I have a couple of questions. If one infinity is larger than another then the smaller can no longer be infinite or you have converted a concept into a number? If you can do the diagonal on one side then why can't you do the diagonal on the other side? I am also not entirely certain the universe gives a stuff about sets but they are a helpful crutch for us.

A doubt on Cantor's diagonalization proof: Since 0.999999.... and 1 are different representations of the same number, how sure are we that the number gotten from the diagonalization process is not actually the same number as one of the numbers in the list but just a different representation of the same number?

Goedel's proof is stupid. He didn't have to come up with such a complex mathematical house of cards to then postulate one axiom that is self-contradictory. He could have started with the self-contradictory statement and ended there. But of course, that wouldn't seem nearly so impressive! They did it on Star Trek when they caused the robot to self-destruct with the statement, "I am lying."

This has to be one of your best productions. It was like I didn't watch a math youtube video, but went on a historical ride that tied together things I knew, but never thought they're so deeply interconnected. I learned about Gödel in a course about logic, I came to know the Turing Machine in a compilers course, I learned about von Newman in a "computers architectures" course and found out Hilbert because I read weird Wiki pages I don't understand, like the Hilbert Spaces or the Z Transform, but nobody managed to depict a connection between these geniuses for me until now. Your work is amazing. Keep it going!

(18:38) Здесь ошибка. Доказательство где 1 не равно 0 , имеет и обратное доказательство, где 0 = 1. Доказательство следующее... . Если вы разложите числа на числовой прямой от 0 до любого числа, допустим 9 и замкнёте её в циферблат подобно часам, а затем сотрёте цифры и вместо них просто поставите счётные палочки (единицы), то выясните, что складывая по одному каждое деление покажет, что каждая цифра будет прибавлять единицу, включая цифру " 0 " . Каждое деление это цифра, по этому цифровая шкала не может начинаться с ноля, она может начинаться только с единицы. Ноль придумали дураки. От ноля и проблемы. Не просто так в древности числа начинались с Бога 1- раз = Ра-Аз.

Maths is invented. Since Maths seems to underlie almost everywhere we go & it is considered a mystery as to why, intuitively I think the implications are - All of what we see is just an illusion & that's why another rational illusion explains the illusion deeply. Now, how do I start working on this!

about the card "g" - the statement that "there is no proof for the statement with Godel number g", doesn't mean that there is no proof at all, in fact there is at least one, which roughly should be something in the line of "in a set of proofs there is at least one proof that can't be proven with any other members of the set", or in other words while that proof can't be proven by any other members of the set, being part of that set proofs that it can't be proved! So it should be the set itself that holds the proof for that unprovable by the other members of the set proof!

Wouldn't "Diagonalization proof" be a paradox? Because in the spirit of this video, it would be a theory and there would be no way to actually prove the 'new' real number doesnt already exist in an infinite list.
jameson44k 10 時間 前
@ifonlyurmum I understand the video's contents very well, thank you. You, on the other hand, have taken an entirely wrong message from it. What Gödel's incompleteness theorems mean is that for any set of axioms there are consistent propositions that can't be proved by those axioms. It doesn't mean that any question in mathematics involving infinity is unprovable. Cantor's diagonal argument, infinite sets, the cardinalities of natural numbers and real numbers and so on are some of the basics of set theory, a branch of mathematics considered foundational to modern mathematics.
ifonlyurmum 11 時間 前
@jameson44k have you watched this video? It clearly explains there is no possible way to prove something in an infinite puzzle, you can't apply logic to infinite
jameson44k 11 時間 前
@ifonlyurmum Yes I can, and I just showed you how. There is a logic here, follow it. The new real number is, _by construction_ , different from _every_ real number that is enumerated on the list. There is no way it can already be on the list. Furthermore, you can obtain more numbers like this from the diagonal - an infinitude of them.
ifonlyurmum 11 時間 前
@jameson44k But you cant prove that, on an infinite list, that number doesnt already exist
jameson44k 12 時間 前
The new real number obtained from the diagonal provably doesn't exist on the list of real numbers enumerated by natural numbers, because it is, by construction, different from every nth number (as enumerated) at its nth digit. So if you would object that the new number is already on the list and it's enumerated by n, then we can simply show that the new number is different at the nth digit from the number actually enumerated by n. Since this holds for any n, then the new number cannot and will not be already on the list.

