I think you'll find that oxygenated blood is always red, no matter how long it has been circulating through a human body.

Most residents on Earth would use their native tongue to describe the color of the Sky, therefore they would not say blue.

TBFProgrammer
2014-10-21, 11:44 AM
Of course not, placing oneself entirely off the axis of agreement or disagreement constitutes a class of options that is larger than one, as do the various ways in which someone could disagree. 1+X+Y, where X>1 and Y>1, is greater than three.

Targ Collective asked a question in the preceding post.

You grasp the essential unity of agreement and disagreement Grasshopper. Well done. Yet I disagree, which proves that unity can be separated. What does this teach us?

To disagree is to be at one degree or greater separation from agreement. Although that agreement may be a disagreement. Nevertheless as has been demonstrated above. Therefore to disagree is a form of agreement, albeit, if you will excuse the pun, a disagreeable one. What does this teach us?

A normal, healthy human being has marrow on this inside of his or her bones.

Lheticus
2014-11-29, 12:48 PM
I would hardly think such a thing would be limited to healthy people. A lack of bone marrow isn't just unhealthy--I would say that happening would be invariably fatal.

Having all the marrow sucked from your bones would be invariably fatal.

Neli42
2014-12-02, 04:20 PM
Not invariably. If one were already dead upon the occurrence of said marrow-sucking, no fatality would occur.

Some components of white light become visible upon passing through an appropriate prism. Collectively these are (unsurprisingly) known as "the visible spectrum."

Targ Collective
2014-12-02, 05:30 PM
Taken in isolation this is correct; however you miss an important point. *That which is light is not limited to that which you see*. If you were to pass a beam of infrawhite light through a prism that, too would split.

And it goes on as you extrapolate into higher and higher frequencies.

There is more to light than just that which you can see. And there are hues of light *below* the physical spectrum too.

Therefore, taken on its own merits I agree... but I *disagree* that you have grasped the whole truth, Grasshopper.

If you can see something, it is light. Therefore if you can see something, it is holographic. For light is holographic.

backwaterj
2014-12-02, 07:04 PM
If you can see something, it is because of the reflection and refraction of light waves caused by the physical presence of the object, not because the object itself is light. Life is not a holodeck (thankfully; I've had more than my share of Moriarty coming to life already).

Fictional characters do not actually come to life by using holographic chambers to simulate their presence.

Lheticus
2014-12-02, 08:59 PM
If a human mind could be considered (or projected as) a holographic chamber, this is very wrong.

A laughable claim, Mr. Lheticus. As Oompas work in a chocolate factory, everything they create tastes like chocolate. To say that you have a distaste for their music is to say that you have a distaste for chocolate, which is self-evident to be the tastiest taste in all of tastiness!

Interesting. Let's analyse this statement.

First one must have a conception of infinity. Infinity requires constant progression, although regression can be a part of that progression. However, for the sake of simplicity we will map infinity through progression.

Observe a simple kind of infinity, the 'diminishing returns of comparative difference' infinity. Let us say I am -49 and my mother is one. (These are just examples.) Next year I will be -48 and my mother will be two. As we progressively map these number lines we will observe there will be a point I reach where I become half my mother's age (from many times less, through direct numerical comparison). Tricks with numbers like this show us that passing through zero - the only indivisible number - gives us a picture of *infinity* as zero contains the fractal map of all possible fractals. Because it is the 'seed force' from which all numbers come.

From this we can show that, while I can never catch up with my mothers' age, I will get closer and closer to doing so.

If we subscribe to the theory of multiple infinities (which I, for various reasons, do not; I believe to be 'infinite' is to literally be without beginning and ending) we can postulate from this map as an example that infinity is cyclic - a circle that cycles on itself.

This model then generates from aleph zero aleph one, then aleph two, etc.

I personally subscribe to a model of infinity as a spiral, and believe that spiral mapping is the key to mapping pi. In this model numbers are 'thrown out' from the zero centre in an infinite circle, with a 'one' for each possible modifier of infinity, then a 'two' for each possible modifier for infinity, then... Whether the spiral is clockwise or counterclockwise is really not important in the measurement, what is important is that it is *progressive*. Now the entertaining thing about this is you can dualise it - you can say 'this infinity is positive' and 'this infinity is negative' and presto, you've dualised infinity - much as we do with positive and negative number lines.

What this means, in short, is that the only *absolute* number which a person can conceive of numerically is zero, an absence. Any other number would go into realms of 'there is no counting', even within the realms of variety of 'one' or 'two' - precisely which infinity of 'one' or 'two' do you mean from the ... well ... 'there is no counting' of the varieties of 'one' or 'two'?

Then there is the question of if zero exists at all. Evidently it *does* or we wouldn't be able to use in in calculations, but there's an argument that it exists as an *absence* of existence. Philosophically this is disturbing, as we have a number that represents absence - and only through that number can we find a point where number lines meet. For any number to exist at all, there has to be a zero to give it form, even conceptually... One is not zero, but without zero one would have no meaning and indeed no presence. Therefore I feel most comfortable in declaring that zero is the source of the form of numbers, while not necessarily following the rules the other numbers follow - for example, zero is a number that is not positive or negative but has qualities that are attributable to both.

