### Hence I prove that God exists...

1+e^(iota*pi) = 0

5 fundamental quantities in mathematics, each created/discovered for different reasons, at different times in history, come together into this magnificently simple equation. Is that sheer chance or a conspiracy of the universe?

iota was invented to accomodate square roots of negative numbers

Pi was invented for geometrical purposes, though today it is defined analytically

e was probably invented for expressing logarithms

0 was invented by the Indians to ease numerical expression (?)

1 is fundamental anyway

How and why do they fall together so beautifully. Is it a sign of a divine presence, goading us to find it out ?

P.S. - I cannot claim to have discovered the importance of this equation. I remember somebody saying to me that Euler once used this to show that God exists. Googling didn't turn this up...but its pretty convincing anyway.

hmm. iota huh? interesting.. its a good thing you started blogging. See.. thats the only way you can let out all such complicated emotions, which no one else would bother to understand :D

hey! isn't this equation wrong!

if i m not wrong this shud be 1 - i isn't it?

don't think so....

e^(iota*pi) = cos(pi) + i*sin(pi) = -1
