What picture does the title paint in your mind? Like, when you hear "division by zero" what mental picture is painted?

either

infinity,

empty set / null set,

or

error, as in division by zero error.

and that's it. no poetic metaphysical imagery.

I 'feel' the form of the fraction itself, and felt the memories of having an equation once come out that way and the obscenity I uttered.

Attempting to split a substance into nothingness (thereby destroying said substance), and being able to put the remaining nothing into neatly labeled jars.

It sounds like a name for a math-rock band. WTF is math-rock anyway?

math rock: Add N to (X) is a good group, IMO. Somewhat reminiscent of Devo and Kraftwerk. Hella could also be filed under math. Kick-ass math.

...

Also there's that incomprehensible classic by The Fixx, "Saved By Zero". Not math-rock, however.
