-Here's why. When we talk about numbers, or anything that has a numerical value, we just assign values, like 1, 2, or 3 with utter confidence. But ask anyone on the street what is the meaning of those numbers, and you will find out that most people can't really explain what is the meaning of 1.
We just know that a car has a numerical value of 1, two cars has a numerical value of 2 and so on. We assign values real easy. We don't actually give a real thought to it most of the time. And yet it is really hard to find people that can actually give an ample explanation of what 1 really means. So I tried to define the meaning of 1.
And it is really hard. I have spent 3 or 4 years meditating on this thing (not continuously of course) and I still haven't found a satisfactory way to explain this.
