There are several versions of the Berry paradox, the original version of which was published by Bertrand Russell and attributed to Oxford University librarian Mr. G. Berry. In the form stated by Russell (1908), the paradox notes that, "'The least integer not nameable in fewer than nineteen syllables' is itself a name consisting of eighteen syllables; hence the least integer not nameable in fewer than nineteen syllables can be named in eighteen syllables, which is a contradiction." I will soon write a critique of this paradox and, after that, a similar one for Cantor's diagonalization argument.

This application allows you to input multiple Traditional Chinese characters from an expanding list. A variety of information (such as stroke order, spelling and pronunciations, radical information, IDS, and English translations) will then be presented audiovisually per character, organized from top to bottom.

To begin with, I introduce the relevant survey (upon which Vermeersch reacted) by mentioning and discussing the (often contradictory) reporting thereof in (online consultable) news media. This includes manifold criticism of the quality of this survey. After this introduction, I present the reaction of philosopher Etienne Vermeersch upon a certain result of that survey, against which I utter criticism.

As Professor Keith Devlin has pointed out in his lecture "The Golden Ratio & Fibonacci Numbers: Fact versus Fiction", quite a number of people believe to notice Fibonacci/golden spirals or Fibonacci/golden ratios more often than that they are actually present. Is this case of Ed Pegg Jr.'s turmite (explicitly named "FibonacciSpiral.rle") such an example of wishful thinking? Or are we observing a true Fibonacci/golden spiral being constructed here, and if that's the case: how can we explain this phenomenon? Any explanation or thoughts would be appreciated.

This article documents an attempt to re-create a yangqin for my girlfriend and musician Chung-Yi Lan. The yangqin would be light-weight, and fit for occasions requiring a lot of improvised transportation such as busking. The 3D model which I have created for this purpose (and published under a "free" license), was the first downloadable 3D model of a yangqin, I presume.
