> What do you mean all numbers are the same?
I mean they are like blades of grass. One is no better or worse than any other. Drops of water in the Ocean: "What is your favorite drop of water in the Ocean?" Meaningless statement.
I am reminded of a time I was driving with a friend and the odometer on his car rolled over to 70000. "Wow! - made it to 70000!" he said.
I can't see it. At some point, it will be 73248. Will he then say "Wow! - made it to 73248!"? If so, what about 82729?
All drops of water are of equal interest in my mind.
All colors and shapes are of equal interest.
All pebbles on the beach are of equal interest.
All numbers are equal in interest. Well, not quite: Although no number is my "favorite", whatever that means, still some numbers are worth memorizing: my Social Security number, my ZIP code and telephone number, etc. So in that sense, some numbers are not "the same".
