[REBOL] Re: On ordinal and cardinal numbers...

From: kenneth:nwinet at: 9-Jul-2001 21:28

Dave, Thank you for the geographic analogy. I thought it was very good. So your voting for the third scenario, neither. Any of the five scenarios could have there proponents. So how do we come to an agreement? When a day starts is one of those things that is subject to a committee decision which makes it an artificial thing IMHO. Which is to say, it's not something to go to the mat over. However, it is one of those things that barring a political action we can agree on if we choose to. Your saying days are discontinuous at midnight? Doesn't sound good when I put it that way. ;-) Is it only the moment of midnight or any moment that's "too brief to belong to anything?" In other words, would July 9th 12:01am belong to July 9th, but July 9th 12:00am not? Respectfully, Ken.
