0 is in fact ONE
do this with pen on paper

so the circle is one, unity

if you divide the circle in two with an S (yin/yang) you have two, the symbol for 2 is a stylized s

if you further divide the right side of the circle to get three slices, you obtain the symbol for 3

if you further divide it in four, you get the cross with is the base symbol for 4

so basically you have 0,2,3,4

1 is the one from the roman version which is not of geometrical origin, but simple monkey arithmetic based on hand signs and the number of fingers

I, II, III

hand is V

both hands is X

Re: 0 is in fact ONE
Sure Pal,

Zero is one...

Zero is ten...Zero is a billion...Zero is negative x?

Zero is the "Origin" of everything...
Zero is a philosophical construct...
Zero IS All Numbers...
Zero is Everything...
Zero is Nothing...

Zero is the best representation of GOD.

Zero is GOD.

No one has ever seen a perfect circle, nor a perfectly straight line, yet everyone knows what a circle and a straight line are.
Perceived circles or lines are not exactly circular or straight, and true circles and lines could never be detected since by definition they are sets of infinitely small points.

yep :)
different point though

the point was one of the origin of numbers
arabic are from geometrical thinking
and latin from arithmetic thinking
and 1 as a symbol can not be obtained from the geometrical approach in any meaningful way
so they used the arithmetic substitute for the small one
so that to use the circle for the Big and thus more important One - The Whole

Part of a pack one wolf chose to leave
A life like his dreams this wolf chose to weave

On his own in the dark the wolf could not see
Nobody was telling him what to believe

When he questioned what truly made him free
It was always the moonlight guiding thee

In math zero is a place holder, not a number at all.

So what is 0 then? Is it zero cubed so it covers all three dimensions?
000?

Thank you for unretarding this thread,

in programing the "register's" start at 0 so an integer that can be 256 values includes 0 so can represent 1-255.

Booleans are either true or false, on or off etc.

I wasn't criticizing really. Thats my understanding of zero.
I was asking for clarification from the op more than anything i guess. I hope i didn't scare them off.

the point of the thread was simply one about history of ideas/concepts

not about the binary system or else.

it was simply an explanation of how you can obtain the arabic symbols for numbers by GEOMTRICAL means

while the roman symbols for numbers are obtained through Quantitatively Arithmetic means
