Well Jeffrey just eyed through it and i am questioning his idea that you can't convert between them as freely as you can in the conventional reals.
I think that is simply wrong.
But honestly it did not tell me much more what distinguish a zeroless base from a padic or bijective.
Is it just fancy terms/names for zeroless bases?
