Is the null set a subset of every set?

One day, I noticed that

$2+2 = 2*2 = 4$.

Later, I learned that

- Converting decimal(base 10) numbers to binary by repeatedly dividing by 2
- Don't understand casting out nines
- Rationalize $\left(\sqrt{3x+5}-\sqrt{5x+11} -\sqrt{x+9}\right)^{-1}$
- How to show that the given equation has at least one complex root ,a s.t |a|>12
- Why does an argument similiar to 0.999…=1 show 999…=-1?
- cubic root of negative numbers

$2+2 = 2*2 = 2^2 = 4$

Multiplication is an abstraction of *a lot of additions* , exponential is an abstraction of *a lot of multiplications*… I’m sure there is always an abstraction of the previous operation.

But my questions is : if I use any abstraction with the numbers $2$ and $2$ does it always result $4$ ?

I think the “deep” reason for this is that these are all *binary* operations.

Given a binary operation $\ast$ on integers at least $2$, define $\ast’$ by $$m\ast’ n = \overbrace{m\ast m\ast \cdots \ast m}^{n\text{ times}}.$$

Always associate to the right (for concreteness), so that $a\ast b\ast c = a\ast(b\ast c)$ and so on.

Now starting with any binary operation $\ast$, define $\ast_1=\ast$ and $\ast_{n+1} = \ast_n’$. Then for all $n$ we clearly have $2\ast_n 2 = 2\ast_{n-1} 2 = \cdots = 2\ast 2$.

The sequence you consider is given by taking $\ast$ to be $+$.
