Matheology § 154: Consistency Proof!

The long missed solution of an outstanding problem came from a

completely unexpected side: Social science proves the consistency of

matheology by carrying out a poll.

As recently reported (see matheology § 152)

http://www.hs-augsburg.de/~mueckenh/KB/Matheology.pdf

mathematics and matheology lead to different values of the continued

fraction

1/((((((10^0)/10)+10^1)/10)+10^2)/10)+? = 0 (Cauchy)

1/((((((10^0)/10)+10^1)/10)+10^2)/10)+? > 1 (Cantor)

But 100 % of all matheologians who responded to our poll said that

this difference is not surprising since different methods have been

applied, namely the mathematical calculation invented by Cauchy and

the matheological method invented by Cantor. Although both names begin

with a C (like certainty (and even with a Ca (like can and cannot)))

the following letters are completely different.

The general opinion is that it is not surprising to find different

results when applying different methods. Even the application of the

*same* method by different people may yield different results as we

see daily in our elementary schools.

This attitude also has some consequences with respect to the human

rights. We should no longer talk of mistakes and errors in

calculations and punish pupils who deviate from the majority or main

stream, but we should only note beside the result who applied what

method and possibly also location and time because experience shows

that the result of a calculation may depend on such details.

For, he reasons pointedly: That which must not, can not be. (C.

Morgenstern)
