Math, like all man-made systems, presents a man-made challenge to succeed the systems that we set in place for ourselves. Whether or not we succeed that threshold is up to us, together or individually. How many times has a scientific discovery suggested that we re-write the textbooks?
There’s a person alive today who suggested that if we break all the rules and divide by zero then something remarkable is attainable. I do not recall his name at this time or you’d see his name here like many others on occasion.
One person I can reference on this topic is Neil deGrasse Tyson, and his video here. What happens when we choose to succeed math? One person who chose to do so was Isaac Newton. Michio Kaku went over this during this presentation.
In this notion of succeeding systems is a choice anyone has to develop their own systems and solve problems in the process. Your own system ought to reflect the progress that’s already been made, or else you’re stepping on trodden ground, yes? How can man-made systems be improved upon and succeeded entirely?
Part of Michio Kaku’s story in the video aforementioned is earning the attention of a physicist. In your endeavors, are you doing more than the systems you’re participating in require? If not, how else would you be spotted by others of influence and affluence?
Succeeding systems might include the ones you set yourself up for.
Mental expeditions in research and theory are one way to succeed systems. Possessing enough money to live off of the interest is another way to succeed systems. Doing more than your classwork requires is yet another way. So is running down to the field goal line during a training exercise, as Bo Eason observed.
This topic yields the opportunity to move yourself past the system of behavior that you know as familiar. Will you succeed the direction of your habits, towards the things that you choose to aspire towards?
Beware surface level jargon. Succeeding the mental landscape of perspective can be as simple as questioning an assumption. It includes group think.
