number0001_400To avoid bothering readers with math, I will keep it short and simple. We use a numeral system comprised of 9 single digits and add a second digit at the tenth digit. So 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and move to the double digit 10. This is because our ancestor mathematicians based the digit system on the number of fingers and toes we have.

Now imagine if instead of a nine digit, then tenth double digit system we had a different system. Imagine we had fifteen single digits, then move to double digits. Imagine we had zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and then, still in single digits, let's call the numbers booze, cooze, dooze, fooze and gooze. So to illustrate this the numeral system would be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and then let's use the symbols B, C, D, F and G; So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, B, C, D, F, G, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1F, 1G etc. etc.

Without bothering you with too many details, I tested this numeral model on algebra, calculus, geometry, and surprisingly, you get a complete different set of theories. All the math we know is based on a nine digit system. You would have to completely reprogram the system to be able to use it in a fifteen digit system.

I would have elaborated, but I'll save that for when I'll be on a payroll. What's the point of using a fifteen single digit system?

Well for starters, for secret communications purposes. Other people won't be able to read into your digits. Using a fifteen or twenty or twenty five single digit system can also be the long cut to solving some pressing math problems, which I would gladly tackle had I not been typing this on a living room table as I don't work from a desk. Finally, quite a few theorems could arise from using a fifteen, nineteen or twenty three single digit system. That's a whole new way to program.

I'll leave it at that. Hopefully one day I can dedicate a dissertation to abnormal single digit systems.
