To be fair to you....ok....I was not "precise" in my title. I chose it to add "flare".......HOWEVER.....zero and 1 are interchangeable with "space"......but not with value.....

consider..."abstractly"...


If I have an empty box... that is zero. If I fill the empty box with 1 of anything....that is 1. 1 still has the same "box" that zero had....its just that it is "filled"...
