“Back in my days we walked to school up hill both ways” -KevinWhy does everyone in the replies keep saying Steven
What is this comment section 💀
That's how I see walking up the stairs when I'm exhausted
@Abbey the Cat owo
@Abbey the Cat YES
E for Effort
"This is not the shape you expect" It is exactly the shape I expect
Downhill in both directions....
Literally about to make that comment
"He slides down the stairs both ways"*Throws him down stairs*
@JoDolphinlover your eyes, you'll be there soon
"the universe doesn't allow for this, but if it did, it would"Profound
Euclid and all the other mathematicians couldn't find a complete explanation of Euclid's fifth postulate and here we are.
@ゴゴJowosukeゴゴ There's no really such a thing as "coherent versions" because that would imply that all versions not included in that group are "non-coherent" versions. But we really know nothing about how other Universes could work if there are any. They could be completely different in every conceivable way, yet there's not really anything i would consider to be incoherent unless the laws of physics stated that things must be incoherent lol.
@ゴゴJowosukeゴゴ If it was that common we'd have some iota of proof instead of arbitrary concepts.
@Pirilon78 Nope! It might actually be more common than not for people to believe universal constants, like pi for example, can only ever be what they are. I take the opposite opinion.
@ゴゴJowosukeゴゴ no. No one thinks hypothetical universes couldn't exist. They think that they don't. And as far as we are concerned they're right
"It's not quite the shape you expect" It is literally the exact shape you expect
The fact that I actually thought he built that out of Legos 😢
LEGO without the s
It's ok little Jacob, don't cry 😓You can play with your legos now ☺
I would hate to live in nil space, just watching that example video made me feel sick.
I feel extremely sick too. We're quite literally not made to exist in such space.
@Nemisis 007 makes sense
@fresh account🏳️🌈 | True, but I was more talking about if I was moved into and forced to live in nil space and not born in it.
try a game called 'Hyperbolica' ;)
would be normal if its the only thing that existed
Wonderful, now my brain has additional input to create the next fever dream.
ALL HAIL THE NIL
"Your insults dont hurt me in euclidean geometry, they are but an illusion!"
@Idran I If you play dnd, I would use it for that because an artificer who does illusions to make them seem like a wizard would be quite cool.
I don't know where, i don't know when, but what i know is that I'm going to use that
formal words and random is lol
Thank you for this video! 👍👍👍It explains 95% of the reasons whyI sometimes fall up stairs insteadof them down. Outstanding!
"how nauseated do you want to get"Nil space: "yes"
Dang, that's a really cool illusion. I expected it to just be the boring classic disconnected staircase that just looks connected. But no, it's actually continous! And the fact that it's actually sort of goes up both ways is a nice bonus.
i am so proud of myself for realizing exactly how the staircase worked before he showed it
Who else got the shape before the revealI think it wasnt well made model..but nice explanation 👍
Yeah, not an effective illusion at all.
I did I was so confused at the start
I don’t get how it’s an illusion i could see it from the start
The fingers also gave away but the model probably could have been painted better
I did, you could clearly see the angles weren't right. I think if the lighting and paint job was cleaner it may have been great
This is the one time it ended up being exactly what I expected. You can easily see its slanted even before the camera moves.
You know, i keep having this dream where im with my siblings in a room of some random apartment or an office building, then when i look out of the window its getting darker outside so one of my siblings will say something like "hey we should head home" and the other will go "yeah it's getting kinda late, come on Chris" then they'll both head out a door. So I'll walk through the same door and there's stairs. I figure they went down the stairs to find the exit so I'll go down the stairs, but there's more stairs, I'll keep running and running down the stairs all the while it's getting darker outside but i still can't find them. One time I jumped out the stairwell window, everything went black then i woke up.
What poor scientist took time out of his day to research nonexistent physics.
Dude who never touched mathematics since high school tries to lecture mathematicians.
@Brib What currenlysad said, math using weird geometry has many uses in real world stuff. Even if it didn't, that's not to say it'll never be useful. Quaternions and Complex Numbers once had no practical use, and now they're used all the time. Discoveries made in theoretical physics/math can be super useful and pave the way to new understandings of the world or new technology. That's why it's a job.As for the video showed in this short detailing the impossible staircase, I'm pretty sure that was a hobby project made by a programmer.
