 Aug15 comment Is there a way to prove that $2+2$ really equals $4$? @AsafKaragila Yes I was having a bad day. Thanks for being the better man here. Aug14 comment Is there a way to prove that $2+2$ really equals $4$? 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. Aug14 comment Is there a way to prove that $2+2$ really equals $4$? @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? Aug14 comment Is there a way to prove that $2+2$ really equals $4$? @AsafKaragila It may be "open ended" and vague but it has EVERYTHING to do with logic. Aug14 comment Is there a way to prove that $2+2$ really equals $4$? I gave it a plus 1 because you are brave enough to ask such question. Kudos to you sir!

Aug7 comment A question about infinity You are not the only one. Hermann Weyl must have lost sleep over it too. Aug7 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? Aug1 comment Logical consequence of Euclid's theorem @Dan No you understood right; I did not realize that an entire field of cryptography is based on this theorem: carlossicoli.free.fr/M/… Aug1 asked Logical consequence of Euclid's theorem Jul4 comment Finding the value of $\sqrt{1+2\sqrt{2+3\sqrt{3+4\sqrt{4+5\sqrt{5+\dots}}}}}$ Thanks, I deleted it @ShuhaoCao ; but I really want to know the answer! :) Jun26 revised What are the properties of a prime number? added 120 characters in body Jun26 asked Amoebas and computation
