  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.
  15. I have thought about it for a little bit, mathematical notation and symbols, and have come to the conclusion that they seem as if they extend very much into multiple different fields of study. Encompassing even outside of mathematics such as in physics and the other sciences. I remember reading that mathematics is a science in and of itself, however I would need to preform more research on that one. Symbols, in my opinion, are conceptual representations of some physical or virtual object which expresses some given action or process maybe. In terms of mathematics, because it is a pattern defining field of study it would make sense that it would utilize patterns more often then not. So maybe mathematical notation is itself pattern connections to form more pattern connections to develop entirely new "universes" from simple rules and behaviors. However very much unsure as this is just my thoughts without much research.
  16. I will do some research and think it over, thank you for taking the time to assist.
  17. Apologies for the delay, I think that it is a good idea. It would reduce the amount of complexity and work required to make this thing. Thinking about the project now I am probably going to start off by creating a layman's mapping based on what I currently know then expand it with the help of others as I mature my knowledge in mathematics.
  18. Oh, oh god. I am stupid. I thought you meant that there was an image CALLED Ghideon. I was googling there for about 30 minutes. My bad Ghideon.
  19. yeah same, I am actually pretty apprehensive about it to be honest, was thinking this would be like a start of something that would take a long time to develop over my career as a future mathematician. As I learn about the different fields of study in mathematics I would add to it and what not. Like a pet project to share with the community that the community can take part in. This is something that speaks to me on an analogous "spiritual level" so to speak. That supporting subject thing always gets to me. Like when you learn one thing then realize that there is something always underneath it so you have to keep trying to find the bottom of it, but always appear to be exactly where you last left off. Sorry about not responding to this comment sooner. I was not really sure what you mean by tiling, would it be possible to provide some sort of graphic or further explanation? Also was never able to find the Ghideon picture so I guess no plus one I will try again in a second though.
  20. S1: Ye, my professor talked about him during lecture last semester. Also heard that he went insane trying it. Do not know if it is true or not, could not find any reference to hospitalization in the wiki. Only said that the axiomatization of Mathematics was being continuously revised by him to the 7th edition until his death I read. What I am wanting to do is use the existing axioms and theorems out there and show the connections between them through their uses. From that I am wanting to show the arising fields of study which emerge from those said connections. Like an every building tower using existing theorems as the building blocks and proofs as the glue analogously. Ex: algebra is a set of processes which come with certain defined rule or processes. Because of this the field of algebra may not be that large. Just a repeating of those said rules or processes in order to solve given problems. I do not wish to capture a theorems application however. I wish to capture its formation only so that connective holes can be seen by those who do not really have a relatively large understanding of mathematics "like myself" in there own knowledge of mathematics as a whole. p.s. I think I used that example totally wrong. p.s.s this explanation feels under developed so I will be working on it more and more as this thread progresses.
  21. Starting off I was thinking about having this mapping be in a sort of having the propositions and then showing the definitions used to build up to those propositions like so... Where all of the different definitions, axioms, and propositions are all connected in a progressive like fashion. Visualizing the definitions and proofs together. This however will most likely change due to inaccuracies. maybe something more like this
  22. thank you for the resource! tried to find it and could not. (image source: https://ytmnd-fads.fandom.com/wiki/Noooooo!) But I was kind of thinking more of a "theory and definition relationship mapping" kind of thing. Where It shows the interconnected nature of different existing definitions and theory's. That is very impressive though, need to take a closer look at it.
  23. Apologies for not being specific enough. Analogously, you know how there exists a blueprint and design for a car, and all you have to do is follow it in order to build that said car? And in the design process there are prototypes which have been tested and failed to pass the test? That idea, but with all of mathematics that is currently known. Essentially a mapped out manual for all of mathematics. This however is an analogy only to transfer a idea abstractly. I can try and convey the idea for concretely, however it would take a little bit. Ye, I have already taken a look at it and it shows how all of the fields are related together in categorically. I was thinking something more like an overall "process." Like writing an sharing a program, but instead of programs its theorems and proofs.
