@tsarstepan,
I have spent the past ten minutes trying to do bad things to your symbols, but then I realised that the word was defined.

Sorry.

@Lordyaswas,
According to experimental physics, there could be a universe amongst our multiverse where define is in fact a synonym for defile. You get an A+ for effort.

So, can I remain unclothed for now then?

@tsarstepan,
But first you need to define "define"...which would make the other definition easier to make.

You're in good company. The box stumped Erwin Schrödinger as well.

@Frank Apisa,
It's nothing. That's the end of the thread since its premise is that nothing must be defined.

I don't think that's it.

Surely you must have intended "theoretical" (not experimental) physics.

Do you get the point of what Tsar was trying to say here, Layman?

@layman,
Yes, Layman, I do.

The thread is a joke...a play on font colors.

If you do not realize that...you will never get it...and you will take it for something other than a joke...and make a comment like "Surely you must have intended "theoretical" (not experimental) physics."

It is a joke about font colors.

I understood the joke fine (but I didn't see anything about font colors). The joke was about one poster supposedly misreading the word "define" to say "defile."

My question has nothing to do with whether there was a joke going on.

The question was about which "type" of physicist, theoretical or experimental, would be talking about a "mult-verse." Would that be something you thought the "experimenter" observed, Frank? Would HE be the type of physicist to bring that (multi-verse) possibility up?

Put another way, which likely would be the case, you figure?:

1. An experimental physicist DETECTED the existence of a multiverse, or
2. A theoretical physicist HYPOTHESIZED the existence of a multiverse?

You still don't get the joke...or the riddle...or the conundrum. It is all about font colors...specifically font color #FFFFFF.

It is up to Tsar to spill the beans. It is a fun conundrum; others may still be working on it, so I won't do more than give you the clues I've given so far. If you think about it a bit more...and use the clues I've given you...it will be a fun discovery.

I understand that part. And you are correct. But the other part is much more fun...and the part you are focusing on it like focusing on a typo in a riddle.
