I never actually mentioned any of the other stuff that George has brought up, because I wasn't aware of it. I'm glad now, because I may have made the same mistake as George, and judge Johns true legacy by his earlier musings. That would have been a daft thing to do.

You may not have mentioned them but look at the content of the first post in this thread .That is what it is about . Some of us have read the later as well as the earlier stuff .

Ahh so you have only read the works on the "canon of number " etc , the canon you mistakenly thought was his .
Haven't read the book related to this thread either .
There's whole world of laughs awaiting you .
But before that try re-reading what Bob Forrest, a real mathematician has to say about Michells approach to math and the part ofthe canon .
