Can’t we settle this amicably? Oatmeal without syrup, sliced bananas and almonds is a breakfast worth boycotting. Without all those ingredients, it doesn’t work.
Likewise, too few or too many chromosomes in each cell of our bodies is not good math. Forty-six is the limit per cell, thank you. And what’s a molecule of water without both hydrogen atoms? Or when energy matters, what good is E=MC without squaring the C? You can’t have a yin without its yang, they say.
Would the same algorithm be true of us? Did you earn your way into this world, or was it simply a present for which you did nothing but show up? Can there be a gift without a Giver?
Are you on speaking terms with the Giver of your next breath? Or should we send out an APB?
