Re: Refuting Incompleteness and Undefinability

So the question is whether any one of these methods is the one and only one which is correct . Up until such a day as we can decide which method is correct, if even there is one, grandiose claims about formal logic can be dismissed out of hand. Observe that you have simply moved the problem elsewhe...

Re: Dilemma of beginning of time

You ain't going to convince anybody with that. But it sure will convince somebody. I am convinced. Not even if you had started at the beginning of the infinite past The only thing stopping you from being convinced is cognitive dissonance. Here's the challenge you can't address: Start at the beginni...

Re: Is there a sentence that proves itself is not provable?

Time is only one possible dimension and is distinct from place. The added dimensions that define one system must add another dimension for every REAL paradox of a valid argument of that system that is still 'sound'. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: So now you are drawing distinctions between "real" an...

Re: Is there a sentence that proves itself is not provable?

You are just being a contrarian. Of course you would say that when I rip your "logical" argument apart. Your assumption above is the extension of the logic before it. The example I gave begins with a Propositional type calculus that only takes the whole of a position or statement with binary values...

Re: Is there a sentence that proves itself is not provable?

That is the point though. The resolution of the static (finite) result requires extending to another dimension such as different 'times' (infinite). Que? We are certainly not traversing any dimensions to have this conversation? It only BECOMES non-contradictory once you extend the logic to include ...

Re: The logical error of the Liar Paradox

Here's the fundamental problem: you don't know what an "error" is. let alone a "logical error". Compilers/interpreters are reasonably good at detecting grammatical, semantic or syntactic errors. But they can't guard against intent. Any proposition you furnish - I can construct a logical system (with...

Re: Is there a sentence that proves itself is not provable?

Example of a kind of reasoning (intuitively) is: It is raining It is not raining Therefore, it is raining and not raining. If we restrict the machine to just DENY this contradiction, we might inappropriately draw the conclusion, It's not a contradiction. 07:44:05AM It's raining. 07:44:08AM It's not...

Re: Is there a sentence that proves itself is not provable?

The Liar Paradox in English: "This sentence is not true." The Liar Paradox in Symbolic Logic: LP ↔ ~⊢LP If a logician hypothesizes that the symbolic logic is a precise translation of the English sentence, then it is very easy for them to see the error of the Liar Paradox: LP ↔ ~⊢LP // It can only b...

Re: The logical error of the Liar Paradox

All undecidable decision problems are only undecidable because they are stated incorrectly. We know this. Any algorithm without exit criteria is non-halting (infinite loops). Scanning through an infinite set is one such scenario (e.g proving all the integers exist). And the original Turing machine ...

Re: Robots

Mea culpa. I misinterpreted my own Wikipedia reference. I meant to imply that, according to Wright’s fixation model, a threshold for sameness would need to represent a population wherein the differences in DNA were sufficiently small as to indicate a lack of interbreeding. Had I understood that a l...

Re: Dilemma of beginning of time

If there's an infinite number of real numbers between 0 and 1 then it follows that 1 - 0 = ∞ ! Surely. Yeah, good one. EB Well that IS your reasoning, Frenchie. T0 + ∞ = now 0 + ∞ = 1 Have you ever seen a coin land on "heads" 25 times in a row? I haven't. I don't think you are stupid - I just think...

You don't explain, as usual.

Yeah, there is.
