now, i've read the thread, Lee, and i agree totally. i should have read a little more and i would eventually have gotten to it. now, onto what i really have to say. (note to time travellers: this has nothing to do with time travel! sorry! *grin*)

my insight was actually about the binary counting system. all current mathematical work and theory (calculus, linear algebra, etc etc) is done in base 10. everything we know about math is done in base 10. suppose for a second that someone thought: "hey, wait! if we did things in base 2, could we possibly see things more easily?" suppose, for example, that doing a chain-rule integration in base 10 is actually a quite simple matter when you're doing it in base 2? i have no idea where to go with this thought, but has anyone actually tried to convert advanced math theory to base 2 and looked at the results??
