Super-normal and super-abnormal numbers.

I made up part of that, but it’s not far off what we use in advanced and experimental mathematics.

Sometimes the ability to add and know that one plus one equals two can be a limiting disadvantage.

What we know we tend to stick to, to defend and not think beyond.

When we untie from these pre-ordained knowledge chains, we are free to think anew and solve “unsolvable” problems.

How utterly delightful and tantalizingly appetizing!
