I was getting involved by the theoris brought forth by Dr.Hossein Arsham about
not being able to divide by zero and the orgin of zero. It was quiet
aweinspiring to hear him get into great detail about the reasons of not being
able to divide by zero and why it has been that way for as long as history can
remember. There are lots of mood points and facts that make you ponder zero.

I spent about and hour reading about the confusions about the zero saga and
found the dividing by zero arguments very interesting. This informational site
is structured very clearly. The user can easily get to the section they are
interested in just one click. The information presented is useful to both
teachers and students in explaining detailed reasons why we can't divide by
zero. Although some if the proof explanations were hard for me to understand,
Dr. Hossein Arsham goes into great detail of why the knowledge of not being able
to divide by zero is important and a very delicate matter. He goes on to
explain that not many instructors can explain this concept to their ("You can't
divide by zero . . . It's just something to remember,"). Dr. Arshan seems very
dedicated to presenting thorough information.
