Maxwell Equations derives the uniqueness of 2*5; #01.2 Advanced-text
8th ed.: TRUE CALCULUS

Now one could have seen the specialness of 10 and its multiplications of 10^x , for x a counting number,
for that 10 base is the maximum number for which we have zero digits involved and only a singular "1".

So we already knew that, that no other number as base except for (2*5) yields the maximum zeros.

So did we have to find out that the 10 Maxwell Equations are the full Maxwell Equations and symmetrical to know that 10 is special? I think so, because I think that we can derive the fact that 2*5 is special to the Maxwell Equations.

In other words the uniqueness of 10 as the maximum zero accumulator comes from the Maxwell Equations.
