I suppose you can assign whatever numbers you like to one complete rotation.

and there are even more variations of angle measurement,
a few of which are documented here

Now you want to call this 4 what? maybe "archiepoonians". Fine.

Now on to the real truth, the real logic you keep writing about.

Use your archipoonian angle measurement and determine the lengths
of the sides of the triangle with hypotenuse length 1 and angles
pi/2,pi/4,pi/4
= 90 degree,45 degree,45 degree
= 1 archipoonian, 1/2 archipoonian, 1/2 archipoonian
(which are all describe the exact same triangle)

Two thousand years of logic and geometry say that those
two unknown equal lengths will be 1/sqrt(2) ~= 0.707107
and when you construct that triangle with those lengths
the angles are as expected.

The sinusoid trigonometry you keep claiming is all wrong
produces exactly this result.

But use your semicircle trigonometry and that logic you
keep claiming you have and I believe you will find that
those two unknown equal lengths will be sqrt(3)/2 ~= 0.866025
and with those lengths you cannot construct the triangle
with those angles.

You have been shown half a dozen times with very clear very
simple examples that even you should have been able to check
for correctness before you ever started screeching about your
semicircle trigonometry that semicircle trigonometry is
simply completely totally wrong, yet you just keep screeching it.

A logic brain would never make a mistake like that.
A mentally retarded brain would make a mistake like that.

If a logic brain saw a mentally retarded brain make that
mistake the logic brain would immediately figure out what
the mistake was and explain this to the mentally retarded brain.
