Questions of the day: correlated particles

1. If one correlated particle goes into a black hole or otherwise changes state in a way that only happens with those specific surroundings, and the other one therefore has the same state, would this also change the surroundings of the second particle in order to make sense of that state? So like would it actually make a black hole?

2. I one correlated particle was in another universe very similar to ours, and in one universe they charge the particle, would the other universe’s scientists be able to detect this and would it be a way for us to communicate with them?*

*assuming the many worlds theory is right

If you can answer these questions for me, please leave a comment with your thoughts 🙂

Question of the day: brains

My brain is really squishy but it’s how I do my thinking.
So, how does my squishy brain actually do the thinking?  I get how a computer can process things but how does my brain do it?  And especially how does my brain enable me to contemplate the fact that I can even contemplate this?

Supplementary question: does my brain work in binary?

Another supplementary question: why is this question so mind-weirding that I almost don’t want to know the answer to it?

Inception

OK, so this is what I’ve been thinking about all morning.

Hypothetically, let’s say that there is absolute good, and absolute evil.

If everyone in the world except one person does  evil, and just one person does good, the good is still there. But if that one good person dies, and everyone who is left is still evil, would the evil become redefined as good?  Or would there still be the idea of good, even with nobody actually doing it?

So, this is my question today. Please leave me a comment to say your opinion.

Thank you!

WHY????

Why do we go to school?

So we can learn things.

Why do we need to learn things?

So we can go to work and keep the economy going.

Why do we need to do that?

So we can get money to live.

Why do we need to live?

So we can make progress and evolve into something better.

Why do we need to evolve into something better?

Because God wanted us to keep the world going.

Why did the world need us in the first place?

It didn’t.

So why did we exist?

We evolved.

But why did we evolve? What was the point of humans evolving?

There is no point.

So what do we do now?……………
