i don't call it concept, but i call it a range of number in "series".
to make it physically appear so you understand how i view it,
i use an example = computer memory address.
each address is real, they are able to store your bits.
now we come to a concept, "place to hold a number", it is unseen stuff, but maybe mathematician will discover them soon or they discovered already.
a number need a placeholder in order to exists.
what infinity got is a range of place to hold any number but it hasn't yet hold any number.
Therefore the use of intinity instead of zero is infinitely more appropriate.

Exactly. It is the observer who defines the number in its place from this range of possibilities. In zero, the only possibility is zero. Now you can have someone who says, " 2 comes from counting 0,1,2", but then they are being inconsistent with the reality that there is no possible way to get something to come from nothing. Therefore the use of intinity instead of zero is infinitely more appropriate.

My bank account is at zero, but I wish it was infinite.
Make sense still?

0 is not to be treated as the same like other number, 0 is not a number.
Neither is infinity.

infinity is a place holder of number in a series,
so, i assume we accept this series of number, -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
if i start my series from -5, and when i said -5 to infinity, i means, this "0" are inside the infinity.
thats why i said infinity != 0. and 0 != infinity.

okay I was thinking you just divide by all the posibilities, but you said makes since.
Now this is interesting because I don;t actually accept negative numbers...

i got 5 oranges, but i am suppose to give you 8 oranges, i owe you 3 oranges,
5 - 8 = -3
