The difference between the number 0 and 1 is 1. So is the difference between 3 and 4. Proposition: The difference between 0 and 1 is much larger than the difference between 3 and 4. That is because regardless of how many decimal places you go to in the calculations, there is a qualitative difference in the first statement. Nothing contrasted with something. In the second place there are two "somethings" being compared. A fundamental category shift from "nothingness" to "being" is huge. Thoughts?
