2 + 2 = 5

  • #1
    Mathematics is a social construct. it is a social construct because we invented it. Collectively. Now you might be thinking to yourself "Well no mathematics is based on perception" but your percepyion conforms to the mathematical structures you were made to believe. In reality if you were raised to believe that 2 + 2 = 5 you would have that constructed into your perceptions. You would see that if you add two to two you get five, and that is because Truth and Logic are Subjective. Therefore you base your logic on mathematics, but your mathematics on perception, and your perception on logic, but it is a circle leading to nowhere. So if 2 + 2 = 4 then it also equals 5... so there you hav it.

    Pashak, back in the offtopic again? Need more attention?

    you are fir dominance and control so you try to undermine my point. I'm saying that there are different truth at different levels, but explanations or underlying support truth must be supported by even lesser truths, so there is no objective or absolute point in which all other truths can evolve as a consequence

    Of course for you the truth can be "2+2 =5" and it is also a fact that we don't know if 2+2 = 5. It is also a fact that we don't know if 2+2 =5 even exists, or an actual thing. However we go off what is in our society, and what our brains can comprehend. Going into the philosophical argument that anything can be right or wrong, or that there can be different truths for individuals at different levels, is irrelevant.

     

    You're going in a loop and you'll never reach an objective answer.

     

    2+2 = 7. prove my truth is wrong. It's just a stupid argument.

    isn't everything seen as a stupid argument 10 years from now? 20 years from now?

    I don't think superman is done with high school math yet

  • #16

    um... what does my 2 comments say about the fact that i "haven't finished high school math yet"

    i finished high school math a year ago.

  • #17

    Oh really?

  • #18

    i can't prove it to you, but yeah, i did.

  • #19

    You can actually, although any pre calculus problems I give you, you will just google the answer

    So Malcom X's argument for promotion of Black human rights was stupid? His argument was stupid for saying blacks and whites are equal?

     

    Good one
