## equations and a holy number

In an attempt to not be dumb and lazy, I’ve been brushing up on equations. I think it’s important that I can verify all my words with random numbers and letters. Let’s explore some tricky sinful and illegal situations with serious logical thinking (and some equations where the correct answer is 10, a holy number).

**Euthanasia** (e)

This is clearly a sin (X). Murder(m) is a sin. Suicide(s) is a sin. So, I think I’m correct in expressing that as: 2X = m + s. It must be a double sin.

However, if I turn to some real life scenarios, I can deduce that keeping people alive with a mixture of drugs and machines against their will is ‘cruel’ (c). I’m also given to understand that if there is no cure for something and someone is in terrible agony and going to die, allowing their pain to linger is c. I think that c is an X actually. So …

X = m+s / 2 X = c therefore c = m+s/2

**Consensual sibling incest** (i)

Yikes! Apparently we’re evolutionarily predisposed to not be sexually interested in our siblings, as it’s not conducive to healthy breeding patterns, hence the general distaste for this subject. However, on the rare occasion that siblings or half siblings separated in their youth are reunited and are unfortunate enough to have those ‘falling in love’ chemicals racing through their bodies, it’s still a sin (X). i = X. So, I guess that means that anyone with a highish chance of having a baby that’s not completely ‘normal’ is committing a sin if they give it a go. Let’s think – women over the age of 35, people with a family history of genetic disorders, that sort of thing. Ah, wait, I forgot. When something is a ‘sin’ it doesn’t need a reason, and in fact only relates to the specifically targeted ‘sinners’. So, the incestuous weirdos are still heading for hell, and everyone else can breed away to their heart’s content.

Equation update: i = c x (m+s/2)

**Slavery **(v)

Buying, selling and owning other people, forcing them to work against their will is completely immoral and outlawed in most societies. It’s also a sin. What? Are you sure? Apologies. I’ve been reliably informed it’s not actually a sin and in fact there are some handy guidelines available in the Bible, for those who wish to go about it. So, in relation to my clever pants equation, that would be expressed:

-v = (c x (m+s/2))/i

**Conclusion**

After due consideration of the words, numbers and representative letters, it seems clear that:

X = (c x (m+s/2))/i) + v

Obviously, in addition to this, our shared knowledge that the correct answer is 10 has serious consequences for our understanding of sin and the human race. I’ll endeavour to keep you updated.

I have to say, I wasn’t expecting any replies to this. I peed myself laughing writing it but was quite sure the humour in head would translate to no-one! Anyway, I’m sure my equations made sense up to a certain point? I used to love Maths!

This is interesting to me. I think it’s art. I came up with this rambling a few months ago …

power=action/time

action/time=will^2(resistance)

action/time=influence^2/resistance

action/time = will(influence)

freedom> power

And concluded that …

Freedom is greater than or equal to …

The rate at which you act in proportion to resistance multiplied by your will multiplied by itself, in proportion to influence multiplied by itself and divided by resistance or your will multiplied by influence.

i meant “greater than” only … I don’t know why I wrote “or equal to” … that wouldn’t make sense at all!!!

Phew! Glad you cleared that up. That’s a beautiful piece of work you’ve got there, although I’m rather jealous of the little symbol I don’t know the name of and the use of ‘resistance’.

Would you agree then that X = (c x (m+s/2))/i) + v, but only where power is greater than influence^2/resistance? I wonder if we could get some funding to do a joint research paper on this ….

I actually think it would make an interesting painting. Just the “equations” on it …

Math is not my strongest subject; and I got a few answers wrong. Nevertheless interestin and thought provoking post.
