What do you mean by "I've only moved one layer"?

comment Could there be a sort of “Molecular Destiny”?
What if we "remove" the human aspect from the equation. Let's say we have several universes and an infinite amount of computing power for all this data. And say you do know the mass, velocity and position of every particle (forget the uncertainty principle). Would/could this be possible?

comment How to calculate the electric field at a point in space
@Debangshu Currently looking for the field at the origin but I would like to know how to do it for any arbitrary point as well.

What's the general rule to something like this though? Like the formula to use in this situation that can be applied to any problem.

comment How does space affect the human body (no space suit, no space craft)
Thanks for the great answer and references. I tagged it intergalactic-space because it was the most accurate tag I could find. And my reputation doesn't allow tag creation.

comment Do we have an idea about the amount of matter in the universe?
Definitely agree with you @Larian. It takes someone smart to admit he doesn't know something. Not knowing is what is driving me to study science and engineering.

Great answer, and (unfortunately) what I was expecting. Cheers!
