Re: WARP derived from known physics

Dude, the people on here have repeatedly asked for more detail and all you have done is come up with excuses. If you can't supply the math, then you will never be able to do anything with your "lucid visualizations" anyways. Even if you do come up with a working idea for warp drive, if you can't communicate it, then it won't do anyone any good.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...

I'd appreciate it if things didn't get too personal. I'd prefer not to close this thread.

Re: WARP derived from known physics

prometheuspan, the fact that you are surprised by and increasingly hostile toward our reactions to your unsupported "axioms" suggests that it is you who is unfamiliar with the realities of working in science, not us. If you cannot coherently explain "Axioms" #6 and #12, just to pick two, from first principles, then we're correct to think you have nothing.

Re: WARP derived from known physics

I do wish you luck in your quest for an FTL drive mate, though this forum may not align well with the sort of feedback you seek.

To step out of trekish ramblings for a moment, the likely impossibility (or at least extreme difficulty) of real FTL drive is probably a built-in safety feature of the universe against the likely exploitative ambitions of any species that's in it's technical infancy - like us. Maybe the answers to the FTL problems follow a few thousand (million?) years of technical (and moral) development.

We might be better served with our best and brightest solving climatic and economic problems right now.

Re: WARP derived from known physics

I am truly bored talking about me and sure you have all sorts of insights into warp theory that would be much more interesting.
"Unlike those with autism, people with AS are not usually withdrawn around others; they approach others, even if awkwardly, for example by engaging in a one-sided, long-winded speech about a favorite topic while being oblivious to the listener's feelings or reactions, such as signs of boredom or haste to leave" - Section 2 Social Disorder.

I hate to attack you personally however the problem is obvious. You do not posses the social skills to have a conversation with 99% of the population. Your rantings have been nothing short of one sided, and further more you have been ignoring most of what we've been saying here. We have tried to give our two cents but it's clear that you don't want to hear it. As far as alpha dog, I only see you trying to have the last word and it seems to be only your "axioms" that are the correct way to go. This community has rejected your theory. Clean it up and make more sense and we'll be happy to review it again.

I think the OP's stance requires it, personally, but it is clear nothing of substance is going to come out of it, so I will no longer waste my time perusing or participating in it.

None of these arguments should be personal.
