   Very interesting here also, if it were better known it might be able to solve some of the problems we have.

That was rather profound. I had already known of the plaques and records on the Pioneer and Voyager probes, but the Library of Babel was completely new to me. OF course I had to try it out, and put the following into mey search:

The passage was found in the following location:

  So I think you can make something simpler so it is easier to understand or you can make it more complex to cover more possibilities.

Finished watching it (took 2 goes) and I'm with Dave. My head hurts.

Our tiny brains can define something that's not calculable and may not physically exist. Ouch!

Data

I know I'm thick but I don't have a problem with infinity when it comes to numbers.

The universe is another matter but with numbers we will always be able to +1.

I came to terms with that a few years back, I refuse to watch this blasphemy any longer  :joker:  :LOL:

I rather liked that one. I already knew about the Aleph bits, and just a few days ago discussed with a friend of mine about the (four)nomenon with the number four. As a side note, the number 40 is the only number of which it's word that's spelled {in the English language} in alphabetical order. No other number has this particular attribute.

Anyway, thanks for sharing, Snowy! :D
