The difference is an indifference.
The zero is not a number.
It is a sign of a vacuum or alternatively it employs the number one in either one or the other end of the linear spectrum.
A vacuum inflates the object when it is inside.
Does it deflate the object when it is outside?
It is not outside.
What is not there is not a number of a count. It is not before a count.
There is nothing before an intiation = nothing is there before an initiation = zero is there before an initiation.
What is not of a successive order does not success an order.
Hence the zero comes handy in spatial logic.
It is a sign of an initiation and it does not have a hand.
Does the onlooker affect the object of the study?
It looks that way.
Does the onlooker affect the object of study?
The way you see the inside or the outside of the object does not depend on the object.
