Going Back To Cali

The history of the number zero stretches from early civilizations in the fertile crescent (now known as the Middle East) all the way into modern times. This means the question of who invented the number zero has no simple answer, since different civilizations expanded upon the concept over many thousands of years. The basic history of numbers, at least as far as the standard system used today, consists of numerals devised by many famous Arabian mathematicians; however, the first actual recorded use of the modern zero appeared on a carved stone in Cambodia hidden away from Khmer Rouge. Yes, the very first zero complete with rounded edges, as far as archeologists can tell, stems from the early Cambodian people. 
~ Much more fascinating history about this number (or non-number) from Amanda Sedlak-Hevener at https://www.ranker.com/list/history-of-number-zero/amandasedlakhevener?ref=search  

Since zero represented a sum of nothing, it took ancient math many years to fully understand the idea of a zero sum needing representation. Yet many thinkers of the ancient world managed to conceive mathematical theories which relied upon numbers that one cannot physically see or count. Though the zero stands for nothing, the course of its development is anything but a history of nothingness.

Shaka didn't like rap in the early days until listening to LL Cool J! The reason for this hashtag #earworm is I read this article titled 'The History Of The Number 0' and immediately thought about the 80s flick LESS THAN ZERO With my Hollyweird girlfriend at the time Jami Gertz. I even wrote her a fan letter in the early 2000s which were my black hole days when my life was less than zero and she responded what's a personal letter and sign headshot! I lost that picture when I gave my wife and her husband and all four of my kids a place to live when they got evicted. Bummer.

It's been 6 months and Shaka is still alive so I have a nurse come in this morning to make sure my prognosis is still the same.
