Prasad,

you say "Without mathematics, we cannot penetrate deeply into philosophy, Without philosophy we cannot

penetrate deeply into mathematics, to both we cannot penetrate deeply into anything".

Would you say that mathematics and philosophy are required to understand the world around us? Are they the only ones? How about ethics? Physics? Chemistry? I think we need a little bit of everything to understand what surrounds us.

Dear Prasad,

You are very correct, we should combine Science and ethics in life, then only better results will come.

That's what I did in my essay,' A properly deciding, Computing and Predicting new theory’s Philosophy' have a look please.................

Hello dear Friend ,

Happy to see your essay. I liked your philosophical approach, but if I can, the members and experts are going to give you bad scores due to many errors in typing and spacing, it is sad because the generality in philosophy is very well. They are careful with the facts and Spellings, I wish you all the best,

regards

Dear Prasad Ramesh Divate

This I want to emphasize, because I agree:

Without mathematics, we cannot penetrate deeply into philosophy, Without philosophy we cannot penetrate deeply into mathematics, to both we cannot penetrate deeply into anything.

So we have to use philosophy which is beyond science .There is no other way to go towards completeness.

You wrote:

Unpredictibility, uncomputability and undecidability are outcome of intelligence but since mind is beyond intelligence, completeness can be traced only through mind and not through intelligence.!!

Have I understood your previous position correctly in the example of the mathematician Ramanujan. I do not see in his results intelligence but pure mind. I argue that his results still take a long time to be understood, not only in mathematics but also in philosophy of nature, to get closer to completeness. For me, completeness is in discovered mathematics and not in physics or any other part of human cognition.

Your essay is among the better ones.

Regards Branko

Dear Prasad Ramesh Divate!

I enjoyed reading your essay.

You write:

"I think rationalism is awareness of selfexistence and beyond it is the ultimate reality that is completeness. So one can say that rationality is incompleteness. According to hindu philosophy incompleteness is nothing but incompleteness in knowledge and existence. . God is unpredictable, uncomputable and...

Prasad,

You over all the bases well, but do you not think there's still a large amount more we CAN know? Otherwise do we give up scientific advancement? I think you answer that in writing; "The butterfly effect can be stated as there is plenty of room at the bottom and at the top" which I certainly agree.

My own essay explores those areas by using better foundations than the old ones drawn up when the atom was believed indivisible! So physics has become irrational and flawed. As you say; "The world is rational:"

Well done. Score boost coming.

I do think and hope you'll get to read and like mine too.

Very best

Peter
