Re: Four SquareInside himself mostly. He lived in a strange 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. #127 20130527 00:58:48
Re: Four SquareWill I ever get into that world? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #128 20130527 01:02:18
Re: Four SquareWhy do you want to go there? He isolated himself and suffered greatly. Also, the effect it had on his ego and outlook was large. 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: Four SquareI always thought isolation was fun 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #130 20130527 01:45:58
Re: Four SquareWhen he was winning such a person could soak up all the glory. He does not have to thank anyone. He did it all by himself. When he fails he can not blame anyone but himself. 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: Four SquareIn short, he is the building block of his own universe 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Four SquareIt will be lonely out there for you. The higher the fewer. There is just no way around that. 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.
