@Holiday20310401,
Zero is like so cool, no?

This response would get be banned in the other philosophy forum. But I think (bad, especially dull and bad) humour is always good and healthy in discussions (we can argue about that in another thread).

Yeah, it's pretty damned cool. Last month I read one book about zero and another about infinity. Now, I just need to find a good book about 1, which might be Primal Number.....

i mean 0 is so cool like 0K when there is no matter.

Can matter actually reach 0K? Don't they have like a zero point energy or something - I forgot!! Someone tell me please!

Absolute zero is the absence of motion/heat. (Heat is motion). I think on earth we have got pretty close. Then there is the idea of perfect vacuum. I don't know if this is possible. I have read that certain particles appear out of nowhere, only to suddenly vanish. I'm no quantum physicist. It's hearsay from The Dancing Wu Li Masters.

Perhaps these particles don't really "vanish" except to our perception. But what is reality minus perception? (Perception in this "equation" should include all of our thoughts...including thoughts about perception and reality.....) (the rational is real and the real is rational...)

Is zero the middle of infinity?


I like that. Earlier I distinguished. Now I'm just enjoying the stripped down version. Zero as the fulcrum, neither negative nor positive.
