Good evening! I have been encouraged to ask my question on this forum, even though it might be perceived as a pure subjective and open-ended question, but I am 100% sure there is a perfectly acceptable solution to my equation.
I am a tango dancer, having been doing this for 5 years. Recently I have been asking myself if there would be a way to quantify this transcendental dance, in order to explain in a simple, yet elegant way why a few dances seem to offer a pure bliss, meditative-like 0 state.
I can offer a few constants which are common to all dancers:
- The level of interest of the lead: IL
- The level of interest of the follower: IF
- The effect music has on the lead: M1
- The effect music has on the follower: M2
- Dance chemistry (dancing in sync, anticipation, beautifully executed moves, posture etc): c
Since I wanted to keep this simple and elegant, following the Yin and Yang principle, I decided to make the formula in the following way:
((IL * M1) + (IF * M2)) / 2 - c = 0. If both dancers enjoy the music and completely surrender themselves to each other, the result of the nominator is 2, therefore 1 - c = 0. If the chemistry is also perfect, then we have a perfect dance (dancers call it "tangasm").
However, there are a few problems with this. If there is no chemistry and none of the partners actually enjoy the music or dancing with each other, we might have a situation such as 0 - 0 = 0. This does not mean bliss, this is a complete waste of time.
Can you please suggest me a way to force the nominator to be different than 0 no matter what happens? And even so, we might still be in the weird situation of having a mediocre interest and chemistry, say 0.35, yet having 0.35 - 0.3 = 0 .05, which is close to a perfect experience, but in fact it's awkward.
Please forgive my limited vocabulary and math knowledge, I have not taken a math class in more than 7 years, but I hope someone might see the fun in such a question and provide an alteration or maybe turn it into a limit problem or inequality. I also hope the question does not violate the rules of the forum.
