Laws and Orders
#4
hi GFR

Euler said that minus numbers are like borrowed money- it is not there, but when real money appears, you have to give it away as You had a minus balance. Minus numbers eat away/cancel positive numbers but are not "visible" before a positive number comes near. They have a potential, so to say, but not presence.

Also, when acting on themselves, sometimes minus numbers pop-out from nowhere into positive domain.

Something similar may relate to negative operations.

They are not visible as long as positive operation does not wander into their neighborouhood. But they sit there, waitingSmile. They are there.

I like that you have thought about 0 -tion being kind of enumeration. Should be so, or close.
