The way you think about the exponential function is (probably) wrong. Don't think so? I'll convince you. Did you realize that multiplying e by itself π times doesn't make sense? Here is what's really behind the most important function of all time.

This is great but I came here after clicking an article on LinkedIn which talked about exp(pi). There is no mention of that in this article, e.g. why it is so important.

## The fascinating story of the exponential function

Nice Explanation. We can define a^x as e^{x ln a}.

Is this absurdity also seen in application of exponentiation to solve real problems in nature ?

I am wondering if this is an aspect of nature.
