video that you posted shows very clearly two patterns that are particularly
relevant to Vortex Mathematics *How the decimal system (Base10) is related to binary (Base2) and *How any mathematical operation can be accomplished purely through the processes of doubling and halving (divisionmultiplication are shown, and subtraction addition are implied...everything else being a compounding of these basics). It has been pointed out that the numbers of The DoublingHalving Circuit are representative of powers of 2, and can be combined in the same manner to produce any other number.

good shit. i guess it makes sense that the earliest maths systems would use a binary system because thats the simplest system.
its interesting how different bases connect. the author of alice in wonderland actually left a base problem in the alice in wonderland book "I'll try if I know all the things I used to know. Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven isoh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate! However, the Multiplication Table doesn't signify:" ive also got a book called "alex's adventures in numberland" and in the book he talks about a culture of people in the amazon who dont have a number system and only have 5 numbers. they did tests with them and it was very interesting. they showed these people 1 dot on the screen and they got it 100% of the time. the same thing happened with 2 dots. but when there were 3 dots on the screen they only said the right number 80% of the time. when there were 4 dots they got it right 70% of the time. and for 5 dots they only got it right 28% of the time. it turned out numbers for 3 and above were just rough estimates. also an interesting thing was when westerners put numbers on a line they do it in a linear fashion. however these people from the amazon put numbers on a line in a logarithmic fashion. they also did tests on children and in kindergarten/nursery and first grade/P1 the kids put the numbers on the line in a logarithmic fashion. in 2nd grade/P2 the children put numbers on a line in a linear fashion. also notice how we think of the words millionaire and billionaire in a logarithmic fashion because we use them interchangably even though theres a huge difference between them. humans must naturally think of numbers logarithmically but we use them in a linear fashion because its more useful in society today.

There is also base 1 (unary numeral system):
     etc.

yeah but it wouldnt be useful for multiplication/division
