Was wondering, based on a thread some days ago, why there is only that many numbers before reaching double digits...
Ya, we got our entire base 10 based on fingers...but why didn't we also count in our hand stumps and toes before hitting 10..or why not
1,2,3,4,10...why did we use both hands fingers before hitting double digits.
I used to refer to such ideas as stonertalk.
Anyhow..thats about it...numbers may have been our first attempt at taming this thing called reality...with identifying the individual digits on our
hand, we were able to start organizing our thoughts and plans.
-wonder what handless jellyfish type civilizations use to count and how many digits they use until it hits double digits...-
