This was recently answered by a scientific study, estimating that the current volume of virus circulating in humans would probably fit inside a coke can.If you gathered up all the coronavirus in the world, how big would the blob be?
Would it fill a cup, a refrigerator, a house?
Are boxes breadcrumbs actualy crumbs from slicing bread in factory, or to they toast/shred bread up?
Don't worry about it. People can turn notifications off if they don't want them. That's my philosophy about any communication medium.I've just thought of this one, when I wasn't in the shower, but does that still count as a shower though? Huh, is that shower though (Concept) Inception? freaky.
BUT ONTO THE REAL ONE!
I wonder if my pretense here bothers people. I post a lot and I guess people get loads of notifications. I dont want to bother people but like.. I I dunno, maybe I'm over thinking it.
Thank you. I am guilty of sometimes doing that, not to be rude but because I wish to have a conversation with them that's sorta pressing (At least in my mind.) I never mean offense by it.Don't worry about it. People can turn notifications off if they don't want them. That's my philosophy about any communication medium.
Only time that kind of stuff bothers me is if someone asks "are you there?" or something when I don't immediately reply to something. I think most people would agree that's rude, though.
This concept is elegantly explored in detail in the classic mathematical fantasy, 'Flatland: a Romance of Many Dimensions'. Another interesting thing of note is that Marvel's 'Tesseract' gets its name from a theoretical geometric figure representing a four-dimensional cube, aka the Hypercube.Most people see themselves as 3rd dimensional beings. After all, it's the highest dimension everyone's able to consciously observe (with the exception of those conducting quantum experiments, sort of). But what about the possibility of your observation being a slice of the 4th dimension?
Well, the average person sleeps 6.3 hours each 24 hour period, which is 26.25% of the time. We can extrapolate from this that a similar percentage of the world's total population is asleep at any one time, but that ignores the fact that people aren't evenly distributed over the world, so let's adjust for that. The densest populations in the world are in India and China, and their combined width falls into five time zones, so if we expand a little around that we can net approximately 6.3 hours of time. We'll take into account the full population of China, Mongolia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, The Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, North and South Korea and Sri Lanka, plus half of Russia, Kazakhstan, Australia and Japan. This gives a total population in the region of 2,654,866,338 people, or around 35% of the world's total population. In the interests of simplicity, we will assume that the people who do not sleep at the usual time, such as night shift workers or people with insomnia, are made up for at least in part by their counterparts around the world who are asleep when most others in there area are awake, but since the netted area accounts for significantly more potential sleepers than any other single area of like size, we ought to weight our estimate downward a little.I wonder what the largest ever number of people simultaneously asleep is. Billions? 30% of the world's population? 40%?
Hey, yeah, a buddy and I actually talked about time as a spacial dimension like that recently. Actually it's a popular theory that everything in the universe happens all at once, and expanded beings could explore time the same way we explore a room -- but with our simple monkey brains, we're stuck in a fixed perspective of unaltered seconds, minutes, hours... simply ticking ticking away, toward the unknown, distant floor as you say.This concept is elegantly explored in detail in the classic mathematical fantasy, 'Flatland: a Romance of Many Dimensions'. Another interesting thing of note is that Marvel's 'Tesseract' gets its name from a theoretical geometric figure representing a four-dimensional cube, aka the Hypercube.
It's also worth noting that there are far more than three recognised dimensions - for example, temperature is a dimension - but not all of them could be thought of as spacial dimensions in the same way as up, down, forwards, backwards etc. But how about this: if we consider time as the 'fourth dimension', think about how we can only move forward through time, and that as we do so, things change shape fluidly as if connected. Maybe then it could be determined that time is itself a spacial dimension - time literally IS space - we are simply incapable of seeing or moving freely in that direction, only falling towards some unknown, distant floor.
