To keep in line with chronology it would have to be some ratio of language handover from oldest living to youngest to whom it must be relevant and socially worthwhile to care about maintaining a massive mountain of health care records.

As an example, would a 5,000 year old have anything in common with a modern day English speaking teenager and need to maintain any interest? Chances are if they are 5,000 it is probably because they grew out of all that young retarded shit and left it behind for good.

There is something infinite about the world.

Tolstoy, a man infinitely more intelligent than you and I, knew this intuitively well before these advances.

Whether the multiverse is true, or whether the big bounce is real, either way, there is something infinite about the world.

These are the only two viable options. And both yield infinity of some stripe.

So I'm studying CS at a university ranked in the low 50's. I feel I did pretty good for myself considering I barely graduated high school and flunked out of CC when I was 18-20 years old (I'll be 30 when I finish my BS) and compared to my younger days I actually have drive and ambition now. And I was thinking if I try hard and earn a 3.7 or so GPA in my BS I can do my MS CS at some prestigious university or some shit. But I didn't realize aid is not given as often to masters students and they are frequently considered cash cows. Considering I'll be graduating from my BS with only about 5k debt if I get accepted to somewhere on the lines of Columbia or Princeton should I go 50k debt for it? I mean if worse comes to worse I'll probably just do a online masters at Georgia Tech since the acceptance rate is somewhat high and the cost is like 9k. But I'd greatly prefer to do my MS in person. What do?

Sure, if they're 23, and never left college in the first place, but it's pretty lame dragging that stuff into your mid to late 20s. I know people who got degrees in Higher Education just because they liked the college town vibe and never wanted to leave. Getting to make $35K and effectively stay in college seems cool when you're 25, but wait a few years. Also, the current social environment makes it much more difficult to chill and fuck undergrads.

>why do you need instant rendering

Imagine spending 5 hours typing up a paper and you go to click render and a bunch of red text and shit pops up because you forgot one { and now the rest of your fucking paper is also italicized because you left out another $. Also imagine being balls deep into a 10,000 page paper and it takes minutes to render a simple word.

LaTeX is entirely impractical for fast typing. Instant rendering with microsoft word is great for catching errors immediately and visualizing what you're typing. Also, aligning equations, using matrices, etc. aren't a bitch like LaTeX makes it. Also, you can insert images quickly and move them around/format them freely. Everything is clicks away instead of typing in some dumb fucking code. I love how LaTeX faggots like to act like they're learning to code when all they're doing is overcomplexifying and obfuscating simple tasks that Word chads take microseconds to do.Face it, given an arbitrary mathematics paper, a Wordchad will be able to copy it much faster than some LaTeX cuck.

Not using 100 or 1000 degrees, bur rather 360.
Not starting trig functions at the top of the unit circle and going around clockwise.
Not using turns as our primary method for looking at angles.
Not using base 2 as our counting system.
Not measuring radians with tau.
?
It wears on me. I may be autistic enough that when I learn to code I'll create something to convert everything to binary.

Also, have mathematicians (or other people) ever used Greek letters to write English (or other languages) as a kind of code or joke? (For example, spelling "product" as πρoduct)

Cool idea, but that translation from binary to 26-ary is very costly to do in your head. If you want to end up with a number 26-ary to make mnemonic you could use 26-ary in the first place.
