I wish you had been my math teacher in high school.

I'm terrible at math, but I enjoyed reading all of these equations! It's also just nice to see your name pop up in my blogs to visit! I've missed you here.

wow... great work! have always loved math and seen it as a version of life...

1/0
on/off
good/evil
awareness/unawareness
now you have infinite possibilities to build a world...

Speaking of math, the cosmos has no use for it. Just the monkeys use it to try to make sense of all that is.

But not all things can be proved with math, like spirit.

All these equasions seem to equal ego. Now for a set that encompasses reality? But, what is that?
Thought provoking your math is.

"because if it isn't Ok

The formula of hope built on the logic of tears...

'greed to the power of power is insanity

then i thought i should thank you again...
:)
BTW, you are missed...

be well and thriving...

These are wonderful! It's easy to see though, how some folks come up with different equations. If they fail math, do they fail life?

My favorite is "happiness divided by regret is ignorance squared."
Well, one of my favorites.

Thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed your visit.
