It depends on how 6 entities interact.
Where are you getting this stuff from? Don't you know how to divide 6 by 2?

You cannot divide an infinitesimal because the energy for doing this is infinite.
How much energy does it take to divide 6 by 2 to get 3?

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

I was looking for a consistent mathematical framework. It is required for any consistent theory that deals with reality. These two statements contradict each other. If you have some consistent mathematical theory, it may or may not correspond to reality. So are you looking for a consistent theory o...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

The structure is on the surface but not within. You seem to be thinking of infinitesimals as physical rather than abstractly mathematical. In which case, how do your infinitesimals relate to standard physics? Are quarks and electrons and muons and such made up of infinitesimals? How do infinitesima...

You obviously missed:
We'll have to agree to disagree. You persist in stating a mathematical impossibility. I can't argue with that.

Re: Φπ² = 16

Φπ² = 16 This cannot be, because it implies that phi = 16/pi^2. But the left side is algebraic and the right side is transcendental. Those are mutually exclusive classes of real numbers. I'm not sure why you are unable to comprehend this simple fact. Wolfram alpha gives 15.9693553764781319645891701...

Yes, an infinitesimal is irreducible but it has non-zero size.
What does irreducible mean? If epsilon is an infinitesimal in the hyperreal numbers, for example, then epsilon/2 is a smaller infinitesimal.

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

This is my understanding of the subject matter: Any mathematical category, like real number, is internally consistent if you can reach from one entity to another one. There are two geometrical entities in real number, point and segment. But you cannot reach a point to a segment, by this I mean that...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

By fractal/infinitesimal, I mean a geometrical entity made of point which is self-similar. The Mandelbrot set is fractal but not self-similar, as I mentioned. Secondly, why do you write fractal/infinitesimal? They're completely different things. A fractal is a set of points with fractional Hausdorf...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

I think that monad/infinetisimal is fractal. What does that mean to you? What definition of fractal are you using? What definition of infinitesimal? Or do you mean all this metaphorically rather than mathematically? Point is the smallest substance with the size of zero. This means that 0*"any numbe...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

Consider a geometrical entity. Divide it to infinite number of pieces to get infinitesimal. You will have a difficult time formalizing that. Consider the unit interval on the real number line: the set of real numbers between 0 and 1. With or without the endpoints, it doesn't matter for this discuss...

Considering the syntax must follow it's own syntax
Its. Its. Its. "It's" is a contraction of "it is." Please make a note of it.
Yeah I know...bad habit.
