Is it because the language is foreign to you?
The specious witterings of the clueless is not a 'language', Paul - but it is foreign to me, as I strive to understand the world, not obfuscate it, and I also work to make sure that I am clear and concise because my ideas aren't so poorly conceived that I need to hide them behind nonsensical verbiage.

I've read this entire thread, and I'm an artist, so I understand colour theory, and I'm a snooker fan.

I have no idea what the point of this thread is, or what the OP is trying to say...

Me too.

I've tried to elucidate what the OP is trying to say; it seems to amount to the fact that developments are going on in the universe, and they are driven by different factors at different times.

I have no idea what that has to do with colours or mathematics.

I'm pretty sure Paul's point is that color theory is an evolved form of mathematics, but only red, blue, and yellow.

I'm a music industry professional who has incidentally written hundreds of thousands of words over the years on wave mechanics and the physics of sound, colour and light.

Also incidentally, in my early years working as a club entertainer, I did two years as compere at Potters, a snooker club owned by John Virgo, and frequented by quite a few professional players, and had a free table whenever I wanted one and used it. I've played a lot of snooker, in other words.

Without a baseline, a start point everything can be seen as a kaleidoscope that makes no sense.
What type of perspective could be used for the baseline. A train of thought.
Really want to get the colours into a reasoned scientific grounded logical order.

You're a few years too late. The eminent color scientist, Roy G. Biv (deceased) put color order on a firm footing long before you were born. His initials are immortalized in the RGB color scheme currently used in computer graphics. Others have come along since then, such as Chu-Ming Yong-Kim (CMYK) and Herbert Stanton Brown (HSB). You can look it up.[/quote]

And that's just for colour on macroscopic scales. Wait till he hears about Quantum Chromodynamics...[/quote]

An artist.

Given the ability to hear the universe close up and also from a naturalist s perspective, what would that sound be reminiscent of here on the Earth?

Because I propose three types of EVOLUTION/SELECTION.
It seems perfectly rational to explore and code each chapter with a primary colour.
So to mathematics. If a picture paints a thousand words.
How many words can the three primary colours paint if the evolution link is made?

Firstly, no you don't propose anything of the sort because you don't understand the concept of selection, nor of evolution.

Secondly, even if you did understand them, colour coding them just makes it look like you're doing some form of synesthesia numerology. There is quite literally nothing rational about it. Chevrons before, colour coding now - it's worse than nonsensical Paul. It's a clown show basically.


[quote="pfrankinstein";p="2778585"]So to mathematics. If a picture paints a thousand words. [/quote]

So to mathematics? A picture paints a thousand words, and a thread about mathematics that contains no mathematics also paints a thousand word picture, namely a study of a poster who is perfectly incompetent at mathematics.

You could, of course, prove me wrong by employing some mathematics - but we all know that's not going to happen. :lol:

Mathematics is the language of science, but you unfortunately can't even manage the language of English.

An attempt to translate this question into connected/linked, evolutionary, 3 colour trees (with a specific rule for evolution) was made earlier in the topic.

In fact, we finally get to what Paul means by 'mathematics'. It's paint-by-numbers cosmology. I wonder what he'd make of a Feynman diagram...

For so long now there has been an Irrational lip service paid to one word.

You know what I mean, "this evolves "that evolves... Yet in strict scientific terms true EVOLUTION is Darwinian biological EVOLUTION.

Suppose I told you that the process of EVOLUTION began with the big bang.

Fact is if you contend the strict understanding of the subject then the Darwinian evolution process is brand new without any roots to the inorganic past.

Stood back a ways I'd probably shrink the sample by moving its start to our fully evolved solar system.

With a sharp pencil I'd separate out the three relevant types of environment and calculate their areaS.

Is their graduation in area. Any discernable pattern?
