The Lemon Question

Let's think of adding lemons for a moment, shall we?

How could one have two lemons, adding those two to another two, and have a sum total of seven?

Is this possible? Sounds like a play on words, right? I did in fact write the word “two” three times and “one” once, making for a possible sum total of seven lemons. What is the context actually saying? Simply adding 2 lemons to 2 other lemons. Reading it another way, another possible contextual understanding would speak to six lemons in total. Read the lemon question again.

If the above lemon question could have three possible answers, depending on the reader's comprehension, imagine how easy it would be to derive many meanings from things unseen?

Up until recently, science has realized ( and somehow determined ) that more mass and energy is present in 'dark' matter ( the unseen / dark portions of space ) than exists in the visible things, like stars and planets. Sounds paradoxical, but science somehow is putting this paradox into words which makes the subject matter somewhat understandable.

The same lemon question confusion happens with the religions of men. To one who looks at all religions, a semblance and agreement can be identified. To others, nothing but contradiction and confusion. I personally can see the unifying qualities while acknowledging the obvious differences. But, if religions attempt to explain the unexplainable, how can the unexplainable be explained? This is why I call science a religion too. Just because words with definitions exist doesn't mean men understand what they are not looking at ( dark matter ).

Consider how the word 'love' is misused and misunderstood. One taught to “love your enemy.” Some who claim to believe the Author still cannot see past their hate of their supposed enemy.
