Hi Oliver!
There is no such thing as the AbSurd as a 'quality' describing imagination and thought Oliver.
The meaning of the word is Ab=Away from and SURD=Irrational.
So by logical imperative ABSURD means RATIONAL.
The common meaning for the word which you seem to infer, such as illogical, irrational, crazy etc etc. so in mathematical terms becomes an oxymoron.
Irrational Numbers like Surds, say Sqrt(2) are just as meaningful as are the Absurd numbers AS the Rationals, say fractions with numerators and denominators.
