You are a programmer as well, I take it?
Not in a professional capacity. When the need arise, I can find my way out of some problems with some patience and help from above.

But whatever the industry may be, I do find voluntary retirement an interesting concept in general! :D

Re: Philosophy Now Forum Suggestions Box

As a programmer, I like to keep things simple, is all I'm saying. I have enough languages to bothered with more. Of course simplicity is always preferred in implementation but as far as possible not to the point of changing user requirements! Anyway, as a programmer all this configuration will prob...

Re: Philosophy Now Forum Suggestions Box

Or just store the characters in HTML, locally, for cut and paste. Why does everyone these days try to make things so over complicated, I'll never understand. Mathjax notation is very simple to use once you learn the syntax. And there are certain things that can only be displayed with it. For exampl...

Re: Philosophy Now Forum Suggestions Box

When this forum updates itself, will there be a way in which mathematical equations can be better presented so that they can be better argued and discussed? I have seen some physics forums have this ability, and it may give some better consistency and clarity in the mathematics section, when arguin...

Re: Is It Possible To Think Without Language?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Man_Without_Words This is a story about a deaf man that never learned any language, including sign language, until he was 27. If he wasn't able to think prior to learning a language, then how did he feed, dress, and take care of himself? How can we learn a language a...

Re: Philosophy Now Forum Suggestions Box

It should be possible to do that in theory at least, I don't know if it has heen done though. In the meantime, if you have access to Google Play Store on your device, then I see a lot of AI programs with good reviews there. You can check that if you have not already. From what I have heard, program...

Re: Philosophy Now Forum Suggestions Box

Rick Lewis; I have a question. Would it be difficult to make it so that the posts in a thread are numbered? I know that other forums have numbering on their posts, and I tend to have very long threads. It would be a lot easier for me to refer someone to a specific post that answers their question, ...

Re: How deep is math?

In these respects, with reason as proportion, reason can be observed as both quantitatively (number) and qualitatively (language) mathematical. In these respects, every one is a mathematician to some degree, in the respect of applying dimensions as forms of measurement. That statement seems to me t...

Re: How deep is math?

Revelation and reason. We can say, as Ibn Rushd has qualified it in the Decisive Treatise, that reason is a tool. And we know that tools are used to craft materials in desired forms. If we have the tools but no materials to work on, then the tools will not be very useful to us. The works on logic t...

Re: How deep is math?

Thanks for the info, I will look into it when I have the time. You are most welcomed. I think it was Ibn Rushd (or Avicenna?) which made the observation the what seperated the prophets from non-prophets was the perspective in which they seen creation. Now you can correct me on that, however it was ...

Re: How deep is math?

Now what I was reading at the time was an english translation, however I later read the the Arabic translation maintains this "poetic frequency" (I call it), much better. Just a very slight correction my friend, instead of "Arabic translation", I think you meant "Arabic original". No need to worry,...

Re: How deep is math?

Interesting post again. It is very kind of you, thank you. I apologize for the late reply, I had to do some research and gather some materials before I could provide a decent reply to your post. I remember, and you can correct me on this, that one of the "proofs" muslim theologians argued for the K...

Re: How deep is math?

if I remember correctly the muslims had significant influence in the development of algebra and logic. Yes, you remember correctly! :) Algebra is in fact an Arabic word! It is derived from the Arabic word الجبر, which is transliterated as al-jabr and which means "completion" or "restoration".‎ How ...
