Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.Hi Don Blazys;
Please do not make demands like that. That just excites other posters and causes more arguments. Posters can reply with any length they like or think is necessary to explain themselves. 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. #77 20120805 18:44:49
Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.It's not a demand. #78 20120805 18:50:36
Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.
So what then is the point of your polite request? 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. #79 20120805 19:09:21
Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.The question in post #73 involves a paradigm shift. #80 20120805 19:17:47
Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.I do not agree. You are rebuking the poster for post #74. Normally that would be overlooked. In this case I have already taken disciplinary action in this thread twice. So, I am being more concerned about niceness and politeness. 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. #81 20120805 19:44:02
Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.I apologize if post #75 was in any way viewed as "rebuking the poster for post #74". #82 20120805 19:52:09
Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.
No, you must be as polite as I know how. That is my job. I have politely stated how much less can be tolerated here because there is already bad blood.
If that is your wish then I will comply. But it will be your decision. It will obviously be based on your inability to accept any code of conduct other than what you think is adequate. It is possible that you do not see the big picture. 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. #83 20120805 20:04:41
Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.There is already way too much "bad blood" on this God forsaken planet, #84 20120805 20:08:12
Re: Shaking The Foundations Of Mathematics.As you wish. 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.
