Re: Mersenne's Miscelleny

How do you put those quotes in the grey boxes? I can't figure that out. I'm stuck doing this: "And your chums weren't cheating; if you think of a googleplex and your friend names a googleplex plus one, he's thought of a bigger number." "But the person wouldn't write "a googleplex plus one" but rathe...

Re: Mersenne's Miscelleny

I lack the education for it. Besides, I'm too old to get the Field's medal. I just love logic, philosophy, mathematics and such. When I was very young I had a fascination with large numbers and spent a lot of time working out things like "superpowers" (X^^Y).* But infinity has always been a non-star...

Re: Mersenne's Miscelleny

Your idea can become a YouTube sensation! Just get a snake to chase its own tail around some circular object. "And your chums weren't cheating; if you think of a googleplex and your friend names a googleplex plus one, he's thought of a bigger number." But the person wouldn't write "a googleplex plus...

Re: New Medical Astrology

I thought only cats leapt on the lap while we're attempting to to something. What do I know? I meant ‘Pluto’ re Sun/Testis, and ‘Mercury’ re 'Lunar/Hearing’. Pluto in Scorpio is feminine. Not quite appropriate for a male gland. Vision and hearing are the two 'big' senses. It would only seem right th...

Re: New Medical Astrology

From the admin: Apologies re Planet matters. (Am rushing all the time to respond as fast as possible, as computer is ‘acting up’ endlessly, and now a storm coming so big dawg has leapt up on my chair as I attempt to write). I meant ‘Pluto’ re Sun/Testis, and ‘Mercury’ re 'Lunar/Hearing’. The image y...

Re: Mersenne's Miscelleny

"it's a quantity greater than any number in the set of reals R." This makes it subjective. It is not specified which quantity, just a quantity. I could define a number as "a number between one and ten" but this would require input from the definer, thereby making it subjective. When I was younger I ...

Re: Mersenne's Miscelleny

We seem to be having a dozen conversations at once... Yes, isn't it fun? It is. But my time on the computer is limited. They only give me an hour at the library. By the time I think of a good reply I almost don't have enough time left to get my post deleted, er, submitted. Verbal definition proceed...

Re: New Medical Astrology

I went more for the position when coming up with the correspondences for body parts. So even though the lungs come in a pair and deal with air they are in the wrong spot for Gemini. In addition, Gemini already has a system, the nervous one. This is probably because the importance of the nervous syst...

Re: Mersenne's Miscelleny

We seem to be having a dozen conversations at once so I'll try to stick to one topic at a time. Since almost all your arguments depend upon infinity being identifiable in an objective sense I'll stay with that. "All numbers have recursive definition in the sense that they are deined in terms of othe...
