Hi Mr. Patiño-Caurdrado

I like your clear presentation of the subject.

I quote a sentence from your submission.

"Much to their surprise, mathematician Kurt Gödel proved them wrong. Basically, he showed that theorems stated solely in terms of some axioms were true yet could not be proved or derived using these axioms and logic. In other words, he showed that mathematical truth is independent of proof."

Gödel proved many things but He didn't show "that mathematical truth is independent of proof.". I've read some of Gödel's proofs concerning that subject. Some I understood, others I didn't. One of his proofs concerns using self-referential logic. Your Mandelbrot equation is self-referential. So, I venture out in strange lands when I say, maybe there is a math that exists that allows self-referential logic and yet still is consistent. Anyway, good luck in the contest.

James,

Godel was known to be clear as well as brilliant and witty with compassion. He lets us see truth from our own position.

Dear Rich Person,



Universe is an i-Sphere and we humans are capable of interpreting it as 4 dimensional dual torus inside a 3-Sphere, which consists of Riemann 2-sphere as Soul as depicted in S=BM^2 diagram in the attached doc. Soul is the simplest of the complex manifolds with in the 3-sphere, Mind and Body constitute the remaining complexity. Soul, Mind and Body are in a toroidal flux in human beings, exactly at the center of the 3-sphere one can experience the unity of the trinity and that is the now moment we experience. As there are 4 dimensions required for a 3-sphere, the regular 3 dimensions of space and the fourth dimension of time, it is obvious that the 2-sphere (Riemann sphere) of consciousness with in us is with out the time dimension and hence the saying "eternal soul". Poincare` conjecture implies that consciousness is homeomorphic (same or similar) in all beings manifested in all dimensions of the universe, as i have shown that Riemann sphere can serve as the fundamental unit of consciousness in There are no goals as such its all play.

PS: i thinks therefore we are VR(Virtual Reality), i "am" not GOD but i "is".

True knowledge of the self (i) is the only richness a person can forever possess, anything else is an illusion that quickly disappears.

zero = i = infinity = sqrt ( e power (i * pi) )

Love,

i.

Reality is anything that can cause an effect or can be affected by cause. Alternatively reality is anything that can cause a change or can be changed by a cause.

Hello Luis . . .

Your essay is very intuitive and persuasive, as well as easy to read. So are you saying that the natural numbers give rise to the structures of the physical universe, while the infinitely greater uncountable, continuous numbers give rise to non-physical attributes such as desire, intentionality and curiosity?

Dear Luis Patiño-Cuadrado,

Please excuse me for I have no intention of disparaging in any way any part of your essay.

I merely wish to point out that “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate.

Only nature could produce a reality so simple, a single cell amoeba could deal with it.

The real Universe must consist only of one unified visible infinite physical surface occurring in one infinite dimension, that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light.

A more detailed explanation of natural reality can be found in my essay, SCORE ONE FOR SIMPLICITY. I do hope that you will read my essay and perhaps comment on its merit.

Joe Fisher, Realist

Luis,

Math and goals. Math can cover all of reality and more. Every goal visualized and those impossible to dream. Still it is dressing math in an old shirt if we treat math re the ultimate goal much as we often relate physics to chemistry.

Your ideas and thinking are excellent for eg…
