Define purpose and maybe it will.

There is not need t define definition yet.

Agnishom is a particular element of the set P called people.

Maybe we should try axiomatizing real life before going any further into discussion. I bet that if we succeeded, Hilbert would have been proud.

### Re: In a building, which floor is the safest?

Well, I was asking if an options trader is an working mathematician like actuarists?

That I do not know. The only really true mathematician is the recreational one.
