10140 New breakthrough discovery—every quantum particle travels backwards Ah, this is bad/sensationalist science reporting. [etc] I look at it this way- causality is an emergent phenomenon that only applies at the macro level.  At the quantum level, there really isn't any such thing as "backwa...

You do not have to enter the brackets.
You have to type something like this here. 'LandTo 18.247 -133.173 4000'

Thanks Jack, I tried that but still got the same error :(  I just altered the numbers a bit.

11342 But haven't we visually detected exoplanets? I remember seeing a gif showing 5 giant exoplanets orbiting a single star and the view was from above- the kind of thing I wish we could do with our own solar system! There have been a few.  It is easiest for for large planets that are far from the...

UFO Sightings and Possible Explanations

11334 But I don't know why you disagree that we have advanced technology for aircraft. Why would government show all of their weapons? I think it is logical for them to hide it. I never said that there were no secret, advanced aircraft. I said that it was difficult to explain what I saw, even with ...

UFO Sightings and Possible Explanations

11354 Doc, how do you explain what you saw? Can't.  One can make a lot of guesses and assumptions, but thats about all they would be. You're right.  I can't help but be fascinated by this topic though, especially since I was a big fan of the X-files on a variety of levels (moreso having to do with ...

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

11347 a cyclic universe would actually work by creating a new universe from a higher entropy state. If this is the case it would be so far into the future that any civilizations would have long since run out of usable energy.  You're right, and it only applies if the value of W is negative if I rem...

I am getting the unknown command error :(  As you can see I've already selected The Earth (I'm actually on the surface of it in the program.)

11361 Are yousure? The console tells me "unknown comand" ' LandTo ' only works up to SE 0.980 . In SE 0.981 , the commands are very different. In SE 0.981 you have to enter something like this: ' Goto {Time 2.0 Height 200 Lat 63.069167 Lon -151.007778} ' Sounds like we are adding programm...
