Epistemologically speaking,  §

the number “1” is the original transcendental number. The feat is not in the act of representation or calculation, but in the construction of the unit that the symbol “1” represents, its excavation and delineation from miasma of existence as the result of a coherence of properties, sensations, and self-organizing cognitive processes.

All properties of numbers and matter, all of mathematics and science flows from the original transcendental moment of “1.” It’s really breathtaking when you think about it for a moment.
