Test your knowledge of the Arctic seas, basins and shelfs in this 100 piece puzzle i made of a map Uniquorn posted. Hope it works.

Nifty !!!!

I might suggest cross-posting this to Arctic Maps:

Nature is beautiful but not mystical

   In this thread, I want to discuss what in my view is the true difference between "classical" and "quantum" correlations and why "stronger-than-quantum" correlations are never observed in Nature. I have worked on this question for the past eleven years, starting with a short paper in 2007 and culminating in this latest: http://rsos.royalsocietypublishing.org/ ... 5/5/180526.
   

So, then, what do the so-called Bell-test experiments test? Do they not distinguish the "quantum" correlations from "classical" correlations? Well, not quite. The results of the above paper suggest that when certain correlations in the Bell-test experiments are seen to exceed the absolute bound of 2 on the Bell-CHSH inequality, then those correlations stem from those aspects of spacetime geometry and topology that depend on the non-commutative quaternionic or octonionic numbers. If, instead, they depended on the commutative real or complex numbers, then for those correlations the absolute bound of 2 on the Bell-CHSH inequality would not be exceeded. That is all there is to it. It is both beautiful and non-mystical. There is no such thing as irreducible randomness, non-reality, "quantum" spooky-action-at-a-distance, non-signaling non-locality, or any other kind of silly voodoo in Nature. Nature is beautiful but not mystical.
(my font messing)
Also, he proposes a very simple experiment, costing no more than a few hundred thousand dollars, to test it. Sadhguru might like it, geometry/topology is very important to him .

21st Century Tribes

Majority of the voter population is a tribe member. No matter what their leadership do - tribe defend&protect them&that.
No democracy that way. Words are cheap, tribe alters their meaning - so to make it short:
Quote
In a living democracy you should never take a stance, this is something we have forgotten. Right now, in the United States I think only about four to five percent of the people decide the election. The rest of the people are already fixed. A democracy means that you evaluate the stance you want to take every time. And that is never a permanent stance.

Inclusive Economics

Sadhguru: Interview with CNBC at the World Economic Forum, Davos, Switzerland, 2006.
Enabling the World, Huffington Post, 05/17/2010 04:15 pm ET Updated Dec 06, 2017:
Quote
For the first time, we are capable of addressing every human problem on this planet — nourishment, health, education, ecology - you name it, we can address it. We have the necessary resources, capabilities and technology for the very first time, but whether we will do it or not simply depends on how inclusive our experience of life is. If you stand here and experience this planet as yourself, I don’t have to tell you, “Take care of it.” Every human being would do their best. In our lives, if we do not do what we cannot do, that is not a problem, but if we do not do what we can do, that is a disaster. And right now, what we can do compared to what we could do 100 years ago is so different, so incredibly different, but what’s missing is an all-inclusive consciousness, an all-inclusive experience of life. If we truly have to create solutions that are relevant for all, an experience of absolute inclusiveness has to happen to humanity, particularly for the leadership. And this is possible.

Sadhguru, when he was asked about climate change, said in some interview (refering to some folks in California owning 2 Ferrari and one Tesla)  "you cannot curtail human aspirations, you can only curtail human population, the best thing is to curtail human population." Sadhguru talks about the nonexistent per capita eco- footprint of poor indian masses, but doesn't mention the co2- footprint of these californian folks owning 2 Ferrari and 1 Tesla :)



He made similar statements when he was asked about the material wealth of several gurus in some other interview. But if you cannot curtail human aspirations, then you cannot curtail human population, because procreation is one of the most urgent aspirations of all beings, right? The climate proplem is deeply rooted in excessive global economic inequality, that's a well researched fact. But still rich folks will defend their wealth and multiply their wealth, while telling the masses to curtail the population.

Imagine ten people and 10 loafs of bread:

1 person got 9 loafs of bread for himself and the other 9 got 1 loaf of bread altogether. Now that one person tells these 9 persons:

" You need to curtail your population, that's the best thing to do! We're all in this together, all equally responsible for the very same shit, so cut down your population!"

I tell you how this neat little story will end:

Extinction.

You cannot curtail human population, if you cannot curtail human aspirations and if you cannot curtail human aspirations, we are doomed. The wealthier someone is, the higher his ecological footprint and therefore his responsibility. Most children are born in poor countries, people there can't afford any financial pension ect, so their children are their only wealth. Economic inequality, the aspirations of a few at the cost of the many is at the root of (not just) climate change. Human society is not in social balance, so Nature is not in balance as well.

