An Ultimatum with a Tryst: On the Recurrent Shortcomings of an Asymptotic RelationshipShe likes to stopwatch the sunset brilliant burnt purple and orange, and 3.858 seconds late. She says it’s not that complicated either. As day’s glow fades the dark sea and navy sky are welded together while sand slips through the grip of anyone trying to grasp it, grain by grain driftwood draws a natural logarithmic function^{1}— lines in the sand— and I sense an imminent analogy as she solves our lives with Limits. My attention lies with the torrent of waves rushing at my feet, shy, and receding into the trough on the next breaching swell of waves rushing at my feet, etc. Through her eyes: waves are sinusoidal circles are products of 2πr (i.e. diametric) we are binary. Her Theorem:^{2} If: y = L And: f(x) = ln(x)+m Then: f(x) ≠ L if the LIMx→∞ of f(x) exists for any y ≤ L She says it’s not that complicated either^{3} you can, or, you can’t. Now the moon is fastened overhead, its gravity impending high tide’s arrival which she calculates^{4} and suggests we move soon while the surf tickles my toes, wiping these sands anew until the sun rises again Figure 1.1
