Zero means Everything
Lets see what happend to the meaning of one of the most mystical symbols we
could find in mathematics, number
zero.
According to modern dictionaries, this little number means nothing.
Is it true or not? We shall investigate this topic today to find out what
happened in the last 7 thousand years, and who may have changed its meaning, for
personal purposes, naturally.
I shall compile here some of the standard translations and meanings, just to
give you an idea, and then we will try to look for the sound itself, and proceed
backwards towards the source meaning and original root.
c.1600, from It. zero, from M.L. zephirum, from Arabic sifr "cipher,"
translation of Skt. sunyam "empty place, desert, naught" (see
cipher).
A brief history of the invention of "zero" can be found
here.
Meaning "worthless person" is recorded from 1813. The verb zero in is 1944, from
the noun, on the notion of instrument adjustments. Zero tolerance first recorded
1972, originally U.S. political in language.
History of Zero
Historical scientists categorize the types of number systems peoples use, much the same way philologists break down languages into "analytic," "agglutinative," "inflectional," etc.
The path that leads to the discovery of "0" lies only in the most advanced type of number system, which is called "positional" because the value of a character depends on its position. Our modern way of counting is positional. The base figure "5" has a different value in 514 and in 145, determined by its position.
The Romans, Greeks, Hebrews (and Aztecs and preIslamic Arabs and a great many others) used an "additive" system, which is fundamentally a transcription of counting. A Roman "V" meant "five" and that's all it could mean.
An additive system can develop into a positional one  the abacus has a tendency to suggest the positional model  but as far as we know, the positional concept has emerged in only four places: c.2000 B.C.E., in Babylon; around the start of the Common Era, in China; between the 4th and 9th centuries C.E. among the Mayan astronomerpriests; and in India.
Positional systems have certain features in common. One is that each base number is denoted by a discrete symbol, purely conventional and not a graphic representation of the number itself (i.e., not "four slashes" for "four," as the Greeks and Romans had). Imagine the scribal confusion if the Romans had tried to use positional mathematics with their numbering system: "423" would be IIII II III, while "342" would be III IIII II.
Another feature of positional number systems is that they lack special symbols for numbers which are orders of magnitude of the base number. Romans had a symbol for "10," and a separate symbol for "100" (10 x 10) and another for "1,000" (10 x 100) and so on. This is necessary in an additive system, for simplicity of notation and recordkeeping, but it is incompatible with a positional system.
But think about the positional system. You come across a big stumbling block when you try to write a number like 2,002. For a Roman, that's no problem: MMII. But in a positional system, you have to find a way to indicate the absence of "tens" and "hundreds." You could leave a gap (the Babylonians did this at first), but that opens the door to more scribal errors, and anyway how do you indicate two gaps, as in 2,002?
It becomes necessary to have a "zero," a character that signifies "empty." Maybe not necessary, because the brilliant Chinese mathematicians somehow managed to run a positional system without making this discovery. The Babylonians (eventually), the Indians, and the Mayans did discover it, however.
But the next step, the true miracle moment, is to realize that that "symbol for nothing" that you're using is not just a placeholder, but an actual number: that "empty" and "nothing" are one. The null number is as real as "5" and "2,002"  that's when the door blows open and the light blazes forth and numbers come alive. Without that, there's no modern mathematics, no algebra, no modern science.
And as far as we know, that has only happened once in human history, somewhere in India, in the intellectual flowering under the Gupta Dynasty, about the 6th century C.E. There was no "miracle moment," of course. It was a long, slow process.
The daunting realization, for heirs of "Western Civilization," is that the Greek and Roman cultures we revere were benighted mathematically, plodding along in the most primitive of number systems. But as champions of these cultures point out, we can admire their accomplishments all the more for that.
