10*11 - 10*10 = ... 10*1 (funny how that is)
9*11 - 9*9 = ...9*2
This's no more complex than any other series of numbers to be honest, it's just an odd formula for writing a fairly strange looking ending result.
But yeah, on the point of "Numbers are not nonsensical by default" is true; the easiest way to see that is not by using such an example as this, but by converting to a different base (egypt and many other cultures before ours counted in base-3 instead of base-10). Despite the base 3 being used, the same basic concepts still applied anyway.
Well... not quite. Pi is a good example of randomness in math. Another one is 'e', used in most biological growth mathematics. They don't seem to make any sense to us, they don't repeat, and they're just... weird. No matter whot base counting system yeu use, assumming the use of only whole numbers.Nobody invented random numbers. There is nothing random in math.
Physics is based on math. If it were not so, it would be rendered nonsense.
Therefore physics is not random.
Some calculations, especially once yeu get down to the quantum level, start going really really... 'interesting' as well. It's not that the math isn't random, it's that regardless of whot the occurance is, there's a consistant method of behaviour which can be reliably plotted out. It may look like a total jumbled mess of insanity by the time yeu've figured it out mathematically, but at least it can be plotted.
Math isn't random in and of itself because it's a system for describing whot is already known. It's like saying "Book" isn't random, because it uses 4 english letters! Well yeah... the reason why it uses 4 english letters is PROBABLY related to the fact that... yeu know... it's an english word >.>;;
Physics doesn't RELY on math so much... physics is just a description of whot already exists; the universe exists whether math and physics does or not. Physics is just a list of observations, and math is the recorded system used to quantify those observations. Nature itself can still be quite chaotic, but does so in a way that makes mathematical sense on the surface.
Whether the universe *IS* chaotic, or runs like clockwork... erm... we don't know. The whole quantum physics thing is showing us that there's some SERIOUSLY screwed up stuff going on... the proof that schrodenger's cat theory is actually TRUE, at least on a molecular level, is kind of mind boggling that something can literally exist in two completely incompatible states simultaniously until they're viewed, is just... gah.
There MAY be an explaination for this, that makes perfect sense, or... maybe there isn't. We don't know yet.
Math doesn't make the universe make sense, it just describes whot we know in a way that we can understand it.
Not... really. It therefore falls under the category of particle and quantum physics, as the "before the big bang" is actually whot M-theory attempts to describe, and it's still considered to be a form of quantum physics.Big Bang is beyond spacetime, therefore it is beyond physics.
Einstein talked about God, yes. But not of a Christian God. The Jewish God is the same as the Christian God.
Physics just describes that which we witness, if it's possible for things to exist beyond space and time, the study of defining such would still be a branch of physics, though it'd probably be called something different due to existing outside of the boarder of infinity.
Mmm sadly the definition of 'god' here is exactly whot bothers me, one in which the name is used, but invoked not as a 'being of divine origin' but rather just as 'oh screw it I have no clue, it's magic'.What was God to Einstein? What was Eintein concerned about? Physics.
So he needed an outsider, someone who is not, like everything else, dependent on physics.
It did not matter if it was a metaphorical figure, or not. Had he been a Hindu, he would have talked of a Brahman.
God came handy to Einstein, because God created distance. We need distance every time and again, to see better. If you look at too close you see nothing.
Well I disagree with alot of the descriptions yeu used XD However, I do find it LIKELY that god could exist before spacetime's origin, there are alternate possibilities as well however, and the definition of 'god' doesn't neccesarily mean an actual INTELLIGENCE. Therefore, I don't believe in god in the traditional sense, but rather as a possible entity that may or may not even be self aware. And may not even be actually an entity, and may not even exist at all. The evidence suggests its' existance as plausible, and even likely, but it does not proove irrifuteably.In other words, nothing existed before the Big Bang, nothing existed before time. There is nothing beyond spacetime.
Apart from God.
We have no disagreement, Katsuni.
For the most part I do agree, I just disagree with the method at which yeu came to yeur conclusion ^.~
