meyham39 Hey Room ✌️🇺🇸
Upaya Hey Meyham😎👋
Adite I like it when kids ask me seemingly simple questions.
meyham39 Up good afternoon ✌️
Adite I think the general answer is: 1. When they flap wings down, the apparent weight of the van would either be the same or greater than before. 2. When they flap up, there is no downwards force, so the van is lighter.
Adite Now what about drones?
cuddlyable3 Upaya is your bird equipped with a space suit to survive in a vacuum?
Upaya Wait... I think I get that, but wouldn't the van weight less when the bird is in free fall going down?🤔
Hermeneut but then the bird would lose altitude if they keep the altitude in flight, they have to be supported by the air they are flying in
Upaya yes cuddly, the van lol
Hermeneut and generate downward force in that air - just to keep flying
Adite Another nice problem - don't cheat.... If you were stuck in the middle of a huge frozen lake, how could use escape?
cuddlyable3 Outside the van it makes no difference what holds up the bird inside the van.
Adite The lake is completely frictionless.
Upaya Hey Miss
Hermeneut inhale in one direction, then turn and exhale to another direction lol
Adite *how could you escape? - note use
Adite Yes, that would work (slowly)!
Adite There is a slightly better answer.
Upaya Throwing stuff in the opposite direction?
Adite Yep, that would give you more momentum.
cuddlyable3 Assuming "stuck" doesn't imply adhesion.. Hermeneut how would you turn?
Adite I suspect you could turn.
Upaya spin your head
cuddlyable3 Am I allowed to piss?
Hermeneut I can turn only my head, I guess ... that should work enough
Adite That is my favourite answer, cuddly.
Upaya the inertia of your body should still allow your head to turn as it weighs less?
Upaya Hello Arm😎👋
cuddlyable3 Male micturation is dirigible, female not so much.
armaniarma how do you think
armaniarma did we fail mother earth
Upaya ... we could treat her better at least lol
cuddlyable3 Male micturition is dirigible (spelling corrected)
armaniarma as in what couse
armaniarma whats the problem
armaniarma what is the couse of the problem
armaniarma they say its a man made world out there for a reason
armaniarma ofcourse we are not talking about natures selection, but how we as beings perceived to evolve in culture
armaniarma and still stai in a similar way of natural selection
cuddlyable3 "There ain't no more, you've taken everything From my belief in Mother Earth Can you ignore my faith in everything ? 'Cause I know what faith is and what it's worth." - Steve Harley - Make Me Smile
Upaya (got a call 😅)
Hermeneut I kinda like the idea of "second replicator" emerging beside genes, the memes of however they might be called. The assumed basis of cultural evolution
Hermeneut but cultural evolution seems a hazy term, not that well defined. Same goes to memes
armaniarma yes it is
Upaya I watched a good debate with Dawkins on Evolution where he discussed that (it was actually a forward thinking evolution conversation, he wasn't just bantering with fundamentalist lol)
Hermeneut though memes are somewhat defined ... they are still confusing to me though
cuddlyable3 Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.
armaniarma just a nother corner for our lack of words to describe of what we think
Upaya This Video Will Make You Angry << I'm not sure if he actually defines Meme's in this video, but even so, still a great description of what they are, and how they function.
Hermeneut indeed, hence the idea of "second replicator"
Hermeneut Ideas that reproduce themselves
cuddlyable3 1 minute of a crude 7-minute cartoon video made me angry already
Upaya Your loss 🤷♂️
cuddlyable3 A field of study called memetics arose in the 1990s to explore the concepts and transmission of memes in terms of an evolutionary model. Memetics - Wikipedia
Upaya https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1528077 <<< this is the peer reviewed article that AMAZING crude video was based on if it helps
Upaya (brb )
Hermeneut that is an interesting thought though, ideas that are locked in a battle against each other can be viewed as symbiotic
drbrian_palevac spatial perceptions are arguably deeper than linguistic
Hermeneut that was mentioned in the video, if I was confusing
cuddlyable3 Thank you Upaya, 17 pages that don't treat the reader as illiterate.
cuddlyable3 I think I'll go and read that. Bye bye.
Upaya Yes, EXACTLY Herm 👍👍
drbrian_palevac Up, "Thought Germs" is one of the healthiest videos possible, thank you!
