Hi,
Ill have to disagree with that, as Pythagoras used a system that describes real things not mysticism. Only not understanding his work would prompt such a judgement therefore maybe another look at his work would help? this time with a filter ignoring any 'religous mystical' content that may carry you away from method.

In my opinion todays math is more mystic when we assume its ok to round numbers off. NOw that is magic! 'poof' and the problems gone. ;)
Example: The NEW Periodic table. We see now why experements were not as repeatable as the establishment would claim. Just round it off! its ok, not mystic at all.

Please after xmas if time allows give us an example of the so called mysticism in the valid math work of Pythagoras? as i see no holes, yes it has relations with the caballa etc though it is possible that maybe you understand that system very little also? any part you choose ill show you how real and usable it is.

Not challenging the work of Parmenides as great though will defend Pythagoras if someone is not versed in his method therefore states such misconception.

thanks

lee
