  1. @studiot naw its cool in terms of you being in a rush and having to scan it through quickly, I'm going to need a minute to read through it and comprehend it. and yes some thing like that but also being able to expand the concept of set theory to all counting problems.
  2. ok, that makes more sense
  3. thanks man, I have been working on it and I think I am starting to understand the product rule more clearly. Here is the statement I am currently working with... " Suppose that a procedure can be broken down into a sequence of two tasks. If there are n1 ways to do the first task and for each of these ways of doing the first task, there are n2 ways to do the second task, then there are n1*n2 ways to do the procedure." Below is a picture of how I am currently interpreting it. I think you need to split up the procedure into multiple sub procedures or "tasks" and there are n number of ways to do the first task and for each of those n1 number of ways to do the first task there are n2 number of ways to do the second task. I am starting to get it however I having problems digesting it conceptually.
  4. interesting, so for clarity and learning sake say if I have a 0 and I multiplied it by a 1 would the 0 be considered symmetrical? Because I started with a 0 and ended up with a 0?
  5. Ok, so I'm taking discrete mathematics this semester and I cannot....can not, for the life of me understand the basics of counting. I was in class an the professor was talking and everyone was agreeing and I was sitting there wondering about how many fries can go with a shake, because I saw my future and it involved flunking out of college *little bit of humor there* . Any help, any would be appreciated in understanding the concepts of counting. The first thing that I need help on is understanding the core principles behind the product rule and how it relates to set theory so that I can at least have some reference.
  6. ok, so I am taking discrete mathematics this semester and I have no idea what is going on. So imma get to understanding that first before even attempting this project that I have been procrastinating on.
  7. Ok, first I do not nor will I ever condone the use of insults nor the condemning of someone solely off of the basis of an idea, nor the usage of slander, whether it be direct or indirect, toward another person. That is in no way to progress a discussion. Second one must follow the rule defined by this community in order to fully experience it. That is agreed on when you enter into it, so if they say you cannot post a million word essay then that's it period. Going back to your discussion on Resource Based Economies I honestly enjoy the concept, in fact back in college I came across it and found that it was interesting to say the least. It even influenced my own dreams and aspiration due to it ability to solve a few problems. That being said I also believe that it has its draw backs. One being that how would one rate or determine if certain resources are required vs. others? At what point do you define a resource as being a "resource." I define it as being a "useful thing to build other things." And if that is the case then at what point does a resource become "valuable." If it is valued at a certain point then that is a demand for it, in order to satisfy that demand there must be a supply. This is the basis of economics. In order to satisfy that demand you must have some workforce. This is where automation could come in sure, in fact a large amount of companies are actually switching towards automated methods in order to prevent the usage of persons who do work at a much slower rate. So in a sense I believe that capitalism is kind of headed into that direction already. However let me pose a hypothetical. Lets say that you have a piece of metal which is considered a resource for a specific process to make something else. Lets say you have only one of that said resource and you need 20, how would you satisfy everyone's demand for it? I have my own answer in mind, however I would like to see how you would answer it @IDoNotCare
  8. I believe that I have seen the venus project before, from my understanding it is based around the concept of a "resource based economy" where the economic trade and value distribution is primarily based around the number of resources currently available at any given time. Ex: The development of a car would be valued at the amount of steel or metal which would be used to form that car instead of value based economics which is dependent on supply and demand. I would need to look back on it again to make sure thought. p.s. need to go back and read through the posts to gain a better understanding of the discussion, give me a minute.
  9. Ok, I think I have gained a full grasp on your tile method, you are not saying that mathematical objects are not the foundations of mathematics, whereas it is only a block used where logic acts as the connectors metaphorically speaking. And you pose a good question, where does symmetry play in terms of mathematics? And what is symmetry from a mathematicians perspective? Now all that's left to do is to show that all fields of mathematics naturally arise from this understanding. Somehow making a conical mapping visualizing the interlacing's.
  10. wow, this is awesome! from my understanding it looks like a solid grounding for a project like this. I will need to read over your post in more detail to gain deeper understanding thought. Some stuff to unpack
  11. Oh how I wish to defeat this demon of laziness. The bias of the mind which prevents me from seeing the beauty of the world. That inner that says, "you do not need to learn, for it is the games of those more keen to it than you. Sleep for all of eternity. rest now child for it is meant only for those chosen to defy god. To pluck from his apple of reason. You wish not to defy the infinitely all knowable do you." Oh but I do, I wish to grasp the apple and bite at its core. To give up my mere existence to view the world as not just sheets of paper but as intricate systems, oozing with the beyond infinitely unknowable. I will not listen to you demon or angel or whatever creature you may claim to be from some delusion of myself and of man. For I know that in any sense I will die. And even if I die, I would prefer to look onto the world laying on my back resting upon the shoulders of giants than sit atop a tower of my own mere delusion.

  12. ok cool! have taken a taken a look at learned some cool stuff, like did not know about the Pythagorean theorem being so widely used and it being one of the only ones to be so widely used. It gives me the impression that math is more of an artform with accidental applicable properties.
  13. Mathematics is the sheet upon which any universe may be displayed.

  14. looking back at the image ghideon linked I am thinking that this should be a tiled mapping which does not incorporate the progression of time. Also I am thinking that categories are still present, however not in as a distinct form. I feel as if listing different areas of mathematics takes away from the blended nature of it, showing the intrinsic beauty which can be found from the flowing of concepts together. The tiling suggestion is still a good method of interrelating mathematical concepts together, however I would also like to see where one thing connects to another instead of leaving just a void for the viewers mind to wonder what could be in that space. I am also thinking about looking back at previous research papers in the fields of mathematics as far back as I can find in order to see if I can find the different connections that I mentioned seeing that these are the origins of the concepts.
