true math=physical experience
Debate Rounds (5)
Many people know that 10*1,000,000 = 10,000,000. Yet, there is no physical experience. This is completely in the abstract. Let's say if this was sheets of paper. A huge box contains a million pieces of paper and there are ten boxes. Nobody is going to count a box with a million sheets of paper, then multiply by ten, and then count all ten boxes each with a million pieces of paper. Just to verify that 10*1,000,000 really is 10,000,000.
The physical experience isn't there. Yet, we all know that ten million is the correct answer.
any step beyond 9 is a step into infinity
how do you know what a box is..
Yet, once the first few numbers are understood via the five senses, a person can use his or head mind to understand new numbers.
true math=physical experience is the resolution. A person never physically experiences calculus. You will never physically experience f(x) = 3x^4 + 10x^3 + 12x^2. Find the derivative of f(x).
Yet, this is what a beginner's calculus class looks like. This is math. Now imagine an advanced calculus problem. Pro has yet to clarify what the difference between math and true math is.

Reasons for voting decision: lol. Pro never proved that doing math was a "physical" experience. Con actually showed why it should be considered an abstract experience rather than a physical one. And vi_spex was... vi_spex...
