My abstract algebra book just called out people who complain about “imaginary numbers.”
“This terminology has led generations of students to view the complex numbers with more skepticism than the real numbers. Actually, all numbers, such as 1, 3, PI, -3, and i are inventions of our minds. There is no physical entity that is the number 1. If there were , it would surely be in a place of honor in some great scientific museum.”
My book is sassy as fuck.
