Subject: Phantom Parabola

	
You have the right idea. But the graphical representation of the
phantom parabola is better represented in a third dimension where it
cuts the x plane instead of the x axis. 

The distance B is still represented however when the 'unsolvable'
parabola is solved using the imaginary number i, the imaginary soluton
is also graphically represented. 

The phantom parabola simply needs to be hypothetically rotated 90
degrees around a central axis parallel to the y axis.
