Knock yourself out.

I erred: it's the Perimeter Institute, not Stamford.

I can say exactly the same about you.

I didn't watch your vid, but my guess was correct that you saw some vid and misunderstood it.

If you have an actual link to a proof of the false statement you made, post it.

There's a theorem that you can pull out a constant from a convergent series. If you pull out a constant from a divergent series, you get bogus results that are floating around the Internet. There are many sources that explain Ramunajan summation, but you are not interested in understanding.

No your guess was incorrect. But since we now know that the level of proof you require for any claim is precisely zero, you can have no reasonable objections to anything I have said. It rather puts the rest of your output in context though.

It's a shame, because I thought there was a chance of having an intelligent debate with someone who understood the subject, but clearly I was wrong. You're just parrotting whatever it is that you decided long ago without any critical thought at all.

I was not taljing about Ramaujan summation, as any fool would know if they looked at the ideas and resources provided.

For the "For whatever you think it's worth
department":

History, Travel, Arts, Science, People, Places | Smithsonian

Here's an excerpt:

According to Physics Central, 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + …
only equals -1/12 because the
mathematicians redefined the equal sign. In
this style of mathematics, called analytical
continuation, "=" stopped meaning “is equal
to” and started meaning “is associated with.”
Tricky mathematicians.

2 x {0,1} = {0,0,1,1} and NOT {0,2}

You have no clue as to what you are talking about.
