Maybe we can influence serendipity. Just what are the odds that we’ll find that special person who we can trust for eternity? Turns out that mathematics has a lot to teach us about the possibilities. Take a look at this fun circle of thought…

Nice! Good to know! The person for each of us is out there, mathematically!

Fabulous, huh? We love the sentiments Amy puts forward about being yourself and her strategy for improving the chances of meeting someone who is doing the same. Lovely!

Next up: The Mathematics of Love by Hannah Fry. This one’s another funny speaker who decided to blend pure logic and common-sense with some mathematics. Brilliant work! She too has some great ingredients for improving upon serendipity. Enjoy…

Love it!

There are so many ways to look at this subject.

We hope that we’ve opened up some new windows and doors for you! That’s our goal every day at Ever Widening Circles.

Have a great day!

Stay open, curious and hopeful
