Congratulations. By contradicting Euclid's _Elements_' definition, 'a
point is that which has no part' (unless you have a better translation,)
and not understanding a description of Hilbert space, and using improper
grammar (a full stop to separate two abbreviations that are a sentence
fragment, and capitalizing 'mathematics' when it was not in the context
of an academic subject,) you appear to be a poorly educated wack job.
Maybe you think you are greater than Euclid, but you are not.
