  1. "Next" proposal...

      Some more, not refined though.

      There's a typo, argh. "unlikely that... should not" should not have the "not" haha.

  3. Some more visual prototypes...
  4. There's supposed to be a scene where √2 gives 4 the √ so 4 can disguise themselves as 2. Anyway, the point about adding aleph-zero but not getting anywhere, is supposed to be part of an actual explanation of the topic, like π asks why adding aleph-zero doesn't do anything, and so on. The section numbers would be well-ordered in the complete document and the choice idea is a nod to Cohen's pluralism: the choices you make take you to ZFC, or ZFC+, or constructivist or intuitionistic or whatever set theory, and then there would be explanations of those subjects, and so on. As for Apollyon, well that IS what the antiset is. In modal logic, the antiset function would define possibility from antipossibility, giving us a perverted modal order. This would form the image of a negative eternity, but then inside actual people, the disproof of the Axiom of Destruction is part of the metaproof of the axioms of transconstruction. So eventually the story would discuss the concept of transfinality, which is the subject of the fourth axiom of my system and the one required for the functional preimage of the deontic apex of transfinality, which has the power to "defeat" Apollyon by invoking absolute infinity in Cantor's religious sense (he also had a mistaken, I think, alternative absolute model that comes down to the antiset image, so the moral of the story is that we have to be careful about our concept of infinity in general, since the divine nature expresses this form of reality, but so does the ultimate enemy...). EDIT: not all of the numbers who are characters will be totally important for "numerical" reasons. Instead, some just illustrate Brouwer's notion of freely chosen digitalization. EDIT 2: and btw you're right, there are supposed to be bonus sections 4: also I needed a number with √ so they can use it as a bow when they shoot Knuth arrows. I swear the actual notation will be explained too like they're on top of the mountain and they are running out of time so they fire the arrow at 2 that makes the formula for the Continuum, so they teleport to the Temple of the Continuum.
  5. I'm not sure whether to try to present my model of transfinite arithmetic as a strict essay, or something more like Flatland (or GEB or the surreal-numbers essay set on a magical island, or what!). If I go with the latter, it'll go something like this:
  6. Base: an SEP article "Large Cardinals and Determinacy," my own e-doodling, and a classic "metagalactic" scifi artpiece.

  7. All my fixation on this topic has paid off, at least I have clever ideas about it in particular and not just a collage of general impressionistics...

  8. Umm Brandon himself isn't settled on how the process works and in a universe where you can have super-permanent tattoos because of spiritual ideals I daresay using objects like Dawnshards to power a soul-sending could "heal" a whole body into existence on the other end, from the available matter, maybe. No crazier than sucking the color out of things to make cloth come to life or ingesting metals in order to be able to move entire planets around, is it?
  9. Spren is a catch-all term, and we know there are equivalents of spren that were formerly people (e.g. the Fused). So actually my idea is now even worse: not only were humans the first Voidbringers, what if they were the first Fused? (Not "officially," but I mean what if humans did the same kind of thing in the beginning?)
  10. The aleph-spheres...

      OK there's quite a few typos. The main one is at the formula for the finite numbers. It should read

      n < omega; n > zero

      Something I found was that in surreal arithmetic, there are numbers such as "omega minus one." These can fit to the reduction of the omega-metaindex, though anomalously: also, though, the relatively finite numbers can then be defined as the examples of the things like 1 and 2 and so on, anomalously, in the surrealm. In other words, relative 1 is larger than all actual finite numbers and less than omega, in this sense.

      However, there also seem to be an infinite number of kinds of zero in the system. Assume any aleph with any metaindex, and assume its glyphdex is 0. If its glyphdex is 0, we will stipulate that all higher indices are 0. At any rate, we can imagine metaindexed alephs all of whose first-order indices are zero. By the principle of comparison, a zero-aleph with more indices is larger than one with less, so we would get the peculiar result that there are infinite relative-zero numbers in a sequence whereby each is larger than the predecessor. In other words, not only would there be infinite number of kinds of zeros, but there would be infinitely larger and larger forms of zero!

  11. That's what I'd like to know. Maybe there were stages where humans became spren first.
  12. Normally I wouldn't post a reply to my own post but I have to acknowledge something, namely a lot of the functions that I thought I discovered, are already known. Hypertowers seem to be Veblen functions, for example. Nevertheless, my intuition about the epsilon numbers and the hyperoperation sequence is therefore much more sound than I thought.
  13. Idk what you mean by no sense. You can clearly visualize souls being sent into matter to animate it. The visual might be false but it is not meaningless.
