Have the laws of science always been constant? How do we know they weren't different eons ago?

yes, just as the constants in mercury are different than the constants working with water. When the magnetic fields compress and contract the aether many "constants" change

>He had an uncommon method of giving lectures: he entered the lecture hall with an assistant and a docent. The docent then began reading the proper passages from Riesz's handbook and the assistant wrote the appropriate equations on the blackboard—while Riesz himself stood aside, nodding occasionally.

Those are CS books i have found after doing research to start learning, as a beginner with no background it seems that the best one to start is "Computer Science illuminated", to learn the principles, and also watch YT videos or internet sites to learn the basics, while also studying math, which i will do anyway at uni bc i'm starting physics.

I have very basic C++ knowledge from high school: variables types(int,float,char,string etc), for,while,do while, switch case, putting ";" at the end of lines, cin>>, cout<<.
But that's programming not really CS.

I can share the PDFs if ur interested.

Do you think this is good way to start?

how fucking stupid is this? What can I do with all these numbers? Are you just asking for a fucking auto-calculator? You can just put those things in excel and fucking do whatever you need to them and solve it in "I'm not a lazy fuck" time. Which is better than polynomial.

The cost of computation only increases by a bounded limit of sqrt(2) no matter what you want to put in the cycle, so why do I care? There is already a minimal computational cost proof that any extra comparison set added to an existing algorithm simply increases the total computation size of sqrt(2)*n.

sqrt(2)*n - 1 = 0
sqrt(2)*n = 1
n = 1/sqrt(2)

It is the 'n' part is essentially am I priority signal (1) or optimal build pivot point signal (sqrt(2))

Think of it like computational tracing. The only worthwhile or meaningful data that can be outputted by a program is essentially with a forward-looking memory pointer that essentially goes:

1. Have a bag and a list of things
2. Grab thing from list and check if thing can fit in bag
3. Check if could I grab one more of the same thing without going over capacity and if not create a shadow copy of the summation/inventory so far that is less that thing to also include as 'must check after priority thread terminates'
4. Add the thing if there is anything to add
5. Rank the leading three bags and throw away other bags as insufficient to requirement for analytical purposes
6. Repeat this process for however N-many shadow bags exist (turning this into a constant size check limited by remaining potential candidates)

What am I missing, if anything?

>Kronecker was not so fond of Cantor.

>These criticisms, among others2, stung Cantor deeply, leading to several episodes of depression. It sucked the joy of math out of him for several years. For a while, he turned to, of all things, the Shakespeare authorship question, on which he wrote a couple of pamphlets.

>He did eventually return to math, though his later work was not as transformative as his earlier work. Cantor eventually retired in 1913, and lived in poverty due to World War I. He died in 1918 at the age of 72.

Sorry for quoting a garbage text, but you'll catch the drift i suppose.

Before I went to Occupy, I felt ideological solidarity with anti-fascists. Not long after I started going to Occupy, I was watching some documentary. Maybe it was about Mussolini or Operation Gladio or something. They were interviewing some Italian guy and they were asking him why he likes fascism. He said something, in slight exasperation, like, "I'm for whatever works." Then I thought about how retarded were the committees at Occupy, and I switched to fascism right then. That was one of the best things to come out of Occupy for me. It got me to feel ideological opposition to the Democrats, whose agents at Occupy rubbed my VERY wrongly, and also it got me to like fascism. Really, autocratic monarchy is what I like but that's just fascism with a king instead of a dictator.
