Theorem peano1

Description: Zero is a natural number. One of Peano's five postulates for arithmetic. Proposition 7.30(1) of TakeutiZaring p. 42. Note: Unlike most textbooks, our proofs of peano1 through peano5 do not use the Axiom of Infinity. Unlike Takeuti and Zaring, they also do not use the Axiom of Regularity.
