I sometimes do add Avocado to my salad. I rarely eat Avocado by itself though. Before I watched the video which I’d shared right after the break, I didn’t know that Avocado is a danger to water resource for some places around the world. In Chile, some parts suffer water shortage, and Avocado farming increases the water shortage for people who are living in these water shortage regions. The video claims that Avocado is a thirsty fruit since it requires eight more times of the water than potato. I never knew that Avocado is so thirsty. Now, I feel guilty whenever I throw away Avocados that had gone bad in the refrigerator. Check the video out right after the break.
My imagination runs wild like a horse in the wild today, and so today it’s all about black hole and infinity and Calculus. To tell the truth, I’m not at all great in math, and so Calculus is so out there for me. Furthermore, I have not been back to school for ages, and so I might be a thousand miles away from the right answer when I’m trying to do a complicated math problem such as a hard Algebraic problem and so forth. Still, I’m a carefree person sometimes, and today is that day when I don’t care if I’m right or wrong.
According to the YouTube video right after the break, a black hole is formed because of the massive gravitational collapse of a dead star. Personally, I like to say a massive gravitational implosion because it sounds cooler! Anyway, the video right after the break explains how black hole forms in detail.
Today, I imagine that because of massive collapse or implosion of dense gravitational strength which, in my opinion, allows the core of a dead star not really was squashed into nothingness but was pushed so hard that it stretched and ripped a hole of our 3D/4D spatial space — thus pushing and ejecting the core of the dead star through another spatial dimension. This way, as if you can imagine that a hypersonic plane got punctured with a massive hole and thus anything got closer to the hole would get eject and suck out of the plane. The hypersonic plane is the container or the fabric of our 3D/4D spatial dimension and the outside is a bigger dimension that imprisons our 3D/4D spatial dimension.
Why black hole is always round like a circle and not a square? You know, if you push a ball through a massive piece of easy to be ripped tissue, you could probably create a square or a weird shape of the hole in the tissue right? Here comes the part of infinity and Calculus — hence circle.
Since Calculus was probably started by the ancient mathematics geniuses who were hypnotized by trying to work with a circle or whatever was more meaningful than a circle that led to their wonderment of infinity. Since a circle isn’t a straight line, in Calculus, I guess we could imagine a circle is a composite of infinitely small straight lines that form a circle in an orderly connected directional position. Hence infinity’s involvement since we don’t really know curve that well and have to use our imagination of using a straight line with infinity to form a circle. I guess, through infinity, a constant of the unknown, we find changes in infinitely small intervals. (My interval meaning isn’t a mathematical one but merely a point!) — So I guess Calculus is about finding the meaning of the change!
What has Calculus got to do with a black hole? In my opinion, a ball rips through a massive tissue isn’t the same as a massive collapse or implosion of gravity. According to the book “Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of Universe” by Steven Strogatz, and here I quote:
Mathematically, circles embody change without change. A point moving around the circumference of a circle changes direction without ever changing its distance from a center. It’s a minimal form of change, a way to change and curve in the slightest way possible. And, of course, circles are symmetrical. If you rotate a circle about its center, it looks unchanged. That rotational symmetry may be why circles are so ubiquitous. Whenever some aspect of nature doesn’t care about direction, circles are bound to appear. Consider what happens when a raindrop hits a puddle: tiny ripples expand outward from the point of impact. Because they spread equally fast in all directions and because they started at a single point, the ripples have to be circles. Symmetry demands it.
Thus my thinking is that since symmetry demands it, whenever something in nature which doesn’t care about the direction like the implosion of gravity — in our case the black hole — a circle must be formed in space that is so black as a black hole! As I mentioned above, the core of the dead star was collapsed and imploded so hard by gravity thus I think it probably got ejected through the ripped 3D/4D spatial dimension. Like a hypersonic plane that got a massive hole, anything near the hole would get ejected out to the other side. Whatever on the other side must be so exotic and our super special black hole makes things so impossible that even light cannot escape the grasp of the black hole.
In the video right after the break, the video suggests China is planning a mission for Mars in 2020. I assume they’re planning to send taikonauts to Mars in 2020 since the video is about how they had built a Mars simulation base for taikonauts on earth. I think this is amazing! Sending humans to Mars would be a new next biggest achievement for humans outside of earth! I can’t wait to see this happens in 2020!
I asked this question “Japan is planning to be successful in making a first space elevator, can Japan realize this dream? Can space elevator really help us get around in space better than today’s spacecraft propulsion technology?” on Quora and I got an answer with a very cool video which linked by a Quora user Bert Murray. Check the video out right after the break. I think you’ll like it, and you could learn something about space too.
Just a quick thought on why we’re alone or at least we think we’re alone! If you have read the Three-Body Problem sci-fi trilogy, then you may compel to agree with the author that other aliens don’t want to be seen at all costs! The idea is that once an intelligent world is being discovered it could be the end of it.
Imagine an intelligent world that is being developed to the point that it needs to colonize other planets to sustain its population and civilization. This world thus would go out of its way to strip resources of other planets and stars. The hungriness of such a world would not be stopped and it would grow infinitely until their technology got so great that they could outstrip an entire galaxy for resources.
Aliens might not want to see such a world to develop to such capacity that would compete against their own world, and so destroying an undeveloped world as fast as possible would be the easiest thing to do. Of course, we could not know what the aliens would think. Perhaps some aliens out there prefer peace over war. Perhaps, some aliens prefer to see the whole universe teems with colorful civilizations.
Personally, I think there could be aliens out there that are so developed and advanced to the point that they could hide in plain sight and we just don’t have the technology to see them. Some aliens could be so advanced that they don’t need to colonize and change the ecosystem of a planet for survival because they could modify themselves to fit into any environment! For all, we could know they could fly in a poisonous gaseous environment and would still feel like taking a stroll on a warm Sunday afternoon.
As we’re looking for a Goldilocks solar system to test our theory of finding existing alien life, these aliens may just be in plain sight but we won’t know it as we’re too focusing on the wrong environment. In short, we’re guessing but we could be off for miles. Perhaps, aliens don’t live in a Goldilocks environment? Perhaps they are and they have the technology to prevent us from seeing them or seeing their solar system?
Dr. Mahathir Mohamad thinks that the richer the Chinese get, they will not accept the domination of the Dollar. He thinks that China may force the world to trade in Yuan. This is certainly a scary thing for the United States!
If China could force the world to trade in Yuan, people like me who are living in the United States would have to face many scary outcomes of a much weaker Dollar. Just imagine if the world decides to drop the U.S. Dollar as the reserve currency, the United States then has to worry about the balance of trade even more than ever before.
A country in some ways is not that different than a normal household. Besides getting loans, what you make is what you have got to spend. Nonetheless, a normal household got bills to pay, and so what you make is what you have got to save somehow. Without enough saving, you don’t have enough money to spend. Living beyond one’s means will get one into huge debts.
Dr. Mahathir Mohamad hints that if China forces the world to abandon Dollar for Yuan, the United States won’t have enough gold and whatever to pay back debts and could declare bankruptcy overnight. I’m an American and so I don’t want to see something like this to occur, but we’re not Chinese and so we can’t really know what the Chinese would do when they get even richer.
Check out the video right after the break to see Dr. Mahathir Mohamad — current Malaysia’s prime minister — speaks on how the Chinese may drop the Dollar in the near future and force the world to trade in Yuan.
