Mathematics contains no information whatsoever. It is nothing more than a complex internally self consistent language. The great power of mathematics is that, once you are confident you can apply some set defined mathematical concepts to a concept you have in your imagination, most all of the logical deductions consistent with that concept have already been deduced for you.

That saves you a lot of work (years and years of work if you get right down to the important issues). Math is a very important tool and it is worth while to learn it.

And yes, it is all circular. My point in my opus is that it appears that most everything is circular.

Have fun -- Dick
