Having said that, I appreciate his efforts to solve the big problems. There is a quest for truth in what he’s doing, but it seems to me that sometimes his mind takes a bit of a tangent and his soul isn’t willing to get back on course.

My 2 cents, I could be wrong 😉

]]>Are all of you still involved in intelligently finding weaknesses and flaws,

errors in anything published by Miles Mathis? I’m gullible on occasion,

I find in hindsight. Looking for an experienced eye here, but keeping the man himself, and any idea he produces, separate, and no campaign, no witch hunt.

the error occurs very early:

“The remaining NPO’s must meet each other, in which case our number of NPO-NPO sums as a fraction of odd sums would be represented by [(x/4) – y]/(x/4) ”

Here the x/4 entry represents the unique “odd to odd” sums of x. So for example if x was 12 it would be 11-1, 9-3, 7-5. Cleary in this case if you wish to remove the y prime entries (of which there are “y primes less than x”) from the list, you would (naively) remove y/2 entries – not y as he has used in his equation. In the example of 12, since y = 4 (giving him the benefit of the doubt and not counting 2 as a prime leaving 4 primes (11, 7, 5, 3)), you end up with (12/4-4)/(12/4) which is -1/4 – clearly ludicrous.

I also said “naively” because you could not even take y/2 as the number of primes because their proportion is not evenly distributed. You’d presumably have to have a ln(x/2) somewhere in there along with other terms to qualify the primes count.

These kind of threads always reveal more about the human psyche than about physical or math theory.”

Did you really just say that, Miles? True of your work, as well, I should say. And we’re not even discussing your Humbert Humbert-like fascination with the little blonde girl. If Taschen wouldn’t publish it, it either wasn’t worth publishing or was beyond disturbing.

]]>I feel you misunderstand a great deal of simple mathematics.”

That TOTALLY doesn’t remind me of anyone. No one at all. Nope. Can’t think of a single person that reminds me of. Strange.

]]>Here you’re simply saying that any even number x could be written as the sum of x 1s. That is hardly ”publishable” except in the JMILC, the Journal of Mommy I Learned to Count.