Some authorities, however, put up strong resistance to the theory of the Indian origin of modern mathematics. At first, they were mired in the same religionbased worldview that denied the IndoEuropean linguistic link: the number system simply had to be Hebrew in origin, because nothing else would comport with the Bible (so they thought). Later, however, resistance took refuge in unwillingness to concede cultural superiority to nonWestern civilizations.
It does seem to be a glaring omission in the "Greek miracle." Historical scientists in the early part of the 20th century (such as G.R. Kaye, N. Bubnov, B. Carra de Vaux, etc.) argued strongly against an Indian origin, insisting the numbers evolved in ancient Greece, perhaps among neoPythagoreans, were taken to Alexandria, and from there spread to Rome and Spain in the west (from whence medieval Europe rediscovered them), and, via trade routes, to India in the east.
Among the many problems with this idea is the utter lack of documentary evidence for anything like a positional number system in Greece or Rome, and its requirement that we believe ancient people had made this wonderful practical discovery, yet did not put it to any use.
Speculation about a Greek origin of the ten "Arabic numerals" goes back to the 16th century in Europe. But before that, there are many sources in Europe and the preIslamic Levant that frankly attribute them to India. The earliest depiction of them in English, "The Crafte of Nombrynge" (c.1350), correctly identifies them as "teen figurys of Inde."
The Arabic sources, from the earliest times, refer to them as arqam al hind  "figures from India"  or some such name. The Muslims of that day, generally contemptuous of nonIslamic culture, had no problem conceding the invention of this number system to India.
In Etymology
The word "zero" came via French zéro from Venetian zero, which (together with cipher) came via Italian zefiro from Arabic صفر, ṣafira = "it was empty", ṣifr = "zero", "nothing".^{[27]}
In mathematics
Elementary algebra
The number 0 is the smallest nonnegative integer. The natural number following 0 is 1 and no natural number precedes 0. The number 0 may or may not be considered a natural number, but it is a whole number and hence a rational number and a real number (as well as an algebraic number and a complex number).
The number 0 is neither positive nor negative and appears in the middle of a number line. It is neither a prime number nor a composite number. It cannot be prime because it has an infinite number of factors and cannot be composite because it cannot be expressed by multiplying prime numbers (0 must always be one of the factors).^{[28]} Zero is, however, even (see parity of zero).
The following are some basic (elementary) rules for dealing with the number 0. These rules apply for any real or complex number x, unless otherwise stated.
The expression ^{0}⁄_{0}, which may be obtained in an attempt to determine the limit of an expression of the form ^{f}^{(x)}⁄_{g}_{(x)} as a result of applying the lim operator independently to both operands of the fraction, is a socalled "indeterminate form". That does not simply mean that the limit sought is necessarily undefined; rather, it means that the limit of ^{f}^{(x)}⁄_{g}_{(x)}, if it exists, must be found by another method, such as l'Hôpital's rule.
The sum of 0 numbers is 0, and the product of 0 numbers is 1. The factorial 0! evaluates to 1.

Physics
The value zero plays a special role for many physical quantities. For some quantities, the zero level is naturally distinguished from all other levels, whereas for others it is more or less arbitrarily chosen. For example, on the Kelvin temperature scale, zero is the coldest possible temperature (negative temperatures exist but are not actually colder), whereas on the Celsius scale, zero is arbitrarily defined to be at the freezing point of water. Measuring sound intensity in decibels or phons, the zero level is arbitrarily set at a reference value—for example, at a value for the threshold of hearing. In physics, the zeropoint energy is the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may possess and is the energy of the ground state of the system.
Chemistry
Zero has been proposed as the atomic number of the theoretical element tetraneutron. It has been shown that a cluster of four neutrons may be stable enough to be considered an atom in its own right. This would create an element with no protons and no charge on its nucleus.
As early as 1926, Professor Andreas von Antropoff coined the term neutronium for a conjectured form of matter made up of neutrons with no protons, which he placed as the chemical element of atomic number zero at the head of his new version of the periodic table. It was subsequently placed as a noble gas in the middle of several spiral representations of the periodic system for classifying the chemical elements.
