A story for two

Let’s assume that on the other side of the wall stands a woman with whom you are about to fall in love. Let’s assume that on the other side of the wall stands a man with whom you are about to fall in love. Let’s leave out for a moment the probability of a piano passing through a wall, because it’s not the constant of love that we are trying to discover here, nor the two identical fingerprints, nor the two identical snowflakes, and not even the two cranes who were scheduled on the same morning on the same street to lift two pianos to two different apartments in the same building and so on—now, let’s assume that there is no wall.
