What if???

There weren't any numbers to guide us?

How would we know a house,phone number,football scores,the share market,stock exchange,quanities,no telling of the time, or the date.....

Can we live in a world without numbers????

Thank goodness the phone has the alphabet on it!!!! How would we know our age? Would we be stuck there too?
No, we cannot live in a world without numbers ....

I agree, but it was the Greeks that come up with the alphabet. Middle Bronze Age (2000-1500 BCE):

Can you read hieroglyphs?

Egyptian hieratic script, the less elaborate form of the hieroglyphs

hmmm ... *me thinks* ... it should always have been in our minds, I guess.

I think it may be very interesting if we lost numbers today. Would be confusing to say the least ... lol

Maybe we would have found a way to use colour to represent a number, so as you grow older, your colour would change! heheheee ... hmmmm ?

Maybe if we didn't have numbers, I wouldn't spend time counting how many buttons are on the phone, remote control, etc. I guess that is my of my obessive compulsion disorder that includes numbers.
