That's were really seem to lose it, Conway.

No amount of hand waving will convince knowledgeable people that 0=1. And none are particularly troubled by the fact that there is no solution to 0x=1. They understand that 1/x increases without limit as x tends to 0 from the right, and that it is undefined when x=0. They also understand that 1/x decreases without limit as x tends to 0 from the left. And it has nothing to do with your supposed solutions to 0x=1.

Seeing your end results, I am not particularly motivated to untangle your twisted logic -- an informal garble of symbols that looks only vaguely mathematical. You have also ignored requests to formalize your system. I'm not sure that you even understand what that means.
