Box of Lights
This is the story of how the LC created the universe. He got his doodle pad out - the one labeled god - and made a grid of points for all the Planck time.

And then he labeled each point I.

That's the Little Creep, ladies and gentlemen. Fuck that guy. I can understand Egor and KC all too well; they ain't gonna understand the LC everz. Not in this lifetime.

Thing about the box of lights, one can only see a little part of it, framed by the perspective of I; and that little part, of course, is infinitely deep. The spaces between the Is, the Void. I don't know for fact that ol' man Georg lost his marbles in there, but I kan sure see how it's possible.

And yeah, I'm a gnostic atheist, fo sho'. Fuck you aggies. Tongue

Very nice post, Johnny. Thumbsup

Don't know if the old man lost his marbles in there or not, but he definitely lost his marbles somewhere along the way and that seems as likely a place as any. Big Grin

Johnny is interpreting his ancestor's diagonalisation argument. Ain't his fault if you ain't getting it.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Box of Lights
Careful everyone. That link lead me to Cantor's diagonal argument. Then I ended up at Russell's paradox. It continues from there into things I cannot possibly articulate.

I am now so far down the rabbit hole, I cannot tell which way is up anymore. Smile

If Jesus died for our sins, why is there still sin? If man was created from dust, why is there still dust? If Americans came from Europe, why are there still Europeans?

Well the next level down you'll find Gödel's Incompleteness Theorems but there ain't nothing to be afraid of there. Drinking Beverage

Yeah, HoC will do that to you Smile

Key bit here is the use of I...one letter that will mean different things to different people. In maths, geeks typically use I to denote an imaginary number. Look this stuff up....An imaginary number is what you get when you try and get the square root of a number equal to or less than 0. So?

Well, things get sexy when we come to imaginary units, effectively bolting this I fella onto other sums...then we can move from the one dimensional plane of 'real' numbers (numbers you use every day like 5 and 27 and 69) to the two (or even four) dimensional world of 'complex' numbers which is where mathematical pornographers like Girlyman and HoC live Wink

Complex numbers are....complicated and instead of thinking of numbers as like 1,2,3 etc, you need to see shapes, often four sided shapes...like boxes. In the shapes we plot coordinates to represent our complex numbers, maybe put lights on them and scatter them merrily across the universe...like quadratic breadcrumbs...

He also talks about the void, he's never liked the void because it's infinite and that way madness lies, because whatever number you come up with to represent infinity, I can always add 1 to it....So what kind of God would create an inifinity cold, dark universe, lit only with numbers that can only exist in your imagination?

A Little Creep

...and waveform. i^4 = 1. The universal count of n + 1 gives particles, and i ^ (n+1) waves, and the name of god no more than 5.13 ^ 61. Tongue

Definitely bugs me, theists talking about probability. Big Grin
