# WokeMath

Woke-Math respects flexible bundle-numbers for a total instead of colonizing it by forcing a linear number upon it.

So, Woke-Math wants to decolonize by warning that imposing line-numbers without units as five upon a total of fingers will disrespect the fact that the actual total may exist in different forms, all with units: as 5 1s, as 1 5s, as 1Bundle3 2s, as 2Bundle1 2s, as 3Bundle-1 2s, etc.

Woke-Math builds on a basic observation asking a 3year old “How many years next time?” The answer typically is four showing four fingers. Holding them together 2 by 2, that child objects “That is not 4, that is 2 2s.”

The child thus sees what exist in space and time, bundles of 2s in space, and 2 of them in time when counted. So, what exist are totals to be counted and added in time and space, as T = 2 2s.

Woke-Math builds on the philosophy called existentialism holding that existence precedes essence to prevent the latter from colonizing the former, i.e., that what exists outside precedes what we say about it inside.

By de-modeling mathematics instead of modeling reality, Woke-Math offers “Master Many to master Math” as a decolonized alternative to the traditional approach, “Master Math to master Many”.

Woke-Math respects, that outside totals inside may be counted and recounted in various two-dimensional bundle-numbers with units; and rejects one-dimensional line-numbers without units since they lead to ‘mathematism’ true inside, but seldom outside, where 2+3 = 5 is falsified by 2weeks + 3days = 17 days.
