Re: You are not so smartThe user can go offline anytime. Sometimes that seems to happen when your connection is broken. 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 20130622 02:47:49
Re: You are not so smartThe chapter on supernormal releasers goes on to describe an obscene idea but I believe it applies for other areas too '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 #53 20130622 03:46:48
Re: You are not so smartHmmm, if it is obscene leave it out. 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: You are not so smartIt is an exaggarated version of stimulus. For example junk food and its advertisement are supernormal stimuli to the desire for exaggerated stimulus to cravings for salt, sugar, and fats '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 #55 20130622 16:19:16
Re: You are not so smartSo we have exaggerated cravings for salt, sugar and fat, that just makes us grizzly bears. 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. #56 20130622 16:41:43
Re: You are not so smartwhich I guess, we are '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 #57 20130622 16:49:15
Re: You are not so smartI think the bears are smarter. 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.
