New Theory to Divide by Zero – is it a hoax?

Dr James Anderson, from the University of Reading's computer science department, says he has found a theorem to solve the problem of nothing. And the new number is called nullity. BBC Reports:Dr Anderson has come up with a theory that proposes a new number - 'nullity' - which sits outside the conventional number line (stretching from negative infinity, through zero, to positive infinity).BBC also has a video of the story. Well, Anderson gave this explanation to a group of school children. Most elders have called it a hoax.By the way - the concept of zero originated in ancient India and is derived from the Hindu concept of a void.
