1. ## "from nothing"

At a more general level of course, "FROM NOTHING" can be interpreted as meaning subtracted from 0, i.e. negative or below 0.

2. what u said in an earlier post reminded me of when my little girl wrote IIV for the number 3.

The normal way of writing 3 is III, but IV still means the same.

Thus instead of "sometimes words have 2 meanings" bwcomes "two words can have the same (one/singular) meaning". Then we have synonyms homonyms rhyming slang (cockney) and all hell breaks loose.

I know this is a stretch ...based on the words of a three year old..but we all get inspired from strange origins, dont we?...

Apprentice - as resident mathematicogeometrician What do you take on the roman numerals in LRB from this linguistic oddity? Mathematically and geometrically.

astreet - please, if you have time .....do we see words of this sort happen throught the text- for example we find "lead"/"led", "Maid"/"made" etc...could these lie along side the claim illustrating a lock/key (loch/quay.......etc).

Now my brain hurts..

3. Tracy,

A bit about the Romans first, ala a iii year old:

iiixxx = 27, the beginning and the end

ix = 9
xi = 11

the offsets in the index (end ix, end xi)

xxxiii = 33

ixixix ????

"lots" on the words, I wouldn't know where to start. Could you be a little more specific, e.g.,

Such does the led become gold (as in guided)
Such does the leed become gold (as in gold medal)

Although, one that I think is directly applicable is the wisdom of "numbered lines". If you go through the geomancy of the numbered lines, there are two separate ways that both interpret as

PATH OF WISDOM

where "lines" can also refer to generational lines.

Hello Tracy,

Can you lease clarify your question just a little?

One thing that I can point out about something like rules for roman numerals, is that presumably these rules are in place so that there can never be an inner inconsistency that arises anywhere within the system.

This means that these rules are only fully necessary relative to the whole. When segments of the whole are isolated, this usually means that rules can be safely eliminated, thus opening up more possibilities. Thus IIV = III = 3 is perfectly valid in isolation, but not relative to the whole.

5. ## duality

In the first image below the 3 solutions from this thread are shown together in order, at the point where the devil is tasting parts of each solution 25 times. This clearly illustrates the 432.

In the second image the 100 selected dots vs. the 100 non selected dots, given by the first solution, are shown together in positive/negative format.

As can be seen, the whole of both images is a double reflection (duex fois retourna) of any of their quadrants. The third image thus shows the 2 upper left quadrants in positive/negative form.
