Question by §Guru Pathik§: What year in college can I take theoretical physics, and how often will I see these words?
Einstein’s outlook on “Reality”
“The Measurement Problem”
We are all one
Life greatest illusion-separation and self
Sacred Geometry
Da Vinci
Astral Projection
“Junk DNA”
9 dimensions
11 dimensions

ODU, is where I’m going , And I’m 17, if that’s relevant.

BQ: If I take theology, ( if you can’t tell I like learning about this stuff) will it be like the Religion and Spirituality( constant calling out and arguing), more than likely a theology professor would be an atheist right? ( I’d prefer to get a professor like Alan Watts ) Would he call me out if he found out I wasn’t atheist? I’m not a fundamental theist , but would I be stuck in a room full of atheists? I have atheist friends , but I’d hate to have to be silent just to avoid arguing.

Or opposite, would I get a religious teacher who would call me out for not being a fundamental theist?

BQ 2 : Which Could I take further ?
A: Major: Engineering, Minor: Theoretical physics
B: Major: Theoretical physics Minor: Engineering

BQ 3: Based of the list of words , what classes should I take?

BQ 4: As I said I’m 17, I was very passive in primary and secondary schools ( I’m really smart when I want to be, but if its something I’m not interested in, I’m lazy , and my grades will show) Going through the motions of my high school years I have cumulative 3.4 GPA, but If I didn’t study it or were apathetic about it in high school, would I be a complete noob in theoretical physics and quatum physics?.

When I was younger I had no interest in most school subjects whatsoever , but now I do.
Ok, thanks I probably was confused by some words of Michio Kaku pertaining to theoretical physics and Spinoza.

If choosing to go with either a major in Engineering or TP, I would suggest you take Engineering. The marketability and demand of just about any engineering degree is already known to be higher than average, where as TP is a bit more obscure as it is based around theory.

Once you are in college, you can no longer have the mindset of “well this is boring!” and tune out like you can in most of high school. If you are taking on a degree in any engineering, which is widely known to be very math-intense and demanding of your attention, you will need to be “interested” or you WILL fall behind. And as a previous engineering student I can assure you, you will have lecture upon lecture about subjects which will NOT peak any of your interests unless you are oddly passionate about calculus limits, derivatives, or the diameter of a sewage pipe.
I have no idea about your questions about that list of what I assume to be your interests.
Good luck in school.

Question by titacabreros: Russia has often been called “a riddle, a mystery, and an enigma.” So, what do you think of Russia?
If I am not mistaken it was Sir Winston Churchill who said that “Russia is a riddle, wrapped in mystery, inside an enigma.” The history of Russia, from its interesting beginning, then in the murders of two brothers, to the Tatars invasion, to the tsars (which means emperor and a sort of a copy of the Caesars in ancient Rome) and its modern world power position, has been a fascinating subject, full of twists and historical and religious significance. So, what do you think of Russia? Have you visited Moscow or its environs? Would you tell me your feelings about this vast country and its awesome people?

Best answer:

Answer by Grandpa Homer : ) 70 – Not out
Russia is riddle + mystery + enigma
just like Churchill
who called himself a ‘believer in democracy’
while remaining a ‘shameless imperialst (riddle + mystery + enigma)
who had the ‘character’ & ‘culture’ (?)
to call the saintly world-teacher Mahatma Gandi
‘a falf-naked fakir.’ (fakir : beggar)

Question by Kayren: How often is Hypnotherapy used in high profile criminal cases?
How often is hypnotherapy used in high profile criminal cases and does it help the defendant? How effect is it toward helping a defendant? Are there any list of criminals that have used hypnotherapy or criminal cases where it has been used and been effective?

Best answer:

Answer by fr_chuck
I don’t know of any cases using Hypnotherapy, I have heard of some using hypnosis from a licensed medical professional.

But in general the results are not allowed in court and it has little if any value.

Question by Beg For It: SCIENCE PHYSICS QUESTION: Why is motion often blurred in pictures?
What is the difference between kicking a football and a brick?
Explain how gravity and air resistance affect falling objects?

PS. if u can’t answer all the questions then the explanation of: ‘ Why is motion often blurred in pictures? ‘ will be okay, but if u answers all the questions u will get best answer.
Thanks in advanced!

Answer by wjllope
cameras have a shutter speed. i.e. they colelct light for a fraction of a second (~1/60th). if the object is moving fast enough, the picture is blurred by the motion of the object during the time the shutter was open. one needs a faster shutter speed in those cases…

kicking a football doesn’t hurt as much, as the ball is compressible. this also gives it some additional speed via the trampoline effect. if the football and brick were the same shape and mass, and were both launched at the same angle and initial speed, then they would go the same distance over the same path (ignoring possible small effects from the different air resistances from the air flow over their different surfaces).
but you can kick a football faster and higher, well, because they’re pretty much made for kicking. bricks aren’t. *ouch*

air resistance is a sort of friction that opposes gravity. the force due to drag goes roughly like the drag constant, C, times the speed of the object squared. for an object that is falling, the force due to gravity points down, while the (speed-dependent) drag force points up.
at the point where the gravity force down and the drag force up become equal, then the falling object has reached its terminal velocity. all forces then balance, and there is no more acceleration. the speed is constant at that point
