You are not a function. [Aug. 22nd, 2005|10:42 pm]

You heard me right. You are not a function. You may be an equation, but you do not assign an element to one set for every element in another set. There exists no set such that you can assign an element to another set for every element in that set. You are nothing more than a mere equation.

"Now listen here, Adolf, there may exist no real set of numbers such that I assign a real element to another set for every element in that set, but I can assign complex elements to another set for real numbers in the independent set, and there even exist some sets including complex elements to which I can assign real values. I'm a complex function, sure, but I'm still a function. Complex functions are functions too. You have to understand that we exist, whether or not you like it, and you can't choose to ignore us because we're "too hard" for you. I assure you, when the 2π comes, you'll be the ones with your backs against the wall, and Complex Analysis will experience its reign."

Geez, fine, you're a complex function, I'm sorry.
