Yep. It doesn't matter how it makes you feel, but if it's something that can contribute to the literature, submit a high quality paper to a journal and cross your fingers

You should read the existing literature on those to make sure that you're rediscovering something that someone has already proposed.

No. I have heard no evidence that counting predated the hominid species, although it almost certainly was first developed in its most primitive forms before humans.

the second system is binary system.. this is also a universal system. When combined with the right primer you have a working system along with numbers that is pretty universal I don't think any of you can find the primer that makes this a library. Math derived from the foundation of math. Not by pure luck or imagination. Would you say that off and on predate the human civilization>?

I don't know whether you are making things up or using a jargon that I'm not familiar with. It carries a strong whiff of pseudoscientific mumbojumbo. But no, I wouldn't say that there is evidence that mathematics is "universal" in any particularly nontrivial way. I certainly wouldn't say it predates any hominid community. Our mathematical system approximately mirrors the universe because it was designed to do just that. Your system is no older than when somebody first thought of it, so it's certainly not older than civilisation.

I am trying to point out that there is a system that uses 2 mathematical languages to teach you math
