Now i Think you are talking far over my head, but what do you mean by non-abelian base, i tried to look it up but i couldn't find it.
Well i've been aware since middle school that there is something seriously twisted with the interpretation of fractions using our decimal number system.
And at one point i tried to come up with zerofree numbersystems to overcome the stacking effect of zeros.
Is it the general property of a bijective base 10 system to let 1 be equal to .9A and .99A and .999999999999999A and so on.
