The Pumpkin: Thanksgiving Mathematics Day 29


In this blog i am looking at the value i assign vegetables (pumpkins) and humans based from the common sense that we are all  here living this one Life

I see the pumpkin's body as equal to my body as equal to the body of nature etc., in/as substance

So, let's represent that with this statement

(Vegetables) Pumpkin's Body = Life

I am a human, and i see my body/physical as equal to the body of the pumpkin, as equal to the body of nature etc., in/as substance 

It has a value equal to Life

(Humans)  My Body  = Life

Since we are all parts of life, it is common sense to stand for what is best for all Life

Human Body = (pumpkin's) Plant's Body = Animal's Body = Body of Nature = Life

This is a number line 

Let's say 0 represents the physical value of 
pumpkins and humans

                                 0  - Body of Pumpkin


                                 0  - Body of Humans


Let's look at the value i give a pumpkin during Thanksgiving:

The value i give a pumpkin during  Thanksgiving is 'more than' it's real value

I connected it to 'something that will give me happiness' 

Let's look at the things that i connected to Thanksgiving that 'gives me happiness'
1. Eating tasty food (depends on what food)
2. People/Family/Friends gather
3. Relaxing/Not working

Pumpkins are 'not just a vegetable' to me during Thanksgiving.

It 'becomes something else - that has a value greater than' it's physical/substance value

So, from

Pumpkin's body  = Life

The Mind value increased because of the perceived 

'desire for happiness' being fulfilled through food, family and relaxation

Let's have a look:

Pumpkin = Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving = Food 

which from a scale of 0 to10 i will give

Food, a value of +8

Food  = +8

                                             0   +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8

as i value being able to eat tasty food that much

Thanksgiving = Family

= Family = +7
                                        0  +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7

as i value being able to exchange laughter with family and friends during Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving = Relaxing

= Relaxing = +10

                                                                 0 +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9 +10

as i value being able to relax on holidays because i do not have to work

Here, it is clear that 

my mind gives the pumpkin more value during Thanksgiving

 changing its value from 0 to something more than its real physical value
( +7, +8 , and +10) 

But this is a value i gave it within my mind

This is not the real value of a pumpkin

This is the mind concept of the value of the pumpkin

The Real value of the body/physical of the pumpkin = Life

This is me inflating the value of the pumpkin which is not real

This is me as the mind as who i have become

'not who i am' as the body/physical

equal to the body of the pumpkin, the body of nature, the body of animals -as all life

I will write self-forgiveness statements in the next blog for creating a mental concept of the pumpkin within/as my mind
