    Lightbulb Re: Sea's S&T Discussion and Concordance

    Eureka..!!!

    I don't have time right now, (I'm on my lunch break) but I finally figured out what has to be done to open a hyperspace window. I also figured out what a hyperspace corridor is in relation to 'normal' space time. It also explains why hyperspace is sometimes referred to as a 'slip' stream. It ALSO explains why mass causes gravity (in a general sense anyways). I feel like I just hit a homerun out of the park..! I'll give you more details later on.

    It is really very cool...! (or at least I think so)

    It explains so much, that it may take a while. Also, I'm going to need to make some visuals on my computer to add to it. This is gonna be great..!

    Ok well i look forward to hearing your break through! perhap you should start a new thread, " break-throughs in understanding, post yours here!" instead of clogging this one up

    You are the fifth race, your role is clear, if there is any hope in preserving the future it lies with you and your people ~ 8years for those words

    Well, keep in mind, this thread is also for S&T discussion. Only the first few pages will be critical for ease of use, as far as the Concordance part of this thread is concerned. The later pages (about where we are now) are for inquiries of the newbie posters, and discussion between us regulars about anything. An inquiry (to us directly) by a newbie will be isolated events, and there won't be any need for anyone to go through those posts or pages to search for their questions. Beyond the first few pages, this thread may grow as large as it could get, and it won't make much difference. The reference part of this thread will remain at the first couple of pages. Like I said at the first, I will continuously update those first few posts with relevant information and threads. Nothing that is posted on this end of the thread will make any difference.

    So the same goes for you; you are free to post whatever you like at this end of the thread. It could be about your virtual series, a book you read, a new piece of technology, or whatever. Remember, this is also a 'hangout' thread too... On the other hand, if this thing I came up with (not really new, just a different way of explaining old ideas) reaches a point, that I think it warrants its own thread, I'll be sure to do that. I assure you that I'm not using this thread as an excuse to not make new threads...

    Ok well id like to put this to you, its actually really depressing:
    According to some the world, due to the effects of global warming, as a result of our misguided models due to global dimming will be almost 90% uninhabitable by the year 2200.
    Also due to the advances in medicine the first 200 year old has already been born according to some.
    That means that there is are generation alive right now who will live to see the end of life on Earth.
    Isnt that a cheery thought

    Oy..! Your right. That IS depressing. Good thing I don't believe it. I'm naturally more optimistic about the 'sturdiness' of our planet, than that. As far as anyone knows for SURE, Global Warming MAY, just be a part of the natural cycle of the planet. I'm sure we humans aren't helping too much, but I think Momma Nature has more brawn than some people give her credit for. On the other hand, if your right, then maybe I'm glad I'll be dead by then.

    As to the 200 year old thing... hey... I'd like to live that long..! As optimistic as I am though... I doubt that I will. More correctly, I'd like to live that long IF I could live that long and have a reasonably good living condition. If I'm going to live that long and be a vegetable. Mmmm... I don't know about that.

    Oh i think the planet will recover, but i doubt well be part of that recovery i think there are two options for the outsome of our time on the planet:
    * an ice age or other totally devastating climatic shift, i think on a long term scale "the day after tomorrow" is very accurate. That the earths climate will sort iteself out but well get wiped out in the process
    * the planet becomes totally uninhabitable, and basicly becomes a desert planet, like mars...explains:
    we know that if the greenland ice cap melts, which it will do in 30 years taking in to account global dimming and warming models, the sulphur banks in the arctic will be relased containing 100million times the amount of sullphur ever produced since the advent of the industrial revolution, enough to literally burn the planet's atmosphere and turn the globe in to giant fireball, this will happne over a few years but will happen enough to do this.
    In 60 years the rainforests will catch fire putting enough CO2 in the atmosphere to totally change earth climate, britain will be a desert within the century.
    what scares me as a member of the generation who will have to deal with this directly ( and as a student studying this at A-level) ,is that we dont have the technolgy or the resources to stop this.
    If we take away pollution the world will freeze due to global dimmin, and if we take away Co2 emitions the worlds population will be crippled due to no power, heat or light...

    A factor not usually considered is human inginuity. Humans are very adaptable, but can get rather panicky and stupid in large groups.

    Of course, if we reduced emmission levels now we won't need to adapt later, and we would avoid the loss of life and sociological fallout of climate change. We really should be taking more care of our planet. I can't see this coming anytime soon though ...

    If all else fails, we can leave our planet. Hey, we had the technology to do that in the 60s - nuclear pulse propulsion. The US project ('Orion') was dropped because of an anti-nuclear testing treaty between the US and USSR. Problem is finding another earthlike world - terraforming would be the only way, but is only theoretical at the moment ...