In computer science
The most common practice throughout human history has been to start counting at one, and this is the practice in early classic computer science programming languages such as Fortran and COBOL. However, in the late 1950s LISP introduced zerobased numbering for arrays while Algol 58 introduced completely flexible basing for array subscripts (allowing any positive, negative, or zero integer as base for array subscripts), and most subsequent programming languages adopted one or other of these positions. For example, the elements of an array are numbered starting from 0 in C, so that for an array of n items the sequence of array indices runs from 0 to n−1. This permits an array element's location to be calculated by adding the index directly to address of the array, whereas 1 based languages precalculate the array's base address to be the position one element before the first.
There can be confusion between 0 and 1 based indexing, for example Java's JDBC indexes parameters from 1 although Java itself uses 0based indexing.
In databases, it is possible for a field not to have a value. It is then said to have a null value. For numeric fields it is not the value zero. For text fields this is not blank nor the empty string. The presence of null values leads to threevalued logic. No longer is a condition either true or false, but it can be undetermined. Any computation including a null value delivers a null result. Asking for all records with value 0 or value not equal 0 will not yield all records, since the records with value null are excluded.
A null pointer is a pointer in a computer program that does not point to any object or function. In C, the integer constant 0 is converted into the null pointer at compile time when it appears in a pointer context, and so 0 is a standard way to refer to the null pointer in code. However, the internal representation of the null pointer may be any bit pattern (possibly different values for different data types).
In mathematics − 0 = 0 = + 0, both −0 and +0 represent exactly the same number, i.e., there is no "negative zero" distinct from zero. In some signed number representations (but not the two's complement representation used to represent integers in most computers today) and most floating point number representations, zero has two distinct representations, one grouping it with the positive numbers and one with the negatives; this latter representation is known as negative zero.

zero: circa 1600, (either from Middle Latin zephirum, or French zéro or its source Italian zero, for *zefiro) in any case from Arabic sifr "cipher", itself a translation of Sanskrit śūnya "empty place, desert, naught".
So these sources seem to agree that:
The concept of zero as a number and not merely a symbol for separation is attributed to India where by the 9th century AD practical calculations were carried out using zero, which was treated like any other number, even in case of division. The Indian scholar Pingala (circa 5th2nd century BC) used binary numbers in the form of short and long syllables (the latter equal in length to two short syllables), making it similar to Morse code. He and his contemporary Indian scholars used the Sanskrit word śūnya to refer to zero or void.
however it does not say Indians discovered it, it does says they were the practical users
The word "zero" came via French zéro from Venetian zero, which (together with cipher) came via Italian zefiro from Arabic صفر, ṣafira = "it was empty", ṣifr = "zero", "nothing".
Mmmmmmmhhh mmmmmmmmmhhh mmmmmmmmhhhh
In suppose that Chinese language as well using LING word as a zero concept, has been forced into this translation, ( and here, we can find again another completely different root and sound. Gosh, what a copy paste bad job they made ). An take a look at the use of the compound ground zero, interesting enough to say that it was created in 1946, originally with reference to atomic blasts. In reference to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on New York, it was in use by Sept. 13. I love when they mix up things and do not even remember when they started to use them or forgot to erase them from documents and files.
0 (zero) is both a number and a numerical digit used to represent that number in numerals. As a number, zero means nothing—an absence of other values. It plays a central role in mathematics as the identity element of the integers, real numbers, and many other algebraic structures. As a digit, zero is used as a placeholder in place value systems. Historically, it was the last digit to come into use. In the English language, zero may also be called nil when a number, o/oh when a numeral, and nought/naught in either context.
0 as a number
0 is the integer that precedes the positive 1, and follows −1. In most (if not all) numerical systems, 0 was identified before the idea of 'negative integers' was accepted.
