I am reading and trying to understand a book called "One, Two, Three,
Infinity" by George Gamow. He refers to imaginary numbers and i = square
root of -1. I can't help thinking that what we call "real" numbers are'nt
real at all. They are not tangible, you can't go out into the yard and dig
a number up. Aren't real numbers just in our imagination too?
