Dave T BS: Chaos, Intuition, and Nonlinear Dynamics (52* d) RE: BS: Chaos, Intuition, and Nonlinear Dynamics 13 Mar 02


Well this thread continues to offer surprises if nothing else. There's clearly a lot here relating to things other than Chaos, Intuition and Nonlinear Dynamcis.

With respect to some the discussion on space-time, I just don't see how it applies to Chaos, Intuition and Nonlinear Dynamics. Besides, space without time (as suggested by Amos) would require different physical laws for the universe and its behaviour. Since the existing laws are valid as far as we can verify, we can only conclude that for space to exist as we perceive it, space must include time.

As far as LH's comments including: The conventional scientific community, being on the somewhat higher levels of the mind, is neither equipped nor inclined toward an understanding of the spirit, in no way comprehends the spirit, denies its existence, and will loftily dismiss these statements of mine as meaningless. I agree, the conventional scientific community does not comprehend spirit; that admission is the first step toward understanding. That they are not equipped to comprehend the spirit is probably true (and evident by their failure to do so). That they they are not inclined implies an understanding of their motives (somewhat presumptuous). That they "will loftily dismiss these statements of mine as meaningless" is in itself a "lofty dismissal" of the scientific community. They may dismiss the statements if those statements have no foundation in theory supported by objective and reproducible experimental evidence but I hardly think that could be called "lofty". Science is concerned with describing the universe as it is, not as how we wish it to be. There have been many "scientific" attempts to describe the human spirit but none, to my knowledge, have proven to yield reliable predictions as of yet. We can therefore conclude that none are entirely correct (nor can we conclude that they are entirely incorrect).

Perhaps these other topics could be discussed in a separate thread??? Just a thought
