Re: Fermi's questions!!!Physics uses math but Fermi is a physicist. Not complaining about the questions just saying why I will not be posing any. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #102 20120204 21:14:01
Re: Fermi's questions!!!Sorry, forgot that you want me to bump threads here rather than tack on to an existing post. Since this is your thread I will comply. and due to the fact that the thickness of a sheet of paper is between .07mm and .18mm. M37 a star cluster in the dreaded Orions belt is 4400 light years away. While NGC 7380 in Cepheus is 11500 light years away. So it is obvious we do not need super luminar capabilities, just a lot of paper! We could stack em up and climb to those places. First we must grow giant trees for the paper: http://www.mathisfunforum.com/viewtopic … 04#p116604 In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Fermi's questions!!!Hmmmm? I thought you would say something else. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Fermi's questions!!!Okay, based on my newest pat down of 63 people the average human Now there is the little matter of their height. I went for headroom here. Gave them 91 inches because some humans are that tall. So I have them in a square room ( the floor is a square ) that is In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Fermi's questions!!!I have to disagree, These are all people east of your timezone by 3 hours or more. That is night for them. In mathematics, you don't understand things.
