Why is 'x' the symbol for an unknown? In this short and funny talk, Terry Moore gives the surprising answer.
Terry Moore directs the Radius Foundation in New York, which, as its website says, "seeks new ways of exploring and understanding dissimilar conceptual systems or paradigms -- scientific, religious, philosophical, and aesthetic -- with the aim to find a world view of more complete insight and innovation.

"Algebra’ roughly translates to ‘the system for reconciling disparate parts." (Terry Moore)
