Bruno: how about expanding our closed (mathematical) minds into not only decimal, binary, etc., but also a (hold on fast!) 12/17ary number systems? in that case 17 would be non-primary, divisible by 2,3,4,6 besides the 1. Just playing my mind on math. (You may have an even wider mind). Also zero can be "thought of" in non-human logic as participant in calculations.

John M PS: no response required indeed. My agnosticism at work.
