00:00:08 <oerjan> oklopol: you're doomed. DOOMED!
00:00:28 <oklopol> :---------------------------------------------------------------------------------O
00:00:51 <oerjan> as would anyone with that kind of nose, mind you
00:13:19 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: leaving).
00:15:14 <augur> oklopol: ok heres the challenge
00:16:10 <augur> i will design a trivial little universe, with very simple physics, and a small finite number of universe configurations
00:19:09 <augur> ill provide you with causal graphs of these configurations and its your job to come up with a description of the physics governing this little universe
00:19:18 <augur> hows that sound?
00:21:31 <oklopol> sounds fun.
00:25:18 -!- augur has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
00:30:55 * Sgeo still doesn't see why he shouldn't switch to Haskell for all his needs
00:31:44 <pikhq> Because you should.
00:32:04 <lament> because python is better
00:32:18 <Sgeo> forM_ somelist $ \item -> do
00:32:21 <Sgeo> Has its own charm
00:32:46 <lament> if by charm you mean it looks ugly!
00:33:10 <fax> oklopol
00:33:17 <Sgeo> It's not some magic syntax thing
00:33:41 <Sgeo> Unlike for/foreach in just about every other language
00:33:42 <fax> Sgeo, if/then/else *is* magic syntax, but it shouldn't be
00:33:49 <pikhq> Sgeo: forM_ is quite a bit more general, also.
00:36:48 <Sgeo> You know what I don't like? The emphasis that seems to need to be placed on efficiency
00:37:17 <Sgeo> The trivial quicksort that everyone talks about is apparently the wrong way to do it do to efficiency concerns, or something
00:37:29 <fax> Sgeo -- quicksort sucks
00:37:44 <fax> who needs to sort lists ?
00:37:51 <fax> seriously it's just a waste fo time
00:37:56 -!- charlls has quit (Quit: Saliendo).
00:38:16 <oklopol> who even needs lists
00:38:33 <Sgeo> Can you say that about every algorithm where the trivial implementation is inefficient?
00:38:43 <oklopol> i bet i could live for a year without a list of any kind
00:39:06 -!- oerjan has joined.
00:40:00 <fax> Sgeo most everything in haskell is inefficent
00:40:26 <lament> haskell sucks
00:40:38 <oklopol> i hate haskell
00:40:43 <fax> :D
00:40:47 <oklopol> OOP is the way
00:41:35 <lament> exactly
00:41:43 <fax> :[
00:42:18 * Sgeo wonders how you'd write a NetHack-like game in Haskell
00:42:20 <oklopol> faxes are outdated.

00:42:35 <fax> Sgeo easy way to find out is to do it!
00:45:12 <Sgeo> There's no nice way to use two different types of STRefs in a single ST monad ins.. whatever it's called, is there?
00:45:27 -!- Slereah has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
00:46:01 <oerjan> um what do you mean by two different types of STRefs?
00:46:27 <Sgeo> An STRef that holds an Int and an STRef that holds a String, for instance
00:46:50 <oerjan> of course you can. excuse me while i look it up...
00:50:06 -!- Slereah has joined.
00:51:50 <oerjan> !haskell import Control.Monad.ST; import Data.STref; main = runST $ do sr <- newSTRef "1"; nr <- newSTRef 2; writeSTRef sr "n is "; writeSTRef nr 3; s <- readSTRef sr; n <- readSTRef nr; return (s ++ show n)
00:52:21 <oerjan> !haskell import Control.Monad.ST; import Data.STRef; main = runST $ do sr <- newSTRef "1"; nr <- newSTRef 2; writeSTRef sr "n is "; writeSTRef nr 3; s <- readSTRef sr; n <- readSTRef nr; return (s ++ show n)

