Re: Post of the year
I started getting involved around 1981. Though I didn't start posting on-line, in CompuServe, until circa 1987. I have seen a lot happen over the years.

Re: Thirded (again)!!!
No, not exhausted. I do far too often fall far too short. For which I do apologize in realization of how much I continue to fail everybody.

For example, in the post in question, I forgot to mention the problem of when our imagination is completely and utterly incapable of dealing with the necessary ideas.

How well are are our imaginations in dealing with multiple dimensions? I would assume that most of us are able to handle two dimensions, while many, to be honest, in handling three dimensions find themselves severely tasked. So how well are they then able to handle imagining four dimensions? Practically none of them are able to deal with that! Let alone all the multiple more dimensions beyond that! Which mathematics enables us to navigate with ease.

Our imaginations are severely limited. Mathematics enables us to far exceed our imaginations.
