 Pro pick up 0 sodas from the floor i can cut an apple in 4 pieces, and then resemble the apple and have it look like i got a full apple, but i have an apple in 4 pieces 1+0=1 is a false equation, 1 can not be added to 0, so its just 1, 1 banana + 0 bananas dosnt mean 1 banana dissapears and neither is 0 bananas added, it simple cant happen, and i still have 1 banana.. so 1+0(1) 0*6(6) 0/3(3) 3/0(3)Report this Argument Con I accept.1+0=1 by Pro's own logic. Mathematically, 1 banana + 0 bananas means it still remains as one banana, as nothing was added. Pro's logic defies themselves in this matter. Pro must prove that 1+0 is an impossible equation. The primary aspect of the resolution which I question is that information is nothing. OB1. Pro must prove every aspect of the resolution, whereas I need to only refute a single aspect to render the resolution baseless. I challenge "information=o" or "information=nothing". Report this Argument Pro there is no your and my logic, logic is determined by existence as it is 0 can not be added to 1. pick up 0 sodas from the floor. imagine a sticker of your choosing, supernatural flamethrowing dragon sticker, and put it on a soda in your hand, or on your table... 1=something 0=nothingReport this Argument Con As I mentioned in OB1, Pro has to prove that information is nothing, and 1 is matter. 1 may even be a unit to measure energy. Now I will show you how 0 can be something while the net value is nonetheless 0. According to the zero-energy universe hypothesis, which is widely accepted by physicists because of the homogeneity of the universe, the vector force of gravity acts as negative energy over the scalar positive energy, that cancel out each other in the universe. Therefore, the some of all energy in the universe is zero, but the universe has some energy nonetheless. [1] 1 can also be a value of non-matter energy. Sources[1] http://en.wikipedia.org...Report this Argument Pro anything is 1 i dont believe in a universe positive and negative creates a balancing point.. its not 0, like with a magnet, dosnt mean there is no energy in it... i have never heard anything as silly as that argument really if i burn you with a lighter, is it nothing?Report this Argument Con "Positive and negative creates a balancing point, it's not 0 ..." This must be demonstrated. 1 +(-1) =0, according to standard mathematics. The zero-energy universe hypothesis perfectly demonstrates that the net value is 0, but there is energy in it. All of Pro's arguments are bare assertions. I extend all my arguments. Report this Argument Pro energy is not nothing..Report this Argument Con Precisely. Energy is not nothing, even when its net value is 0. Therefore, 0 is not nothing. Furthermore, Pro still has not proven that information is nothing, or refuted any of my arguments. I extend all my arguments.Report this Argument Pro thats what im saying.. energy is not 0Report this Argument Con That is a bare assertion. Via. the homogeneity of the universe, I have demonstrated how the sum of all the energy in the universe is zero, but nonetheless there is energy. The resolution is negated.

hm, either experience is the source of existence, or existence is the source of experience

hm my perception of true cant exist without my perception of false*

how could there be a true answer, without there being a false answer?

true cant exist without false

Just to help clarify this (please correct me if I am wrong, vi_spex), he is essentially saying that zero does not exist in reality and therefore, it is false. Treat his usage of "true" and "false" like a binary code indicator of whether the subject exists in perceived, current reality or not. For instance, beliefs (which he deems as future/imagination) do not exist, being a cognitive image/prediction, so they are inherently false (non-existent).

Regarding this debate, since vi_spex never spells out what he means in laymen's terms and never provides definitions, the standard English definitions are assumed. The presentation of mathematical equations without any alternate explanation does not infer any other meaning than the universally accepted basic mathematical principal.