00:53:10 <EgoBot> n is 3
00:53:28 <oerjan> yay just three attempts needed </s>
00:54:40 <fax> !haskell "n is 3"
00:54:41 <EgoBot> "n is 3"
00:55:08 * oerjan suddenly recalls that it was not necessarily safe to use $ with runST
00:55:14 <coppro> runST?
00:55:37 <pikhq> Everything is inefficient in languages other than bits.
00:55:43 <oerjan> the function to run a command in the ST monad
00:55:47 <pikhq> coppro: runST :: St a -> a
00:55:53 <oerjan> pikhq: no!
00:55:55 <pikhq> Erm. ST a -> a.
00:56:05 <pikhq> Oh, wait.
00:56:07 <pikhq> It's ST.
00:56:08 <oerjan> it uses type magic
00:56:33 <oerjan> and that type magic means it has varied whether you could use it with $
00:56:33 <coppro> oh
00:56:45 <oerjan> runST :: (forall s. ST s a) -> a
00:56:57 <pikhq> Argh. Right.
00:57:02 -!- Slereah has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
00:57:06 <Sgeo> ST s a
00:57:09 <pikhq> It's unusual.
00:57:22 <Sgeo> I'm still confused about the forall. I know why it's there, but not what it oes
00:57:23 <Sgeo> *does
00:58:51 <oerjan> i suppose it ensures that two different invocations of runST can never know that they have the same s, and so are type incompatible and not confused
00:59:17 <Sgeo> That doesn't teach me what forall. is supposed to mean
00:59:33 <pikhq> oerjan: No, forall is not uniqueness typing.
00:59:45 <oerjan> pikhq: i didn't say that
00:59:54 <oerjan> s is a type, not a value
00:59:57 <Sgeo> There is Lady Gaga behind this window
01:00:32 <oerjan> Sgeo: the thing passed to runST must be a value that is polymorphic for _all_ possible s
01:00:55 <pikhq> Mmkay.
01:02:46 -!- Slereah has joined.
01:03:03 <pikhq> Oh, I get it.
01:03:16 <oerjan> yay
01:03:54 <pikhq> The "s" must inherently come from runST, and cannot come from anywhere else, because of that forall. So, runST is pure.
01:04:07 <pikhq> Instead of being unsafePerformIO.
01:05:59 <oerjan> Sgeo: afaict the ability to use different types for your STRef's in an ST invocation is precisely how ST _differs_ from State. if you had only one type you would be able to use State with a map or something instead to simulate your refs. but ST with several types cannot be implemented in pure haskell.
01:06:42 * Sgeo still doesn't grok how State is implemented in pure Haskell
01:07:01 <oerjan> well at least you can read the definition
01:07:20 <pikhq> Sgeo: The State monad simply keeps track of a single value called a "state" and threads that around.
01:07:43 <oerjan> newtype State s a = State { runState :: s -> (a, s) }
01:07:44 <Sgeo> How does get get a hold of that thread, if it's type is State a?
01:08:10 <pikhq> State s a.
01:08:22 <pikhq> You pass runState the initial state.
01:08:48 <pikhq> And "modification" of the state is actually replacing the state with an entirely different one.
01:09:03 <pikhq> (note: compiler may freely replace it with actual modification at will)
01:09:19 <Sgeo> And how is get defined, exactly?
01:09:39 <oerjan> instance MonadState s (State s) where get = State $ \s -> (s, s) put s = State $ \_ -> ((), s)
01:09:53 <oerjan> (line breaks got elided)
01:10:09 <oerjan> instance MonadState s (State s) where get = State $ \s -> (s, s); put s = State $ \_ -> ((), s)
01:11:02 * Sgeo needs a tutorial
01:11:28 <oerjan> so get is a State s s value that takes the threaded state and uses it _both_ for the returned value and the next threaded state
01:11:33 <coppro> oerjan: are those supposed to be uncurried?
01:11:50 <oerjan> get takes no arguments
01:12:16 <oerjan> (unless you unwrap the type first)
01:12:22 <Sgeo> What does the State function do?
01:12:30 <coppro> it's a constructor
01:12:36 <Sgeo> I know that mich
01:12:37 <Sgeo> *much
01:12:43 <pikhq> ... That's what it does.
01:12:49 <pikhq> It constructs a new value.
01:13:26 <oerjan> it builds an action in the State monad from a function describing how the threads the state and produces a result
01:13:42 <Sgeo> So get is something that would have >>= before it?
01:13:49 <Sgeo> As opposed to the more usual >>?
01:14:02 <Sgeo> Wait, no
01:14:04 <oerjan> apart from type, an action in the State monad _is_ just such a function
01:14:21 <oerjan> nope, get has no function arguments as an action
01:14:30 <oerjan> put, on the other hand, does
01:15:04 <Sgeo> So get just gives the monad a function to execute?
01:15:07 <oerjan> put s is an action that ignores the old state and uses s as the new one
01:15:33 <oerjan> Sgeo: _every_ State monad action is just a function wrapped in a State constructor
01:16:18 <oerjan> get, put s, etc.
01:17:30 <oerjan> and runState does nothing other than unwrap that constructor again. it's there for type purposes only.

