Wow, understanding the concepts of half a differential equations course online

completely integrated five years of physics concepts

along with all my self-study of calculus and manifolds.

Yet still I march on.

that I have to do math problems to understand it,

doesn't realize that doing unsolvable problems still leaves me confused.

And I'm back to where I was before I did the problems (okay not really),

but there is nothing wrong with note taking, watching, listening, and reading math without problems.

THere is nothing wrong with reading, writing, listening, and watching math without problems.

Whatever is most left out of a class is what the equilibrium of ignorance will revert back to.

So choose what to leave out.

The self-learner and the student both realize that "I" have learned nothing over and over again.

Information is just a tool for recognizing qualities,

and will forever be preserved in its innocence/stupidity.

If I can't make something into logical sense via concepts, then I make it spacially sensical by knowing certain aspects of a class have repeated.

E.g. in my brain I label a verse with tabs pertaining to a previous line of thought.

E.g. like playing target practice.

210 college credits...

5 years of understanding physics concepts...

and 9 months of math problems...

makes me still freshman.

Every day in math I face the halting problem:

whether I can finish a proof,

or whether I will go on trying to prove forever.

At any given point

all problems become an undecidable problem.

Time for a break.

What’s the biggest number

I inquire aloud

And the scholars fidget.

Is it not infinity

I say

Because it’s endless?

And the mathematicians squirm.

Infinity isn’t a number

They say, besides,

There is bigger.

They teach and I learn

Of what lies higher

Than what’s supposedly highest

Alephs and ordinals and omegas

Endless endless unknowns

That just keep coming

Each swallows whole the infinity before it

Perhaps they could use a digestive

(Or two, or three, or infinite).

I don’t quite comprehend

But it’s alright

I know even when they don’t

Whatever numbers or symbols or axioms

The academics present

However high the ceiling rises

However incomprehensible

I know

I’ll love you more than that.

it happened and my heart quickened

and I want you to feel the pain like I did

but for the reasons

I felt it

I wanted to say sorry

but I only did what was set to be done

what was to be proven

I didn't know what I set to do

I had no intention of proof

no bar to high jump over

at one point pole vault

apathetic occupation when it didn't belong

but it stands to no more reason

what was to be shown

is what had to be done

QED

life is an equation.

not a simple y = mx + b curve

rather one with countless variables

leading to one solution with each combination

think about it.

what I call variables, philosophers would call free will

and albeit a select number of variables are within our control

hundreds of others are not

if you find yourself stuck

with a conclusion you deem incorrect

or a development you know can't be the answer

always remember that your input controls the output

change the variables within your control
