My friend posted in her tumblr site, that 'Love has its X's and Y's'.
The post connects love to some stuff we learn from school. Yes, a typical and practical (?) application of these concepts to our lives (specifically, the love life)
She said that Love is like geometric lines in mathematics...
Parallel Lines - Two lines on a plane that never meet. They are always the same distance apartWell, some lovers, are parallel lines... They wont meet. Ever. Sad story. Parallel lines are similar to being FRIENDZONED scenario.
Perpendicular Lines - Lines that are at right angles (90°) to each other.Meaning, they would meet once. But once parted, they wont meet. Ever. Another sad story. Perpendicular lines are similar to NOT MEANT TO BE scenario.
Asymptotic lines - Lines that approaches a curve but never touches.My friend said, its a MORE THAN FRIENDS, BUT LESS THAN LOVERS scenario. The saddest of the three.
Love is also like the Butterfly Effect in Chaos Theory
In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependency on initial conditions in which a small change at one place in a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.Putting it in a not-so-deep-perspective... in a relationship, one, small, wrong move can result in chaos later.
So, I had my own share of thoughts in math... I love 'Watt's Curve'. I think I saw the illustration on one post in G+ and it became my instant favorite.
In mathematics, Watt's curve is a tricircular plane algebraic curve of degree six. It is generated by two circles of radius b with centers distance 2a apart (taken to be at (±a, 0). A line segment of length 2c attaches to a point on each of the circles, and the midpoint of the line segment traces out the Watt curve as the circles rotate.Reading its definition won't give you the connection of watt's curve in love. So let's just look at the illustration:
|Watt's Curve. Err yeah, its watt's curve and not two buns put together.|
Where's the love in Watt's curve? Let's look at the animated illustration.
|Ooooh! Did I just see a heart-shaped smiling baboon?|
There goes a chubby heart, and a smiley. No need to explain I suppose.
Happy hearts day folks. <3
I am NOT a big fan of math. I am NOT good at math. I somehow only liked the connection.
