    Am I the only one who couldn't get engaged with the video because I couldn't stop thinking about how the very existence of a day/night cycle disproves the concept of a flat planet? So much math, and yet his entire model disregarded the day/night cycle. The planet would have to flip as it travels around the star, which would make gravity intense on half the planet and likely negative on the other half. The math is solid, and the outcome is the same - flat planet is impossible - but my god I feel bad for Austin going through all that trouble while his model had a fundamental flaw.

    well, in theory if we consider the game to have a very similar law of gravity there is a better model to explain what is happening. the model is the "infinite" flat plane. this model is very similar to the electrostatic model of the charged plane, since coulomb force and newton force are quite similar. for the ones that don' t want "heavy physics treatment" that is why this is a better model. -the world is much much more wider than thicker, then just the shape fit the criteria of "thin plane" -the force of gravity don' t change varying the height going up the surface. the force decrease proportionally to the distance^2 if we consider the sphere model, it' s constant if you consider the infinite plane (i know, it' s counter-intuitive, check the planar capacitor approximation). -inside the surface both models are wrong because you should not be falling of "falling up" if you go down the bedrock., so it' s a tie. of course the sun is a bigger problem here. but probably the only logical proof of the topology of the surface is measuring the angles inside a triangle, that i bet are 180° no matter how you choose the points, and this is the most accurate thing showing that the surface is flat. (it' s a game, don' t pretend it to be consistent, hope you enjoyed my comment or even learnt something) :)

    Clearly the nether is the core of minecraft. 1 step is 8 steps in the nether. Say if you where on the core of the planet. One step would move you further compare to the surface. To make this easyer to understand. You go straight down to the core in Australia . Your take 10 steps in the core then you apear back on the surface. You are some where else now. In asia some where that explains all. Edit: sorry about miss spelling in this its 2 in the morning.

    Actually... You know what? There IS one theory you haven't considered... A combination of two separate ideas that equate to a similar state of what you talk of. Although you DO have to make two assumptions. Assume A) that for all intents and purposes, minecraft world IS flat. and B) The physics of the universe where minecraft is located MAY not necessarily be identical to our own. With those two things assumed, they do lead to an interesting hypothetical... What if you constructed an entire dyson sphere around a star? Then minecraft would could be the inside of that dyson sphere (Yes, the heat differential would likely end up destroying virtually anything, and orbits for spheres are impossible due to orbital mechanics ripping any known material to shreds). But that still wouldn't quite equate to what we experience in minecraft, due to the fact that you'd still eventually end up where you started from, right? Same as if the planet was a sphere but massively big.... Unless of course the entire universe of minecraft is built under negative spatial curvature. So much negative curvature that it actively cancels out the curvature of the dyson sphere, leaving it a flat plane that extends in all directions but DOES eventually loop, maybe? Again, Ocam's Razor comes into effect, and this would be even weirder than before, ALSO gravity itself would be a difficult thing to calculate, and I'm not entirely sure it could even be done. BUT it's the only way a flat world could theoretically exist, even though it doesn't meet the requirements of having gravity, or a day-night cycle. or pretty much anything.

    Can we stop comparing minecraft to normal phsyics. It obviously isnt bound to our laws. how do things float? why are the sun and moon square? it is clearly obvious that minecraft exists in a reality much different to ours. so just accept that it is flat (or atleast a cube, just like the sun and moon presumably are) and move on. If you're so worked up about how the phsyics doesnt work with a flat earth, then why do you use a square sun in your diagrams??? and then you treat it like a normal star?? idk bout you but i havent seen any square stars in our universe.

    Also the fact that the light source is not above you at all times says that you're not facing the center and you don't fly off at night plus the planet has its own gravity to have a moon orbiting around it which it clearly has, also also the fact that the planet is big would agree that it has a short day of 20 minutes which would not compute if it was flat.

  60. Spontanicus

    Spontanicus10 שעות לפני

    There is also the issue that the world would always be facing the star, which means no day/night cycles. Therefore I propose the following solution: First the Light problem: Make the whole rotating structure (including the object the world is attached to) orbit a central star. Second the rotation mechanism itself Don't use titanium alloy, use bedrock. Probably multiple pillars spread around the edge of the world. Now the only thing I'm not sure about is what the world should be attached to. Maybe some kinda dark matter star so it doesn't block the sun or cause severe gravitational lensing.

    What I don't get in those episodes is that, how would you know that the laws of our universe applies to the minecraft universe, cause sure there are things that aren't.. So he kinda gets to choose what applies to the minecraft universe or not.. The constant of gravitation might be different in the minecraft world for all we know... So I would think that if he wants to use all the real life laws to the minecraft world and it's appearant specifities, he should specify it, cause he didn't get to prove every real life fact from the minecraft universe perspective... Which is obviously impossible since it's a video game but still, he should specify that.
