Euclid produced a work which continues to last over 2000 years. Peano produces a joke... I'd say you are clearly the crank. :-) >

It has all been done already - by Euclid. :-) I only improved on some definitions and was the first since Euclid to place everything in order. You don't have a clue what is a number or a magnitude. >
If I had to rely only on your "axioms", I certainly wouldn't have at clue. I wouldn't be sure than any numbers actually existed. (One of many gaps you would have to fill, John Garbriel.) Fortunately, there is Peano.

In the not too distant future, you will be back to the Elements. Peano's rot will be delegated to the trash bin where it always belonged. :-)
HA, HA! Don't hold your breath, John Gabriel.

And do you provide an abacus as a backup system to all our clients?
