Big news aplenty from the world of science. ACTUAL science, that would be, not the hyper-politicized intellectual abortion Wokester retards are pleased to misnomer as such.
A Student Just Proved Paradox-Free Time Travel Is Possible
Now we can all go back to 2019.
In a peer-reviewed paper, an honors undergraduate student says he has mathematically proven the physical feasibility of a specific kind of time travel. The paper appears in Classical and Quantum Gravity.
University of Queensland student Germain Tobar, who the university’s press release calls “prodigious,” worked with UQ physics professor Fabio Costa on this paper. In “Reversible dynamics with closed time-like curves and freedom of choice,” Tobar and Costa say they’ve found a middle ground in mathematics that solves a major logical paradox in one model of time travel. Let’s dig in.
Whereupon they do, in a fashion that isn’t so mathematics-laden and conceptually opaque as to be completely impenetrable to your average lay person. That’s something that PopMech has always been pretty good at, which is one of the reasons I subscribed to their email newsletter in the first place. Robert Heinlein would violently object to the very idea of it, but the possibilities this development opens up for sci-fi alone are exciting, to say the very least.
Next up, mo’ bettah good news.
Expert Explains Cancer May Be Metabolic Disease, and Shares a Cure
“Cancer is not a genetic disease, it’s a metabolic disease,” Thomas N. Seyfried, a well-known scholar in cancer research and a Professor of Biology at Boston College, told The Epoch Times. “Once people understand that cancer is a metabolic disease, then you will begin to see a very big reduction in death and greatly improved quality of life and survival.”
From the perspective of cancer mortality, in the past nearly 100 years, the number of women who died of cancer per 100,000 Americans has gradually declined from roughly 190 in 1930 to 130 in 2022; whereas cancer deaths among men per 100,000 Americans rose from around 160 in 1930 to 180 in 2022.
In 2022, nearly 2,000,000 new cancer cases are expected in the United States, and over 500,000 people are expected to die from it. This means that every day, on average, 5,000 Americans are diagnosed with cancer, and over 1,600 people die from it.
“Why are so many people dying from cancer?” Seyfried asked. “Because the theory is wrong. The theory that underlies cancer is incorrect.”
Cancer is still generally considered a genetic disorder. Medical textbooks use somatic mutation theory to explain the cause of cancer. These textbooks state that cancer is caused by mutations in proto-oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes, and the mutated cells then multiply indefinitely and form malignant tumors. However, Seyfried mentioned a number of facts in this interview and in his published research that are inconsistent with the above theory.
Again, not so hard-science-heavy that it’s well beyond the ken of any benighted soul who isn’t a molecular-biology research specialist himself.
There’s a wee problem with the notion of retrograde time travel (i.e., into the past): it requires that there’s somewhere that that instant in the past is still happening and can be visited. Moreover, it requires that that be the case for every moment of past time. This is so patently absurd that it requires no further comment. (Cf. Heraclitus’s maxim.)
You’re just not a true believer Francis 🙂
