Regarding my returnHello everyone. As you may recall, I am Shivam and have been fairly inactive in the recent times (especially due to the whole university transfer process). I am now successfully placed in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Rogers Web Key still works in the US). Nowadays, I seem to have more time and plan to be more active on this forum.

Re: Regarding my returnHello Bob, Bobbym and Stefy. Been faring fairly well I suppose. The midterm exam is coming soon, so preparing has begun!

Re: Regarding my returnI know you are kidding. Regarding cheating, I was the laziest and worst student that ever stood upright and resembled a human being. And even I never cheated.

Re: Regarding my returnI seem to think that you are somewhat in proximity of 92 years of age. Considering that, with the fact that you have near 50000 posts related to advanced mathematical, scientific and humanitiesrelated concepts, (plus about 5000 other communicative posts) in merely the time span from 20102013, you do not seem to have been at any point of time a lazy and/or bad student. As for resembling a human being, I cannot comment on physical appearance alone.

Re: Regarding my returnThat is a good point. I am not really lazy. I like the forum so I am here. I did not like school so I was somewhere else. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Regarding my returnI do not believe that you can be active on this forum, while gaining the respect of being an intelligent man, without receiving a proper education from school (I would imply that in your youth, the sheer length of technological advancement would be fairly low, hence leaving no chance for being selfeducated through the Internet (Moreover, Tim Berners Lee was probably not alive at that point). Books could have been a source of intelligence, however it would not fully equip you with the maturity received through school.

Re: Regarding my returnThat is interesting but I disagree with much of that. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Regarding my returnThe generation is what I would be most dependent upon. Currently, I would pick selftaught. That is because there are ~15 hours in a day where we are inactive, if we had no educational establishment to visit. 15 hours a day reading educational books, productive online articles et would most definitely make you more intelligent then school. In the past however, schools were more rigorous, there were fewer educational resources etc. However of course, combining both 4 hours of school and ~8 hours of selfteaching would make you an intelligent person of likes not seen by anyone. And as you know, if there were fewer officially educated persons (being educated from schools), we would have become extinct a long, long time ago, at a galaxy close, close at hand.

Re: Regarding my return
First of all this self taught person would need to come from a family that had a father who was brilliant. He would have to sit around the table from when he was around 4  5 years old and have discussions with his father and grandfather. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Regarding my return
First of all, studying 15 hours a day, online or not, would most surely make your head explode.

Re: Regarding my returnI am opposed to that viewpoint. I first heard of it in a book by Robert Ringer. It is a modern ploy to justify any course of action because it does not matter what we do. As if our sun is what we are. Last edited by bobbym (20130212 00:13:25) 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: Regarding my returnWell, I think him and I have different views. He wants to justify any action. I am thinking more that any action is just insignificant, but not justifiable.

Re: Regarding my returnYour actions are not insignificant. If you remember the basis for the butterfly effect you will see that even the tiny fluctuations of a butterflies wings in Beijing can make storms in New York City.
No one is self taught. He had lots of good teachers. Most of them were not in classrooms. Last edited by bobbym (20130211 08:48:39) In mathematics, you don't understand things.
