The true redpill is when you realize that in order to prove that (exists x:T,P x) -> Q, where Q is a sentence (not containing x as a free variable) and T is any type, it is never necessary to prove that there is actually an x in T such that P x.

In fact the sentence "(exists x:T,P x) -> Q" is logically equivalent to "forall x:T, (P x -> Q).

Discarding the math derived as a consequence of the existence of square roots (i.e. simply using them from the definition) under the pretext that "maybe there are no square roots" shows a lack of understanding of the hypothetical reasoning.

prove Q exists

>> No.9654233

Q:= Z x (N\{0})/~ (quotient set) where (a,b)~(c,d) iff ad=bd and Z = NxN / ~~ where (a,b) ~~ (c d) iff a+d = b+c.
operations on Z,Q on demand (you just have to check some compatibility conditions with the equivalence relationship above but calculations are what you think they are).

You're welcome.

f(x) = g(x) * g(x) = x * x is a continuous function, because g(x) = x is continuous. (property that comes from limit of sequences)

f(0) = 0, f(2) = 4

there must then exist a c for which 0 < f(c) = 2 < 4, i.e. c * c = 2 (intermediate value theorem)

Let (K,+,x) be a commutative ring with unit 1 and L:= K^2 (the cartesian product).
Is (a,b) and (c,d) are in K, define (a,b)+(c,d):= (a+c,b+d) and (a,b)*(c,d):= (ac-bd, ad+bc). Define also i:= (0,1). It turns out that (L,+,*) is also a commutative ring with unit = (1,0), the map f:x->(x,0) from K to L is an injective ring homomorphism, and for every x,y in K we have (x,y)= f(x)+ i * f(y) (since f i s injective, if we identify t and f(t) for every t, we get the more familiar notation (x,y) = x+i*y). Wed also have i*i = -1 from the definition.

In addition if K is a field and for every x in K, x^2 is different from -1, then L is also a field (for every a,b in K, we cant have a^2+b^2=0 otherwise we'd get a^2=-b^2 then (a/b)^2=-1 contradicting the above: that being said, you can check that (a/(a^2+b^2), -b/(a^2+b^2) ) is the inverse of (a,b) for every a,b in K.

Not all of it, no. Besides, the dualistic properties of nature immensely influenced Aristotle's Metaphysics.

>implying sqrt (2) can't exist because it's irrational in R.

There are some groups where sqrt (2) is rational. Therefore it exists even by your shitty definition.

No, it's the truth. If you actually care about knowledge and truth you will be a platonism.

It's the sidelength of a square of area 2. So 1.414^2=2. If you don't like it change your scale.
