  1. Yeah but at least in 20 years we'll have an Oscar-winning movie called "Aleppo" and everyone will say "Something like that should never be allowed to happen again."
  2. The same NLP that has been discredited as pseudoscience? To be honest NLP seems to describe more of a religious worldview than anything. https://www.quora.com/Is-NLP-Neuro-linguistic-Programming-a-pseudoscience Also, are you recommending that I take drugs in order to better understand? Are you suggesting that ingesting drugs will solve world peace?? I openly admit that I know very little and am always open to learning new things as logic, reason, and evidence allow. I learn new things every day. It seems you, however, are the one that has already made up your mind. NLP is the light, the way. The only way. There's no changing that. You know everything. You know how to change the world, apparently. We don't get to create our own reality. That's called delusion and psychosis. This is the bigfoot video I watched. You take the concept of bigfoot seriously and interview a curator of the bigfoot museum as if bigfoot were alive and real. Was this whole video satire? It doesn't seem like it but I would challenge others on the forum to watch and decide whether or not you're serious. So the MSM is good when it fits your agenda and confirmation bias but all other times it is using NLP to brainwash the masses. Got it. Here is where an actual quantum physicist schools Deepak. You have to watch the entire video though to provide context but you can still get an idea from watching it from where I've time-stamped. What Jean Houston and Deepak say are "good?" Good how? They say a lot of nice sounding things, sure. But there's not a whole lot of substance. If you think Deepak Chopra makes more sense than Michael Shermer then I'm not sure that we will get any further in our discourse. You can believe whatever you want to believe. But please don't make claims and try to pass them off as truth. There is no evidence to support that NLP can change the world if we just practice it and we can find the truth if we just look for it. If you have all of the answers and it seems to be so easy, then why isn't everyone on board? Why aren't scientists all over the world championing this? Because the MSM is using NLP in a negative way to brainwash the masses? I don't need NLP to protect myself from manipulation. Thankfully I have my critical, skeptical and logical-thinking brain for that. NLP is just obfuscation. I think @kaylee is right, you'd be a hit with the tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists on Coast to Coast. At least they'd be easier to influence. Good day!
  3. Do you actually understand the unconscious mind? Does anyone? Does anyone REALLY understand what's happening in our brains? The hard problem of consciousness. Sure, there are many theories. But you can't go around acting like you know for sure just because you believe one theory to be better than another. Where am I putting down your work? I congratulated you on your accolades and achievements. What you've highlighted are things I said AFTER you already accused me of ad hominem. What you highlighted is not ad hominem anyway because it is non fallacious and it is relevant to the issue. I'm not trying to win an argument. I enjoy the civil discourse. Also I'm always open to learning something new, as long as there is evidence to back it up. Again, open mind, not so open your brains fall out. I'll watch the video and get back to you. According to your YouTube page, Cosmic Flow is "Where Physics & Psychology meet Metaphysics & Spirituality." Those words carry a heavy weight and with them, a responsibility (moral, intellectual, and otherwise). The videos about Bigfoot and Area 51 did not seem tongue-in-cheek or humorous (at least in the ways you may have thought) to me. The video I saw takes the idea of Bigfoot seriously. Also there is not tons of evidence for UFO's as they relate to other worldly beings. Have you read "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark" by Carl Sagan? Your business partner can believe whatever he or she wants, regardless of the lacking evidence. I can also criticize those beliefs for being foolish. I choose not to believe things on insufficient evidence or where evidence is lacking altogether. You claim to know through quantum physics how we can change the world and that the universe reacts to how we interact with it and that it's even "intelligent" then say, "Who knows what's really going on in the universe?" Lot's of things can be proven. The definition of prove is "to establish the truth or genuineness of, as by evidence or argument." However, something that is proven can later be disproven. Science constantly rewrites itself when there is evidence to do so. That's the great thing about science. It is not absolute like religion is. The onerous is not on me to prove. You're the one making the claim(s). The burden of proof is on you. Where is the evidence that supports "positive thoughts result in success?" So you're saying people's success can be attributed to their thinking positively? I would argue that there are many, and even more important, variables that would determine their success. Also I would agree that people thinking more positively might have a better chance at success. But you can't just make a blanket statement as if it were fact. There have been a lot of "successful" people that have negative thoughts, mental disorders, etc. I'm extremely happy with my life. If I weren't I'd change it. But not just by "thinking positive thoughts." That's woo woo. Of course people who work together will probably get more done than people who fight each other. But in the same token people who work together might then start fighting each other. I take things on a case by case basis. There's a lot nuance involved here. You can't just make general claims or beliefs and try to pass them off as fact without evidence. I practice yoga and meditation regularly. I believe it helps me physically, mentally, and emotionally and helps me to lead a better life and be a better person. But I wouldn't go and make a blanket statement like "Practicing yoga will make you a better person" or "Practicing yoga will improve your life" because for some people it wouldn't! Can you prove that the Poseidon, god of the sea and protector of all aquatic features, is not at the bottom of the ocean right now? Right, you can't. Can you prove that negative thoughts don't result in success? When are you ever called upon to prove a negative? It's a fallacy.
