I think math is too inaccurate. In reality; you don't get 3 plus 3; you get 'this' 3 + 'that' 3.

If the two 3s were exactly the same in every way; you would have only one 3!

Obviously -1 x +1 gives 1 in math.
The vector explanation of sq.rt -1 involves multiplying a vector by 'itself' to get a vector along negative axis. But you really have to express the numbers as ordered pairs; and its really two things interacting, so are different.
MUST be different or wouldn't be two to interact!
No such thing as one thing times itself.

To multiply, add etc. requires two objects that can not be exactly the same or they would be just one object unable to be split without being split into two! Could that be right?

And one difference could just as well be called a + and a -. So no wonder when multiplied you can get sq. rt. -1.

You don't get numbers in reality; you get numbers of things. Number and thing gives complex number!
