The equation of a circle.
Y = Mx + C

Y + b = Mx + c - q
But since the values B and Q are so munute, or cancle they are not included.

But this thread is the square root of that imaginary thread, logarithmically speaking.
This thread needed all six cybercoordinates to reach it. The imaginary/complex one required only five of them, paradoxical indeed. Proof of this lies in the fact that you cannot open both threads in the same window, without using the irattional cyber-e.

A good example of the problem with using an invented system to describe real phenomenon is to consider what math would have been like before the discovery of zero.
