Hi. You might find this paper interesting and controversial. It proves http://gamahucherpress.yellowgum.com...epossible.pdf 1) Mathematics/science end in contradiction  an integer = a noninteger. When mathematics/science end in contradiction, it is proven in logic that you can prove anything you want in mathematics, i.e. you can prove Fermat's last theorem and you can disprove Fermat's last theorem. The paper proves 1 is a finite number it stops A finite decimal is one that stops, like 0.157 A nonfinite decimal like 0.999... does not stop when a finite number 1 = a nonfinite number 0.999..., maths ends in contradiction. Another way 1 is an integer a whole number 0.888... is a noninteger it is not a whole number 0.999... is a noninteger not a whole number when an integer 1 = a noninteger 0.999..., maths ends in contradiction.

I reckon I'll find that the author doesn't understand real numbers, decimal notation, and more specifically limits. Edit: I was wrong. The author is just messing around with language without demonstrating any understanding of mathematics at all. Last edited by v8archie; January 10th, 2019 at 07:35 PM.

You know, I'm pretty amazed that someone not in the field has even heard of BransDicke theory, but the rest of it? I am struck speachless. And that doesn't happen often. @bas: Are you subscribing to this point of view? That paper proves nothing. Dan

I don't know what your point is, but Infinity is a concept of continuity, not a number or value. Last edited by skipjack; January 11th, 2019 at 03:10 PM.

$\displaystyle \infty 1=\infty \; \; $ If we leave 1 alone then $\displaystyle 1=\infty  \infty$ which is not true. So we can't take it as a number. Last edited by skipjack; January 11th, 2019 at 03:10 PM.

Not using the standard field axioms but that doesn't mean infinity isn't a number in other systems.
