    You are thinking slit/DBL slit experiment OR "Youngs experiment" correct? If so; You can do the experiment using bowling balls and still witness the same type of effect, albeit on a smaller visible/quantifiable scale. Due to their size/mass the changes are smaller but still present. I think. :eek:

    You guys need to start thinking in terms of error bars/sigmas for your philosophical discussions and throw out everything that doesn't have any significant effect

    The one who fails is you, go troll somewhere else because I don't really have any desire to waste my time on you.

    I'm sorry your analogy was bad. No need to start calling names because someone called ya on it.

    Anyone agree this should be in general nonsense? Anyways if we didnt have all these laws governing our universe or planet what would we be exactly?

    i'm not a very smart person and this may sound dumb to most of you. but at least it is somewhat entertaining.

    2 experiments that prove telepathy/mental connection.

    drive or walk around town. find a hot looking chick. now think of all the dirty things you would like to do to her. all the different positions you would use on her, be very explicit. now watch her reaction. does she start to look around? alot of times they do, just a little thing i've noticed while ogling women.

    second experiment.

    take a walk in the forest and take note of the life you see around you. all the birds and small animals. now go get a gun and try to find some animals to kill. they run and hide. i do believe they can "feel" your intent, just as the women can in the previous experiment.

    This is very good science. Did you consider putting up a two way mirror for these trials?

    I agree very much with this. I think mankind is too small and ignorant to even scratch the surface and I do not think we can as a species even realize the smallest of truths in this universe as we perceive it. I think we are a part of something (physically) much bigger and we are just too small and insignificant to really make any difference. I think we will be long gone before we can gain enough knowledge to pull out of this black hole to propagate on other planets.

    Our perception is what I think is flawed and falls in line with Einsteins quote you have there. What we are taught (especially at a young age) sticks to us if it makes sense at the time and we tend to look at that more then new ideas to further our knowledge base. Our perception of time for instance is significantly flawed. We make a measure of it but that only works here on this planet at a certain pull of gravity. It would be the wrong time on another planet.

    A fly see's us moving in slow motion because it's metabolism is so fast. A turtle see's us moving at the speed of light and cannot really train it's eye on us till we stop because we simply move too fast. The perception of time is different not only to these animals, but to planets, planet system etc.

    How are we to understand anything when we cannot even understand what is happening in our own back yard? We as a species are constantly speculating while moving forward hoping for the best. It is as simple as that.

    Nope, just your sniping skills you gained from BF3.

    The internet was conceived by acid-dropping academic types in the Bay Area, as were most of the protocols we still use today. In fact, the entire PC ecosystem sprang from the acid-enhanced imaginations of these guys. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ryan-grim/read-the-never-before-pub_b_227887.html
    So if physicists had dropped more acid in the 60's, maybe we'd have time machines by now, or at least molecular "transporters". Maybe flying cars. Most cultures have been experimenting with psychoactive substances since recorded history began, so "dope" may be the real mother of invention.

    I wish I had squires in my back yard, to tend to my horse and armor.

    It's called eye-fucking. Everybody knows when they're getting eye-fucked, because somebody is staring at you all cross-eyed and sweaty.
