? Will a double major help in securing a job or is it just a time/money sink? And will the degrees even work together?(I know designing software for an aerospace system would benefit from that degree…but would you actually put the knowledge to good use instead of just using it as background knowledge for understanding the requirements for the software)

Basically my education path can take 3 routes by this:

A: Complete computer science degree and be done with it. Most likely with a mathematics or physics minor.

B: Computer science degree + physics degree.

C: Computer science degree + physics minor, then transfer schools for an aerospace degree(assuming enough credits transfer and the degree can be gotta in an additional 1-2 years).

Answer by Andy
I would keep on the Computer Science / Engineering route and you’ll do very well!

With that background you could work with me…
I work on GPS space systems for a large defense contractor. All our electronic systems are software driven. To do this job you must know both fields to excel. The age where you could specialize in hardware or software are over, to make it today you have to be a jack of all things geeky.

While you are at it get a Management Graduate degree and you’ll be very successful if you have ambition!

Question by Black Christian Scientologist: How could the Hindu Ancients know what Modern Science has just recently determined without instruments?
The Ancient Hindu prophets allegedly wrote that the Earth rests on the backs of four elephants, which stand on the back of a giant turtle, which itself stands on nothing but mud.

These were people who would have to explain what they had determined about the universe in a form that the people of their time would understand.

The elephant was their strongest beast of burden. Therefore they represented some mighty supporting force. Elephants are sentient; that they would consent to stand on a turtle’s back without wandering off implied that something unimaginable (since they are not depicted as being tied up with rope or something) was keeping them in place.

The turtle might be tough enough to support four elephants on its shell and four legs.
It stands in mud which consists of particles fine beyond Human ken to perceive.
The turtle stands on four legs.

Modern Nuclear Physics has said that all existence rests on or consists of Four Entities, which are the Strong Force, the Weak Force. Electromagnetism, and Gravity. These themselves consist of something too fine to be determined by current theory and technology.

The Four Legs of the Four Elephants makes sixteen legs in all.

The Three Generations of Matter- what everything is made up of- consists of:

SIX types of Quarks, EIGHT types of Leptons, and FOUR types of Bosons.

They aren’t evenly distributed among the Four Beasts, but maybe that was as close as the Ancients could get. (Always presuming, of course, that our infallible Modern science can NEVER be wrong!)

Was there a better way for the Ancient Prophets to have explained this?
Don Juan Matus said when Carlos Castaneda showed him the Tibetan Book of the Dead, that their Lamas must have decided that it didn’t matter what they said, so they wrote up a load of nonsense that wasn’t true, because everyone has to *see* for themselves.

One might ask what use Ancients might have of Nuclear Physics.

. SCIENTOLOGY AXIOMS 1-12. L. Ron Hubbard

Life is basically a Static.
Definition: a Life Static has no mass, no motion,
no wavelength, no location in space or in time.
It has the ability to postulate and to perceive.
2. The Static is capable of Considerations, Postulates, and Opinions.
3. Space, Energy, Objects. Form and Time are the result of Considerations
made and/or agreed upon or not by the Static,
and are perceived solely because the Static considers that it can perceive them.
4. Space is a Viewpoint of Dimension.
5. Energy consists of postulated particles in Space.
6. Objects consist of grouped particles and solids.
7. Time is basically a postulate that Space and particles will persist.
8. The apparency of Time is the change of position of particles in space.
9. Change is the primary manifestation of Time.
10. The Highest Purpose in this Universe is the Creation of an Effect.


(a) AS-IS-NESS is the condition of immediate creation without persistence,
and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation
and the moment of destruction, and is different from other considerations
in that it does not contain survival.
(b) ALTER-IS-NESS is the consideration which introduces change
and therefore time and persistence, into an AS-IS-NESS
to obtain persistency.
(c) IS-NESS is an apparency of existence brought about
by the continuous alteration of an AS-IS-NESS.
This is called, when agreed upon, Reality.
(d) NOT-IS-NESS is the effort to handle IS-NESS
by reducing its condition through the use of force.
It is an apparency and cannot entirely vanquish an IS-NESS.
12. The Primary Condition of any Universe is that
two Spaces, Energies, or Objects must not occupy the same Space.
When this condition is violated (Perfect Duplicate)
the Apparency of any Universe or any part thereof is nulled.

(I had originally thought to leave out this concept that also fits into the Four Fundamental Forces Theory that I tried to the “Turtle.”) Well, if you want to multiply five “Big Macs” to feed 5,000 men (besides women and kids), transform water to wine, and instantly heal illnesses and maimed limbs, you would need to know something on this at least this level- don’t you think?

