To keep it simple, kiss the idea of subtraction is simply the idea of
remove entities or parts. -3 has no justification on it's own when we
use it in measuring and units it is really about a deviation from a
fixed point on a partitioned ruler. We can basicly put this point
between any discrete member of the set. Just take the scale of
Celsius and Farenheit. We can start partitioning and grouping
whereever we want when counting.