Zero is an integer which quantifies a count or an amount of null size; that is, if the number of your brothers is zero, that means the same thing as having no brothers, and if something has a weight of zero, it has no weight. If the difference between the number of pieces in two piles is zero, it means the two piles have an equal number of pieces. Before counting starts, the result can be assumed to be zero; that is the number of items counted before you count the first item and counting the first item brings the result to one. And if there are no items to be counted, zero remains the final result.
While mathematicians all accept zero as a number, some nonmathematicians would say that zero is not a number, arguing one cannot have zero of something. Others hold that if you have a bank balance of zero, you have a specific quantity of money in your account, namely none. It is that latter view which is accepted by mathematicians and most others.
Almost all historians omit the year zero from the proleptic Gregorian and Julian calendars, but astronomers include it in these same calendars. However, the phrase Year Zero may be used to describe any event considered so significant that it virtually starts a new time reckoning.
0 as a numeral
The modern numeral 0 is normally written as a circle or (rounded) rectangle. In oldstyle fonts with text figures, 0 is usually the same height as a lowercase x.
On the sevensegment displays of calculators, watches, etc., 0 is usually written with six line segments, though on some historical calculator models it was written with four line segments. This variant glyph has not caught on.
It is important to distinguish the number zero (as in the "zero brothers" example above) from the numeral or digit zero, used in numeral systems using positional notation. Successive positions of digits have higher values, so the digit zero is used to skip a position and give appropriate value to the preceding and following digits. A zero digit is not always necessary in a positional number system: bijective numeration provides a possible counterexample.
Etymology
The word zero comes through the Arabic literal translation of the Sanskrit śūnya ( शून्य ), meaning void or empty, into ṣifr (صفر) meaning empty or vacant. Through transliteration this became zephyr or zephyrus in Latin. The word zephyrus already meant "west wind" in Latin; the proper noun Zephyrus was the Roman god of the west wind (after the Greek god Zephyros). With its new use for the concept of zero, zephyr came to mean a light breeze—"an almost nothing."^{[1]} This became zefiro in Italian, which was contracted to zero in Venetian, giving the modern English word.
As the Hindu decimal zero and its new mathematics spread from the Arab world to Europe in the Middle Ages, words derived from sifr and zephyrus came to refer to calculation, as well as to privileged knowledge and secret codes. According to Ifrah, "in thirteenthcentury Paris, a 'worthless fellow' was called a… cifre en algorisme, i.e., an 'arithmetical nothing.'"^{[1]} The Arabic root gave rise to the modern French chiffre, which means digit, figure, or number; chiffrer, to calculate or compute; and chiffré, encrypted; as well as to the English word cipher. Below are some more examples:
Here are the words used to express this concepts in different languages:
Where we can find two different root as you may see: the “zevir, cifra, cipher” class sound and the shuniat sonne, class one. Note that zero in Greek is translated as Μηδέν (Mèden). Ops…
History
Early history of zero
By the mid 2nd millennium B.C.E., the Babylonians had a sophisticated sexagesimal (base60) positional numeral system. The lack of a positional value (or zero) was indicated by a space between sexagesimal numerals. By 300 B.C.E. a punctuation symbol (two slanted wedges) was coopted as a placeholder in the same Babylonian system. In a tablet unearthed at Kish (dating from perhaps as far back as 700 B.C.E.), the scribe Bêlbânaplu wrote his zeroes with three hooks, rather than two slanted wedges.^{[2]}
The Babylonian placeholder was not a true zero because it was not used alone. Nor was it used at the end of a number. Thus numbers like 2 and 120 (2×60), 3 and 180 (3×60), 4 and 240 (4×60), etc. looked the same because the larger numbers lacked a final sexagesimal placeholder. Only context could differentiate them.
