We have extra GoldIn our country, a Sanyasi has claimed that there are 1000 tonnes of Gold buried at a place described by him which he realised after an ancient King told him that in his dreams.

Kaboobly doo! The same yellow journalism that grew here has spread like a cancer throughout the world. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: We have extra GoldYou do not believe in ancient wisdom? That there may be other ways besides the narrow viewpoint called reason? In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: We have extra GoldReason is not narrow! 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: We have extra GoldReason is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.
Is that impossible? Is it even difficult? 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. #9 20131019 21:41:48
Re: We have extra GoldOkay, what is wisdom? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: We have extra GoldDo you think, if I tell them about the gold in my back garden, they'll come over and dig it for me? You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #11 20131019 21:48:17
Re: We have extra Gold
You only need to be a Sanyasi 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: We have extra GoldReally? If you were to find out that there are billions of creatures that have a degree of intelligence that makes man appear no smarter than a chimp is to us, how would react?

Why did you bury it there in the first place? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: We have extra Gold
What? The gold? If I had gold I wouldn't be trying to grow my own vegetables. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #19 20131019 22:17:06
Re: We have extra Gold
Because that which you call a weird assumption is a point of view I call thinking outside the box. It is a very important method of reasoning I use everyday in experimental mathematics. It is one I hope to pass on to you. 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: We have extra Gold
Do you know that American police use such people on their most difficult cases? They have a record that is good. Do you know that the military funds these paranormal experiments to the tune of many millions of dollars? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: We have extra GoldWhat is the Drake Equation and Carl Sagan? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: We have extra GoldThe Drake equation is an equation put together by a scientist to try and estimate the number of inhabitable planets in the universe.
But that is not the point. Today's Paranormal will be the commonsense of the future. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: We have extra GoldOkay, explain the Drake Equation in detail with simpliity 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: We have extra GoldIt is nothing but a simplistic probability formula: 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.