01:47:25 <Sgeo> I keep seeing OCaml being suggested as a stepping stone to Haskell.
01:47:34 <Sgeo> Does that mean for me, OCaml would be a step backwardsa?
01:47:37 <Sgeo> *backwards?
01:49:03 <oerjan> well ocaml does have some interesting features not in haskell
01:49:58 <oerjan> like an object system but still with type inference, and an ML-like module system with functors. and better records (haskell's are generally admitted to be awful)
01:51:41 <oerjan> so it might be good to take a look at it still
01:52:21 * Sgeo shouldn't be looking at anything but C# right now
01:52:27 <oerjan> of course for me ocaml _was_ a stepping stone to haskell, so i haven't used it for years
01:52:47 <oerjan> you might look at F# which i hear is descended from ocaml
01:53:16 <oerjan> but i also think it lacks some of those interesting features
01:53:30 <oerjan> while being .NET compatible
01:55:01 <fax> Sgeo ugh no way

04:45:31 <coppro> oh
04:45:40 <coppro> assume I'm stupid
04:45:43 <coppro> and haven't paid attention
04:46:04 <Sgeo> coppro, game that I'm making with a few other people [only one other programmer]
04:46:16 <Sgeo> It's on the AW platform, so it's not as much work as it sounds, but still
04:46:42 <Sgeo> The um.. financer, I guess, is giving us some stuff, but wants to see results
04:46:44 <coppro> is the deadline the due date, or a partway-through thing
04:46:54 <Sgeo> partway-through
04:46:58 <coppro> ah
04:47:03 <coppro> and I presume you aren't there yet?
04:47:29 <Sgeo> Fairly close, but if the person's expecting 100%, it's not happening

05:23:54 <Sgeo> Other languages [Python, Ruby, Haskell, Scheme], it feels like they're all competing for my affection. It's as though I'll only allow myself to truly love one language.

05:37:38 <Sgeo> If Haskell can't do state, then surely it isn't Turing Complete?
05:38:21 <augur> sgeo, it can simulate state!
05:38:29 <augur> like the lambda calculus can!
05:38:43 <Sgeo> What does Calculus have to do with anything?
05:39:00 <pikhq> Sgeo: It can do more than simulate state.
05:39:13 <pikhq> ST is entirely imperative. It is also entirely pure.
05:39:14 <Sgeo> /ctcp pikhq time
05:39:15 <Sgeo> oops
05:39:26 <coppro> Sgeo: uh, please tell me that you haven't been hanging out in here for months while never once hearing of lambda calculus
05:39:30 <Sgeo> I thought Haskell can't do imperative
05:39:30 <pikhq> No joke.
05:39:38 <augur> lambda calculus
05:39:40 <pikhq> *Ah*. Right.
05:39:44 * pikhq skips forward
05:39:53 <augur> not calculus as in newton/leibniz
05:39:55 <augur> a "calculus" is a means of calculating something.
05:40:00 <pikhq> Sgeo: Well, you see, it only pretends to. With this "monad" bullshit.
05:40:09 <pikhq> Named after Monad Leibniz.
05:40:40 -!- wareya has joined.
05:41:24 <Sgeo> So, this Monad fellow.. he invented math and computers?

