Mich...

Postulates.....

0 as space, is infinite small.....if value is "shrank" infinite small...it will find an infinite amount of space of which to "extend" unified fields.....thus there is not a "left" side of the quantity line.....there is only the infinite in (both) directions on the number line.....zero....dictates what "you" call the numbers "surrounding" the spot on the number line that you are observing...change your zero(reference point)... change your ""extended" unified field.....such as black wholes.....
