### Re: After Reimann

Please tell me what the opposite of this is 1. the number of primes less than a given natural number. is it not 2. the number of natural numbers below a given prime number. 2 can be expresseed this way F(p) = p -1. I.e. if you plugin a prime ..the value for the number of naturals below it will alwa...

### Re: Is the universe a simulation?

I merely said that physics models the world as if it were a created entity instead of as one which is sufficient to its own existence. This is entirely due to the Newtonian assumption that physical reality is determined according to a suite of physical laws whose origins lie external to the univers...

### Re: Is the universe a simulation?

A. No. However Isaac Newton thought it was. Have you got a reference for that claim? I find it highly unlikely. Most certainly I have a reference for this claim in the words of the man himself. Isaac Newton defined the universe as an artefact of the mind of god and in the modern language of informa...

### Re: After Reimann

Instead of sighing, why don't you simply state the correct definition of the prime counting function? That would be a good start. You have perhaps the seed of an interesting idea, but your exposition is unclear.Moyo wrote:Oh never mind...*sigh*

### Re: After Reimann

Look at the above diagram. The red are in the space for the solution for F(p) where p = 11 ( i only put some of the numbers...it should infact be a cone with 11 at both ends and 1 at the fulcrum. I'm sorry, I see no cones or fulcrums. And frankly including negative integers in a discussion of prime...

### Re: After Reimann

I don't know what you mean by this. Pi(5) = 3 but that doesn't give any information on what the specific primes are. Are you sure you are aware of what the prime counting function does? It only gives us the number (count) of primes and not what the specific primes are. If you don't understand that ...

### Re: After Reimann

It means "how many natural numbers are below a specific prime. No, of course that's not true. You need to read the Wiki page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime-counting_function. the prime-counting function is the function counting the number of prime numbers less than or equal to some real numbe...

### Re: After Reimann

Take the prime counting dunction Pi(x). It tells us 1. What the number of primes less than a given value x. Yes, that's true. Pi(5) = 3, for example, since there are 3 primes less than or equal to 5, namely 2, 3, and 5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime-counting_function 2.What is the value of th...

Are you still there wtf? On the convergence; This is not the seive of erastothese. I remove numbers with two prime factors first like 15 = 3 X 5, not numbers with two as a factor like 6 = 2 X 3 Good morning. In my timezone (west coast USA) I'm just getting started for the day.

### Re: The Axiom Of Identity *Challenged*

Lets do this slowly say we have a set A = {a;b;c} In what way is that element "a" the element "a". Why ! but by the axiom of identity.or in other words a=a . AKA (a,a). Oh I see your point. We need sets to define relations, and we need the identity relation in order to talk about equality of sets. ...

### Re: After Reimann

Lets plot the prime numbers evenly on a line and call it axis A. Then get another axis B and put it perpendicular to form a plane. On that plane exists all the numbers made by multiplying two prime numbers. Can you give an example to say what you mean? So on the A axis we have the prime 7, say. The...
