comment Interpreting the Famous Five equation
A couple of quotes on this equation from people who seem to have given it serious thought. Benjamin Pierce "Gentlemen, it is absolutely paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don't know what it means. But we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth." Lukoff & Nunez "The expression makes sense if, but only if, we understand that mathematics consists of the metaphorical extension of familiar notions into unfamiliar areas."
