The Conjecture  Treat Each digit as a coordinate in a vector  Consider the space of numbers of the form w=q1*r1^(1/N1)+…+ qv*rv^(1/Nv) Where q is rational, N is an integer and no factors of r have an Nth root. denote the digits of w as w0w1…wm And the inner product between two number w and x as: Lim (m>inf)(1/(2m))sum_1..m (wi(xiwi)+(wixi)wi) Then if r1..rv and N1..Nv are known then qi is the projection of w on ri^(1/Ni) The rational Since irational numbers are random one expects their components to be orthogonal. I'm sure their are simple tests one could try to verify this. I will think of some later.

wi isn't welldefined; consider q1 = q2 = 1, r1 = 2, r2 = 2, N1 = N2 = 3.
