5PM. It wouldn't really be too much of a problem if I didn't for some reason take Nyquil about 30 minutes ago. My arms are getting heavy, haha.

i cbf answering these right now, maybe later

reality is completely based on quality.

whaat about the social construction of reality? Hitoricity and reification of externally perceived realities can become internalised and subjective to an individual - thus society being the basis of everything we perceive.

Of course this kinda denounces free will and everything, but interesting nonetheless

We know more about space than we do about our own oceans. What is more important researching things not on our planet or things on our planet?

That's not true at all. We know practically nothing about space if you take into account how incredibly vast it is. So much more is undiscovered in the billions of trillions of miles of space than in the thousands of miles of ocean here on Earth.

Regardless, with populations increasing as exponentially as they are now, space research is looking to be pretty important. Not to mention the potential for natural resources that may become increasingly scarce on our own planet.

i lol'd. I think we need to put a lot of emphasis on research into solar storms that shoot super high energy particles out into the universe. That's the shit that will kill us one day

I got the idea of that from dateline. They claim we know more about space than the oceans. And my response to star wars is sealab.

1. When matter implodes into a black hole, what becomes of it?

2. If the big bang theory is true, what can the space that was filled up with the universe then be considered? It wasn't "space", because it was then filled up with space. For some reason I picture it to be blank white, or it was nothing.

'nothing' couldn't have been white, because you need light to make white, and light is 'something'.

Provided the big bang is true, i think the big bang was one of countless big bangs, and our universe is one of countless universes inside something so much bigger. But that process of everything being apart of something bigger has to stop eventually, right?

True Brian...I guess it's all my human self can imagine. Also, I think I'm starting to understand the whole big bang and how life is culminated. It's time and dimensions that I can't grasp. I don't think we're able to. Maybe that's where everything goes/came from.

3. If there are aliens, could they have different senses than we do?

I think the fact that animals have different senses to certain degrees says that aliens could most definitely have different senses.

The fact there are different mediums of waves and particles pretty much mandates different senses. Our sense of sight is very limited in that we can only see a very small portion of light waves. And that's just light.
