perhaps people have not thought too much about. Well, welcome to my web chapter
of

Do you ever wonder about numbers? The Greek Philosophers did. Is 2^{0.5}
(square root of 2) where p and q are integers inside a fit of our number space?
Proof by contradiction >2000 years ago

Yes we can invent new numbers - but is it simple or what is actually required? Do you want to join my treasure hunt for new and novel numbers - I have some items of interest to show

Can we make a real levitation machine that would (no not just a silly balloon)
** actually work**? - So it would seem. Why not visit the design of my
flying machine based on rectilinear motion combined with sinusoidal rotation

Can we make a SETI receiver at home, and have it actually stand a chance of success? Should we use radio or light? How much transmitter power would be needed per light year? What would the structure of a received message be "best designed" to be?

Yes, never fail to imagine!

I hope you have fun in my Conjecturals!