Records show that the ancient Greeks seemed unsure about the status of zero as a number: they asked themselves "How can nothing be something?," leading to interesting philosophical and, by the Medieval period, religious arguments about the nature and existence of zero and the vacuum. The paradoxes of Zeno of Elea depend in large part on the uncertain interpretation of zero. (The ancient Greeks even questioned that 1 was a number.)
Early use of something like zero by the Indian scholar Pingala (circa 5th2nd century B.C.E.), implied at first glance by his use of binary numbers, is only the modern binary representation using 0 and 1 applied to Pingala's binary system, which used short and long syllables (the latter equal in length to two short syllables), making it similar to Morse code.^{[3]}^{[4]} Nevertheless, he and other Indian scholars at the time used the Sanskrit word śūnya (the origin of the word zero after a series of transliterations and a literal translation) to refer to zero or void.

few surviving examples of EpiOlmec script.
History of zero
The Long Count calendar developed in southcentral Mexico required the use of zero as a placeholder within its vigesimal (base20) positional numeral system. A shell glyph— —was used as a zero symbol for these Long Count dates, the earliest of which (on Stela 2 at Chiapa de Corzo, Chiapas) has a date of 36 B.C.E. Since the eight earliest Long Count dates appear outside the Maya homeland,^{[6]} it is assumed that the use of zero in the Americas predated the Maya and was possibly the invention of the Olmecs. Indeed, many of the earliest Long Count dates were found within the Olmec heartland, although the fact that the Olmec civilization had come to an end by the fourth century B.C.E., several centuries before the earliest known Long Count dates, argues against the zero being an Olmec invention.
Although zero became an integral part of Maya numerals, it of course did not influence Old World numeral systems.
By 130 C.E., Ptolemy, influenced by Hipparchus and the Babylonians, was using a symbol for zero (a small circle with a long overbar) within a sexagesimal numeral system otherwise using alphabetic Greek numerals. Because it was used alone, not just as a placeholder, this Hellenistic zero was perhaps the first documented use of a number zero in the Old World. However, the positions were usually limited to the fractional part of a number (called minutes, seconds, thirds, fourths, etc.)—they were not used for the integral part of a number.
Another zero was used in tables alongside Roman numerals by 525 (first known use by Dionysius Exiguus), but as a word, nulla, meaning nothing, not as a symbol. When division produced zero as a remainder, nihil, also meaning nothing, was used. These medieval zeros were used by all future medieval computists (calculators of Easter). An isolated use of their initial, N, was used in a table of Roman numerals by Bede or a colleague about 725, as a zero symbol.
The oldest known text to use zero is the Jain text from India entitled the Lokavibhaaga, dated 458 C.E. ^{ [7]}
The first indubitable appearance of a symbol for zero appears in 876 in India on a stone tablet in Gwalior. Documents on copper plates, with the same small o in them, dated back as far as the sixth century C.E. abound.^{[8]}
Rules of Brahmagupta
The rules governing the use of zero appeared for the first time in the book Brahmasputha Siddhanta written in 628 by Brahmagupta (598670). Here, Brahmagupta considers not only zero but also negative numbers, and the algebraic rules for the elementary operations of arithmetic with such numbers. In some instances, his rules differ from the modern standard. Brahamagupta's rules are given below:^{[9]}
In saying "zero divided by zero is zero," Brahmagupta differs from the modern position. Mathematicians normally do not assign a value, whereas computers and calculators will sometimes assign NaN, which means "not a number." Moreover, nonzero positive or negative numbers when divided by zero are either assigned no value, or a value of unsigned infinity, positive infinity, or negative infinity. Once again, these assignments are not numbers, and are associated more with computer science than pure mathematics, where in most contexts no assignment is made. (See division by zero)
Zero as a decimal digit
See also: History of the HinduArabic numeral system.
Positional notation without the use of zero (using an empty space in tabular arrangements, or the word kha "emptiness") is known to have been in use in India from the sixth century. The earliest certain use of zero as a decimal positional digit dates to the ninth century. The glyph for the zero digit was written in the shape of a dot, and consequently called bindu "dot."
