An Autobiography of Maths (English Project Class XI WBCHSE) requested by Diksha

I have received quite a number of requests for writing an autobiography prior to this and as per the rule emulated by me,I would not write your project for you but I could help you with the guidelines and I already have one written out there so you can take a look,at the first place.
I could further help you with your doubts about how to write one but this is a topic I never expected a student of Class XI to send to me.Most things,commodifiable and smooth have their beginnings and ends,birth and death but time does not.That is why I chose time as the topic when I wrote my project last year.These days,a lot of thoughts relating to stars,distance,reality,hypothesis,imagination,spirals,curves,representation,capacity,unit are crowding my mind very often.So,this is a topic that I cannot resist to write on.

I extend my warm regards and gratitude to the Respected Principal and the insightful subject teacher to make it possible to work on this project. The project genre is interesting and has helped me to exercise my philosophical and writing skills.
I have enjoyed working on this topic and I am thankful to the subject teacher for allowing me to work on an otherwise unusual topic. I also thank the authority for providing the necessary time in order to complete this project.

This is to certify that this project has been made by Titas Biswas of Class XI on the topic ‘Autobiography’ under the guidance of our English teacher ................ and has been completed it sucessfully. 
Yours truly

What is an autobiography?

An autobiography is a written account of the life of a person written by that person. In other words, it is the story that a person wrote about themselves.
The word has Greek origin.
There are but few and scattered examples of autobiographical literature in antiquity and the Middle Ages. In the 2nd century bce the Chinese classical historian Sima Qian included a brief account of himself in the Shiji (“Historical Records”). It may be stretching a point to include, from the 1st century bce, the letters of Cicero (or, in the early Christian era, the letters of St. Paul), and Julius Caesar’s Commentaries tell little about Caesar, though they present a masterly picture of the conquest of Gaul and the operations of the Roman military machine at its most efficient. Generally speaking, autobiography in its modern, Western sense can be considered to have emerged in Europe during the Renaissance, in the 15th century. One of the first examples was written in England by Margery Kempe.

I was born when you began to think for the first time,when history was born,when light years stormed through you - in the cradle of logic,in the womb of realisations,I was born. I was an idea,developed to be an adventure down there in the mystery of your mind.I imagined and I was.On the shadow of the wings of eternity,I shall continue throughout the courses of joyride and often,in the galactic spaces of oblivion,I found that I was the language of fate and that I could overwrite it,genuinely being the only one born with this ability.

I am a set of well-determined collections, of objects that are called members, or elements, of the set,exclusively with sets, so the only sets under consideration are those whose members are also sets. 
The theory of the hereditarily-finite sets, namely those finite sets whose elements are also finite sets, the elements of which are also finite, and so on, is formally equivalent to arithmetic. So, the essence of set theory is the study of infinite sets, and therefore it can be defined as the mathematical theory of the actual—as opposed to potential—infinite.

The notion of a collection is as old as counting, and logical ideas about classes have existed since at least the “tree of Porphyry” (3rd century C.E.). Thus it becomes difficult to sort out the origins of the concept of set. But sets are neither collections in the everyday sense of this word, nor “classes” in the sense of logicians before the mid-19th century. Ernst Zermelo, a crucial figure in our story, said that the theory had historically been “created by Cantor and Dedekind”. This suggests a good pragmatic criterion: one should start from authors who have significantly influenced the conceptions of Cantor, Dedekind, and Zermelo. For the most part, this is the criterion adopted here. Nevertheless, as every rule calls for an exception, the case of Bolzano is important and instructive, even though Bolzano did not significantly influence later writers.

Some spoke of the sense of the actual finite while there were some intellectual tendencies that promoted the acceptance of the actual infinite. In spite of warning that the infinite can only be a manner of speaking, some minor figures and three major ones preceded in fully accepting the actual infinite in mathematics. Those three authors were active in promoting a set-theoretic formulation of mathematical ideas, with Dedekind's contribution in a good number of classic writings (1871, 1872, 1876/77, 1888) being of central importance.

At the core of all the concepts that constitute life,I am but the warmth,the soul to each. Of all that happens and does not,of all that is too beautiful to be true,of all that is so predominantly existent that existent ceases to be in front of it,I am the language used for expression.
For all that comes,is to come or is to be overcome,I am the fluidity.I am the subject and the description of itself,the logic of language and the language of logic.I am the thrust,the momentum and the inertia,the units,sub-units and totality.I am one and all.I am the moment that holds and gives birth to life and death.I am the messiah and the receipient of the message and the intermediary.I am the cordial fold of sound waves,I am the journey of vision,perception and observation.I am the convict and the criminal and the jurisdiction in myself.In the eternal now that strives,I shall continue to be.
