Actually, I think life is much easier than mathematics.

Yep, according to pappym all of life can be summed up in one word.

I do not think that is it. Remember, pappym was thousands of times smarter than I am. I was rarely able to understand him.

pappym had partial access to that big library in the sky. I do not.

Re: In a building, which floor is the safest?

How does Newton relate?

Re: In a building, which floor is the safest?

Newton was described by his comtemporaries as having terrifying powers of concentration. In addition he was capable of some of the techniques known to your people thousands of years ago. With those siddhis he was able to tap into the library and therefore was the smartest man then and now.

Well, the two of you are not real. That would make Newton not real as well?

I doubt that claim. Can you show that using two different methods?

Mathematics is a superset of reality, so, yes, you do.

You are confusing EM and the way I view it with reality.
