Well, that makes sense for a rock, but mathematics is about intelligence.
I suggest to you that math IS intelligence.
It is the sine qua non of intelligence.
So, you can say that the math KNOWS what it is doing when you run out of money, and can't feed yourself. It just doesn't give you more so that you can survive.
It will let you die, despite its absolute intelligence.
I will win here despite all the opposition because the math is what rules, and the denials of posters is just about gaining the energy--mathematically required--to allow me to change the academic world.
So despite your belief in your own free will and intelligence, your behavior is really just about the need to change one piece of the world as mathematically required as the math is absolute intelligence, so there is no way you can change what MUST logically happen.
So, math is not a rock.
It is absolute intelligence. Complete and total intelligence.
