I want a "Powers of i" documentary. 08:21, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Basiclly it will in each iteration rotate image 90 degrees. /* 
          i^2 = -1 ,
          i^3 = -i ,
          i^4 = 1  ,
          i^5 = i  ...
Ans so on */ 09:28, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
What about a "Powers of 2i" documentary? ColorfulGalaxy (talk) 08:59, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
This is basically a "Powers of ((i)^2)^2" documentary. B for brain (talk) (youtube channel wobsite (supposed to be a blag) 18:28, 21 April 2024 (UTC)

Is it a coincidence, that this is selected for comic 271, while 2, 7 and 1 are the first digits of "e", which is also a very common base in Exponentiation? --Lupo (talk) 14:02, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

I once remember seeing someone wrongly saying "one to the fourth power" instead of "ten to the fourth power",[citation needed] probably on a show or a movie. I don't remember the name of the show. Edit: It may be cited on Numberphile. --ColorfulGalaxy (talk) 08:59, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
