@AsafKaragila Yes I was having a bad day. Thanks for being the better man here.

At any rate, I had enough of this oligarchial mafiosi like moderation. I leave you all with your self-patting badges to feel good about yourselves instead of seeing the broader picture how this innocuous question would actually benefit education and widening of knowledge. So miopic. Sheesh.

@Asaf Karagila You might want to refrain from the ad hominem labelto live up to your preciously coveted "reputation". Also as a courtesy "we" expect that the community doesn't unilaterally belong to you when you start making assumptive gestures as "I expect" ex cathedra It's not your or my forum, it's our forum. How does it NOT relate to logic? Wanna define "logic" for me with Goedelian rigor?

@AsafKaragila It may be "open ended" and vague but it has EVERYTHING to do with logic.

comment A question about infinity
It is more of a philosophy question, something I asked here.

You are not the only one. Hermann Weyl must have lost sleep over it too.

comment Logical consequence of Euclid's theorem
@AlecosPapadopoulos I actually did think in a similar manner. Intuitively, if there is an endless supply of prime numbers, then one can always find a prime number which cannot be compressed and written given all the particles in the universe. Am I off? So a better question would have been: is there a Kolmogorov complexity of prime numbers?

@Dan No you understood right; I did not realize that an entire field of cryptography is based on this theorem: carlossicoli.free.fr/M/…
