A 1 unit by 1 unit triangle is impossible

If you have none maths you will have been taught about a triangle that has sides equal to 1 unit long, the diagonal of the triangle is equal to root 2. Root 2 never terminates-it does not stop

but

A 1 unit by 1 unit triangle is impossible- thus maths ends in meaninglessness

http://gamahucherpress.yellowgum.com...ATHEMATICS.pdf

a triangle that has sides equal to 1 unit long, the diagonal of the triangle is equal to root 2 th[is] is a contradiction in terms


the length-property-of the diagonal is root 2 ie non finite but the diagonal is finite a contradiction


Thus root 2 is a non finite number ie it never terminates –thus can never be constructed but the length of the hypotenuse is finite ie terminates
or
But by the mathematics the length of the hypotenuse is finite ie it terminates
Thus we have a contradiction the maths says
3) the hypotenuse is finite ie terminates ie can be constructed
but
4) the length of the hypotenuse is root 2 Ie is non-finite which does not terminate ie can never be constructed
Thus a contradiction in terms
Thus mathematics ends in meaninglessness

This again shows that mathematics/geometry/trigonometry cant be the language of the universe as the objects mathematics creates ie a 1 by 1 root 2 triangle cannot exist in our universe-[as it cant be constructed]