This kind of geometry is actually really useful in some applications like neural network ASICS making / optimization.Even tho our world doesn't seem to involve more than 4 dimensions, some math problems do require you to think in A LOT of dimensions !
@Brib nah they meant apologies
@Tropical Viking well phisics is something that I'm pretty sure is unchangeable, unlike technology. I also don't see the utility of an infinite staircase. But like you said- it was an unheard of technology, and this form of theoretical physics is also unheard of. This does, however, remind me of cryptocurrencies where people just invest in the next big thing because it might end up working like bitcoin. The only difference I see is that my money isn't on stake. Basically, the point I'm trying to make is that I think people don't deserved to get paid for coming up with cool ideas and saying "Wouldn't that be cool?" Even if they end up right.
Okay facility managers, this is going to blow your mind-the Escherian Stairwell. Located in Building 7 on the campus of the Rochester Institute of Technology, the stairwell was designed by Filipino architect Rafael Nelson Aboganda when the university moved from downtown Rochester to its current location in Henrietta.
There’s also a game created with the engine used for the nil geometry demo, it’s called HyperRogue and made by the same person. Using “experiment with geometry” mode you can explore more geometries
Man..this channel is simply awesome...way to go brother ❤️🙏
This is the most anxiety inducing world perspective. I had a pretty similar perspective when I was tripping out of my mind off of dabs and felt like I was subjected to these sudden and violent seconds where the ride came to a complete stop and began again and incredible speeds before suddenly stopping again and I felt a trillion thoughts racing through my head about when it would come again and how terrifying it’s going to be when it happens and it always would. Felt like a ride on the world’s worst VR roller-coaster. TLDR:don’t do drugs
An infinite staircase and other non-euclidean geometry is possible in virtual reality since things can change around you. It's really trippy
“Talks about the stairs”Me where’d that hole come from
Boss I tried building according to the spot elevation plan but boss I’m telling you, these stair landings are not ADA.
Basically nil geometry turns 2D into 3D, making walking in a circle into walking around a sphere. Similar to walking to the complete opposite side of earth.
I’m proud my brain immediately worked out what was happening and I only knew what illusion he was referencing
The Neil geometry thing shows exactly what it looks like when I'm dreaming and walking upstairs actually 😭😭 You sure this doesn't happen?
Bro I swear, that looks like something from my dreams. Felt like I was in the 4th Dimension.
I love non-euclidean geometry stuff. There's a mod for the game minecraft called Immersive Portals. It adds portals that are seamless, making it so that you can have some weird stuff, like a loop where you literally see the back of yourself.
"It's not quite the shape you'd expect"Me: "uhmmmmmm yes it is??"
M.C Escher should've at least been referenced beyond the type of staircases he drew, that mans art is a real trip!
"Keep going round and round circle never ends don't how to get out don't know how to get out don't know how I got in, keep going round and round I don't understand just when I reach the top it starts over again"Huh so I guess technically that could be possible!
Universe: "How trippy do you want this to be?"Science & geometry: "yes.."
Unfortunately the handmade nature of this (as much as I love handmade stuff) makes it more obvious than the animated versions some people have made in the past. I love this illusion though lol.
It orginally looked exactly like how it did when you changed angle to me
Now I need a Nil Space VR game so I can empty my stomach in 5 seconds flat
This reminded me of the 'Paradoxical Architecture' from Inception.
Yeah I think its the exact same illusion
Endless stair already exists: Escalator, just walk the opposite way in a speed that lets you walk on the spot.
@mlg mcdonalds land Function isn't the only factor concerning classification. A plane and a car are clearly not the same thing despite their functions both being transport. I just found it interesting how condescending you were being in the midst of uttering such nonsense. Esp since the rudeness wasn't really warranted. Chill out a little, that's all friend.
@A side of Aioli When it serves the same function
@mlg mcdonalds land wait, you think an incline is synonymous with a staircase?
@mlg mcdonalds land that's a ramp
@mlg mcdonalds land Ever heard of stairs?
