Post some fucking plants
Pic is a dragon's blood tree (Dracaena cinnabari). They are named for the red sap that they produce and look like something out of a sci-fi movie. They are native to the socotra archipelago in Yemen.
The sap can be used for dyes, medication, lipstick, or varnish.
The densely packed crown of the tree provides shade to the trees roots and helps to prevent water from evaporating.

These are Joshua Trees (Yucca brevifolia). They should look very familiar if you are a fan of fallout new vegas, but they are real plants not the product of an irradiated wasteland.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yucca_brevifolia
>The name Joshua tree was given by a group of Mormon settlers crossing the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. The tree's unique shape reminded them of a Biblical story in which Joshua reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer

>Joshua trees are fast growers for the desert; new seedlings may grow at an average rate of 7.6 cm (3.0 in) per year in their first ten years, then only about 3.8 cm (1.5 in) per year.[15] The trunk consists of thousands of small fibers and lacks annual growth rings, making it difficult to determine the tree's age. This tree has a top-heavy branch system, but also what has been described as a "deep and extensive" root system, with roots reaching up to 11 m (36 ft).[2] If it survives the rigors of the desert, it can live for hundreds of years; some specimens survive a thousand years. The tallest trees reach about 15 m (49 ft). New plants can grow from seed, but in some populations, new stems grow from underground rhizomes that spread out around the parent tree.


>Cahuilla Native Americans, who have lived in the southwestern United States for generations, identify this plant as a valuable resource and call it "hunuvat chiy’a" or "humwichawa". Their ancestors used the leaves of Y. brevifolia to weave sandals and baskets, in addition to harvesting the seeds and flower buds for meals.

>Rafflesia arnoldii, commonly called the corpse lily, is a species of flowering plant in the parasitic genus Rafflesia. It is noted for producing the largest individual flower on Earth. It has a very strong and unpleasant odour of decaying flesh, earning it the nickname "corpse flower". It is endemic to the rainforests of Sumatra and possibly Borneo.

The plant is commonly known simply as welwitschia in English, but the name tree tumbo is also used. It is called kharos or khurub in Nama, tweeblaarkanniedood in Afrikaans, nyanka in Damara, and onyanga in Herero. Welwitschia is the only living genus of the family Welwitschiaceae and order Welwitschiales, in the division Gnetophyta. Informal sources commonly refer to the plant as a "living fossil".[2][3] Welwitschia mirabilis is endemic to the Namib desert within Namibia and Angola.

Although, that's typical of the theory, there is application magnetically.
>Magnetism is found throughout the Universe. Magnetic fields are known to exist in planets, stars, accretion disks, the interstellar medium, galaxies and in active galactic nulcei (cf. the article on galactic magnetic fields). Often these magnetic fields are generated and maintained by magnetohydrodynamic dynamo action (e.g. the solar dynamo or planetary dynamos, which are described by hydromagnetic dynamo theory), and in many cases the magnetic field is dynamically dominant, determining the evolution of the object.
Topics studied within MHD include typical computational astrophysics topics, such as magneto-convection, MHD turbulence and hydromagnetic dynamo action. Typically, a multitude of intermittent magnetic structures are generated in such systems, e.g. magnetic flux tubes, loops, filaments and arcades. On the Sun and other stars, these magnetic structures may take the form of cool spots (sunspots) and magnetic bright points.
Magnetic structures can store enormous amounts of energy that may be released through reconnection of magnetic field lines (MHD reconnection) leading to solar flares and stellar or even galactic eruptions. It is in this way that the Sun causes storms in the heliospherical magnetic field and ultimately aurorae and space weather.

If you have installed CCleaner you likely have to reformat your system.

>CCleaner malware outbreak is much worse than it first appeared

>The recent CCleaner malware outbreak is much worse than it initially appeared, according to newly unearthed evidence. That evidence shows that the CCleaner malware infected at least 20 computers from a carefully selected list of high-profile technology companies with a mysterious payload.
>Because the CCleaner backdoor was active for 31 days, the total number of infected computers is "likely at least in the order of hundreds," researchers from Avast, the antivirus company that acquired CCleaner in July, said in their own analysis published Thursday.
>From September 12 to September 16, the highly advanced second stage was reserved for computers inside 20 companies or Web properties, including Cisco, Microsoft, Gmail, VMware, Akamai, Sony, and Samsung. The 20 computers that installed the payload were from eight of those targeted organizations, Avast said, without identifying which ones. Again, because the data covers only a small fraction of the time the backdoor was active, both Avast and Talos believe the true number of targets and victims was much bigger.

