Re: Interesting Conversation
Nope, Darn Good Quote. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #52 20131116 22:52:26

How is scale necessary? The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #53 20131116 23:30:47
Re: Interesting ConversationWhen I am sending a letter to my house from a local area, I can use this address: 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?'

Re: Interesting ConversationNice to know that. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Interesting ConversationWould not that make it pointless? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Interesting ConversationFatalism is nonsense to the ole m'er. Determinism? Who knows. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Interesting ConversationWell, the question is basically  Do you believe in free will.

Re: Interesting ConversationDepends on what you are implying is free will. There are tasks that are clearly impossible, free will does not exist there. But for everything else we do.

What are they? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #62 20131116 23:53:18

Re: Interesting ConversationWhat is casuality, again? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Interesting ConversationWho is this M fellow? Do I know him? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Interesting ConversationOkay, have you heard this story?

Re: Interesting ConversationTrue enough. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #71 20131117 00:22:36
Re: Interesting ConversationDid you hear that one before? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #72 20131117 00:25:24
Re: Interesting ConversationNope. Over here they say, I would rather be lucky than good. Some say the better I get the luckier I get. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #73 20131117 12:02:04
Re: Interesting ConversationThe following is another reason why I use the 'Interesting Conversation' phrase: 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #74 20131117 12:09:12
Re: Interesting ConversationI will try that too! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #75 20131117 12:32:59
Re: Interesting ConversationAre you on facebook? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
