One Plus One

One plus one...
We call it two.
But this has no bearing on reality or truth.
Man is not the center of the universe, nor of any importance.
The universe would continue to exist without Man,
And better off I presume.
Analyze and categorize, that is all Man knows.
It seems without purpose to want to know more and more.
Why accumulate so much data?
It is so unnecessary when already we know that the sun gives us
warmth, and water quenches our thirst.
What more is there to know?
