florence and the machine says the dog days are over but there are still dogs?? i dont get it
ahaha it’s just a song! not all songs are true! silly
what is wrong w/ the op…is it a troll. i really hope so.. someone let me know..
Ive oficially lost all hope in humanity
its ok the pig lives
the spiders dies though but everybody gets over it
Well I mean. The spider dies and the pig survives, sure.
But the greater overall message is that life is a lonely journey towards death, and we can stall death and make friends along the way but in the end we die alone. We can never truly connect with anyone at the primal level of our soul because each individual is so different and each life is ultimately a solitary affair.
I mean I can understand why venusaurphobia lost faith in humanity; Human society has little control over the fate of the individual. Fern wants to do everything in her power to save Wilbur, because she thinks his death is an unnecessary cruelty put upon him by human society, but her father explains to her that Wilbur’s death is not his fault, but a part of nature.
All creatures must die, and all creatures must shorten the lives of others to prolong their own. Wilbur’s fate is not put upon him by society, but by the inevitability of nature - despite society’s efforts to stop it. It is only through the graces of society that Wilbur can postpone his death.
He can’t stop the death of Charlotte, nor can he comfort her in her final moments. Because each individual only has control over their own fate; just as Fern couldn’t save Wilbur by herself, and just as Charlotte couldn’t save Wilbur by herself; only Wilbur could save Wilbur.
But the egg sack shows that nature is not inherently cruel, that death is necessary for new life to exist. That each life is precious and can only happen once and only be experienced by one individual, and though it may be temporary, the cycle of life will go on forever.
Ultimately we can have no faith in humanity as humanity has little control over our destiny; we each must forge our own path.
I’m actually kinda psyched for NaNoWriMo…!
i want to do this
i don’t have any concept for a plot or anything and most of the things i write turn out pretty flat and unengaging but i could give it a shot i suppose
i’ve been considering writing a purposefully shitty but potentially hilarious one
but I don’t know if that’s something I want to commit to
Just so you know “purposefully shitty but potentially hilarious” is exactly the tack I am on this year so if you wanna try it we can be tack-buddies or whatever
also ain’t no commitment in Nano, this is my 8th? year trying and I’ve only not-given-up once
I think the differnece is you can still call something unproved a theorem, eg Fermats last theorem. If there is nothing *disproving* it then it can be assumed to be true whereas a theory would still be called a theory if there is evidence against it. Also, in regards to the original post, once you get to degree level in a lot of cases there is a lot of maths that has simply not being solved yet, for example most polynomial integrals and the Schrodinger equation. My lastest set of notes genuinally say “if you can’t do it, guess or give up. If you can work it out you’d probably get a Nobel prize cause no one has solved it for atoms beyond hydrogen”. So there is still a lot to do, yeah.
A theorem is unequivocally something that has been proven. Fermat’s last was referred to as such, I assume almost tongue in cheek, because it was accompanied with the assurance that he had proof for it. The tricky (and unique) part wasn’t finding whether there was proof or not, but finding what the proof was.
The word for things that work all the time but must be assumed to be true is ‘theory’.
The word for things that don’t work all the time is ‘nonsense’.
Newton’s theory of gravity doesn’t work all the time
