Um... the fact that math works, and it has for thousands of years, and
if it were as you suggest, math in the world would be inconsistent and
not work. 2+2=4, not 5.

Suppose you take the world of people who understand math better than you do?
Suppose you refrain from pestering SL4 with ideas that you know are
not welcome here?
