It is not difficult to imagine future perpetuity. However, imagining the past is somewhat problematic.

The only *things * I can grasp that have existed eternally are ideas, forms or concepts, all of which are inanimate. My intuition tells me that in order to process the same, a brain or mind is required, that is, an animate object.

Theoretical physicists will in one breath tell you there is no beginning and in the next breath will wax enthusiastically eloquent about our origins. Seems a futile exercise to me if one can never reach the beginning (first cause).

Can an animate (self-sustaining) object have existed eternally? My intuition tells me yes, but since I can’t be certain because I cannot fathom (understand) how this would be possible, the next question would be: Could an animate being have been caused by a void universe in which only ideas and forms exist?

I start my reasoning as follows:

1. In the beginning, there were only inanimate ideas and forms.

2. And then? …

This argument supposes there was a beginning. I am inclined to this pattern of thinking because I am unable to comprehend an infinite number of events in the past with no starting event.

I somehow doubt that I shall ever know the answers to these questions.

If only I had a dollar for each worthless mathematics dissertation, then I would be a multi-millionaire.

Whatever I imagine is real, because whatever I imagine, is well-defined.

The most destructive event after Georg Cantor’s set theory was introduced, was the adoption of limits in calculus. The limit concept has no place in calculus. Newton’s and Leibniz’s wrong methods were fueled by foolish and incompetent academics. I do not for one moment believe that either would have approved of how the calculus developed.

If it were possible to resurrect Newton and Leibniz, then have them compare the standard and New Calculus, I have no doubt they would support the New Calculus development.

For more than three centuries, mathematicians have been using flawed or ill-defined concepts in the development of calculus. As a result, its development peaked in the middle of the 19th century and became so complex, that very little has been realized since then. There is currently a hefty price to pay in terms of calculus education: it has become too difficult to master in any reasonable period of time and would be students shun its study.

A price to pay for the stupidity, incompetence and lethargy of modern era mathematicians.

When others do not like your ideas, they would just as soon silence you by any means possible. At risk of sounding paranoid, it seems that every move I make is being carefully scrutinized and obstructed. However, I am completely rational and realize there are many reasons for seemingly foregone conclusions. Nothing makes truth more established than those forces desperately trying to suppress and destroy.

The New Calculus is the first rigorous formulation of calculus in human history. I am not surprised academics hate it. It exposes their stupidity and general lack of ability over the past 300 years. You can silence an individual, but you can never silence an idea, because** ideas exist independently of the human mind**. Past, present and future ideas have always existed; only those who chance to think of them are flash moments in the history of time.

A mathematician is like an artist: the objects arising from concepts in a mathematician’s mind, are only as appealing as they are well-defined.
