comment Can Planck's constant be derived from Maxwell's equations?
I was thinking perhaps similar to how hidden variable theories can be in some sense ruled out by Bell's theorems? quantum mechanics does seem to have a lot in common with bayesian statistics: prior knowledge of one variable affects expected probabilities of another

comment Can Planck's constant be derived from Maxwell's equations?
I realize that textbooks dont derive planck's constant from maxwell equations, but can it be proven to be impossible to derive from maxwells equations using only more mathematics?

comment How do electrical devices suck electricity?
I completely agree that you cut away my remarks. Thats what collaboration is about, endless feedback. I did not say moderators get paid. Im saying if you dont get paid, why do you insist on "projection of a professional image" so that SE can spam some ads in the face of innocent people? Id prefer a decentralized p2p protocol that would have users communicate and vote and use a language of concepts arranged in graphs like predicate logic...

comment Has the concept of non-integer $(n+m)$-dimensional spacetime ever been investigated by theoretical physicists?
so 10 dimensions is interesting, and factoring terrabit numbers would also be interesting, but for now its all fantasy

comment Has the concept of non-integer $(n+m)$-dimensional spacetime ever been investigated by theoretical physicists?
"doesn't sound much stranger than the idea of wrapping up six extra dimensions" yes 10 dimensions is crazy, Im not saying it cant be the case, but its like talking about all the interesting things we could do if we could factor terrabit numbers... the geometric algebra for a vector space of 10 dimensions has a whopping 2^10=1024 basis blades. so the space spanned by the multivectors is R^1024, have fun trying to understand it... "just 4" dimensions gives 16 basis blades (1-4-6-4-1), and the diversity of objects spanned by them is already rich enough, lets first learn walking before running!

comment How do electrical devices suck electricity?
who holds the copyright to questions and answers? if I dont get paid for my content users should not be enforced to do sx's homework for them... also sucking and pushing and shoving electric energy must rub off an image of being a respectable resource of technical answers

comment A reading list to build up to the spin statistics theorem
the wikipedia quotation seems to describe a spin-symmetry theorem and not a spin-statistics theorem

I am thinking along the lines of Thermodynamic Formalism: The Mathematical Structure of Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics, do you know similar textbooks?
