I have often been intrigued by the concept of the number i. It is not part of the negative, positive, limitless/irrational, or nuetral numbers. Therefore I see it as a different root from 0 (there is 0, then there are the positive numbers, the negative numbers, (both which root from 0 (ie 0 is the limit))and then there's i and similar number groups). other roots from 0 besides i are cuberoot(-1) ithroot(i) etc. what do you guys think? Anybody have something to say? Maybe add something they think is very peculiar about mathematics? I realize the thread name isn't very accurate... oh well.
