Would you say that e^*(2 * Pi * i) is exactly equal to 1, rather than
approximately equal to 1?
If you believe that it is, you are believing in the independent existence of
infinitely long numbers e and Pi, numbers which have never been fully
grasped by any human, and potentially never grasped by any conscious being
anywhere (due to their infinite nature).