  4. Listen, that's great. Congratulations on all of your achievements. Honestly. But none of those qualify you as a quantum physicist. Just because you're smart doesn't mean you understand quantum mechanics or are qualified to use terms and theories based in quantum physics. Especially in the wrong context. You can not prove that anything you say on the topic of quantum physics is applicable on the macro level as it pertains to our everyday lives. You can postulate, sure, but you can't prove it. You claim I'm arguing because of my ego. I'm arguing because I don't feel you can be so sure about what you preach on your YouTube channel and here on this forum. You can't even prove it. It's dishonest at best, and charlatanry at worst. Area 51? UFOs? Bigfoot? Offering prosperity in a minute using meditation with echo and reverb vocal effects? "Money will flow to you.." How deceiving and dishonest! Luckily your Cosmic Flow channel doesn't have many subscribers or views. You also accuse me of ad hominem. Where did I ever attack your character or you as a person? I didn't and I would love for you to point out where I have so I could apologize. I've always stuck to the substance of the argument, which is: "You can not make such extraordinary claims about the nature of our life, planet, universe without extraordinary evidence." Everything I've said is based around that argument. You've provided me with all of your scholarly accolades but they have nothing to do with the argument. “It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.” “The universe seems neither benign nor hostile, merely indifferent.” - Carl Sagan
  5. Not true. I see experiments (the double slit experiment, the quantum eraser experiment) on the super micro level with particles, atoms, photons, etc. No where do I see any experiments or even facts or truth that shows this working on a broader, macro level in our every day lives. You're taking something you know nothing about, but think you know about, and using it to explain events that affect our lives. You can't prove it with the scientific method. THAT is pseudoscience. You're using words and terms and theories used in quantum mechanics and quantum theory and completely misusing them. THAT is woo woo. Please, watch this: Specifically toward the end when an ACTUAL quantum physicist puts Deepak in his place. Are you an active quantum physicist conducting experiments and research in this field? No, you're not. So why are you making claims that are based off of Quantum physics? Your YouTube channel is filled with it. "If you think you understand quantum mechanics then you don't understand quantum mechanics." - Richard Feynman (look him up)
  6. Spreading pseudoscience and woo-woo and trying to pass it off as truth and actual science certainly won't help. Proper education in science, arts, economics, history, logic, critical thinking, skepticism, etc. and in how our universe/world actually works would be a great start. But who has time to actually educate themselves properly? Schools aren't doing it, adults don't have the time with having to work work work all the time just to make ends meet. Thankfully we have books, which are the closest things we have to a time machine; and also the Internet, which puts vast amounts of information at our finger tips. However, human beings are extremely fallible and we try to seek and find patterns when they aren't really there. We also are unable to change our deeply held beliefs, regardless of how much evidence points to the contrary. http://www.nature.com/articles/srep39589

    Built-in Waveform and Vectorscope, according to 4kshooters twitter
  8. If this were the case (laser hitting the sensor), wouldn't it be green all of the time instead of just sporadically?
  9. What was your ISO? I know 120fps on the nx1 needs a lot of light and lower ISO for best results
  10. @fletch murray Is it just one frame of the video that does this? Do you have AWB set or the manual K value? I've noticed the manual K value isn't exactly full manual, it still adjusts the tint automatically and sometimes goes haywire for a frame. At least, this is what I've witnessed first hand with my NX1
  11. Looks great! What did you do as far as in-camera settings and post color out of curiosity.
  12. As far as aesthetics go the video looks great. I agree with @Jonesy Jones that the video could have used some more color/saturation. As far as substance and execution I also agree with him that it is desperately trying too hard. Presidential parody is an over-done subject so to pull it off requires a perfect combination of humor and intellect. This video failed at that. The acting was a little bland and the dialogue cut-offs didn't help, either. A for effort, though. Who wrote the script? If the video was meant to appeal to low hanging fruit then I'm sure you'll accomplish that.
