“If’n you had a ‘brain’ in your head (you apparently don’t) you would know that calculus and the sciences use the natural radian unit ALMOST exclusively in formulas and calculations ...”

If you had a “brain” in your head, you might be able to conceive why someone might choose to use the much more commonly understood unit of “degree” on an open, non-scientific public forum to make a comment explaining a pretty simple problem that any laymen could understand if explained in the correct terms.

Or is that reasoning just a little too complicated for you to figure out?

“its NOT spam, and you started it”

It is spam since it’s completely irrelevant to the article being commented on, and you replied to me with this irrelevancy, I didn’t “start” anything.

This is actually a very old theory.

Read it back when I was a kid and that was a few days ago.

our universe may actually be a closed loop

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.

Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe.

"I like to tell high school kids... "

Thank you for posting. I do not understand what you mean, though. Your words seem to contradict because "travel" and "speed" do not go with "are everywhere at once."

Thanks in advance for any clarification . I do like mental experiments, though the idea of travel at the speed of light is so difficult. If you accelerated to almost the speed of light somehow, it would take all the stored energy of the universe to push you up that last little bit to get to that speed. Would that be a velocity? What "direction" would you be going?

"Our triangles add up to 180 degrees... "

Thanks for posting. My question to you is how do you know your protractor is not bending as you measure the angle? Where can I read about those "measurements by scientists"? Thank you!

Radians and degrees?
When doing trigonometry on the unit circle, radian measure is way easier for me to use in the calculations. If doing angles as fractions, using degree measure is easier because that number, 360, has the most even fractional divisions.

According to einstein’s theory, the faster you travel, the slower time passes. And it eventually reaches “zero” at the speed of light. Theoretically, mass can’t travel at the speed of light because it also increases as does the power needed to increase speed, eventually requiring “infinite” power, which is also theoretically impossible.

But light, being energy, has no problem with it. So, if something is traveling at the speed of light, and has consciousness, from its perspective, no time passes on a journey of one light year, which means you are at both your beginning point and end point - and at every point in between - at the same time.

And between you and that galaxy you are looking at through a telescope that may be millions of light years away, every point between you and that galaxy contains the light being transmitted by that galaxy for as long as it exists and you can see it. And that light is being projected in an infinite number of “lines” because it’s projection is spherical. Meaning the light from that galaxy is, from the light’s point of view, everywhere at once. And that goes for the light of every star and galaxy you can see. This brings up another point: The universe is absolutely CRAMMED with light. It is everywhere. And it is everywhere at the same time.

And God is light.

Thank you! What are we measuring when we measure of calculate the speed of light?

I don’t understand the question. I’m stuck on the word “of”.

The Powers-That-Be have designated ‘Radians’ as THE International [SI] unit of circular/angular measurements......In a hundred years ‘degrees’ with respect to circles will be an anachronism, like pecks and bushels........................
