"Posting links to youtube" might be a high art in the short-message
world, and I'll agree that the "All your base belong to us" montage is
an interesting popular culture motif, vis-a-vis, relevance.

JT, I wouldn't want to mislead you that what I've put forth here is
generally accepted. Au contraire I was surprised to find that it's
rather revolutionary. That said you'll find I am most definitely for
the conscientious investigation and discovery of mathematics in the
foundations, and particularly for the applied.

Then, the basic notion of a general theory, of things, then as to
geometry, number theory, and set theory, this program has as a goal a
foundation for application, analysis in the discrete and continuous,
toward mathematics for physics that help explain observed effects
extra the Standard Model of physics, and there are those.

It might be remiss to not note that of course there are a wide variety
of mathematical developments over time and in history that don't
necessarily have as much approbation as they should in the
contemporary, with Cauchy/Dedekind/Weierstrass in analysis then to
Cantor, Russell, and Zermelo and Fraenkel in axiomatic foundations as
"modern". Newton's, Leibniz', and du Bois-Reymond's infinitesimals
are notably absent from the one (though Leibniz' notation survives),
and primary notions of Kant, Hegel, Frege, Quine, Popper the other.
As well, there are modern attempts to formulate these particular
notions of the integers as infinite and reals as complete that aren't
the standard, in light of and in extension of the standard, for
example of Aczel, Priest, Boucher, Paris and Kirby, and Bishop and
Cheng.

Then, while there is certainly a reasonable framework for modern,
standard, real analysis as of finite exhaustions, as well there
remains the infinite and infinitesimal to be truly integrated into the
foundations, of the theories of these geometrical, numerical, and
other collected and divided objects, in the abstract.

Then, this program as commenced in deliberations in this poor medium
of discussion has a simple enough general outline, that seems would
trend to some 80-200 pages, has as a simple enough goal then this:

Drawing the line, mathematically

Then, where I'd certainly find it if interest where this general
course was already developed, having found it missing, sees for it a
place.

The way to be original is from the origin.

Ross Finlayson
