### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

One doesn't say, wow the laws of math are arbitrary. One says that the shortest route from Goldsboro North Carolina to New York is 496 miles and we cannot take that route because mountains are in the way. Idiot. The the shortest route from Buenos Aires to Shanghai is 12000km and we cannot take that...

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Sure in a city where diagonal lines are arbitrarily forbidden you cannot drive from some point A to point B in the shortest distance. They aren't "arbitrarily" forbidden. Physical matter gets in your way! Walls, buildings. You literally cannot drive THROUGH that stuff with a car: a geometry is impo...

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

And since , the shortest distance between 2 points is always a single straight line. Your link does not show a square circle! There's no point in re-explaining this to you. Clearly you don't understand the difference between the general notion of a geometry and the particular notion of an Euclidian...

Your example is EUCLIDIAN GEOMETRY!

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxicab_geometry#/media/File:Manhattan_distance.svg Look at the example from your own link! It shows that the shortest distance from point A to point B is still a single straight line. Nobody is denying that. What YOU are misunderstanding is what "straight" means in a ...

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Suppose you are a taxi driver and after your boss explains what your traveling time will be and that a straight line from point A to point B cannot be taken. Would you then say, " WOW! Squares are circles and circles are squares because common sense geometry is out the window!" I already asked you ...

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Actually taxi cab geometry IS EUCLIDIAN geometry! It's not! In an Euclidian geometry there is only one "shortest line" between two points. In Taxicab geometry there are multiple "shortest lines" between two points. Its just saying that if you cannot go the shortest route because you live on a grid,...

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Suppose you are a taxi driver and your boss tells you that since there isn't any street that goes straight from point A to point B it will take longer than a direct route. However, he has devised a mathematical technique that will tell you how long your actual journey will take. Would you be shocke...

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxicab_geometry#/media/File:Manhattan_distance.svg So you are saying that the green line is not shorter then the red, blue or yellow lines. READ YOUR OWN ARTICLE!

No it didn't.

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

OK, I am not 100% sure that the universe is not made of chocolate. I am "only" 99.99999999999% sure. Good grief, first you believe that square circles exist, that Einstein"s relativity is bunk and now the universe is made of chocolate. This "debate" is getting too silly. Are we back on square circl...

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

You wrote,"What the fuck does it even mean to "contradict reality". if I say that the universe is made of chocolate that contradicts reality. No, it doesn't. It's an ontological claim. It's as meaningless as all ontological claims (it's untestable). Nobody knows what reality is "made of". Some say ...

### Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Suppose someone says, " It is raining here and now and NO water is falling from the sky.". I do not have to go out and check the weather. I already know he is incorrect because reality cannot contradict itself. Yes. It's raining AND it's not raining. It stopped raining. Where is the problem? The ID...
