Subject: Quadrature of the circle (squaring thereof)

Date: 1 Sep 99 09:16:01 -0400 (EDT

Reductio Ad Absurdum
and
quadrature of the circle
with a straight-edge and pair of compasses

It is impossible to square a circle
with a straight-edge and pair of compasses
on a perfectly flat plane
when its radius is
equal in length to the side of a rectangle
that is equal in area to that circle
being squared
or
when its diameter of
2*(2 to an exponent or power of 1,2,3,4,5...) units
is a portion of the side of a rectangle
that is equal in area to that circle
being squared.

Because it is impossible
for a spiral on a perfectly flat plane
to intersect
a straight line across it path.
