On Division by Zero extension of the real numbers, a general negative prove?

    So triggered by after reading about H. J. M. Bos's differential historical account |Inspiration is a wierd thing, don't ask me why it is the case...|

    The following is observed from these 3 sets of small experiments

    |Assume we keep all axioms of the real numbers intact|

    1. Any elements that interact with zero in a way such that the product is nonzero will in general become absorbing elements in multiplication and/or addition

    2. The presence of just one multiplicative inverse that is tied |even indirectly| to the elements in point 1 will result in the collapsing of the number line that is the bogus result known as 0=1 |or in one of the cases having contradictions like u=0|

    However I just felt this prove is not strong enough to rule out all conceivable attempts in making a division by zero algebra |if we held all axioms of real numbers intact| and I am not sure how to make it stronger

    PS Someone please fix the forum issue of round brackets turning into Latex like symbols
