Usually on an otherwise fairly unremarkable day, two people, who probably hadn’t crossed paths too long ago, decide to mesh their bodies in conjunction. Between the two of them, their total personhood sum to exactly two, not more, not less. Yet somehow, the act of aggravated unison will cause one of their flesh to congeal and begin to delimit that sum to the right. Very soon, it equals three, and in the short period between conceivement and childbirth, the two collaborators find that they have very little time for estimating and preparing to support the load of another personhood: with (if everything goes right) five senses, four limbs, and a mind of its own. It is like two straight lines running alongside each other, and if they are slightly askew, they’ll meet at some point in space. As in a triangle, their projection will create a third line segment, fulfilling the purpose of the two lines’ intersection. A universal outcome, nothing fancy. With minimal diligence, it is even possible to predict the formation of the final line using Pythagorean mathematics. No surprises here either. However, representing human nature by anything close to straight lines has so far been difficult for even the extremities of scientific knowledge, the chaos being virtually irreducible. Thus, the third line, being born out of the transgressions of two irregular lines, assumes an equally chaotic and unpredictable shape.
