I just made this up, but this is a lot of his cults philosophy around \(\sqrt{2}\)

\(x^{2-\delta}\) is it getting so close to a quadratic... Just like the Pythagorean search for the physical manifestation of a perfect right triangle........

In nature everything is irrational whenever it can and "whenever it can " usually means involving conservation of energy and quantization.

And that is why we will never understand it.

Lmao, much nicer, Tommy! Very Pythagorean... Only Geometry is Rational to Athenians, Pythagoreans knew that even Geometry was irrational

Yeah but they did not know if ( 2 + sin(pi/17) + sin(pi/29) )^( - 2) was constructible by compass or even origami.

And neither if it could be expressed by radicals.

But today almost everyone knows it and can prove it
