The Basic Interpretation of 0 and 1

This is a somewhat metaphysical approach as to the existence, meaning, concept, and significance of the numbers 0 and 1. What are the meanings of 0 and 1? What does 0 and 1 really signify?

Zero and One are the most important numbers of all the numbers in the universe. Zero and One defines the difference between existence (1) and nonexistence (0). All other numbers signifying existence can only exist when 1 exists. One is the opposite of none.

1 and 0 are the demarcation defining what is and what is not.

All numbers other than 1 are more of 1 or are none.

0 and 1 are the only numbers times themselves that are themselves. All other numbers become other numbers.

A successful division of 1 by a number other than 1 can only occur when the 1 is not a true 1. The 1 was, in fact, the sum of smaller 1's.

1 is not the first prime number. Contrary to popular belief, 1 is not a prime number at all.

0 exists when 1 or 1's do not exist. -1 cannot exist unless 1 exists. -0 does not exist. or does it?

Does -0 Exist?

If -0 equals 1, then -1 would equal 0; but it does not. So in math, -0 does not exist.

Logic and metaphysical logic, however could be different. Negative can mean not or can mean opposite. A Not 1 means it is equal to anything other than one. A opposite to one would be equal to 0. So not 1 and opposite to 1 have different meanings.

Applying the same logic to zero, however, gives us different results. A not 0 means it is equal to anything other than 0; an opposite to 0 means it is equal to anything other than 0. So not 0 and opposite to 0 are equal, whereas not 1 and opposite to 1 are not.

It therefore follows that stating -0 is also stating that the concept of not is the same as the concept of opposite. In other words, not equals opposite. That is not true. The meaning of not does not mean the same as the meaning of opposite. So -0 must be interpreted as a false statement, thus -0 does indeed not exist.

The Diverse or Abstract Interpretation of 1 and the Universe

The concept of the number 1 is greatly dependent on the undefined premise of "one what?". Every time science thinks it has found a true one, it invariably turns out to not be so. As an example, the atom was once thought to be the one true basic building block of the universe. But then it turned out the atoms were composed of the smaller 1's of electrons, protons, and neutrons. And now we have quarks, leptons, strangelets, etc. to deal with.

Who knows? Maybe there is no true 1. Everything will always be discovered to be composed of something smaller. However, in its most basic form (if we can ever find it), all else derives from 1. 1 is the definition, reality, concept, and source of all existence.

The Binary Base 2 Numbering System

Nothing versus something is the root of the binary system of numbers.

We use Base 10 in our day-to-day living. Base 10 has ten numbers (0-9) and orders of magnitude that are times ten. The lowest-order number represents itself times one. The next-order number represents itself times ten. The next order number represents itself times 10x10 or itself times 100. And so on.

An example would be the number 742. This number means that there are:
  • two 1’s,
  • four 10’s,
  • and seven 100’s.
Which represents 2 + 40 + 700; for a total of 742.

The base 2 binary number system uses the same structure, the only difference being the order of magnitude. Base 2 has two numbers (0 and 1) and orders of magnitude that are times two. The lowest-order number represents itself times one. The next-order number represents itself times 2. The next order number represents itself times 2x2 or itself times 4. And so on.

An example would be the number 110. This number means that there are:
  • No 1’s,
  • one 2,
  • and one 4.
Which represents 0 + 2 + 4; for a total of 6.

Other binary examples are:
  • 0=0, 1=1
  • 10=2, 11=3
  • 100=4, 101=5, 110=6, 111=7
  • 1000=8, 1001=9, 1010=10, 1011=11, 1100=12, 1101=13, 1110=14, 1111=15
  • 10000=16

Binary is the mathematical representation of how the universe encodes itself.

1 and the Base 10 Pyramid

And what page about the base 10 number 1 would be complete without the usual acknowledgement of the series of 1's times themselves (squared)...

