This could be the scariest prank ever, if I had someone to play it on: Step 1. Trick the victim into graphing this slightly modified version of Tupper’s SelfReferential Formula: in the region, say , , where n= 381025769433284440392319964900539302335 336506037124716737876327885349255244053 … Continue reading
This is Tupper’s SelfReferential Formula: what makes it interesting is that the set of points , for which the inequality holds, in the rectangle , , you will get this: Turns out that the graph of the formula resembles the … Continue reading
