EDIT:
I still prefer "a point is a location on a line." Something has to be axiomatic, and the line seems best qualified. You can't go anywhere with a point (nothing). Nothing Set Topology.
Last minute edit which I believe is essential which you may have missed.

It will, because you can't create geometry from a "0-dimensional," Wolfram, point which disproves Banach-Tarski which reduces the earnings of mathematicians which reduces the demand for groceries which brings down the price.

Not that I care that much, but what are you going to call something that fills precisely one location in your geometry?

From Point to Geometry

The point is a place-holder which can be filled in (expanded), or not.
( ) $\displaystyle \rightarrow$ (x1,( )) $\displaystyle \rightarrow$ (x1,x2,( )) $\displaystyle \rightarrow$ (x1,x2,x3,( )) $\displaystyle \rightarrow$ (x1,x2...xn,( )}

( ) is an expandable point. In (x1,( )) it is any point {expandable} on the line (x1)

This differs from the notion of geometry as n-tuples. Where do the n-tuples start from: an expandable place holder (point).
Thanks to Denis for guiding me in this direction. I always liked Canadian culture. It has even set the tone to smooth out v8archie.

I don't know what that means, but you are definitely talking out of your backside mathematically.
