Think of it like this…

28 Jul

Not to be cliche, but, On paper, [1+1]=[2]. Open and closed case. No questions. Good.

Same Problem in life… Jimmy has one apple, and Johnny has one apple. How many apples do they both have together? This is starkly different for many reasons. I mean, ultimately, It depends. If your are a quantity based person then you may ask, where did they get the apples? Which apple weighs more? Which apple grew up in a well watered orchard? What was the weather like when they were grown? Was the soil nutrient rich?

Or perhaps you are a financially minded person. Then you would wonder, well who is Jimmy? Does he owe anybody else apples? Does he have more apples than Johnny? Does Johnny have kids that he has to share the apple with, and how many kids? How is the apple economy doing this year? Are the apples worth as much today as they may be worth tomorrow? Do either Johnny or Jimmy have an apple tree?

The social worker of the bunch would wonder if either of them really needed the apple? Has Johnny just gotten done eating 3 apples already? Would it be more beneficial to not count the apples together and decide on an individual basis what to do with the apples? Should they consider splitting the apples to better suit the hours of work that consume their day, so the body could better utilize the energy utilized by the body?

And the philosopher would throw the whole question on its side. Since time is infinite and knows no beginning, nor end, the apples exist in a moment that is becomeing smaller and smaller, and are infinitely small and thus they do not exist.

So I’ll ask again… Jimmy has one apple, and Johnny has one apple. How many apples do they both have together?

life. its a tricky bitch.

    Ah… indeed, simplification is simplified, is simple is easy is ABC is abc is atu is (p+)+(n)… Simple as quantum physics;). Another of my friends said, “I answer your apple question just as I do the fake breast question: If I can touch them, they’re real.”

    Then again are the apples chemically modified?
