The roman numeral "I" pertains to a single value, not the actual number 1.

Have fun inventing history.

They also look the same as the lowercase "l". What is your point?

1 finds it interesting that I appears the same as 1 is all.

Truly fascinating.

What I find interesting is that an individual speaks for the whole, and not for himself.

So if you count you go from zero to everything? Fascinating, truly fascinating.

What is a 'himself'?

The absolute is doing it all - yet there is an idea that there is a you that is separate and other things that are separately doing things.

You count with letters? I'd love to see it.

If we are not separate, how come I did not write what you wrote?

There is only what appears. What is happening is all there is.
The assumption that there is someone writing is happening - no one is writing and no one is reading.
Reading is happening.

Since you helped write my thread, I then suppose we can both agree with it.

Sure: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, I even can do math with letters. The problem is you don't even know 0 is a much better symbol for the oneness you're looking for.
1 thinks you should maybe think a little harder before you defend your opinion. Let's just hope no one seriously believes, you'd know what you're saying.

Bravo. I was being sarcastic, but bravo nonetheless. However, you've only taken me out of context – the result of obviously not reading. I wasn't speaking about the single unit of value, I was speaking of the arabic numeral "1", the glyph itself, in response to "the arabic numeral 1 looks like the latin letter "I"". Think before you speak.

I'm not looking for any oneness. Perhaps read the OP before responding to it.

The opening post speaks about the 'I' and also speaks of oneness.

'I' as an individual among other individuals opposed to '1' as the undivided one?

'More than 1' versus '1'.

The only thing spoken in regards to "oneness" is what the individual says about it.

The symbol one as in 1 - see how 'I' looks like '1'.
The one is doing it all - is being all there is.


"1" is an arabic numeral. "I" is a latin letter.

So no, there is no connection between the two.


Since language is about concepts, it's a great idea to use metaphors and mnemonics to help people see the truth.

Has it been considered that 'I' is the symbol for one?


One what?
