    Hello my fellow Eggheads!

    I've just copyrighted and formally completed my masterpiece, and I really hope nobody has beat me to the punch. Does anybody know if there already is a "Fundamental Theorem of Logic"? Or something like that? Anyway, the last two weeks or so have been my "intellectual Marathon," and now my mind is shot out.

    Peace and love homies

    Which form of logic? FOL?

    Observer, thanks for responding. No, I wasn't working on FOL.

    So you have some very important theorem in some kind of logic which you will not let on any information about and you aren't even familiar enough with the field to know if there is already a fundamental theorem in it. I see.

    I understand your doubt and skepticism. If you wish, I will send you my work. If not, I would like you to refer me to someone else. Again, thanks for your time.

    Judging from your response, I am much relieved. I "googled" The Fundamental Theorem of Logic, and couldn't find anything. My work will either be dismissed as rubbish, or it's going to change a lot of things.

    Did you look up symbolic logic? I have only had a introductory level course in it at the Bachelors level and that was on the order of 40 yrs ago. Symbolic logic is pretty fundamental, being more fundamental than mathmatics. It covers the fundamental theories of logic and the symbolic language used to express them.

    Piaget. Maybe even Wittgenstein? But it's not cool to coyright logic, you know. It's a little possessive, right? You'll have every Vulcan after you.

    Are you going to tell us about this groundbreaking work of staggering genius? Or at least tell us in which mathematical journal it will be published?

    That's OK, you can't copyright (or patent) an idea.

    I could not agree more.
    But let's keep it open a little while longer anyways, in case he changes his mind and publishes it on this thread anyway. Should be an interesting discussion...

    Dear my little mathematical geniuses, since I have been patronized on this forum, I have decided to patronize you. Now, I offer a challenge: Tell me what should be the "Fundamental Theorem of Logic." Certainly, as qualified logicians, you already know this. Anyway, don't think too hard, it's "fundamental" after all. I didn't realize the magnitude of it's implication until recently...So have fun pulling numbers apart and scribbling on paper. lololol

    Logic itself doesn't belong in mathematics. Logic is a concept of mental function according to what mental function allows. It is a concept of psychology. It is more than mere addition or subtraction. This thread belongs in psychology or something similar, at best. Maybe you can outwit the psychology section?

    You have not been patronized here.

    Look - you open a thread saying you have discovered something fundamental, but you are not willing to tell us what that is.

    What is the point of that? There is nothing to discuss except your towering ego; recall this is a DISCUSSION forum.

    This is not patronizing, it's "fundamental" - you are an egotist who fails to understand how this and all similar fora work. Possibly you are an idiot too, though that is hard to judge without some content from you

    If you are this sensitive about people asking you to provide some details, I wonder how well you will cope with any questions or criticism of your new theorem. Perhaps you could ask mummy to sit next to after you post it here. (Sorry, was that patronizing? You asked for it.)

    Anyway, if you aren't willing to discuss it here, can you at least tell us where we can read about it. A mathematics or philosophy journal? Your own web site? A self-published book? What?

    Or ... why not just tell us?

    If Slumpnasty is for real, he should be able to state "The Fundamental Theorem of Logic".

    Hello my friends. I got a $35 copyright so Leibniz wouldn't steal my shit. In addition to being a master of deduction, I'm also a master of induction. Do to my poor reception in this forum, I've decided to make you wait, and you will undoubtedly become agitated, impatient, indignant, and skeptical.

    Yes, undoubtedly so...

    For the past year, perhaps more, I have had the idea of curiosity rammed this way and that around my viewing senses care of the Discover Channel. It's been great. And it got me thinking: if someone found something that perhaps slumpnasty has, and its revealed, the curisoity is gone, destroyed. Maybe slumpnasty is doing the right thing in shielding us from his find? I mean, if he tells us, the curisoity is gone. Now imagine if someone found a grand theory of everything, and destroyed our curiosity for all time, by revealing it's nature? Wow. That's pretty tough.

    Yes.
    Or perhaps he is just seriously deluded.
    Again, we won't know which one until we see what he's got

    Could I ask what you think the purpose of that is? Copyright will only protect the specific written form of your idea, not the idea itself. If someone else knows about your idea (if you ever lower yourself to reveal it to the benighted peasantry) and they choose to write thir own book on it, you can't stop them. It also doesn't prove that you invented the idea.

    Do to my poor reception in this forum
    What do you expect? Walk into a party and say, "I have done something amazing!" and you will no doubts have some guests gathering around. Refuse to say what you have done, walk around with a smug smile and expect people to buy you drinks? After a while people will avoid you while muttering "twat" under their breath.

    The longer you hold out, the more likely people are to say, "is that it?" and laugh at you.

    Still, that's your choice. You have chosen to prove you are an idiot rather than demonstrate you have had a good idea. Good luck with that.

    [wanders off muttering...]

    Or let out a half drunken cheer and immediately return to what they were doing... depending on what kind of party you're at i suppose.

    Well contrary to your expectations, I am pretty sure that most members here are happy to wait quite calmly for your great revelation, until Hell itself freezes over if need be. I know that I am.

    PS. Immodesty is a VERY unbecoming trait.

    PPS. I am still minded to lock this shite - have your fun with this wanker for another day, and 'twill be done

    Yes, I am both an imposter and an idiot. However, you all (indirectly) provided the answer I was searching for. For what my opinion is worth, "Sealeaf" has especially earned my respect. For the rest of you, I hope you all have productive and rewarding careers. Farewell.

    it is not order that i fear but the eccentricities of human. neither do i fear chaos because there is order even there but with multitude of varibles.

    I thought this thread was closed, but it seems that parag1973 decided to share his insight.

    Anyway, to summarize my Theorem: The only Proof, is that there is NO Proof. (This is a Paradox.)

    The Universe is both * In-finite * and * Un-de-finite *

    Since the Laws of Physics are Unbreakable, this means that the Universe in its Totality is Omnipotent.

    Derived from my Theorem, Omniscience is a Co-Requisite to Omnipotence.

    This means that the Universe in its Totality, is Conscious.

    "Universe" "God" "Everything" "Allah"

    Take your pick. These words all mean the same thing.
