Still an ontology as a truth system.

It's right here ---> 1

You are assuming a symbol, there are variations of how one is expressed.

Counting is individuation. From phenomenology - when you bracket some object of experience. You individuate it. One.

True, I will will have to agree to that. But a problem still occurs bracket is not defined and all experiences (such as me tasting ice cream) require an assumption of the senses.

Bracketing is a process of divergence, but divergence has no form except through a projection on one axiom away from another. The only form that occurs is the line as a projective entity. But like the point, as it is composed of points, the line is assumed.

You want me to show you how to count? OK.

. (one)

. (two)

. (three)

. (four)

1,3,5,6...

2,4,6,8...

1,4,7,10...

1,5,8,11...

Etc.

There are infinite ways of counting...thus we are left with an assumption of counting as one infinite dynamic set. This still requires you to "show me 1".
