A Brief Mathematics of Intimacy

Methinks the best intimate relationships are those in which one can be alone (all-one?)—together.

Not in diminution through mutual sacrificial subtractions, yea, surely not solely for multiplicative reproduction wherein 1 x 1 is somehow > 1, indeed ≥ 3.

Not where two are against the world, but where it is sufficient that two are alONE, TWOgether.

Not 1 and 1, which is 2—or one, as mathematical language permits—but one, one.
