The first time I saw Euler's equation, it blew my mind.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]e^{i\pi}+1 \equal 0[/tex]

Here, we have three of the most important numbers in math, all related to each other in such a remarkably compact equation. Does anyone know what this means? I think you can prove this through Taylor Series, but that's not what I'm asking for. Is there some underlying, intuitive reason for why Euler's equation is true? Or is it just a big fat coincidence (hence sign from god)?

Edit: Why is there a stupid dash over my zero? This is why IhateLatex. Stupid, unexplained stuff always happens.
