We have basic words for the numbers zero to three, so why not use them to count?

- None (0)
- Single (1)
- pair (2)
- Multiple (3+ but we’ll use it as three)

So with those “digits” we can construct some numbers:

- Single
- pair
- Multiple
- Single nothing
- Single single
- Single pair
- Single multiple
- Pair of nothing
- Pair of singels
- Pair of pairs

And of course we can construct bigger numbers like:

42 = 4²×2+4¹×2+4⁰×2 = pair of pairs of pairs

128 = 4³×2 = pair of absolute complete nothinges
For this last one I just use some adjectives to repeat the “nothing” as it looks really weird with multiple nothing in a row.

The distance between Stockholm and Gothenburg is a single multiple of none multiple multiples

Could I have a single multiple of bananas please?

Base 6 is the most useful.

But THIS one goes to 11.
