Shrinking brains means we are smarter?Some scientists will say anything to back up what they think is correct. Because they assume we must be getting smarter, after all we have the Bill Maher show, smaller brains must mean more processing power. 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. #2 20120309 06:26:14

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?That is their opinion. So when our brain has shrunk to the size of a marble... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?So people without brains are smart beyond smart.So politicians are the smartest people in the world!

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?According to them, yes. 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: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?I do not like it either. Watching those guys play with mathematics gives me indigestion. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?Agreed, he is much further along in his brain reduction techniques than the average person. My hat is off to him, if I wore a hat.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?It is not nice to speak ill of the dead. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?i was asking you what you thought about him and his brain.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?Yes, I know and I answered in an oblique way. 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. #14 20120310 07:12:12
Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?ok.so you won't express your opinion.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?I think I did. But if even you can not find the sarcasm then I am safe. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?Then I guess everything I was going to say is going to be hard to say. 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. #22 20120311 09:11:04
Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?say it anyway.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?Could be my brain shrunk and I forgot. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
