Question: hey jf- have you ever come across the idea of "math loops"

    Is that like a theoretical mobius strip?

    well...it was a recent video with terrance howard @12m 33s (
    youtu.be/PNOK1Is-eoU?t=753 that sparked our interest...maybe you realized it before? but new to us...heh

    I dunno, that whole sqrt(2) property is interesting enough (sqrt(2)/2 = 1/sqrt(2), which seems really odd until you multiply each side by sqrt(2)...). but to really blow your mind you have to go to e^(i*pi)+1 =0, that one is crazy.

    at any rate, there are tons of interesting things in math for sure! most of it is old news.

    hmmmmm.... the star races apparently use base12 math... whatever outcomes that means... worth noting perhaps.. =) cheerz!

    haha I thought about that video more and how much nonsense it really is. e.g. at youtu.be/PNOK1Is-eoU?t=880 - "any number below 2 and it will go to infinitely small, any number above 2 and it will go infinitely large" .. well yeah, because you're dividing by 2. Divide by the other number and then it has the same property. e.g. (sqrt(X)^3)/X = sqrt(X). If you assign Y=sqrt(X), this is the same as writing (Y^3)/(Y^2)=Y, which is basic algebra.

    is that terrance howard clip from a movie with nicholas cage in it btw?

    tbch- am not sure about anything anymore...this life appears (2me) as a nonsensible movie full of crooks & gangsters + a few heroes thrown in for good measure & entertainments! LOL
