Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic...
Why do you read? Because someone told you you must? To be able to read the instructions for your new remote control? To be able to read the street signs and directions for getting from one point to another on the map...? For being able to understand a recipe for baking a Black Forrest Cake?
But, if you can purchase that cake in a wonderful gourmet bakery near where you live within walking distance so that you don't have to read the street signs as you drive around the block...
Why do you write? To communicate ideas to someone else? But, if you have a mouth for speaking and they have ears for listening, why write? Because they may not be within listening distance?
That's what telephones are for, as long as you have the money for paying the telephone bills.
You've gotta be kidding!
1+1= 2 you say. But sometimes what we think is a 1 + 1 may actually be an 11 and maybe what we think is 1+1 amounts to 2 actually amounts to 3, 4, 5 or 6... and maybe the problem continues amounting even they you thought there was a period after 1 + 1... or maybe who wrote the equation didn't notice that one of the 1s actually had some residue attached to it and it is actually, 1.0000000001000090003; added to 1 continuously throughout a childhood and into adulthood leads to non-whole unexplainable numbers to those who didn't see the residue with their naked eye.
What did the adults say about those #s after Beth was sexually abused repeatedly throughout early childhood, adolescence and into adulthood? They didn't say anything because they only saw 1 + 1 and nothing else.
Can sexual abuse, child abuse, neglect or PTSD cause changes in gene expression?
No, if the person doesn't want to read, write or do the arithmetic. If the scientists don't understand cross-studying or multi-disciplinary studies that offer additional options for more accurate math...
