Is there zero connection between String Theory and the paranormal?

Discussion in 'Pseudoscience' started by Dennis Tate, Mar 17, 2021.

?

Does String Theory help to explain... but not necessarily debunk some aspects of the paranormal?

    I am sorry to say that you are wholly uninformed and completely wrong in your understanding of microtubules. Everyone who has even paid cursory attention to my posts knows that microtubules are not organisms but organelles that make up the heart of neural axons in the entire neural network, in addition to a host of other functional processes of data transfer, such as mitosis, and the cellular cytoskeleton including muscle movement, and cilia found in you lungs, respiratory tract and middle ear and of course the flagella that allows your sperm to swim a long way towards the egg for fertilization.

    To save you further embarrasement, I'll let you do your own research, unless you wish to remain ignorant on that important subject. You know the sub-forum where to find the info.

    If you had engaged me nicely, I would have been happy to provide you with anything you wanted to know about microtubules.
    Apparently you have not understood that I also do not believe in paranormal phenomena. I believe all observable and unobservable phenomena are natural phenomena. I just try to be more diplomatic in my answers to serious inquirers.
    Where have you been all this time?
    Again I beg to differ. There is at least one part we engaged in and I was able to correct your utter misunderstanding of microtubules. For that alone I consider this a productive exchange.........

    I didn't say microtubules were organisms. I said you confused an organism for a microtubule. See, you can't even follow simple sentences.

    Bored of people like you.

    Only in your head. I guess that's enough for you.


    Since you're likely too lazy to go look, here's where you claimed an organism was a microtubule: http://sciforums.com/threads/are-we-made-in-gods-image.163113/page-18#post-3640400

    And no doubt you'll claim it again, proving you can't be taught, even with your own sources.

    FYI this subject would be better credited to keep inside your thread on the subject to avoid trollers trolling it

    i have watched electron microscope video of what your thread is about
    its F_cking AMAZING

    and kinda blew my mind

    like a child walking in to see a big top circus in full show performance for the first time

    i suggest you may be wasting your time bothering to reply to some people and in other threads

    Oh man, you are so far out in left field this is becoming hilarious. You are your own victim of an overly aggressive imagination. I never claimed microtubules are are alive. I was falsely accused of that by other posters in ill-considered jest.

    Those other posters, you know who you are!

    97 pages of microtubule descriptions and their functions and not one of them advances the idea that microtubules are alive or conscious. And then comes Vociferous and is going to set things straight once and for all time.

    Stop digging yourself deeper into an already deep hole .

    Thanks Rainbow.
    Advice well taken. I won't pursue this any further in this thread. Any further discussion on this subject will be in the appropriate thread.

    ''Paranormal activity'' can't be proven by using repeatable experiments. We can't ''recreate'' the conditions that would be necessary to prove paranormal activity firstly, let alone that it would have any connection to String Theory. How might you test your ''opinion?'' (Sorry if this has been asked, I didn't scroll through the entire thread.)

    Again, learn how to read simple English. I never said you claimed microtubules are alive. I said you conflated them with a living organism, here:
    E nucleofilum is an organism. But thanks for once again proving you're incapable of learning fairly simple science.

    And you must realize that, otherwise you wouldn't feel the need for all the defensive posturing.

    Deeper and deeper we go into the hole. Do you understand the meaning of this symbol "?" at the end of a sentence?
    Perhaps it is you who needs to learn some English.
    Enough of this drivel. You are becoming boring.

    So you admit that E nucleofilum is an organism?

    That was my reaction also. And the deeper you look the more interesting it becomes.

    So just like before, you won't answer a direct question, because you can't face the actual science. Have fun in your illiteracy.

    On the other hand the word "prove" is a rather strong term and the phrase "offer evidence for" allows for a much less strict set of expectations.

    Yes..... there are days and even weeks when it is nearly impossible for me to spend any serious amount of time online on discussion forums ......
    (one of those time periods is when I am setting up another possible campaign for public office here in Canada)??????

    For the record....I personally love it when a discussion goes off in a direction that some posters might discern as "thread hijacking"...... it is nearly impossible to give me the impression that somebody who is passionate about a somewhat related topic has hijacked any discussion that I began.

    (I am at work at the moment so I am technically am not supposed to be here for more than fifteen minutes...... but at least I can show up and toss in a quick reply or two or three)!

    In my opinion... the ability to be AMAZED... is a sign of truly understanding and comprehending the universe / multiverse that we are privileged to be alive within!

    Dr. Albert Einstein made statements about IMAGINATION that proved that he had an awesome grasp of living life in a state of continual amazement and curiosity!

    Yes.... I admit it.... E nucleofilum is by definition an "organism"....
    but my definition for the word "organism" applies not only here in four dimensional space - time where electromagnetism, gravity, weak and strong nuclear force are separate from each other but........

    ... has some sort of validity in fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth dimensional space time as well!

    That is certainly one of the nicest things that I was told this week...... Gracias!

    Oh... my somewhat similar reply in post number seventy five.... refers back to the quotation from page one post number one.

    Excellent point... I should have written five point three or five point four centuries.... and linked to the attempts by a number of people to talk Columbus out of on embarking on his expedition!

    (I think that it is relevant that in the year 1480 or so it is possible for one Pope with a dogmatic flat earth belief......
    to scare aspiring explorers like Colombus if.......
    the writings of Colombus or the intellectuals who agreed with him about the earth being round.......
    might be arrested)?!


    https://www.encyclopedia.com/people...d-conquerors-biographies/christopher-columbus

    What percentage of Europeans were "educated?"

    I submit a very, very, very ,very small percentage of Europeans were "educated" and back in those days it was pretty easy to get fifty or a hundred uneducated people together to organize a burning at the stake...... or something in some ways even worse perhaps .


    The following information was not well known for another century or two:

    This article is relevant because not everybody in Europe wanted to prepare a way for an Exodus of Jews from Europe at the time when the Spanish Inquisition on the Jewish people would begin to ramp up to full intensity.

    Plato, 480BC: "My conviction is that the Earth is a round body."
    Aristotle in 360BC proved the Earth was round by showing that Southern constellations become more visible as you travel South, and the Earth's shadow on the Moon during a lunar eclipse is round.
    Archimedes around 240BC wrote that "The surface of any fluid at rest is the surface of a sphere whose centre is the same as that of the Earth."

    So you're off by about 2000 years.
    1) "Burnings at the stake" were organized by governments, and thus were commanded by the more educated people of the time - judges and clerics.
    2) Today you could get 50 or 100 people in the US to say that the Earth is flat. There are plenty of examples of this. Being able to find 100 people who believe an outlandish thing means next to nothing,

    Good points... thank you for that post ..... but....... were the Jewish people of the decade before Colombus sailed toward the "West Indies" at all worried that the time might come when they might need to make another "Exodus" out of Roman Catholic Europe?

    Was Colombus, (a Jew)... somewhat motivated to find a faster route to the "West Indies?"

    Was his level of motivation sufficient to overcome what might have been a valid fear of what some people would want to do to him even before he and his crew sailed.
