None, although I could have partly contributed. You see I was part of a top secret intergovernmental research team working for certain organizations that I'd be a moron to mention and I helped develop an implementation of a algorithm that among other things solved the R*em*nn Hyp*thesis. However political wrangling meant that we ended up destroying all the proof, coding, waved magnets over harddrives and dumped them somewhere inaccessible to humans. You might think this was a loss to humanity, but we realized especially because of one particular agency that was involved in the project, if they got their hands on the decrypter we built it'd be GG not just for personal liberties in general, but we realized that everyone who worked on the project would be permanently blackmailed. It wasn't out of some kind of great desire to prevent tyranny, our "team leader" was trying to protect his own ass and we all agreed.
It is a shame in some ways, the way it solved certain ciphers was ridiculously elegant. But also there's a reason why I'm free to shitpost anonymously and reveal this now, and it's thanks to the totally selfish self-preservation instinct of our otherwise incredibly genius team. No I won't answer further questions. But this thread just made me wonder what could have been.
The next team might be more driven by a sense of duty or have more oversight from their superiors, and that's what scares me.

that's a good insight, thanks. Well, I think that someone who does have a strong intuition could still benefit from training- its not a guarantee that they would fuck up in the way you described, if anything, trained Ramanujan could realize the lack of efficiency of this formula and start theorizing ways to simplify it. Although this would require a strong intuition to begin with, someone without it would be more likely to just go along with the rules because that's just how it is or whatever. Maybe personality has something to do with it to, has to, he was noted for being very curious, I'm sure he would question it.

It is known that he had an exceptional memory and could recall complex mathematical formulas after hearing them just once. He also had a deep understanding of mathematics and was able to see relationships between different concepts that others missed. Additionally, he was extremely creative and had the ability to come up with his own original proofs and solutions to problems.

It is difficult to say whether or not people are born with the same natural talents as Ramanujan, as it is impossible to know what goes on inside someone else's mind. However, it is clear that practice, hard work, and dedication are essential in order achieve success in mathematics (or any other field).

Ramanujan's brain was not studied after his death, so it is impossible to know for sure what made him so smart. However, some researchers believe that he may have had savant syndrome, which is a condition where people have extraordinary abilities in specific areas despite having limited overall skills.

In any case, Ramanujan was a once-in-a-generation genius and his contributions to mathematics are still being studied and appreciated today.

He had savan syndrome.

a great start would be realizing that generalized critical thinking is unteachable. i suspect there is a neural basis akin to sight; something like a contradiction, ie bullshit detector. such a structure synergistically aligned with other senses could result in what we call intuition.

It is obvious. There is so much lightning recently, because the NSA uses lightning to attack computers. They use the electricity from the lightening and transmit that to attack your computer and hack it. The NSA also injects viruses into software that have been hacked to transmit through that virus to the computer. It is obvious that the government is involved.

This is just a theory and I'm not sure how true it is, but since the NSA and the government want to hide their activities, they use electricity to carry their attacks. I know I'm stretching it, but I wanted to get the message out.

The fact that a major hurricane has formed in the Atlantic means there has been an abundance of solar energy. I don't know about before, but I think hurricanes are also created by lightening. They may have to "seed" the cloud base with lightening before a hurricane can form.

The storm that struck Cuba, and some other storms in the south Atlantic earlier this week and earlier this year, are probably caused by solar activity. They may have been spawned by a "polar" eruption somewhere in the north, and a current of electricity and magnetic fields are then carried to the southern Atlantic by the Gulf Stream, and eventually to Cuba, or some other tropical area where there is a large population and a land mass is available for it to hit. The same thing happened to me in 1983 when I was in a heavy rain storm in the South Pacific, about 2,500 miles west of the US. It was a huge cloud mass, I think at least 10,000 miles across, all the way from the tropics to about 30 degrees south of Australia.

