    you cant get -1 from a exponent so what they do is that they just put an "i"

    x^2 = -1 is the solution; now can we come up with a consistent mathical philosophy with this concept? if so then it is valid, otherwise it is just a whimsical consequence.

    you cannot 'prove' that i^2 = -1, it is an axiom ; or definition that creates a consistent mathical philosophy.
