MathFoundations191: Numbers, polynumbers, and arithmetic with vexels II
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl-9c-Fy6Ao

Why do you not learn Vexel theory?

why do you still care about carrying like a brianlet?

Why do you limit yourself to count to 10^200?

HE HAS DONE IT

I'm a chemist, why should I care?

>>8208395
Damn vexels are neat

So it's turning into a lecture marriage of arithmetic & data structures?

Really makes me think.

>count to 10^200
What?
>>
>>8209520
>What?
10^200 longer than our universe is dense (in planck units)
>>
>>8208811
Mathematical foundations in general really just boils down to defining formal data structures (eg. set theory, category theory, type theory, lambda calculus, etc..).

>>8209520
his number system permit to go beyon 10^200

Non-mathematician here.
What is the point of this?
Most of these things are completely obvious and intuitive, why does it take someone with a PhD to explain them?
>>
>>8211046
Because there are weird formal problems that arise depending on how you implement these data structures. If you're not careful it is possible to introduce paradoxes.

That said you don't need a PhD to do this sort of thing and there are many different approaches towards the problem of foundations. Wildbergers approach is of interest because he is often critical of other approaches and because his goal doesn't include real numbers so it may not have the weirdness associated with such systems.
