Nice to meet you, IQfy. Here's my card.

Nothing Ever Happens Shirt $21.68 |

There is no layer of hell too deep for people who deliberately peddle mathematical falsehoods.

>a bunch of symbols normies don't understand

Man this guy must be a genius

he publishes around mod gravity

Infinity does not exist. If you rip out the infinity from 1+2+3+... you are left with -1/12, which does exist.

He should be more explicit in how he gets from Line #1 to Line #2.

>plus infinity

damn

I honestly hope this is bait. I know this guy is a pop-math midwit, but jesus christ this is bad.

Math moron here. Can you guys explain the (shit) joke/reference he's making?

If there's a joke I don't get it. Unless the joke is how absurd the attempted proof is and was presented as satire.

there is no joke. it's just the card says the sum of the naturals is -1/12.

sorry, the sum of the naturals plus infinity.

>Same mad gay

OP proves what he is saying logically and has written it clearly to you.

Would you care to summarize his proof in your own words? I would enjoy watching you pretend to understand what's happening on the first line.

here

illogical nonsense math's equivalent to baffle gab

ah yes, the classic poof by "nuh-uh" rebuttal, how lovely and eloquent

That is a very british smile

Meds. Now.

>evades question

Your concession is accepted.

> third line

> finite number plus +infinity = negative finite number

Literally false by definition. Any finite number + +infinity is +infinity.

Everything else is correct.

Sloppy writing I assume, should just be

> 1+ 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + .... = -1/12

/thread

It's not false exactly, it's better to say any statement with "+ Infinity" is meaningless.

> It's not false exactly

It is, by definition.

> it's better to say any statement with "+ Infinity" is meaningless.

No, it's defined.

> hurr but it's not... LE INTUITIVE

too bad bucko

>No, it's defined.

addition isn't defined for infinity

try again

You can't help but feel that the English are a subspecies

These paradoxes are literally caused by dividing by zero, which is what all infinities are.

S=1-1+1-1+...

S=1-S

2S=1

S=1/2

Can you spot the mistake?

there ain't none

Yeah, you tried to manipulate an infinite sequence in an undefined manner.

You can't assign a non-convergent series to a variable then attempt to treat it like a real number. All the results you get afterwards will be nonsensical.

>All the results you get afterwards will be nonsensical.

No necessarily.

Just in the sense that broken clock is accurate twice a day.

not clocks that run on unix time

S=0+0+0+...

S=1-0

Somewhere there i suppose

do you… understand the algebra of that part?

What mistake?

S is either 0 or 1, so 1/2 makes sense

>resorting a not absolutely convergent series

yes, but that's just like the cherry on top of an entire shit cake.

gay

Debunked.

>bald

>german

you have my attention

>old vid, meaning he's unaware of the new developments brought up in

*yawn*

>if we change the equation then the answer also changes

wow, truly genius, I see that mcdonalds degree is paying off well

So wait, is he saying that the famous Indian mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan, was a scammer?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramanujan_summation

>if we just put a - in front of it it becomes negative

Yes, we know, that doesn't mean adding infinite positive integers will result in -1/12

How could it be that they published that schizophrenia of playing around with infinitites and I cannot publish my thing. And nobody dares to confess that they don't have my peers to peer-review it!

Your schizophrenia is cringe, whereas Ramanujan's was based.

i concur with this anon, there is a reason that one goddess revealed that shit to 'ol ramalamadingdong, and not your schizo ass

I hope these people have anvils dropped on their heads for encouraging redditors to get math degrees. I really didn't need that.

1/12 represents jesus and his disciples

sum of integers is rest of the humanity

accept the holy word

repent

but i do agree that mathologer is very good, and within the knowledge he had at the time, it is a very good video

That's not a proof, just various notations for the same thing.

Now bag my fricking groceries.

Nice coloring.

Let's see Paul Allen's card.
