is when I first discovered intuitionistic mathematics and intuitionist logic by name. I’ve been loosely circling around this ever since as it jives with my way of thinking, forgetting and then remembering it exists.
Nicholas Gisin would not publish his groundbreaking physics papers on Time using intuitionistic mathematics until:
“Jan 13, 2019 – Four new papers by the Swiss physicist Nicolas Gisin argue that this mathematical language may hold the key to one of the greatest mysteries in physics: time.”
which means my mind was in the right place to understand where he was coming from when I read the article and the papers: and I was.
It’s satisfying because had I lived in a different part of the world and went to the same cafe as him, and he was in the middle of working on these things in 2017, I could listen and understand at least a ‘gist’ of some of the ideas he was talking about because I was already on the intuitionistic way of thinking.
