The Mathematics Of The Mating Game ... As Questioned By JB

________________________________________________________________________________________________

To what extent might human relationships
be expressed in a mathematical
or logical formula...
What signs might be placed
between the integers?

Plus and minus, self-evidently;
sometimes multiplication
and yes: division.

But these signs are limited.
Thus an entirely failed relationship
might be expressed in loss/minus
and division/reduction,
showing a total zero.

Whereas, an entirely successful one
can be represented by both
addition and multiplication.

But what of most relationships?

Do they not require to be expressed
in notations which are logically insoluble?
