Born to do Math 128 - Hard and Fast Rules on Physical Dynamics

Born to do Math 128 - Hard and Fast Rules on Physical Dynamics
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
July 15, 2019

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Another possibility if you're thinking of really, really big construction projects. You'd probably be thinking of massive manipulation of gravitation to move stuff around.

Rick Rosner: I think there are some hard and fast rules to physical dynamics. The speed of light might be one thing, or the travel faster than the speed of light.

Jacobsen: I would think of contracting space to move faster than the speed of light for transportation through space.

Rosner: They talk about warp drives. That would require the large scale manipulation of matter. I think there are many properties of the universe that are really hard to get around, so that you don't get miracles with faster than light travel being a miracle, kind of. 

If civilization is able to last long enough to travel across a galaxy, it might have the power to manipulate or move large objects, but in a way that would take advantage of natural phenomena because purely being able to engineer whatever you want will run you into limits on what you want to do. 

If you want to construct a quasar, for instance, a civilization may be able to do that, but it might take, at the fastest, 30 to 40 million years. So, a civilization might want to take advantage of things that are either already quasars or are close to being quasars. 

If you wanted to hose down some part of the universe, or if you wanted to propel some things somewhere, you might want to use structures that already exist. Things can't suck over all areas of its surface. You want to get something that has things that can escape, like with the jets that might be able to rotate over a period of millions of years.

The jets point in the direction that you find helpful. That, to us, not knowing shit about any of this, just wildly speculating, the direction of quasars don't indicate anything to us, let alone anything about intentionality. However, if you did a large-scale sky survey and found weird regularities in the direction of massive quasars that are spraying stuff, then, at the very least, you can speculate about causes. 

Again, the end.

Rick Rosner

(Updated March 7, 2019)

He has received 8 Writers Guild Award and Emmy nominations, and was named 2013 North American Genius of the Year by The World Genius Registry.

He has written for Remote ControlCrank YankersThe Man ShowThe EmmysThe Grammys, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. He worked as a bouncer, a nude art model, a roller-skating waiter, and a stripper. In a television commercial, Domino’s Pizza named him the "World’s Smartest Man." The commercial was taken off the air after Subway sandwiches issued a cease-and-desist. He was named "Best Bouncer" in the Denver Area, Colorado, by Westwood Magazine.

Rosner spent much of the late Disco Era as an undercover high school student. In addition, he spent 25 years as a bar bouncer and American fake ID-catcher, and 25+ years as a stripper, and nearly 30 years as a writer for more than 2,500 hours of network television. He came in second or lost on Jeopardy!, sued Who Wants to Be a Millionaire over a flawed question and lost the lawsuit. He won one game and lost one game on Are You Smarter Than a Drunk Person? (He was drunk). Finally, he spent 37+ years working on a time invariant variation of the Big Bang Theory. 

Currently, Rosner sits tweeting in a bathrobe (winter) or a towel (summer). He lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife, dog, and goldfish. He and his wife have a daughter. You can send him money or questions at LanceversusRick@Gmail.Com, or a direct message via Twitter, or find him on LinkedIn, or see him on YouTube.
