So asking you to distinguish between something that is absolute or objective, as opposed to relative is a non-starter. It's like asking someone who thinks everything is imaginary, if he can tell me what's real, or a solipsist as to what exists outside of his own mind.

So presumably you're neither someone who thinks everything is imaginary nor a solipsist. So please tell me what's real and what exists outside your own mind.

And that is precisely why you should never ever ever ever again try to appeal to mathematics in your arguments. You embarrass all of humanity when you do. This is elementary math.

Sorry, you might have to help me out a bit here, because reading a short wikipedia page on Radix, isn't clarify things for me all that much. So you might have to break it down for me in apples.

If I have two apples and received another two apples, if the radix is 10 i'd have 4 apples, if the radix is 3 than I'd have 11 apples?

You must first argue the "my" before your iPhone means dick. Kinda like you must first argue the "my" before your God means dick.

This is not an insult, but how did you make it to calculus and can't figure out radix (aka base)?

I swear I'm not saying this a slight against you, but I learned radix when I was 7. It's rather elementary. If the radix is 10, we use digits 0-9, hence 2+2=4 and 9+1=10. If the radix (or base) is 3, then we only use 0, 1, and 2, hence 1+1+2 and 1+2=10.

In your example, yes. Because 4 (radix 10) is the same as 11 (radix 3).

Uhm, by using elementary math as an example? Is it embarrassing because the example I resorted to is simplistic? Or that my assumptions about it are wrong, and anyone with an understanding of elementary math would recognize this?
