How do Platonists deal with irrational numbers?

How do Platonists deal with irrational numbers? If math is the harmonious language of the universe like they claim shouldn't things like pi be expressible by a whole number? Seems pretty discordant. Almost like humans made it up and there's nothing intrinsically enumerable about anything in the universe. If the universe has a "coding" it certainly isn't digital.

    then whatever the frick a human thinks it should be like shouldn't really supercede what math is actually like, i think, im not a platonist, but i'd figure it'd go a bit along those lines, yes i know in ancient times they killed a guy for discovering irrationals or something like that, but id say that was them imposing their standards on what math should be instead f them letting math be math(or in other words, letting it be what it itself already is), ya know?

            measurement is inherently irrational for they just picked shit arbitrary.
            the foundation was control by comparin two things and deciding one of those should be the Base
            picking a pi wouldn't make it less rational than picking an apple tgen expressing them in terms of 1

            Because properties of integers don't change across bases. An integer is still an integer. Irrational is still an irrational.

            Keeping counts using irrational bases does not suddenly make the irrational base an integer just because you are counting multiples of it

            Actually I take this back. It's all an epistimological question of "what is an integer"... If we define an integer as "any number that can be written without fractional components" them yes, base pi makes pi an integer. If we define an integer of "multiples of whole singles", eg counting fingers, then 1 in base pi is still irrational.

            I guess the former definition is more accepted, so I concede that in base pi, pi is an integer

            No, just do it if its so easy, no need to "post exactly how" without actually doing it when counting should be the simplest task your numbers system is capable of accomplishing since it is how base systems are defined.

            If you have "explained" it, follow your directions and count from 1 to 10 or count down from 10 to 10 in exactly pi steps.

            They might be human made, but they are not arbitrary since bases are defined as the radix of a number system which are the number of unique symbols used to count which have to be whole since a unique symbol is by definition a whole unit.

            I know you are talking out of your ass and you can't actually count from 1 to 10 in pi steps despite claiming you have explained exactly how even though that explanation doesn't actually lead to any coherent count using pi steps from 1 to 10.

            That we define everything FROM the 1, into Phi/Pi/i/whatever, but as I posted above...it is possible to view this from the opposite direction, BASE-PI.

            Your "Arith-Metic" nonsense is irrelevent, there is a reason Wildberger and I worked on it, it breaks down if you run Infinity through it (and we both said this has nothing to do with Applied, this was a Pure Maths definitional alteration.)

            I can't define "incommensurable magnitude" no matter what, that's the point. Even if I used math or any of it's fancy coping mechanism/ "numbers" it still doesn't make it definable, let alone "number". Babbling "maths" over it doesn't help either (because it's not definable in the first place). It gives me another fancy word to call something I don't even know exists.
            And yes they are. Math is the language of numbers, I understand it's been bastardized by foreign stooges over the years but so has every other language. It doesn't change the original meaning of it no matter how many times you parrot the learned psychosis taught to you by mulatto morons.

            Pythagoras killed the man who discovered irrational numbers.

            He killed him for calling them "number" in the first place and being an insufferable c**t who parroted the misconstrued "discovery" he had made to the public like a charlatan. As a result we now have people like

            >No because it's infinitely reducible to a finer boundary
            This, because you CAN construct it, even internally (though thats more indepth).

            This turtle/hare thing, a logic puzzle thats only solved by reversing the whole thing and find 1, instead of going from 1 to Pi...because they have a trillion digits and a trillion more.

            "Normalization" in Physics, just say "round it iut to 1" instead of "Infinity".

            Similar idea, I did it a lot and use it to find "side length 1" of things, or center, depending on situation.

            Incommensurable only applies when you try to compare it to 1...not to itself.

            You are now using numbers. Well technically "1" isn't a number because it's "the principle of numbers". When you say "pi" or use an expression as a placeholder for number, that's not proof it is one. You are calling "undefined" a number and then attempting to use it as a base, which is something you do with numbers. It's a complicated coping mechanism that ultimately reveals you're basically just a buffoon. You haven't discovered or alluded to anything of use, let alone something original.

      pi is not an infinite decimal in base 10. it can't be expressed in base 10. same as 1/3 can't be expressed in base 10. that's why limits are needed and notation which looks like decimal expansions, but which actually are not.

    Platonists don't say anything about maths being the harmonious language of the universe
    It just says that it exists, in parrelel to the physical world, and that it has an inhrent truth to it

    In fact, the fact that we cannot draw a perfect circle, or construct some irrational numbers with ruler & compass, is proof that this world of Ideas is fuller, truther, and contains more than the Physical one, and that any attempt at comparison is just imperfect analogy, much like the shadows of the cavern

    Everything else is derived or personal interpretation. The main thesis alone is very powerful, and it does motivate a search for some echoes of this perfect world in the real one

      Platonism is a vague umbrella term. (In the context of math) it would entail believing that math exists somewhere very real but outside of our world. See:

      More generally, Platonism entails an incorporeal world of forms that are perfect. One could look to the cave analogy and see our world as warped imperfect reflections of the real forms. I suppose if you want to apply this interpretation of platoinsm, perhaps our world is just imperfect, somehow in the Math World you could represent all irrational numbers the best way possible, but here, the Demiurge fricked up and so we can't. I don't know.

          The Demiurge isn't an exclusively gnostic idea and as far as I remember first features in The Timeaus so is well within the realm of Platonism. With that in mind, I don't remember Plato's Demiurge being evil, just imperfect.

      the so called word of ideas you talk about requires a language, which also allows these constructions. because of entropy, we could argue that the perfect circle and the unicorn are possible and could happen. ever hear of Boltzmann Brains? like imagine one brain popping out of nowhere with the memory that the Platonist Theory was proved. kek

      This, because you CAN construct it, even internally (though thats more indepth).

    Platonic ideals are dumb as an epistomology, but it's internally consistent and your 'paradox' doesn't apply. A Platonist would say that an infinite sequence of numbers is still a perfect form. The Forms are not bound by material constraints, like needing to be written out.
