    Occam's razor - quantification os Entities

    I agree with "whatever gets results you keep and everything else gets thrown out with the bathwater". But I think that is the real philosophy of science just in other words, and it can be well defined. I think that "whatever gets results you keep" in combination with what we do is another...

    The nature of time. Which books to read?

    My mistake, I didn't understand what you meant in "singled out". Thank you for correcting me.

    The nature of time. Which books to read?

    I think that in relativity it is not (in contrast to Classical mechanics). But it has some unique characteristic: 1) The second law of thermodynamics. 2) Any object exist somewhere in any given time, but not the opposite. I mean there is a function from time to x,y,z because in any t an...

    Paradox lost

    I think that the paradox is when using the whole language. I see the problem with a). I think that for this case we can say that any description that is mathematically impossible under certain axioms is logically equivalent.

    Occam's razor - quantification os Entities

    I think that science advanced when we are able to describe more phenomenons in less entities. When we have a disprove we are take leave of a wrong theory, so we are able to think of new one that will describe the new experiment too, although this theory will probably be disproved too - the new...

    Paradox lost

    I think that any number that can be described as 'the least number which cannot be described in less than N syllables' can also be described in 18/20/100 syllables. Just in the way u did. If we have a very long number that adds syllables, like N=10^(10^10), we can describe it in less...

    Paradox lost

    I think it is the same number that cannot be described in 20 syllables :p

    Occam's razor - quantification os Entities

    I agree that symmetry in our theoretical entities is much more aesthetic. In my opinion, when we have symmetry, we prefer it because we can find a more basic theoretical explanation for it. Like in Maxwell's equations and an approximation to the Einstein field equations.

    Occam's razor - quantification os Entities

    Isn't it the Falsifiability of Karl Popper? I think Ockham's razor is: "entities should not be multiplied beyond necessity." Thank all of you for the answers. I know Occam's razor is secondary to the test itself, and isn't telling (or scientific theories at all) the absolute truth. But I...

    Occam's razor - quantification os Entities

    hey all, I have a few questions about Occam's razor. First what is considered to be a entity? Is it any basic law of nature? (that is not a result of other laws). A mathematical axiom/set of axioms that is needed for the theory (like Euclidean geometry for classical optics). Basic...

    Tensor in fractal dimensions

    How do I write and do calculation on those vectors? Can I describe a vector in a that belongs to a 2.5 dimension, in less then 3 coordinates? Do u know about cases which in the topological dimension don't much the space dimension? Thank u very much.

    Tensor in fractal dimensions

    wow a lot of views :rolleyes: amm if there is someone who don't know, but thinks that if there was this kind of a thing he would have know, please write that 2. Do u think such a thing can be exist or there r theoretical limitation about it? but ill wait in patience o:)

    Tensor in fractal dimensions

    Hey, first I want to say my English & Math aren't the best yet, so ill be glad to explain myself again if I'll need to :smile: I hope this question belongs to this section. I want to ask, is there today a way to do calculations about vectors above fractal dimension? (and I would like to...
