Yes! The title may surprise you at first but I’m talking about **curves** generally (not about that specific one you are thinking!). A curve can be understood in many different ways by different **perspectives**. Let us discuss these perspectives one by one:

**Perspective 1.** *Simple Observation*

A curve is a line which appears to be constantly **changing** in direction of **progression** thereby forming an enclosed or open loop which may or may not represent a **shape** which has some physical **meaning**. Anything that looks like below drawn shapes, or which doesn’t look like a straight line, or even close to it, is a curve:

**Perspective 2.** *Mathematical Observation*

A curve is a **mathematical equation** having two variables (say, **x** and **y**) that change their values more **frequently** with changing distance or time. That means the value of **(****dy****/****dx****)** keeps on changing, i.e., the value of **y** keeps on changing (*y*_{2}*-y*_{1}* = **dy**, for elementary distance *** dx**) for small intervals of distance (

**dx**). Let’s look at the example below:

In the figure above, the **curve ****ABCDEF** has different values of **(****dy****/****dx****)** at each of the points **A, B, C, D, E** and **F**. The **quicker** the values **change** with progressing curve, the **more refined** the curve will become. In case of a line, the value of **(****dy****/****dx****)** remains **constant **over the entire length of the line. **(****dy****/****dx****) **is nothing but the **slope** of the curve at a point, which comes out to be an **equation of a straight line** tangent to the curve and coincident to the curve at that point.

**Perspective 3.** *My Observation*

A **curve** is nothing but a **series of end-to-end joined line segments**. By looking at its smooth contour, one can’t notice the ‘straight’ nature of a curve but **observing carefully**, at a magnified scale, one can easily notice the straight lines which make the curve so **curvy**. Take a look at the magnified view of a simple arbitrary curve. Let’s take the example of an **arc**, for simplicity:

As you can **see**, a curve when **magnified** shows its **true identity**. A curve is actually made up of many line segments connected **end-to-end** and changing directions in the progression of the curve. This fact is very much **evident** from **mathematical perspective** as well. The differentiation of an equation of a curve gives the equation of a line, which means that a curve has **line segments** as its **components** or building blocks. So, I can say that a curve, when it’s seen from a distance, appears to be a curve, but when observed closely or magnified, is actually a **sequence of line segments** changing in direction. So, **curves are an illusion**. They never really exist. Only a tiny little **point is real**, which combines with other tiny little points or dots to form a line, and therefore a curve, a plane, an object, and a reality.

**The Single Perspective – The Unified Theory of Reality**

**Life** is a sequence of **changes**, but the changes are not **abrupt**; they take time. Think of it as the curve mentioned above with three different perspectives. **Perspective 1** says that a **curve** is anything that is **not** **straight**. That means life is **ever-changing**;**unexpectedly changing** to any possible direction and never progresses with constant phase. People with this kind of perspective **never believe** in the **immense possibilities of life**. They see life as being defined by **fate** and **destiny**. **Perspective 2 **says that a **curve** is a **pattern **which can be **predicted** by knowing the points and **values** though it can’t be changed. That means **life** is all but **mathematics and logic of **events that happened in the **past** and are likely to give same results in **future **if the events happen in the same way. There are various **techniques **by which these points can be **predicted**, one such technique being **astrology**. But it all depends on what you **believe**. Studying closely the **position of stars** and relating** **them with the **changes** in one's life is what astrology and related techniques and methodologies basically do. It may not be mathematics, but the **outcome** certainly is **logical**. People with this kind of perspective **believe** that the **changes in life** can be brought in by **applying** some form of **logic**.

**Perspective 3** says neither about **logic and mathematics** nor about **fate and destiny**, but it says about **unification of all** of them. It says that a **curve** is simply **a sequence of straight lines**. Now, if you compare it with your life, it would mean that **changes in life** occur after a **period of constant phases**. Like a straight line, you **progress **in life constantly** for some time**, and then you feel the **need to change**. So the change occurs, either by your own **will** or as you believe, by the **will of your fate**. After the change occurs, you walk with that change again through **constant **phase for some time, and then again you feel the need to change. * This is what life is!*Sequence of changes and constant phases is what constitutes this miraculous

**existence called LIFE**. The ups

**and downs**that you face one after the other

**throughout your life**are not actually ups and downs; they are changes that occur after a certain period of constant phase.

*; it will come*

**Change is the law of nature****naturally**even if you

**resist**it. But the

**direction of progression**of the

**curve**is entirely in your

**hands**. Only

**YOU**can decide which direction you want to

**steer your life**to! It’s always your choice, it always has been, and it will always be!

Whichever category of **perspective** you belong to or you **choose now**, none of them is **superior** to another, because they are all perspectives and they deserve to be **equal**!
