Appeal to ethics is a cucking surrogate for a lack of power. If decision-makers rationalize whatever action benefits them the most then why would they care about a thought exercise that involves maximizing the total happiness of a population?

Well (lack of) light is to do with particles, not atoms. So the correct statement is that everything is particles. Dreams are just electrical impulses. There, materialism wins again. It always wins.

Shadows still need material to form, you can't form shadows out of nothing. Dreams are neuro-electric phenomena ultimately. Imagine getting tongue-tied by a little girl's questions. Next.

What's the subject?
In most cases, it's just the matter of doing problems, and compare it to the "model" solution. See what you miss/misunderstan/etc. Make a note. Refer back to it when you solve the next problems.
Priorities:
1. HWs
2. Quizzes
3. Mid-terms
4. Past exams (even from a different prof)
5. Past HWs, etc.
6. Textbook problems
7. Problem book

Best study strategy:
Go to class and learn material
When you don't understand something, go ask or put in the effort to understand it
When it comes time for a test, you'll already know the material

Sounds like you have enough time to put in the effort to understand the specific things you don't know. Go ask targeted questions

Scientifically speaking why don't we have an internet of all things already? Like sensors and camaras on every tree, bird's nest, spider web, all over the ocean's floor and in every cave. Like experiments with millions of flowers and bees and batches of micro-organisms each one growing in slightly different circumstances. Like fully automated and autonomous factories running these experiments for multiple lifetimes.

Fake and gay. Simplistic comparisons are made on land use, without regard to land quality.
A lot of marginal land which can't economically grow nutritious human-grade crops is used to grow fodder for cattle. If it could be used to grow crops, it would, because crops yield much more money per acre for farmers than livestock do.

Lol no, those who are marketable are those who get mentioned in the news. Do you really think the news is going to show and interview some introverted Indian or Chinese man who forsaked all social ties to spend 95% of their adult lives in a lab to understand cryptic knowledge? Or some European with decent communication skills that learned about the works and expanded on it?

That's literally the story of modern immunology and computer science. Inoculation and Variolation along with binary system was Indian and Chinese origin. But everyone is more familiar with the European contemporaries and their commentary on the subject matter. No one talks about the IChing but people do talk about Gottfried.

They get deleted once their civilizations use up too much computational power in the simulation.

https://akarlin.com/katechon/

>Abstract: A corollary of the Simulation Argument is that the universe’s computational capacity may be limited. Consequently, advanced alien civilizations may have incentives to avoid space colonization to avoid taking up too much “calculating space” and forcing a simulation shutdown. A possible solution to the Fermi Paradox is that analogous considerations may drive them to avoid broadcasting their presence to the cosmos, and to attempt to destroy or permanently cripple emerging civilizations on sight. This game-theoretical equilibrium could be interpreted as the “katechon” – that which withholds eschaton – doom, oblivion, the end of the world. The resulting state of mutually assured xenocide would result in a dark, seemingly empty universe intermittently populated by small, isolationist “hermit” civilizations.
