hi Agnishom,

You are right to give this thread the title 'Consistency Hypothesis'.    Is your theory consistent?  Is your conjecture true ?

Consider this:

Universal set = {every situation that ever exists}

That includes this situation:

There exists "a situation in which there is no appropriate quote for that situation".

For if that situation doesn't exist then there is a situation that isn't in the Universal set  =><=

Therefore your conjecture is false (sorry sad ) and your theory inconsistent.


ps.  What is the IQ test story ?

How are so sure the situation you described exists?

These are exercises. You should hide your answers.

Hi Bob

I don't think f can take values between 0 and 1 either.

It's the number set we are the most familiar with. If we do not define it, we might as well not have mathematics.

I'm assuming you mean d5x?

1.c4 d5
2.d5x Nf6

What's more, the definition of natural numbers hinges on the fact that {} is different from {{}}.

hi Stefy,

Thanks.  But I'm getting strange results from the second solution to the quadratic.  And I've tried two more examples with the same happening again.  I'm just trying to make sense of all my paperwork; then I'll post what I've found.


I didn't have to solve any quadratics...
