A Mathematical Rehab

Ok. So the last post wasn’t very successful (I am not going to argue about the definition of successful here). My explanation of space wasn’t so good, because almost everything can be described as set with structure, according to mathematicians. Now I am probably irritating some Category Theory proponents as well. Oh well.

As a corrective remedy, I am going to spend some time in a mathematical rehab. You will be able to follow that here. I will probably start by using the spaces mentioned in that post to explain various mathematical concepts.

And, as for the definition of space, let’s just say that a space is a space because a mathematician says so. And I am happy that wikipedia is not that better from my post.