The HinduArabic numeral system reached Europe in the eleventh century, via the Iberian Peninsula through Spanish Muslims the Moors, together with knowledge of astronomy and instruments like the astrolabe, first imported by Gerbert of Aurillac (c. 9401003). They came to be known as "Arabic numerals." The Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa (c. 11701250), also called Fibonacci,* was instrumental in bringing the system into European mathematics in 1202. Here, Leonardo states:
There, following my introduction, as a consequence of marvelous instruction in the art, to the nine digits of the Hindus, the knowledge of the art very much appealed to me before all others, and for it I realized that all its aspects were studied in Egypt, Syria, Greece, Sicily, and Provence, with their varying methods… But all this even, and the algorism, as well as the art of Pythagoras, I considered as almost a mistake in respect to the method of the Hindus. (Modus Indorum)… The nine Indian figures are: 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. With these nine figures, and with the sign 0 … any number may be written.
Here Leonardo of Pisa uses the word sign "0," indicating it is like a sign to do operations like addition or multiplication, but he did not recognize zero as a number in its own right.
In mathematics
Elementary algebra
Zero (0) is the lowest nonnegative integer. The natural number following zero is one and no natural number precedes zero. Zero may or may not be counted as a natural number, depending on the definition of natural numbers.
In set theory, the number zero is the cardinality of the empty set: if one does not have any apples, then one has zero apples. Therefore, in some cases, zero is defined to be the empty set.
Zero is neither positive nor negative, neither a prime number nor a composite number, nor is it a unit.
The following are some basic rules for dealing with the number zero. These rules apply for any complex number x, unless otherwise stated.
The expression "0/0" is an "indeterminate form." That does not simply mean that it is undefined; rather, it means that if f(x) and g(x) both approach 0 as x approaches some number, then f(x)/g(x) could approach any finite number or ∞ or −∞; it depends on which functions f and g are. See L'Hopital's rule.

Numbering from 1 or 0?
The most common practice throughout human history has been to start counting at one. Nevertheless, in computer science zero has become the standard starting point. For example, in almost all old programming languages, an array starts from 1 by default. As programming languages have developed, it has become more common that an array starts from zero by default, the "first" item in the array being item 0. In particular, the popularity of the programming language "C" in the 1980s has made this approach common.
One reason for this convention is that modular arithmetic normally describes a set of N numbers as containing 0,1,2,… N1 in order to contain the additive identity. Because of this, many arithmetic concepts (such as hash tables) are less elegant to express in code unless the array starts at zero.
In certain cases, counting from zero improves the efficiency of various algorithms, such as in searching or sorting arrays. Improved efficiency means that the algorithm takes either less time, less resources, or both, to complete a given task.
This situation can lead to some confusion in terminology. In a zerobased indexing scheme, the first element is "element number zero"; likewise, the twelfth element is "element number eleven." Therefore, an analogy from the ordinal numbers to the quantity of objects numbered appears; the highest index of n objects will be (n1) and referred to the n:th element. For this reason, the first element is often referred to as the zeroth element to eliminate any possible doubt.
Null value
In databases a field can have a null value. This is equivalent to the field not having a value. For numeric fields it is not the value zero. For text fields this is not blank nor the empty string. The presence of null values leads to threevalued logic. No longer is a condition either true or false, but it can be undetermined. Any computation including a null value delivers a null result. Asking for all records with value 0 or value not equal 0 will not yield all records, since the records with value null are excluded.
Null pointer
A null pointer is a pointer in a computer program that does not point to any object or function, which means that when it appears in a program or code, it tells the computer to take no action on the associated portion of the code.
Negative zero
In some signed number representations (but not the two's complement representation predominant today) and most floating point number representations, zero has two distinct representations, one grouping it with the positive numbers and one with the negatives; this latter representation is known as negative zero. Representations with negative zero can be troublesome, because the two zeros will compare equal but may be treated differently by some operations.
