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

Neither is infinity.
yeah, but 0 != infinity.
they are totally different.

,
i got 3 oranges = 3
i owe him 3 oranges = -3
but if you don't accept negative numbers, i believe you shouldn't accept positive number either.
my wallet got 40, and i want to buy this stuff that price around 60, i lack 20.

Yeah but infinite can be found between any 2 numbers...Infinite exists between the numbers 1 and 2 because the value between them can always be divided by 2 (for example).
but when the reference of everything that exists is traced back to its beginnings, and it is determined to not have a beginning and there was never an absolute nothing

If you only have 40 you can't pay 60... impossible
If you only have 5 oranges you can't give me 8... impossible
You cannot own -3 oranges or give me -3 oranges... impossible
Negative numbers are theoretical, you simply cannot have less than nothing.

Suppose we look at this from a mathematical statistical point of veiw...now we have a curve and variables...right?
And underneath that curve are real statistical numbers...based on our Hindu Aribic numeration system anyway....equipped with zero...so why is this even an issue?
Ahhh...and the math pro's are going to work....a value is simple...a negative value is valid...and the math works...why bother trying to sound smarter than you really are...let's do some math without numbers if your going to interupt the system with this nonsense....just saying!

my wallet got 40, i know i can't pay 60, but i want to know how much should i withdraw from the bank in order for me to be able to purchase this stuff.
40 - 60 = -20 (from my view) i got 40, but this thing is 60, so, i lack 20.
60 - 40 = 20 (from the shopkeeper view) my stuff is 60, and u only got 40, so you need to get another 20.
negative & positive number exists because there is always a 2 views.
and this makes 0 really interesting
Numbers, letters, words, language are all man made entities defined by man whereas zero(nothing) and infinity(infinite) just are.

And I will disagree...zero is a man made denomination...introduced by man and equated into mathematics by man...infinity...well another way of describing what man does not understand...but a man made expression all the same...would we agree on that?

0! is somehow found to = 1. This, to me, just further supports the idea that there is no such thing as zero.

To buy that item at 60 you have to pay 60... regardless of 20 here, 10 there, 30 in 3 weeks... to equal 60 you need 60... see what I mean?
You can have 10, 20, 40 whatever in your wallet, but do you have -30... no, it doesn't physically exist other that in a manmade contractual concept.
Infinity in my opinion is equal to "more than nothing" and all the possible "physicals" that could be rather than something unknown and not understood.
