Chemistry: siniristiriita siniristiriita Stuff my chemistry teacher has started telling us about because he got distracted 1. The role of building pyramids on the maintenance of the cultural stability of ancient Egypt 2. The exact way that a molotov cocktail works against a tank 3. How a number of different modernly extinct or preventable illnesses affected European culture at their time (multiple occasions) 4. The evolutionary explanation as to why middle-european alcohol culture differs from eastern-european one 5. How climate zones work 6. How the camera was invented 7. Stories relating to wars fought in Europe between the 15th and 21st centuries (multiple occasions) 8. How allergies are born, and why they happen 9. Horoscopes and the differences between astrology and astronomy 10. Astrophysics (multiple occasions) 11. The arabic alphabet 12. The invention of milk chocolate 13. How the man who founded the LIDL supermarket chain used to be his grandmother's subtenant 14. Greek, anglo-saxon and egyptian mythology (multiple occasions) 15. The multiverse theory, and how technically speaking we might never meet aliens because we do not exist to them 16. How counting with your fingers affects the structure of math 17. The private lives of the Nobel brothers (multiple occasions) 18. The inherently catholic roots of the flag of the European Union, and general history of catholic iconography 19. How so many celtic traditions have found their way to Finland 20. All the places he has seen whale meat 21. How queen Victoria and queen Elizabeth respectively rose to power 22. The effects of hallucinogens on ancient religions (multiple occasions) 23. How women's shorter skirts and men ceasing to spit on floors indoors helped to stop the rampant spread of tuberculosis (related to #3 but he went on for 30 minutes about this one) 24. The Westermarck-effect and why it didn't apply to Egyptian pharaohs 25. The moonshine business his grandma used to run in the 40s 26. The effects of meat-eating on the human brain These are all from four weeks of classes in basic chem, where we are supposed to be learning how to read the periodic table and stuff 81 notes Chemistry

If you asked an astrophysicist today to describe what happened after the Big Bang, he would likely start with the concept of “cosmic inflation.” Cosmic inflation argues that right after the Big Bang — we’re talking after a teeny fraction of a second — the universe expanded at breakneck speed like dough in an oven. But this exponential expansion should create, due to quantum mechanics, regions where the universe continues to grow forever and regions where that growth stalls. The result would be a multiverse, a collection of bubblelike pockets, each defined by its own laws of physics. “The local laws of physics and chemistry can differ from one pocket universe to another, which together would form a multiverse,” Hertog said in a statement. “But I have never been a fan of the multiverse. If the scale of different universes in the multiverse is large or infinite the theory can’t be tested.” Along with being difficult to support, the multiverse theory, which was co-developed by Hawking in 1983, doesn’t jibe with classical physics, namely the contributions of Einstein’s theory of general relativity as they relate to the structure and dynamics of the universe. “As a consequence, Einstein’s theory breaks down in eternal inflation,” Hertog said. Einstein spent his life searching for a unified theory, a way to reconcile the biggest and smallest of things, general relativity and quantum mechanics. He died never having achieved that goal, but leagues of physicists like Hawking followed in Einstein’s footsteps. One path led to holograms. Instead of the 'standard' description of how the 'universe' unfolded (and is unfolding), the authors argue the Big Bang had a finite boundary, defined by string theory and holograms. The new theory - which sounds simplistically like the world of the red-pill-blue-pill Matrix movies - embraces the strange concept that the universe is like a vast and complex hologram. In other words, 3D reality is an illusion, and that the apparently "solid" world around us - and the dimension of time - is projected from information stored on a flat 2D surface.: STEPHEN HAWKINGS LAST WORDS WELIVEINTHEMATRI If you asked an astrophysicist today to describe what happened after the Big Bang, he would likely start with the concept of “cosmic inflation.” Cosmic inflation argues that right after the Big Bang — we’re talking after a teeny fraction of a second — the universe expanded at breakneck speed like dough in an oven.
