I do not see any reason for this place to degenerate to flame wars either.
None the same, I was retired as an invalid by the Chief Medical Officer (CMO). I am told this is because of mental issues. One of them is a style of autism. The main effect is that i can't really create a 'larger picture' from the texts. For example, I can not see this 'war' that is supposedly going on here. I am probably saying things that might incite people, but unless I am made aware of it at the level of a specific example, I have no way of knowing what is going on.
Autism is in a sense, where if one presented a person with a large 'L' made out of small 'S' symbols, the autistic person might not see the 'L' and only see the S's that make it. A different form is they would only see the L and not that it is made of S's. This occurs at all sorts of levels: some people are unable to abstract sentences past what is written, and rely entirely on other people's opinions to determine that a parody has occured, or the like.
I spent many years on a help desk, and there it serves well to deal with the specific question asked, and then to construct an impression of what actually happened in the system. At no point do i look or even see the intents of the questioner, although I do know in one case, I was asked about the underpreformance of a different staff member in the client department, and at another event, a criminal event that happened elsewhere. I was told these after the event.
A lot of mathematicians and phd people follow me on facebook, quora etc. In the main, I have no problems with mathematicians. What happens is that mathematics as taught in the schools, and the various works produced, gloss over the issues like bases and polytopes. It's really only when you sit down and try to convert something like 'the higher arithmetic' into something about bases that it becomes a fruitless task.
The level of mathematics needed in the university, to express bases, is simply to note that a need to fill the columns with digits as decimal does. I followed this thinking too, until i found alternating arithmetic, and then the word 'digit' degenerates into distinct meanings with different places. Decimal uses digital arithmetic at base level. Twelfty uses digital arithmetic at a sub-base level. Dozenal is decimal with extra digits.
I know this is not a twelfty-forum. It is a dozenal forum. The COF system is the twelfty TIOF converted to dozenal. I brought across all that is good in tiof. Twelfty is largely now restricted to places where it is appropriate. But twelfty is a mode of thought as much as chinese is to Double Sharp, and as he quotes his experiences with chinese, so do i with twelfty. But twelfty is not dozenal, even if the high place is 12. We can get away with teenty, because we're not pretending that 100 = 10 * 10.
I am sorry if people find there is some war or fued going on. I just don't see it. If hostile positions are coming from my position, I don't see it. But if people point things out at a post-level, then i have a chance of dealing with it. But for the most part, I will try to answer all issues, which often can drag things off-topic. I'm working on that too.
Twelfty is 120 dec, as 12 decades. V is teen, the '10' digit, E is elef, the '11' digit. A place is occupied by two staves (digits).
Digits group into 2's and 4's, and . , are comma points, : is the radix.
Numbers writen with a single point, in twelfty, like 5.3, means 5 dozen and 3. It is common to push 63 into 5.3 and viki verka.
Exponents (in dec): E = 10^x, Dx=12^x, H=120^x, regardless of base the numbers are in.
