Re: So this is what was happeningIt is not what? 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. #52 20120711 22:47:43
Re: So this is what was happeningIt is not kaboobly doo. 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 #53 20120711 23:02:07
Re: So this is what was happeningI see, you object to the use of that word. I will correct that. It is nonsense. 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. #54 20120711 23:07:13

Re: So this is what was happeningBut you did not learn the most important lesson. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happeningYeah.....Is that Yoda? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: So this is what was happeningNo, Yoda is small and green. Bobbym had him as an avatar a while ago. My avatar is a guy called Inuyasha. He is from a manga I am reading.

Re: So this is what was happeningWhat is a Manga again? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: So this is what was happeningIt is a Japanese comic. I read manga on the mangareader website.

Re: So this is what was happeningHave you read the book "The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Midnight"? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: So this is what was happeningHi all;
Always listen to Yoda. 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. #68 20120712 22:24:09

Re: So this is what was happeningBut post #24 is mine.

Re: So this is what was happeningOf course it is yours! How could one of mine have an error? 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. #72 20120713 00:37:26
Re: So this is what was happeningI think you have me confused with somebody. Is it because of the new avatar?

Re: So this is what was happeningConfused? Me? No way! I already said some things about your new avatar. You did not read the posts so they are gone forever. 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. #74 20120713 03:58:08
Re: So this is what was happeningI read all your posts. If you ever posred anything 'bout my new avatar, it was not obvious.

Re: So this is what was happeningSorry, you may believe that but it just ain't so. Also, of course it was not obvious. Brutes are obvious. Intellectuals are just as loutish but not as obvious. 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.
