**Important:** This topic is based on proofs without words ( http://mathworld.wolfram.com/ProofwithoutWords.html ).

A one rotation of the Archimedean Spiral is exactly 1/3 of the circles area ( http://www.calstatela.edu/faculty/hmendel/Ancient%20Mathematics/Pappus/Bookiv/Pappus.iv.21-25/Pappus.iv.21_25.html#Prop.%2022 ):

If this area is made of infinitely many triangles (as can be seen in the picture below) , it cannot reach 1/3 exactly as 0.33333... cannot reach 1/3:

In order to understand better why 0.33333 < 1/3 please define a 1-1 mapping between each blue level of the multi-scaled Kochs fractal that is found below, and each member of the infinitely long addition 0.3 + 0.03 + 0.003 + 0.0003 + that is equivalent to 0.3333

( http://members.cox.net/fractalenc/fr6g6s.577m2.html )

In any arbitrary level that we choose, the outer boundary of this multi-fractal has sharp edges.

0.333 = 1/3 only if the outer boundary has no sharp edges.

Since this is not the case, then 0.333 < 1/3.

Actually, we can generalize this conclusion to any 0.xxx form and in this case 0.999 < 1 where 0.999 is a single path along a fractal that exists upon infinitely many different scales, where 1 is a smooth and non-composed element.

Now we can understand that a one rotation of the Archimedean Spiral is exactly 1/3 of the circles area only if we are no longer in a model of infinitely many elements, but in a model that is based on smooth and non-composed elements (and in this case the elements are a one rotation of a smooth and non-composed Archimedean Spiral and a one smooth and non-composed circle).

A model of infinitely many elements and a model of a non-composed element have a XOR connective between them.

Therefore the Cantorean *aleph0* cannot be considered as the cardinal of **N** , because **N** is a collection of infinitely many elements that cannot be completed exactly as 0.9999... < 1.

In other words, by defining the Cantorean *aleph0* as an **exact** cardinal of infinitely many elements, we are no longer in any relation with **N**, because **N** is based on a model of infinitely many elements and the Cantorean *aleph0* cannot be but a non-composed and infinitely long element, which is too strong to be used as an input by any mathematical tool, and therefore it cannot be manipulated by the language of Mathematics.

**Some words about Riemann's Ball: **

By using Riemann's Ball we can clearly distinguish between potential infinity and actual infinity.

As we can see from the above example, no infinitely many objects (where **an object = an intersection **in this model) can reach actual infinity.

In our example we represent only **Z*** numbers, but between any two of them we can find rational and irrational numbers.

Riemann's limits are 0 and oo (or -oo), and all our number systems are limited to potential infinities, existing in the open intervals (0,oo) or (-oo,0).

When we reach actual infinity, then we have no information for any method that defines infinity by infinitely many objects.

Also oo cannot be defined as a point at infinity in this model, because no intersection (therefore no point) can be found when we reach oo.

More information of this subject can be found in:

I am a **Monadist**.

In **Monadic Mathematics **there are two separated models of the non-finite:

**a)** A model that is based on the term "infinitely many ...".

**b)** A model that is based on the term "infinitely long (non-composed) ...".

The Cantorean universe is based only on (**a**) model.

Because of this reason Cantor did not understand that when he use an AND connective between totality (the term 'all') and a collection of infinitely many ... , he immediately find himself in (**b**) model.

Please read very carefully my Riemann's Ball argument , in order to understand the phase transition between (**a**) model and (**b**) model (and vise versa).

If you understand Riemann's Ball argument then you can clearly see that *Aleph0* cannot be but a (**b**) model.

Since there is a XOR connective between (**a**) model and (**b**) model, there is no relation between *Aleph0*, which is a (**b**) model, and set **N**, which is an (**a**) model.

**The foundations of Monadic Mathematics:**

A **scope** is a marked zone where an abstract/non-abstract discussable entity can be examined.

An **atom** is a non-composed **scope**.

Examples: {} (= an **empty scope**), . (= a **point**), ._. (=a **segment**),

__ or .__ or __. (= an** infinitely long entity**).

An **empty scope **is a marked zone without any content.

An example: {}

A **point** is a non-composed and non-empty **scope** that has no directions where a direction is < , > or < > .

An example: .

A **segment** is a non-composed and non-empty **scope** that has directions which are closed upon themselves, or has at least two reachable edges.

