Hello Mariana, you´re back, nice to read your interesting thoughts again.Greets!
Well, Mariana, I have some questions about the mysteries of geometry and maths...
OK, I was going to wait until you started another post because I didn't want to spoil the mood set by the pretty birds, but I can't wait.I just have questions about the nature of mathematics, and the lack of any real reflection of it in the physical world.Something I have been chewing over, simply the lack - in reality - of the most basic elements of geometry such as straight lines, perfect circles, infinitely small points, perfect angles and such.What is the basis of such mathematical ideas, if not in the percieved world?When will they be recognised as not being adequate for the job of describing the real world?What would science or mathematics be like without such apparently illusiory mental objects?These questions are not new, I realise some of them appear in Greek literature, but I am sometimes surprised at the lack of consideration they receive.For instance, nearly everyone is used to the idea of the straight line, but how many people wonder where the idea first comes from?
Andrea Guiu: Nice to see you too ;)
J: I am working too much at the time to discuss those things.Also please dont post that here, you can email me
