Just wondering is someone can shed some light on this. Ran into this document posted online which claims to have solved how to divide a number by zero, a math problem that's over 1,000 years old. It?s posted at

You have to watch what you get out of Vixra but this actually seems authentic. The author claims that division by zero has real number meanings but they exist in ?subspace.? His definition of subspace is definitely different from its usage in Linear Algebra or other mathematics.

The 24 page paper discusses ideas of higher dimensionality, including time, and quantum mechanics. I haven't heard anything else about this anywhere. Does anybody else think this is real?
