Things to see: @invis_insight


I've worked for more than 13 years, designing products for web ventures, from 3-person initiatives to medium-large industry. Strong Presentation and Negotiation Skills have been key to this work (in addition to the full monte; infrastructure, database design, core algorithms, scaling, backed and frontend frameworks, test-ability, compliance, and UI/UX + SEO).

I also design technology & products by drawing from a history of fabrication, prototyping, sourcing, and scientific research (applied physics). I am a practicing sculptor, and establish new product aesthetics via my own approach to engineering fluid-mechanical processes. From this work in water, I have built a broad & deep knowledge-base on the application of fluid phenomenon to industry needs.

I have lead successful small-capitalization stages, wrote grants & engaged program officers, developed teams and timelines, design of experiments, measurement, and business development.

Well, all the big kids already got their Tex in. I guess it's up to you if you prefer speed over prettiness.

comment Modern Mathematics having serious problems with Real Numbers?
@RobertMastragostino thanks. This is getting a bit chatty, though. I'll just close by saying that he wouldn't get anywhere or reach people if he didn't hold a unique position - which fortunately is a position that realizes actual value to some audiences.

comment Modern Mathematics having serious problems with Real Numbers?
@RobertMastragostino this goes exactly to my answer, thank you! I've never been able to access many useful areas of Math because it is unintuitive thus far. Mathematicians (seem to) think that, since they can understand math their way, that Wildberger is doing something wrong by presenting another way. I think it's hubris against him.

You should re-print the answer here, since we aren't mind-readers. You can then also choose your own answer as the correct answer.

comment Modern Mathematics having serious problems with Real Numbers?
> I understand the presentation, and the author (in their works besides this one), to mean that the problem with the $\mathbb{R}$ Numbers is with the way we handle them. At the risk of this not being a direct answer to the question: As someone who had a very hard time with the way maths were taught in school, Wildberger's methods were a conceptual breakthrough for me - regardless of his higher theoretical foundations. Most mathematicians don't seem to like him because they seem to think he 'solved a problem that didn't need solving' by doing it in a different way.

comment Modern Mathematics having serious problems with Real Numbers?
Quite the contrary, the new thinking tools may allow access to ideas that were obscured with other methods. ---------- I was always a kid that found complete geometric solutions in my head, very quickly - and the same with complex algebra. Trig. killed me at that age. Then I found Wildberger's work and I was back to realizing complex analyses solutions in my head.

comment What are imaginary numbers?
I wish roots, e.g. $\sqrt{2}$ would have been left out of this. I think you did it because you needed it to express radius (instead of ratio) - which was unnecessary relative to scale or rotations. It did let you imply $\sqrt{-1}$ but your polynomial teaser was more satisfying.
