Tell me /sci/, is solving a problem merely a question of duration? Could anyone solve any problem given enough time, or are some problems so complex that no amount could be enough?

If so, then what exactly is the reason for that?

Shouldn't any problem be reducible to simpler building blocks that in turn can be reduced even more, depending on the need of how low you need to go? So then if time isn't the only constraint, what else is there? Memory capacity that can only deal with so many blocks and concepts at once? Can a single such block/concept that can be reduced no more be too complex to understand?

If not, and if memory isn't a factor (whether it is or not in the first place, I'll leave open for discussion), shouldn't any problem be solvable with enough time, basically also implying that anyone can achieve anything intellectually given enough discipline (so that the only limiting factor becomes how much time and energy one can invest, which I know isn't limitless but still) and assuming at least average intelligence with no disabilities?

Whoops I have no idea why I worded myself so badly but what I really wanted to ask was:

Is learning a CONCEPT a question of duration?

I'm interested in the learning of concepts and whether there are concepts that cannot be learned because they cannot be broken down to simpler concepts/the simplest "building block" concepts they consist of are too complex even by themselves.

I hope I don't need to make a new thread with a new OP.

How hard is a Math major? I know Physics and EE are considered hard, but where does math rank on the STEM list. How far into math can one get if their i.q is 135, and what's the highest GPA they can get? 120 iq? 110? 100? etc
Why are math GPAs usually lower than other STEM majors? Is it because people apply without having any knowledge as to what higher math is?

How hard is a Math major?
It's trivial. The proof is left as an exercise to the reader.

>> No.9064479

I can answer this though
>Why are math GPAs usually lower than other STEM majors?
it's because math profs have a more precise grading policy and they stick to it. It is also easier to justify that grade when some brainlet starts whining about getting a low one. It's the same reason why STEM in general has lower GPAs than non-STEM.

I think this is the right place to post this, and i hope that some of you guys can give a serious and honest opinion on this. Especially to those guys in like Harvard or Yale or any top tier school, have you seen shady shit?

There are people right, they go to universities, those universities are owned by the wealthy, so there are people in those institutions that answer to the people that own these schools, because i mean, someone has to own them right, someone has to fund them. Now, those people that go to these universities, they get taught by people who work at the school, who in turn answer to the people that fund them. How can we trust what's being taught in these schools? These people are really smart, how do we know we're being told everything? and not just enough to get hired by the companies that fund these schools (if this is even the case), is there a sure method either through science or through mathematics, even physics and philosophy that can prove to us that what we are learning is true to human logic or human nature if that makes sense, i don't know why but have this weird feeling that some of the shit we learn at schools is bs that the higher ups want to learn for their agenda and not for the love of learning and understanding the world. Like computer nerds all want to get hired by google and microsoft and stuff like that, so they go to schools and they get turned into tools to be used by these companies. I don't want to go to university to be a brainwashed cuck, i want to go for my personal education not to be trained to be a fuck boy slave for some faggot company.
tl;dr is the stuff being taught at higher education institutions bs? or is it actually stuff that people years ago developed for us to better understand the world and not for companies that fund these schools to abuse and hire those people that graduate to help them control the world.

old thread >>>9053327

Lets start with figure A.
. First look at the horizontal lines.
. Notice the lines are made of two segments.
. Add the lines up.
. Each line has two segments, and there are three lines. 2*3 = 6.
. Now look at the vertical lines.
. Add them up. The sum is 6.
. Add the sum of the vertical and horizontal lines. 6+6=12.
. You can attribute a value of 12 to figure A.

Now let's look at figure B.
. The sum of the horizontal lines is 12.
. The sum of the vertical lines is 12.
. The sum of the vertical and horizontal lines is 24.
. You can attribute a value of 24 to figure B.

Figure A=12. Figure B=24. Figure B is twice the value of figure A. If figure A = 5, then figure B must equal 10.

Am I wrong?

Can we have a purely scientific discussion on treating homosexuality and transsexualism?

What hypotheses have shown the most promise? Which areas are worth further study?

There was a study a few years ago where bisexuality was induced in mice by altering them to not have serotonin receptors, but not full homosexuality. As far as I know though, SSRI's don't reverse homosexuality in humans and generally decrease sex drive. Even drugs that flood the brain with serotonin like MDMA don't change the sexuality of humans. What is your interpretation of the serotonin system on the sexual orientation of humans?
