Decoding the Universe. The great math Mystery.
Please do watch it.
Minimum two things are required to describe anything. Because one of it is taken reference to say that this is not the same object as other. This is perhaps the fundamental principle, which we humans are limited by.
Why I say minimum two things? I have written it on article: http://bioinsilico.blogspot.in/2015/03/intelligence-and-in-search-of.html
Minimum two different things are required to describe anything.
To reach this conclusion, lets find out what we see or know. We know things by knowing their shapes. But how to know the shape of a particular object. For it we have to know the distance (the way of arrangement of the object). But again the question arises, how we know the distance. What makes us aware of the distance?
Lets take an example of colored board problem.
Imagine a one red colored board. Also imagine we are only seeing it and nothing else. Can we distinguish anything from it? We only see red and nothing else. Take a analogy of a person with eyes closed. When he/she enters the room, he/she can't distinguish between a chair, a table, a bed. He/she even can't say the particular object exists or not.
Now come again to the colored board problem. Now another big black color circle comes in the board. But how do we know it, its a circle not a square. To know it we should be aware of distance. With using distance we can tell, whether its a circle or square. Its because we have tendency to measure distance, we can distinguish between a square and circle.
But how does distance arises in our mind?
We measure distance by counting. But how do we do counting here. We can only say that red is different from black. We can't count any thing in it. How the numbers are so intuitive in our brain. We can't count number of red dots in the board, neither we can count number of black dots (circle) in the board.
So there is something that makes us count. Its a reference. The SMALLEST reference.
Imagine a smallest black dot in the board, surrounded by red color. Now take it (the smallest black dot) as reference.
Now we are ready to say whether the black one is a circle or a square by counting. Just start putting the smallest reference black dots in the black circle line by line and measure no. of dots in each line. The first line would have one dot. The second line would have two dots, third 3 dots and at diameter maximum number of dots, than when we go down, the dots decreases and reaches to one again.
Bingo.. we know counting now.
Perhaps our limitation are based on this principle.