Distinguishing zero from O
The ovalshaped zero and circular letter O together came into use on modern character displays. The zero with a dot in the center seems to have originated as an option on IBM 3270 controllers (this has the problem that it looks like the Greek letter Theta). The slashed zero, looking identical to the letter O other than the slash, is used in oldstyle ASCII graphic sets descended from the default typewheel on the venerable ASR33 Teletype. This format causes problems because of its similarity to the symbol ∅, representing the empty set, as well as for certain Scandinavian languages which use Ø as a letter.
The convention which has the letter O with a slash and the zero without was used at IBM and a few other early mainframe makers; this is even more problematic for Scandinavians because it means two of their letters collide. Some Burroughs/Unisys equipment displays a zero with a reversed slash. And yet another convention common on early line printers left zero unornamented but added a tail or hook to the letterO so that it resembled an inverted Q or cursive capital letterO.
The typeface used on some European number plates for cars distinguish the two symbols by making the zero rather eggshaped and the O more circular, but most of all by slitting open the zero on the upper right side, so the circle is not closed any more (as in German plates). The typeface chosen is called fälschungserschwerende Schrift (abbr.: FE Schrift), meaning "unfalsifiable script." Note that those used in the United Kingdom do not differentiate between the two as there can never be any ambiguity if the design is correctly spaced.
In paper writing one may not distinguish the 0 and O at all, or may add a slash across it in order to show the difference, although this sometimes causes ambiguity in regard to the symbol for the null set.

zero (zîr'ō) Pronunciation
Key Our Living Language : Although the origin of zero is controversial, some historians believe that it was invented by the Babylonians in about 500 BCE. In the sixth century, it was discovered by the Hindus and Chinese, and 700 years later, it reached the Western world via the Arabs. Zero is the only integer (whole number) that is neither positive nor negative. In a sense, zero makes negative numbers possible, as a negative number added to its positive counterpart always equals zero. When zero is added to or subtracted from a number, it leaves the number at its original value. Zero is essential as a position holder in the system known as positional notation. In the number 203, for example, there are two hundreds, zero tens, and three ones. Zero indicates that the value of the tens place is zero. In the number 1024, zero indicates that the value of the hundreds place is zero. Scientists use the term absolute zero (0° Kelvin) to refer to the (unattainable) theoretically lowest possible temperature, at which the kinetic energy of molecules is zero.

zero definition

Dictionary of American Slang
This one from the FOLDOC Computing Dictionary
1. 0,
ASCI character 48. Numeric
zero, as opposed to the letter "O" (the 15th letter of the English alphabet). In
their unmodified forms they look a lot alike, and various
kluges invented to make them
visually distinct have compounded the confusion.
If your zero is centredotted and letterO is not, or if letterO looks almost
rectangular but zero looks more like an American football stood on end (or the
reverse), you're probably looking at a modern character display (though the
dotted zero seems to have originated as an option on
IBM 3270 controllers). If your
zero is slashed but letterO is not, you're probably looking at an oldstyle
ASCII graphic set descended
from the default typewheel on the venerable
ASR33
Teletype (Scandinavians, for
whom slashedO is a letter, curse this arrangement).
If letterO has a slash across it and the zero does not, your display is tuned
for a very old convention used at
IBM and a few other early
mainframe makers (Scandinavians curse *this* arrangement even more, because it
means two of their letters collide). Some
Burroughs/Unisys
equipment displays a zero with a *reversed* slash. And yet another convention
common on early
line printers left zero
unornamented but added a tail or hook to the letterO so that it resembled an
inverted Q or cursive capital letterO.

2. To set to zero. Usually said of small pieces of data, such as bits or words
(especially in the construction "zero out").
