So many here think they are genius level. Some are grasping for knowledge they will not understand just now. Anyone who has a grasp of the magnitude of the undertaking of mathematics and physics will appreciate how little they know.
Before this is disregarded, I am a physics student and I want rigorous mathematical and physical viewpoints.
Discuss.

This is not philosophy. This is a generalization of the power and truth of logical pursuit. Do not confuse emotional appreciation with unfounded philosophical ''disciplines''.

This thread is worthless. You're trying to force a discussion about topics we've all discussed a dozen times before, and/or would rather talk about something else more interesting.

Astrophysics grad student here, who the fuck cares. This isn't as profound as you think it is.

How in the fuck is the coefficient of expansion truly measured? Surely any error analysis would be rendered defunct by the ineptitude and failings of modern astronomical instruments and theory?
Also, don't be reduced to shit by being desensitized to questions. That is how you end up being a lifeless husk of a human being. Have a talk about your thoughts. Let's hear them.

This guy hit the nail on the head, really. You sound like an asshole with a penchant for using big words when they are completely unnecessary. The OP particularly is a massive clusterfuck of entirely superfluous diction that not only drags out an incredibly simple statement but also forces awkward grammar in an attempt to fit in as many words as possible. It reads like a philosophy student's first paper. It's so shitty that I had to resort to similar tactics just to illuminate the problem.

>>6844395
This is the problem, you've come here seeking high-level discussion of an unspecified topic. That's normally fine, but then you have this air of haughtiness that pollutes the entire thread. To top it all off, you've claimed that you don't want any philosophical bullshit yet your very own posts are riddled with it.

Ridiculous.

Philosophy is not what you seem to think it is. I like using big words because they help me express my meaning more accurately. It has nothing to do with pretentiousness. The bigger the word (generally) the more specific the meaning. And I'm fairly good at remembering them. About the only thing I'm good at remembering.
Tell me some of your thoughts of late, that you feel have import to the viewpoint of the scientific community just now. I want to know some more opinions on things.
There's no need for hostility. I know several people at uni that I constantly feel like telling to shut the fuck up, because they honestly talk an impressive amount of shit.
Over the interwebs, I have a chance at hearing some well-founded thoughts.

Having a large vocabulary is fine and all, but using it to dress up nearly meaningless statements, such as
>Anyone who has a grasp of the magnitude of the undertaking of mathematics and physics will appreciate how little they know.
is what makes it pretentious. It sounds like you are trying to be hot shit while not knowing the shit you are spouting is borderline devoid of content.

So, what do you want to discuss? My specialty is highly correlated quantum gases.

You do realize the "cynical" (read: completely logical) person you're talking to is actually 2+ people, right?

Not only do you continue to misuse words and over-complicate simple statements, but you're also becoming more and more demanding of others without contributing at all yourself.

If you want to talk about something, provide a topic. If you want to talk about multiple somethings, provide multiple topics. We're not here to recite the entirety of our scientific knowledge to you simply because you demand it.

Be specific.

Yes, I know. I thought he was the only one here.

Addition/subtraction is manipulating quanta of information.
Multiplication/division is manipulating collections of information.
Differentiation/Integration is manipulating infinitely many and infinitely small collections of data.
Next steps?
Probably requires mathematics and physics to stop throwing around infinity like they know what the fuck it means.

No 3rd year. Stop the cynicism. No one cares how smart you think you are, it's the internet. Over the last week of your life, have you came to any quaint thoughts or feelings?
I find it quite funny that whenever people talk, they always bitch about how people only talk about themselves. But when someone only asks about you, there is only hostility and defences.
Shit doesn't have to be like that.

I don't mind talking about myself or my field of study, I do it every single day on this board to countless strangers who do the same to me.

Those people don't speak or write like overconfident college students. I didn't think I'd ever have a use for such a stupid phrase, but your posts ooze try-hard. Every single post you've made sounds like it is either trying to prove some profound point, trying to impress us, or both. I don't care if it's how you like to talk, a good half dozen people have come to tell you how obtrusive and generally disruptive to conversation it proves. Not many people are going to want to talk with you unless you change your speaking habits.

>No one cares how smart you think you are, it's the internet.
Herein lies the irony in your posts. Get over yourself, and then you'll find a lot more people willing to engage in conversation with you.

Okay niggers I'm going to bed. I thought someone would take the opportunity to share their thoughts on some deeper meanings in the context of a life of science. But obviously that isn't happening on /sci. I'll have to look elsewhere.
Protip: Speaking about deep and meaningful subjects doesn't have to be dragged down by cynicism and coldness. You know much. Take time to share it. That's all that will be left after you are a rotten corpse or a pile of ashes.

No one is trying to show how smart they are, its more trying to show you your blindness to how you are posting like an asshat.

FTFY.

Now go rewrite every sentence you uttered to remove the unnecessary filler and improve your conversational efficiency with a new thread, so that people can actually discuss things. How do you expect anyone to say anything to you when they have to wade through a bunch of unnecessary and convoluted filth just to get a simply reply?

Fuck, probably got half an hour left in me.
Language needs to be used to it's full extent when expressing complex meanings. Hence why a few of you think I am pretentious. Far from it. Also, screw your 'hurr durr muh graduation'.
But fuck all that.
What are the most important questions to you guys? You would never have taken a degree in physics/maths if you didn't have a curious mind. Share.

The human pursuit of meaning is worthless. You do with your life what you like.

I like the challenge of science. That's all. Money, fame, recognition is worthless when you have a curious mind to satisfy.

The thread is still pointless

There is nothing complex in what you are asking. You are asking in essence an incredibly simple question, but it is dressed in layers of pretense. You are asking nothing that is profound, and even if you were then it would be the answers that required such language, not the question.

This is the question that is currently important to me: how can you be so blind as to not see the hypocrisy in your every post?

Oh the irony! This statement is the embodiment of pretense. You are evidently able to judge for yourself whether you are pretentious or not!

The very claim that you are not pretentious is in itself pretentious. Such a claim is beyond your power to make, because it is a judgment passed on you by others. You evidently lack the self awareness to realize what you are doing here. You have many people in this very thread telling you that you are pretentious, yet you are evidently capable of invalidating their judgments with but three words. Who on earth wants to talk to someone so arrogant as to dismiss their views so easily?

I'm genuinely beginning to believe that you're nothing more than an elaborate ruseman.
