I do not have a cat but I will ask him about the cat I do not have.

Hahahhahhahah, that is funny. He should try to look like you and until he does I would suggest you do not pay him any heed.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

M has something called Infinity and also a ComplexInfinity.

Do any of the numbers you think are not kaboobly doo exist in the material world?

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

Apple Apple Apple

Let's say that the number of apples above this line is 3. Since you can correlate something with it, it exists in the material world.

Now, keep counting the apples from left to right and right to left and do not stop. You will reach aleph-null.

Hence, it exists in the material world.

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

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.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

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.

The number 3 does not exist either, then.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

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