Markus

Zero is a dimension that is empty. Zero is a space that is empty. Zero "on" the number has a space, and it is empty of value. Zero in my bank account is no money(value), but the "empty" space of a bank account. Between the earth and the moon is zero and is space.




Euclid says a dimension is a line ( I agree )

A line is a collection of points ( I agree )

zero is a single point (I agree), with no dimension (I disagree).....



consider.....have you ever seen, or used, a point in mathematics in which the point in question could NOT have be measured? Measurement is a observation involving "space" "dimension"....etc...

If I allow a point to have dimension...it then requires no debate in understanding how a "line" obtains dimension when it is composed of things that do NOT have dimension.....so on.....any better?
