Re: We have extra GoldOkay, go ahead '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 GoldR* = 1/year (1 stars formed per year, on the average over the life of the galaxy; this was regarded as conservative) 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. #28 20131020 00:28:02
Re: We have extra GoldTo be honest, I am not much being able to comprehend whats going on in this equation. Do I need to upgrade my brain? 'And fun?

Re: We have extra GoldAn upgrade is what every human needs. As I have been trying to tell there are many intelligences greater than mans. 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. #30 20131020 00:33:46
Re: We have extra GoldMaybe, but how do you differentiate between an extraterrestrial intel and a fraud using normal intel? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: We have extra GoldYou are kidding of course. Everyone should live here for a portion of their life. 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. #32 20131020 01:10:04
Re: We have extra GoldI did not understand post #31 '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 know when someone is taller than you are? Do you know when they are older? In the same way if you ever see an alien, you will know. 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. #34 20131020 01:30:50
Re: We have extra GoldConsider the following scenario: '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 #35 20131020 01:34:07
Re: We have extra GoldYou would have to make a decision by first weighing all the evidence. You do not make a decision based on a preconceived notion. In other words follow this scenario. 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. #36 20131020 01:38:00
Re: We have extra GoldHow should I check if he's correct? Using a lie detector? '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 #37 20131020 01:39:18
Re: We have extra GoldThey are often unreliable. Using reason it will always be difficult to decide about anything but reasonable matters. 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. #38 20131020 02:01:20
Re: We have extra GoldIs it not paradoxical to permanently decide to not follow reason because while we do it we will have to reason out why we should do it '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 #39 20131020 02:09:59
Re: We have extra GoldThere you go with that logic again. I agree, logic produces paradoxes. To me it is not even mathematics. You know I only believe and trust computational methods. 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. #40 20131020 02:50:11
Re: We have extra GoldMaybe he'll be right. Does it mean its rational? '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 #41 20131020 02:57:18
Re: We have extra GoldWhy is it irrational? Have you ever had a hunch? A feeling about something? The feelings of those people are sometimes very, very sharp. If he were right I would think he is not irrational but that we are irrational for not trusting it. 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. #42 20131020 03:10:28
Re: We have extra GoldOn an offtopic note, I really want it to be true. That will help the Indian economy ( and maybe lower the price of Onions). This is not the correct time to show that rationalism truimphs.

Re: We have extra GoldYes and from the point of expectation it might be worth at least looking for it a bit. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: We have extra GoldWho said I lost on purpose? I lost for a different reason. And then, because I need to be optimistic, I figured out a reason to be happy. 'And fun?

Re: We have extra Gold
I agree. I was just talking about how the girls here would react in my opinion of course. 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. #46 20131020 03:39:18
Re: We have extra GoldWhat would be their reaction? '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 #47 20131020 03:43:02
Re: We have extra GoldThey would assume you let her win and she would then assume you were weak. If you convinced her you did not let her win, then she would think you are incapable of protecting her. 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. #48 20131020 03:49:36
Re: We have extra GoldHmm, scary '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 GoldYes but it is only empirical evidence of mine and could be seriously skewed. Also, I would assume that different cultures would have different reactions. 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.
