>Be me on university lecture
>Professor is ``proving'' a theorem
>I realize what he is telling us is straight up bullshit
>I immediatly stand up in the middle of the lecture
>Tell him that what he means by proof is only valid if we take the axiom of infinity for granted
>The rest of the class turns silent the moment I spoke
>Professor is speechless
>He says there is no reason to not accept the existence of infinite sets
>I yell at him that putting an adjective in front of a noun does not in itself make a mathematical concept. Cantor who turned mathematics into a bad joke declared that an infinite set is a set which is not finite. Its like declaring that an all-seing leprechaun is a leprechaun which can see everything. These grammatical constructions do not create concepts, excepts perhaps in a literary or poetic sense.
>Professor is visibly nervous and starts shaking
>He has no arguments and tells me to leave the lecture hall for disturbing the class
>The rest of the class stands up with me and says that if im expelled from the lecture they will leave too
>Professor starts crying and decides to leave the lecture hall in tears and ashamed
>Everyone starts clapping for me and chanting my name

Someone should assassinate Wildberger before it's too late.

Honestly I need to read Cantor (and not internet posts, wikipedia, or even secondary sources). Certain things about infinity have bother me for a long time. Namely we use the word to describe completely different concepts (like a never ending summation vs a repeating decimal) and pretend it is the same fucking concept. I don't think Cantor looked at what I care about, but sets are important, and he obviously is hugely influential.

All you need to read about is ZFC. Cantor has the ideas and intuitions

Because infinite series are series which has more elements than final limits,... Apologize to your profesor.

That class grew up to be Jesus Christ. I grew up to be Anne Frank. Oh, and that professor's name? Joseph Stalin.

Cannot be a series if there's no beginning and end. It cannot be separated into finite parts like series because that creates a beginning and end.

>> No.9403904

Jesus you are that retard from the other thread who thinks infinity has anything to do with "beginning and end" kys
