Let me get this right, you say my humorous post was off topic but leave all of the nonsensical garbage of one poster untouched? Pfft! Some mods have NO sense of humor or proportion.

some mods are willing to hear a fella out.

go here to see why we should NOT dis the ancients and the obvious clues left behind.

What are you really saying?

PI does not really equal to 3.14159.....?
That 1 does not really equal to 0.999...?

I thought that was clear by the 22/7 equation.
'rational pi ... not irrational pi in the sky'

somewhere between the twix, it is all in the mix
discrete vs. continuous?

maybe?

did ya know that if 'c = 1'

then E=M in the equation E = Mc^2?

c does not equal 1, so you don't have a point.

This thread is discussing 0.9999999 = 1, not your whacky ideas about Pi or E=MC².


I realize what you were discussing...
why do YOU folks keep taking it elsewhere?

how about discussing my wacky ideas that got attacked long ago.
did you read that post?

go back and do.
till you do....your comments are IGNORANT...

out of context...
we were debating whether ancient beliefs and concepts vs. modern beliefs shared archetypal structure?

irrational pi = 3.141 vs rational pi = 22/7 became examples.

you fellas only went after the usual piece of pi?
why no 22/7 = pi ?

anyway the argument stands .... old wisdom needs to be remembered and dusted off.

clearly.
IMHO

you fellas have problems with humble opinions?

Start a new thread for a different topic. That's how forums work. You have not even mentioned the OP recently. You are off-topic.

clearly because I was being attacked
not one person was willing to discuss the original post.

hmm
interesting.
I see it differently.
I arrived
made one comment

the MOB gathered and attacked
go back and read it for yourself.

you are still at it?

And 1/3=.333

As far as I can tell, we can't have a perfect system of maths unless there is a "lowest number" which can not be divided, subtracted from, or inverted to a negative.

I was wondering if anybody else had any insight on the matter.

[edit on 24-3-2005 by The Vagabond]


divide '1' the loneliest number three times or THRICE times by '3'

1st step
1/3 = .3333333333333

2nd step
.33333333333/3 = .11111111111111

3rd step
.11111111111/3 = .037037037037037
So what is the significance of 37?
www.biblewheel.com...

Again the point I am trying to make....
You can NOT separate fact from fiction.

The fiction called the bible that is veiling NUMERICAL laws embedded in those bible narratives.

myth = math = music

re: they have a lowest and highest number.
the lowest is the planck length.
en.wikipedia.org...

So what is the largest?
Can both the lowest and highest can be expressed as 'octaves'?

Kinda old thread, but the topic fits - check out my threads on my signature about PI - the pdf will show a closed form formula and is verifiable..

I didn't read through the whole thread, so perhaps someone actually got around to proving that 0.999... = 1 when working with real numbers. This is not a matter of belief, nor does it actually have to do with infinity as most people think of it. In actual mathematics, infinity is used as shorthand for states such as "for any arbitrary n>N some condition is met." To comprehend why in the world 0.999... = 1, first make sure you know what 0.999... means. 0.999... does not mean 0.9 followed by an arbitrarily large amount of 9's, nor does it mean 0.9 followed by an infinite number of 9's. To the first, 0.9 followed by any finite amount of 9's is certainly a number less than 1. To the second, see my comment above concerning infinity. When representing a number with decimal expansion, use the definition of decimal expansion! Decimal expansion denotes a number that is the limit of the sequence (a, a b/10, a + b/10 + c/100,...). For example, 2.25 is equal to the limit of (2, 2 + 2/10, 2 + 2/10 + 5/100, 2 + 2/10 + 5/100 + 0/1000, + 2 + 2/10 + 5/100 + 0/1,000 + 0/10,000). It is easy to see that the limit of this sequence is 2 + 2/10 + 5/100 = 9/4.

But what is a limit? Again, go by the standard mathematical definition! A limit of the sequence (x_n) is a number L such that for any number E>0 there exists an natural number N such that for any natural number K such that if K is greater to or equal than N, |L-(x_K)| < E. In English: The sequence (x_n) is arbitrarily close (that is, less than any E) to L at some point in the sequence (that is, at the Nth term) and every point thereafter (any Kth term after the Nth term). Furthermore, if a sequence has a limit, it is unique. There is no doubt that the sequence (0.9, 0.99, 0.999, 0.9999,...) can be arbitrarily close to 1 simply by reaching some term in its sequence. It is impossible to show that there is a number greater to or equal than 1 that can possibly equal 0.999… as the sequence would either surpass the number and begin diverging from it or there would be a fixed gap between the proposed number and the limit of the sequence (e.g., if you think 0.999… = 1.1, then you will never find a ϵ
