Would it be a good idea to record your university lectures in Youtube so your talks can spread wider?

“accounting” grammar, underlying all ever written on the subject that is held

in common agreement.

That language is—by choice of taste and agreement—acyclic: It begins with

axioms (of Set Theory) and grows with operations of logic.

Acyclic graphs are not the only one we know. Systems of truth can be

circular—as if suspended in air without axioms— and their sophistication can

be accomplished by refinement as opposed to growth.

That very argument would seem to give hope in resolving two painful paradoxes

in math: the correlation-cause-effect confusion and the question of existence

of one-way functions. And the resolution would simply be to rethink the

language of mathematical expression so that those two characters are one and

the same, thereby going from two conundrums to none.

I find it odd that experimental sciences (when they are correct) report: “The observations

report a correlation of … and we are going to use some side theory to disambiguate

between cause-and-effect.” What side theory?

The very side theory they are appealing to is Math and Math resolves their

meaningless and inane (due to cognitive bias and short historic memory)

question (of “Is correlation cause or effect?”) into another

meaningless one, which is the collection of paradoxes intrinsic in Math—the

provider of the answer.

But if Math wasn’t serving to the asking experimentalist and rather aiming

to build a lanuage that explains everything as seen and observed and testified to

by its users (people), in a consistent and non-arguable manner, it would have

to offer a new tool to record and reason about correlation without breaking it

into cause and effect. No?

Thanks for sending your reply and the article. It is a fascinating proposal. Not that I understand any of those formulas. :)

It must be extremely frustrating for the two professors to see that their mathematically perfect solution to the middle east problem is not being implemented due to human arrogance and ignorance.

However, since Terrance Tao has a unique gift of seeing things much more clearer and has the ability to find solutions to much more complected equations with infinite unknown elements and factors then perhaps, he is the only one that can solve this conflict. (With the cooperation of the political decision makers of the world, of course.)

I truly believe that he can use his genius to bring peace to the world.

However, political decision makers may not always follow logical solutions. Other factors may dominate their decisions. These other factors are the main issues, which no mathematician can help with.

]]>I wonder if you ever think about other problems in the world. The problem of people who can not get along with each other over their difference in opinion. I also wonder if there are mathematical solutions to our political/social/economical problems and if there are such solutions whether or not you communicate them with the leaders of the world?

I know it takes long but currently, those who advise our leaders have not been very effective in ridding the world of many harmful human behaviors so far. for example, Islam and its radical anti-human ideology which I believe is going to destroy humanity and all it’s achievements if not stopped.

If I had a son as genius as you, I would encourage him to spend some of his time on these issues because I, know that there IS a solution and some smart person just needs care enough to take the time and find it.

I am not a very smart person but I am tired of seeing the people of this world suffering over our ignorance. I wish to see the world in harmony and peace in my life time.

Love,

Sima

I like this blog . we know , you’re the best mathematician n the wrld . wht do u think about beal cnjecture ? ]]>
