I totally lack the mathematical knowledge to comment on the topic, but I just reply to point out, Hyksos: Wikipedia is NOT a respectable academic reference. It has an explicit policy of discouraging critical or original thinking. Thus popular misconceptions (eg, that Euclid's Postulate 5 is equivalent to the Parallel Postulate; that 'infinity' is a number greater than any natural number) tend to be perpetuated.
This is anathema to the intellectual values for which any self-respecting university stands.
