Orwell had to think how to come up with a wrong answer to 2 + 2 = ?
But if 2 + 2, the two 2's relate to 1984, the same number should relate to the wrong answer. So Orwell used this option:
1 + 9 + 8 + 4 = 22
1 x 9 - 8 + 4 = 5
Here is the 5 that relates to 22 as 5 = 2 + 2.
Look up what happened on 5/22/1984 and you will understand the true meaning of "prophecy."

We know that there are 4 elements but we dont know if it will be a group of elements or just a single element on the right side of equality.

Whether it's divided into groups or combined into one the amount is always the same. Numbers if you didn't realize represent amounts. 2+2 will always equal 4 and only 4. There is no possible way that 2+2=1, the amount of 2 added to another amount of the same kind will produce a total amount of 4. 2 buckets of water and another 2 buckets of water produce 4 buckets of water with no extra or missing water molecules. The bucket is equal to the amount of 1, a tub with four buckets of water poured into it then, would equal the amount of 4 not 1, because the amount is measured in buckets in this equation. And I repeat, 2+2 does not ever =anything but 4.

2 rocks + 2 rocks = 4 separate rocks
Big difference here in what you will see on the right side of equality (=).
Do you see it now?
