In this thread we will share notes, discuss problems, and read textbooks related to probability and statistics. Getting very skilled in a particular area of math can be fun and rewarding, and can have many benefits, especially in such an applicable field as statistics. Feel free to post textbooks that we can start with when we reach thread 2.

IQ is bullshit
images
The fact that you can raise your IQ score by repetitively taking IQ tests just shows that IQ tests are folly. That means for subjects like mathematics, you can increase your understanding just through repetitive practice, math is a skill after all and the best way to become skilled is through practice. The term "stupid" is thrown so often that it makes IQ scores meaningless. Unless the tests are 100% accurate, why should we trust IQ?

College students dumber than ever

The average IQ of a college student has fallen by 17 points over the past 85 years

https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2024.1309142/abstract

>Meta-analysis: On average, undergraduate students' intelligence is merely average

According to a widespread belief, the average IQ of university students is 115 to 130 IQ points, that is, substantially higher than the average IQ of the general population (M = 100, SD =15). We traced the origin of this belief to obsolete intelligence data collected in 1940s and 1950s when university education was the privilege of a few. Examination of more recent IQ data indicate that IQ of university students and university graduates dropped to the average of the general population. The decline in students' IQ is a necessary consequence of increasing educational attainment over the last 80 years. Today, graduating from university is more common than completing high school in the 1940s. Method. We conducted a meta-analysis of the mean IQ scores of college and university students samples tested with Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale between 1939 and 2022. Results. The results show that the average IQ of undergraduate students today is a mere 102 IQ points and declined by approximately 0.2 IQ points per year.

Biologically speaking, is anal sex (both homosexual and heterosexual) safe?
I feel like I hear both sides pretty often, and both are completely confident in their conclusions.
Those who say it doesn't lead to incontinence and only strengthens the muscles. And then those who say it damages the muscles and eventually requires the use of a diaper.
I feel like the truth is somewhere in the middle.

A Hertzsprung–Russell diagram plots the luminosity (or absolute magnitude) of a star against its color index (represented as B−V). The main sequence is visible as a prominent diagonal band from upper left to lower right. This plot shows 22,000 stars from the Hipparcos Catalog together with 1,000 low-luminosity stars (red and white dwarfs) from the Gliese Catalogue of Nearby Stars.

brain
Where do you draw the distinction between a thing's nature, inclination, and its "free will"? Is consciousness and "choices" anything more than just arrangements of chemicals, causality, and antecedence? If we re-created the same exact spatio-temporal arrangement of matter, the positions of atoms, and their velocities. Would it suddenly behave differently? Neurologically speaking. Where does free will end and "my ADHD/Tourette's syndrome/autism made me do it" "my addiction made me do it" "my chemical imbalance made me do it" begin? Point to the exact spot. Give me a number. Normies never seem to give you a straight answer. Either everything is free will or nothing is free will. Either all of our actions are determined by our brain chemistry or none of them are. There is no in between. Mentally ill people with their "chemical imbalances" aren't special.

Is K&R really the best book to learn C?

I'm learning CS from this chart and I'm satisfied until now (I didn't read Deep Work and Gödel, Escher, Bach.)
But now I don’t know if K&R2 is really the best way to learn C. Yes I know that it’s still very relevant, but it is a little outdated no? (1988).
So do I read it or get another book? If so, what recommendations?

Physical Dimensions
S__14262310
I'm thinking about physical dimensions.
Seems to me that you can't move an n'th dimensional object to (n+1) space without destroying it.
For instance, 2D objects can't exist in our 3D space because everything must have at least some depth to it, you can't have an object with 0 depth any more than you can have an object with 0 length or 0 width.
You might be able to transfer an n'th dimensional object to a different n'th dimensional universe via (n+1) space however.
For instance moving a 2D object from a piece of paper onto a different piece of paper.
If that's possible then you could also move an n'th dimensional object to another arbitrary space in the same n'th dimension by folding space and using the same technique (i.e. a wormhole).

So using that logic, if wormholes are possible then travelling to different parallel universes (if any exist) is also possible via the same techniques.

What do you think?

Psychology question
LFL-photo
Now as an adult I generally know better than to listen to it, but I've noticed that when someone says (for example) that they don't like pizza there's a part of me that instinctively feels they are making a simple error of perception, as if they had said coal was white. Is there a name for this cognitive glitch? Does anyone know why it happens? I initially thought it might have something to do with autism, but a brief unscientific study of a few of my friends suggests that which ones can relate to it isn't particularly closely tied to which ones are autistic. Another thought that occurs to me is that it might just be simpler to model deliciousness as if it were a perceptual primitive (qualia) like the color black or C sharp, but that raises the question of why there are people who said they couldn't relate to the feeling at all.

