Therefore 0 has SPACE, and its space is equivalent to 1.


I was thinking of the difference between a number line and a time line.
On a number line, you have the numbers ... -2 -1 0 1 2 ... as points.
In a time line you have ... -2 -1 1 2 ... as spaces (line segments). The only point on a time line is "0".
Consider years BD and years AD.
