    Quote: "" Just to throw in my 2 cents. After a certain point it would not be physically possible to "paint" the surface of the box. How could one put pain on a box that is smaller than an electron. This is not possible on the atomic level. Note this also keeps the paint outside of the box, it can't be filled, because the paint is too big.""


    This is where the Physic and the maths takes each one their way !!!

    Not because it is mathematically possible that it is physicaly

    It's called LaTex. I'm just becoming familiar with it myself. I found some pdf's online (simple google search) that serve as a useful reference.
    To get started, you might do what I did - click "reply with quote" (you can cancel if you don't actually want to reply) to see how others get write it.
    I also think there might also be some forums here, in MHF, that discuss it. If so, I can't speak to their value - I haven't looked at them (I still don't know my way around here all that well.)

    I didn't mean to offend. If you are really interested in this topic might I suggest you look into fractals. Sierpinski's triangle is very interesting. It has zero area, but its perimeter is infinite. (sound familar). Dimentionality and other properties are strange with fractals. Try a google search for Hausdorff dimention.

    Cheers,

    Re: It can be paint or not

    Fractal and any thing that is generated by applying a rule an infinite number of time always always fascinate me' -- I had noticed, it is the logo of this site, and it is what got me to click to come here the first time

    And no offense, .. I am in the engineering world,... And that's what every body around always answer me " Not interesting, its impossible. it would be smaller than an atom" .. Not interesting, you cannot build such large tower, it would collapse under its own weight" ...

    Just getting frustrating sometime
