Some more fo MARSHALL enlighteninng ideas about Mathematics//
This one is a nice dream of his redefining his own mathematics concepts

//Is 3 a real thing? I used to wonder about that. And in fact I
have put the question directly to a few of the best minds in
computer science. They mostly shrug. I now see why: it's
not that interesting a question.// --> Think they shrug because you
looked so silly,they did not want to make you look ridiculous...
//Me//--> puzzled I answer
I do not quite understand what you are getting at...3 is the
mathematical symbol representing a number value extracted from an
ensemble of both reals and integer subset.
//MARSHALL// -->^persists and signs claiming basically that 3 <> 3
In strict English grammar, we would say "3" is the mathematical symbol representing a number value. But 3 is not the same thing as "3". 3 is the actual number; the successor to 2, *not* the glyph. "3" is a real thing, because symbols *do* appear in the natural world. You see them on pages of math books all the time. But is 3 a real thing, the way horses are real and unicorns are not real?
I rather think 3 has more in common with unicorns than with horses. (This is of course a metaphoric statement rather than a literal one.) But I find 3 to be ... useful nonetheless.
--> He uses UNICORNS AND HORSES to explain his defficient dream of
math...
I let people judge for themselves HOw can somebody who state such idiotic statement be thrusted as somebody who understand RM which is mathematics applied.. Received on Sat Jun 17 2006 - 15:16:47 CDT