> Over four weeks, their lungs and brains grew, they sprouted wool, opened their eyes, wriggled around, and learned to swallow, according to a new study that takes the first step toward an artificial womb. One day, this device could help to bring premature human babies to term outside the uterus — but right now, it has only been tested on sheep.


> “It’s complete science fiction to think that you can take an embryo and get it through the early developmental process and put it on our machine without the mother being the critical element there,” he says.


> Instead, the point of developing an external womb — which his team calls the Biobag — is to give infants born months too early a more natural, uterus-like environment to continue developing in, Flake says.


http://archive.li/XEKMx

> Yoshinori Kuwabara, chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Juntendo University in Tokyo, has been working on artificial placentas for a decade. His interest grew out of his clinical experience with premature infants, and as he writes in a recent abstract, ”It goes without saying that the ideal situation for the immature fetus is growth within the normal environment of the maternal organism.”


> Kuwabara and his associates have kept the goat fetuses in this environment for as long as three weeks. But the doctor’s team ran into problems with circulatory failure, along with many other technical difficulties. Pressed to speculate on the future, Kuwabara cautiously predicts that ”it should be possible to extend the length” and, ultimately, ”this can be applied to human beings.”

I don't see this actually replacing women in any realistic sense, as a child ideally should grow up with a mother's care. However, it would BTFO any argument that abortion is necessary "to secure the rights of women," as an unwanted child could simply be placed into an artificial womb and after being "birthed" be given up for adoption.

One disturbing possibility could be that this is used to create clone soldiers who could be easily indoctrinated from birth to serve the elites.

A bit of backstory to begin: earlier today, I got into a conversation about quantum mechanics, more specifically the part of it where the mere act of observing particles can change their properties or behavior. That alone is a confusing concept, but now let me ask you all a question.

Given that quite a few of you believe in meme magic and the human mind's ability to influence the physical world around it, can any of you offer an idea based around this to help explain quantum mechanics?

I feel like I'm close to an answer, whether it's right or not I'm not sure, but I want to hear your results. Also, this is here and not in /vx/ because this seems more like a science issue than a paranormal one to me. Pic unrelated.

I have no deep knowledge of quantum mechanics. But I can give you an simple example of how observation changes the property.
If you take light you can measure it in two ways:
>Wavelength
>Photon count
When you measure wavelength light is an wave
When you measure photon count light is particles
>probably gross simplification and there is guaranteed a much more precise and complex explanation and description of this

Okay first off, let us define a term
Quantum Mechanics
>the branch of mechanics that deals with the mathematical description of the motion and interaction of subatomic particles, incorporating the concepts of quantization of energy, wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, and the correspondence principle.
So quantum mechanics is the behavior of subatomic particles (protons, neutrons, and electrons) and how they move.
The whole observing them changes their state is a Schrödinger's cat problem. Until we observe the atom, we don't know its state. But once we do observe it, we know for certain its state.
The way I see it?
Quantum mechanics will always happen with or without us.
But I believe the harnessing of it could result in alchemy.
If we discover a way to make an element, e.g. Mercury, give out or release an atom of hydrogen, then that atom becomes gold.
The problem would be the technology required to do this.
Can we influnce it with our minds?

Otherwise, quantum mechanics follows no set of rules directly applicable to the macroscopic world except for a few exceptions.

 No.728

>believe in meme magic and human min-
Oh, you have been repeatedly deluded by retarded press.

Observation requires interaction. To see anything, you need to throw a particle (photon, light) and have it reflect back, then measure that particle.
In the act of observing, said particle influences the properties of the observed object, no matter how small. The smaller you get, the bigger the influence is, until you cannot accurately predict the position of a single electron without directly influencing it. Observation implies capturing the change of movement.

The Copenhagen is inherently incorrect because it takes this property and spreads it to basically everything as if artificially stapling our own view of the universe onto all of physics. It postulates that the world of quantum physics is inherently non-deterministic, and bases most of its knowledgebase on pure statistics. It is good in practice for sole observation, but not for formulation of physical law. The position of every particle in the world is definite and real. That we cannot know said position without changing it doesn't mean that the universe can't, either.
