Re: Aliens?What if he were telepathic? 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. #27 20121017 10:20:14
Re: Aliens?Then it wouldn't have taken him a week to sort everything out. And it would be very very easy, whereas he said he did have difficulties. Also, someone who posseses the power of telepathy would already be trying to get rich.

Re: Aliens?Rich? Are we talking about that emaciated guy? 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: Aliens?I think we are. He would maybe even be labeled as mad if it was to be revealed that he was telepathic.

Re: Aliens?I do not think he is for real. 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. #31 20121017 10:39:12
Re: Aliens?As in you don't believe the man exists?

Re: Aliens?His information is not correct. There is a small chance he is a new source. But it is very, very small. 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. #33 20121017 10:47:03
Re: Aliens?We have already established that...

Re: Aliens?So, why are we talking about him? 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. #35 20121017 10:51:26
Re: Aliens?I don't know. Seems to me Calligar was playing (intentionally and admittedly) a devil's advocate.

Re: Aliens?Maybe but it is still legal in this part of the world. 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. #37 20121017 10:58:40
Re: Aliens?No, no. I have nothing against it. We were tossing a few good arguments there. The you said that he (the alien guy) might be telepathic...

Re: Aliens?Not really, I was saying that someone who immediately picked up our languages might be. 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. #39 20121017 11:03:43
Re: Aliens?That is not what you said.
Either way, it doesn't matter anymore. The guy is a loony, anyways.

Re: Aliens?I thought we were talking about an alien. Most of them are telepathic. 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. #41 20121017 11:07:04
Re: Aliens?No, no. We were talking about the crazy old guy. 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 #42 20121017 11:09:52
Re: Aliens?The only extraordinary ability he has is the ability to spot how to make a dollar. 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. #43 20121017 11:12:22
Re: Aliens?I don't think he even knows what a dollar is.

Re: Aliens?Okay, get some rest and I will be here tomorrow. 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. #45 20121021 15:07:58
Re: Aliens?Hmm...interesting arguments...I don't know, I feel this was never meant to be argued seriously, so I give up. Sorry for taking things too seriously (unfortunately, I'm a very serious person). Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables.

Re: Aliens?Hi; 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. #47 20121021 16:02:21
Re: Aliens?Well to clarify, what I mean by work is that it can prove the possibility (how ever slim) that the guy is not lying. As for these "reticulans" you are referring to, you think that if there is any truth to any of this, that they are the ones involved? (Sorry, I am honestly not to sure what you mean by reticulans, only assuming...) Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables.

Re: Aliens?The small greys. About 3' 8" tall. Big black eyes, small mouth and big head. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Aliens?Okay...so assuming this guy speaks ANY truth at all, you think they might be the ones involved? Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables.

Re: Aliens?Their the ones that openly act with humans the most. 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.
