### Re: Why is 1 not classified as being a prime number ?

A prime number has to be divisible by I and itself not just itself which is the case for I But I have also heard that it is simply a convention of mathematics that I is not prime -I thank you a lot, Surreptitious, for your answer. I think the same at the rate of 80%. So we do have the same definiti...

### Why is 1 not classified as being a prime number ?

Hi! I'd like to know why 1 is not classified as being a prime number, and how to really turn this fact down. -I already have an esquisse in large part (although brief in text) of my reasoning, but would like to keep an open question as the title, in a first time, before exposing my concordant argume...

### Re: Why Free Fall has no dependancy on mass, but gravity, yes?

Hi, sorry I went asleep, yesterday. Since there is no gravity without mass, Yeah, that's the "Since.." which I am re-asking under leading questions. free fall depends upon the relationship between the mass of two bodies. "depends upon a relationship" does not mean anything, given the fact that a rel...

### Re: Why Free Fall has no dependancy on mass, but gravity, yes?

That's a question.. I think you realise the kind of problem, what is good, to give help. Huh... not sure that cheese is Newton, since Newton is later than Galileo. That is what I remember. But in schools, Newton is taught before, (to break the schoolers criticism, I think). Now, why this monopole of...

### Re: Why Free Fall has no dependancy on mass, but gravity, yes?

I'd like to know how (or if) Newton auto-justified himself I believe he had an arrangement with his housemaid, he paid her a bit extra and she did it for him. -Okay, let's accept it, but.. .."it" what? -I was so enjoyed that some one replied to me, endly, but for a joke missing its own foundation! ...

### Why Free Fall has no dependancy on mass, but gravity, yes?

Hi All, Since monthes, I (re-)discovered an old difficulty. This one substantialised itself to the more recent days. Here it is: Galileo Galilei showed that objects in free fall (further in the text: "fall") had no dependancy on the mass. And then, a guy named Newton, came, and we understood: "G M*m...

### Re: Apologies

Wait, some people felt that all apologies were the same in terms of the motivations, sincerity, etc. of the person presenting the apology??? Huh?

What is the structure of uncertainty? How can we model it? How do we divide it up? How do we understand it as a thing in and of itself? Hi VoT! I remember the times when (I was new here) you was a higher (and more sure) philosopher than me (what is to say very high :) )! But I am somewhat deceived ...

Hi! Either I am discovering the life, or to reduce the so-called "thinking experiment" to troll is at least approximative...

### Re: Apologies

uwot's apology thread was presumably deleted due to its toxicity, but it's clear that people were interested in talking about the sincerity and usefulness of apologies. So if anyone had more to say on the subject, they can do it here without the baggage. The story so far ... Some felt that apologie...
