Just saw an article saying the concept of zero is younger than Jesus Christ. Said article also said Aristotle didn't believe in zero. The first, I could roll my eyes at and figure she'd been misinformed. The first paired with the second -- no. Also, this article is by someone attempting to be extremely deep. She Informs the Reader about Dante and Galileo later in the piece. (You know what I mean by Informs the Reader: it's opposed to Sharing With the Reader.)

I have no idea if Aristotle believed in zero, and I do not trust the internet to tell me the truth about this. I do believe, however, that I have just reached my limit. It's been coming for a long time, but now it's very much here. I am tired of trying to bail out the sea with a teaspoon. Maybe this is what middle age is.
