Bad mathPosted: November 3, 2010
When I was young I would ask my father, pretty much on a weekly basis, what was “the highest number that scientists had discovered.” Each time my father would explain as patiently as possible that this was not exactly how things worked in the mathematical community.
But that didn’t stop me from wondering, even these days. I want. to. know. the smallest and biggest things in the universe.
I hate the concept of infinity.
