1 + 1 [ 1 I wish to apologise to reader about not writing in Arabic as I have no means to do so. I was interested in the article, which contained abstract arguments concerning complex numbers and infinity, so I sought to put my thoughts in writing. To say that infinity, : = x is to introduce 2 different arguments both of which prove that, x + x ! 2x , 3x, or any other than : 1) If infinity = x, then x is undefined and it follows that it is not subject to mathematical assumptions and operations, and although not a singularity it exhibits some of its properties. Therefore to say, x + x = 2x, is like saying, x + y = 2x, 2y or 2xy. All of which would violates basic mathematics. The argument should be expressed as, x + y = : This holds true with either or both variables are :. If either or both variables change then the problem becomes one of dynamics, i.e. changes with time and the variables would require redefinition with each new value. A solution can be found, but life is too short! 2) If infinity = x, and x belongs to a defined set or a known group, then to say, x + x = 2x, is a gross misrepresentation of the initial assumption that infinity includes all constants beyond a specific set deemed practical to justify an argument. Here, the addition of any constant to x can only lead to redefinition of x as being a larger infinity. It therefore follows that x + x = x Which agrees with true logic that 1 + 1 = 1, albeit : is always < 1 Therefore 1 + 1 [ 1, And, x + x ! 2x QED Regards, X, but not an infinite one.
