Numbers are not magical, and seeing a "hidden code underlying all of nature" or "perfect geometry" speaks more to projectionist wishful thinking.

Very long video, but he absolutely destroys myths about The Golden Rule and Fibonacci sequences.

RE: Rampant and Jeremy and the Kalam
So I did some digging, and this whole shit about PSR? I'd forgotten about this -- Remember Voltaire's "Candide"?: "Observe: noses were made to support spectacles, hence we have spectacles. Legs, as anyone can plainly see, were made to be breeched, and so we have breeches. . . " --The whole point of it was to mock Leibniz's PSR (as well as his "Best of all possible worlds" horseshit, all of which was part of Leibniz's strategy to "prove Gawd", and all of which amounted to then, and still amounts to, presuppositional "Gawd, therefore x, therefore Gawd" snake-oil bullshit).


Interesting and enlightening reading here:

Everything you need to know about Jeremy E Walker.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Jeremy is like a talentless singer jealously holding the karaoke microphone.

It will be somewhat annoying if he's back on 1st or 2nd of June when my boxing match challenge will have been open for 7 days without a response and subsequently closed.

I'll reopen it if that comes to pass.