Sadhguru is also known as Jaggi Basudev:

"... Jaggi who was a low profile Guru shot to fame following his series in the popular weekly Ananda Vikatan titled ‘Athanaikum Aasaipadu’, which translates as, ‘desire for everything’. This is directly in contrast with the teachings of Buddha, which says, ‘desire is the root cause of all evil’. This series in Ananda Vikatan catapulted him to fame.  But he was yet to enter the power corridors..."

Hey ho ivica, thanks for the warm welcome :) "Bashing"? I just talked about some facts about Jaggi Basudev aka Sadhguru, things he said in his videos :) You call that "bashing"? And then you refer me to some place else showing beautiful pictures showing Jaggi Basudev and some children? Everyone can make pictures with children. I stick to the facts. Let's stick to what Sadhguru actually said:

" you cannot curtail human aspirations, you can only curtail human population, the best thing is to curtail human population."

See, this is Sadhguru in his own words. What's your take on that? It's ok to have 2 Ferrari and one Tesla (no chance to curtail such aspirations?), but it's not ok to have children? Btw, Sadhguru procreated, I didn't... You know, Sadhguru might be your guru or whatever, but he's not my guru...  :)

Well, I thought I'll comment on Sadhguru right were you refered to him. But he's not worth to open some thread, imo.

" However, your style reminds me somehow on tedious "Russia, ..." thread so I'm afraid I'll not have much time to participate. Good luck ."

Oh, Russia? I can asure you: I despise Putin just like I despise Trump and alike :) You are afraid you'll haven't much time to participate in our eyeopening discussion about Sadhguru? Well, your replies suited my needs already quite sufficiently, so thank you very much :)

Quote GretaThunberg:

"... You only talk about moving forward with the same bad ideas that got us into this mess, even when the only sensible thing to do is to pull the emergency brake. You are not mature enough to tell it like it is. Even that burdon you leave to us children. Our civilization is being sacrificed for the opportunity of a very small number of people to continue making enormous amounts of money. Our biosphere is being sacrificed so that rich people in countries like mine can live in luxury. It is the suffering of the many wich pay for the wealth of the few... You are saying that you love your children above all else, yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes..."

Update on anti-spookiness

While waiting for JC's classical experiment to be funded and done this happened:
Optomechanical Bell Test, Phys. Rev. Lett. 121, 220404 – Published 29 November 2018

Joy Christian comments on it, Mon Dec 17, 2018:
Quote
...
That is exactly what I have argued for the past eleven years. See, e.g., https://www.academia.edu/24765800/Proposed_Macroscopic_Test_of_the_Physical_Relevance_of_Bells_Theorem. The key phrase of the authors here is the following:

"... without the need for a quantum description of our experiment."

What this means is that we have a definitive experimental proof --- published in PRL --- that Bell-type inequalities can be "violated" by purely classical, macroscopic systems!!!
...

Nature is beautiful isn't it .

The Groundhog Has Spoken
https://www.cnn.com/travel/amp/groundhog-day-punxsutawney-phil-prediction/index.html

Punxsutawney Phil predicts spring will come early. Don't get too excited, though -- he's usually wrong.

... In the past decade, Phil has predicted a longer winter seven times and an early spring three times. He was only right about 40% of the time, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which says the groundhog shows "no predictive skill."

Quote
Radio Announcer: Okay campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties cause its cold out there ..

Phil: "This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather."

What Makes Some People Creative Thinkers and Others Analytical?
https://medicalxpress.com/news/2019-02-people-creative-thinkers-analytical.html



Are you a more creative or analytical thinker?

Analytical thinkers are particularly good at solving clear-cut problems by methodically working through the possibilities. Creative thinkers are more likely to have flashes of insight, or "aha moments," that can leapfrog over many steps of thinking to solve problems that are fuzzy or complex.

A new brain-imaging study from Drexel University's Creativity Research Lab reveals that the different "cognitive styles" of creative and analytical thinkers are due to fundamental differences in their brain activity that can be observed even when people are not working on a problem.

Analysts showed higher levels of activity in their frontal lobes. Insightfuls showed more activity in posterior brain areas, specifically, the temporal and parietal lobes.

A large body of research has shown that the frontal lobe plays a key role in organizing thought and behavior by inhibiting and controlling other parts of the brain. Analysts' high frontal-lobe activity is consistent with their methodical approach to solving the anagrams.

Past research also shows that when frontal-lobe activity is reduced, for example by damage or aging, thinking can become less focused and organized. The lower frontal-lobe activity of the Insightfuls supports a theory that creative insights occur when reduced mental focus allows unconsciously formed patterns or ideas to pop into awareness as "aha moments."
