thinking about how someone could expesience geometry if sines and cosines were the only values, and the "real angle" not actually there. they'd be confused if you asked them about it.

@4nf95q643hf8wy4987fqn They'd probably create a measurement defined by the amount of travel in the unit circle that is required to get to a sine-cosine pair that can be multiplied by a scalar to get to the desired point, and use it because it makes calculations easier

just angles, but more roundabout
