noooo aren't supertasks tasks that are completed?jliat wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 8:35 amyou never do - its a supertask (i love the term..)

you just cant get over that infinity isnt a value, thats why you keep positing meaningless gibberish such as "infinity is only 1 larger than a finite number", i never suggested such a thing but you sure are stuck on it

everything to do with value, you somehow think mathematical operations work the same on infinites because you keep mistaking infinity for a value
you feel like a dunce because you are ignorant of set notation...
tim is everyone?jliat wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 8:25 amYou never can, which is why its infinite. You wanted to start countiung down from infinity, so you need to get there first, you cant. Which is why everyone laughed at you.
Nope - you wanted infinity to be a value to count back from it, and you also maintained that removing one from it made it finite, thus you have a set which is one less than infinity, nonsense..killing raven sun wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 8:46 amyou just cant get over that infinity isnt a value, thats why you keep positing meaningless gibberish such as "infinity is only 1 larger than a finite number", i never suggested such a thing but you sure are stuck on it
Nope that was you, subtracting from infinity is unlike mathematical operations on finite numbers, or finite sets... you think it makes it one less, as would be the case of a finite set / number. Tim pointed out a site which shows this, as are very many others...killing raven sun wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 7:34 am

wrong again, i made reference to an unknown "infinite value", its known in mathematics as a variable...jliat wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 9:01 amNope - you wanted infinity to be a value to count back from it, and you also maintained that removing one from it made it finite, thus you have a set which is one less than infinity, nonsense.killing raven sun wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 8:46 amyou just cant get over that infinity isnt a value, thats why you keep positing meaningless gibberish such as "infinity is only 1 larger than a finite number", i never suggested such a thing but you sure are stuck on it

oh shit, you have an opinion
A set isnt a set if it doesnt contain all its elements. Finite or Infinite.killing raven sun wrote: ↑Sun Jan 06, 2019 9:08 am
i argue that the set isnt infinite if it does not contain all its elements, this is irrefutable
You have company....

the attention i give him is simply part of the feedback loop, dont you get it that he will argue with any position i take no matter how preposterous?
