IMPORTANT COMPOUND ARTICLES
Differential Calculus, (Part I.)
Calculus is stupid. Calculus is for extroverts. It’s either totally
easy, or you learn calculus. Calculus is about thinking —-wait
that’s for philosophers.
The origin is a variable. The derivative is the angle of a line —-
that’s a small thing somehow, however, isn’t it? The process
might be unlimited. Even the opposite mathematics has its limits.
It also may have no function. There are no opposites in calculus:
there are only functions. Structures are imaginary. Applied
calculus is the tough part—for which you have your handy
You can’t be on the side of calculus—- Calculus just IS. One thing
to know is that calculus always has a power. If you input zero you
get zero, just like in algebra.
Advanced concepts in calculus:
1. Everything of value is outside calculus.
2. Maybe +3.
3. Calculus for all integers.
That’s just an idea.
It’s arbitrary in God’s logic is one of the first things I learned.
Even now in calculus there is a division between professors who
teach calculus as intuition and those that teach it as pure
mathematics. Ultimately there may be more than one way to do
calculus but remember, calculus is stupid , or you’re a genius.
Towards the end of his life, Leibniz lamented: what’s human
about calculus? So, calculus does have a downside. I’ll leave that
as a puzzle.
Concluding Remarks of the First Lesson
Sometimes we think calculus is a disease. Sometimes we think it
is not logical at all. But mostly we think it is a highly useful
thinking tool. Perhaps you’ll side with the Leibniz who thought it
was inhuman, or perhaps you’ll side with the Leibniz who brought
it upon himself to invent calculus.
Integral Calculus (Part II.)
Wrong! Doubly wrong! Specifics don't matter. Form a hypothesis,
then throw it away! Apply the existing hypothesis, be
conventional. Get it right! It concerns science! Be scientific!
Clouds are clocks! Simplify always! Stay distanced from your
work. Or pull an Einstein. Know. Philosophy is contraband. The
rest is history. Further on antiderivatives
Posterior Calculus (Part III.)
Now, I told you it wasn't about philosophy, but it is! All you need
to know at first is Delta V. Whatever you interpret from is
analytic a posteriori. Because you know you will get what
results—- You have to begin somewhere, so you begin with the
effect of an unseen cause. The cause is analytic. Delta V. is when
you attach an effect to a cause—-And you call it —- what do you
call it? Analytic. The rest is logic… I’m sure you can figure it out.
It depends on the case.
Applied Calculus (Part IV.)
Advanced calculus, also called applied calculus, is summarized by
a particular range of modes or conceptual functions:
Range: "And other languages besides English" (extending the
Importance: Bounded or Unbounded, Finite or Infinite.
Definition or No Definition.
Conditions or Laws (parameters).
Identity: special function or no special function.
Creativity: "Unless we change the function".
Now a concluding remark we might owe to Immanuel Kant:
"For every dupe there is something doubtful...
For every doubt there is something dutiful."

Michael's Calculus (Part VII).
Calculus --> (Preamble) --> Mathematicians think they're right
but they're always wrong --> There's nothing left except to not
be right, except to be 'wrong'. Wrong qualified this way is really
right, but will never (except rarely) admit it.
We're trying to be fair (integrate) --> (mathematicians are always
right) --> Mathematicians are almost always right, but this time
they're wrong --> If we integrate, it will disintegrate. This is a
disaster. We have to accept the information as we find it.
Now we have a new function to map out --> (What are we going to
do?) --> We can't try mathematics. We already tried that if we
know what we're doing. -->We can do something new with
mathematics. Something creative and original. It sounds
hopeless. So we just give up, and work where we started.
Now, there's something wrong with our data. The equation
doesn't match up --> (Is there something wrong?) --> The math
can't be wrong unless there's something wrong with the data,
right? Wrong! The math can be wrong! --> Well, we can't start
over. We have to accept part of the equation is right, because if
it's wrong, it's the data that's wrong. But, we must admit, we were
completely wrong! That's how to be right.
The formula works! Then how did we get it right? --> (Have we
thought about this before?) --> We got it wrong A LOT OF
TIMES! Remember, mathematicians are always wrong! --> So,
this time we got it right! So what! Now we are a mathematician,
and now we have to be very careful. We are now fully responsible
for everything we do! This is calculus! Sometimes its wrong to be
right! You have to feel wrong to get it right!
NOTE: This writing is designed to teach "The Intuitive Calculus"
and hopefully will jump-start knowledge of calculus, but is BY NO
MEANS a standalone guide to calculus. Ownership and use of a
textbook as well as academic instruction are critical expectations
in developing a real knowledge of calculus, and the significant
algebraic and trigonometric aspects have been glossed over in
this writing. Hopefully this will make the "Intuitive Calculus"
easier to grasp at every level of education than most academic
treatments of the calculus, however similar they pretend to be to
the Intuitive Calculus.
