Numbers and Measurement System

 

The Abh use the decimal system as we do. Thus there are ten figures. Like the alphabet, they have their own figures, different from their creator's.

The Abh measurement system is based on the C.G.S. (centimeter-gram-second) unit system.

 

The unit of the time - the second - is the same as one we use. An hour, day and year are exactly 60 seconds, 24 hours and 365 days, respectively. This means their year is slightly shorter than ours.

 

Length is measured in centimeters (dagh) whereas the weight is in grams (bau).

 

Prefixes are also used, corresponding to our "kilo" or "mega". However, the prefix changes every four (rather than three) digits, as shown in the table below. This is probably due to the influence of the Japanese counting system. Thus three üethdagh is 300 meters.

For very long distance, units such as the light-year and light second are also often used and it is rare that units larger than zaisacdagh are used.

 

Obviously these are not enough for the planar universe, where different laws of physics apply. Thus two units are defined for it; cédlairh and digrh. One cédlairh is the distance, which a space-time bubble in the fully mobile state of a mass of one secbauh (one hundred tons) moves in one second of the time within the space-time bubble. One digrh is the velocity with which one can move one secbauh in one hour in the planar universe.

 

There is another unit frequently used; daimon. It is a unit for gravitation and one Daimon is half of the 1G.
