1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + ⋯ = −1/12 [day 23]

- 1/12

A magnificent number.

The reason is that there is this;

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + ⋯ = −1/12


If I had life to do over again, I often think that I would be a physicist. I would want to work on the theoretical aspects of string theory. I find it so provocative that that I am almost tempted to take it up late in life.

There is such a gentleness to it, that it is exciting and  attractive to me.

I am not the only one that thinks that.

Me too. I just love thinking about things like the nano seconds before the big bang and and other special things. Its just that Newtonian and Eisteinian physics seem so obvious.
