Economics and power drives all human relationships, social norms develop only because the power that be endorse them and they are powerful because they have a monopoly on military power and knowledge. The powers that be endorse them because those social norms serve their power in some way.

I enjoy studying mathematics as a hobby, mainly, and right now I've been pushing my way through into the land of formality and axiomatic systems. They were not joking when they said it was going to be traumatic.
Now, the question I've got is if it's possible to study mathematics on a higher level, as a hobby? I'm no genius but I'd like to believe I'm smarter than average. I primarily just enjoy playing around with ideas and discovering things, but I'm pretty awful at proofs and formality, although it's getting better, since I normally... Comment too long.

It's incredibly important to have an intuitive understanding of every concept you study. If you don't, you're just learning text and algorithms.
Tadashi Tokieda put it like this: I'm not proficient at reading sheet music, but i know people who are, and they can read sheet music and "hear" the music while reading. When you just start out learning how to read sheet music, you just learn what every line means, and maybe you read something like G A B F E etc.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I predict as things like synthetic telepathy and brain to brain communication develops as a science that mind control and mind warfare will experience a renaissance spurned by the new combat possibilities that this new arena and battle field that is the mind offers.
My question is, are you and your fellows prepared for the mind control renaissance? Are you ready for the ultimate hive-mind that will emerge form this renaissance?
>>7756366 What the fuck you talking about? I'm a CS major and university is hard as fuck. They force us to take math classes with letters instead of numbers and we have to write fizzbuzz programs. Only the smartest students can do this.
Did anyone know that if you fall into a black hole, and if somebody were to watch it happen, all they see would be you touching the horizon and then the image of your body will appear to be frozen like a computer screen, then your body would fade away until they can't see you anymore? They wouldn't be able to see you actually enter the black hole. Any other cool facts or any thoughts?
>>7756361 Actually that IS true, but not long before. From the perspective of a person viewing this whole incident, they would not be able to see any of that occur, just you freezing and slowly disappearing. YOU on the other hand, would be experiencing the scientific term known as spaghettification. (Also known as being stretched apart so much with the worst pain ever, that you would stretch out into you are nothing anymore, ripping all your cells apart violently.)
Mathematical existence is independent from physical existence. We don’t know for sure if circles exist physically (given that the Plank length being the smallest distance possible is merely a popsci meme). As for infinity, there are many different forms of it:
A set is infinite if and only if there exists a bijection between it and itself with one element added. For instance, [math]\mathbf N^*[/math] is infinite because [math]\varphi:n \longmapsto n\,-\,1[/math] is a bijection between [math]\mathbf N^*[/math] and [math]\mathbf N[/math] (which is the same with 0 added).

>>7756245 of course they aren't "real". they are an abstraction, just like negative numbers, zero and essentially all of math. saying perfect circles and infinity aren't "real" because you can't physically construct them and thinking your statement has any value makes you a simpleton retard
Should more people start smoking weed in general? It looks like it has zero negative effects. Even pregnant women are reporting that their kids are actually more sociable when they smoked weed while pregnant.
Should high intelligence be classified as a mental illness?
1. High intelligence is abnormal (statistically very rare)
2. The ones affected by it are suffering. High IQ people tend to get bored quickly when having to deal with average brainlets. They suffer from alienation and from social stigma / bullying. Also they are more prone to severe depression.
3. High intelligence causes suffering to other people because they get envious.

Should being OP be classified as a mental illness?
1. Starting new threads is abnormal (statistically very rare)
2. The ones affected by it are suffering. OPs tend to get bored quickly when having to deal with no replies. They suffer from alienation and from social stigma / bullying. Also they are more prone to severe faggotry.
3. Being OP causes suffering to other people because they have to wade through countless shit threads to find one or two worthwhile.
Will machine learning ever be rigorous? I have been working on it for a few years now and only until recently I have realized that most of it was empirical. Except for things like graphical modeling, a lot of the methods are based on statistic with a few bits of simple Linear Algebra and Calculus. Many of the papers published, even by profound labs from Google, Berkeley, Oxford, etc. seem to focus only on the numerical results rather than the underlying reasons. A method is good because the experiments on that dataset is good, period. They might introduce some subjective... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
