Maybe I wasn't clear enough in the article (which I was afraid of anyway), so let me explain what I was going for:

There is no actual teenager, or even a sentient entity whatsoever, really. The coefficients that make up the formula, when substituted with specific letters, create a long text that contains thousands of English words (when spacing is added, of course). This text seems to be the diary of an angsty teenager. The context of the "diary" suggests that the formula somehow is sentient (perhaps resulting from its anomalous complexity), and left the message within itself. In the entries, the formula complains about its older siblings (the Quadratic Formula, the Cubic Formula, and the Quartic Formula) getting all the attention, and then gets super pissed when Neils Henrik Abel proves that it doesn't exist.

I was going for this effect: the Foundation discovers a formula that was thought (proven, even) to be non-existent; a formula that could change the way the world sees dimensions and physics and everything, and it turns out the formula is just a pissed off rant by an angsty sentient abstract concept.

It sounds cool in *my* head, but I realize it may be too *out there* to make sense.
