February 16 Day 345: Transcription Errors 2.0

Three dictionary entries with a purple stick figure screaming

Automatic transcriptions of Zoom recordings can occasionally miss the mark. I’m just going to leave this here and see if anyone one can figure out the statement of the Theorem that Zoom transcribed as follows:

Durham sandpoint suddenly G one g to be groups and suppose that you want his own workplace.

Do you energy to his homework, so if Jesus element of view and such as Jesus finite.

Then features G divides G

Zoom transcription (Punctuation and capitalization as provided by the transcription service)

Zoom missed quite a bit and misinterpreted the rest. When does it decide to use capital G rather than lower case g? I can understand not knowing which one is correct mathematically when transcribing, but I would have expected the algorithm to remain consistent.

I will only provide a translation if the will of the readers demands it. Otherwise it will remain a mystery. Can you guess what was said?
