Yes, I know, that's the whole point. The point implied by the graphic is that (-shit) is contained of the set of imaginary numbers, and that by applying algebraic operations to it we can transform it into something that is contained in the set of Real numbers. It is, however, only the (-shit)^(1/2) that is itself imaginary and not (-shit) as implied by the graphic.
