Zero speaks

I’m the synonym for a loser. In your eyes, I signify loss and failure. I have no value whatsoever, not in your financial transactions, nor in your language or your lives.

And yet I matter.

For when I figure on the side of your losses, it is cause for celebration, isn’t it? I have positive as well as negative implications.

Add me to any other number you have in mind, and watch their value grow. The more you add of me at the end of that number, the more their value grows. Knock down one of me out of that figure, especially if the figure is your salary, and hear yourself shout in protest.

Does that sound like the attribute of a loser?

Without me, you would not be able to assign a value to yourself.

Without me, there would be no mathematics, no calculus, no accounting. No computers either.

I am the building block that stretches to infinity.

I am suffused with potential that knows no limits.

Without me, there would be no beginning.

With me, there is no end.

For I am the outer edge of nothing.
