"It's not who you are, it's who you know." Is this a joke? If it doesn't matter who you are, how does it ever begin to matter who you know? If any particular person has zero significance, how does any particular zero knowing another zero, or many zeros, suddenly become significant? What a silly, sel...

Of all the people I have met in real life, on the spectrum, they have all had very different personalities from one another as well as differences in the way and degree their spectrum traits manifested. And not all men with AS have the relationship problems of many of the men on this forum. Well, y...

As hale_bopp said; personality, not neurology, is what's important. Of course, much of personality depends on neurology. I disagree. Neurology is one (of many) factors that influence personality, but personality doesn't "depend" on neurology. I said much, not all, of personality depends on neurolog...

The difference between genius and non-genius is about as big a difference as the difference between aspie and non-aspie (perhaps even more so). So of course brilliant aspies are going to seem fundamentally different. Genius NTs also look fundamentally different from non-genius NTs.

Wow, no one included the Jazz Master. Shows how much you all know (:mrgreen:). I've mentioned him on another Jazz thread and I'll mention him on this one: Art Tatum. Absolutely amazing, the parts from 0:24 to 0:34, 1:09 to 1:12, and the convoluted ending in this improvised piece (one of my favorites...

If our universe were but one member of a multiverse of randomly ordered worlds, then it is vastly more probable that we should be observing a much smaller universe. We already know that we're not in a small universe. And we can't be in a small universe. A small universe would expand too rapidly and...

I once knew this fella from work who seemed to value rational thought. He also believed in God. So I thought that if I asked him a simple question regarding the soundness of his belief, he wouldn’t lash out on me. I asked him, “What’s the strongest evidence for God’s existence?”, and he suddenly fel...

Is desiring a intellectually smart mate something pre-programmed that everyone wants? Is it just me? Desiring a person in the intermediate zones of smartness, probably. The relatively unimpressive I.Q.s of 120 or so, if we're going to use I.Q.s as intelligence quantifiers. People in the 140s and up...

Okay, thanks huntedman for the examples. The concept is not that difficult to grasp afterall. The tricky part is using this mathematically precise concept as an example for something that is currently vaguely understood (which is how I want to use it). Also, thanks to Chronos for the link, which I w...

Hmm, Can someone perhaps offer me an example of something that has underwent an affine transformation from it’s previous state? And what exactly happened in that transformation. Thanks.

I would love it if someone could explain to me what an affine transformation is. I think I know what it is, but am still greatly uncertain. I’m trying to use it as a creative metaphor for something I am writing, and I really don’t want to screw it up. So, it would be very nice if someone could, in h...

My favorite quote on science, though, comes from a fanfic, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality , based on the question of how the Harry Potter series would have been different if young Harry's aunt had married a noted scholar and professor, rather than the proletariat lump she married in th...

Art Tatum was the greatest musical instrumentalist ever.
