One?s and Zero?s

Imagine being a nine-year-old boy, sitting down to do your math homework one day, a subject you normally hate, and the numbers themselves begin to move and appear before your very eyes as not just shapes but shapes within a larger context.
Think of caveman hieroglyphics. The abstract symbols and images are not the things they were drawn to represent. So to I learned as a young child that the numbers of our mathematical system were not the things they represent. We have always been told that math is an abstract concept; I was just the first modern man to see the numbers for what they truly were.
