I didn't have any Sunday reflection picked out for today, but then Joselle Kehoe posted something that makes for a good one:
It's about Gregory Chaitin reflecting on Ramanujan, Cantor, Euler, and mathematics as a seductress!
a couple of provocative lines:
"I believe mathematics is based only on emotion and inspiration and it’s totally irrational and we don’t know where it comes from especially in cases where it’s an obsession."and from Joselle:
"...maybe the right way to think about the universe is that the universe is a computation – computing its future state from its current state. One can think of everything as a computation – understanding, the physical universe, DNA, as well as current technology."
