Hi Mike,

***The thrill comes from talking with persons whose ethical systems are exotic and dangerous, eh?***

I suppose some thrills could, but most of mind don't.

***our number system assumes an arithmentically flat universe ...***

I don't agree. Our number system assumes nothing. Mathematicians who have formally developed our number systems have studiously avoided making any assumptions about our, or any, universe in defining our number systems.

***But as time-space is intertwined, so are time-space-number.***

I disagree.

***In the difference between .99999...(x) and 1.0 (x) ( where (x) is the distance between units of matter) are the phenomena of space curvature.***

If your usage of the elipsis in your term ".99999..." is consistent with common mathematical and scientific usage, the difference between those two numbers is zero. I don't think the phenomenon of space curvature can be found in that zero.

Warm regards,

Paul
