The main thing to remember in the glass question is that it is refillable.
I don’t think this is what they mean when people say we need to stay grounded.
It’s because that old saying is really true, “Time flys when you’re having fun”.
I just hope he made up the premise. But if it is true, that’s some real bitter sweet irony. Given the gross failures of our system of Government it is quite possible.
Well, only a billionaire has that much money to burn.
You are still making the perceptional mistake of only accepting that “Real Numbers” are the only valid ones. Both Infinity and Zero are concepts that transcend that notion. Infinity is not only real, there are an infinite number of possible Realities and each one is both equally valid and invalid based on the perspective you choose to take to visualize them. Using convoluted math to prove your point only reminds me of what I really learned in two semesters of Statistics, data can always be manipulated to produce the desired results.
Don’t get me wrong. I do believe that the desired end state of the GND is where we need to be heading. Heck, I’ve been what we used to call a tree hugger since the first Earth Day. But until we can eliminate the stranglehold that the Corporate Machine has on our Political system and our (supposed) Representatives at all levels we will never see any real changes. Change is not only possible, it’s inevitable. The question is in what direction will that change go. I’m still convinced that it will take a true Social Evolution to allow us to make it a positive one. There are at least three of the Progressive candidates that appear to understand the full scope of the necessary changes (Bernie, Warren and Mayor Pete). But we’ll never see them say that publicly because the idea would scare off more voters than attract them.
At least it’s only virtual. Damage in the Real World should be relatively minor. But all the Social Media universes are getting pounded and the casualty rates there could easily exceed 90%.
Nirvana is a state of mind Keanu. I thought you had already found it.
Now you’re arguing just to be contrary. Dividing by zero does yield infinity. Just follow the series of dividing any number by itself and then comparing the results as you continue to cut the denominator in half. It won’t take long to come up with a set of points when plotted on a graph show as you go smaller and smaller in the denominator the result goes up asymmtotically approaching infinity while never quite getting there. Did you miss where I acknowledged that Science is getting close enough that we can’t tell the difference between what they predict and what actually is? Splitting hairs has now surpassed Baseball as our National pastime. That makes sense as there are multiple Realities all competing for acceptance as the only true one. BTW, there is a dog and he leaves the evidence of his existence as all those presents on your lawn.
