If I understood it right, they have built on Berlin and Kay’s earlier finding that each culture divides up and names the color spectrum in roughly the same way. They show there is a possible link with how foreground objects tend to be warmer colors (which are more readily communicable) versus background which tend to be “cool”. We have less need to label background objects, like the forest or the sky, than to label foreground objects, which tend to be warm. Our names for colors, they suggest, developed this way because we develop color words inasmuch as they are useful: “as cultures get more industrialized, they get more color words. First comes black and white (or light and dark), then red. Then a bunch of others.” There is an interesting analogy here with the development of language for numbers. […]

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 22:28:17 +0000http://numberwarrior.wordpress.com/?p=191#comment-17592[…] Pi is based on our decimal or base 10 system. The Sumerians used a base 60 number system and their version of Pi was 25/8 or 3.125. Some view 3.125 as an approximation or even a miscalculation of Pi. This is like […]

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 14:13:42 +0000http://numberwarrior.wordpress.com/?p=49#comment-17344The ACPO team produced Si 28 spheres with diameters of 9.375 Centimeters. The specific gravity of Si is 2.3296 gr cc. The Weight of the Si 28 sphere is 1000 grams. Therefore, the volume of the sphere is 429.26 cc. This gives the value of Pi at 3.1258 (3.125763).This is pretty close to Babylonian value of Pi. Will the Perfect Sphere of Si-28 give a Perfect Value of Pi?