The academic realm is real and can be directly tied to an individual experience of the world and the world around them. Here, the materials are real and an individual has direct agency within the interacting systems to shape their experience and those of their peers (Wells 2013).The absence of equitable educational outcomes and the cycle of ignorance in regard to systemic racism has been discussed at least as far back as Frances C. Harper’s short story "Two Offers" ( Harper 1859) and recently in Paolo Freire's critical pedagogy where Freire (1993) proposed "the students' misunderstanding of the role of 'teacher' [as] the result of having been taught with the 'banking concept of education,' as it had been employed in the United States, where the individual learns passively by absorbing information instead of always focusing on upping her game, always developing her own problems and committing to their resolution" (87). And while my individual experience of racism has nothing on the experiences of others, I am impacted by systemic oppression as I find myself in the center of whiteness (Collins 2008) and have all the power that comes with that. Racism was a concept that I was introduced to early in my schooling (see, e.g., chapter 1 in Jain and Henry 2007) but one which was not properly introduced when I initially took physics, until I took a physics class with a Black instructor in my sophomore year of college. Without a proper understanding of race and the systems of oppression that "operate" to reproduce white supremacy and marginalization within society, I truly felt like I hadn’t learned physics.

>> No.14624037

Behind my behavior is a set of assumptions, and some of those assumptions that guide my behavior come from my location within whiteness and what I have come to understand about whiteness through my scholarship. Collins (2008) describes whiteness as "the seat of power" (5), where the organization of social life is in terms of a center and margins that are based on dominance and control. There is a term for this definition of whiteness within Sentences and a sense of belonging in America. I will switch here. Marginalization refers to "the process by which certain groups are socially excluded by not being included in criteria such as obligations, expectations, and values" (Cohen 2017, 63); this is qualified by marginalization as "being forced to occupy the lowest levels of a social hierarchy, made to feel less than by the dominant group" (Cohen 1977, 87).In the diagrams that I keep updated in my head8 of how systems of oppression like racism or sexism work,9 I see a pole centered on the term , white, which I understand to mean "the superior letter" (Horsman 1996, 103), and consider this to be the pole that is most privileged and best positioned for success.

Based on more recently available information (particularly from Harvard), it's been shown that there is neutralization escape from the antibodies of the vaccinated (see discussion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npQ1X0C3R8w ) as well as the previously infected (to different degrees). Being aware of that, I looked to see if the graph in your post matches up at all with surges in total cases in Portugal as well as when there were spikes in people getting boosted. As far as I can tell with a simple search, there was no reported spike in cases from March to May (see pic rel). The spikes from Jan-Feb and less so from May-July do seem to coincide with waves of new cases. It does make me wonder how there was a relatively large amount of COVID deaths from March to April with no spike in new cases, though. Was there a surge in boosters being administered in Portugal at that point in time? I couldn't immediately find any data like that online, so perhaps it's worth looking into if you care to.

Im making a drug that aims to increase nr2b subunits levels on the surface of neurons, (therefor nmda receptors) in many brain areas that govern memory, learning, focus and recall. Technically ive started synthesis but its a while away yet, like 3months away. Research NR2B and you'll be excited. Headstart: doogie mice.
Im using peptides and polysaccharides that occur naturally, so, its at least kinda safe lol. Ofc nmda, and nr2b in particular can cause neural death. So, we'll try to avoid it. Using Davunetide seems best. And deferoxamine most likely.
as it happens there is a protein that forms the nmda receptor which allows for ions to travel past the membrane for a longer period of time which allows for neurons to engage in certain bandwidths of activity for a longer period of time allowing for information processing in the Cortex to occur more reliably and to a Greater extent this is the nr2b receptor and there will be things available to improve its function to improve learning of many different kinds and theoretically iq due to the dependency on sustained activity. There are peptides small molecules and soon-to-be RNA molecules and conjugates that hopefully will be great at safely increasing the function of this receptor and there are things at the moment which of very very expensive but soon I hear that a peptide will be made to help modulate this receptor and it could be cheap.

I have photographic memory of the mechanisms behind the pathology of cognitive decline and metabolic disorder and recall speed is instant. I can spend hours typing non stop, no decline in cognitive function throughout the day.I don't have any anxiety or fears. I am incredibly emotionally resilient to the point that I don't experience negative feelings. All of the other people that have joined me have noticed substantial gains including a man who claimed a gram of deferoxamine increased his IQ 1 standard deviation by having a cognitive function test.
I have more ambitious goals in teaching as many people neuroscience as possible and proposing deferoxamine for the mitigation of all disorders of cognitive decline and metabolic disorders. There's a lot to be done.

It's so fucking funny reading about midwits taking it, listening to Terrence McKenna, and babbling about how profound for hours upon hours. This is truly schizo territory
