A philosophical question

Why does man converse? (I am not asking – how come man converses?)Is just one of these 2 reasons true?  1) Is conversation just an “intelligent action”? That is, an intellectual activity; a “subset” of intelligence. Man understands himself (his systemic make-up) and that of others of his kind, i.e. the relation of something like “speech”Continue reading “A philosophical question”

Definition of a link/connection

Let’s begin with something else. When we talk of ‘change’, it is by definition, change in the same thing – the same specific property of something. When we compare 2 things, we can only compare their same corresponding properties. You cannot compare the weight of a book with the colour of a chair. So, whenContinue reading “Definition of a link/connection”

Diversity in nature

Why are things in nature more ‘different’ than ‘same’? Why is ‘difference’ the norm and similarity the exception, as against otherwise? An intuitive Mathematical explanation – Arithmetic and Geometry. Arithmetic – Consider 2 bags, each full of numbers – the same numbers (say, 1 to 1000). Pick up a number from the first and oneContinue reading “Diversity in nature”

What is a number

                                        What is a number? Why does “a” thing have to be continuous within itself? The number ‘one’/’1’ means a ‘continuity’. One of anything is a continuity of something, within it. One physical entity is a sameness in something of that thing, within it. (Conversely continuity is ‘one’/’1’).  Thus, any number is a discontinuity of continuities.Continue reading “What is a number”

Ubiquitous concepts

SAME seems corresponding to CONNECTED, and DIFFERENT seems corresponding to DISCONNECTED. Different – disconnected  Same – connected RELATIONS –  If 2 things are same, they are obviously connected to each other.  If 2 things are connected to each other, they have a similarity in them. If 2 things are different, they may or may notContinue reading “Ubiquitous concepts”

The Psychology behind a Statistical Reasoning fundamental

Suppose there is a robbery in school, and after investigation it is established that John is the culprit. Then some days later, there is again a robbery and again John is established to be the culprit. The next time a robbery happens, the first suspect would be John. Why?  First, a result, which will thenContinue reading “The Psychology behind a Statistical Reasoning fundamental”

Sequential Existential Knowledge

Suppose you know, and thereby say – ‘This keyboard costs Rs.2000’.  That means you know :  1) This keyboard costs Rs. 2000 You know : This keyboard costs. 2) This key board costs Rs.2000 You know : This keyboard exists. 3) This key board costs Rs.2000 You know : about the existence of something. 4)Continue reading “Sequential Existential Knowledge”

Semantic Meaning v/s Numerical Value

Consider this question – who is the smartest man in the world? Now whenever we say any word, it means that it doesn’t have the meaning of some word which is different from it (unless of course synonym(s)). So the moment one says smartest, he means not tallest. The moment one says man, he throwsContinue reading “Semantic Meaning v/s Numerical Value”
