On symmetry and such

Yeah so I took a well-deserved break from baby-math, because a) I’m a n00b anyway, and b) I wasn’t in the mood for math. It’s not too interesting. So the real symmetry is not between positive and negative ‘numbers’ (whatever they are), but between 0-1 and 1-infinity, and negative numbers …

Numberlines in different bases

Yeah so there obviously are numberlines in different bases. Let’s check base 10 first: 0-10-100-1000-10000 etc. 1-9, 10-90, 100-900, 1000-9000 etc. So we can conjecture (obviously it’s true, but hey) that between the ‘first’ and the ‘next’ power of N (10 here) there are N-1 spots that have integers (9 …
