Does 2 + 2 Really Equal 4?
I'm sure most of you would say yes, but that's because you were conditioned to think this way.

Contrary to what you have been taught, 2 + 2 does in-fact add up to 4, but it doesn't actually equal 4.

If you can take a moment and perhaps a few brain cells, you will note that only 2 + 2 equals 2 + 2.

1 + 3 = 4, 0 + 4 = 4, 1.5 + 2.5 also add up to 4, however 1 + 3 does not equal 1.5 + 2.5.

Now, think outside the box and use this knowledge to better yourself and the World.

Get it? Got it? Good!

Ahhh, but you have overlooked the obvious grasshopper.

(2 + 2) 2 quarters + 2 dimes = 60 cents.

and

(1 + 3) 1 dollar + 3 nickles = \$1.15

Therefore, we can conclude that:

2 + 2 does not equal 1 + 3

Re: Does 2 + 2 Really Equal 4?
Three men go on a business trip together. At the end of the day, they stop at a hotel to get some rest. The room costs \$30, so each man gives a \$10 bill to the desk clerk. When the clerk takes the money to the manager, he is told there's been a mistake.

The room only costs \$25, and gives the clerk a \$5 bill. The clerk, knowing he can't split a \$5 bill 3 ways, exchanges it for 5, \$1 bills.He then decides to give each of the business men \$1, and pocket the other \$2. When he explains the situation to the three men, they disagree because there is a dollar missing.

One of the business men explains; "If we each initially paid \$10, then recieved a \$1 refund, effectively paying \$9 each, then there should be \$3 left because (3x9)+2 does not equal 30. The clerk argues that because 25+3+2=30, there's no missing dollar.

Who is right, and is there a missing dollar?

"Technically".. if your using "accounting practices, 2+2 indeed = 4..

However that said, in pure theoretical mathematics, 2+2 "does not" equal "just 4"..

In Quantified Infinity (QI), 2(I+/-) +(I=/-) 2(I+/-) =(I+/-) 4(+/-) over Infinity (I)..

In basics of it, it is A plus D whereas D = distance divided by Infinity over B = C..

So in Final. The Answer is both "Yes AND No" simultaneously (just depends on who your asking as pertaining to what field that are related to as a job description)

QI. the next generation in enabling technologies.. live, breath it, or get the hell out of the way and retire.. because it is coming..

OP is right 2+2 does not just equal 4, it is also equal to "infinities", and the complex sequential, and non-sequential events within each quantum index applied...
