Re: Hooked!

Well that I can not convince you. If you will not believe what I say, what is the point of saying?

Okay.
I'm reading Dr. Z's Opinions. He tells most of my thoughts as well.

Yes, he is certainly a strange man. Those opinions are incredibly interesting. I also watch his videos but he never makes one point that I have been waiting for!

Re: Hooked!

There is an important extension of Sister Celine's ideas and Ramanujans too. They keep mentioning it in there books but do not tell of the latest research. I know they have made some discovery along these lines.

Some of Ramanujans ideas consisted of proving something by reducing the number of cases to a small finite number and then trying them all. He did this with a famous problem that he proves by trying just 7 cases. The four color theorem is another example of this!

Him and Herbert speak of a method of proof that would reduce every combinatoric identity to trying a small number of cases numerically! I came across just yesterday when he let some of that leak out. Probably before publication.

Imagine proving things by reducing the problem to plugging in just 5 or 6  numbers!

Yes, that would be wonderful!
Is the idea available in his site?

I'll see you after a little break.

Re: Hooked!

Hi gAr;

No, it is not. He hints at it even in his videos. The discretists ( he is one, so am I ) do not believe in the concept of infinity, or the greek concept of proof.

Re: Hooked!

What a fascinating thread. Where do they come from? Knots, discretists, omerta, viciousness... A literal plethora of disjoint concepts.

Re: Hooked!

Hmmm. You dig out old ones everyday...
But that is not why I did it. I was looking for an answer to your question in another thread. A search led me here. So, I read it and revived it.

Re: Hooked!

Answer to which question?

In this thread also llies the answer to the question of your occupation. Which I now have copied to my phone. You can delete it and it won't be lost.

You asked about the card discussion with ARB, GiB, Anthony R. Brown, MathGenius...

I am leaving the thread open, I did not give my present occupation away.