    I'm optimistic about the future, but rather critical of the present

    Humanity has such potential - don't mess it up now ...

    Homesapians are adamptable yes, humanity isnt...For global warming to have no further detrimetnal effect, all CO2 emitions, all NO4 emitions and all CFC emitions have to stop by 2010, thats 4 years to develop and alternative means of power.
    Seas levels are goign to rise at the level we are at now, this will reduce the amount of land by ALOT, it will cut of nearly all flat, arable land in UK making poulation density and food shortages painfull.
    Stopping by 2010 will cut out the worst of it, actually prolong it to be honest, the ice caps will melt but when.
    When is the question, at any rate, even if we had stopped last year or in 2000 the world climate will change within the next 100 years. the planet has been around for 3.4 billion years and we ruin it in 300, humans > industrial revolution > selfish and ignorant nations > destruction of planet, and me havign to watch.

    I agree, it should be taken as a serious threat. The governments and corperations of the world are ignoring the problem. I still want to be optimistic though

    ORION:



    ^ This thing could be built with a 60s level of technology

    It could carry a payload equivalent to a small city

    Approximate velocity would be around 10% of the speed of light

    Presumably it would include a huge, spinning (to produce artificial gravity) 'habitat' section where humans could live.

    Mmm. I still don't buy the 'doomsday' scenario. I absolutely agree that humankind have done damage to the planet, but I don't think it has been THAT extreme. To quote Dr. Ian Malcom on Jurassic Park... "Life will find a way..." I agree that the long term prognosis doesn't look good, but I also think that the scientist on our planet still have a LOT of research and studying to do before they can make any global claims definitively. Also, nations all over the world have begun making changes (even the U.S., despite the whole Kyoto thing) to protect the environment. I think more environmentally-friendly methodologies that are beginning to be used, and developed will give the planet a strong outlook over the long time. We have no idea to what extent the polar ice caps will melt, or precisely what effects the extra water in the oceans will ultimately have.

    In short, I will remain optimistic about the future of mankind and our planet.

    Sweeeeet...! ^ I like it..!

    Don't get me wrong. I take it seriously too, but I'm just not ready to concede to the defeatist attitude some would lead us into with those predictions. I think the planet is tougher than that, and I think humanity and nature itself will find a way to deal. It may not be easy, but I believe it will happen, none the less.

    Make no mistake. I respect your view on it. However, I refuse to accept a defeatist attitude myself. I agree that we should do everything possible to minimize damages, but I simply will not concede defeat before it is over. I would rather live fighting with hope, than to hang my head in defeat waiting for the end to come. I refuse to do that. On that my mind is made up. I accept that there are problems, and that we must deal with them. If it came to it, we could pull a 'matrix scenario' and live underground until the planet restored itself. There are many possibilities, and opportunities. We even could terraform Mars, or create cities beneath the oceans here on Earth. There are many possibilities of surviving on 'Spaceship Earth'. We have only to use our imaginations (as you yourself immhotep are so fond of doing), and we CAN survive. I have no doubt of it.

    Hey im saying this is going to happen, i never said we cant escape it; but the problem is to do so were going to have to make soem very tough choices, there are going to be deaths, on the scale never seen before, and im not being nasty or condemning people but people in MEDC's have the greatest chance of surviving and as such its those peopele's resposiblilitie to make sure they do, and everyone else has to follow after.
    One idea that might work is creating atlanti's, underwater cities, in fact i had an idea about this once that i once explained to owen...about using domes of solid reinforced glass over cityies and usings magnetic clamps to secure them to the ocean bed.
    However, this would mean a total and complete acceptance of the facts, global organsiation of resources and planning of military effectiveness; it would mean building, say 5 cities, (one for each continent), each able to survive the presure of not just our ocean but the futures, with enough air and supply or way to get supplys for indefinate periods of time.
    On top of this it would mean that designers would need power sources that didnt rely on anything FF, id surgest tidal ( underwater windmill power) combined with geothermal ( use the mid-atlantic ridge for somthing). as well as enough room for populations to grow and susttainable grow for the rest of time. The cities would need to support approxematly 300million people each, in order for a reasonable survival rate/ cost of project. That 1.5 billion peopel, 1 quarter of the world, which is harsh but quite goodl when looked at with mass extinction in contrast, IMO.

    The other option is just as tricky, terraforming mars in the time we have would still require a massive international operation, it took earth 1.4 billion years to devlop an atmosphere that would protect us from the sun..i dont see it as a viable option.