An example: O , .__.

Each **segment** can have a unique name, which is based on its ratio to some arbitrary **segment**, which its name is 0_1.

An **infinitely long entity **is a non-composed non-empty **scope** which is not closed on itself and has no more than one reachable **edge**.

An example: __ , .__ , __.

**Non-atom **(or **notom**) is a **scope** that includes at leat one **scope** as its content.

An example: {{}} ,{__} ,{ {},{...,{{}},{},{}}}, {... ,{{}} , . , ._.} etc.

A **sub-scope **is a **scope** that exists within another **scope**.

An **Open notom **(or **Onotom**) is a collection of **sub-scopes **that has no first **sub-scope **and not a last **sub-scope**, or a one and only one **infinitely long entity **with no **edges**.

An example: {... ,{},{},{}, ...} ,{__} ,{... ,{{}},{},{}, ...} etc.

A **Half-Closed notom **(or **Hnotom**) is a **scope** that includes a first **sub-scope **but not a last **sub-scope**, or a last **sub-scope **and not a first **sub-scope**.

Also a **Hnotom** can be based on a one **infinitely long entity **that has at least one reachable **edge**.

An example: {{},{},{}, }, {.__}, {__.} etc.

A **Closed notom **(or **Cnotom**) is a **scope** that includes a first **sub-scope** and a last **sub-scope**, and it does not include **Hnotom** or **Onotom**.

An example: {{},{},{}}, {{}}, {{}, {{},{{}}, ._.} etc.

A **Nested-Level **is a common environment for a finite or non-finite collection of **sub-scopes**.

If a **notom** includes identical **sub-scopes **( __ , .__ or __. are excluded), then it is called a **First-Order Collection** (or **FOC**).

An example:

,{... ,{},{},{}} ,{... ._. , ._. , ._.} ,{... ,{},{}, ...} ,{... , ._. , ._. , ...}

{{},{}} ,{{{}},{{}},{{}}} ,{... , {.},{.},{.}} ,{{._.},{._.}} etc.

The name of an **atom** or a **notom** within some **FOC** is determined by its internal property and/or its place in the collection. From this definition it is understood that each **atom** or **notom** within a **FOC**, has more than one name.

**Non-FOC **(or **NFOC**) is a nested-level that does not include identical **sub-scopes**.

An example:

,{... , {} , . , {}} ,{... , {._.} , ._. , ._.} ,{... ,{.},{}, ...} ,{... , ._. ,{._.} , ...}

{{},{.}} ,{{{}} ,{} ,{{}}} ,{... ,{},{.},{.}} ,{{},{._.}} etc.

Any **atom** ( __ is excluded) or **notom** has a unique name only if it can be distinguished from the other **atoms** or **notoms** that share with it the same **nested level**.

Let **redundancy** be: *more than one copy of the same entity can be found*.

Let **uncertainty** be: *more than a one unique name is related to an entity*.

**An edge and a point:**

A **point** is a non-composed and non-empty **scope** that has no directions where a direction is < , > or < > .

An example: .

An **edge** is an inseparable part of an **atom** that has a direction.

An example: ._. , .__ , __.

A more developed version of this framework (but with different names) can be found in:

http://www.geocities.com/complementarytheory/My-first-axioms.pdf

you seem to reject the notion of limits.

What is considered as a limit of some sequence that can be found upon infinitely many ordered scales, cannot be the limit of this sequence.

The reason is very simple, because if we examine the absolute value of the gap (the segment length) between any member in the sequence and the element that is considered as the limit of the sequence, we get the ratio 0_x/0 , where 0_x is the gap > 0 (which is a segment) and 0 is the gap between the limit to itself (which is a point).

From a point of view of a point (which is the hypothetic limit) each segment has the same length, and therefore nothing is converged to the point from the point's point of view, and the point cannot be considered as the limit of any segment.

The ratio 0_x/0 clearly gives us the notion that a point is not a limit of a segment (where a segment in this case is any gap > 0).

Instead of the limit concept, we can take any arbitrary segment and check the gaps (segments) relations of the sequence members, according to it (for example 0_x/0_s where 0_s is the arbitrary segment and 0_x is any member of the examined sequence).

I think DoronShadmi just thought he would show everyone some stuff he has been working on.

He came, he copied, he left.