3. To erase; to discard all data from. Said of disks and directories, where
"zeroing" need not involve actually writing zeroes throughout the area being
zeroed. One may speak of something being "logically zeroed" rather than being
"physically zeroed".

scribble.

This word was introduced my Iacopo in 1307, who writes that zeuero means nothing, and in 1340 another writer says that Greeks call this symbol chiper.
I must go back
to Sanskrit now, before I start to become nervous…..
I said that the root sound was “cipher” or “sifr”, “zevir”, “savir sound”, so I
will look for the “root sound words” to see if they express the meaning we know.
( Nothing, void, naught ). Now we shall compare the meanings of words, compounds
etc… found in Sanskrit, Indian language, to see if all this makes sense. Savir

We found something, ok, so let’s see what they use to say zero:
शून्य zUnya n. zero edit प्रकेवल शून्य prakevala zUnya n. absolute zero [ Phys. ] edit बिन्दु bindu m. zero or cypher edit शुन्यविभ्रमशोधन zunyavibhramazodhana n. correcting for zero error
Wow, a
completely different root. I remember that in Greek the sound “dzj” “dj” meant
something like un separable,
Dza in greek is a prefix that means inseparable, in the common sense of ONE,
entire, whole… that unites everything, and could be drawn with a simple
pictogram of a big O, even to express the meaning of Sky, considering the
totality of creation.
What’s happened then? .

Looking for the word zavir ( zero ) in
sanskrit, we shall write savir, as letter Z grapheme is not included in Sanskrit
alphabet, or try to re create the sound with a couple of letters like dj, tsd,
ds, ts, tj, etc… to see if words and compounds of similar sounds could mean
“whole, or totality”, like Sky, which is symbolized in written language by a
circle, O WITH THE VALUE OFF ALL, EVERYTHING, AND NOT NOTHING, OR ZERO AS SO

On the other
hand, We will find “suniath zuniath“ to express ( SUMA in fact ) the meanings
of SKY, and the translations void, empty, blank, hollow, cipher, absence,
nothingness in Sanskrit, that come from a different roots and are pronounced in
a totally different way. These are the proof of an existing word and sound
+compounds that express the Zero concept better than the zephyr sound, that has
a different meaning.

So apparently all this comes to a simple conclusion: 0, ZERO, means everything and not nothing.
As it contains everything, and it is the symbol of the sun, of the sky, of a city, of the ring, that we find in petro glyphs and ideograms. Some other sound like “Sun, zun, ( zen maybe ), shum, etc… should be used to express the concept of “Zero”, whilst “ZEVIR” , “cipher”, “SAVIR”, should be interpreted as “totality, where we can see that zephyr comes after the concept of sky, being a specific wind that blows in the sky, the greatest, highest value, the container etc… and SUM, which stands for the “concept of addition “of something to something else, being the starting value that we should add to a zero value, to obtain the number we have got.
Reducing
the concept of Zero to the its opposite meaning, makes sense only from a
philosophical or religious point of view. Once we know that unity, O, can be
expressed by the symbol of ZERO, then we will notice that any other number will
eventually mean a subdivision of the entire.
Someone did not want us to know that if God is Zero, then One, is the symbol of
separateness.
So, every thought based on this mistake, originated by the mystification of the
fallen Angels, will express a peculiar characteristic of an Ego, that has parted
from God, Unity and Oneness.
The key to the understanding of the multiverse can be found in the nexus of the rings. Wheels within wheels turn incessantly, whilst separate, ignorant and crazy spinning tops, disconnected from others and the world, would like to own it acting as if they were alone, for their selfish pleasure and purposes.
Sense and sensibility should be regarded as means to reach and understand, and those who take pleasure in them, should be warned. Harmonic Unity is what we need, and chains of numbers ARE STILL CHAINS.
Division creates sides, whilst conflict generates sufferance. Unity is the path.
"A typical example of diverted number misinterpretation, said Mister Holmes to Doctor Watson".