05:41:49 <pikhq> The syntax was chosen, of course, to be compatible with C++'s most brilliant design principles.
05:42:07 <augur> is SGEO being full of shit? XD
05:42:12 <pikhq> Oh, also. What follows after "//" is not a comment.

08:45:21 <coppro> unknown
08:45:44 <coppro> signs point to permanent
08:45:55 <coppro> though one can never tell with Google
08:46:32 <Sgeo> Google tends to be more "nope, it wasn't April 1st joke after all"
08:46:39 <Sgeo> Then again, that's coming from one data point
08:47:34 <coppro> exactly
08:47:41 <coppro> I also like the units of measure on the search page
08:48:17 <Sgeo> Maybe someone was using that information for something important! And now they just screw it up?
08:48:40 <coppro> "Whatever the outcome, the conclusion was clear: we aren't in Google anymore."
08:49:04 <Sgeo> lol; I think I missed that
08:52:14 <coppro> it was in the blog post I just linked
08:54:28 <Sgeo> coppro, I know, I read it before, and failed to notice that line
08:54:56 <Sgeo> Also, this "wear blue for autism on April 2nd" stuff is backed by racing4autism, which links to Autism Speaks and Generation Rescue

09:34:29 <myndzi> i like that youtube brought it in
09:36:23 <fizzie> For the DIY folks, it's pretty much always been possible to just plug a youtube get_video URL into mplayer, and use either the aalib or libcaca text-based video-out drivers.

10:51:30 <fizzie> Ilari: The web page just says "2048 available colours (some devices can only handle 16)". (I'm not sure where they have 2k colours... maybe using the "direct" X11 output, I think it had one too.)

18:00:35 <Slereah> or .fr
18:00:36 <AnMaster> Slereah, but I use google.com normally
18:00:42 <AnMaster> easy to switch though
18:00:51 <Slereah> I do too, but it switches automatically to .fr
18:00:52 <AnMaster> just a link near the bottom of the front page
18:00:57 <zzo38> Some people made the "Check for brainwave activity" code as short as 10 bytes in shell scripts, I cannot quite figure it out but I did reduce it to 12 bytes. After 10 days I can figure out what it is
18:01:01 <AnMaster> oh and did you see xkcd
18:01:01 <Slereah> I hate it when softwares try to second guess me
18:01:04 <AnMaster> xkcd's shell
18:01:06 <Slereah> yes
18:01:08 <AnMaster> quite nice
18:01:09 <Slereah> Also 4chan

