CrimsonMoon: Something to discuss with Natasha? Marriage proposal!?...probably not. Might be about the implementation of the new education system.

ResidentialPsycho: Such is the way of dogma.... Wait! Winnie the Pooh is a girl?! Well, she is named "Winnie." ....Looks like the original one is considered female while the books the cartoon was based on refer to the bear as male. What a conundrum.

thedeadtellstories: You're right, and it didn't only happened in science field, basically most ppl have difficulty in accepting things that way beyond their knowledge if they don't see the proof right in front of their eyes. When I was 10, it took me a while to accept that piglet is a freakin male and pooh is female 😂

Krebert: Thanks, that makes it worth having written this little comment series.
One thing I want to mention is that I actually learned most of that in a Philosophy of Science series of classes I took as electives in college. When comparing the explanations from those classes to the explanations from my younger brother who was a physics major, I realized that the ability to *understand* and the ability to *explain* don't necessarily coexist. If your dad is able to explain these kinds of concepts to you in an easy-to-understand manner, then you're quite lucky since that's a rare talent he has.Throne of Magical Arcana · C420
KittCat: I love reading you-smart-people-explanations of things I otherwise would have zero interest in and never try to understand unless I started this book lol. Especially when I could just get my dad to explain it to me when I still don't understand after reading 🤷

Krebert: It's Lobachevsky's Hyperbolic Geometry. The "It's just in your imagination" part is referring to it being non-Euclidian geometry.
That means that one of Euclid's Postulates is changed and then the rest of the geometry system is constructed around these new premises.
The word "Postulate" is important here, referring to an "assumption" or a "given". That means that it's one of the few rules that we "take to be true" before deriving the rest of geometry based on those assumptions. All math systems need a set of "startup rules" called axioms (or postulates) that are simply taken as "true" and then, if those axioms are complete enough, you can derive a math system from it which may or may not be useful, but *will* be internally consistent.
If you want a math system to be useful in the real world, you would obviously want the postulates or axioms upon which you build the math system to correspond to the real world, right? Therefore, in Euclidean geometry, the axioms/postulates are things that seem "obvious", but have to be "assumed" or "given" rather than "proved" or "derived".
For example: the Parallel Postulate: For any given line R and point P not on R, there is exactly one line which passes through P and is parallel to R.
If you draw it out on paper, this seems obvious, but it turns out that it's not possible to "prove" this using just the other axioms of Euclidean geometry. It must be "given". That means that it's possible for an internally consistent geometry system to exist in which the parallel postulate is *not* true or is different.
"But isn't that just playing around with your imagination?" you ask. If you take a piece of paper, draw a line, then draw a dot next to the line, it's quite obvious that you can only draw one parallel line through that dot. So how would a geometry in which you can draw at least two parallel lines through that one dot be possible?
In reality, it *seems* obvious that you can't just change the basic rules of the world and expect the resulting math system to be useful, but it turns out that there are in fact situations in which alternate geometries are not just useful, but essential.
Relativity Theory, for example, is highly dependent upon non-Euclidean geometries. The reason for that is that Euclidean geometry is for "flat" space, like paper on a desk, whereas real space is actually not flat (Euclidean), but "hyperbolic", while space-time is described by yet another geometry.
Alternate geometries as a concept is important because is leads us toward "Minkowski space", a four-dimensional "manifold" instead of three-dimensional Euclidean space, which is the foundation for Special Relativity and the concept of a unified space-time with inertial reference frames.Throne of Magical Arcana · C420