    One idea to consider would be the lifeboat, if medicine can advance to a point where effective cryogenics is a large scale option then we should take it. Create a giant spaceship in orbit, with space for everyone who is alive at that point (IMO we'll be at rainforest burning by this point) and just simply leave it in orbit(and wait until the planet recovers), or set it off in the direction of a suitable world hoping for salvation.
    These are our options:
    Stay and adapt,
    Leave and hope
    Do nothing and perish,

    The other option is just as tricky, terraforming mars in the time we have would still require a massive international operation, it took earth 1.4 billion years to devlop an atmosphere that would protect us from the sun..i dont see it as a viable option.

    One idea to consider would be the lifeboat, if medicine can advance to a point where effective cryogenics is a large scale option then we should take it. Create a giant spaceship in orbit, with space for everyone who is alive at that point (IMO we'll be at rainforest burning by this point) and just simply leave it in orbit(and wait until the planet recovers), or set it off in the direction of a suitable world hoping for salvation.
    These are our options:
    Stay and adapt,
    Leave and hope
    Do nothing and perish,

    Well, whatever happens time will tell. I just don't expect I'll have to worry about it myself to soon. I could worry about it, but there is nothing I could personally do. When things get so nuts, it's impossible to ignore, then I'll get antsy about it, but until then, I'm just going to live my life as I can.
    The success or failure of your deeds, does not add up to the sum of your life. Your spirit cannot be weighed! Judge yourself by the intentions of your actions, and by the strength with which you faced the challenges that have stood in your way. The Universe is so vast, and we are so small, there is only truly one thing we can control; whether we are good or evil... -Oma Desala

    I'm tending towards agreeing with immhotep: Climate change is a serious threat.

    [RANT]

    This is what annoys me about humans: lack of coordination, greed and lack of forsight

    America still refuses to acknowlege that global warming exists despite massive amounts of evidence to support it. Their greed, the greed of the rapidly industralising China and the greed of the countries burning the rainforest is going to cause a massive global disaster.

    The world is simply motivated by money - they don't care about what will happen to their children and planet Earth in the future. Oil companies (and others) will gladly go on lobbying for more lax pollution regulations so long as they can make money out of it. Cigarette companies will gladly lie to and kill millions just so they can make a profit - it disgusts me

    The human race may survive, but they will look back on us with shame. They will look upon us as we look upon times gone past - it's better now than it was then.

    We are too primative for or own technology. Most of the world's population lives under the poverty line - we can feed everyone but we don't bother; our society is hopelessly inefficient and apathetic; we live under incompetent, dictatorial governments.

    [/RANT]

    Whew, I needed that ...

    I hold out hope for the future - the human race has a long way to go yet. In time the human race will realise: they are like teenagers, convinced of their own immortality - "it won't happen to me", blinded, stubborn and narrowminded.

    The human race badly needs to grow up ...

    i guess thats all we can do, and that is will do, but i just wanted to make my opinions noted that i think something MUST done NOW, my personal future is at stake, tell the presidents that thier childen will be amounst the last on this planet.
    I think everyones future is at stake but mine more than most because i worked this out, i will see: the polar ices caps melting, half of the coast line of the northern hemishpere including my hometown disappear, the forests and the oceans on fire with suplhur dioxide released form the arctic reserves, a thick blanket of smog worldwide blocking out 90% of the sunlight and most of the green areas on the earth turn to desert with the desert turning to some glassy molton abomination...and this is all within the century...all within my current lifespan...still within every person i know's lifepsan.

    But yes, if anyone would like to know of where a thread might be, ask. dont think any of these posts are daunting, If you want to ask ASK our topics are tertiary to the purpose of the thread, second to informing posts and updating the concordiance

    You are the fifth race, your role is clear, if there is any hope in preserving the future it lies with you and your people ~ 8years for those words

It ALSO explains why mass causes gravity (in a general sense anyways). I feel like I just hit a homerun out of the park..! I'll give you more details later on.

    It is really very cool...! (or at least I think so)

    It explains so much, that it may take a while. Also, I'm going to need to make some visuals on my computer to add to it. This is gonna be great..!

    Well mass causes gravity because it warps the space time continuum, but I'm sure your idea is much better than stupid old general relativity (lol ) I'd like to hear what you have.

    Actually, we are having a discussion over on Stargate Omega (http://stargateomega.com/forum) about global warming. http://www.stargateomega.com/forum/showthread.php?t=672

    spg_1983 has proposed that evidence exists that actually suggests the global temperature is falling, unfortunately he hasn't been by lately to support his accusations, but it is an interesting thought.