There is a medical conspiracy happening right now that you need to know about
1245222117777444
Behind closed doors doctors have realized that nearly everyone who has had COVID even once has long term lung damage that is only treatable with a combination of steroids and a bronchodilator
Unfortunately due to the terrible PR currently surrounding the vaccine and the handing of COVID in general, the decision was made to not tell the public, and instead to only prescribe these the next time somebody gets COVID and then also goes to see a doctor about it.
I understand that they are trying to prevent panic, but I can't see this going the way they think it will
As soon as people start realizing that everyone they know is getting prescribed these medications, people will start asking questions and the backlash is going to be horrible
This is my attempt to get the information out there to anybody who will listen. If you don't believe me, go see a doctor and tell them you were sick with a cold a week ago and see how quickly you're prescribed these exact drugs.

Can someone explain the wage gap to me.

If for example 10% of the pilots in your country are women and 90% are men. Then let's say that in an airline company there's only one female pilot and the rest of the female employees are low paid stewardesses which causes a big wage gap within that company across average make female wages.

How are they supposed to equalize the ratio of male to female pilots within the company if there are hardly any in the entire country?

Why are we pretending that evolution is a proven fact?
1693878868364533
There is a very common misconception that evolution is a scientific fact.
Lots of people are under the deluded impression that evolution has been proven.
This is because the very word "evolution" has a lot of false weight behind it.
Microevolution, like variations in the dog, bird and human kind etc. is the only evolution which has anything to do with science.
Macro evolution like humans from apes and fish becoming philosophers is science fiction.
So whenever someone says evolution is false, the evolutionist will argue that is true by arguing for micro and then conclude macro is true along with it.
This is called the fallacy of equivocation.
>I look like a monkey therefore I came from one.
This is the atheist argument for evolution in a nutshell. Nobody has ever argued against the similarity between apes and humans but correlation does not equal causation.
It is a meaningless line of argumentation.
Unfortunately, this non sequitur is the most powerful argument for evolution for those who are ignorant of the billions and trillions of issues with the theory based on actual real hard scientific evidence present which will take the same billions and trillions of instances of magic to solve, including the very lack of evidence for the theory like the absence of millions of transitional fossils which should be present according to the theory. But there is not a single undisputed transitional fossil.
And there is also the fact that soft tissues were found in dinosaur bones. Thing is, soft tissues don't survive for 80 million years.
And abiogenesis which is downright impossible as a single protein forming by chance is the same as a tornado building a house, and that it will take longer than the age of the universe according to Levinthal's paradox.
To still believe in evolution with all this facts present is COPE of the highest degree. It's pop culture.
And nothing ass blasts an atheist as much as calling out their beloved retarded bullshit that is evolution for some reason.

Can I even say ' minus two steps' or ' go -3 steps to the right or left'? It just feels confusing, can anyone explain?

I'm working on a project that requires a large language model (LLM) that can provide scientifically accurate answers and source the information from credible sources like research papers or academic journals.

I've been looking into some options like Bard: [invalid URL removed] and Megatron-Turing NLG: https://arxiv.org/abs/2201.08237, but I'm not sure which one would be the best fit for my needs.

Ideally, I'm looking for an LLM that:

Can understand and respond to scientific queries accurately.
Provides references or citations for the information it provides.
Is up-to-date with the latest scientific findings.
Any recommendations from the /sci/ crew? Have you had experience using LLMs for scientific research or tasks?

Thanks in advance!

"By this we demonstrate here that the Quaternary is concealed within the Ternary. O God! pardon me if I have sinned against Thy Majesty in revealing such a great mystery in my writings which all may read, but I believe that only those who are truly worthy will understand." - Dee

"I noticed that Dee's language about Quaternarys (cubes?) fitting into Ternarys (tetrahedron?) reflected these ideas a little bit, as does the union of opposites concept that pervades the Monas / alchemy at large.

Further more, the whole document speaks to that Monad, the Singular Unity, or, geometrically speaking, a point. Fuller credits himself with the discovery of the geometry of a point; "what we think of as a point," he writes in Synergistics, "is always eight tetrahedron converging to nothing at all." We see that reflected again in the cubeoctohedron, with its eight tetrahedrons , which, as we've seen through the vector equilibrium, converge to nothing at all (that "nothingness" is also referred to as the tetravoid, which Fuller conceptualizes as the opposite of a black hole).

