funny mirrors: imaginary number theory
Posted in the Mathematics Forum
#1 Mar 12, 2013
Funny mirrors are mirrors with distorted shapes usually found in circus carnivals as imaginarium treats.
When you stare into a funny mirror, you see your mirror image distorted in various unusual ways.
Ironically, funny mirrors provide philosophers with an offbeat suggestion: if perception can be gauged to literally be surprised by proportion distortions, then the ideal of proportionality is not only a tangible expectation but a rule to be physically analyzed.
We all assume that proportion is a given absolute, but perhaps the "expectation of proportion" suggests that proportion is also a concept that can be transformed in imaginary planes.
Such ideas are studied by number theorists who devise complex transformations of numbers that in of themselves have no verifiable reality but exist only as translation-rich hypothetical constructs.
Therefore, funny mirrors serve as ironic real world intellectual symbols of making constructs of mathematical equations regarding proportionate substitutions.
While making such idealized or even imaginary constructs seems counter-intuitive it does prove that scale-hype Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Giant" (1956) and "Big" (1988) are surprisingly civilization symbols of perception guessing.
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
