14:55:10gingeraleFinally started to read 'God Created the Integers', a collection of mathematical publications from ancient to modern era commented by Hawking.

14:55:50Shinmerathat title sounds like what a discrete mathematician would yell when he cums

14:55:50gingeraleThe selections from Euclid's 'The Elements' were interesting in the historical sense but reading the translated takes from it was so incredibly dry, heh.

14:56:14gingeraleReally like Hawking's commentary.

14:57:25gingeraleAlso I think the title is a reference to some historical mathematics figure saying that the first creation of humans was the irrational numbers.

14:57:27PincerAttackShinmera: speaking from experience?

15:08:37gingeraleAh, I found the original source of the reference, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopold_Kronecker

15:08:37Colleenen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopo... Website (HTML), Title: Leopold Kronecker - Wikipedia

15:12:08ShinmeraPincerAttack: no it just sounds pretentious as fuck

15:12:19ShinmeraPincerAttack: and discrete mathematics is the branch that concerns itself with integers

15:14:02gingeraleSeems it was part of critique against Georg Cantor's set theory, Kronecker calling the man a "scientific charlatan" and "corrupter of youth".

15:14:53ShinmeraIt's just another short-sighted quote like Einstein's "God doesn't gamble"

15:15:31gingeraleYeh, makes heck of a quote though. Cantor's work seem to be included in this book while Kronecker is absent.

15:15:40PincerAttackjust another one of long-dead men's intellectual slapfights
