I want to understand all of mathematics, how to make sense of the big picture, and how the various areas, concepts and truths of math unfold.

In 2017, I wrote a Proposal: A Research Program for the Big Picture in Mathematics for a European Philosophy of Science Association fellowship to study at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy. I did not win. Now I am working further.

  • Main question: How to build math intuition?




  • Sociological problem: Voevodsky's program is driven by limitations on proof checkers
  • Penrose's picture of the division into three. Video: "Professor Dr. Sir Roger Penrose on new clues to the basics of conscious mentality" 53:13.
  • Gatekeeping
  • Mathematics Subject Classification revision from 2010 to 2020, no changes foreseen in the 63 areas of 2 digit classification.

  • Analyze the generating function for the logistic map and its bifurcation diagram.

Tools for solving math are all based on finite thinking (except for continuity arguments, etc.) not using the Axiom of Infinity. But the objects of study in mathematics are all essentially infinite - "general" - for example there are infinitely many integers, there are infinitely many values a variable may take, there are infinitely many solutions to the Pythagorean theorem, etc. Generally, mathematical statements (with a free variable) apply to infinitely many (non finite, nonrestricted) situations. That is why infinitary disjunctions are allowed (infinitely many things) but only finitary conjunctions (finite combinations). By analogy, this is how the conscious mind rules the unconscious mind, or how the small ordering orders the large ordering in a visualization.
