A New Understanding of What It Is to Be a Number
Posted:
Aug 31, 2017 2:18 PM


All numbers are composed of a value and a space. The value is a given quantity of existence other than a dimension. The space is a given quantity of dimension. The "number" in question can be represented as just value, or as just space. Normally it is represented as space and value together. They are completely interchangeable. With this simple understanding we can "rock" the very foundations of mathematics. All things have a duality, even numbers. Proof of this isn't even necessary. It can be inherently and easily deduced by people who have not yet been brain washed by the status quo of current mathematics.
