Hard to beat Herbert for math but I do think that

Vilenkin's, Tucker and Niven's books are easier to learn from. Though, you could easily spend a lifetime on them!

Saturday: He told that he has found errors in his proof ..... However, he will show that 0/0 = 1

By the time he gives it to you he will find holes in that one too.

Lets be more considerate and open minded. It is infinitely possible that he could be of a higher order of intelligence and have the answer which we have been seeking.

If that is so, we won't be able to understand his proof

It is much more likely that his proof is flawed than that he is some alien with a big brain. No offence intended just stating the odds.

Today, I saw his proof. Its too stupid. I was so mesmerised that I could 't point out the fallacy in it. But now I can

Hi Agnishom;

Well at least he did not turn out to be an alien.

I am sure we can find an axiomatic system in which the proof is correct.

I will leave the construction of that system to someone else. If they construct it we can then prove
1 = 2 = 3 = 4 = 5 = 6=...

would make things a lot simpler.

Hi Agnishom

Is that guy we had a group chat with the guy who posed you the false proof?

Very Good!

As you already know, I have behavioral problems and do things which others dislike without me being conscious about it
