Back to the ancients to find the future of science

The Whole Thing is a (Now) Number

The Whole Thing is a (Now) Number

All of the traditional sciences of our day are founded on analytic arithmetic, a relatively
recent development. The ancient Greeks practiced a synthetic kind of arithmetic. Instead of
scalar magnitudes, they resorted to geometric line segments. The product of line segments
could be a rectangular area, or a volume, for example. Theirs was a geometric arithmetic. In
this paper, based on previous work, we report a new kind of science using non-ordered
synthetic number. We call them now numbers. The number system is binary with the two
elementary parts corresponding to the ancient ontological gender construct. It turns out that
there are four elementary now numbers corresponding to the binary genders fm, ff, fm, and
mm, reminiscent of the implicit gendering of the four classical elements
