"Binary numbers were first described in by Pingala in 100 BC. Binary Code was introduced by the German mathematician and philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz during the 17th century: convert logic’s verbal statements into a pure mathematical one. After his ideas were ignored, he came across a classic Chinese text called ‘I Ching’ or ‘Book of Changes’, which binary code. The book confirmed his theory that life could be simplified or reduced down to a series of straightforward propositions."
2 mathematicians have found a bridge across the finite-infinite divide, helping at the same time to map this strange boundary. The boundary does not pass between some huge finite number & the next, infinitely large one. Rather, it separates 2 kinds of mathematical statements: “finitistic” ones, which can be proved without invoking the concept of infinity, & “infinitistic” ones, which rest on the assumption—not evident in nature—that infinite objects exist.
Love, love, love. Fun math idea for all levels. Could also make a counting variation for preschoolers/early kindergarten (put 'x' number of beans or pony beads into envelope and "deliver" it to the correct basket).
Brain. The brain is an electrochemical machine that processes through binary code - zeroes and ones that create patterns of experiences and realities. Reality is a consciousness program (hologram, simulation, illusion, dream) created by digital codes. Numbers, numeric codes, define our existence and experiences. Human DNA, our genetic memory, triggers (remembers) by digital codes at specific times and frequencies as we experience.
Nicky Broekhuysen, whose pieces can take up to two months to make, are all meticulously hand-stamped in the binary numbers 1 and 0, creating images which are disorganized and chaotic in detail, but cohesive when viewed in greater distance.
