Quandary Resolution 5411
pi, inception, abecedarian, inchoation
In the cloudy, inchoate beginning, before the inception of numbers, men struggled with crude concepts of "more" and "less" until one special day in the distant past somewhere on the African veldt one of our hominid ancestors hesitated, then made a single scratch on a stone for one zebra, two scratches for two zebras, and three scratches for three zebras, and from that abecedarian but brilliant beginning mankind eventually developed a magnificent number system reaching out from the positive counting numbers to transcendental numbers like e and Pi, and beyond to the Alephs, uncountable infinities.
