The Australian leading erotic poet philosopher colin leslie dean points out
1+1=1

2)The Australian leading erotic poet philosopher colin leslie dean points out 1+1=1

get a salt shaker
pour out one heap of salt on the left
pour out one heap of salt on the right

NOTE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HEAPS
now push the 2 heaps together ie we add them together
now what have we
we have one heap of salt in the middle
thus
1+1= 1
meaninglessness-

again
1 number + 1 number = 1 number

now
ADDITION IE + MEANS TO PUT TOGETHER IE MORPHED
Thus + means being morphed

There is no problem with saying 1kg + [morphed]1kg ie morphed together=2kg
So the same applies to heaps/books/apples/cars etc
ie
but also 1 book + [morphed]1 book ie morphed together =1 book

similarly 1 car + [morphed] 1 car = 1 car

1 number + 1 number = 1 number