For anybody not understanding the second half of the video. He is basically saying the staircase is a never ending corkscrew staircase. However in that sort of dimension as you twirled around the corskrew your surroundings would simultaneously be level with your point of eyesight plane of view.
I love how he made himself as a lego minifigure to describe it.
even after you showed us how it looks when the illusion is broken im still confuwed
What if ktold you it is possible but the angle and lenght of the staircase would spread so far you would be better off making a always uphill road? Eath is a sphere. We can place a element on it that would seem always rising depending on your location.
This is the kind of stairs I endlessly climb in my nightmares... 😭
Could you make a perpetual motion machine in Nil space ?
Imagine now you’ll never skip leg day
That's how I feel with a regular staircase
"it's not quite the shape you'd expect"*Proceed to showing me a shape I'd expect
I feel like that could make for an interesting game. A chase game or something or a different kind of game
Literally how I knew it would be I’ve learned about this.
Imagine fighting someone in nil space 😂
It’s actually the exact shape I expected it to be lol
What if you put 2 staircases together?Wouldnt it be infinite?
Now i can feel my brain in knee 🤣 cause of that neil space animation
« It’s not what you’d expect »It is exactly how I imagined it worked
Oh wow, I sure needed some wierd form of existential dread, thank you.
How stairs tend to be in my dreams -_- and everybody else is fine with it, I'm the only one freaking out
Ive been drawing 3d for some fun then i immediately saw that down part thingy at the end of the stairs for some reason my brain just automaticly detects 3d
Now I understand that particular stage in Diablo 2. Thanks man!
Ok quick question, if we dont live in “nil space” and likely wont be able to, why and how do we know about it. Is it a theory? Is there any way this kinda thing exists? I really just wanna know why this is like, a thing and why it.. matters i guess?
How high could you go walking in circles?
I've tried. Conclusion: getting high is entirely unrelated to walking speed, number of rounds or the movement at all, albeit at certain speeds it gets a bit difficult
That last animated part was trippy as hell.
He can walk down stairs both ways as long at there's a ramp lmao
This is what a stair master must feel like
“What’s even cooler is you can push him down the stairs.”
Imagine ahowing this illusion to someone in the late medieval 17's 💀
In a very good game called "her tears were my light" there is a character called Nill, but if you don't have the patience for constantly getting stuck in time loops I don't recommend the game.
I have had many dreams like that simulation.
My mind was blown watching this 💣💥
That was pretty obvious, expected some other sort of magic here
It was literally the shape I expected
Hey I'm a fan of your video i had question that what happens when we connect a armature out put eachother like a circle
Brain: should I trigger my vertigo?This video: yes.
Ramps actually do exist in our reality. It was just a ramp up to the other steps again.
It reminds me of how the world in Animal Crossing bends as you walk up or down
My brain honestly died when we were shown the video of an infinite staircase
Actually, since we live on a semi-spherical planet, all of our geometry is non-euclidian
Imagine we lived like that, I’d get motion sick from walking 🤢
That’s exactly the shape I expected lol
"How does this infinite staircase work?"Turn the angle
So if you trip and fall, do you keep rolling down ?
When the hill really goes up both ways:
That’s exactly the shape I expected
This would be terrifying in an eternal loop just climbing up
"its actually just an illusion"Zack: *WRITE THAT DOWN, WRITE THAT DOWN!*
I saw through the illusion as soon as the video started. You should've used the worlds darkest black paint to completely hide the illusion.
Obi-Wan:- "It's over, i have the high ground Anakin "Anakin:- Not from my point of view, Obi-Wan.
It was exactly the shape I expected
It's absolutely the shape I expected lmao
It looks like a game I played on my Windows XP😂The bowling ball thingy.
That's exactly the shape I expected
So my grandfather just lived in nil space when he walked to school up hill both ways in the snow...
Except it's exactly what I expected. How else would you build it in Euclidean space?
This is truly a tremendous channel
Imagine having the nausea effect your whole life
I knew the trick, but it still wasnt the shape i expected 💀
That video at the end looks like my dreams
Bro that was exactly my nightmares
"Guys help I fell up the stairs and broke my legs!"
It's actually an infinite stair case, he's just hiding it on a different dimension
