A friend of mine who was a maths teacher claims 0 is not a number but a place marker. Is he right or wrong?
We say 10 to the power of n or do we say 1 to the power of n1?
What if we said 1 to the power of n what occurs then?
Still further what if we predict the square root of such a number?
To the end that for an imaginary plane to exist is that not nothing?
Or are these question mere idle foolishness of one who has too much time to think?
Therefore I am nothing since the questions asked mean nothing to anyone but me.
At least I am something to myself!
