    The god equation

    What's the big deal with e^(ipi)+1=0?

    Like it's the 5 most common constants in math, shouldn't we expect the 5 most common ones to show up together? The fact that it has addition, multiplication, and exponentiation is impressive though.

    1 and 0 are constants too

    Supposedly not when they come from different/disparate branches of math. The main fundamental constants from calculus (e), geometry (pi), complex analysis (i), arithmetic (1 or 0, I guess), or something like that...

    I've never really been super mind=blown by it either.

    They are not the most common constants. I dare you to determine that. They are important.
