Math phobia


People have math phobia because they have to comprehend theorem like the one below.

Banach-Tarsko Theorem Paradox

A solid ball may be separated into a finite number of pieces and reassembled in such a way as to create two solid balls, each identical in shape and volume to the original.

Now, think of having spherical currency in circulation. That would be Sweet!

    @ Karthikeyan:
    I would tend to interpret your result as an objective fundamental scientist, where truth is more important than personal opinions. You do not let human values cloud your judgement regarding science.

    I would tend to agree with your judgement. But most of my search for truth is based on bigger picture. That is science can help the human race in the long run (with short term disaster) we should go for it. To many it may look that I am uncivilised here but does not matter to me.

    the statement is flawed right? There is no was we can split A ball and reassemble two balls of the same ‘volume’.
