Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX was very helpful.
To break it down, the cursive looking "d" is delta or change that happens in respect to something else. Change.
Cubed is 3D, 3 dementional. So it would be something that is 3 Dementional that brings change to something. In this case we are talking about a person, Dr. Who. So a person who brings change.
The funny looking "E", means the summation of. Like you have a string of numbers you are adding up. LIke 5+2+7+8 and you get the summation of it. Or 22. This is calculus so it could be describing events. So Could be a person who is bring change to an event or set of events. Like a doctor or a mentor. Someone helping you grow.
(Could be negative too. Like someone who commits murder. Etc. But the doctor is a good "man". So its a good thing.)
So you have a "person who brings change" to " an event or series of events" (x) -(thing, event to plug in) squared. Or a big change.
That's kind of cool.
That's what the Doctor does. ^_^
That's true, that the writer's really didn't give a clear name to him. I think the first writer, was trying to make the Doctor some mysterious person, that is kind of outside events, bigger than, and math would kind of describe it. And it sounded cool.
Since the doctor came from a war, war-torn zone, it would make sense that he wouldn't want his real name known, to protect himself. Kind of like how a spy takes on antimony to protect himself and operate.
It's a big like unmasking Batman, eh? (Maybe we should call him Bruce. ^_^)
You should check out this youtube "post".
They made it long before they would have the upcoming "name of the doctor" episode. My personal favorite is where you take the symbols literally and make them letters and get Pheet! It's a cute nick name. :)
One guy translated it as "The name that kills". I don't know where on earth he would get that. That would fit into the story line of the religion trying to prevent his name coming to light. (The religion almost sounds like a bunch of rabid Dr. Who fans.) XD
You know when a question gets answered, silence does fall. ^_^