Zero contains everything numbers can create; indeed the mere *existence* of higher numbers is proof of this.

Zero can create without bounds; there is no limit to how high in numbers you can go.

Therefore the only possible absolute is zero and some hypothetical, unreachable infinity.

Numbers don't have to be limited to exist. The number lines go without limitation.

It has already been proven that fractals cannot be mapped fully. The mere existence of fractals proves that infinity is theoretically possible.

When one considers nested fractals, one realises that infinities can contain other infinities. Indeed, the mere presence of nested fractals *proves* infinity is not limited to one 'measure'.

How can I put this...? Scientifically, there is no limit to the shades of blue, as the waveform of light can be infinitely subdivided.

So explain green.

The only way to explain the presence of green, and the presence of blue, and how they can both exist, while both being literally infinite, is to show them as nested fractals. And so it is for all hues.

So. Visualise a nested fractal of all possible hues. Assign each a number from one to whatever is at the end.

Do this, and you have a holographic map of infinity, expressed in light.

It will swiftly become apparent that this map is a *cycle* and it *grows*. Because there *is no counting* to the possible hues and *there is always more to learn*.

This is an exciting conceptual proof, as it proves even if we are in a limited 'universe bubble' where space 'curves in' on itself in a loop... there is still an outside of that bubble.

Who knows what we'll find there?

So I would argue you may assign a value to right, and a value to wrong; but you *cannot* while existent - that is, while manifest - be void. You will always be a kind of right, to someone, somewhere, even if only to yourself.

Nevertheless. Every time you say 'I don't know', in absolutist terms you are wrong, as you have at least the knowledge of the Piece of Being that you are.

Moreover, we have successfully proven here that numbers and everything they describe are *literally without end*. This means parallel realities are not only real, but *inevitable*, including the parallel realities - which numerically account for an as-yet-unmapped proportion - in which, as here, parallel travel is thought to be impossible.

This means that in some reality, somewhere you are wrong.

Now if you don't mind, I have an Improbability Drive to build. Bye!

A probability based drive is possible, but requires a governor for the probability generation.

We can agree to agree.

We can agree to disagree.

Or we can have one agreeing and one disagreeing. To agree to differ.

In a base one math system, all math boils down to '1 is'.

Silent_Interim
2015-06-20, 12:36 AM
Well, no. The statement "One is" is more philosophical than mathematical anyway. It is the statement that the number one, or the concept of it, exists, which while relating to numbers isn't reaaally mathematical. Mathematically the closest thing I can think of is 1=1. And even in base one, which is just an unary numeral system essentially based on tally marks, you can do mathematics just as effectively.It's all about place markers and values. While in, say, binary, 010 is equivalent to 10, in base one 00 would not be equal to 0. Typically, in place of using the numeral 0, you would use line marks. ||||, for example. So no, base one does not boil done to "One is." In fact, one is is not a valid mathematical statement at all. Try expressing it numerically. "1=" doesn't work. "1=1" would be "One is one". I can't see a way to numerically represent it. It is a statement about the existence of the number one, not a mathematical statement about any of its qualities, which is essentially what mathematics is- making connections and statements about numbers and their relationships.

...I think way too much about mathematics, philosophy and history for someone my age.

Gitpah? What in Lolth's name is that? You can't have anything in Gitpah, let alone a new name.
I just used Genre Blindness as a weapon. Aha! Also, Meteor Swarm.

Lolth is the patron deity of the drow. She supports Chronic Backstabbing Disorder.

I disagree, from a safe distance. That behavior can't really be a "disorder" when it's the foundation of drow civilization; the established order; society's way of doing things; how the Man Drow keeps you down.

Once upon a time, Susanna Clarke wrote a book called Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.

Actually, if you analyze the cost of the time spent versus the benefit gained, you'll find that most experts agree precisely the correct amount of effort was expended. Thus, that response--rather than being "too easy" as you so fallaciously state--was just easy enough.

A large majority of earth's human population care about money, and/or want lots of it.

Lheticus
2015-07-24, 11:33 AM
People only THINK they care about the money itself. What they really care about is what the money could provide them, commonly a non destitute standard of living or financial security--the freedom from worry about where the money for the next bill will come from. It's such a pervasive delusion that it's honestly very hard to distinguish, so you can't be blamed for thinking that.

While forum rules forbid me from linking to it (due to the comic's general and this specific comic's NSFW nature), there is a pair of Oglaf comics where a Barbarian Warlord has kept his line free of what he refers to as "female taint"; every son was born from two fathers...until his wife!husband gave birth to a daughter. Incidentally, he tossed his daughter into a pit of wolves to rid his family line of estrogen, only for her to show how little she had by tearing the wolves limb from limb. With manly tears of joy, he proudly proclaimed "truly, she is my son!" So yeah, no real mother. Oh, and there's probably some sort of hermaphrodite species that reproduces asexually or something, but I prefer my first example.

Anyway, did you know that more humans have died on Earth than on the surface of the Sun? True story.
