okay, here's a genuine question Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVY 41968088[View]

Can math be art?

I've always contended that art and mathematics are distinctly separate because of the key difference is math being demonstrably objective, whereas art is pretty much entirely subjective.

What are you guys thoughts on this?

and yes I originally saw this on /lit/

>Art is the expression of individuals, not the medium of expression.
That's exactly my point. The math is the medium, and the application is the expression.

Skinny!Trips0zvVM 41968494

I don't see the need for the distinction though, since in any other medium it wouldn't be made. Nobody would say that the art a painter makes would only be their brushstrokes and not the actual painting. In much the same way I can make sound with a trumpet, or any other instrument, and not be making art/music, it is possible to use math without making art. So once we get to the point of agreeing that the use of math counts as art I don't see the point in saying that in this instance the medium is not part and parcel with the work.

Reav 41968550

As always it depends purely on your definitions of stuff.
What is art?
It's not exactly a question that is overly easily answered, nor is any answer that pretends to be absolute likely to last more than a short while.

Personally i think art is about meaning (own consequence in time and space), turning this question into something like "can math have meaning?", to which the answer is yes of course.

Grade school teachers probably teach that way to make things easier and to keep students from screwing up division and subtraction, but since in upper level math, division is pretty much always written fractionally and subtraction is thought of as just adding a negative number, the order doesn't matter anymore, thus why there's not really a convention for it.

It's more about correctly reducing and expanding terms in expressions than doing things in any set order.



Reav 41968549

In principle division and multiplication have equal priority.
But practically the division sign indicates that it is in fact a substitution of a more complex symbol, making it more akin to the brackets in its nature.
So effectively it should be seen as
6 divided by two-times-three and as such result in 1.

But more seriously: Brackets exist precisely for this sort of ambiguity.

Also marzipan.

You should come to the US during the Summer. Our big warehouse stores like Sam's Club and Costco have the Xmas stuff up in mid July. Toys and decorations.

The Hallmark greeting card company has retail stores where you can buy Xmas stuff like tree ornaments all year round.

At least on the west side of Britain (Norfolk) they had more Halloween sales than Christmas.

I just finished Fallout Equestria by Kkat last night. Anonymous 41967982[View]

It took me a few months, and the last 60% at least was just these past less-than-thirty days.

Much of the story is ruined by how... I don't know how to describe it other than "cringey": Littlepip's relationship with Homage. These are two ponies who barely know each other and suddenly Homage just throws herself at the Stable Dweller just so the protagonist can have a love interest. I feel absolutely nothing for their incredibly-shittily-written relationship. I detest Littlepip everytime she annoyingly narrates everytime she has a "pervy" thought on her hair-trigger.

There's other criticisms that I have, and I did get one aspect of the above complaint spoiled for me before that character was introduced I saw a brief glimpse of fanart depicting Littlepip snuggling with a grey mare with a blue mane.

The first 500 or 600 pages were pretty fantastic and gave me Game of Thrones vibes, but in a first-person perspective, so maybe more like a smaller-in-scope (Than Game of Thrones) character drama in a gritty setting, like how I imagine The Walking Dead might be like.

But then... when I have to read ...those... parts, the writing just gets cringier and cringier at those moments.

That being said, I had already fancasted voice actors for a TV series and made a little instrumental theme in my head for it to go with an ambient one-to-two-minute opening theme that would start at every episode.

So, yeah, it could be a way better series if it was heavily adapted.

Protip: Never shoehorn a love story into a plot just because.

It's fucking stupid, and the #1 reason I don't read fan fiction.

Lisbon!StarMyMnao 41968025

I got to the part where Pip is going on and on about just how darned mad she was and I stopped reading. The only decent part up to that point was the narration after she just left the vault. The personality 180 where she goes from a naive pacifist to a homicidal maniac was bad but the "I WAS SO MAD I WAS ANGRY" part did me in.

Chewy (Flutter) 41968462



I havent read FoE but fanfiction in general tends to be really bad because its usually written by people who werent really writers in the first place, they just see everyone else writing and have an idea they want to write too but they do it without practicing or learning much.

I used to love to write and I still want to, but I really didnt realize how mediocre my storytelling was until I started reading classic books that blew my mind.

but the good thing is that rather than giving up, Im gonna keep reading so I can shape an idea of how I want my writing to be

is it really? Most of what I've seen trends to be much older, early 90's at best for some, but a lot of 60's, 70's, and 80's with a smattering of the early part of the 90's at best

but i'm no guru
