It is a fact that 1/3+2/3=1 so natural numbers are *NOT*
dimensionless, and they do not lack magnitude.
Natural numbers are counted in 7 are afterall exactly 1 bigger then 6.
And that is not the 1 you may see upon the numberline, no that is the
magnitude of one, and it do have a range a start and an end, because
you can not divide something dimensionless, something that lack
magnitude. That is the simple fact you may say i can divide 6 with 3
and they do not have any dimesions but as i said 1/3 +2/3=1 thus there
is a hidden assuption about a range or a magnitude for any natural.
And i showed you the the set that form these ranges 4/(1/2) =
{1,1,1,1}/({1}/{1,1}) this is the underlying assumption about numbers
both fractional and wholepart numbers.
