Brainstorm

January 12th, 2009, 4:11 AM

Have you ever come across strange random thoughts or brainstorms that something strange or mysterious could hold a much greater value in knowledge or physical existence?

(warning, serious mental brain-farts ahead)

It's mathematically impossible to find the square root of a negative number. This is because a square is the result of two equal numbers (which are called square root) and negative numbers can only be brought about by multiplying a positive number and a negative number. However, I hypothesize the existence of this "negative square root." There are two branching scales of integers off of zero, positive numbers and negative numbers. What if there was a 3rd scale unknown or incomprehensible to us? If there was, I'm sure the square root of a negative number would be the number in the "third scale." Maybe understanding such a thing could make us understand existence more?

Discuss/submit your own random thoughts. I'll probably come back with more brain-farts later.
