    That might sound weird, or impossible, but yes, it will display that page that way.
    Wouldn't it also display pages that shouldn't be noted (i.e., invalid content) with... "hey you should take note of this page"?

    If so, this brings us back to my point that nothing helpful could be invented/discovered with the software without a person reviewing and testing each page to determine its value.

    This isn't to distract from the software of course, I'm not even sure how I got on this "side" issue.

      • I'd be willing to bet that Bob's software invention would display a statement to the effect that this software does NOT do what Bob says it will do. And that it will display that statement... upside down.

          kmoney, since running the program once will display every page of every book ever written, how could that be useless? The philosophical implications alone are significant. No?

              Yes. To bad I didn't have that output prior to writing the program. Could have saved a lot of time Jamie!

                1. Can this program separate provable mathematical statements from non-provable ones? (I would assume so based on #4)
                No Brother Vinny, but thanks for asking. The program itself is the mathematical proof that universal human creativity is not infinite but finite.

                Sure. It might need to be recompiled though. (The CMs problems notwithstanding )

                And BV, you can be the one to answer your second question.

                Huh. I can see why you'd think that Vinny. But no, my Dell XPS M1710 runs it just fine. It takes a while to run through though.

                Thanks Brother Vinny. Yes, it was a good mystery that led to Display being written!

                • Some posts back, Stripe had guessed that the program was based on a lot of monkeys, that is, on an infinite number of monkeys. Of course it's not, and they couldn't hold a banana to the output of Display.exe. At that time, Stripe wrote:
                  If that's the case then I can show him wrong. Prepare to hang your broadcasting career on the capriciousness of my whim, Pastor Enyart!
                  He typed with a smile on his fingers

                  Now, after looking at the code (apparently a couple of times), Stripe wrote:

                  Wow. Stripe. Thanks. Now that I've posted the source code, and a downloadable "lite" version of the program, I'd like to post two more things when I get the chance: an example output from the full version (per your request also kmoney), and a full explanation of the program. And I hope to post that stuff in the Opening Post.

                  Yes. And it's not.

                  • Bob, I have a question.

                    On your own computer, how long would the program have to run to its completion?

                    • To the two CMs...

                      Hi guys.

                      CM & CM, huh! The PCs I've run the "lite" version on have run it just fine (we're running it on Windows 7 mostly). I've just emailed the downloadable link to friends who are running other operating systems and I've asked them to let me know if it runs okay. Feel free to let me know what OS and version you're running, and what error msg you've received.

                      Thanks!

                        Yes. And with birth dates and dates of death presented accurately beside each descendant's name and photo.

                          Hi Tom! Hey, don't be so hot to trot into the studio and take over. At least, not quite yet, and certainly not over Display's features!

                          Thanks though, for being willing

                          • Right, so, if this is a metaphor how long will it go on, and if "not," then when does Bob sell this miraculous product off and retire?

                            • Granite, your question about whether this is a metaphor is answered (in the negative) in the OP and here:

                              Regarding MR's comment about Display.exe being perhaps a metaphor for open theism, the program is not a metaphor but a mathematical proof. But to the extent that philosophers or theologians could use it as an argument, aa has a point:

                              Upon considering the somewhat unnerving philosophical implications of the observations that Display generates (or that may come from any number of other sources, which I'm hoping this thread may eventually help to discover), I believe that Calvinists and Arminians will be the first to use this in defense of their theology, and certainly against open theism.

                              An open theist, wondering about my motives, asked me: "If by appearances, Display.exe will be more readily used as an argument for those who promote a settled future (as opposed to an open future), then why promote it?" I answered, because it is true. And acknowledging truth, regardless of how it cuts, brings us closer to the one who is Truth.

                              • Whatever you say. So when's this puppy going to change the world as we know it? Expected release date? Expected date for bidding war to begin? And are you concerned at all about the implications this technology poses, assuming it exists and works as described?