  13. Why can't it be both? They're processors get too hot and they also want people to buy separate cameras for photo and video? As a business why would they offer high quality specs on a lower-level camera? What would give people incentive to buy the more expensive c-line cams? @Lintelfilm didn't say anything about canon screwing everyone. He made a perfectly valid point that obviously canon don't want to alienate their customers who have already bought in to the c-line cameras by releasing a non-c camera with competing specs.
  14. Look up the D-Fuse softbox solution. I believe they make an aputure-specific softbox edit: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1258826-REG/d_fuse_df_amaran_d_fuse_collapsable_softbox_for.html
  15. This was from a recent trip to Scotland and Iceland. NX1 with vasile's hack. 160mbps for 4k 25p and 1080p 25p/50p/100p. 4k downscaled to 1080p during Rocky Mountains conversion to ProRes HQ. Rokinon 12mm f2, Canon FD 24mm f2, Canon FD 50mm f1.4 Gamma C with sharpness -10, all other settings default. 16-235 color space. Actually, Master Pedestal may have been +15, can't remember OSIRIS M31 Rec709 LUT at 50%-75% depending on the clip. No Sharpness added in post. Rendered as a 2048 X 1080 ProRes LT file. Screengrab from 2048 x 1080p timeline, upscaled to 4096 X 2160 in Mac Preview app just to see how it held up to the upscale. Looks pretty good on my 1080p monitor. Anyone have a 4k monitor?
  16. There's an entire thread on the EOS M5 here:
  17. Format the card in computer? I think that's the only way Photos won't recognize it as a new/different card every time.
  18. There should be a little box that says something like "automatically open Photos for this device" near the top left of the main window that opens. Just un-check it.

    So in case anyone missed it. Deciphering Neumann's code, I got: FULLHDMI, ONESTOPIMPROVEMENT (dr or noise handling?) IBISYESAFTBD (IBIS yes, AF to be determined?)
  20. The problem with this is that people have different definitions of "love." Some people show their "love" for their significant others by abusing them, physically or mentally. Some people show their "love" for God by blowing themselves, and others, up in order to live for eternity in paradise. It's like when John Lennon sang, "All you need is love." What a ridiculous and substance-less statement. It's woo woo. What we need is proper education in how the world really works, how the universe works, how the laws of nature work, how our minds really work, how to think critically, and how to apply logic and reason. Also, where are all of these "enlightened leaders" you speak of? We don't need leaders, we need to become the leaders. We can only achieve this by educating ourselves. With technology and the internet it's easier than ever to do so.
  21. Huh? Actually, it's not like "Hillaried" at all. The verb "Hillaried" is derived from Hilary Clinton, a proper noun. The verb "trump" has been used long before Donald Trump was even born.
  22. I think you're confused. The hashtag isn't #wehatetrump it's #wetrumphate. Meaning, we are better than hate. Using the word "trump" as a verb as it's actually defined is using a play on words with Donald Trump. I think..
  23. First comment from that article: "Your Samsung prototype picture is a Nikon mirrorless rendering from an old Nikon Rumors article You are being ruthlessly ridiculed on most other websites for this type of reporting... !!! Is this really the kind of reputation you want ??? In fact you are still being ridiculed for your Samsung / Nikon conspiracy theory."
  24. If you follow the link in the rumor to the website you will find the original post. After google translate you get this: "Just go back to sleep a sleep , dream saw EOS M5 empty body price is $ 899 magnesium , magnesium sale price is $ 799 . $ 199 with 15-45 lens plus magnesium , so pricing is $ 1098 magnesium , magnesium sale price is $ 998 . If the match is 18-150 lens, pricing and pre-sale price is $ 1198 magnesium. Dreamed this price , I cried in a dream after a while decided to buy the A6300 ." This rumor comes from nothing more than a dream, literally.
