While counting from zero to ten on my hands (as I do when I need to kill a couple of minutes), I finally realized why it has never felt right. Iâ€™m a number short and that number is what Iâ€™m calling â€śLac.â€ť

â€śLacâ€ť is from the latin word lacuna meaning gap. Recent studies have shown that when people count on their fingers or toes a separation in the handsÂ frequentlyÂ occurs whenÂ going over five. My number lac (representedÂ as â€ś\â€ť for now) will account for separations when counting.

SoÂ counting on twoÂ handsÂ allows you to go â€ś0-1-2-3-4-5-\-6-7-8-9-10!â€ťGive it a try. Doesnâ€™t that feel better?! Now that you have lac you canÂ count to 10 starting from \ and it mirrors counting from 0 to 5 due to the symmetrical nature of where that second occurrence of nothing is placed. Now accounted for by \.

When nothing appears within something we need a way to express that additional void. Well World, I (Wobbles the Mind) gift to you that number so you can completely account for all values!
