RE: Richard Feynman
Man, Tesla was just a freak of nature and the funny thing is that he considered himself "stupid" compared to his big brother who died in his childhood.
If you read his biography you can literally attribute his brain power to his genetic background; his mom came from a family of inventors and created a couple things and his dad was known to be a really bright man.

He could create complex design in his minds, make modifications and test his inventions without writing down a thing; and when he finally decided to create the damn thing for real it worked properly.

He also predicted computers, and a WHOLE bunch of things we haven't even created yet, of course the government had to take and hide some of his stuff. I am not done reading his biography but the little I have already read blew my mind.

Feynman was also ridiculously amazing as well and was also equipped with tremendous brain power but Tesla was just out there.
I think if there is a human being who could stand on the same ground as Newton, that man would be Tesla.

RE: Richard Feynman
For those of us not familiar with Feynman's views on women can some of the regular posters in this thread fill us in?

He sounds like a fascinating person and his take on "the game" would make for interesting discussion.

PS: Another great intellect and personality was Carl Sagan. Love his "Cosmos" documentary. One of the best series ever.

Here is a link I gave at the start of the thread.

Richard Feynman was definitely 'red pill' when it came to women. Sadly though - the link above is written by some kind of feminist who is trying to use it to attack Feynman.

OK. Great, thanks. Nice take on the drink buying debate.

RE: Richard Feynman
Those of you who find Feynman inspiring would probably find Kary Mullis also inspiring. He invented polymerase chain reaction (PCR). He surfs. He does LSD. He's a heretic. He believes in Astrology. He's a womanizer. Feminists hate him. He won the Nobel prize.

Haha, read this:

Quote:Extraterrestrial life

Mullis writes of having once spoken to a glowing green raccoon. Mullis arrived at his cabin in the woods of northern California around midnight one night in 1985, and, having turned on the lights and left sacks of groceries on the floor, set off for the outhouse with a flashlight. On the way, he saw something glowing under a fir tree. Shining the flashlight on this glow, it seemed to be a raccoon with little black eyes. The raccoon spoke, saying, "Good evening, doctor," and he replied with a "hello". Mullis later speculated that the raccoon "was some sort of holographic projection and… that multidimensional physics on a macroscopic scale may be responsible". Mullis denies LSD having anything at all to do with this.

This guy sounds awesome. Thanks for pointing him out Icarus. You guys in the States should invite him to the next RooshV meetup.

Strange thing is that it seems that a much larger percent of hyper-smart people believe in the supernatural than merely smart people. Doesn't prove anything either way but it is fascinating psychologically. My take, for what it's worth, is that if you are just absurdly smart ordinary reality is just too humdrum for you. I mean, if you're one of the very few people who actually understand subjects like Quantum Mechanics what is there that can challenge you (apart from a strong independent BBW that is)? You have to create something even weirder in your mind just for the challenge.

PS: Yes, I'm familiar with the saying that if you think you understand Quantum Mechanics you don't understand Quantum Mechanics.

You may wanna read this 1992 interview with Mullis. Some funny excerpts:

Quote:It was a shock for the audience, so soon after breakfast. The keynote speaker at "Nucleic Acids: New Frontiers," a San Diego conference of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, was giving his slide talk. Then, right after a scientific chart, there flashed on the huge screen a sharply defined image of the speaker's ex-girlfriend clad only in a multicolored Mandelbrot fractal pattern, generated by computer and projected with considerable transparency onto her skin. As a nervous frisson rippled through the auditorium, the speaker Kary Mullis was unabashed. "This is my home town, and I can do what I like!" he joked. Indeed, no one seemed to mind this and other examples of his "creativity." As a young woman chemist said afterwards, Mullis might be "a sexist pig," but his ideas were "so refreshing, I could have listened to him all day."

Quote:OMNI: Are you sexist?

Mullis: No, but a lot of people think so. I show pictures of naked women, that's why! I like naked women. I like them with their clothes on, too, but if you're gonna take a picture, you might as well take it with them naked. I show them with those Mandelbrots on them. This is my art! If you don't like it, close your eyes. I gave a lecture in Naples to a math department about how fractals were generated, interspersed with pictures of naked women with Mandelbrots. It went over real big. They wanted copies of my slides. They didn't call me sexist, though it's hard to be a sexist in Italy. But almost always someone comes up and says you can't show those kinds of pictures. It's not politically correct. I've cut down on it now because it causes me so much trouble. Women are some of my best friends and the people I confide in most. But sometimes the harder you try to say you sympathize with their problems, the more some people just sneer and say, "Sure."

RE: Richard Feynman
Bumping this thread after reading a good article on the great man


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/10036...thing.html

Quote:He became something of a womaniser, dating undergraduates and hanging out with show girls and prostitutes in Las Vegas. In a celebrated book of anecdotes about his life – Surely You’re Joking Mr Feynman – the scientist recounts how he applied an experimental approach to chatting up women. Having assumed, like most men, that you had to start by offering to buy them a drink, he explains how a conversation with a master of ceremonies at a nightclub in Albuquerque one summer prompted him to change tactics. And to his surprise, an aloof persona proved far more successful than behaving like a gentleman.

Its great book and every entertaining. One of the cool things you get from the book is how to think a little differently as Feynman explains his thought process compare to everyone else. Other thing is his complaints of foreign students memorizing material instead of actual thinking about it.

Finally got around to getting Surely You're Joking at the weekend. I'm already about halfway through it - it's quite good so far.
