Cantor did not challenge that statement. Cantor was dead at the time he made it but I heard him say it.

I am looking at them now.

There are M programs that will draw nice Venn diagrams and even help fill them in.

By you or me? I do not think so. He has been challenged by his peers.

People are generally an ungrateful lot. They never appreciate what they have anyway. The more they have the less they appreciate it.  No group has ever been happy but today's people have more so they are less happy.

Sort of. They settled here in 1607 and eventually took over.

Yea but disagreeing with him is like disagreeing with Einstein about relativity, you are also certainly wrong.

Questions of existence are for philosophers. He was just stating the number 3 has meaning to him, 10^10 does not.

My point is, he might be right! Aleph-null has no meaning except the meaning we give it through the axioms. It is unreal and

Nothing unreal exists - Kiri-kin-tha's

Also, like my signature if you have problems with the quote you cannot blame me I did not say it.

Nothing ever really changes except people's attitudes toward things.

You are obviously having problems with Jean's quote. He is a super famous mathematician. The legendary Grothendieck was his student! He was a member of Bourbaki. If he is saying that then maybe we should listen.

It did not disappear, perhaps we can call it the American empire or the UN empire. Same people, same methods, no difference.

#16 Re: Jokes » Math Pick-up Lines » Yesterday 05:02:55

There is. I have no apples.

They were happier because they had less and were closer. It had nothing to do with who was in charge.

#18 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » General : Story Time » Yesterday 04:58:19

I was talking about the other part, people were happier then.

#19 Re: Jokes » Math Pick-up Lines » Yesterday 04:56:58

That is an abstraction. There are no Aleph Null number of apples.

#20 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » General : Story Time » Yesterday 04:53:54

That is generally true of the whole world, not just India.

I am not part of your imagination, you are in mine.

#22 Re: Jokes » Math Pick-up Lines » Yesterday 04:50:22

There is no according to M. M is not a person. It just happens to be a monstrously good tool.

#24 Re: Jokes » Math Pick-up Lines » Yesterday 04:44:14

M cannot see anything.

I can not convince you of many things. You can only convince yourself. I can say that the world was here before you were born.