  • 1² = 1
  • 11² = 121
  • 111² = 12321
  • 1111² = 1234321
  • 11111² = 123454321
  • 111111² = 12345654321
  • 1111111² = 1234567654321
  • 11111111² = 123456787654321
  • 111111111² = 12345678987654321

The binary paradigm is the foundation of the universe, including fractals (recursive geometric shapes) and chaos theory (the butterfly effect).

There is no reason to believe the concept of "many" excludes the concept of multiple realities.

Base 5 Number System Lesson for Quinary

How to learn and do quinary conversion; the base 5 numbering system; 0 1 2 3 4; complete lesson and lots of examples. Includes short table of most-searched-for quinary / base 5 questions and answers.

There is also access to other base numbering system lessons.


If you understand the decimal (base 10) number system we use in our everyday lives, then you already understand the quinary (base 5) number system. You just don’t know that you know yet.

We use the decimal (base 10) number system in our day-to-day living. Base 10 has ten numbers (0-9) and orders of magnitude are times 10. The lowest-order number represents itself times one. The next-order number represents itself times 10. The next order number represents itself times 10x10 or itself times 100. The next order number represents itself times 10x10x10 or itself times 1000. And so on.

A base 10 example would be the number 2417. This number means there are:
seven 1’s,
one 10,
four 100’s,
and two 1000’s.
Which represents 7 + 10 + 400 + 2000; for a total of 2417.

The Quinary ( Base 5 ) Numbering System Uses the Same Structure...

...the only difference being the order of magnitude. Base 5 has five numbers (0 1 2 3 4) and orders of magnitude are times five. The lowest-order number represents itself times one. The next-order number represents itself times 5. The next order number represents itself times 5x5 or itself times 25. The next order of magnitude would be 5x5x5 or 125. And so on.

A base 5 example would be the number 3142. This number means there are...
two 1’s,
four 5’s,
one 25,
and three 125's.
Which represents 2 + 20 + 25 + 375 for a total of 422.

Another base 5 example would be the number 2011. This number means there are...
One 1,
one 5,
no 25's,
and two 125's.
Which represents 1 + 5 + 0 + 250; for a total of 256.

Vinegar and Baking Soda Uses List

Reference Lists for Cleaning and Other Purposes for Baking Soda and Vinegar


Vinegar aka Weak Acetic Acid

Cleaning uses for vinegar.

The chemical name for vinegar is diluted acetic acid. As a mild acid it chemically reacts with many other compounds. The result is the removal of those compounds from places we want them removed, otherwise known as cleaning.

List of Vinegar Cleaning Uses

  • Windows
  • Mirrors
  • Do NOT use for TV’s, computer monitors, etc.
  • Shower heads
  • Kitchen counter tops
  • Coffee pots
  • Tea kettles
  • Wood floors (I’d test this on on a small spot first)
  • Toilet bowls
  • Sinks
  • Refrigerator
Non-cleaning uses for vinegar include cooking (of course), mixed with salt for killing weeds, mixed with baking soda for keeping drains clear.

Baking Soda aka Sodium bicarbonate

Cleaning and other uses for baking soda.

The chemical name for baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. As a mild, generally non-chemically-reactive abrasive, it can be used accordingly. It also absorbs odors.

List of Baking Soda Cleaning Uses

  • Teeth brightening
  • Putting box in refrigerator to absorb odors
  • Mixing into litter box absorbs odors
  • Keeping drains fresh
  • Removing grease from stove
  • Laundry spot cleaning
  • Adding to laundry as brightener
  • Sprinkling over carpets some time before vacuuming
  •  Other cleaning uses might be listed right on the box
  • And then naturally there’s the cooking thing.

Combining aka Mixing Vinegar and Baking Soda for Cleaning Driveways

  • Simply mix the vinegar and baking soda in a container and pour on driveway oil stains. Do this while the mixture is reacting. Scrub and spread around with brush. Let sit awhile. Rinse.


I hope the above lists and information proves useful for folks.

And here's a worthy tip about dusting.
