I'm a graphics programmer, an amateur physicist, and a sci-fi nerd. I teach computers how to make pretty pictures. I'm excited by beautiful, immersive, story-driven games and interactive fiction. I enjoy messing around with esoteric ideas. I like explaining things.

I currently work for NVIDIA DevTech. Previously, I worked for Sucker Punch Productions on the Infamous series of games for PS3 and PS4.

clarify that I don't necessarily accept that RQM is just an interpretation

comment Is relational QM experimentally distinguishable from standard QM?
Well, then is RQM truly an "interpretation" in this sense or is it actually a different theory?

comment Microscopic source of pressure in an incompressible fluid
Thanks, but I don't think this answers my question, i.e. how does a nearly-incompressible fluid work microscopically?

comment Is there an upper limit to temperature in thermodynamics or statistical mechanics
Sorry to be a bother, but it's still not quite right - should be $+0, \infty, -0$ not $+\infty, 0, -\infty$. :)

comment Is there an upper limit to temperature in thermodynamics or statistical mechanics
"After working things out, you get that $T=−\infty,0,+\infty$, respectively for those three cases" That sounds backward - don't you get negative temperature when $E > N\epsilon/2$, since then the number of states gets smaller with increasing energy? I.e. the temperature progression goes $+0, \infty, -0$, and wraps around from $+\infty$ to $-\infty$ at $E = N\epsilon/2$.
