    How Is Chess Meaningful in the sense of Mathematics?

    It isn't.

    Sure it's all relative.

    But you tell me, how this even matters?

    If I give you the answer would you become instantly a better chess player? No you wouldn't.

    Maybe over time but not right away.

    Go train. Get better.

    I don't compare Go to captcha. But I point out that the human mind has such hard coded abilities (like image recognition) in which it is still better than computers. Go is like a mosaic picture and to make sense of it on larger boards where simple tree search gets too costly for computers may be easier for humans.

    You're right, of course. It's still the only explanation I've ever been able to use to get anyone who's not a mathematician or physicist to understand the differences between infinities.

    One reason I like this site as opposed to sites based on my other hobbies - you don't see discussions about the different kinds of infinities much on the woodworking sites, or the combinatorial stuff like "how many rectangles on a chess board" - just doesn't seem to come up for some reason. (P.S. I was a Math and Physics Major)
