Terrence Howard Terryology

Howard revealed in a 2015 interview with Rolling Stone that he had created his own logic language, Terryology, which he was keeping a secret until he could patent it. This logic would be used to demonstrate his claim that “1 × 1 = 2”.

“How can it be one?” he wondered. “When one multiplied by one equals one, two has no meaning because one multiplied by one has no consequence. Because the square root of four is two, one times one is two, thus what is the square root of two? It should be one, but we’re informed it’s two, which isn’t possible.”

Howard attributes his departure from Pratt to a disagreement with a lecturer over this hypothesis. He also claimed that he spends many hours a day building patented plastic and wire models, which he claims to back up his claim.

Howard’s proof of his assertion that “1 × 1 = 2” was released on his Twitter account in 2017. It was widely panned for having numerous logical flaws and bad reasoning.
