Maths or at least the start of a mathematical understanding stems from an ability to quantify certain things about the world, even some monkeys show the ability to be able to tell who has more food so its only one step removed from being able to tell more exactly how much more, Numbers being a representation of a sliding scale. Being able to quantify in the world can be a useful ability when it comes to survival and humans have taken it to new heights here on earth when it comes to detail anyway.
This is how it seems to me anyway.

result, you say that math is "pointless as a tool" but yet you base all of your theories around math (however hairbrained they may be). It is beyond frustration to know that you are 27, and your native language is English (which you told me yourself). Yet you still write how you do, it is completely unreadable. I beg of you, quit the games, if you admit to being a young kid, noones going to fault you. We are most likely going to respect you more for being honest about who you really are, and how you can in no way, write in a manner that is remotely acceptable. I understand that English people talk different than Americans do (I am an american). I have had contact for the last 4 or 5 years with Austrailians, and Brazillians. The Aussies know english, the Brazillians are horrible at speaking it (the ones I know) but I can still understand exactly what they are saying. Can you just please come clean? On every board you post, people are being confused by the way you speak, appeal to the greater good, tell us the truth.
and I wanted to add also, that you state that studieng a reading books are boring, how can you honestly hope to be taken seriously?? I'm serious man, give it up, quit the act, its not cool anymore. You are the hoax of the worst kind, you are just on here messing around, not even knowing what you are doing. Give up the act, for the sake of ATS.
People in this forum, I'm sorry to be so blunt, and harsh, but I was generally intereste in one of his "theories" (or truths, as he put it), I was willing to learn more, and he basically fed me the line of "its true, because I say its true". People like that have always bugged me.
