What is, "linear progress?"

One assertion progressing to another, assertion A progressing to assertion B.

What has that got to do with counting?

Counting does not involve any assertions at all, much less a progress of assertions, one leading to another. There is no order required in counting as long as all the items are counted.

Counting requires the assumption of phenomena through the senses where that which is assumed is asserted, or projected, upon the senses.

All counting requires a sequence of one number progressing x units at a time with this sequence being a recursion of x as x repeating.

I think you are confusing order with linear. The way one recites numbers as they count is an, "order," but it has nothing to do with being linear. All human behavior is ordered, in the sense, that one thing must be done before another, which is, "temporal," not, "linear." Some orders are linear, but most are not. Counting is not.

Linearism is the progression of one phenomenon to another. All counting necessitates to the progression of x number of units to x+x to x+x+x, etc. Even in counting in groups such as 13 then 5 then 17, each number requires a progression of 1 to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4, etc so that there is a meta linear progression amongst counting which appears as non linear. Even non linear counting necessitates 1 progressing to another number, through 1, thus a recursion of 1.
