Talbot then gave the young man a letter to the commander of one of the English vessels of war cruising in the firth, requesting him to put the bearer ashore at Berwick, with a pass to proceed to ------shire. Clearly this mathematical simplification does not realistically describe the actual phenomenon of how people develop into higher levels of consciousness, as many other factors come into the picture to complicate the situation, not the least of which is that simply increasing the number of hours meditating may not have a corresponding effect of shifting into a higher level of consciousness, the personal intention of the person meditating may be a significant variable that needs to be taken into account, etc.

Cantor called pluralities that are too large to be considered as a set inconsistent multiplicities (Cantor 1932). It is quite technical to define an arithmetic group, but it is easy to give some examples that already give you some flavour: $\mathrm{SL}_n(\mathbb{Z})$ as a lattice in $\mathrm{SL}_n(\mathbb{R})$, similarly $\mathrm{Sp}_{q}(\mathbb{Z})$ in $\mathrm{Sp}_q(\mathbb{R})$ or more elaborate constructions where you start from an algebraic number field and an algebra over that field and take some subgroup of the automorphism group of that algebra.

Not all of them are suitable for the mathematically illiterate though, and thus cannot simply be considered popular science. For more information see the Combinatorics in Birmingham page. He set up a lamentable howl. ``If that doleful day should come, while Duncan Macwheeble had a boddle, it should be Miss Rose's. The public, and even the party of whom he shared the fall, sympathized little in the disappointment of this selfish and interested statesman; and he retired to the country under the comfortable reflection, that he had lost, at the same time, character, credit, and,---what he at least equally deplored,---emolument.

For example, in Book I of the Elements, the demonstration of Proposition 16 (``in any triangle, if one of the sides be produced, the exterior angle is greater than either of the interior and opposite angles'') is a chain of syllogisms with Postulate 2, Common Notion 5, and Propositions 3, 4 and 15 (``if two straight lines cut one another, they make the vertical angles equal to one another'') occurring as premises. Occasionally, indeed, when such a consummation seemed inevitable, a watchful old grandam, with her close cap, distaff, and spindle, rushed like a sibyl in frenzy out of one of these miserable cells, dashed into the middle of the path, and snatching up her own charge from among the sun-burnt loiterers, saluted him with a sound cuff, and transported him back to his dungeon, the little white-headed varlet screaming all the while, from the very top of his lungs, a shrilly treble to the growling remonstrances of the enraged matron.

We discuss these developments in the following subsections. Linear Diophantine Equation: An equation of the form ax + by = c, where a, b, c are integers such that a and b are not both zero, is called a linear Diophantine equation, due to a mathematician Diophantine.
