30 February,0101: A whole lot of speculation is already there surrounding the life of the Great Dinosaur Tyrannosaurus Rex. But it was beyond the imagination of even the fiction writers and prolific film directors that one day its heartbeat will be calculated.”We were and in fact still are in pretty much of a shock. Just like everyone we too associate the fact that the heart is beating with the fact that the animal is still alive. Although not much of flesh is left in the degraded fossil of the dino, a beating heart is enough to scare us of a resurrection.” said Australian Botanist Dr. Kang Roo.
On careful calculation the heart beat turned out to be about ’26i’ per minute, where i is the imaginary number. Mathematician Jerome Boka was the first one to theoretically predict on pen and paper the probable heartbeat and then measured it using a headphone (as a replacement for stethoscope). Although there has been no confirmation about the matter from the experts in medicine and anthropology, the mathematicians and, due to an unknown reason, Botanists seemed to have uncovered a tantalising potential hidden in the recently discovered fact.
As the theory goes the t-rex’s heartbeat is not exactly what we mean when we talk of a heartbeat. It was observed to be a simple harmonic motion of the degraded heart muscle tissue which was oscillating at a plane perpendicular to the median sagittal plane. Instead of using vector notation, in a moment of brilliance the Mathematician modelled the heart beat using complex numbers and found its time period to be another complex numbers which in turn yielded the heartbeat of 26i per minute.
Several questions have already arisen like,
- How can a degraded muscle tissue in a fossil represent a heart?
- If the heart is beating is the t-rex dead?
- What does the fox say? (fox=anthropologist)
and most importantly,
4. What EXACTLY was a mathematician doing with T-Rex Fossil???
