Re: Your number is, in fact, not bigger!

I think one of us lost the other. I'll just dumb mine down and hope you'll do the same for me. My number is not a limit any h(x), I'm using h(x) to generate something in the form x n + x m +...+1. And I am then using that as the power of my A function. The arrows I'm using are to make sure n and m a...

Re: Your number is, in fact, not bigger!

Been a couple months since I was referred here, but I think I have finally found something worth while. I'll start by defining A(f(x), x, n). That is the nth fixed position of the function f(x) on x. For example, A(1+x,x,0) = ω. Okay, so what? That's not special, we've got at least a few functions t...

Re: My number is bigger!

I've seen that, I guess I just didn't want to pull a comic 1254 for the parts that have been talked about here. My next submission will be there.

Re: My number is bigger!

In my post, I described Zeta1 as the limit of the series Zeta0+1, epsilonzeta_0+1.
Amida wrote:Zeta1 = epsilonepsilon_...epsilon_(zeta_0+1).

And all my following ordinals follow the same pattern. Either I'm missing the point, or people assumed I copied exactly.

Re: My number is bigger!

I really like how everyone here is posting and helping me grow my understanding of mathematics. So now, I'm gonna try to define something even better. With the result that, once you get recursive enough, it doesn't matter what you're doing or where do you start (e.g. no difference from starting with...

Re: My number is bigger!

Aren't ordinals the different levels infinity? And wasn't the infinite banned? The Turing Machine stuff you described being unsure if it even halts, sounds like the Busy Beavers, or at least non-computable. Which again, wasn't that banned at the beginning? Am I misunderstanding something or did I mi...

Re: My number is bigger!

It's been nearly two years since I posted my first little thing. I haven't followed this thread much since then either. But what I have done is every few months I'd try to come up with something new on my own that I haven't posted. In my last post I defined up to chained arrow operations on the func...

hard drive question

I was moving my computer around and it took a good bump at one point. Now it just has a message about inserting a boot media whenever I turn it on. I don't know if the hard drive got damaged or just the connectors. How likely is it that the hard drive is done for and if I tried to plug it into anoth...

Re: 1190: "Time"

If only to break away from just simply lurking for a while, I will weigh in on the newpix vs newpic. I would go with the singular being newpic.

Re: My number is bigger!

As a new guy to this, I'm just gonna try something I came up with and see where it lands me in all this. To start off, I'm going to define some operations with functions. It starts off simple with f 2 (x) = f(f(x)) along with f 3 (x) = f(f(f(x))) and so on. Next I will define 2 f(x) to be equal to f...
