Conservatives vs. LiberalsIn the dead of winter an old man who is freezing because he has no coat, stumbles down fifth avenue. He happens to see a large limousine pull up and a powerful man is helped out of it. He is an industrial mogul and known to be a conservative. 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 20120423 08:09:28
Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsThis one was funny! Where did you get this from? 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 20120423 08:21:00
Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsHmmmm. 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. #4 20120423 08:25:00
Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsWhat?

Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsI made it up of course. 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. #6 20120423 08:30:38
Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsCool! 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 #7 20120423 08:35:42
Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsNot really, it is very, very sad. 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. #8 20120423 08:41:49
Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsIt is cool that you have come up with it. I do not know to what extent this is the picture of the political system because I am not much into politics,but still...

Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsIt is just another way to look at what happens everyday. 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. #10 20120423 08:47:48
Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsOk. What is the difference between liberals and conservatists? Are they both democrats?

Re: Conservatives vs. LiberalsActually they do not adhere to either party. They could be either or neither. 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.
