'May be' of course, not 'is' :-)

Qiaochu: I think what hilbert points out is that a closed point is of codimension $>1$.

"what the symbols are meant to mean" may sound a bit defiant, which is not the case and not my intention :-)

comment Intuition behind Matrix Multiplication
@lhf When you extend multiplication to fractions or the real line like you do, I'm sure you agree that the intuitive 'counting' operation of multiplying integers extends to the intuitive operation of 'scaling'.

Nice solution! Getting rid of the simplest (characteristic $2$) case as neatly as possible, and then using this directly to support the initial intuition: "fields have fractions." Om nom chomp.
