Quote: "The main lesson to be taken from this example is that a zero-probability event is not an event that never happens: in some probability models, where the sample space is not countable, zero-probability events do happen all the time!"
Now, I would love to hear the author's explanation of what it means for mathematical phenomenon to "happen" -- not just happen, but "all the time". Does he really believe mathematical objects experience events in time?
Such crapola. Isn't time mathematicians got over it? But I suppose it sells.
