Begin with infinity

Guys, we live on a more or less round lump of matter we call Earth. We know there are a few more such round lumps, we give them names too, but we have no idea how big the cosmos is entire, or how long it may have lasted.

We are as grasshoppers new in a garden. Our humanity can hop a few places, but that would be about it. Still, we don’t get to sit all day to think what we might not know. It would be boring.

Language is quite a big thing, too, and even if we get to be real good at it, we don’t get to know all and everything. Nobody does.

Nobody could give the exact number of irregular verbs. Some people would use 60, and some about 80 of those, and some people would change their minds.

Even myself, I can’t tell what I would say about something I just never knew, or about something I know, but in a new circumstance.

We can use the lemniscate, ∞, to symbolize verbs.

Language and math are completely different. “Computer language” is a moniker for math codes. The codes may use letters of alphabets, but as figures that have values ascribed. Objectively, there’s no way to tell that letter A or B is value 100 or 1000. This is what “alpha-numeric” means. The follow-up here is not about computers. It is about natural language strictly.

Our gumption set

We think what we know. More→
