I can't believe nobody's upset by my radical disbelief in negative numbers! What are you people, math freethinkers or something? Usually people freak out over that and get in arguments with me! Color me so disappointed. : pout:

You know, I was going to ask you about that actually ... I never gave it much though before though. I'm not a numbers freethinker for sure - I can't even bring myself to think about numbers most of the time. Actually, mentioning numbers so often is making my head spin a bit. Think I'll rest my brain a while.

Define "exist".



>>10 times the logit functions maps the reals onto (0,10)>>



And ten times the mathematics education of a layperson maps out your ideas in cryptic symbology.

...

And, does this solve the problem of us being restricted to integers?

Well, I further suggested that you truncate but that isn't invertible.

I chose 9 because to me it represents both the end of one thing, but a new beginning to something else.

I think sqrt(-1) is a rather fascinating number

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)

*school house rock* That is EXACTLY why I love 3. All that 3 represents--the past, present, future. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Maiden, Mother and Crone. The land the sea and the sky (part of the trinity of beliefs of the Ancient Celts) Many ancient religions feature a trinity of some sort. The triangle being the perfect shape and the strongest shape in construction. But mostly.......because I was an only child and we used to say that we were a Triangle family--all equal value and equal sides. When I saw Three is a Magic Number on Saturday morning tv I was CONVINCED it was written about my family. Especially the bit about

A man and a woman had a little baby

Yes they did.

There were three in the family

and that's a magic number.




After that we always sang that together. When my father was dying he requested that we play that at his funeral. We played it many times as he was fading away in hospice care but always held strongly our triangular shape with my mother and I on either side holding his hands. We did play it at his funeral and even had the chorus (printed above) in the program because it so spoke about who were were. People thought it was odd--but we WERE that magic number. Now one of our lines is a dotted line but he is still part of our triangle.



I love 3.

****I have a blog--check me out!
