IAN: Apart from inflammatory talk of a global conspiracy to oppress the masses with zero and personal attacks on me, I have not seen any logical support for your views on zero. I even raised several questions about your claims which you have systematically ignored.

Of those questions, perhaps the most relevant are: What is the definition of change you imply that does not employ zero? And: How is change measured free from differentiation from a state of no (i.e., of zero) change?
