House numbers (my own puzzle)Here’s a puzzle I just created out of the top of my own head. #2 20100515 01:49:51
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)
If two or more thoughts intersect with each other, then there has to be a point. #3 20100515 23:11:20
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)My answer It's the activity of the intelligence above all that gives charm to existence. #4 20100515 23:22:24
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)Unusual puzzle! It's the activity of the intelligence above all that gives charm to existence. #5 20100516 00:50:15

No doubt! She's a notorious Number Player!! If two or more thoughts intersect with each other, then there has to be a point. #6 20100516 02:12:32
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)Interestingly, you can take a shortcut with this puzzle by "metathinking", making the assumption that there is a single correct answer. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #7 20100516 15:39:14
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)
After thinking for a long while, i figured it out that why it works! If two or more thoughts intersect with each other, then there has to be a point. #8 20100516 21:44:30
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)I don't know if that's the correct term, but it's the one I use. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #9 20100517 00:37:17
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)You’ve all got the correct answer, as well as some good ideas, but I hope you didn’t neglect the last bit of problem, namely that the total of all the house numbers was 100. This is significant to the solution. Without it, you’d only be making an unwarranted assumption. #10 20100517 00:47:36
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)
I considered it!! Latter doesn't fit in.. If two or more thoughts intersect with each other, then there has to be a point. #11 20100517 01:08:07#12 20100517 01:42:16

Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)Hi Jane;
If you cannot falsify the above then: 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. #14 20100517 02:35:52

Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)
The puzzle, in any such scenario, will not be solveable!!? If two or more thoughts intersect with each other, then there has to be a point. #16 20100517 03:00:39
Re: House numbers (my own puzzle)I just solved it. Please read before you write. Otherwise we will be confused. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
