Traditional mathematics is a religion. Adherents believe in nothing: one absolute nothing. Nothing is a disembodied abstract idea. It possesses no physical properties through which it can interact with the physical world. It means the difference between two things that are the same.
The following drawings show how certain steps in traditional mathematics appear to have a physical representation, in the tipping of weighing scales, but that this is an illusion. Nothing is controlled by the mind of man.
Whoever controls nothing controls everything.
