As with all sciences. There is always more to learn. When I was a chemist in a pulp mill, we measured by-products by many means, including a gas chromatograph, but nobody ever really knew what complex organics were being produced in the main processes or were combusted in the Kraft recovery boiler.

The mill made lots of stinky sulfides that were emitted in the stack-smoke and in venting from vessels, but it was our job to identify them and help minimize them. If you think hydrogen sulfide is stinky, you should should sample some other sulfides. Not fun.

what do the dots represent? :D

 Recognitions: Gold Member BTW, if you think hydrogen sulfide stinks bad, you should smell concentrated methyl mercaptan (used as an odorant in LPG applications) and then you should smell dimethyl sulfide or dimethyld disulfide or their even stinkier cousins. Badly-controlled pulp mills can be smelled many, many miles away.

Yup, I didn't want to confine mathematics to just a box. So I left the box open with dots to go on to infinity.

So is the stuff that is "waiting to be discovered" countably infinite or not? I guess not since you represented it as a continuous area.... ;)