18:01:22 <Slereah> I hate april fool
18:01:27 <Slereah> It's always so stupid
18:01:31 <AnMaster> Slereah, ?
18:01:34 <AnMaster> what about 4chan
18:02:02 <Slereah> There's a "post to facebook" option on the post window for april fool
18:02:16 <AnMaster> Slereah, oh and maps.google.com.au gives directions in AU slang
18:02:17 <AnMaster> like:
18:02:32 <AnMaster> "Turn a smidge left when you get to South Western Mwy
18:02:33 <AnMaster> Ya might have to cough up some cash along here"
18:02:39 <Slereah> Crikey!
18:02:45 <AnMaster> Slereah, :D
18:02:58 <AnMaster> Slereah, still waiting for the RFC
18:04:22 <Slereah> RFC?
18:04:28 <zzo38> Will there be a fool RFC this year?
18:04:47 <Slereah> Roman Fatholic church?
18:04:48 <zzo38> Will INTERCAL be released this year?
18:05:07 <Slereah> Isn't it already?
18:05:13 <Slereah> Also what is RFC
18:05:36 <zzo38> RFC is short for "Request For Comment"
18:06:01 <zzo38> It is usually a specification for some internet protocol or something like that. But it can sometimes describe other stuff, too
18:07:32 <AnMaster> and there is usually joke ones on 1 April
18:07:43 <AnMaster> Slereah, are you serious about never having heard about RFCs?
18:07:57 <AnMaster> like the IRC RFC, 14xx (forgot the last two digits)
18:08:48 <AnMaster> Slereah, IP, TCP, HTTP and pretty much every other common non-vendor-specific protocol is specified in one (or more) RFC(s)
18:11:13 * Sgeo pulled a fax earlier, maybe Slereah's doing the same?
18:13:58 <oklofok> hello everyone, this morning i woke up to find i had turned into seven monkeys
18:14:25 <oklofok> and only three of those monkeys were virgins
18:19:36 <lament> congrats, you're 4/7 less of a virgin than before
18:20:16 <zzo38> Hello, this moring I woke up to find out that my bed was on the ceiling
18:20:27 <zzo38> And I had eight eyes, just like my D&D character does
18:20:36 <zzo38> But then I realized I was still sleeping
18:20:58 <oklofok> lament: i can't do the math do you mean i was a virgin before or that i wasn't or what?
18:21:03 <AnMaster> * Sgeo pulled a fax earlier, maybe Slereah's doing the same?
18:21:06 <AnMaster> what do you mean?
18:21:09 <oklofok> i'm seven monkeys you see
18:21:21 <AnMaster> oklofok, how many were using typewriters?
18:21:25 <Sgeo> AnMaster, I convinced at least two people that I was more of an idiot than I am
18:21:30 <oklofok> he's referring to the time fax said she didn't like haskell
18:21:37 <AnMaster> oklofok, this is of uttermost importance!
18:21:38 <oklofok> err
18:21:44 <oklofok> the time she said she doesn't know haskell
18:22:06 <AnMaster> Sgeo, wow. That would be like at absolute zero then?
18:22:13 * Sgeo growls
18:22:14 <AnMaster> (sorry, couldn't resist)
18:22:18 <lament> oh, today is 1st of april, which means we can all lie to each other
18:22:32 <AnMaster> lament, why should I trust that?
18:22:39 <oklofok> but i'm really monkeys
18:22:45 <AnMaster> lament, also it is March 32
18:22:48 <lament> but today is really the 1st of april
18:22:48 <AnMaster> not 1 April

18:24:26 <Sgeo> It has an IRC client
18:24:30 <AnMaster> Sgeo, what does?
18:24:35 <Sgeo> unixkcd
18:24:40 <AnMaster> oh didn't notice
18:24:45 <AnMaster> Sgeo, what network does it go to?
18:24:48 <Sgeo> Foonetic
18:24:58 <Sgeo> Type irc AnMaster or something
18:25:11 <augur> i think xkcd should stick with this theme forever.
18:25:13 <augur> i rather like it
18:25:15 <Sgeo> Also, `find kitten` is fun
18:25:19 <zzo38> I just tried the xkcd shell. I typed "pwd" and it responded with "You are in a maze of twisty passages, all alike."

