I feel that I did the right thing in coming for this last lecture (also because of Mr. Sim's outfit!), although it will not be tested two weeks later. The topic was about Cardinality and Infinity. It was an inspiring lecture although really mind-blowing. How can there be as many odd/even integers as both odd and even integers!? I found the answer today. Still finding it hard to accept, but one day I will stumble upon a greater revelation. Today is the day I am seeing some sense in Cantor's argument, when slightly less than a month ago, I read and read the Wikipedia page and I could only say "Given a list of real numbers in a given interval, I can always come up with a real number that is not in the list." Now I bridged the link between this "incompleteness" and the "how" of all this. All in all, I think I did actually enjoy learning about discrete mathematics.
