I stumbled across this article and found it quite interesting.

Whether or not this theory represent reality is not something I care to debate but to me it represents a paradigm worth consideration. It actually makes sense and despite being laden with technical jargon, the gist is not that hard to follow. Then again, maybe I'm just equally crazy.........

what a delightful read ty

(1 + (-1)) + (2 + (-2)) + (3 + (-3)) +... = 0 + 0 + 0 + ... = 0
in mathematics that the sum of all real numbers is undefined. Here we see zero is nothing and everything

thats the equivalent of the 'big bang' right there
i know sounds crazy right?

Zero cannot represent both nothing and everything in the same mathematical system of values, and as long as we remember that, we can discover a second mathematical system, very similar to ordinary math, and yet very different, because in this new system, zero represents a mathematical everything, which produces a whole other kind of math. And what is perhaps most interesting, is that in the same way that there isn't a number in ordinary math to represent everything, in this new system there isn't a number to represent nothing.

love it how can zero be greater than one....
i like turning our application of math from counting the finite to encompassing the infinite...symmetry

I anticipated the sound of crickets but felt it was worth posting anyway.

To have you as my first respondent has made my night!

More importantly, you obviously understand the concept the author is trying to convey.

I thought once, that if you take a circle, or a "zero" and fold it, then you end up with an 8, or the sign for infinity, a self-supporting paradox, that spews fourth complexity from the centre point.

That's a clever thought actually. At minimum, credit for thinking outside the square (circle?)

Why did the chicken cross the Mobius Strip? To get to the same side........

Nice perspective. Thanks a lot for sharing this info.
