number theory

Why must we always be subdued into believing the notion that people must be compared to each other? Why must people be pitted against each other for no other reason than, really, to see how the dice of mere chanced fate were cast? And yet the problem with society isn’t that we’re playing the numbers game––it’s that we’re playing it wrong. People aren’t numbers. Students at progressive schools and others in liberal communities hear this time and time again, but if the fact does not pervade society, it cannot permeate minds. The fact that people can be assigned numbers is in some ways undeniably useful and, sure, may suggest how well one performs in school, competes in track and field, takes tests, eats pies, works out, does math, or wastes money. And numbers may not define people but they sure can represent extremely important topics––years spent, lives lost, coins collected, and care packages distributed all contribute to a fuller narrative. But it’s the ranking and attachment of numbers to self- and social-identification that cross the line. The only way peoples’ numbers should function in relation to each other is to complement each other, allowing for the complete integration of every term in contribution toward a more accepting and uplifting expression. Only from this can we derive the equation that the sum of any and all of the world’s numbers are equal to one.
