if i took that either sin(x) or cos(x) squared equalled a number greater than 1, so when i plugged in sin(x) as 5/3 i got cos(x) 4i/3 ,

went to euler's equation and added the results,

then put the aggregate to the logarithm and got

angle = 2kp + pi/2 ± 1.0986i. Solving for cos(x) as well i got an imaginary angle equal to

angle = ±1.0986i,

but as i went on having the number grow larger, the imaginary part would grow proportionately. Now, based on the results i got, i saw such angles only poccessed periodicity on the real, unchanged, part whereas the imaginary ones poccessed none. The plus or minus part was due to the fact that for 1 possible cosine (or sine), the resulting sine (or cosine) was either positive or negative, on the equation

sin^2(x) + cos^2(x) = 1

I don't know if this is wrong but it yields an interesting result that might be telling something about a different, outside the usual trigonometry approach. However, seeing as i treated cosine and sine as continuous functions, and knowing that they can be used only to satisfy an equation, just numerically, i might be wrong, but based on the modification on the exponential function by euler,

e^x = cosh(x) + sinh(x) converted to e^ix = cos(x) + isin(x) i did the inverse, and got that for imaginary angles, cos(x) becomes cosh(x) and sin(x) becomes i*sinh(x), based on an approach

by the taylor series.

Also by using the trigonometrical identities sin(x+y) and cos(x+y) i got that

sin(x+iy) = sin(x)cosh(y) + i*cos(x)sinh(y) and

cos(x+iy) = cos(x)cosh(x) - i*sin(x)sinh(y) which in fact do satisfy the equation i did.

Could there really be such angles? Could this approach be right?
