"Desi...Because they have no such methodology.<br /><br />"Design" itself is a process of evolution. E.g., the "ten thousand things" Edison discovered that did not work, and the way we've seen cars, telephones, and everything else evolve in our lifetimes. Both Paley's pocket watch and the trees in the forest evolved. Watches just evolve faster because although there are fewer of us doing design, we have better forms of memory than DNA to pass on both success and failure information to subsequent generations, as well as meta-information about the design process.<br /><br />We don't create new things, especially not laws of nature, we discover them and apply them. There is no valid analogy between human design work and universe-creation. The analogy is to biological evolution.<br /><br />As a design engineer of 35 years experience, I doubt that a single so-called "Intelligent Design Theorist" has ever been part of a successful design effort, or actually studied the history of design. If they had, they would know that it is a long history of trial and error. Based on archeological evidence, it took modern humans over 100,000 years to design the wheel and axle.<br /><br />Once you have found a successful design, you can apply it to other uses: wheels to capstans, pulleys, gears, etc., up to and including computer hard drives. After a while, there so many designs that some people think it is a magical process.<br /><br />Go ahead, Design Theorists, design something new (that works). Show me the magic.

People can honestly disagree about what is "Easier to teach", but following this advice has completely cleared up things about Calculus that bothered me. <br /><br />And to be honest, other than his (apparently) insistence that higher derivative notation be fixed; it's not entirely original. JB happens to be a computer programmer as well. People that spend all their time on chalkboards and on paper or in LaTeX can work around bad notation. Computers can't really do this.<br /><br />This is because it's very possible to have correct answers for all the inputs that they get applied to, for hundreds of years; because by definition, you use tools where they work, and obey a rule to not uses it in the situations where the notation has broken down. <br /><br />In what he is doing, he has effectively discovered Auto-differentiation; which is the technique used for Deep Learning in Artificial Intelligence. I ran into Johnathan Bartlett's paper when I was trying to make sense of Auto-differentiation. In a DeepLearning model, you have the notion of taking a general program with thousands of inputs and differentiating it. You calculate f(x0,x1,x2,...) for a really huge function that could have hundreds of thousands of parameters; because you will use the first derivative of it to do backpropagation. In this situation if you DO NOT fix the damned notation, then in your CODE you have to fill it with exceptional cases to get the correct answer in spite of an issue with the notation. Welcome to the world of programming.<br /><br />I would say that if you try to implement multi-variable calculus in a raw programming language (ie: Python without libraries), that you will start to understand the perspective of Finitism to some degree. In code, when the (algebraic) pattern breaks; you really need to think hard about whether putting in special case code to handle things like "this value is really small/large" is going to eventually break a pattern that it needs to match.<br /><br />We are beginning to see a clash of worlds from computer graphics programmers ... who discover Geometric Algebra, when they start to regard all the bizzare workarounds in Gibbs Vector Algebra as bugs. <br /><br />Just because something works, doesn't mean that it's holy and unchallengeable. All day long, I deal with code that works perfectly over a wide range of requirements for many years; and a customer needs to apply it to a new context. In these cases, you realize that some inconveniences that you tolerated are actually design flaws; or even bugs when scope of it is expanded.<br /><br />The comments about "creationists can't do calculus" is idiotic by the way. Newton himself was a religious person that calculated the end of the world from the bible, dabbled in alchemy, and other kinds of crackpot pseudo-science. It's completely irrelevant to what he managed to get right. <br /><br />I haven't read anything else from Johnathan Bartlett, but his paper about higher derivative fixes is quite interesting. And his Calculus book actually is a really great book on the subject. The bits in it that are heretical are out of necessity. But almost all math books written by people who have actual experience writing large code bases, in computer graphics especially, have something in common: they understand the value of making things as algebraic as possible, so that the code does the right thing without a human being second-guessing it.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Rob Fieldinghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/17991209454728314236noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-20067416.post-26868930529969469692020-12-09T14:41:38.334-05:002020-12-09T14:41:38.334-05:00Dewdney's claims about cell phone calls were d...Dewdney's claims about cell phone calls were definitively debunked.

I know personally the people who persecuted that girl and they are communists and anti-Christians. I have so much proof that very soon I will be releasing proof that will demonstrate everything I claimed. I feel sorry for you that they are about to ban math because it is too hard for some groups. You could always get a job working at McDonalds! Good luck and you will soon read all about what I drop! P.S death prose is not a word so you might wand to finish grade two!hollysevenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12485554427040700371noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-20067416.post-86390395170982784192020-08-19T18:27:39.812-04:002020-08-19T18:27:39.812-04:00Holly:

Because, judging from your deathless prose, you haven't learned much after grade 7.<br /><br />I've worked at a Canadian university for 30 years, and oddly enough, I don't know a single "communist" here. I do know, however, a lot of Christian professors. There's even an endowed lecture series aimed at converting people to the Christian faith.Jeffrey Shallithttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12763971505497961430noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-20067416.post-29029080527736463152020-08-19T18:24:25.045-04:002020-08-19T18:24:25.045-04:00Alastair:
