  • Gauss' "Declaration of Independence"

    Dear All,

    This paper came to my attention years ago and I've been wrestling with it periodically ever since. I think I once understood it, then forgot what I'd discovered. If anyone understands it, or wishes to try, I'd appreciate knowing.

    I should add that, although it superficially it's about mathemetics, more fundamentally it is about the metaphysics behind the mathematics, specifically a choice between an algebraist's math where "imaginary" numbers are merely meaningless curiosities, and a Gaussian math where "imaginary" numbers are alive with meaning.
