I felt that this bit cued on something there.

World Wide Web is Going Strong After 25 years, but the Internet isn't Holding Up

To decide, we have to distinguish between two quite distinct entities: the internet, and the world wide web, which sits on top of it.

It is the internet, in the form of its underlying network protocol known as IPv4, that provides the weak link being broken by some of the latest high profile cyber attacks.

When the first few computer networks were connected, it was to share resources. Spreading the load between machines meant that those with spare capacity could help out those that needed more.


The brilliance of what Berners-Lee did was to come up with an extensible mark-up language known as Hypertext Mark-up Language, or HTML. This allowed us all to write pages that could be universally accessed. Crucially, HTML was made freely available so people started writing browsers that would enable you to read HTML based web pages.

And that, with the benefit of hindsight, was where the problem inherent in the internet was compounded. Neither IPv4 nor HTML were built with security in mind. The entire purpose of the web was to allow academics and other researchers to freely share their work. Indeed, the more people that accessed it and read your work the happier you would be.

It never entered anyone’s head that we might wish to restrict access or that we might one day pay for things online or use it to communicate our most intimate thoughts. The web was a victim of its own success. HTML unlocked the potential of connecting people, and since humans just love to share and chat, we all got hooked.

By the mid-1990s, businesses finally found the web and that’s when the floodgates opened. It was when money became involved that people really began to realise that security was an issue. Secure HTML emerged alongside other secure extensions to the original protocols which made it possible for us to interact over a public network in a secure manner.

The days of the web are not necessarily numbered. It has a way of evolving, almost organically, as threats emerge. We have solutions to many of the problems that threaten our safety online, particularly those that relate to spoofing IP addresses, and misusing the older protocols, and will probably continue to produce more.

The irony is that in such a hyper-connected world we struggle to get the word out about these solutions. People can access the information they need to stay safe online but are not doing so. It is almost as if there is so much communication that important messages are being lost in what is perceived as background noise.

Re: X Marks the Spot
Spacetime May Be A Slippery Fluid

Spacetime is a somewhat slippery concept -- Einstein described the universe in four dimensions, combining the well-known three dimensions of space with time. Physicists now suggest that spacetime may itself be a fluid, a very slippery type known as a superfluid.

Now researchers suggest that if spacetime is a fluid, it must be an extraordinary kind of fluid known as a superfluid. These findings could help test models of quantum gravity.

A superfluid is a fluid that flows with virtually zero friction or viscosity. In comparison, water might seem as slow as molasses.

'Slippery' rang a bell for me. I believe at the time I was talking about the 'bubble'. And the colors which swirl around seemingly 'atop' a slippery surface. An invisible 'in between'.

Albert Einstein's religious views have been studied extensively. He said he believed in the "pantheistic" God of Baruch Spinoza, but not in a personal god, a belief he criticized. He also called himself an agnostic, while disassociating himself from the label atheist, preferring, he said, "an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being."

He also called himself an agnostic, while disassociating himself from the label atheist, preferring, he said, "an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being."
 Quoting: Fancypantz


“As the first way out there was religion, which is implanted into every child by way of the traditional education-machine. Thus I came — though the child of entirely irreligious (Jewish) parents — to a deep religiousness, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of twelve. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. The consequence was a positively fanatic orgy of freethinking coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies; it was a crushing impression. Mistrust of every kind of authority grew out of this experience, a skeptical attitude toward the convictions that were alive in any specific social environment-an attitude that has never again left me, even though, later on, it has been tempered by a better insight into the causal connections. It is quite clear to me that the religious paradise of youth, which was thus lost, was a first attempt to free myself from the chains of the ‘merely personal,’ from an existence dominated by wishes, hopes, and primitive feelings. ................

Kind of, I jumped over a little creek and falls leaves were spread nicely to hide the mud underneath. So, I mostly fell but caught myself at the very end and laughed. All to go to the thinking tree. It is this huge tree that is really old.

Re: X Marks the Spot
Spacetime May Be A Slippery Fluid

Spacetime is a somewhat slippery concept -- Einstein described the universe in four dimensions, combining the well-known three dimensions of space with time. Physicists now suggest that spacetime may itself be a fluid, a very slippery type known as a superfluid.

