In math, in order to solve a problem you have to get all the other variables and components of the problem on the other side of the equal sign. So that everything in the problem equals the solution to what you don’t know.
A + B = X
If you have only one unknown, then you can find the exact answer to solve the problem.
A + 3 = 5 then A = 5 – 3; A = 2
4 + B = 17 then B = 17 – 4; B = 13
If you have more than one unknown variable then you cannot find an exact answer to the problem because you do not know if A or B is greater than, less than, or equal to each other. You can come up with a solution that fits into a range, but you do not know if that range will truly satisfy the problem. At most, it’s a guestimate. An answer that may work for some and not for others.
A + B = 6 then A = 6 – B where B is greater than, less than, or equal to A.
A + B = 6 then B = 6 – A where A is greater than, less than, or equal to B.
When we realize that we are ALL human beings, then we can solve for X (the problem), whatever that X may be in our lives and world. Everything that makes us individuals can then be factored into the equation.
Humans + Humans = X
Humans (gender) + Humans (race) + Humans/religion + Humans/politics + Humans/ lifestyle + Humans (age) = X
In recognizing each other as human beings, we hold the solution to our problems.
