You are interrupting my chain of thought! The conjecture lives! I thought I had found a counter-example, in five dimensions, but I was mistaken. Say that a quadruple (A, B, C, D) of subsets of a (finite) set X is a rectangle if A + B = C + D, and AC = BD, where the sum of two subsets is their symmetric difference, and their product is intersection. Totally standard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symmetric_difference Say that a set T of subsets of X is a tope if, for any rectangle (A, B, C, D) in X, if both A and C are in T, then at least one of B, D is. Say that a measure on X is an assignment of an integer m(x) to each element x of X, and then that for a subset A = {x_1, …, x_k}, m(A) = m(x_1) + … + m(x_k). (I’m aware that measures are supposed to be non-negative. It doesn’t matter here.) Conjecture For every tope T there exists a measure m such that, if A is in T and B is not in T, then m(A) > m(B). It might be false; or worse, it might an be unprovable cul de sac. I gave up thinking about it a few months ago because I wasn’t getting anywhere, but now I am thinking about it again. I am a monk.

If X is a set containing n elements, its subsets may be considered as the vertices of an n-dimensional cube. For example, if X has three elements, choose any ordering of them, say (a, b, c), and then consider a subset A of X as the coordinates (x, y, z), where: x = 1 if a is in A, x = -1 if a is not in A, y = 1 if b is in A, y = -1 if b is not in A, z = 1 if c is in A, z = -1 if c is not in A. So e.g. {b, c} = (-1, 1, 1), {b} = (-1, 1, -1), empty set = (-1, -1, -1), X = (1, 1, 1). Totally standard: Then (A, B, C, D) is a rectangle, as defined above, if and only if the corresponding coordinates are the vertices of a rectangle. The point of the conjecture, if true, is that for any tope T there would exist a hyperplane separating sets in T from sets not in T, thus providing a description of the geometry of the n-cube independent of infinite Euclidean space. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperplane

A big research theme is that standard mathematics is infinite, computers are finite, so how to upload math? Hit the x^2 button on a calculator enough times and you get an error message. My teachers and peers think that you accept math as it is, and set up a theory of approximation of it. My view, finally, was that you reject infinite math altogether, and try to replace it. Reject it as the nonsense that it is. I don't get along with the right people. I don't fit in.

Pale greens and yellows. I hadn’t noticed that before, although I have long been of the opinion that the good moments cannot be pre-booked or arranged, and certainly not in loadsamoney Essex. My prejudices are telling me I don’t like it here. But here is a pub old school enough to still have a seafood kiosk outside, and cockles are the best sushi on the planet. They have enough malt vinegar and white pepper too, no problem, and serve up a Guinness without a load of Covid-19 bullshit to accompany it. It’s a beautiful afternoon. That’s a Shelby Cobra, a couple of the locals remark casually, and I catch a glimpse of it burning into Epping Forest. A Shelby Cobra? I’m beginning to feel it.

Today I started to catalogue the tile murals on the Victoria line platforms. No longer an insider passing through, I am now an outsider looking in. This person seems to know what they’re talking about: https://thebeautyoftransport.com/201...ine-london-uk/ although Pimlico is the best one, and I knew that already.

Re: I'm going to change the world

Scrap the above, I knew there must have been an anomaly. The reason it didn't register is that for 25 years it wasn't there. I have tried to find a picture of the other design.

Quote:
 Oxford Circus is another mural that has had a slightly complicated history. The original version by Hans Unger was replaced in 1984 by a design matching that on the Bakerloo line platforms, which features escalators. The original Unger design, an abstract representation of Oxford Circus and its Underground line interchange, was restored in 2009:

It has quality. I mean, is it not obviously the best one? Although it is clearly of the same epoch as the station, I like that it's slightly at odds with it, which makes you notice it.

 05-15-2021, 03:47 PM #398 lastcardcharlie Carpal \'Tunnel     Join Date: Aug 2006 Location: freak out Posts: 9,399 Re: I'm going to change the world Rendlesham railway viaduct is known locally as the 14 arches. It’s out of the way, and I saw it two or three times during childhood. One time I was about to run a cross country race at nearby Hilly Fields, and somebody said there’s the 14 arches, and you could see it in the distance. It’s not simple to find a good vantage point, even if you were born nearby and know what you’re looking for. But when you see it, there it was all along. Aha, a cricket match at North Enfield CC. Civilization. E. A. Bowles was a leading horticulturist of his day, and his garden at Myddelton house is a testament to that. A slight eeriness to the recently defunct Whitewebbs municipal golf course. Weeds on the fairways. I played it a few times. A pint and a half of McMullen’s Country bitter at the Wonder costs £5.85. I think you’re up to date. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Augustus_Bowles

Jimmy Moody was shot dead in the Royal Inn on the Park, next to Victoria park, in 1993. The hipsters have moved in since then, and I don't blame them. Victoria park is ultra London. I once happened to walk past fellow Richardson gang member Mad Frankie Fraser in the back streets of Islington. A tiny individual, out walking his tiny dog, looking utterly at peace with the world. An extremely violent and dangerous person. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Moody
