Insane you say ? I certainly hope so ! Appearing sane amongst the din, decay, and filth that is mankind is a signal of severe mental dysfunction. Being sent mad by the horror of mans existance is a sign of a healthy mind, and nothing more.

Nice find Vitchilo.
I'm extremely jealous of this young man. I hope he keeps on making new scientific discoveries and tells us lots of scientific things that we don't know about. I wish the very best for this young man.edit on 24-3-2011 by RussianScientists because: (no reason given)

Was surprised to find out today that he's on Glenn Beck right now. I had a feeling he'd do something like that. lol At least his parents look like nice people

In addition to having a photographic memory he also has a PASSION for math and physics.
Lets wait and see if he invents something mankind really needs.

First of all Einstein's theory of relativity is rubbish in the first place. Second of all I've seen kids like this. He might be doing pretty simple stuff now, but he has an interest in the subject and his skills will explode towards the end of high school.
Where can I find his view on the theory?

"No, it is only infinity if it has a complex quotient."
Quotient is just a result of a division. Here's a complex quotient for you: 8.54*10^125. It's a FINITE NUMBER. No infinity involved.
"No, it is only infinity if it has...a limit"
Infinity means absence of a limit. How's that for an obvious?
"1/0 by itself does not imply a limit"
And i thought i said 1/0 was infinity. The irony is, this part of your quote, which is BS is contrary to the rest of your quote. saying BS and contradicting it with another BS is mind blowing.
"It is only infinity in certain cases, not all."
This makes no sense, even in relation to the rest of your post.
"How does it "go to infinity" if it cannot converge on anything?"
Numbers converge when they add up to a finite result, limit that is. Now reread your own quote above.
"Again, it can only converge on infinity via limits."
This sounds like new type of math that i never heard of. If something converges there's a limit. If there's a limit- there's no infinity. Limit=/= Infinity.
This was one of the most infantile full of shyt posts that i have ever come across.edit on 27-3-2011 by delicatessen because: grammatika

Not to mention this whole "complex quotient" had nothing to do with Infinity being Infinite.
I bet the guy did just that. Sorry, but if you dont know math, Wiki won't help. It's good for BS-ing your way through, say, history debates.

Again when numbers converge they add up to a whole. When something keeps adding and adding TO INFINITY there's no talk of this "whole" - nothing converges. By his "math", something converges when it goes to infinity.
As for the "complex number" there was no talk of complex numbers.
He meant to say that ONLY results of POLYNOMIAL RATIOS which he described as "COMPLEX QUOTIENT" approach infinity.
