WTF?

You may want to revisit this.

For example: a volume knob, zero is the lowest. same with maths, surely.

Negative numbers demonstrate otherwise.

What you're demonstrating is wilfull ignorance.

How is zero "absolute"?

Because debt is impossible. You can't have less than 0 dollars.
You're talking about counting things empirically, not about math.

It is the pre-established level about which you can not go lower than.

But you can.
It doesnt matter how many times you repeat the lie.

You have $100 I take it off you. I can not take more off you than the $100. zero is the lowest.

RE: Why does 2-2-2- = -2 and not 0?
I sort of see what you're saying OP, 2-2 is zero that much is obvious because 2 away from 2 is nothing left.

2-2 = 0

However you cannot take 2 from nothing, it is nothing so in your logic 0-2 is a nonsensical concept.

But I think the idea is more of a vector than a quantity. That is a vector can exist without anything physical or tangible supporting it or being influenced by the vector.

In general terms what are negative numbers anyway? They clearly do not represent physical quantities. They are products of our imagination, negative numbers.

Overall, I think the concept is as you approach zero, you are dealing in the realm of the physical and tangible but once you've crossed over nothing you enter into the real of concept, vectors, force.

There may well be 3 twos, but mathematically you can not go below zero. there is a mistake here, somehow.

But an IOU represents nothing tangible. its a non argument.

And if the person pays the IOU it becomes very real.

So you would accept an IOU for less than zero...?