Now researchers suggest that if spacetime is a fluid, it must be an extraordinary kind of fluid known as a superfluid. These findings could help test models of quantum gravity.

A superfluid is a fluid that flows with virtually zero friction or viscosity. In comparison, water might seem as slow as molasses.

'Slippery' rang a bell for me. I believe at the time I was talking about the 'bubble'. And the colors which swirl around seemingly 'atop' a slippery surface. An invisible 'in between'.

Not sure I recall enough to pull the post up though.

Einsteins religious view is interesting

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Albert Einstein's religious views have been studied extensively. He said he believed in the "pantheistic" God of Baruch Spinoza, but not in a personal god, a belief he criticized. He also called himself an agnostic, while disassociating himself from the label atheist, preferring, he said, "an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being."
 Quoting: Fancypantz


“As the first way out there was religion, which is implanted into every child by way of the traditional education-machine. Thus I came — though the child of entirely irreligious (Jewish) parents — to a deep religiousness, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of twelve. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. The consequence was a positively fanatic orgy of freethinking coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies; it was a crushing impression. Mistrust of every kind of authority grew out of this experience, a skeptical attitude toward the convictions that were alive in any specific social environment-an attitude that has never again left me, even though, later on, it has been tempered by a better insight into the causal connections. It is quite clear to me that the religious paradise of youth, which was thus lost, was a first attempt to free myself from the chains of the ‘merely personal,’ from an existence dominated by wishes, hopes, and primitive feelings. ................

yes, for the first time in our recorded history upon gaia we are on the threshold of creating a global authority free instant communications system that is no cost and accessible in every location
and
we possess the ability for no cost to user to provide rechargeable hand held instant communications technology that does everything we require to express ourselves in all mediums of media
this is a new to this planet notion that does not exist in our visible records thus there is no known outcome to this experience

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Albert Einstein
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 57219122


Didn't go down for me. Was just a bit slow.

I believe that quote is mistakenly quoted to Einstein


The answer isn't really known but current consensus is that it came from the author Rita Mae Brown in her book Sudden Death on Pg. 68 from 1983.

Quote: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results."

Most people will attribute this quote to Albert Einstein but there is no evidence to suggest that he made this statement.

This quote "Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results"

Re: X Marks the Spot
lol. Did you catch yourself before falling? I did that the other day too. But it was inside.


I just had an interesting thought. May be nothing.

What happens when you put soap on wet, flat sand?

Would something slid over the the top, glide more easily?

oh

The climate of the Sahara has undergone enormous variations between wet and dry over the last few hundred thousand years. This is due to a 41000 year cycle in which the tilt of the earth changes between 22° and 24.5°. At present (2000 CE), we are in a dry period, but it is expected that the Sahara will become green again in 15000 years (17000 CE).

During the last glacial period, the Sahara was even bigger than it is today, extending south beyond its current boundaries. The end of the glacial period brought more rain to the Sahara, from about 8000 BCE to 6000 BCE, perhaps because of low pressure areas over the collapsing ice sheets to the north.

Once the ice sheets were gone, the northern Sahara dried out. In the southern Sahara though, the drying trend was soon counteracted by the monsoon, which brought rain further north than it does today. In this period, there was still a monsoon climate in the Sahara. Monsoons form by heating of air over the land during summer. The hot air rises and pulls in cool, wet air from the ocean, which causes rain. Thus, though it seems counterintuitive, the Sahara was wetter when it received more insolation in the summer. This was caused by a stronger tilt in Earth's axis of orbit than today (24.5 degree tilt vs the 23.4° tilt today ), and perihelion occurred at the end of July around 7000 BCE.

By around 4200 BCE, the monsoon retreated south to approximately where it is today, leading to the gradual desertification of the Sahara. The Sahara is now as dry as it was about 13,000 years ago.

What occurs when any type of cord which send electrical impulse is damaged?

Spinal cord for example.

It was cued being the cord on my headphones broke a couple hours ago and only worked on one side. Right side interestingly enough. I could jiggle the cord and it would work once touching again, but any movement cause it to go out again. Broken internal wire. Broken connection.
