A gifted mathematician.Do you know this man? 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. #2 20130707 00:54:37
Re: A gifted mathematician.No. But when I clicked the link, the following appeared: http://www.mathisfunforum.com/postgallery.php?pid=277335&filename=Theodore_Kaczynski.jpg '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 #3 20130707 00:58:56

Re: A gifted mathematician.No, maybe you should tell '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 #5 20130707 01:05:23

Re: A gifted mathematician.He was a killer!!?? '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 #7 20130707 01:22:53
Re: A gifted mathematician.Yes and it is interesting to follow his alignment with certain philosophies. You can pick up their rather drab psychbabble in the discussions section. 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: A gifted mathematician.You have an interesting age... '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 #9 20130707 01:46:37
Re: A gifted mathematician.Why do you think it is interesting? 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. #10 20130707 01:54:55
Re: A gifted mathematician.Because it is close to mine '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 #11 20130707 01:59:42
Re: A gifted mathematician.But it is not correct. I just put that down there because they would not understand my age. 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. #12 20130707 02:12:35
Re: A gifted mathematician.Anyway, what was the philosophies of this man? '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 #13 20130707 02:27:13
Re: A gifted mathematician.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NeoLuddism 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: A gifted mathematician.?By the way, is he a sinner? '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 #15 20130707 02:37:49
Re: A gifted mathematician.What else can we call him? He claims he is not insane and did not use that as a defense at his trial. Is it correct to blow people up because they put a road through his favorite rest area? 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. #16 20130707 03:05:09
Re: A gifted mathematician.But does he know that he is doing wrong? '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 #17 20130707 03:07:45
Re: A gifted mathematician.That is the question. To sin he must know it is wrong at the time and he must do it anyway. He does not know it is wrong, so I guess he is just a big menace to society. 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. #18 20130707 03:16:57
Re: A gifted mathematician.But when he used a bomb, he used technology '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 #19 20130707 03:20:07
Re: A gifted mathematician.His designs were very primitive due to the fact that he was aware of the paradox. But you are correct! He should have blown himself up first. 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.