19:36:51 <zzo38> When I write a Linux distribution I will have to do some things like, "wg" is like "wget -O -", "e" is "echo", "en" is like "echo" but each parameter is output to a separate line, and so on
19:43:58 <zzo38> I should also do it so that if the window manager's key is pushed and released by itself, it will show/hide mouse pointer (moving the mouse also shows the pointer)
19:45:36 <Gregor> So essentially, you think Linux would be better if it was cryptically difficult to use.
19:45:59 <pikhq> Those are of great confusion.
19:46:08 <zzo38> Well, this is how I would make it, anyways. There would be more two letter commands and one letter commands, for one thing.
19:46:12 <pikhq> And I note that I only recently started using a window manager that reparents.
19:46:31 <coppro> reparent?
19:46:40 -!- oklopol has joined.
19:46:46 <zzo38> I would probably write a new shell, too, with some new features and some removed, and so on
19:46:52 <pikhq> coppro: Most window managers reparent windows so they can draw title bars.
19:47:00 <pikhq> And window borders.
19:48:19 <pikhq> Ratpoison leaves the parent as root, because who needs graphics?
19:48:26 <pikhq> That's not why you're running X, is it, silly?
19:49:06 <coppro> ah
19:49:23 <zzo38> And I also have to make it be: All window manager's functions are accessed with the window manager's key and combination with keyboard and/or mouse, except for clicking the title bar and task bar, which can be done without. Which key is the window manager's key could be configured, and can be indicated "wm-" in emacs notation
19:49:40 <coppro> go ahead
19:49:57 <zzo38> For example, wm-t could show/hide taskbar and wm-tab could switch next window, and so on, like that.
19:50:12 <zzo38> It should hide the title-bar for maximized windows, so therefore I will make it to do tha.
19:50:36 <pikhq> zzo38: That sort of thing is fairly common. I assume you'd go a bit further in that you would make *all* functionality keyboard-accessible, which few WMs use, but... Yeah.
19:50:50 <pikhq> Could quite reasonably just do a few minor patches against Fluxbox for that.
19:51:43 <zzo38> Yes, ake *all* functionality keyboard-accessible. Although, a few things would work with the mouse also because some things might work better with it, for example if you want to size/move a window or select window or stuff graphically (there is three mouse buttons, and also modifier keys, so there is many combinations)
19:52:59 -!- kar8nga has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
19:52:59 <pikhq> As I said, fairly reasonable, and it would probably not take much work to add to Fluxbox.
19:53:07 <zzo38> So, ALT+mouse won't drag a window unless ALT is the window manager's key. And even if it is, you have to use the middle mouse button.
19:53:23 <zzo38> Because wm key + left mouse button would be used to resize windows instead.
19:54:11 -!- sshc has quit (Quit: leaving).
19:55:57 <zzo38> We don't need any fancy gradient title-bars and 3-D dialog boxes and stuff like that. We don't need any icons or buttons on the title-bar either, the mouse already has three buttons!

20:01:39 -!- hiato has joined.
20:01:59 <zzo38> Many two-letter and one-letter command names are not used yet in UNIX, and some things I don't agree how they work (such as wget sending output to the file instead of to stdout, all programs should receive their input from stdin and send their output to stdout, and then you can use < > to redirect to files or | to pipes to other programs)
20:03:12 <hiato> zzo38: rant? :P
20:12:39 <zzo38> And if "pm" is the package manager, you could install an external package with "wg http://example.org/pm/web-browser | pm" or something like that.
20:13:59 <zzo38> Or, probably more like: wg http://example.org/pm/web-browser | s pm -I

20:56:23 <fizzie> ehirdiphone: Coincidentally, the N900 repository has texlive.

20:56:48 <fizzie> I can't imagine it being very friendly to use.

20:57:20 <Gregor> laaaaaaaawl
20:57:51 <ehirdiphone> setoid would be better as

20:59:10 <ehirdiphone> My cardinality stuff was awesome
21:00:14 <ehirdiphone> Except you need to add that A -> B has cardinality \aleph_0 iff B has. I think.
21:00:21 <ehirdiphone> Yeah.
21:00:46 <ehirdiphone> Or otherwise... Hmm, more than the cardinality of B.
21:01:05 <ehirdiphone> |A| * |B|, I think.
21:01:17 <ehirdiphone> As an axio
21:01:19 <ehirdiphone> m
21:02:03 <ehirdiphone> Can't prove it, requires a bijection from A->B to naturals or finite set (naturals mod some N)
21:03:50 <ehirdiphone> Hmm. Does INF -> FIN really have infinite cardinality?
21:03:57 <ehirdiphone> Naw. Finite.

21:20:29 <coppro> red oval, green oval, blue oval

21:20:48 <lament> let's number them!
21:20:52 <lament> i'm type 842
21:21:06 <ehirdiphone> You could easily add:

21:22:20 <lament> 8723 :: 23 -> 974
21:22:51 <ehirdiphone> For functions, metajustification: if you can analyse functions' in/out pairs on countably infinite sets it can never exceed their cards
21:23:12 <ehirdiphone> For sets, too lazy to come up with a real justification
21:23:43 <ehirdiphone> Actual implementation for functions could be serialise ast. It doesn't matter.

