Hi Atri, there is no zero as far as we know, for to have a true and complete zero, there would have to be no existance anywhere to percieve its non-existance. The example you gave is an abstact, and can only be applied to abstact ideas such as a begining point which we symbolize with zero. So anything that has been brought into the realm of imagination which has no evidence to support it can be thought of as zero, god would be in this category using numbers, correct?
As far as the other stuff you mentioned, the inter-world travels and healing... It would be nice to share at least some of it practically with the rest of us, in the intrest of a better humanity, rather than keeping it to yoursElves.
Iguess the greatest achievement of the invention of the abstact zero is allowing us to count past nine, and calculate pieces of things which were to small to fit into the then current measuring sizes. Many abstracts are practical for us.
