There are very few unique sets of objects. 0 : ∞ falls as one of them.
We are told that
1/∞ = 0
1/0 = ∞
that x = 1/x thing again, but in both directions.
They are also unique in other ways. They were not represented at all in the ‘old’ ratio maths. They are not really ‘numbers’ in any sense in any numbering system. They ‘muck up’ equations so that special rules have to be invented to take care of that. They almost seem interchangeable.
But Zero then becomes awkward. You can create it simply by addition and subtraction. If it happens to remain the passive observation you require, all is well. Should it somehow change into its slippery alter-ego then….
So what scientific perspective does this provide?
Well a potential answer to the simple question, ‘How big is the Universe Daddy?’.
In an X space the answer is +∞ to -∞ in all directions.
In a 1/X space, well it is probably the distance between the ends of the compass in all those religious paintings. Or the space between your own two hands when placed apart.
Same space, different viewpoint is all.
Looking in, not looking out.
Who is to say that, as such a place does exist, beings do or do not inhabit it? I certainly have no data. A singularity contemplating the duality below and all it contains could well exist.
0 : Infinity?
from an email conversation on the above
“My interest in science and I thought you had an interest in science and I thought we were in agreement that religion should have no relationship to science. Was I wrong about this?”
“Mine too. I just observed that a 1/x view of time and space allows a ‘god like’ view of the Universe. The space between your hands held apart can be Infinity in both directions if you consider the space between as being infinitely sub-dividable. I claim nothing. I only observe. And those religious paintings and Mason symbol. Have they been seeing that all along?