Isn’t Cantor’s proof of larger infinities a paradox of self reference? The initial assumption that the two infinite sets can be paired up is like saying that something undecidable is decidable i.e that the pairing of the two infinites sets does halt. After the initial assumption, the proof uses self reference of the initial set of real numbers to “prove” that there is a number not in the set. But how can the proof self reference a set that never halts (i.e. never finished generating in the first place)?
Arjan Groenewoud
Godel showed that deciding that something is true, is a function of the mind. And it proofs that thinking is something that will never be understood as coming out of something else then thought itself...not material, not energy, not the absolute etc...as Sartre says: selfcon is not a being, but always something evolving... Thinking is something humans do, to evolve them to be free and do more and more love in the process....how strange it would be, that something like that a computer could do... if you reduce humans to some atoms and energy you will never understand...and make moral progress. you stay in an infinite loop😃

You can’t prove anything, you can only believe. It’s not just mathematics, it’s literally everything. You can’t even prove if you’re real or not. All you can do is believe the Word. Card “G” stated there is no proof for card “G” then believe it. If Jesus is the Word as he claimed and all he ever asked any of us to do is to believe Him then we should. “In the beginning was the Word” …and it still is.

Wouldn't the H+ machine first realize that it never halts, as it is in a never ending loop, and then realize that it should halt because it never halts. Therefore, the H+ machine would first be in a never ending loop and then would stop realizing that it is in that loop. Therefore, the main component that is missing from whether or not the Mathematical decidability of a contradiction is decidable is consciousness. Therefore, adding another variable into the mix of mathematics, consciousness itself, would create an endgame for all these contradictions. The H+ machine in this video shows that it is undecidable, but it presumes that it either comes out with one answer or the other. It becomes a sort of Schrodinger's cat, constantly in a flux of "Halt" and "Never Halts". By adding consciousness into the equation we can realize that it can "Never Halt" therefore it should "Halt". To explain my thoughts on this matter more clearly, let's take a look at the barber contradiction. All men in the village who do not shave themselves must be shaved by the village's barber. The barber himself does not shave himself and so he must be shaved by the village's barber. But is this is a contradiction. I do not think that it is a contradiction, I shall explain my reasoning in the next paragraph. 1. Firstly, the barber barber has a beard and he has not shaved himself. 2. Therefore, he must be shaved by the village's barber which is himself. 3. So, the barber picks up the razor and is now shaving himself because a man who does not shave himself must be shaved by the village barber. 4. He is now shaved. 5. He now does not need to be shaved by the village's barber because he shaves himself. 6. Therefore, he can now shave himself because he shaves himself and does not need to be shaved by the village's barber but that does not mean that he cannot be shaved by the village's barber. 7. Therefore, no contradiction. If the Village Barber is denoted as "V", and he himself is denoted as "A", all the other men in the village that do not shave themselves are denoted as "B" and all the men in the village that do not shave themselves are in the set "1". Then, set "1" contains "A" and "B" and "V". When "V" shaves "A" then set 1 no longer contains "V" and "A" and only "B". Therefore, until the moment in time that "V" shaves "A" they are in the same set, upon completion of the action the set itself no longer contains both of them. Therefore, it can be seen that time, space and reality are not being precisely conveyed in these contradiction theories and therefore I do not agree with Goudel and these claims that Math is flawed. I think the realization that Math is directly involved in reality, in conscious thoughts and in the physical world which make up the complete reality, allows us to realize that the way we currently see Math is flawed rather than the Math itself. :D
oooBASTIooo 日 前
No, you got it wrong. The assumption is that the machine H outputs, whether the input machine halts or not. H itself *always* halts. H+ simply goes into a loop, whenever H says, the program it read would halt. So, if you input the code for H+ into H+, the result that H produces will always be wrong..
Alive_Twice Dead_once
~in just about every example you mentioned, the common thread is the reality on a finite mind not being able to know all of the infinite. Obviously, every mathematical exercise that runs out into infinity will then cause you problems when you ask about what happens in regard to the unobservable infinity with no set visible pattern. What happens all throughout infinity??? Everything, except nothing.

Everything in life is : True or False ; yes or no ; 0 or 1 ; positive or negative. In this video you are basically saying that false answer exist only because you that a false answer can exist. ''B'' cannot be the Parent of ''B'' . Call that a ''set'' if you want. The only thing you can say is that ''I know that this possibility can be true, but it's just not visible yet.
