Terrence Howard Math |Terrence Howard 1×1
Howard explained in a 2015 interview with Rolling Stone that he had formulated his own language of logic, which he called Terryology, and which he was keeping secret until he had patented it. This logic language would be used to prove Howard’s contention that “1 x 1 = 2”.
“How can it equal one?” Howard said. “If one times one equals one that means that two is of no value because one times itself has no effect. One times one equals two because the square root of four is two, so what’s the square root of two? Should be one, but we’re told it’s two, and that cannot be.”
He blames his leaving Pratt over disagreements with a professor regarding this hypothesis. He also explained that he spends many hours a day constructing models of plastic and wire that he patented and claims to confirm his belief.
