Multiply and Add to Divide and Subtract ~ The Mad Mathematics of Identity Politics

Andrew Thomas Huang

Multiply the grievance groupings to infinity,


separating the whole into competing parts,

differentiate by colour, gender, orientation, identification,

intersecting at useful flash points,


but never divisible to One.

The Holy Individual.

Wrong answer.


Add further outrage.

Calculate invisible offences magnified. Theoretical mathematics.

Subtract history, culture, biology, intelligence.

Keep subdividing till Zero.

Empty (Null) Set.


Andrew Thomas Huang

Subtract language.


Delete words of love, meaning, and power.


Deduct Mother, Father, Mere, Pere, Madre, Padre,

Son, Daughter, Fils, Fille, Hijo, Hija,

Sister, Brother, Souer, Frere, Hermana, Hermano,

Uncle, Auntie, Oncle, Tante, Tio, Tia.


Fracture the Matrix?


Subtract pregnant woman, factor pregnant person.

Subtract manpower, mankind, manmade,

function insult.


Divide relentlessly and subtract mercilessly

along a probability theory of offense

until Human is reducible

to an awkward unprovable theorem.

Generally just Being. Nothing in particular, no claims to fame. I like gardening and the sea, nature, art in all forms from poetry to films and everything in between, and being in the company of my family.

''I am all pervasive. I am without any attributes, and without any form. I have neither attachment to the world, nor to liberation. I have no wishes for anything because I am everything, everywhere, every time, always in equilibrium. I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.''
