when can we expect full translation of Grothendieck's work?
I don't know French but I managed to translate 2 pages of EGA in half an hour, using my knowledge of Latin, Google Translate and some common sense, but I learn quick, so after 100 pages I should know all the French I need.. Should I translate it all, and LaTeXize it? My estimate is 1 year of hard work. I'm a 2. year math student
Also, I don't really care if he likes it or not. There were attempts to translate but Grothendieck refused to give permission
Comet ISON = Nibiru

COMET ISON HEADED STRAIGHT TOWARD EARTH IN MANY FRAGMENTS
Astronomers are marveling at the death and apparent resurrection of a comet that dove close to the sun on Thanksgiving.
Comet ISON passed within a million miles of the sun’s surface at 1:37 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday — by which time observers had already glumly concluded that the comet had disintegrated and vaporized.
ISON, which spent several billion years at the frigid edge of the solar system before starting a long journey toward the sun, had been billed as a possible “comet of the century.” Its demise seemed to be an anticlimactic ending to the story.
But “then it appears again,” said Karl Battams, an astrophysicist at the Naval Research Laboratory who has been observing the comet from Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona. “We see something come out.”
The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.
The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.

True faith is the next step in mankind's teleological journey towards absolute truth. The dialectic of intellectual history has culminated to this point in time, /sci/.
It has all become so clear: the vast unverified hypotheses of quantum physicists, the abysmal uncertainty of philosophers of mathematics and science, the incompleteness theorems and NP completeness. True faith is the humanity's next step in its hegelian discourse.
What does this mean? What are the implications of this?
Are the theists on the right track?
Adopt faith in God, adopt faith in the world, adopt faith in yourself, because if you remain tied to the obsolete nonsense that science preaches you'll be left behind like the alchemists and the mystics. Embrace your intellectual destinies, /sci/
A Model for a New Government

A New Government: Council based.
1.) Mail council
2.) Mathematics council
3.) Building council
4.) Science council
5.) Food council
6.) Brief, general council consisting of members of other councils.
There is no permanent council. Agreements are made by the workers of the council. To be specific:
- all of the workers in each of their assigned councils make rules for themselves.
- i.e. mail for mail, math for math, science for science
- the brief, general council is composed of members from the other councils
That is all. The format is clear and concise. Basic, so that those of lower IQ or breakers/destroyers are taken care of. We are a worker based and problem-solving based society. The work is problem-solving.
1.) Noam Chomsky
2.) Francis Fukuyama
