Okay, I have been thinking for a while about this. But you all know how the common numerical system we use is 1-10 and rounding them into larger groups of 10 (100; 1,000; 10,000) and so on. But however there are obvious flaws to our Earth-made system. Like 10 cannot be divided by 3 evenly, as the result is 3.33 repeating. Maybe there is perhaps some sort of "superior" numerical system than our own that the E.T.s and UFOs use that could very well be incompatible with our own. So they would perhaps consider us not worth their time? Instead for my idea is with a system based off of 12 values which is more compatible with the earlier example of dividing by 3, which should equal a straight forward 4 rather than having a repetitive number over and over. The number 12 is found throughout many things in nature and some religious texts like the Bible and others (i.e. the 12 apostles for one).
I think that the E.T.s would more likely to be interested in making true contact with us if we got a newer numerical system as least for communications.
Your thoughts?
I would also appreciate anything you think would improve upon this idea or reinforce it.

Could someone at least give me something on what they think of this? It's not like I'm talking about Calculus and things like that. This is more basic.

For years I've wondered about the same thing. Perhaps there's a mathematical system just waiting to be discovered that doesn't produce irrational numbers with recurring decimals (like the 3.33 example of yours). Hell, maybe we'll calculate pi some day. It'd be great for 3d games as they would no longer be restricted to polygons.

I've sometimes wondered how it would work if we eliminated 0s. Like you'd go straight from 9 to 11 for instance. I'm not much of a math wiz though so I can't offer too much on this subject.

The value of one is still 1, even if you call it five.
