Number philosophy(One relativity)

Number can mean perfect logic for just nature. But number also is for philosophy as logic and letter, together. So number and philosophy mean the same. And I take monism for philosophy, so everything is one. Number is not question relativity for philosophy as it has it. So relativity can be one.

Take exactly 3.737 candles to the top of a mountain and light them at dusk.

In the light of these candles you will understand the OP.

I'd rather stay at home and read the tea leaves.

tea

China has much good tea. When moonlight falling into the mountains just like snow, millions of stars signing in the night sky, the stream water flowing slightly in the valley,it would be a dreamy affair to share a bottle of good wine with friends between the grass , the flowers, and trees

If you want to study the links between logic and maths try:
Principia Mathematica by Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell

I haven't read it myself, but I understand it explains from first principles why 1+1=2 (by means of set theory).

1+1=1?

I drank one bottle of wine every night and felt it's not so enough and then took one more, when I was satisfied , I found two empty bottles in front of me, it's a simple and iron logic. But I think that the best principle in cosmos is just only one empty bottle appear

1 + 1 = 1 for small values of 1.

Math and philosophy are very different endeavors defined very differently. I.e.

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/de...on/mathematics
The abstract science of number, quantity, and space, either as abstract concepts (pure mathematics), or as applied to other disciplines such as physics and engineering (applied mathematics)
https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/philosophy
The study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline.
Namely, math is an abstract science - very rigid logic, and philosophy isn't. In math there is one and only one answer set to a problem whereas there is nothing like that in philosophy. Math is full of answers and philosophy is full of questions.

I particularly like this observation.
I might borrow it sometime.
Thanks.
