You are very welcome, Holden.  As you know, I had also been intrigued with the writings of, first Deleuze and Guattari (AntiOedipus [Schizoanalysis]) and even Badiou, but I had found that returning to fundamental theorems and working through the process of applying the theorems to be more satisfying than familiarizing myself with the jargon used by the critical theorists.  There is something about the writings of Husserl, Heidegger, and Srtre as well that have that difficult to follow jargon.  It is tempting to call it derogatory names, and yet I acknowledge that "postmoderrnism" can be interesting.   

You know I try to be as honest and clear as possible.  There is a certain kind of mathematics that keeps me grounded, while some kinds of philosophy seems to be a web of words.   I would prefer to at least be clear and coherent (and appear rather simple-minded) than to appear quite sophisticated but make no sense whatsoever to the man of the street.
I am no authority on critical theory, but I do know a thing or two about "school mathematics" --- and with that I have had some experience, although I have no social status as any kind of "credentials."

I just wanted to share some notes so you coould see how cumbersome it would be to write nCr or (n r) ... Writing on paper with pen or pencil is so much clearer (to me).

We both have different times when we check in here, so rather than upload all the notebooks, I can see which ones might be of interest to you.    I have gotten great satisfaction in studying such things.
