When 1 + 1 = 3 … Synergic thoughts…..

Filed under: Musings,Top Draws — Santhosh @ 3:16 AM

This isn’t an absolutely original post I should admit. But reading some similar thoughts on a friend’s journal has forced me to write about it.

To start with, lets take love. Love to me, isn’t about the individual parts. It is really about the entirety of the whole thing. The complete package, rather than the sum of the individual elements. Confusing you say? Well, it is. Here’s the deal. Let’s say there’s this person X you like. Now X may be good looking, smart, funny, nerdy whatever. But why you really like X would not be for each of these reasons, nor would it be for the sum of them all. There’s just that something more than the sum of the individual little bits that make this one just so adorable and special. Just that something that this one is love, while the rest are friends or special friends or whatever else they are. I mean, hell yeah, you will have tons of friends who meet the so called cut for the good looking + smart + nerdy + funny + rich + all the typical requirements combination. But to have that something that makes it beyond this sum total, only X does.

Similarly for experiences, sometimes everything seems to be right, yet you don’t come out feeling great. Just that extra something missing to make it from an “all right” individual elements sum to that perfect great experience you’ve always wanted!

Forgive me for rambling, but these were just some vague thoughts passing by my cluttered head tonight!
