Dick,

I dare say we all learned our first tidbit of math after having developed a sense of 'individuality.' And, given your confidence, I think if fluid math were the basis of your work your conclusion would be that continuity is reality, and that no discrete segments of this continuity exist outside our imaginations.

>>>"If you carefully examine my work, you will see that continuity has completely vanished from what I call my 'knowable data'; all is discrete. Continuity remains only in the explanation: i.e., the mathematical model of reality."

We Western types arrived at continuity in mathematics a long time after we'd taken discrete mathematics for granted. Perhaps this attitude represents the human condition, an instinctive assessment of oneself as less than what one may consider, yet more substantial than absolute nothingness.

Sorry, but your failure to understand this is why I have little respect for your intellect.

-LH
