Re: THE POINCARE CONJECTURE PROOF - By Anthony.R.Brown 12/06/07

if you take timbits (doughnut holes, or whatever else you call them)

Munchkins.

I Fully Understand the Problem!

I strongly doubt that.

Far Better from the Start to Give actual Examples! and Simplified Math to explain the Problem!

People can't understand the actual examples.  People don't understand what a manifold is or what it means to be homeomorphic.


"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

Careful here! {ben} is a singleton in the powerset {P(people)}

Don't be silly, ben's not people! ben just thinks he's people. Ben's really a figment of my imagination. Sorry ben, I was going to tell you earlier but I just didn't have the heart to break it to you before now. ;-)

darn, then I'm nearly (not quite) as wrong as old Poincaré. Ah well (interesting software, by the way - my d-a-m-n was changed to darn. How sweet!)
