whether or not it's true the guy who came up with it also writes some pretty good critiques of mainstream physics that make lysenkoism look heroic in comparison (well actually it was anyway), about how exactly the anomaly in that graph is the only proof we have of dark matter like literally the only proof, it's never been shown to exist empirically in any other way. and that as a theoretical concept it really is just an amorphous thing that can fill in any conceptual gap or fit any curve and that's been sustained as a theory only because massive amounts of academic and financial resources have been poured into it. as a level 10 dialectician and 8-dan philosopher of science this strikes me as true and it's also very satisfying to know that there is a profound rot in capitalist science, though I swear this doesn't affect my judgement at all,

I wld encourage people to believe in their dreams. Ten years ago I was daydreaming that the US govt wld fund me to develop my theory (which was then called #MiHsC) to make a new propulsion method, & now, after 10 years of hard work, they are! Excuse the emotion, but YAHOO! :)

chickeon posted:all of this is very cool but im especially fond of all teh stuff backing up my amorphous conviction taht dark matter is fake garbage. if you Didn't say or imply this then don't tell me!

all matter is fake, and even worse, its stupid as shit

Other real smart guys: let's make something up to cover our asses.

our materialist science will be antirealist or it will be bullshit

I don’t know much about mathematics or how much crucial info is in your post but if there is, I’d recommend moving it to the pdf forum so it isn’t indexed by google and therefore discoverable by query searches made by research offices in western engineering firms/universities if you’re thinking about those things

toyot posted:imo the circle should just be 1°. the angle should be on the closed-open interval [0, 1), mod 1, instead of mod 2pi or mod 360.

tau (= 2pi) will be the circle constant of the people's revolution

toyot posted:toyot posted:imo the circle should just be 1°. the angle should be on the closed-open interval [0, 1), mod 1, instead of mod 2pi or mod 360. half a circle would be 1/2 a degree, quarter circle would be 1/4 degree etc. easy base unit to convert into 360 degrees and radians. [0, 1) is consistent w/ the normal parametric real function interval. the ratio of period to amplitude for the sine function would be 1:1 instead of 1:2pi or 1:360. the degree symbol is even a circle, 1° means 1 circle. just imo.

i feel like this would solve a lot of problems in the world, i want to just put it out there again as a suggestion. 1 is a better numerator for circle divisions than three hundred and sixty degrees. what's 90 small degrees of a circle, it's 1/4 of a circle. babylon mind amerika

some people do this, it depends on what your application is. if all you care about is dividing up the period of some process thats a fine thing to do but in other applications it will leave you with conversion factors proportional to pi floating around

edit, some examples: if you're interested in, say, how a general oscillator adjusts its phase in response to a perturbation at different points in the period, denoting the full period as the interval [0,1) is standard (see here). on the other hand, if you need to take derivatives of a linear (aka sinusoidal) oscillator you will end up with factors of pi floating around since if you parametrize the phase phi by the interval [0,1) your sines will look like sin(2*pi*phi) so when you take derivatives the factor of 2*pi gets added.
