Do you think God has holes in him? I don´t! Therefore, I state that the notion of ´nothing´is a fallacy. A positive and a negative of the same order, do not cancel each other out. They complement each other, making a neutral, stable completeness.
(-1)+(+1)=0(1) If you add negative one to positive one, you end up with the zero(complete) power of one.
(-2)+(+2)=0(2) If you add negative two to positive two, you end up with the zero(complete) power of two.
(-1000000)+(+1000000)=0(1000000) If you add negative one million to positive one million, you end up with the zero(complete) power of one million.
This makes zero the symbol that can complete any two opposites, turning it, in effect into omega, infinity.
Makes sense to me!
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 is the decimal system. This is merely a convention. Why don´t we adopt the octagonal system(series of eight). This would mean, that we have to take the numbers eight and nine to the scrapyard. Zero is used to complete the series. The system then works as follows:
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,10 Ten is the completion of the series of eight.
11 would then be what we call 9 and 12 wtbwwc 10.
20 would mean two completed series of eight, what we call 16
100 would mean eight completed series of eight: 64.
Why don´t we use this system? I hear you say, because the decimal system makes sense, as we have ten fingers. No we don´t! We have eight fingers and two thumbs. Take one hand, you have one series of four and the thumb to use as a substitute. Either hold up four fingers or one thumb: same thing. You have two series of four to work with, making up one series of eight.
Simple, isn´t it! Too zany for you? OK! I´ll shut up.
