What can one do with knowings that occur from strong intuition?

Please see a breakdown of how one may approach the question…

  • ‘Knowings’ in this sense has not been influenced by external stimulus. One can know things about our environment using the six senses as a substrate between the seeming reality out there and the seeming mind in here. However, one can also have a knowing that occurs apparently separate from this process.

  • Intuition in the question here refers to an instinctual awareness that something is so but interestingly the intuition hasn’t arisen through the conventional methods of learning; there has been no previous auto-suggestion.

The knowing itself is the knowing of rebirth. It has been something I’ve steered well clear of but, suddenly, there was the clear knowing that rebirth is so.

Thus the conflict occurs – if I have relied on my six senses all my life to know things, how could I know rebirth to be so?

What on earth is ‘Mind’??? Where is Mind’??? (Rhetorical questions but if you’re feeling cognitively malleable then feel free to answer these also!)

Is Sarah M. Robinson’s mother Anna Strong really Eleanor Denton?

The 1885 Detroit, Michigan, death certificate of Sarah M. Robinson (b. c. 1812, New York) lists her as the daughter of James Strong and Anna Strong, both born in New York. She is buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Detroit, as is James A. Strong, at least according to a Find a Grave entry (no gravestone photo).

According to the 1850 federal census records for Detroit, James was born in New York and lived with Elloner Strong (whom I believe was his wife Eleanor Denton). The household also includes Julia Welder (whom I believe is their daughter, Juliet Wilder). The 1860 census shows him still living with Juliette Weilter [sic]. According to Find a Grave, Sarah is buried near Juliet D. (Strong) Wilder. Juliet’s 1888 Detroit death record shows her as having been born in New York c. 1811 but does not list her parents.

I am trying to figure out if Julia and Sarah are sisters, which may hinge on whether the Anna Strong in Sarah’s death record is really Eleanor Strong.

Would the dynamic pressure of the Sun’s solar wind be strong enough to trap plasma ions within an open…

If you were to place a long cylinder, open at one end and closed at the other end, and position this cylinder so that the open end is facing the Sun, and then you were to inject plasma ions, such as oxygen ions, into the cylinder near the closed end, would the solar wind entering the open end of the cylinder be strong enough to keep the oxygen ions pinned against the closed end of the cylinder, effectively trapping them there? How close to the Sun would this cylinder need to be for the solar wind to be strong enough to ‘entrap’ these oxygen ions?

Issue with feeling strong feelings [on hold]

First of all, I’m a simple layman and therefore I probably won’t be able to understand any professional terms. Second, this question is not about me but about a friend, let’s call him Tim, so I might not be able to provide every last detail.

Tim and I have known each other for about 2 years, but circumstances has brought us very close. Tim told me a while ago that he has some issues when it comes to strong feelings. No matter if it’s happiness, love or anger, when the feeling becomes “too big” it is automatically switched off and he goes to some kind of neutral state. I didn’t get a feeling back then that he felt that it was much of a problem, he just told me like some sort of a statement.

However, a couple of weeks ago, he came to me again and almost broke down telling me that he felt like a psycopath for not being able to feel the feelings he should be able to, or rather follow through with them and reach that peak of emotion. I told him to go and see a psychiatrist as I, or no one else among his friend and family, is able to help him. But he just responded that he doesn’t trust them to do a good job and to actually help him get better. Ever since he told me this he hasn’t been himself, so I think it’s starting to get to him pretty badly.

Personally I think the best for him would be to see a professional, but as I can’t force him to do so, I don’t know what to do. I hate to see him suffer and I want my pal back. Therefore I’m asking you what could cause him to have this issue, in order to be able to help him get back on track.

I know that he has trust issues when it comes to people, but I don’t know why, if something specific has happened to him or if he’s been that way all his life.

Correct approach of politely reply back with strong oppose

I asked for some details to one of my colleague.He replied and mentioned a special note in the reply mail. Something like that :

Please find the detail below
1>aaaaaa
2>bbbbbb

Please Note: we should not do that blah, blah, blah

so I want to reply back him on this mail politely but want to make sure that he should clearly understand that I am not happy for this special note and he should not put any special note (Suggestion) in future.

How can i say that. I am thinking to write something like …

Kindly do not put any special note instead of that…..

Is this ok? If someone can suggest me the tricky way to reply on this mail politely it will be very helpful for me.

function continuous from the strong topology to the weak topology

Let $X$ be reflexive Banach space, $F$ a function of $X$ into $X$ such that $F(u)=u+TN(u)$ where $T$ is linear and $N$ is nonlinear. Is $F(u)$ continuous from strong topology to weak topology? How can prove that?

Strong Inductive proof for inequality using Fibonacci sequence

I am trying to prove that $F_n geq 4 * F_{(n – 3)}$ using the Fibonacci sequence, I think it the proof requires strong induction but I am unsure of how to apply it.

My work so far:

Define the Fibonacci numbers by:

begin{align*}
F_0 &= 0 \
F_1 &= 1 \
F_n &= F_{(n-1)} + F_{(n-2)} forall n geq 2
end{align*}

  1. Prove by induction that $F_n geq 4 * F_{(n – 3)}$

    Base case: $n = 5$

    begin{align*}
    F_5 &geq 4 * F_{(5 – 3)} \
    F_5 &geq 4 * F_{(2)} \
    F_5 &geq 4 * 1 \
    5 &geq 4
    end{align*}

    Suppose true for some $n = k$
    [
    F_k geq 4 * F_{(k – 3)}
    ]
    Inductive step: Consider case $n = k + 1$

    begin{align*}
    F_{(k + 1)} &geq 4 * F_{(k + 1 – 3)} \
    F_{(k + 1)} &geq 4 * F_{(k – 2)}
    end{align*}

The $F_{(k – 2)}$ makes me think the of the Fibonacci definition and that it should be possible if I use $n = 5, 6$ in the base case. However I am not sure what the next step should be so I can go further.

I’m trying to just get the destination items and currency

I’m able to get the destination but nothing else. These are the statements I’ve tried, with domain and type coming from other webhook calls and not related to this one, but still required.

params.permit([:rate]) # did not permit the entire params
params.permit(:domain, :type, :rate => [:destination => {}, :items => {}]) # this works but only for destination and not items
params.permit(:domain, :type, rate: []) # did not permit any params

Thanks
