• Hi, my name is Craig
Welcome Craig. I am of similar mind, but do consider myself a dozenalist. I do use uncial (dozenal) daily. I am not much younger than you. I have done some work with HCNs. I am partial to 60 because 30 is squarefree and I like a little more power behind the prime factor 2 to resolve quarters cleanl...

• A Simple and Intuitive Name and Numeral System for Sexagesimal
Welcome to the forum. If you're on PC, check out the button labeled "Full Editor & Preview". Click it and then you'll see "Add files". When you click that, you can add a graphic file to show your numerals. Interesting idea! I've done a lot of work with sexagesimal and numerals and am eager to see yo...

• New forum section on metaphysical numbers.
Seven is a long prime in both bases 10 and 12. It's not so bad in hexadecimal, since 16 is square. Of course, in tetradecimal it's a groovy 0.2. I can see "personality" used poetically, perhaps.

• RSC pertains to squarefree root of base n
This morning I had a realization that perhaps is not earth shaking and might seem esoteric, but pertains to useful aspects of number bases. Let's begin with some definitions. Let the infinite tensor C include all numbers coprime to base n , meaning gcd( k , n ) = 1 for all k in C . It follows that 1...

• DSA Annual Meeting, 1202;.
We have a right to what we think and believe. I don't think we need to argue here about the merit of someone's life journey. Let's let that remain the province of the person's own prerogative. Their perspective is their own. Let it suffice to say this. Richard you'd be welcome if you did come. No on...

I'd like to see your videos. The work is a worthwhile effort if it can deliver on enhancement of human evolution. Lord knows we need to evolve; the iPad and Twitter can't be all we've done. Ten thousand years (five dozen nine gross five dozen four years) is a long time: the Younger Dryas, I think, w...

Richard, it will be good to see you. Note that the group is coming together to discuss duodecimal numeration. Many of us have different beliefs (or lack thereof) and some perhaps face their own travails. That's their business. It's not a place to push life solutions; that's like answering questions ...

• Re: Regular Figure Cycles
I've come to find that CDF can be web-embedded. I'd tried some experiments but it as of yet does not work. If this is ultimately feasible and client sided, it opens up a tremendous opportunity for a variety of dynamic content. Nearly any of the diagrams recently posted, for instance, could be posted...

Kode, Sorry, offline over Sunday. YES the ruler would be TO SCALE. The program can generate a PDF. I have also been trying to get down to setting up embedded CDFs and not sure why they are not working. If that is true, then one could visit a page and then generate their own ruler. Alternatively, it ...

Let's suffice it to say that I think we're reading a heckuvalot into the guy's note. I am not sure he poured over every phoneme he wrote; I am sure I didn't. I was interested in "cobber" and did riff on it, but pulled it because picking on that "hey, pal, wanna rumble" sort of schmaltz seemed pointl...

Ah, well in that case we can take the index n of A246547( n ) and there, we have such a function. We can write a more efficient program than the Mathematica in that sequence. This one gives 10^7 terms nearly instantly, but the programs there search all numbers, testing them for PrimePowerQ and Not-P...

Look we're just having a conversation about of all things, rulers (measuring, not for administration. Administration of laws, not administration of "discipline". Whatever). Not everyone that brings up an issue is necessarily attacking you, Kode. A system of systems like yours can be daunting because...

Yes, the prime powers A000961 = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 16, 17, 19, ...} or A025475 = {1, 4, 8, 9, 16, 25, 27, 32, 49, 64, 81, ...} (not counting primes. There are also sequences that leave out 1; A246547 probably makes the best sense, if we are leaving out primes themselves). I am not sure...

• Re: Not going to great lengths for a measured question, as a rule
Just a nuance comment. In USC, the inches ought to be decimal to distinguish it from any proposal we are making. Whatever the "uncialness" of the foot-inch relationship or its storied history, USC is a decimal system of decimal auxiliaries and sundry mercantile standards. Thus ten inches beg to be w...

Thank you for this input! I think there will be a couple approaches. The first is going to be a "chips fall where they may" approach. "What happens if we divide a circle into b parts?" and we get what we get. Sure, I could divide a foot/meter into b inches/divisions and might do that for the "chips ...

Kode et al.; I am hoping to automatically generate a ruler in base b . Now the odd thing about a ruler in any base is that we have to do some ground work assumption about the basis of the b -lengthel. I am okay with dividing the day fully "base"-imally, getting a second-like unit, and then basing th...

3^9 = 3^3^2* is coming up in my life! I remember 3969 = 3^8; I was a senior in high school! Then I did think that 1323, I was a kid in first grade, and b483 I would probably have grown-up kids. I also remember "ten thousandth day" = 5954, when I was two dozen three years old; it was in the autumn. H...
