That's kids' stuff.  Here's Brouwer who should have changed the face of Mathematics with his twoities (he also denied the law of the excluded middle):


If his statement had contained any apparent meaning, maybe it could have done.  What are you suggesting should have been changed about mathematics? Such a vague statement is hardly going to make anyone inclined to change anything in a subject which is about being specific.

No amount of how-to information is going to work if you have the wrong mindset, the wrong guiding philosophies. Avoid losers like the plague, and gather with and learn from winners only.
