Two Is One

I just got reminded why the whole "One is none, Two is One," sounded so familiar.

Banach-Tarski Paradox.

This upsets me because I tried so hard to kill the brain cells with this math in them.

  1. Wouldn't Banach-Tarski say one is two, not two is one?

    I think the simpler derivation is from Murphy, cf The Contributions of Edsel Murphy to the Understanding of the Behavior of Inanimate Objects

    1. You're not tricking me into remembering this information and ruining years of therapy.
