Irrational Numbers... Irrational Thoughts...

There is no such thing, in practice or in theory, as an "irrational" number. Numbers, by their very nature, are rational. Numbers are measurements, tangible or not, and each have a definitive end, and can therefore not be irrational. The nature of so called "irrational" numbers is not to be irrational but contrarily is perpetual specificity. For instance the number abbreviated as pi is defined as 3.14159265359 and so on. While the specificity of it's end may be essentially inconceivable it has a definitive end preventing it from continuing beyond 3.15 because it is defined as less than 3.15 but it is defined as being more than 3.14, and so on it is defined as being less than 3.142 and likewise more than 3.141. Essentially the number is perpetually specific, but not irrational.
