While you create new systems, try to add to them a very desirable property than Peano's have: the ability to express very big (or infinite) objects in a finite, even very compact, space of symbols. This is what makes better a system like "1 is a number, Sa is a number if a is" than "foo is a number, foo foo is a number, foo foo foo is a number, ...", or than "1 is a number, S1 is a number, SS1 is a number, SSS1 is a number, ...".(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