21:41:50 <Sgeo> ehirdiphone, can you read email on that thing?
21:42:12 <ehirdiphone> pow S := sum T, forall x:T, x in T -> x in S
21:42:35 <ehirdiphone> So "in" is risky.
21:42:46 <ehirdiphone> or rather
21:42:50 <ehirdiphone> The axiom
21:43:07 <ehirdiphone> (S:*) -> pow S
21:43:11 <ehirdiphone> is risky
21:43:16 <ehirdiphone> Sgeo: Yes
21:43:47 <Sgeo> If you want, read the email I sent to agora BUS: Re: In Honor of B
21:43:56 <Sgeo> Or just http://pastie.org/private/vv0eusi1ahas50htd7w
21:44:56 <ehirdiphone> Heh
21:45:11 <ehirdiphone> No wait pow is subset
21:46:17 <ehirdiphone> pow S := sum T, forall U, (forall x, x in U -> x in S) -> U in T

21:55:05 <ehirdiphone> Inductive apart (T:*) : T -> T -> Prop := lfer : forall T, forall x:T, forall y:T, (exists P, P x /\ ~P y) -> apart x y
21:55:20 <ehirdiphone> oerjan: Yeah but you cannot construct the reals
21:55:25 <Deewiant> Ilari: There's a netcat6
21:55:30 <ehirdiphone> Only the computable reals
21:55:42 <ehirdiphone> And they're just functions on rationals
21:55:57 <oerjan> ehirdiphone: but (Integer -> Bool) can have no bijection with Integer, or whatever
21:56:09 <ehirdiphone> Why not?
21:56:12 <ehirdiphone> A
21:56:35 <ehirdiphone> And all that means is that the comp reals have no cardinality as such
21:56:39 <oerjan> (terminating (Integer -> Bool), of course)
21:56:52 <ehirdiphone> Why not?
21:57:17 <oerjan> assume you have a bijection b : Integer -> (Integer -> Bool)
21:57:18 <ehirdiphone> It's just an infinite list of books
21:57:22 <ehirdiphone> Bools
21:57:57 <oerjan> then \n -> not (b n n) gives a contradiction
21:58:09 <ehirdiphone> I think fax said something about this it is only metatheoretivally valid
21:58:16 <ehirdiphone> Theoretically
21:58:33 <ehirdiphone> oerjan: hmm why?
21:58:50 <oerjan> well if (s)he means it in the sense that there _are_ countable models, then that is true of ZFC as well
21:58:59 <ehirdiphone> she
21:59:05 <oerjan> but there can be no bijection _internal_ to the model
21:59:19 <oerjan> or surjection, for that matter
21:59:36 <ehirdiphone> anyway why is that a contradiction? Of course you have no idea what b does
22:00:09 <ehirdiphone> Mind I am really tired
22:00:21 <oerjan> well for b to be a surjection _means_ : forall f : Integer -> Bool, exists n : Integer such that b n == f
22:00:34 <ehirdiphone> Ofc
22:00:39 <ehirdiphone> And?
22:00:52 <oerjan> well let f = \n -> not (b n n)
22:01:04 <ehirdiphone> Ah
22:01:15 <ehirdiphone> Then?
22:01:35 <ehirdiphone> (f n) where b n = f?
22:01:46 <oerjan> yes
22:01:57 <ehirdiphone> Then it is _|_. I see.
22:02:10 <ehirdiphone> So the functions are strictly bigger.
22:02:24 <oerjan> yep
22:02:49 <ehirdiphone> So do we just have |R| or more?
22:03:18 <oerjan> well in ZFC they are of course equal, but here i don't know
22:03:30 <ehirdiphone> I guess R -> R must be bigger.
22:03:36 <ehirdiphone> But. Wait.
22:03:49 <ehirdiphone> oerjan: It cannot be |R| surely
22:03:58 <ehirdiphone> as we cannot constrict the reals
22:04:02 <ehirdiphone> Nstrict
22:04:04 <ehirdiphone> Construct
22:04:16 <oerjan> i assumed you meant something called the reals in your system
22:04:32 <ehirdiphone> I meant beth-one
22:04:38 -!- augur has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
22:04:43 <oerjan> it is afaik _meaningless_ to compare cardinalities from ZFC with cardinalities in your system
22:05:00 <ehirdiphone> Probably.
22:05:01 <oerjan> they're not in the same fundamental theory model
22:05:10 -!- augur has joined.
22:05:15 <ehirdiphone> I wonder what the infinite cardinalities are?
22:05:38 <oerjan> and outside a model, everything can be considered countable if the axioms are (and they must be if things are finite strings)
22:06:03 <oerjan> well cantor's theorem can be iterated of course, to get a sequence of larger sets
22:06:21 <ehirdiphone> Yes. But it needs the reals.
22:06:38 <ehirdiphone> The computable reals are definitely smaller than the reals
22:06:42 <oerjan> um i'm talking about something more fundamental than the reals
22:06:51 <ehirdiphone> because almost all reals are uncomputsnle
22:07:06 <ehirdiphone> oerjan: I'm not paying much attention :)
22:07:06 <oerjan> basically, A^B is _always_ larger than B if A has at least 2 elements
22:07:19 <ehirdiphone> B -> A yeah
22:07:38 <ehirdiphone> bool -> ()
22:07:41 <ehirdiphone> only one
22:07:54 <ehirdiphone> \b.tt
22:08:09 <ehirdiphone> Or A->B?
22:08:26 <ehirdiphone> oh wait
22:08:28 <oerjan> B -> A
22:08:32 <ehirdiphone> A needs two elements
22:08:46 <ehirdiphone> \().true, \().false
22:08:49 <ehirdiphone> not bigger
22:09:25 <oerjan> of course not. for infinite cardinalities in ZFC, A^2 always has the _same_ size as A
22:09:40 <ehirdiphone> "at least" two
22:09:46 <ehirdiphone> Not more :P
22:10:09 <ehirdiphone> |unit -> A| = |A|, surely.
22:10:10 <oerjan> erm i thought you were still confused about A -> B vs. B -> A
22:10:31 <ehirdiphone> Just use arrow notation to restate it :p
22:10:34 <oerjan> A^B is a notation for (B -> A)
22:10:47 <ehirdiphone> I'm confused though.
22:11:03 <ehirdiphone> Oh larger than B
22:11:06 <ehirdiphone> ic ic
22:11:16 <ehirdiphone> Cool.
22:11:26 <oerjan> it's intuitive based on cardinalities, |B -> A| = |A|^|B| in ZFC
22:11:53 <ehirdiphone> So maybe type theory "cardsets" — canonical types of a certain card are

