# One-Signed numbers (P1)

One-signed numbers are not magnitudes.

One-signed numbers are distinguished from magnitudes
because they come with operators defined.

Summation goes like:

- 1 - 2 = - 3 .

Products go like:

( - 2 ) ( - 3 ) = - 6 .

Applying the
additive identity to one-signed numbers yields:

- x = 0.

Accepting all one-signed numbers as
self-cancelling to yield zero is perhaps a paradox.

A choice to reject the identity altogether for one-signed values might
be made.

However the general solution that is consistent with the family of
polysigned numbers requires - x = 0.

The one-signed operations are not defeated by the cancellation law.

If the cancellation law is treated as an operator then these one-signed
numbers are

free to rack up very large values to no detriment.

There is no necessity to perform the cancellation operation.

The cancellation is inherent when rendering the polysigned numbers
graphically.

This is augmented with a dimensional paradox as well.

Accepting that the one-signed cancellation

- x = 0

holds then one-signed numbers are zero-dimensional.

One-signed numbers define a zero-dimensional space.

## Time Correspondence

Whereas with two signed numbers :

- x + x = 0 .

In one signed numbers we have only - x . There is no + x .

The concept of superposition will only
yield larger and larger numbers.

This nicely matches the behavior of
what we call time.

But time also contains paradoxical properties like the one-signed
numbers.

The identity - x = 0 is analogous to the
concept of the
present.

Somehow a new definition of Now is always available.

But it is always the same thing.

There is a fundamental definition of Now built into the one-signed
numbers.

If the time correspondence is accepted then one must accept that time
is zero-dimensional.

This interpretation of time actually allows time to be placed
symmetrically with the other dimensions of spacetime

because it cannot be measured graphically as the other dimensions can
be.
