Teehee. Well, math is supposed to be the universal language. Anything is possible, people would just have to get used to it. Whether it will be something that could become widely used, like English, I'm not so sure about that. It takes a long time to establish something like that.
Think about Esperanto. It's still based on other languages but it is a constructed language. It's been around for over a century. Estimated speakers: up to 2 million, which is not that big of a deal in my opinion but I guess it's still better than nothing.
The same can be done with numbers, constructing a new language based on numbers.
maths is the only universal language used to communicate maths, stats, physics and to an extent other pure theory subject
binary is another mathematical language....
Not sure what the purpose of this thread is
mathematics is not a language. There is no meaning embedded in it.
Ifg I say 01465636857, do you understand what i am saying? or if I speak everything in terms of formulas, what is the meaning i am trying to communicate?
This is important because we think in words and languages. The structure of all information is is either based on words and numbers. If you think in numbers rather than words, what does it mean.

the confusion with constructing a language based totally on numbers- if we're speaking of a spoken language- would be that words are based on a combination of sounds, not purely on meanings- to be able to speak a language it must be phonetically speakable!
If numbers were corresponded to the different symbols of the IPA (international phonetic alphabet, for those who didn't have to take several linguistics classes!) then it might be a possibility, but you'd have to find some way to seperate them, as there are certainly more than 10 symbols
written would be easier- I have some friends who occasionally write in binary and can read it, but a spoken language based on numbers sounds rather iffy as far as practicality goes
Hope that's along the lines of what type of answer you're looking for!
