***** Luis Hamburg:
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.

Yes, that is exactly what you would think if you believed everyone followed the the urges of their id! However, if you had ever taken the trouble to understand anything I have said, you would understand differently.

***** Luis Hamburg:
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.

Perhaps the attitude of the "Western types" represents the success of discovering a mathematics which could represent the continuity they had always presumed to be the real character of the Universe they find themselves in!

You give no evidence of thinking at all.

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

I am afraid your respect is worth very little in my book considering the fact that you are apparently incapable of thinking anything out.
