### Re: Thomson's Lamp Solution

I'm just puzzled, is this lamp going to reach the two minute mark or not? Personally I think there has to be two counting systems for this experiment to work and as such the two minutes will be hit and then I'd have thought it would depend upon the starting state? Hi, I haven't reviewed all the int...

### Re: Thomson's Lamp Solution

... and this thread WTF is more focused on a engineering issue with a classical cosmological system, that is more Pythagorean in it's physics. LOL Yes I am a Pythagorean. Or more accurately a Euclidean. The Pythagoreans were mystics. Euclid laid down the pattern for pure math, a pattern that's stoo...

### Re: Thomson's Lamp Solution

An existence. What does that mean? Can you give a definition and some examples? One possible argument would be for the ether, as speed is merely gravity from a center point. Word salad. Time zones are merely the observation of movements, specifically those found in atoms, But the lamp experiment is...

### Re: Thomson's Lamp Solution

A mini cycle, possibly not even observable to the naked eye, where realities move at speeds greater than light for a brief moment and then "flutter out". Very poetic but not very scientific. * What is a "reality?" If you tell me that a rock travelled at some speed, that's science. Physics. If you t...

### Re: Measurement: a math mystery

What is it that determines the distance between two points (say along a straight line). The absolute value of the difference of their coordinates on the real line. That is actually the definition of the distance between two real numbers. The distance is defined, not determined. That's a philosophic...

### Re: Thomson's Lamp Solution

You are right that 0,1 and one will never converge, at the same time in different respects, however in different times in the same respect they will have the lamp will create its own time zone at the lamp manifests its own time zone as its own measurement system. What do you mean by time zone? I'm ...

### Re: Thomson's Lamp Solution

The infinite acceleration of the lamp, combined with the clock slowing down as an extension of the lamps gravitation field, might in theory actually warp the "light" when the lamp is turned on as the perpetual movement would result in a mini black hole.[/color] It's not a physical experiment. It's ...

### Re: Thomson's Lamp Solution

The answer to the Thompson lamp problem is that the state of the lamp is undefined at the end of the process. It's undefined because the problem doesn't define it. For simplicity I prefer to start at time t = 0 and end at t = 1. In the OP's formulation it goes from 1 to 2 but that makes the formula ...

### Re: Cyclic numbers

I think you'll find it is a Hegelian re-education camp. Ah, now it all makes sense. I wish that if people are arguing from a particular viewpoint, they'd simply say so. If @Eodnhoj7 would have begun by saying, "From a Hegelian perspective ..." I'd have simply kept my yap shut, since I don't know mu...

Yes, the symbol "≡" translates into english as "is congruent to" which also translates as "mirror image" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congruence_(geometry). The correct Wiki link for the congruence of integers is here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modular_arithmetic Instead, you linked the geomet...

### Re: How much freedom does math have?

The infinity part we can easily grasp. But the -1/12 is counter-intuitive. One can watch the following Youtube videos to know what it is about ... To understand this one should study complex analysis and in particular the subject of analytic continuation to understand the context of this unfortunat...

### Re: Cyclic numbers

If mathematics can be "sensed" as you suppose, than it has a subjective nature. Strictly speaking the axioms of modern math don't make sense. I don't necessarily disagree with you here. However earlier, you were saying that your exposition is standard math. You emphasized this by linking to the Wik...
