    Can any one imagine about Zero, think the smallest size you can ever imagine but it is still small, you can’t imagine ZERO, similarly think about size (universe for instance) infinity, can you imagine – you can’t, should we not say these quantities UNIMAGINARY……

    Hi doctormitrau,
    Zero is easy.

    How many elephants are in your house?
    How many square metres of your ceiling is painted hot pink?

    The mathematical terminology 'real' and 'imaginary' are not synonymous with the everyday use of the words.

    And zero is easy. It's morphic to the identity of an abelian group. Durrrrhh!

    It's not so easy, you first try to image in your mind the size of smallest particle, then imagine smaller then the smallest........
    you chase it you will never reach up to the size ZERO

    Of course not... but you don't have to chase it.

    What you're doing is like trying to get somewhere by only going half the remaining distance with each step. Don't do that. Just go all the way.

    What's the matter, can't you imagine the identity of an abelian group?

    Know how to visualize a 9-dimensional space?

    Just visualize an n-dimensional space, and set n=9.

    Come down to reality,
    three dimentions are sufficient
    to explain all happening in universe..........
