One plus one does not equal two.  It approaches two as an upper or lower limit.

So then if you remove 1 from2 does it not equal 1?

The kid seems to be making the best of her cast.

1 equals 1 as an upper or lower limit. Look at any one thing, then at another identical one thing. They will not be identical. One will be more or less than the other, even if only by one atom. So "one" itself is a theoretical concept. Handy as a concept, but not as reality.

The only way 1 plus 1 can equal 2 is if the exact same item is added to itself, and that is also a theoretical concept, impossible in reality.


Nugget has been trying to walk with the cast, but she says it hurts. I'm hoping that it's the cast cutting against the back of her thigh, not the broken bone that hurts.

(By theoretical, I mean like an electron plus an electron, and even there it's theoretical.)
