MWresearch 40 Posted April 24, 2015 (edited) Well , let's say there's a bowling ball dropping in 3D space on some planet that follows the parabola -x^2+3. If a person was standing next to that bowling ball, where would they look in physical reality to see the solution -x^2+3=4? The solution is of course imaginary, but no where can a person physically see the solution +/- i. Edited April 24, 2015 by MWresearch 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

studiot 1834 Posted April 24, 2015 (edited) studiot Because if we count reals in order from 0 to1 we have counted an infinity of numbers. mwresearch just because we focus on the integers 0 and 1. You misread what I wrote Counting reals means counting every real, not just focusing on two of them. Edited April 24, 2015 by studiot 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

MWresearch 40 Posted April 24, 2015 You misread what I wrote Counting reals means counting every real, not just focusing on two of them. Counting a set of all reals does, but counting the specific integers 0 and 1 means nearly the opposite; it means specifically picking out the numbers 0 and 1 out of all numbers that exist. 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites
