Your Questions About How To Discover New Things

Sharon asks…

Does anyone ever feel the need to “discover themselves”?

I’ve been going out with my bf for 14 months today actually lol (just realised that). We love each other very much, We’re both 19 and started going out at the end of high school. We actually have similar views with quite a few things, but like any normal couple we don’t have exactly the same views. A few months ago I started feeling strange- it’s almost as if my body is present but my mind isn’t. I don’t know- it’s hard to explain. I’ve kind of felt down and nothing seems to make me as happy as it used to. It’s almost as if the old me is still inside but the new me is trying to take over. I guess what I’m trying to say is lately I’ve felt the urge to do things outside of my comfort zone- I’ve applied for new courses next year and possibly thinking of taking some time off to travel/ volunteer. My boyfriend is doing similar things next year. I think it will be good for us to both discover new things/ new cultures and be with new people. It’s also a good test to our relationship. Anyone else felt the need to discover themselves? Were you in a relationship? How did it affect this? Even if you wern’t in a relationship I’d like to hear your stories.
Cheers
Thanks..nice to see someone positive about our relationship. I guess if it’s really meant to be it will- I’m even thinking about moving to an interstate uni and he really supports it. He knows I’ve been miserable and thinks I need to make a new circle of friends.

Uhhmm.. I’ve never really felt like that. But I think that you must be very mature to feel this way. I think it sounds like an amazing idea. Definitely do what you want to do with your life. Don’t let anyone hold you back. You’re young & you only live once. It sounds like you and your boyfriend have a strong relationship. I would definitely run this by him & see how he feels about it. If he loves you, he’ll let you & support you. Heck, he might even want to go with you. Go for it girl. ; )

Paul asks…

How could I build my own particle accelerator? And detector?

How could I build my own particle accelerator? And detector? What equipment would I need, and would I be able to discover new things, like the LHC does?
I know I’m not going to be able to build a copy of the LHC, I mean just a small accelerator, linear or circular, but powerful enough to slam ions into a surface and produce new particles.

New Niche Finder answers:

It is possible to build your own particle accelerator, but it’s not possible to discover new physics with it. Think about it. If it was that easy, everybody would have built one and everything would be discovered already. No, everything that can be found with a small accelerator has already been found a long, long time ago.

Google “diy particle accelerator” or “diy particle collider” for more information on how to build one. However, without a thorough understanding of modern physics, I don’t think it’s going to be much use to you. It would also be very dangerous to use if you’re as young as I’m guessing you are. They can produce dangerous radiation.

how to get the man off the exit to pokemon league- pokemon diamond?

i have no idea how to get the man off the exit to go the league and pass the game and discover new things.

New Niche Finder answers:

He leaves after you get the national dex. You get the national dex when you see all the pokemons in the game.

Mark asks…

What should i major in if i am interesting in Archeology and Astronomy?

I really would like to be a part of discovering new things. Whether they are new things from the past or new things from the future (space). I am torn between both….

Can these two be intertwined some how? If so, how? What should my major be or any other kind of advice. Thanks.

New Niche Finder answers:

Not a problem… First pick you deepest, truest love…the subject you are most passionate about…do that for the major and the other for the minor. Here’s how it can work:

Archeology major, astronomy minor: so what how were the oldest calendars done….directly or indirectly, you cannot help but stumble across and find a threat leading to astronomy. Look at the various ways we still tell time…solar, sidereal, lunar, etc. Right?

Astronomy major, archeology minor: So how many archaeological ruins can you name that are linked, directly or indirectly as observatories? Numerous archaeological sites seem to align to astronomical phenomenon…no clear explanation…but too precise in so many ways as to be implausibly explained by mere “coincidence”.

Some historical and pre-historic events were “decoded” through what could be called archeo-astronomical evidence. In the Great Plains of the US, native Americans recount a metor shower in their oral histories….so how can a definitive or even relative date be established? Seems a natural to use BOTH the fields you are interested in.

And, as someone else suggested…double major…a bit more work, and perhaps cost…but if you have the energy, time, and money…why not?

But no matter how you cut it, from my point of view, without a specific job in mind, the education of Antrho major, Astron minor, Astron major, Anthro minor, or double major in Anthro/Astron…intellectually you are prepared so similarly that it really is not such a big deal.

What REALLY matters in the end is how you apply your knowledge and skills not matter how they are acquired (in school or out of school) to solve problems and get work done well enough that someone is willing to pay you to do it.
So, bottom line, true love first, and the other is your minor.

Hope this helps. Best wishes for your success and future.

Carol asks…

What is the future of science?

What will we see in 100 years or so how will we change. Will we discover new things? What will most likely be the next big thing stuff like that? Will we get to the point where there is nothing else to do?

New Niche Finder answers:

Our technology has evolved so much that a new discovery and or invention isnt going to be a big surprise. Cause science has come so far that u cannot invent something in your backyard and that will shake (even stir) the scientific community. Now they know what can be achieved and what cannot be achieved given the confines of modern science in the next 100 years.
So if somthing big is going to be invented, you’ll probably know about it atleast 20 years before (that is of-course if you care).
