NOT doing something isn't an operation.

"NOP" is a useful function in programming the earlier HP calculators.

NOP= No operation

Perhaps.  IMO, it is interesting that for any statement P, P=~  (~ P).  For any set S, S=(S^c)^c where c denotes taking the complement of a given set.  Or, for any nxm matrix A, A=(A^T)^T where T denotes taking the transpose of  a particular nxm matrix.  Thus, in each instance, using the same unary operator twice resulted in the outcome of doing nothing to the original mathematical statement or item.

But it is an operation simply because the operator is applied...it's just that the operation does nothing..

No, the operator was expressly NOT applied:

That's your error - saying clearly that you're not applying the operator, but then doing so anyway.

Totally.
