>logic based question

If all current theories require some X item to have always been in existence, and for it to have a progression along the time line from state A to state B (big bang to now for example) would that not, also mean that if X item was always in existence that time, also extends infinitely backwards. With this logic state A would be infinitely backwards on the timeline which would mean that at some point our universe did not have the same laws of time, and or physics. Under this condition all current known theories would be...

Sure. But the very idea that nature operates nonlocally on a microscopic level is profound in itself.

What real life weapons (that could be carried by a person) could puncture (not shatter or blast) ~4 inches of diamond plating?

Would it be possible for an organic weapon made of earth-like substances (and small enough to be hidden on a normal human sized body) to puncture ~4 inches of diamond plating? i.e. bone spear, wood-like bullet projectile etc..

Also, would it be possible for an organic creature to form a metal utensil that would be as strong as a tempered one? What about a diamond utensil?

Diamond is heavy and shatters easily with concentrated KE. This is why you only see diamond tools for cutting in CNC machines and the like, and not diamond tanks.

Physically or mathematically speaking?

I mean it's some factor, and the answers depends if v is volume or velocity, and how it's related to the length L, or hopefully something of the same unit as it.

Your question is pretty half-assed

assuming there are infinite multiple universes there's a pretty good chance that say if you die that there could be another universe where your very same conscience at the time of your death is basically kept alive through some form right?

what's the problem?

So I'm an applied math major and people here seem to suggest to build up a programming portfolio to increase my job prospects.

But what the fuck do you guys actually make for in a portfolio? The only programming I've learned is how to use Python and MATLAB for computations, modelling and solving differential equations. I don't have a clue how to actually develop an application. I don't have any good ideas on what to develop. Can someone help me?

not really! a portfolio implies you make interesting small-ish projects, and that means you need to konw what to do. making small projects and posting them on github is a good idea
>>
>>8208583

If you want to get good at programming you need to stop with matlab at once and start writing some actual code.

If you want to remain in the domain of math start looking at for instance a generalized genetic algorithm solver which uses abstractions that make it agnostic to genetic representation, fitness evaluation and reproduction strategy. It's a tall order, but it forces you to think a lot about what the correct abstractions are, and how to generalize
>>
>>8208594
That's fucking interesting man, what language do you suggest I learn? Right now I'm trying out Haskell for shits 'n giggles and I kinda like it.

And why does everyone hate Matlab? It's faster than Python.

Would you agree that "life" (distinct from "existence" which comprises matter that is not conscious/doesn't experience) is simply a succession of uninterrupted experience? And said experience is simply what the entire universe is doing at that particular place filtered through the prism of one's senses and ego? This whole process is changing, warping, chasing entropy at every passing smallest unit of time like an incredibly complicated rapid crashing through its own contours and is only given context, meaning, and a semblance of regularity because...
