The Genesis of Zero

This is a short version of the genesis of the number zero in human consciousness:

‘The first recorded zero appeared in Mesopotamia around 3 B.C. The Mayans invented it independently circa 4 A.D. It was later devised in India in the mid-fifth century, spread to Cambodia near the end of the seventh century, and into China and the Islamic countries at the end of the eighth.’

The Indians also contributed the 2nd sutra of the yoga sutras.

It says the flux of nature and of the mind is clarified by the deep mind into a one pointed focus which fosters profound harmony.

There are 67 chemical elements in the sun. But where does hydrogen (the progenitor of all the others) come from?

It comes from element 0. Just because it has no mass or negligible mass, doesn’t mean it does not exist. The Ancient Greeks were essentially right. Ovid was wrong:

How a Word for a Void Came to Mean a Confused Mass
