okay, 2 things before i begin... first, mods if this is better placed somewhere else, please relocate, it's been a minute since i've been here...
2nd, man wants to control everything, and by that i mean everything. take for example time, earth orbits the sun correct? but yet, we created clocks,
with the false pretentiousness that we control time.. but if i take the battery out of my watch, the earth doesn't stop in orbit waiting for my
battery to return does it?
so zero (0)... let me start by saying this... 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9...11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19... and so on.. from this pattern, you can only assume 1
and 11 have basically the same value correct? as in 1+1=2, 11+1=12, and so on.. so what is 10? or 20? or 100? it can only be the equivalent of the
powerless 0 right? then why do we give it power? i don't get it... 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9... but add a 1 to 9 and you get?? another 1 with a 0? why is
that? i am sorry if my question confuses... it confuses me as to why we give 0 any power... if you take 1 away from 1 you get... 0. but if you add 1
to 99, you get?? a 1 with TWO more 0's? so why is it when you take 1 away from 1 you get nothing? i am baffled... this is obviously relevant only to
pi, being a number divided by another number, an equation that man has not been able to gain control of...
i know, there will be plenty of mathematical genius soon to dissuade my thought process, but it will only show me that genius wishes control, over
things we aren't necessarily meant to control...
i came upon this thought process when i was laying in bed counting sheep... and wondered why the teens are given a different structure than other
numbers... as in one, two, three... but why is it eleven? twelve? thirteen? yes, i can't explain why twenty is structured that way, or thirty, and so
on, but why is twenty-one, twenty-two, twenty-three, not the same? why is the equivalent of one called eleven? but then called twenty-ONE, so we give
it back it's original title after we pass the teens? yes, yes, we had to call those numbers something right? or we wouldn't have our control over
but that's not my argument... actually i don't have an argument per se... i am just confused as to why 9+1 gives us a 1 followed by 0, which is of
no value, but is somehow greater than 9? if you add 0 to any number, you get the same number, but then why do we put two 0's behind a 1 and get one
just to point out, i am 34 years old, and excelled quite well in mathematics all through school.. i work in a bankruptcy firm and deal with numbers
all day long every day... leave it to sheep to make me further question our so called control of anything, or even a good understanding of our so
