In a logical sense, every entity has an identity and a negation of its identity, so it is possible to mathematically and logically disprove most statements practically. That is not taking into consideration Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem or paradoxes. Read More

There are also infectious and projective aspects of human consciousness and the limitations of perception that are yet unknown that may explain manifestations of paranormal activity as well Read More
Cytoscape is an open source software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and biological pathways and integrating these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other state data. Although Cytoscape was originally designed for biological research, now it is a general platform for complex network analysis and visualization. Cytoscape core distribution provides a basic set of features for data integration, analysis, and visualization.
Commonly, people conceptualize subtle energies as ephemeral, ethereal, and intangible quintessential entities. That assumption means that those entities have no solid substance that we can hold. Various ideas about magic propose that quintessential entities facilitate magical operations and applications such as enchantments. Manipulation of quintessential entities is an intuitive, easy, and common method of augmenting an object’s attributes. A common technique is to anchor, imprint, or link a quintessential, ethereal construct to the physical object so that the physical object emanates the enchantment’s properties. That method of enchantment is like painting or gilding an object. It does not change the Read More
Falsification of theories– the artificial synthesis of urea helped to falsify vitalism
The purpose of the “Funky” series of documents is to help develop an accurate physical, conceptual, geometric, and pictorial understanding of important physics topics… The Funky series attempts to clarify those neglected concepts, and others that seem likely to be challenging and unexpected (funky?). The Funky documents are intended for serious students of physics; they are not “popularizations” or oversimplifications.
Vitalism does not exist; theory can be falsified by creation of urea through the artificial synthesis of urea
This title is an adaptation of the OpenStax Chemistry text and covers scope and sequence requirements of the two-semester general chemistry course. Reordered to fit an atoms first approach, this title introduces atomic and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, delaying the introduction of more abstract material so students have time to acclimate to the study of chemistry.
Chemistry is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of the two-semester general chemistry course. The textbook provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of chemistry and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. The book also includes a number of innovative features, including interactive exercises and real-world applications, designed to enhance student learning.
