WHERE IS ZERO? DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
Zero is extremely important and gives meaning to the language of Mathematics and its branches, ubiquitously spread throughout universe! However if we carefully try to search the origin of the concept of zero, we find that it is an arrangement to comprehend, explain and maneuver the fleeting phenomena! Where is zero?
If we carefully search for the existence of zero, then we only realize that existence of zero is only with relation to three dimensions and their influence on our brain. When we indicate absence of a particular entity and assign the value zero, it has merely a limited meaning in terms of absence of that entity in that place at that time with respect that observer. Actually; how can zero per se; i.e. nothingness exist? The moment we
say zero, it implies presence of time, space, background or field and the observer! Hence isn’t it true that not only zero/zero; but zero itself; is also indeterminate? Where is zero? In fact; the origination of the concept of nothingness and its designation in terms of zero, have given rise to the dreadful concept of end and death!
This is only a piece of wild thinking by an ignorant individual and all the erudite readers can give a thought to it and highlight the truth to the people. DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