22:12:46 -!- augur has joined.
22:12:55 <ehirdiphone> Except what would the last look like...
22:13:23 <oerjan> it presumably could only look at finitely many N for each function
22:13:36 <ehirdiphone> Induction?
22:13:48 <oerjan> oh maybe
22:14:13 <ehirdiphone> Admittedly that's propositions, not booleans, but...
22:14:23 <ehirdiphone> Easy enough to do afaict
22:14:37 <ehirdiphone> Just set P := (=== True)
22:14:55 <ehirdiphone> But you can't have Prop -> Bool
22:15:01 <ehirdiphone> So no not induction
22:15:36 <oerjan> oh
22:17:15 <oerjan> it just feels, intuitively, like if your (N -> Bool) -> Bool function does not recognize its argument somehow (and wouldn't something like the halting problem prevent it from doing so in general) then it cannot really do anything better than testing specific N values
22:17:40 <ehirdiphone> (P z \/ ~P z) -> (forall n, (P n -> P (s n)) /\ (~P n -> ~P (s n))) -> (forall n, P n) \/ (forall n, ~P n)
22:17:48 <ehirdiphone> Excluded middle lol
22:18:11 <ehirdiphone> oerjan: Yeah
22:18:57 <ehirdiphone> that induction would work
22:19:21 <ehirdiphone> say B x := if x then Unit else Bottom
22:19:24 <ehirdiphone> then

22:21:24 <ehirdiphone> oerjan: So we can do induction
