    *wonk*

    Just a desperate attempt to hold on to some summer memories in an absolutely crazy autumn. As of next week I'm bouncing back and forth between the picket lines and consulting jobs six hours away while my wife couch surfs from Ottawa to Talahasse.

    (But I will get back to the chess thread soon )

    Well, it is a religion thread, so it is doomed to be derailed eventually. Just probably not into String Theory

    I've heard about that, and the sad thing is it may be impossible to prove. From what I understand, String Theory is not a theory in the traditional sense, it's just that the math works out nicely; there isn't any observational evidence to support it, nor could there be.

    But if there is anything to it, philosophers will have a heyday.

    You've probably got this already a couple of times, but I like your sig. Had to read it twice to get it, it was good

    Oh. See I want to say "that's pretty clever" but since it's just logic, actually it's not clever. It's just logical. Still good though.

    Oh wow that's sweet. I'd love to hear your work when you're done--which video games are you covering? When I graduate, maybe I'll have the time to self teach myself piano haha. But as of now, at the end of September I'll be starting my third year of university. I'm studying math and physics. Oof, I feel old.

    Cool! I have lived in Denton for more than 7 years now. It's a cool place.

    I've devoted some independent study to it, but yeah...
    Topology? Set Theory? Diophantine Analysis? Not really my thing (Honestly, I'm just not on that level).
    Chaos? Quantum Mechanics? Information Theory? Choice.

    I'm assistant teaching some graph theory right now (class in an hour actually) and that's not bad. Right on the line between "too abstract" and "not abstract enough".

    My first degree was a double major (math and physical sciences) but basically I just took whichever courses looked interesting. A year after that my priorities shifted (thanks to folks like Lockhart there), and I went back and blitzed through an after-degree in education (with a math major).

    I actually don't have *that* much "pure" math. Like, 3 courses at the junior level or higher. I like to be on the applications side.

    So i apologize I don't quite recall, are you solely focused on math studies or do you/did you branch away from pure math in your courses?

    Yeah, I'm pressed from a well used mold ;p

    (Actually, it's something like 1 in 5 STEM academics cite GEB as their favourite piece of non-fiction, so the odds ain't bad >>)

    Sounds like a pretty handsome dude though...

    Lol, Nooooo!

    The book deserves infinite press... and 100% no one has ever bothered clicking through all those links anyway ;p

    You may have just forgotten, my friend, but I would like to draw your attention back to the fact that I have *long* had the text of GEB linked in my sig.

    So everyone's already read it. Because they respect me. And read *all* the links I post. Always.

    R-right?

    My rule of thumb is to never trust any pop-sci article that has the word "quantum" anywhere in it.
