Maybe this will help:
Allow each cell to have a spiritual nature (x) and a physical nature(y) and the sum of these natures is a nature with 0 awareness.
If we postilate that the spiritual nature is always aware, this gives x = 1.
if y + x = 0 where x = 1 then y = -1
1 + -1 = 0
With me so far?
(Math refresher)
So, in a finite set we would have:
1 + -1 + 1 + -1 + 1 + -1 + 1 + -1 = 0
Adding or moving the parenthesis in an addition problem does not change the answer.
(1 + -1) + (1 + -1) + (1 + -1) + (1 + -1) = 0
1 + (-1 + 1) + (-1 + 1) + (-1 + 1) + -1 = 0
Now back to find the problem at hand:
Find the sum of the infinite series:
1, -1, 1, -1, 1, -1 ....
Now suppose we position parenthesis like this:
(1 + -1) + (1 + -1) + (1 + -1) + (1 + -1) ....
or 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 ....
Obviously the sum will be 0.
But now supposed we change the position of the parenthesis like so:
1 + (-1 + 1) + (-1 + 1) + (-1 + 1) ....
or 1 + 0 + 0 + 0 ....
Obviously the sum will be 1.
Enjoy!

Just like music: individually, 'notes' are just single-frequency vibrations... but collectively, they transcend the laws of physics and become music.

seperating the truth from the truth. is it a necessity?
if the first one could be defined as the "truth" plus an endless abundance of calculations that equal zero, then we the zeros will never find the source by looking outward.
we must find the source of consciousness inward.

If I count from 0 to 1 in some infinite series, I will never say 1.
Example one: count from 0 to 1 using the smallest decimal possible.
Example two: "Count by halving" from 0 to 1. (1/2 , 3/4 , 7/8 , 15/16 ...)
