>Define what is the null sequence you a real Troll? wonder!
Depends a tad on what construction but for rationls, a null sequence is a cauchy sequence such that for a given \epsilon>0, we can find an N such that when m>N, we have a_m<\epsilon
That is a null sequence.
> there isn't any p'th root for any prime number moron (except in the fictional wellfabricated and established mathematics), where (p) is an odd prime number
There is, again, use newton raphner method of root finding and you get a cauchy sequence that gives us the real number which is the root.

I understand your proofs, they are fundamentally flawed. You are equating exist with a compass and straightedge construction, which is fallacious. If you said "There is no compass and straightedge construction for roots beyond n=2" to which I would say "Congratulation, you figure out something that has been known for 2 centuries"
You are dishonest in misrepresenting your claims.
