    Seriously, my knowledge of ANY physics: Fail

    The Quantum Leap show? Was it any good? It was before my time

    Best time as any to learn :D I've got some simple videos that explain the basics, I'll post em up when I get home tonight

    For your sake, just pretend your in the 2nd dimension. ;)

    For those of you wanting to know a lil bit more on String Theory and Quantum Physics, watch this documentary. I had to watch it a few times to wrap my head around it, and I'm still a bit gray on the subject. Overall, VERY VERY interesting, and thought provoking!!

    There are two different versions, I like one a bit better than the other. It's just edited differently. I was able to find it at my local blockbuster.

    Yea, this is a great vid! I wish that everyone would take the time to sit down and watch it. But not only watch it, think about it, and apply it.

    Deep down I knew what they explained in this video was true, after watching the vid, it just re-affirmed my beliefs as well as added new ones. Definitely have to keep an open mind!!

    I read Brian Greene's (one of the main proponents of String/M theory) The Elegant Universe years ago, and gave it a chance. I also believed in God, Santa, and a cornucopia of commonly accepted myths.
    I now prefer simpler philosophies/approaches to physics to explain my world, like WYSIWYG and GIGO. Occam's Razor helps, and the Hermetic principle, As above, so Below.
    Check out Thunderbolts.org, holoscience.com, or search Plasma Physics/Electric Universe for an alternative to the fairy tale.
    And for a new way to look at things, search Dying and Flying by Mel Acheson. Brief yet insightful essay.
    Simply put, I think we live in 3 dimensions, and that time is completely a human construct to measure our movement through those dimensions. I don't really worry too much about it anymore... :rasta:
    I coulda posted links to the above, but I strongly believe in the Conservation of Energy...especially my own.
