The odds! I think. I couldn’t repeat this if I tried.
But a mathematical equation is buried here. Being pushed to the edge—no further—is always a possibility, then. As with anything else, asking the right questions first is everything. For equations without formulas—discoveries without intent—are merely unremarkable accidents. Incidents, minus context.
I’ll never again arrive at this teetering-grain result, most likely. Tomorrow, I’ll have moved on.
