Do you know the answer that 1 and 1 equals?Of course 2 is the first answer come into your mind.You can say that without hesitation.That's exactly true in mathematics.But in life,it depends. Sometimes that's more than 2.For example,you have an idea and your friend has another idea.Then you two cooperate with each other and exchange your ideas.It becomes both of you have two ideas. If you gave someone a favor when he/she was in difficult,and he/she helped you in return some ohter time,what does that a favor and a favor mean?It means you could become friends then.So in that case,1 and 1 is more than 2. On the other hand,it's less than 2 sometimes.Do you think so?What's your opinion of that?

If 1 + 1 is a man and a woman in love and wanting children, the answer can definately be more than 2. It can be 3 if they have a child, 4 if they have twins. I think only in straight mathmatics 1 + 1 = 2, but I think life is too fluid and moving to stay tacked down to straight mathmatics.

I believe that in all situations 1+1=2. It doesn't matter if it is math or real life. In your example of the ideas, you would still personally only have two ideas. Math is the balance of the world. It seems that everything that we do somehowvinvolves math.

It is a funny topic you have started .But if we don't make deep thinking ,simple conclusions may come out .All of us know of course some times when we cooperate with others ,1+12;when we quarral don't cooperate with others ,1+12,we should first of all be sincere enough to others ,and share our thoughts and happiness subjectively.