Answer by JESUS IS GOD
The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with a word him that is weary.
Morning by morning he wakens, he wakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious, I turned not backward.
I gave my back to the smiters,
and my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard;
I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Question by never_gone_only_me: what name could i use? and which is he, alchemist or occultist?
it’s a story about a guy who’s an alchemist/occultist. what name could i use for him? I like the name Edward… does that fit? and he’s travelling with his 2 years younger brother, who isn’t ‘magic’ like him… what could i name the brother? and what could Edward’s girlfriend be named? and… last question, really, what is the difference between alchemy and occult?
or something besides ‘occult’, i just found out it’s sorta different. what else is along the lines of alchemy?
might i add that king_of_hyrule is very wrong. is NOT a rip. first off, i picked the name edward cuz i know someone im basing this on. OF COURSE HE IS GOING TO LIKE A GIRL, just about every guy on the planet does. and who else does he travel with, his cousin? i don’t care how they’re related, but they’re related! going by himself would be idiotic, he’d die and no one would know it, and he’d be talking to himself a lot. and who the heck is Winry? all i’m asking is what could the brothers/cousins’ names be, the girlfriend’s name be, and what could the guy and girl be, something relating to magic.
yes… i aspire to be an author… but right now, i’m fourteen. i’m not so worried about that right now.
the ‘magic’ brother is a hot headed guy who hates to think first and is all for the action. the brother is always forever getting him out of trouble. the girl is sweet, and really good at the magic thing, she’s suffering the loss of her little brother.

i think this is in a sort of modernish/mideval time… i don’t really know much. it’s like, not in the USA but more of a time-of-believing-in-magic place.
king_of_hyrule: why am I getting mad at YOU? because u INSULTED me, psycho! and that usually generates anger, btw. if u want to misenterpret my story, fine, be that way, don’t answer then. it DOES NOT already exist, i just phrased it wrong, so u jumped to conclusions. it is about 2 dudes who are brothers, one does magic one doesn’t, who kidnapped a girl who’s also good at the magic, and the magic guy falls in love with her. that is not like fma.

Best answer:

Answer by king_of_hyrule
This sounds like a ripoff of Fullmetal Alchemist. The main character is an alchemist named Edward who travels with his little borther named Alphonse. And there’s a girl he likes named Winry. Alchemy is just ancient chemistry with spiritual elements and the occult is all spiritual rituals and what-not.

*EDIT* Response to ASKER’s EDIT
I don’t know why you are getting mad at me you psycho. You’re the one crafting a story that already exists.

Why don’t we review you b1tch, I didn’t call you a psycho until after you acted all b1tchy when I so graciously revealed to you, based on the information YOU gave, that such a yarn already existed, and it is called FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST. WTF is wrong with you?!

Question by Sara: Could a tree have consciousness, at a slower vibration?
Do you think that since God also made trees, He put into them some form of consciousness, at least to be conscious of the need for water, the changing of the seasons, the wind and the cold and the storm?
Could they be operating at a slower vibration than higher life forms, so that they do not catch anything except major events, whereas a human being is faster and aware of almost everything that happens?

Best answer:

Answer by God’s little retard
Trees are trees

Wouldn’t it be cruel to give them consciences?

Then again, God is pretty cruel.

Question by marcin p: could the moon be responsible for human consciousness?
bare with me here, this might seem little far out.

First off, our moon is really big considering the size of the earth and therefor has a significant amount of gravity. So the moon is pulling up on us a little bit every time the earth rotates.

now, gravity effects everything, even on the quantum scale. So if the moons gravity shifts every single particle on earth just a tiny tiny bit, those particles gain a tiny tiny bit of kinetic energy.

here’s the kicker: when the particles return to their original state that kinetic energy becomes stored as potential energy.
my question is, where does all that energy go?

i’m saying maybe that stored potential energy is the fuel of our consciousness. maybe the moon is what makes us think!

now, if this were true, that means ‘intelligent life’ elsewhere would not only need H2O and a livable climate to progress, but also a gargantuan moon like our own. so maybe we really are alone in the universe!
alright, i know it’s a bit silly man, but it’s hypothetical… especially with all the things we don’t know about the universe (including the source of our rational thought).. which is what the question is really asking.

however, i suppose this would work out better in the philosophy section eh?

Best answer:

Answer by rufsketch1
ummm. no. i’m pretty sure potential energy has nothing to do with our conciousness.

there isn’t anything potential about our conciousness, it’s constantly releasing energy.

if what you’re saying is right, then our minds would be feeding off of potential energy. which means that when the moon comes back around, nothing would move again because it has no more potential energy…

and why would we need to run on potential energy, when glucose works perfectly fine?

Question by Artisticat: If a NECROMANCER were real, or even asking about them in books and games, what GOOD could they bring?
I’ve only read of the destruction they can bring, and I am unsure if there is any good that could come from necromancy.
Xenon and Romantic… That’s not exactly answering the question. You fail. :( Thanks though.

Best answer:

Answer by XenonVortex BlackOp Death Eater
Usually they’re portrayed as evil sorcerers who do all kinds of creepy dark magic like raising dead corpses and that sort of stuff. By definition, a necromancer is usually involved in dark magic, so I’m not sure how there could be a “good” necromancer.


Oh really? Well, then excuse me, I’ll try again if that wasn’t good enough. All I’m saying is that it’s described as the “blackest of black arts”, so nothing good would really come out of it. Unless, they summon spirits to give messages to people. And to be fair to Romantic and I, your question is kind of confusing. Not all necromancers are destructive, some of them make a profession out of communicating with summoned spirits and that sort of thing.

Question by vemberajil: Could it Be possible to make a Bachelor science degree of physic the freschman year ?
I would like to skip all my undegraduate intermediate grade and to make a Bsc Physic at my Freschman year How could I ?
I just also need and example of someone who also already made it or how to make it
Please SOS !

Best answer:

Answer by Philip J
Doogie Howser; but that was premed. In physics, it should be a snap for someone of that caliber. If you sailed thru high school in one semester, a BS in one years shouldn’t be impossible. The key is to know it all from independent study before your enroll.
