### Re: 0d Lines and Circles

Err no, I denied that the line is a set of 0d points. Take it up with Euclid. Or any modern mathematician. I can't argue this point with you. Did you miss high school math? The real line is composed of an infinite set of 0-dimensional points. You can make up your own math but you'll be denying all ...

### Re: 0d Lines and Circles

Ehh.. Zero times anything is still zero, and the length of the unit is 1. However you simply can't create a 1-dimensional mathematical object from adding 0-dimensional mathematical objects. The saying that a line is 'composed' of points only means that wherever you look on the line, you can assign ...

### Re: Four pointed Triangles, the Case for an Irrational Triangle

"I understand why you can believe the dot is not meaningful from a traditional stance. However I am not much one for tradition." It's not a dot, it's a mathematical point. It has no internal structure. If you feel otherwise that's your right, but that's not in accordance with usual math. And I'm afr...

### Re: 0d Lines and Circles

How do you account for the length of the unit interval then The unit interval is composed of zero length points and so it cannot ever be longer than zero That does not magically change just because there happens to be an infinite number of them The unit interval is the interval on the real line bet...

By the way I was very impressed by your use of large sized fonts. 1995 was a great year for web design.

### Re: Four pointed Triangles, the Case for an Irrational Triangle

I'm not entirely sure what's significant about this in your mind. You can think about the situation in reverse. Start with any isosceles triangle. Any horizontal line between the vertex and the base defines an isosceles trapezoid; and if we imagine an infinite sequence of horizontal lines, each one ...

### Re: Four pointed Triangles, the Case for an Irrational Triangle

I understood that! Eod this is a special day indeed. You are stacking an endless sequence of similar trapezoids on top of each other, each one of smaller size than the one below. If the size (measured any way you like) happens to go to zero, then "at infinity" you'd conceptually have a point; that i...

### Re: 0d Lines and Circles

10. And you cannot respond to any of this, because you can't. I can't respond because it's incoherent nonsense. I did respond to surreptitious57 who believes 0 times anything must be 0, be it 0 times infinity, 0 times fish, 0 times the Mormon Tabernacle choir. I gave the counterexample that an infi...

### Re: 0d Lines and Circles

Anything multiplied by zero is zero since it cannot logically be anything else As what other possible answer is there to infinity times zero other than zero The fact that infinity is not a number is not relevant because the principle also applies to non numbers There is not a single thing that does...
