### 1d Point

A 1d point exists as pure form direct towards itself and through itself as a singular entity.

The 0d point stands in contrast to this 1d point as pure void. This void seperates the 1d point into further points which all relate through eachother regardless of distance.

A 1d point equals another 1d point thus all 1d points are the same point that acts through itself.

if 2 0d points are positioned next to each other, where does one begin and the other end?

What do you think the answer is? I know the answer but I won't give it away till I understand why you asked.

demarcations of nothing seem arbitrary at best and empty...

just another idea that cannot exist empirically

Isn't it the case that between any two real numbers there's another one? For example if x and y are two distinct real numbers, then (x + y)/2 is strictly between them. So there are no adjacent real numbers.

Of course you are right that this is not an empirical concept. Zero-dimensional points are purely mathematical. They're conceptual only, not physical. But mathematically, there are no adjacent points. Between any two there's an infinity of others. In fact every tiny nonzero open interval (excluding its endpoints) of the real line is topologically identical to the entire real line. That's why they call it a continuum.

A 1d point is directed in all directions.
