There is no correct math.
also theres no such thing as a "specific amount of infinite mass" .
no you can't, mr standard modelist! 0 is off 1 is on H is both on and off and has a defined value thats neither 0 or 1. bin standard model and study QM.

quick note, to determine 3 dimensions you need 6 co-ordinates, each of which must have a value.
You stole my thunder, and good for you! Seriously!

Don't think "numbers" but rather pyshical "matter" (I will use the word matter for no other reason than to represent my point)
If I have 0 blocks and I aquire a block, that block comes from somewhere else... do you see what I mean? I've not "created" a block to add to zero but aquired it from another source, that block "existed" and I just aquired it to give me a total of 1... I've not added to zero.
Does that make sense? lol

Here's another concept I find interesting; you measure the perimeter of Australia using a 1-foot ruler, making the measurement resolution 1 foot. You can't over-lap measurements and you can't cut corners, IE. cut across a piece of land. You write down your findings. You repeat the process with a 6" ruler. You will find that the perimeter has increased due to the more precise resolution and not having to bridge across a gap. Now repeat the process with a 3" ruler, and the perimeter once again increases slightly. Keep repeating the process. You will find that with each increase in resolution, the perimeter increases.
What does this mean? In theory, your resolution can be cut in half to infinity, thereby making the length of the perimeter of Australia, or anything for that matter, infinitely long. Infinity is a tough concept to grasp. Especially the concept of space going on to infinity. Never ending. It truly boggles the mind that no matter how far you fly into space, you can keep going...twice as far! Forever. I think at some point you will wrap around and end up where you started but that's just my own theory, based on pretty much nothing.
okay, how would you numerically/matematically represent the absence of an object then? or a starting point?

This obviously challenges conventional mathematics in a way that might render this style of math dysfunctional, but when viewed in context of reality as being energy, there is never a “0” and there is always “something”.

hi spy66, glad your getting pasionate about this as i am, but yes you do need 6 co-ordinates plus time actually, grab some printer paper, hold it up and count each side, no matter how small the side is it's a side, now add time which isnt a dimension but is imperitive to equating in QM to what you see before you,space and time are not uniform. what was before the paper in space? and after? imagine you holding that paper and also not holding that paper at the same time in you hand, thats called state "H".

That is logical, on any Island .... '-'
