Talking Points

  • Any audio is better than no audio?
  • Mathematics = Logic
  • ZFC Axioms show logical structure
  • Peano Axioms illustrating this point
  • Euclid's Axioms showing how just because something is logical doesn't mean that has anything to do with reality
  • x86 Instruction set showing the axiomatic basis of programming
  • Asymmetric Literacy in Chinese languages.
  • NOTE: This section is slightly incorrect in that there is a separate written form for Cantonese as well, but I hope that the main idea is still intelligible.
