the trial…

12-ness and 10-ness (and all number-nesses) are not in space-time. The humans however, are. At least they are normally considered to be so…

If one decides to ‘reduce’ 12-ness and 10-ness to objects in the world perceived as ‘normal’ by these humans, and further, if one desires them to be yet even more reduced into identical objects in what is known as ‘reality’, then let us then ascribe to them the property generally known amongst them as ‘cubic’ and let us then use these ‘cubes’, sometimes known as dice, in the following court case:

These are the statements to be put to the people:

Prosecution:  “These 10 cubes are henceforce to be considered superior to these 12 cubes.”

Defence: “These 12 cubes are henceforth to be considered superior to these 10 cubes.”

Challenge: Set up a situation in which the pros and cons of this matter are considered and then judged by a jury of impartial citizens…

huatou: is 12 in the ‘real’ world ‘better’ than 10 ?