>The densest known regular sphere-packing in two, three and four dimensions uses the cell centers of one of these tessellations as sphere centers.

what were Dee and Fuller catching onto? what are the essences of the Quarternary-in-Ternary?

and additionally there's plenty of resonances with Dee's quarternary (the hidden fourth T within the Triple Tau) in Fuller and synergy ("a whole which cannot be explained by any component or sum thereof"), where Fuller's helpful example is to 'helically unfold' a triangle (because 'the triangle is a spiral-- a very flat spiral, but open at the recycling point', will post example)

IQ IMPROVEMENT THREAD
i2
Discuss techniques of improving IQ. Here's what I've found:

>Activities linked to IQ increase
Doing difficult math and logic problems (e.g. Springer Graduate Texts)
Orbitofrontal D1-D2 stimulation (apparently very potent)
Learning a new language (the more it differs from your mother tongue, the better)
Nucleus Basalis stimulation
Learn to play an instrument
Some (!) meditation techniques
Neurofeedback training (specifically Dual-N-Back)
Intermittent fasting
transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)
some memory activities/games
Continued education
lucid dreaming
some binaural beats

Comvince me a high meat diet isn't the best
1708690901879321
>Switch to a 90% meat and fat diet
>Suppliment with some fruit
>Literally every physical or mental problem I have dissappears within a week
>Lose 10 pounds a month every month of fat
So, at this point, it's beyond any reasonable doubt that the best possible diet for anyone is obviously a high meat diet. Now, the question becomes WHY is anyone still holding a different position? It's recently been proven that the carnivore diet can literally cure bipolar.

Weaponized consumer drones defense

/k/ is too retarded to answer this. Why these fuckers seem so indestructible?
Would be too hard to build a small cheap interceptor drone that just seeks the microwave signature of the video feed and stuff? And that explodes near it?
I am speaking of consumer drones used in Ukraine, not the actual hi tech military ones.

Information Dark Age
IMG_1293
I have strange fascination with preserving information for posterity. I often think about finding lost silent films and what may be on the Herculaneum Papyri and such. That got me to thinking, will films, TV, music and such from the 20th and 21st centuries be completely lost in 500 years time? Hard drives and optical discs will rot, film stock will disintegrate, videotape will eventually lose its magnetization. Music will do better than movies because vinyl records literally have the information physically etched onto it, but I’m not sure movies can be infinitely preserved. Preserving and digitizing may be fruitless if the digital formats themselves aren’t infallible.

Do you think science is probably dramatically overestimating the IQ of gorillas? It seems so improbable that they're more intelligent than any race of humans. Gorillas would be escaping from zoos constantly if they were really that smart. I bet their IQs are more like half what the scientists are estimating.

You're not happier if you have low IQ.
dumbishappy
Be thankful you don't have low IQ
I had 80 IQ in HS (due to ASD/ADHD/schizoaffective). Five years later (due to meditating) I have 120 IQ.
Being low IQ is a living nightmare:
>you perpetually end up in miserable situations and you don't know why.
>You're easily demoralized, enraged, tricked, etc and you have no idea of how to deal with it.
>You're always getting swindled by someone/some company.
>You're driven by impulse & habit alone, with fear of consequences being the only limiting factor, and you always feel "in the right" about whatever pleasure you're chasing, & see anyone who hinders you as evil.
>You're basically zoned-out all the time (to some degree), even when trying to focus. It's similar to being sleepy or physically tired all the time.
>You live FOR the moment, but not IN the moment
I understand at higher IQs its hard to escape negative though/feelings (since you notice more), but that is WAY BETTER then being a raft in storm at the whims of forces you cannot control nor even understand.

New studies
ScienceSummary_2023_November_EN
Which field of research do you think is most underrated/neglected?
(In terms of academics engagement, number/quality of studies, potential, funding, or media coverage.)

There's so many papers but most of them are about minor niche things like modelling of cut carrots, random dinosaurs, and so on while subjects with a big need of data/findings right now in the real world often have barely any study or trial. Are there any projects about reorganizing research so it's more useful to society?

Why doesn't /sci/ debate recent actual studies/results with few exceptions? Those studies aren't big enough to have a whole thread about them and the studies that have threads here are either trash or just there due to controversy. What's your take on the featured ones?
