There is no value for “3” when there is no “0” or “1” or “2”. Where as the alphabets it has nothing to do with it. The alphabets are unique, where numbers are interdependent.
And so I believe that the mind the intellectual being is symbolic representation of the numbers. And the human emotions which are so versatile are the unique alphabets. In case of numbers, that is why may be it relies on what it sees, and feels, and facts and figures.
Humans thought they use words as a media to communicate, but they judge on the facts and figures as the evaluation.
