Concept sharing-part 1

Filed under: Concept sharing,math concept sharing — Rob @ 6:05 pm

In it’s take on points, concept sharing looks at two or more copies of the same point, sharing a lower concept of place of places. I refer to points in the usual plane as places. That is, a plane exists where places can be moved to different places of places. This is a plane independent of the usual plane of places. The single place is removed so that two copies of the same point can no longer be one in the same point. This shows the existence of a place of places, since two copies of the same point could exist together.

An objection to this may be calling two copies of the same point, “two” but it is also true that a number is a concept too and so we can concept share with this as well. Then we create this plane concept sharing with two concepts at once, number and point. A number is an exact position and a point is an exact place. Since these are exact concepts we can concept share with both of them.

We may have copies of objects such as three copies of the same book, or also mathematical objects. Two copies of a point would have to be “two” points at the same location. However by “two” I could use the new level of a number of numbers. The number of numbers is “two” and not one.

Then I take away the numbers associated with the copies ( the number of copies labelled 1,2,3) and replace it with duplicate numbers, one for each copy. Then the number of numbers is the number of these duplicates. This “two” then refers to “two” points using the new level of numbering.

Then a further concept of negative distance is introduced, since if I move one copy of a point away from another I move away from 0 distance, but not positively. Then later, taking away some negative distance from this distance gets us closer to 0. Then it is natural to define this negative distance as the negative answer to the usual distance formula between two points, except done in this new plane. Dist=-sqrt((x2-x1)^2-(y2-y1)^2)). (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) are two fixed “placements”. that is locations of locations.

Concept sharing part 4

Filed under: Concept sharing,math concept sharing — Rob @ 6:00 pm

When I say m, c’ and 2′ are all parts, I mean we have the above equation for m,c,2′ and n that is m=c*sqrt(2′)^(n-1). Now this is for the numbers on the axis. But these numbers have a part to them which can be mobile as they are also made of parts. Then I can move the mobile parts all together and come to the conclusion above which seems to prove Fermat’s last theorem in a simpler way.
