Reduction ad AbsurdumHi, I have a little question concerning contradictions : #2 20131014 09:28:03
Re: Reduction ad AbsurdumA contradiction is by definition a statement that is always false. If by manipulating you find that a statement is equivalent to some contradiction, it must be equivalent to false and thus itself is false. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #3 20131014 18:27:32

Say: "What ever correct manipulations you do with it " and I'm happy. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #6 20131015 05:31:10
