Homology: Why Boundary of Boundary = 0 ?

Math Online Tom Circle

This equation puzzles most people. WHY ?
$latex boxed {{delta}^2 = 0 { ?}}&fg=aa0000&s=3 $

It is analogous to the Vector Algebra:
Let the boundary of {A, B} =
$latex delta (A,B) = overrightarrow{AB }$

$latex overrightarrow{AB } + overrightarrow {BA} =overrightarrow{AB } – overrightarrow {AB} = vec 0 $
